Admiral Castor Efrata-Landis is the current Grey Leader, and a two-time former Rebel Squadrons Fleet Commander and former member of Honorary HC.

Castor is perhaps most famous of all Former FCs. In his time he was a giant among men, and his quirky and influential personality won him the admiration of all who served with him. He designed the X-Wing Comtacs missions, and even before he entered the RS he was famous for his assistance on various forums to people who played X-Wing. Inside the RS, he quickly lept to command of the Academy after designing and implementing it, and was responsible for turning it into an instrument which could churn out new RS members quickly. His success in the Academy led ultimately to his election as Fleet Commander. In this position he was so popular that when he felt he made a misstep, he needed to bring himself up on charges with the Minister of Justice. The office of the MoJ was in fact created by Castor himself, and there was rampant speculation at the time that he brought himself up on these charges merely to establish the authority of the MoJ in its early days. During his tenure as FC, Castor influenced and promoted many members that would later become FCs themselves, including Jack Stewart and Dave Trebonious-Astoris.

After entering Grey Squadron upon joining, Castor learned to make missions, and took command of Grey at the beginning of they're Tour 2. Aj Loki had moved on to rebuild Red Squadron. As his experience with making missions grew and Tour 2 found a direction, he found that "Here ya go" wasn't good enough and the in-game briefing din't have near enough capability. He compensated for this by adding the bulk of the story - at that time even just a few paragraphs - to the Squadron News Letter. Tour 3 began and the additional fiction got substantially longer and more involved. This addition to the missions found it's way into the rest of the RS, adding depth to the tours not previously seen.

During his time as RSFC, he bought the original domain, financing it for a number of years, and wrote about 90% of the original set of pages. As the RS grew, he created the Internet, Graphics, Medals, Internal Affairs and External Affairs offices, along with the Minister of Justice seat.

After resigning the FC position, Castor remained interested in the RS and served as an Honorary Member of High Command. In addition, he continued as Grey Leader, churning out Grey Squadron's Tour 5, arguably one of the most enjoyable TOD's ever created, which took two years to complete and yielded a remarkable story 600 pages long. Castor currently the second person to sit twice in the RSFC chair, and among a host of other things is working on Grey Tour 6.
