Commander Lindon Javes is the commanding officer of Vanguard Squadron, a mixed fighter squadron of the New Republic. Lindon used to be a TIE-Fighter pilot and a captain of the Imperial Navy. He deserted after the destruction of Alderaan, when he was ordered to destroy a convoy of Alderaanian refugees. Instead of killing the refugees, he protected them from his former Squadron, Helix Squadron, until reinforcements from the Rebel Alliance could save the convoy. He joined the rebellion after the battle.

I was able to get better screencaps of the right boot with the flares and the cargo pocket.

Awesome! We also have some Millie capped for us- I'll get these all combined into one album and posted. Thank you Patricia! Fabulous work. Smile

This is fab work Smile

It's just sad that we cant make a generic version unless we find some refs to prove that others wear the costume.

I do not know if there any other human rebel officers in the game that wear this costume. I have not been able to get past this point in the game because it does not save my progress when I leave the game and turn off the XBoxOne. Every time I come back, I have to start playing the game from the prolog. It is so frustrating.

If you leave off the medallion (or whatever it is) and the flares on his boot, the outfit looks pretty generic.
We've seen similar outfits on other Alliance officers.
I could imagine building a generic uniform like that for myself.

For untrained eyes, Commander Lindon Javes looks similar to the officers in A New Hope or Rogue One but for people that research officers he is actually very unique.

The first obvious difference is his dog tag. Then comes the black color of his yoke and that it does not go all the way from the shoulder to the edge of the closure. It ends about 2 inches sooner than other jackets and leaves a tan/khaki colored area open. The last unique thing is that he has two code cylinders, similar to the ones imperial officers wear, in his top left pocket. The seams of the pocket flap must have spaces for them to fit trough. That is the first time we see that on that type of jacket.

He wears dark brown or black jackboots with a band of flares on top of the right boot. That is something that only one RFT in A New Hope has and the X-Wing pilots. Officers in A New Hope wear brown riding boots. Rogue One officers wear brown riding boots or the same boots with anklet cuffs that the Scarif Marine wears.

His cargo pants are also unique because the cargo pocket flaps are chevron-shaped like the flaps of TIE-Fighter flight suits in Return of the Jedi. A New Hope Officers wear tan-colored trousers with a black stripe. They also have a slight flare like jodhpurs. Many officers in Rogue One wear cargo pants in the colors tan, khaki, light brown (coyote brown), and dark brown but their cargo pocket flaps are rectangular.

The only thing that Lindon has that is straight from the movies is the shirt, and the brown belt with an octagonal belt buckle. Everything else is either modified to a certain degree or completely different.

I noticed that, but think these are minor differences so that a generic look can be maintained in order to recognize it as a Rebel officer without going for a specific, named character.

Not till we know its worn on none face characters. Otherwise for all we know, this is the only costume that has this particular combination of parts.

You need a reference to prove every costume combination...even if its blurry people in the background, at least then its been referenced.(then you can use the clearer images to do the breakdown) It why it takes so long with a lot of the new generics we have to scan all the screen caps.

Well, I took a break from writing my seminar paper and finished the story of Star Wars Squadrons. Lindon Javes is the only character with that exact outfit. So he has to be considered a hero/face character for the time being. A CS for a generic version cannot be written up until we have references of other characters wearing this outfit. I hope that it might show up in the comics or another game sooner or later.
