Elrik Vonreg is one of the secondary antagonists (alongside Commander Pyre) of Season 1 of Star Wars Resistance. He is a major baron of the First Order who is an officer of the First Order TIE Pilot Corps and is the leader of his own fighter squadron. During the Cold War, Vonreg spied on the New Republic and gathered intelligence for the First Order to use to undermine and overthrow the galactic government.
Later, Vonreg helped the First Order expand into the Outer Rim and eventually made it to the planet of Castilon where the First Order occupied the planet and the Colossus platform. During the occupation, Vonreg was a commander of the Colossus Garrison under the command of Commander Pyre. During the season, Vonreg was the main rival of Resistance spy, Kazudo Xiona.
Undermining the New Republic
Elrik Vonreg is a human male who was an officer of the First Order military and eventually reached the rank of Major Baron sometime before or duing 34 ABY. He had his very own personal First Order TIE Interceptor and even commanded his own fighter squadron within the TIE Corps. During the waning months of the Cold War, Vonreg attacked a squadron of New Republic starfighters in a surprise ambush and forced two of the three pilots to retreat while the third one, Kaz, stayed behind and engaged him head on. Vonreg attacked the squadron as they had intelligence on First Order operations in the Outer Rim Territories and he sought to prevent the intel from falling into enemy hands.
During the engagement, Vonreg was attacked by Poe Dameron of the Resistance and was forced to retreat before he could be shot down and fled into First Order territory. The major baron fled back to Starkiller Base in the Unknown Regions and the First Order's plans to annex Castilon and occupy the Colossus was now in the hands of the Resistance and Kaz was new recruited as a Resistance spy. Vonreg was now charged with aiding the First Order in securing the intel and preventing the First Order's expansion from being halted.
Conspiring with Pirates
Major Vonreg and Commander Pyre began conspiring to help spread First Order influence into Castilon and the Colossus where they could stop Kaz from spreading the intel to the New Republic. Wanting to covertly take over the platform, Pyre and Vonreg hired pirate gangs to attack the Colossus and threaten its security, allowing the First Order to arrive and give the appearance of peacekeepers. As part of the plan, a pirate gang lead by Kraga Gorr raided the Colossus, but failed and caused disappointment from Captain Phasma, Vonreg's superior when they reported their defeat.
Meeting with Doza
Sometime after the failed attack, Vonreg traveled on a freighter carrying much needed fuel supplies for the Colossus in order to commerce with the Imanuel Doza, the leader of the Colossus and a former Imperial Officer. Vonreg made it to Doza's office and cited the pirate attacks as a reason to accept the First Order as security while also making veil threats to him, but Doza rejected the offer. Vonreg walked off angered, but soon found himself running into Kaz, the pilot he engaged at the beginning of the series, and ordered the Stormtroopers accompanying him to capture the human spy. Kaz managed to avoid being captured and Vonreg was forced with retreat and withdraw empty handed.
