Wes Janson (pronounced /Wěs Jǎn'-sǔn/) was an ace fighter pilot of the Alliance of Nations. Janson first joined the Alliance prior to the Battle of Yavin, but contracted an illness that prevented him from flying in that engagement. He later served with Rogue Squadron, the Allies's most elite fighters squadron. As a key member of the Rogues, he fought at the battles of Tordas, among others. Janson was the first executive officer of the squadron and saw action both in space and on the ground during commando missions against Warlord Zsinj.
