All spoilers regarding the Prequel Trilogy, the Original Trilogy, and The Clone Wars are unmarked. Examples relating to Disney's EU and the new movies can be spoiler-tagged if deemed necessary.
Tropes specifically applying to the characters based on their appearances in Star Wars Legends can be found here.
The heart of galactic society, the Core Worlds contain the richest and most populous planets in the galaxy. The outer regions of the galaxy regard most inhabitants of the Core as snobs who look down upon them, which is often true. Due to the densely packed stars of the Core navigation of the region can be difficult, especially in the Deep Core. At the heart of the Deep Core is a blackhole said to hold the galaxy together. Additionally, a mysterious world known as the Wellspring of Light lies within the Deep Core and is said to be the homeworld of the Midi-chlorians.
One of the most prosperous and peaceful planets in the galaxy, Alderaan is a mountainous world ruled by a monarchy. Renowned for their great and peaceful culture, Alderaan was highly supportive of the Galactic Republic. Following the rise of the Empire, the world became a primary source of recruitment for the Rebellion, with several of the movement's founders hailing from Alderaan. This earned the ire of the Empire, which led to Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin destroying Alderaan with the first Death Star.
- Adopted into Royalty: Alderaanian culture considers children adopted by the ruling family to be official members of the royal bloodline and thus eligible to inherit the throne and any other titles and positions that might come with it (the same rule applies to the offspring of adopted children, too).
- Apocalypse How: Scope Planetary after the Death Star's superlaser destroys the entire planet, leaving behind only some scattered debris known as the Alderaanian graveyard. The severity level is somewhere between Societal Disruption and Total Extinction; although all life on Alderaan is completely wiped out, there are some human survivors who were fortunately offworld at the time (as well as hybrid races such as the Alder-Espirion). Many of them gather together in a flotilla of starships in the Alderaanian graveyard and continue to survive and uphold Alderaanian culture, with support from other worlds.
- Big Fancy Castle / Bright Castle: The Royal Palace of Alderaan, the official residence of the Organa family, is a sci-fi variation. It was built into a mountainside overlooking Aldera nearly a thousand years before Princess Leia was born and is a prime example of Alderaan's simplistically elegant architecture, designed to complement the natural surroundings of the mountains rather than stand out like an eyesore. It has numerous towers and hundreds of rooms, having been expanded so many times over the centuries it would be easy to get lost.
- Crystal Spires and Togas: Although we don't see much of the planet itself, Alderaan's overall aesthetic appears to be this trope; its architecture consists of sleek and gleaming high rise buildings and its people seem to favour simplistic but elegant clothing reminiscent of Ancient Greece and Rome, or the Renaissance. While their ships tend to have a clunkier Used Future aesthetic, the interiors are noticeably cleaner and sleeker-looking than most Rebel ships.
- Doomed Hometown: For many Alderaanians who were off-world at the time, the destruction of their homeplanet inspired them to begin resisting the Empire.
- Dying Race: Following the events of A New Hope, Alderaanian humans become an endangered species. The majority of Alderaan's population were killed when their planet was destroyed, but there were Alderaanians who were offworld at the time, or had settled in colonies on other planets. Led by Leia, the surviving Alderaanians do what they can to ensure their culture is preserved for future generations.
- Earth-Shattering Kaboom: The Empire mercilessly destroys the planet using the Death Star in an infamous Kick the Dog moment.Obi-Wan Kenobi: I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.
- Feudal Future: Alderaan is a hereditary monarchy. However, it is still a peaceful and prosperous world and it's rulers seem to be just and benevolent; at the very least, the last monarch of Alderaan, Breha Organa, is depicted as The High Queen, while Princess Leia is a brave and selfless Politically Active Princess, as well as a commander in the Rebel Alliance.
- Hufflepuff House: We only get very brief glimpses of Alderaan from space before the Death Star blows all its people up. We do get a closer, but still brief look at the planet in Revenge of the Sith, whilst the episode "Assassin" in The Clone Wars is set primarily on Alderaan.
- In Harmony with Nature: Alderaanians try to show care and respect for the natural world, rather than exploit it. Their world is largely free of pollution and they intentionally build their cities to blend-in with the natural beauty of the environment; for example, the royal palace in Aldera is designed to resemble the nearby mountains.
- Inspirational Martyr: A planetary example. Alderaan's destruction via the Death Star caused galaxy-wide outrage and inspired many people to join the Rebel Alliance (ironically resulting in the opposite of what Tarkin hoped to achieve by destroying the planet).
- Perfect Pacifist People: Most Alderaanians are averse to violence, and instead seek to inspire by example, and as the quote above shows this approach has mostly worked. Leia even claims that Alderaan has no weapons or defenses when Tarkin threatens to destroy it, and the downside of this trope is shown when Tarkin destroys the planet unopposed. Notably, not all Alderaanians are pacifists, with many joining the Rebellion even prior to their homeworld's destruction. Leia is a very capable soldier and leader, Rebel General Carlist Rieekan also fought in the Clone Wars, and Bail himself has been known to carry a blaster.
- Shining City: The capital, Aldera (as seen on the page image). It's filled with sleek and shiny high-rise buildings and has picturesque surroundings, being situated on an island in the middle of a lake, surrounded by mountains.
Queen Breha Organa
Queen of Alderaan, wife of Senator Bail Organa, and adoptive mother of Leia Organa. Like her husband, Breha played a key role in creating the Rebel Alliance.
- Ambiguous Situation: It's unclear if she knew that Leia was the daughter of Padmé Amidala and Anakin Skywalker. Bail's message to Leia revealing the truth of her parentage (as seen in Bloodline) implies that Bail didn't tell his wife the whole truth about Leia's parentage, but it remains vague as to how much she knew.
- Benevolent Conspiracy: She knew of and was actively involved in the Rebel Alliance almost from the get-go.
- Character Death: She died when Alderaan was destroyed by the Death Star.
- Cyborg: Pulmonodes replaced her heart and lungs after a near fatal accident she suffered while descending from Appenza Peak during her Challenge of Body to prove herself worthy of Alderaan's throne. Most people choose to cover up their cybernetics, but Breha wears hers proudly.
- Dramatic Irony:
- In Queen's Shadow, she has a conversation with Padmé about marriage and children, and it's pointed out that her children will be destined for a life in politics, while any kids the Senator has will be free to choose for themselves. Just under a decade later, Breha and Bail will adopt Padmé's daughter as their own.
- In A Certain Point of View, CZ-70B discusses with Breha how Leia altered her diplomatic record to say she was fluent in Shyriiwook (the Wookiee language), when shes actually just "proficient" in it. Breha reassures the droid, saying she can't think of a situation where Leia would even need to use Shyriiwook. Just days later, Leia is rescued from the Death Star by Chewbacca, who becomes her lifelong friend.
- Face Death with Dignity: Breha dies holding hands with her beloved husband, feeling certain their daughter at least still lives.
- Foil: Subtly to Vader. She also requires prosthetics to stay alive and wears them openly as a sign of strength. But compared to Vader, who was deliberately designed to come off as intimidating and monstrous, Breha does so to show there's no shame or inhumanity in being a cyborg, and Leia often describes them as warm and comforting, like a light in her heart. And while Leia repeatedly insists that Breha is her mother, she disowns her biological parent Anakin and wants nothing to do with him.
- Good Parents: With Bail to their adopted daughter Leia.
- Gut Feeling: Moments before Alderaan's destruction, she instinctively believes Leia is still alive.
- Happily Married: Leia described her and Bail as soulmates, and noted that it took a while for her to realize not all relationships were as happy as her parents'.
- The High Queen: Under her leadership, Alderaan is established as one of the most peaceful, beautiful, and cultured planets in the galaxy that serves as an inspiration to other planets, even under the tyranny of the Empire. One of her final acts when she learned the Death Star was orbiting her planet was to advocate evacuating as many people as possible (though she soon realized this was futile).
- Law of Inverse Fertility: Downplayed. She and Bail always wanted kids, but the stress placed on her body due to earlier injuries would've made conceiving a child difficult. As a result, she and Bail chose to adopt a child instead, becoming Leia's parents after her biological mother died.
- Light Is Good: Her prosthetic organs glow softly, and Leia compares it to a bouquet of glowing flowers in her heart. Compared to other examples of artificial body parts in the universe, which are portrayed as coldly mechanical at best and a sign of inhumanity at worst, Breha's pulmonodes are depicted as beautiful and comforting.
- The Mentor: She personally tutored several young Alderaanian women, among them Evaan, a rebel pilot who swore Undying Loyalty to the Alderaanian monarchy and joined the Rebellion as a result.
- Minor Major Character: Despite being Leia's adoptive mother, ruler of Alderaan and a founding member of the Rebel Alliance, Breha isn't featured much in the installments associated with the Canon; in the theatrical films, she only shows up once in a non-speaking role at the end of Revenge of the Sith. Claudia Gray said she was very surprised by how little focus Breha had received and so gave her a central role in the novel Leia, Princess of Alderaan, which greatly expands upon Breha's character.
- Near-Death Experience: In her youth, she suffered a terrible accident during her Challenge of the Body (which involved climbing mountains) and some of her internal organs were replaced by pulmonodes due to the injuries she sustained. She wears her cybernetics proudly as a sign she survived.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something:
- In addition to her duties ruling Alderaan, Breha took the time to tutor some Alderaanian students personally.
- She's also a master of several forms of hand-to-hand fighting, something that many people — not even her own daughter, Leia — were aware of.
- Breha was also one of the early leaders of the rebellion, helping to direct its finances in the founding of secret bases and shipyards.
- Ruling Couple: With Bail. She is queen of Alderaan and actively involved in the running of her planet, while Bail is Alderaan's senator and later her viceroy, with the two often advising each other on important matters.
- Scaling the Summit: At the age of sixteen, she climbed Appenza's Peak, one of Alderaan's most iconic mountains, to prove herself worthy of the throne. She made it up okay, but suffered a near-fatal fall during the descent.
- Schrödinger's Canon: She is from House Antilles (meaning she is a relative of Raymus Antilles) and has three sisters.
- True Blue Femininity: The outfit she wears in Revenge of the Sith is primarily blue.
- War Hawk: Although she dreads fighting against the Empire, Breha is convinced that nothing but armed insurrection will free the galaxy from Palpatine's tyranny and pushes for the nascent rebellion to begin arming, to the alarm of several of her co-conspirators. It takes her a long time to convince Bail to come around to that point of view.
WA-2V, AKA "TooVee"
Model: Attendant droid
Princess Leia's personal attendant droid.
- Character Death: She was on Alderaan when it got blown up.
- The Fashionista: Her job is to make Leia as beautiful as possible and she will not fail in it. She created Leia's many hairstyles and most of her outfits and keeps up to date with the latest fashions. Leia would actually prefer to dress simply, but TooVee won't allow it.
- Robot Buddy: To Leia. It's notable that Leia continues to style her hair after TooVee's death even though she would not, possibly as a tribute to her.
A member of the Apprentice Legislature under the Empire, who aspired to become a historian. He formed a romantic relationship with Princess Leia, though it ultimately ended in tragedy.
- Actual Pacifist: As a strong believer in Alderaanian ideals, he doesn't want another war or anything similar to happen, especially if his homeworld and Leia may be the victims. When he learns that the Organa family is involved in the Rebellion, he tries to reveal this to the Empire because the rebels are trying to start a war that would inevitably get people killed and would ruin the peace.
- All for Nothing: His attempts to reveal the Rebels' activities to the Empire ultimately end in failure; to further add salt in the wound, Alderaan ends up being destroyed anyway in about three years, which was what he was trying to prevent from the start.
- Ambiguously Brown: He's described as having dark brown hair and a golden tan; Claudia Gray (the author of Leia, Princess of Alderaan) said she imagined him as a young Rami Malek (who is of Egyptian descent).
- Anti-Hero: At heart, Kier only wants what's best for Alderaan, including avoiding another devastating war that would get millions killed. His love of his homeworld even overrides his fear of the Empire when it comes to trying to protect it. However, his methods of doing so involve him trying to turn the rebels over to the Empire, even though their entire goal is to free the galaxy from the Empire's tyranny, also betraying Leia's trust in the process.
- Did They or Didn't They?: The narrative is deliberately ambiguous about whether or not Kier and Leia slept together the night they visited the Coruscant garden.
- Doomed by Canon: It's a Foregone Conclusion that Kier and Leia's romance is doomed, as she ends up with Han. Kier is accidentally killed in an explosion in the Paucris system, while attempting to spy on the Rebellion.
- Due to the Dead: Leia retrieves his body after his death and returns him to his family for burial on Alderaan.
- First Love: He was Leia's first love. Obviously, it doesn't last. He gets killed after he tries to rat out the Rebellion.
- Foil: As Word of God puts it, he's the exact opposite of Han, except the both of them think that Leia ought to have a personal life.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Played with. His parents are told he died saving Leia from a small-craft accident in Alderaan's atmosphere. However, in actual fact he was killed accidentally trying to spy on the Rebellion; although he may have seen this as a Heroic Sacrifice due to his views on the rebels, it isn't really presented as such by the narrative.
- Hypothetical Casting: Word of God sees him as being played by Rami Malek.
- Last Request: After being mortally wounded in an explosion, he asks Leia to deliver a memory rod containing information he'd collected on the Rebellion to the Empire. She only pretends to agree to this to comfort him.
- Let Them Die Happy: Leia reassures Kier as he dies that she'll turn in the Rebellion to save Alderaan, having absolutely no intentions of doing so and destroying the evidence he gathered once he died.
- The Lost Lenore: Despite his betrayal, Leia still misses him (partly because she got Kier in the situation in the first place), to the point that even decades later in Bloodline, she still has a lock of his hair.
- Secret Keeper: A subverted one for Leia. After they begin a relationship, she confides in him that her parents are leading members of the Rebel Alliance. However, Kier secretly intends to inform the Empire of this, though he never gets to do so before his death, taking the secret to the grave.
- Walking Spoiler: A lot of his tropes contain spoilers for Leia, Princess of Alderaan.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: He is so devoted to Alderaan's pacifist values and to wanting to protect Leia, he gathers sensitive information on the Rebellion with the intention of handing it over to the Empire, hoping that this will prevent war.
The leader of the Melodic Order, a cloister group of Alderaanian musicians performing on Naboo. She initially hides the destruction of their homeworld from the rest of the order before they are recruited by Leia in her journey to unite the survivors of Alderaan.
- The Atoner: Initially feels that she deserves to die for hiding the destruction of Alderaan from the Melodic Order in order to keep them performing at Club Deeja, which she was getting a cut of the profits from.
- HeelFace Turn: Shoots her business partner Mul Sanaka in the back just before he shoots Leia.
- Ms. Exposition: Leia asks her what she knows about Espirion as a way of determining if she should be sent as an ambassador to them, which results in a mini-Info Dump from Pareece about the world.
- Tears of Remorse: When admitting to Leia that she had been lying to the Melodic Order.
A singer in the Melodic Order, Tace is among the Alderaanians who are gathered by Leia following the destruction of their homeworld.
- Bad Liar: When Leia attempts to use Tace to get information from Tula, Commander Dreed sees through her in just a few seconds.
- Bald Woman: Shaves her head after learning that she was unwittingly feeding the Imperials information through her sister, both as penance and to lessen her resemblance to her traitorous sibling.
- Sibling Yin-Yang: While she joined a monastic order of singers, her sister Tula became an Imperial officer.
- Unwitting Pawn: To Dreed, who forced her sister Tula, an Imperial officer, to get information from Tace in order to hunt down Leia and the other Alderaanian survivors.
Preserver Jora Astane
The Preserver of a community of Alderaanians living in a hidden underground enclave on Sullust. Following the destruction of Alderaan, paranoia has gripped the community about the Empire discovering them, which leads to a misunderstanding when Princess Leia arrives at the same time a Imperial Star Destroyer arrives. Astane then joins her community with Leia's growing fleet of Alderaanian refugees.
- Fantastic Racism: She is disgusted upon discovering that the Alderaanians who settled on Espirion have interbred with the natives, creating the mixed-species Alder-Espirions. Astane later comments that she views this a further "dilution" of the endangered Alderaanian people.Astane: Our world is dead, Sir. All we have left is our identity. Don't ask me to celebrate its dilution.
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: Introduced as a paranoid, abrasive, and obstructive leader who nearly ends up killing Leia before apologizing and swearing loyalty to her. After which, Astane continues to be paranoid, abrasive, and obstructive before being revealed as a racist who botches a critical negotiation.
- The Load: Causes nothing but problems for Leia on her mission to gather the scattered Alderaanians.
- Mythology Gag: She's an Alderaanian with white hair, a trait she shares with numerous Alderaanians in Legends such as Winter Celchu and Jahan Cross. Though on the other hand, she may just have white hair because she's old.
- Properly Paranoid: Although she is a massive jerk, the Empire is hunting down Alderaanians and there is a spy, albeit an unwitting one, aboard Leia's ship.

A Core World planet that is home to the University of Bar'leth.
An archaeology professor at the University of Bar'leth.
- Dean Bitterman: He is a "Sava", which is vaguely equivalent to the rank of Dean. He sabotages Aphra's academic career simply because he hates her.
- Evil Is Petty: Oh, yes. He ousted Korin Pers to take her position and then made sure she could never work in academia again just to rub it in. He granted Aphra doctoral supervision just so he could dangle it in front of her and then take it away. Even after he dies, his will sends out just enough information to strip Aphra of her degree as one final spiteful act, and is only foiled because he sent it to Aphra's father, who despite being estranged from her isn't so detached that he'd ruin her life.
- Jerkass Has a Point: As petty and arrogant he is, Toob-Nix has a lot of legitimate criticisms of Aphra, whose doctoral project is a total bust and turns out to be even more morally bankrupt than him.
- Mad Scientist: He is illegally studying Abersyn symbiotes, which are so dangerous that the Empire requires that they be incinerated. Out of revenge, Aphra steals his test subjects, passes them off as her own discovery, and hands them over to the Empire.
- The Starscream: Drove Korin Pers out of academia so he take her place. Aphra clearly preferred her and says as much to him.
Sava Korin Pers
A student at the University of Bar'leth and a friend of Aphra's.
- Curtains Match the Window: Her eyes and hair are ginger-colored.
- Life's Work Ruined: After Aphra "discovers" several hibernating Abersyn symbiotes on Boothi XII, Susina vows to stay on the planet for decades to study them, not realizing that Aphra's discovery was a fake. Issue #1 ends with the revelation that Aphra's deception has been revealed, rendering all her years of work useless.
A lush and lively Core World. After the Battle of Endor and Emperor Palpatine's death, Chandrila was instated as the temporary capital of the New Republic, with New Republic Chief of State Mon Mothma as the new Chancellor. However, after an attack on Hanna City on Liberation Day, this led to calls to relocate the New Republic capital to another world, which eventually was chosen to be Hosnian Prime.
A reporter for the Queen of the Core Network, a HoloNet news network that emerged after the Battle of Endor. Tracene was a journalist on Chandrila who worked with her cameraman, Lug, to report on developments on Chandrila and other places in regards to the end of the Galactic Civil War.
- Commonality Connection: A little. Her first interview is of Olia, of which this is her first time being interviewed. The both of them are nervous, but encourage each other before they start rolling the film.
- Nice Girl: She's friendly and hardly means any unprovoked harm to others.
- True Companions: She and Lug were close friends, and she mourns his death when he gets killed after uploading one of their reports to the point where she makes a special broadcast on the spot in memoriam of him.
A Trandoshan cameraman that worked for the Queen of the Core Network alongside his journalist colleague, Tracene Kane. He was killed by a TIE fighter suicide attack while covering the Battle of Binjai-Tin.
- Adorkable: He's awkward at giving hugs and once compared himself to being like the warmth of a protocol droid trying to romance a tree stump.
- Nice Guy: Unlike most Trandoshans, he's not a Blood Knight or even a Jerkass at the very minimum.
- White Sheep: He may have grown up influenced by his people's love for hunting and bloodthirstiness, but it's not something he's into and he'd rather focus on other things.
Model: Protocol droid
Leia and Han's nanny droid, ordered by Han to watch over the pregnant Leia and later babysit an infant Ben.
- Affectionate Nickname: Elsie.
- Hidden Wire: Senator Wartol, Chancellor Mon Mothma's rival, planted a listening device in Elsie to spy on Mothma and her allies. This becomes a problem for Mothma's PR when Elsie is present during conversations about the Imperial remnants being on Jakku, as Wartol leaks this to the press and accuses Mothma of being weak. Condor later removes the device, allowing Mothma to confront Wartol about his political espionage.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Since he was bugged by Wartol, this allows Wartol to leak to the press that there are Imperials on Jakku and use this against Mon Mothma's reputation.
Model: Class 3 culinary septic droid
Leia and Han's chef droid. At one point, T-2LC went out on errands for Leia, leaving BX to care for infant Ben himself, which almost became a deadly ordeal.
- Affectionate Nickname: BX or Beex.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: He gets transmitted a kill order to kill organics. The closest organic in the vicinity when he receives this order is an infant Ben, and no one else is around... Thankfully, the transmitter is shut down before he can kill Ben.
- Cloudcuckoolander: He has an obsession with caf, making it to his masters and guests even when they turn down his offer or didn't ask for it in the first place. He even makes caf for an infant Ben.
- Multi-Armed Multitasking: He has seven arms, which makes cooking more complex dishes easier.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Averted when he makes an attempt on Ben's life, unless you count him using his knife-specific arm.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: When he's Brainwashed and Crazy.
- Would Hurt a Child: While Brainwashed and Crazy, he almost decapitates baby Ben with his knife arm.
A Core World home to many famous ace pilots and starships, including the well-known starship manufacturer, the Corellian Engineering Corporation. During the reign of the Empire, a local anti-Imperial insurgency known as the Corellian Resistance operated on the world.
- Ace Pilot: For whatever reason, they sure have a lot of well-known pilots from there. Having a Cool Ship Corporation might've started this or it was the other way around.
- Cool Ship: The mainstay of Corellian industry is the production of these. A lot of ships, like the YT-1300* , VCX-100* , YV-666* , YT-2400* , Imperial freighters, rebel blockade runners* and G9 rigger freighters* are manufactured there.
- Fantastic Slurs: Street children of Corellia are called "scrumrats".
- Feudal Future: Expanded material reveals that in ancient times, Corellia was ruled by royalty, although this no longer seems to be the case by the era of the Empire.
- Industrial Ghetto / Wrong Side of the Tracks: Coronet City already comes across as a Wretched Hive, but it's indicated that the "Silo", located in the Bottoms district, is a particularly dire place to live; it includes a 'freighter boneyard' filled with broken-down freighters and was once a swamp before the water was drained to make way for factories. Qi'ra apparently grew up there until the White Worms "pulled [her] out of that", with the implication being that working for them was an improvement over the Silo.
- Wretched Hive: The part of Corellia Han Solo grew up in - Coronet City, specifically - isn't pleasant; it's a bleak, grimy slum riddled with crime, where some criminals are known to force street kids to steal valuables in exchange for food and shelter. There are few opportunities to get a better life, save for joining the Imperial Army, bribing your way out (which can backfire) or joining a more powerful criminal syndicate.
A detective active during the Coronet City revolution caused by the Acolytes of the Beyond after the destruction of the Death Star II. After taking in a boy named Remi to Peace & Security station after finding him vandalizing property with zealotry for the late Darth Vader, Remi cut off one of Erno's arms and escaped with fellow Acolyte Kiza.
L.T.S.O Falthina Sharest
The Lead Transport Security Officer for the Coronet Spaceport during the reign of the Empire. Han Solo and Qi'ra attempt to bribe her with coaxium to get past the checkpoint.
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: She betrays her employers to allow Han and Qi'ra to slip by quietly without proper authorization in exchange for a stolen vial of coaxium. Then, the moment the White Worms gang turn up, she backstabs them by issuing a security alert and shutting the gate.
- Dirty Cop: Strictly speaking she's a security officer rather than a cop, but she otherwise fits the bill, being willing to break the rules and abuse her position to get her hands on some very valuable coaxium.
- Hated Hometown: According to the novelization, she has a low opinion of Corellia, dreaming of moving offworld to see other planets and only intending to return to visit her sister.
- Small Role, Big Impact: Allowing Han and Qi'ra to pass the checkpoint then double-crossing them changes both their lives drastically; Han escapes and goes on to become a smuggler and then eventually a rebel general, while Qi'ra is recaptured by the White Worms and works her way up to become a lieutenant in the Crimson Dawn syndicate.
- Soul-Crushing Desk Job: The novelization reveals she really doesnt like her job, finding it extremely dull. Two street kids trying to bribe her with stolen coaxium is probably the most exciting thing to happen to her in a while.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: Arguably for the Empire. If she hadn't let Han through the checkpoint, enabling him to escape Corellia, he just might never have ended up joining the Rebel Alliance in about ten years, where he is integral in bringing the Empire down.
Han Solo's father
The father of the famed smuggler and Rebel general, who worked in one of the Corellian Engineering Corporation's freighter factories until he was laid off. He was also the paternal grandfather of Ben Solo/Kylo Ren.
- The Alcoholic: Han mentions that his father used to drink a lot in Most Wanted. Jon Kasdan indicated he may have eventually drank himself to death.
- Alcoholic Parent: Was this to Han.
- No Name Given: His name is never mentioned. In Legends, Han's father's name was Jonash Solo, although in Canon Solo was not Han's original surname, he being given it by an Imperial recruiter after Han stated he didn't belong to any family.
- Parental Abandonment: According to the novelization of Solo, he eventually abandoned Han when he was still a child, although the Ultimate Guide states, and Han implies in the film itself, that his father died at some point. Either way, Han ended up on the streets by the time he was ten.
- Parental Issues: Although their exact relationship isn't really elaborated on, Han states he was never close to his father and Jon Kasdan describes him as having "a complicated, difficult relationship with his son".
- Posthumous Character: It's strongly implied he's dead by the events of Solo. He would almost certainly be dead by the events of the Sequel Trilogy, at the very least.
- Tragic Dream: Han states that he dreamed of becoming a pilot and leaving Corellia for a better life, but was never able to afford it.
A Rodian who competes in illegal street races in Coronet City. He and his younger brother Tsuulo found themselves stranded on Corellia after the deaths of their parents.
- Cool Car: Has a customised green speeder he uses for racing, complete with holographic flames on the sides... At least until it was stolen by Han, Qi'ra and Tsuulo. After Tsuulo is killed by the Kaldana Syndicate, the Droid Gotra presents Reezo with a new speeder as thanks for his brother helping them.
- Parental Abandonment: Both of his parents were killed in a speeder accident while on a family trip to Corellia.
- Sibling Rivalry: After Reezo lost all the money they inherited from their dead parents betting on a race, Tsuulo stopped talking to Reezo and he left to join the White Worms.
Prince-Admiral Jonashe Solo
A member of ancient Corellian royalty, who shares his surname with Han Solo.
- Famous Ancestor: A Snivvian bounty hunter claimed that he's this to Han Solo, however this is never mentioned by Han himself and given that Solo wasn't his original surname, it seems a dubious claim, at best.
- Mythology Gag: In Legends, Han Solo's father was named Jonash Solo.
- Posthumous Character: He lived centuries before Han Solo was born.
- Warrior Prince: If his full title of "Prince-Admiral" is anything to go by.

A city world. A couple of years before the eve of the Galactic Civil War, it was heavily occupied by the Empire, also being home to the Corulag Imperial Academy.
- Aristocrats Are Evil: A large portion of the Corulag populace is supportive of the Empire, and there's some sort of nobility system in the culture, considering at least two Imperials are known to be from Corulag and hold the noble title of Baron.
A temperate planet, home to the Duros species.
- Cad Bane on the Bounty Hunters and Mercenaries: Republic Era page.
A heavily settled Core World, Hosnian Prime was the temporary rotating capital of the New Republic around thirty years after the Battle of Endor. Home to the New Republic Senate and primary fleet, it was destroyed along with the rest of the Hosnian System when the First Order utilized Starkiller Base to deliver a crippling blow to the New Republic.
- Apocalypse How: Scope Stellar; Starkiller Base takes out not just Hosnian Prime but the entire Hosnian system (although the star it orbited is left intact). The severity level isn't fully clear yet, but every living thing on the planets in the system is annihilated, which likely resulted in some extinctions.
- City Planet: Similar to Coruscant, this planet is one big city. Unlike Coruscant though, the city doesn't cover the entire planet, but is separated into different cities albeit very large ones.
- Earth-Shattering Kaboom: The planet was destroyed by Starkiller Base.
- Hufflepuff House: Downplayed. In The Force Awakens, it's notable in-universe for being the current capital of the New Republic and host to their fleet. However, rather like Alderaan in A New Hope, the planet itself only shows up once onscreen and in the very same scene it gets blown to smithereens.
- Mass "Oh, Crap!": The inhabitants of Republic City are all shown doing this as the laser of Starkiller Base closes in on them.
- Red Sky, Take Warning: Starkiller Base's incoming laser causes Hosnian Prime's sky to turn bright red.
Commissioner Exantor Divo
The head of law enforcement on Hosnian Prime. His mother, Andressa Divo, was an ISB agent, and his grandfather, Tan Divo, was an inspector in the Coruscant Security Force.
- Ambiguously Gay: It's said that he lives on Hosnian Prime with his partner and their kids. His partner's gender is not specified.
- Dead Guy Junior: He's named for his grandfather's middle name.
- History Repeats: It's implied that his grandfather died when Alderaan blew up, and it's looking a lot like he and his family are going to meet the same fate when the Hosnian system is blown up in due time.
- Jerkass Has a Point: He thinks that the New Republic's lax stance on fighting crime has led to the criminal underworld and other lawlessness growing stronger. He's not entirely wrong, given that the First Order will strike soon.
- Knight Templar: He's of the opinion that peace begets complacency, and that's why it was inevitable that the Republic would enter a war, that war being the Clone Wars. His reasoning is that as long as there's illegal activity anywhere in the Galaxy, it will soon grow into conflict.
- Old Shame: In-universe. His mother was an ISB agent, but at the beginning of his section in Scum and Villainy, he defends her, saying that she was just doing her job as an officer of the law, and says that the Empire was so corrupt that it helped crime instead of attacking it, as well as that the Empire was intended to just a part of Palpatine's agenda more than anything else.
- Uncertain Doom: He lives in Hosnian Prime's capital with his partner and two kids, and we all know what happens to the Hosnian system...
