     The Main Three 

Cade Skywalker

The hero of the story, but hero may be a loose term to describe him. Cade was a Jedi Padawan who was separated from his fellow jedi and family when the Sith attacked the Jedi Temple on Ossus. After being rescued by a pirate crew, he became a pirate himself.

Despite his obvious inheritance, Cade doesn't want to know anything about either Jedi or Sith; he just want to be left alone. But as he's about to discover, sometimes things aren't the way one wishes, and that we must take what is given.
  • Gun And Sword: His most used weapon is a lightsaber, but unlike the Jedi (or the Sith) he isn't above using blasters, sometimes at the same time.
  • Healing Hands: Force Resuscitation. To wit; it can heal normally fatal wounds, and also kill much more efficiently than any known weapon. Two big drawbacks; it's fueled by the dark side (the Jedi on Ossus were trying to figure out how to fix this), and the recipient must accept it, or at least not actively reject it, or it won't work. It was made compatible with the light side later, though.
  • The Hero: He's forced to take this role by virtue of his bloodline only. If he had his own way, he'd still be smuggling and racking up bounties in the Outer Rim with no worries.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: After he comes into conflict with the Empire, Imperial media portrays him as a terrorist.
  • Screw Destiny: To the point that his father and Luke appear to him to get him back on track.

Jariah Syn

Cade's best friend and fellow pirate, Jariah would do anything for Cade. He's an expert in any kind of weapons, especially the rare ones, such as Yuuzan Vong bioweapons, and explosives.
  • Mage Killer: Hates Jedi after seeing one kill his father. Specializes in Yuuzhan Vong weaponry, over which the Force has no control. This caused some friction between him and Cade when he reveals he's a Jedi, but they got over it.

Deliah Blue

The third member of Cade's crew, Deliah is a Zeltron woman with a knack for mechanics. Has an obvious crush on Cade, given the amount of flirtration she does around him.
  • Follow the Leader: Zeltron characters in other Star Wars titles became popular for a while after her introduction.
  • Expy: Of Dani, the original Zeltron character from Marvel Star Wars.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Part of the Zeltrons' Hat, though she subverts the Zeltron hat by pursuing a committed, long-term relationship with Cade.
  • Woman Scorned: After Cade fooled around with Talon. They patched things up fairly quick, though.


The trusty droid that has served the Skywalker line for generations, and is given to Cade partway through the series. Apparently he was owned by K'Kruhk in the meantime. He doesn't receive the usual attention he usually does though, but does get a few gags and plot-important moments.

     The One Sith 

Darth Krayt

The main villain of the series, Darth Krayt is a powerful Sith Lord who abolished Bane's Rule of Two to instal the Rule of One. Unlike the other Sith Lords, rather than just gaining power for his own sake, Krayt seeks to bring order to the Galaxy, even if that means to commit genocide. Ruthless and unforgiving, Krayt rules the Galaxy with an iron fist.

He used to be a Jedi named A'Sharad Hett, who upon seeing the Republic and the Jedi order fall under Palpatine, plus the Yuuzan Vong invasion, decided to turn to the Dark Side and create a powerful New Sith Order that would keep the galaxy safe and united.
  • Becoming the Mask: Pretended to be a Sith Acolyte so the Force ghost of XoXaaan would train him.
  • Being Tortured Makes You Evil: He was already on his way, but torture at the hands of the Yuuzhan Vong sealed his fall to the Dark Side.
  • Big Bad: Of the entire series until the end of War, save for the interim period while he's dead, during which time Wyyrlok handled the role.
  • Body Horror: His Vong infection threatens to do this to him.
  • Darth Vader Clone: Shares many traits with Vader, down to being a fallen Jedi, though with the twist that he's the Big Bad rather than The Dragon (and his Dragon, Wyyrlok, more strongly resembles Vader's master, Palpatine).

Darth Wyyrlok (III)

The third of his name, Wyyrlok is a male Chagrian who serves as Krayt's most trusted advisor. until he thinks that Krayt isn't fit to rule anymore, and betrays him.
  • Legacy Character: He is the third Darth Wyyrlok and his daughter is meant to take on his role and Sith name.
  • Meaningful Name: His name sounds like "Warlock", and he's proficient in Sith magic.
  • Mouth of Sauron: Like his mother and grandfather, one of his tasks is to serve as the Voice of Krayt when the latter goes into hibernation.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: Like most members of The One Sith, Wyyrlok has completely tattooed himself red and black.
  • The Starscream: An interesting variation- he betrays Krayt only because he believes Krayt himself has already betrayed his own vision.

Darth Nihl

A male Nagai warlord turned Sith, who became Krayt's military commander. He lead the attack on Ossus' Jedi Temple, and killed Kol Skywalker.
  • Co-Dragons: With Talon in Legacy: War.
  • The Dragon: As a 'Hand'. He also becomes one to Wyyrlok, briefly.
  • Dragon Ascendant: Becomes the new leader of the One Sith after the final death of Emperor Krayt.
  • Evil Albino: Looks like one because of his white Nagai skin and his red Sith eyes.
  • Karma Houdini: Survives the war and leads the Sith into hiding, though he did lose his sword arm to Cade in a duel along the way.

Darth Talon

A female Twi'lek recently promoted to Sith Lady. Cold and dispassionate, she only seeks to do her master's bidding.

Darth Maladi

A Devaronian female Sith Lady expert in toxins, poisons, and chemicals as well as torture, interrogation and spying. Still, she's as good with a lightsaber as any other Sith.
  • Raised by Orcs: Her father was a Jedi. Krayt killed him and took Malincha into the Sith.

Darth Havok

A male Iktotchi Sith Lord, who serves as Inquisitor. His real name is Eshkar Niin, and used to be an Imperial Knight, until he betrayed the Empire, killed Empress Elliah Fel and joined the Sith.

Darth Stryfe

A male Sith Lord who serves as a military commander.

Darth Azard

Vul Isen

Darth Rauder

  • Bad Boss: This eventually got her killed by one of her subordinates after she ordered them to kill civilians.

Darth Maleval

Darth Kruhl

Darth Reave


Darth Wyyrlok's daughter.
  • Little Miss Badass: Being nothing more than an acolyte and defeats Darth Stryfe, a full-fledged Sith, using nothing more than telekinesis.

Darth Ruyn

     The Sith Empire 

High Moff/Grand Moff/Grand Admiral Morlish Veed

Moff Nyna Calixte/Morrigan Corde

  • Badass Normal: Survives being poisoned and shot at long enough to escape and seek her son's help. Also, as Corde, she manages to defeat a Sith Acolyte all by herself.
  • The Baroness: Older than usual, but has the personality.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: Interesting variant in that Cade's already figured it out long before she tells him directly. He's still not happy about it.
  • Wild Card: The mastermind behind the Sith-Imperial War but later becomes Roan Fel's mole.

Moff Rulf Yage

  • Red Baron: The "Hero of Ossus," though among the Jedi, he's "The Butcher of Ossus". He has come to resent the nickname.

Moff Fehlaaur'aitel'loro

  • The Stoic: His demeanor compared to the rest of the Moff Council

Moff Konrad Rus

Moff Geist

Admiral Krion Grail

Admiral Peto Kelsan

Admiral Dru Valan

Admiral Sha Dun

Captain Vaclen Tor

  • Anti-Mutiny: Leads one when Kelsan agrees to surrender to Stazi.

Captain Gunn Yage

Sergeant Ran Harkas

Corporal Anson Trask

     The Empire-In-Exile/Fel Empire 

Emperor Roan Fel

  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He's a fully-trained Imperial Knight and not someone to be taken lightly.
  • The Emperor: He has the strength of personality, but his authority is pretty much limited to the select few who follow him out of genuine loyalty. He allowed the military and his moffs to take the controversy surrounding the Ossus Project and run with it to start a war that ended with the galaxy being handed back to the Sith on a platter, and his tenure as emperor on Coruscant lasts only a few days.
  • Evil Overlord: Subverted; he's a ruthless but fair ruler, by all accounts.
    • This is epitomized in one scene from War in which he subverts the dickery of previous Emperors by choosing not to use chemical weapons on the Sith homeworld. Why? Because he's better than that.
    • Then played straight in the last issue, when he goes full Fallen Hero, as he gets so desperate to win, he's willing to use the aforementioned chemical weapon on Coruscant.
  • Head-in-the-Sand Management: He really should have known better than to trust Veed and Calixte, or to ally with the Sith during the Sith-Imperial War.
  • It's All About Me: As long as he's Emperor when the Sith are finished, he doesn't really give a damn what he has to do to accomplish that goal.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted. His intentions are to secure his own power, rather than to free the Galaxy. It's what separates him from Gar Stazi.

Empress Elliah Fel

Princess Marasiah Fel

Master Hogrum Chalk

Master Antares Draco

  • The Hero: Ironically much more so than Cade, the actual protagonist. Antares is very much Lawful Good and wants to serve his emperor, protect Marasiah and stop the One Sith. Despite being sorely tested, he doesn't slide anywhere near as close to the Dark Side as Cade, nor does he allow Emperor Fel to do so.
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: After revealing to the Sith vital information, under the false belief that they had Marshia Fel captured.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Whenether Roan Fel takes some morally questionable decisions, he's torn between loyaltly to him and to do what is right. When Fel, in order to extreminate the Sith, planned to use a lethal virus in order to wipe out all life on Coruscant (not knowing that it'll kill everything except the Sith), Antares fights and kills him.

Master Treis Sinde

Master Ganner Krieg

Master Sigel Dare

Master Azlyn Rae

  • A Fate Worse Than Death: The life-support armor Cade makes Bantha place her in. Subverted when she's given a new armor that doesn't require her to wear a Darth Vader-esque mask and helmet.
  • Heroes Want Redheads: She was Cade's girlfriend when the two were young and he's still attracted to her. And then there's Ganner.

Master Mohrgan Fel

General Oron Jaeger

Admiral Tohri Challon

Captain Edouard Fenel

     The Galactic Alliance Remnant 

Admiral Gar Stazi

  • Berserk Button: Never tell him about surrender. Unless it's the enemy's surrender.
  • Breakout Character: John Ostrander, the creator behind Stazi, only meant to include him on Trust Issues as a way to explain what had happened to the remnants of the Galactic Alliance. However, due to positive fan reaction and his own enjoyment in writing the character, Ostrander decided to expand the character further and create an arc that revolved around him.

Captain Jaius Yorub

  • Famous Last Words: "Though battles have been lost, the Alliance still lives. We have not surrendered, we do not concede the stars. We will win back our birthright. Freedom."

Captain Jhoram Bey

  • Ace Pilot: Starts off as the commander of Rogue Squadron.

Anj Dahl

Hondo Karr


  • Ace Pilot: Exaggerated. He's reckless to the point of being suicidal. He thinks that this makes him the best Rogue Squadron pilot.
  • Blood Knight: He enjoys fighting a bit too much.


     The New Jedi Order 

Master Kol Skywalker

Master Wolf Sazen

Master Shado Vao

"Bantha" Rawk/Nat Skywalker

Master K'Krukh

  • Made of Iron: Has survived several near-death experiences, including Order 66.

Master T'ra Saa

     Other characters 


Queen Jool

Karness Muur

One of the ancient fallen Jedi exiled from the Republic after the Hundred-Year Darkness, and an original-generation Sith Lord. His consciousness survived his body's death preserved within his talisman, and he would seek out any powerful force-sensitive to take as a host. By the time of Legacy, he's spent the last 160 years locked in a battle of wills with his current host, Celeste Morne.

Celeste Morne

A Jedi Knight from the time of the Mandalorian Wars. Imprisoned in stasis for 4000 years, she will stop at nothing to safeguard the ancient Muur Talisman, and prevent it's creator, Karness Muur, from being unleashed upon the galaxy again.

  • Action Girl: Par for the course for a Jedi Knight.
  • And I Must Scream: Four thousand years in what amounts to a Sith torture coffin, twenty stranded on a barren moon, and another 140 on an empty ship in deep space, with an evil ghost fighting her for control every minute.
  • The Beastmaster: She controls Rakghouls via the talisman.
  • Death Seeker: Centuries of captivity with a Sith Lord in her head have left her longing for the end.
  • Heroic Willpower: Almost 160 years pass between being woken up by Vader and her encounter with Cade. She's been resisting Muur's attempts to control her body for all that time
  • No Immortal Inertia: Her body crumbles into dust immediately after she dies.
  • Really 700 Years Old: She comes out of stasis a few months after the end of the Clone Wars. She looks exactly the same when she dies, a century-and-a-half later; the talisman having kept her young.

Luke Skywalker

  • Ascended to a Higher Plane of Existence: He's a force ghost. His time and nature of his death remained a mystery, but it's obvious that, after 130 years, even if he wasn't killed he would have died of old age.

Legacy Volume 2

     Ania and friends 

Ania Solo

The descendant of Han and Leia Organa Solo. Unlike some of her more famous relatives, she lives on the lower end of galactic society and operates a junkyard.


A survivor and refugee from the Destruction of Dac, Sauk is a friend of Ania's who gets dragged along as she gets in trouble with the local law.
  • Asteroid Miners: He worked on an asteroid mining ice, a job he considers relatively comfortable considering his situation.
  • Only Sane Man: Wants to get a slightly better job as an engineer on a starship versus vast wealth.


A centuries-old droid and a regular customer of Ania's.

Jao Assam

  • Sixth Ranger: Joins Ania's group, and travels with her alone after they decide to go after Wredd.

Comm Droid

  • Companion Cube: It clearly has more self-awareness then droids of its type usually show, but is nowhere near AG-37 or R2-D2 in sentience.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Its never given a name, and gets referred to as Little Droid, Comm Droid, Little Comm Droid...


Ania's droid that worked with her at her junk yard.

     Galactic Federation 

Yalta Val

  • Cool Old Guy: Although he's young enough to have black hair still, he's old enough to have trained Jao Assam.


Darth Wredd

  • Cool Mask: Though he was forced to wear it by his master, so he doesn't think it was very cool.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: How the galaxy views him. He's a self-proclaimed Darth, for instance. Which, admittedly, is how it should be.
  • General Ripper: While impersonating Yalta Val.
  • Helmets Are Hardly Heroic: Wore a helmet-like mask while an apprentice and puts it on Val after stealing his identity.
  • Last of His Kind: Due to miscalculating how far Jao was willing to go, he is ultimately the last chronological Sith in the Legends timeline when Ania shoots him instead of the Jedi killing him, finally ending the Sith once and for all.
  • Rule of Two: It's unknown if he and his master are One Sith or another bunch, but it was clearly just the two of them on that planet.
  • The Starscream: As with all Sith to his master. He was also successful.
  • Student and Master Team: Was the student to his master. It doesn't last long once he saw his opening, though. Also, from what was seen of it, the dynamic was reversed.
  • We Can Rule Together: The ultimatum he gives Val, who refuses.
  • White Hair, Black Heart: Has white hair to differentiate him from the real Val, who has black hair.
