Tenel Ka Djo
Tenel Ka Djo was the daughter of the man who almost married Leia in The Courtship of Princess Leia
. A hot-headed princess, she was attending the Jedi Academy by the time of the Young Jedi Knights
series and was friends with the Solo children. An accident during a lightsaber training session against Jacen cost her an arm, that she refused to replace with a prosthetic. She eventually grew up to inherit the throne her mother and grandmother had held before her. She had a daughter with Jacen, but had to fake Allana's death to protect her from political opponents.
Allana Djo Solo
The young daughter of Jacen Solo and Tenel Ka Djo.
- Big Good: If the multitude of visions about her future are to be believed.
- The Chosen One: Allana seems to be headed this way with the frequency of people having visions of her sitting on the Throne of Balance (i.e. having some big part to play in leading the galaxy).
- In Vortex, Taalon sees the vision of Allana and is scared out of his mind of the idea of the galaxy being ruled by a "Jedi Queen." Even Abeloth seems determined not to let this future come to pass. In Conviction, a Sith strike team attempts to assassinate Tenel Ka because they (correctly) fear that she is or will be the mother of the Jedi Queen.
- In Apocalypse it's revealed that The Throne of Balance is actually where the being in charge of the Force itself sits. It's not just stepping stone to get to godhood, it is godhood.
- Faking the Dead: To hide her from the various groups trying to assassinate her, Tenel Ka pretended she perished in a nanovirus attack, then sent her to be adopted by her grandparents Han Solo and Leia Organa. Allana is now the war orphan Amelia Solo.
- Little Miss Badass: Is pressed into combat at nine years old.
- Small Girl, Big Gun: For her first combat experience, in Apocalypse. She gets a smaller weapon later on.
A cousin of Tenal Ka, Taryn Zel and her twin sister Trista are part of a secret Hapan organization that protects and serves the Queen Mother. After meeting Jedi Knight Zekk near the end of the Second Galactic Civil war, they entered into a relationship and became engaged after a secret mission together.

She eventually joins Fett after her mothers death and learning that he was nothing like she and her mother had thought.
- Action Girl
- Anti-Hero: Type III most of the time, but can be a Type IV on a bad day, like when she kills three unarmed GAG soldiers after being tortured by Darth Caedus.
- Bounty Hunter
- Happily Married: To Ghes.
- Odd Friendship: With Jaina Solo, because she is a Jedi and her brother killed Mirta's mother.
- Parental Abandonment: Both her parents end up dead: Marec dies in a hull breach accident and Ailyn is murdered by Jacen Solo.

A Mandalorian commando and bounty hunter, Beviin serves a Mandalore Boba Fett's chief advisor and lieutenant. He runs a small farm on Mandalore alongside his husband Medrit Vasur and their adopted daughter Dinua Jeban.
- Anti-Hero: Type II: while he sometimes does political assassinations, he only accepts bounties on criminals and the corrupt.
- Badass Gay
- The Berserker: He can clear his mind of anything else and have a singleminded focus on killing whatever is in front of him without mercy. The one time this is shown is when he is sparring with Jaina Solo, who gets freaked out by it since Goran is so nice and laid back the rest of the time.
- Bounty Hunter
- The Creon: He has had multiple opportunites to become Mandalore, something which Boba Fett would probably welcome, but Goran doesn't want the title anymore than Fett does.
- The Consigliere / Honest Advisor: For Fett: he never holds back on his opinion or criticism of how Fett is handling being Mandalore.
- Deadpan Snarker
- Happily Married
- Master Swordsman: He uses a beskad (a sword made out of Mandalorian iron) as his main weapon. He killed dozens of Yuuzhan Vong with it in hand-to-hand combat during the war.

- Straight Gay
A human Mandalorian commando who commands a small army of Mandalorians, Rhal was hired by Chief of State Natasi Daala to lay siege to the Jedi Temple and eliminate anyone who stood in her way. He proved to be a complete psychopath when he murdered Jedi Apprentice Kani Asari when she came out to negotiate on behalf of the Jedi, When he began to put down a peaceful slave protest by massacring everyone involved, including a reporter filming the event, two Jedi Knights dispatched to negotiate a solution captured him and turned him over to the authorities to be prosecuted.

- Action Girl
- Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: With Arbeloa, as a non-romantic example. In one issue, she asks him to relay orders to an army, only for him to tell her that she is their leader. She then points out that the height difference isn't very helpful for shouting commands to the rest of the army.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something
A close friend of King Caled, and a Yuuzhan Vong agent in disguise.

When that fails, she co-opts portions of the Lost Tribe of Sith to serve her. She is somehow related to The Ones, a group of Force entities encountered during The Clone Wars.
At the end of Fate of the Jedi
, her bodies have been destroyed along with a manifestation of herself in Beyond Shadows, but she will eventually reform, causing the Jedi Order to take steps to stop her for good when she returns.
