Can a rebel hero use adrenal stim (recover 3 strain and become focused) to recover damage on an ally figure that is not a hero figure (i.e. Luke)? Since ally figures do not have endurance they have no strain to recover.

The most relevant line I can find in the RRG says "If an effect allows a hero to recover more strain than he has suffered, he recovers one damage for each strain he cannot recover."

However that line also explicitly refers to hero figures and not other figures.

I am inclined to think the ally would recover the damage since they take damage when they would normally take strain and it seems reasonable for it to work the other way around as well.

No, as you pointed out, excess strain recovery doesn't do anything to non-hero-figures.

Also allies have the option to take strain even though they don't have endurance as they have not suffered strain to their endurance.

Curious what others have to say about this, too. Strain would be taken as damage for this figure, but I can't say that healing works the same way for certain.

Non heroes can choose to suffer strain as damage but they cannot recover damage from effecfs that recover strain.

Craig and Christian are right.

Only heroes are given the option to recover damage when they have suffered fewer strain than they are recovering. There is no rule that other figures should perform the same conversion.

Non-heroes do not have Endurance, and they cannot recover strain.
