Only undisciplined pilots with a death wish fly the yards.—Mac Rytin[src]

Mac Rytin was a Human male starfighter pilot who held the rank of lieutenant in the Rebel Alliance during the First Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire.


While a number of Rebel Pilots at that time were frequently testing their skills in the unofficial "Pilot Proving Grounds", competing to set the best time on a series of courses through a Rebel salvage yard hidden in an asteroid field, Rytin was disparaging of the practice, and posted a time in only a single course and dismissed the proving grounds as appealing to pilots with a death wish. In 3 ABY, Rytin was killed in action by Imperial forces some time prior to the Third Battle of Hoth.
