Will Scotian was a Human male who hailed from the planet Brentaal IV, where he grew up dreaming of becoming a hero and finding fortune among the stars while watching transports take off from Brentaal's immense spaceport. Scotian learned to pilot simple cargo skiffs for a local freight hauler and apprenticed aboard bulk freighters before joining the Rebel Alliance as a starfighter pilot. Scotian loved pushing his fighter to the limit, which proved adventurous during his training. He registered an outstanding combat record while serving at the Rebellion's Oracle Base in the Brak sector and later fought in the Battle of Hoth in 3 ABY. Scotian's excellent combat record soon convinced Rogue Leader Wedge Antilles to request his transfer into the elite Rogue Squadron. Scotian flew under the call sign Rogue Two.
Scotian participated in Rogue Squadron's failed mission to help Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia Organa, and Lando Calrissian rescue the carbonite-encased Han Solo from the bounty hunter Boba Fett on the moon of Gall in 3.5 ABY. During the Battle of Gall, Scotian and Rogue Squadron fought to hold off two Imperial II-class Star Destroyers and 144 TIE starfighters while the Rebels sneaked into the Imperial Enclave on Gall's surface in pursuit of Fett. Two TIE Fighters badly damaged Scotian's X-wing starfighter early in the engagement, forcing him to evacuate the combat zone, while Fett eventually escaped with Solo.
By the years of the New Republic, Scotian's service with Rogue Squadron had come to an end, although he experienced a short return to the squadron in 7.5 ABY, following the liberation of the galactic capital planet of Coruscant from Imperial control. The regular members of Rogue Squadron had resigned their commissions in the New Republic to wage an unsanctioned war against the forces of de facto Imperial leader Ysanne Isard, which prompted the New Republic to organize a temporary, ersatz Rogue Squadron, consisting of former squadron members, including Scotian, for morale purposes. Once Isard was defeated, the real Rogue Squadron returned to the New Republic, and Scotian returned to his previous unit.
- Will Scotian, like R3-T2, is a purely Expanded Universe character, despite making cameos in the movies.
