this Bothan served as a Captain in the military of the Galactic Allaince, and was also an aide to Admiral Nek Bwua'tu, during the years following the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. He often badgered his way to a position of strength by invoking the names of his honored family members, and he was quick to point out that Admiral Bwua'tu was his mother's uncle. He was also related to several Bothans who served aboard the Avengeance, although he was torn between his loyalty to the Galactic Alliance and the Bothan need to complete the ar'kai against the Yuuzhan Vong. During the blockade of the Murgo Choke, about a year after the Qoribu Crisis, Captain Wurf'al served under Admiral Bwua'tu aboard the Admiral Ackbar. When Leia Organa Solo discovered that the spinglass statuary of Admiral Bwua'tu contained assassin bugs from the Gorog hive, Wurf'al was the first officer hit by the swarm. In seconds, he was reduced to a lifeless mass of flesh, as the insects cut him apart with swift precision.
