A who’s who of the lat­est Star Wars Story

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Rogue one a star wars story -

JYN ERSO Jones alias Felic­ity

A self - con­fused rebel with a rap sheet in­clud­ing forg­ing im­pe­rial doc­u­ments, as­sault, re­sist­ing ar­rest and more. She's the daugh­ter of noted sci­en­tist Galen Erso - ap­par­ently a ma­jor rea­son she was re­cruited for the Death star mis­sion, al­though she's been fend­ing for her­self if since she was 15.

BAZE MALBUS alias Wen Jiang

Chirrut Îmwe’s bodyguard and friend, but with a rather dif­fer­ent out­look on life – less in­ter­ested in spir­i­tu­al­ity and the Force, more in­ter­ested in us­ing heavy weaponry. No love for the Em­pire, who he ac­cuses of “de­stroy­ing my home”.


A Rebel Al­liance in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cer re­spon­si­ble for su­per­vis­ing and ac­com­pa­ny­ing Jyn Erso on the mis­sion to steal Death Star plans. Re­ports say he is calm un­der pres­sure and has the abil­ity to de­liver re­sults even when op­er­at­ing with min­i­mal re­sources.

K-2SO alias Alan Tudyk

Built as an Im­pe­rial “en­forcer” droid (es­sen­tially a 7’1” se­cu­rity guy), he’s since been re­pro­grammed by Cap­tain Andor to be­come part of the Rebel Al­liance. Tact cir­cuits are clearly mal­func­tion­ing be­cause he re­port­edly has a ten­dency to say what­ever he wants.

BODHI ROOK alias Riz Ahmed

Con­scripted to be a cargo pi­lot for the Em­pire, this na­tive of the planet Jedha has since de­fected to join the Rebel cause – though he still wears Im­pe­rial in­signia on his uni­form. Highly skilled but anx­ious.

GALEN ERSO alias Mads Mikkelsen

Ex­pert on en­ergy gen­er­a­tion, Di­rec­tor Or­son hired by Kren­nic to work Death Star project on the be­lieves – though Erso his re­search more hu­man­i­tar­ian will be used in ways. Has a with Kren­nic, his­tory who res­cued Lyra and daugh­ter him, wife Jyn from Sep­a­ratists dur­ing the Clone Wars.
