Character page for Inferno Squad.
Will contain heavy spoilers for the single-player campaign of Battlefront II (2017). Browse through at your own caution.
Gideon Hask: That's the point, Sergeant.
An elite naval special forces squadron led by Commander Iden Versio, commanding the Imperial Raider known as the Corvus. Originally commissioned after the Death Star crisis to hunt down the remains of the late Saw Gerrera's Partisans, they continued their operations to the Battle of Endor, witnessing the destruction of the Death Star II.
- Badass Crew: Pretty obvious, don't you think?
- Big Damn Heroes: Heroes may or may not be pushing it, but at the beginning of the single-player campaign in Battlefront II, they get deployed to the Battle of Endor and save a squad of fellow Stormtroopers from rebels in the nick of time.
- Elite Army: There are only three (formerly four) of them, yet they're far more effective than regular Stormtroopers.
- Elites Are More Glamorous: Inferno Squad is one of the Empire's special forces units.
- Evil Counterpart: To Twilight Company. Both are elite special forces units that serve as an ace in the hole for their respective factions, both have an Expanded Universe novel dedicated them that ties into the Star Wars: Battlefront series of games, and both have similar Theme Naming. However, compared to Twilight Company, Inferno Squad is much smaller, being comprised of only four original members, and originally served as more of a clandestine black ops squad than frontline special forces.
- Four Is Death: Not counting Admiral Versio, there were four founding members.
- HeelFace Turn: Both Iden and Del pull one after Operation: Cinder.
- Hero Killer: Well, how heroic the Partisans were is YMMV, but they were a part of the Rebel Alliance, and since Inferno Squadron hunted them down...
- Interservice Rivalry: Averted. The Imperial Navy and TIE pilots often don't like each other, since the pilots tend to be stuck-up. However, after the Death Star plans were stolen, the Imperial Navy gave in and commissioned the formation of the Inferno Squadron, which as you can see, utilizes a combination of TIE pilot, Imperial officer, and special force troopers in one.
- Has hints of this being played straight in their interaction with a squad of regular Stormtroopers on Endor after their Big Damn Heroes moment.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Their armor is sleek and black, just like regular TIE pilots, but they have red decals as well. And of course, they're "evil" since they're Imperials.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Their helmets' eyepieces are red rather than the typical black.
- Robot Buddy: At least Iden is seen with a seeker probe droid, which is the same model used by the Seventh Sister of the Imperial Inquisition.
- Terrible Trio: By the Battle of Endor, it's just Iden, Hask, and Meeko.
- Two Girls to a Team: In Inferno Squad, Iden and Seyn, though there's also only two guys as well. Since Seyn is killed during the events of Inferno Squad, it becomes Two Guys and a Girl in Battlefront II.
- Would Hurt a Child: All members of Inferno Squad agree to Staven's plan to bomb several hundred Imperial students while undercover in the Dreamers. Only due to Seyn's last minute decision that it would go too far, even for them, are the students saved.
Commander Iden Versio
Callsigns: Sigma Three, Danger Five
The commanding officer of Inferno Squad and the Corvus, Iden graduated top of her class at Coruscant Imperial University with honors, she served Sigma Squadron as a TIE pilot and became the holder for the record of most verified kills in battle. After a near-wipeout of her squadron at the Battle of Yavin, Iden Versio became the commanding officer of Inferno Squad. She is the protagonist of Inferno Squad and Battlefront II.
- The Ace: She graduated at the top of her class with honors.
- Ace Custom: Her TIE fighter bears the three red stripes found on her uniform, and also displays the Inferno Squad insignia when she boots it up.
- Ace Pilot: She was a TIE fighter pilot before being selected to command Inferno Squad, and flew in the Battle of Yavin.
- Action Girl: She is the protagonist of the single-player campaign and the leader of Inferno Squad, an elite group of Imperial soldiers who were originally commissioned to hunt down the rogue rebel group, the Partisans, earlier on in the war. Could be Dark Action Girl depending on how you view playing as an Imperial soldier.
- Been There, Shaped History: She personally fought in the dogfight at the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin and was one of the few Imperials there that lived to tell the story. She also ends up helping the effort against Operation: Cinder at Naboo, as well as participating in the Battle of Jakku.
- Benevolent Boss: In comparison to the normal way Darth Vader and other Imperials normally treat subordinates, Iden is incredibly good to her subordinates. She openly praises their good work and treats them well. Ends up being something of a Fatal Flaw since her inability to put aside her Team Mom attitude prevents her from dealing with Gideon when he believes she's betraying the Empire's beliefs for attempting to help the people of Vardos.
- The Captain: In addition to commanding Inferno Squad, she's also the commanding officer of the Corvus.
- Defector from Decadence: She ends up becoming this along with Del after going AWOL from the Empire, turning herself and her remaining followers on the Corvus in to the Rebel Alliance before working with them against the Empire.
- Dirty Business: While undercover in the Dreamers, she and the rest of Inferno Squad were forced to kill Imperials and Imperial allies, something that deeply troubles her. It proves to be too much for Seyn, who blows her cover when the Dreamers target Imperial students.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: As cold as she can be, Iden really does love her father and her home of Vardos.Her love for her home ends up being what has her defect from the Empire, as they decide to test out Operation: Cinder on the planet, without evacuating the people living on the planet.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Again, how "evil" she is is up for debate, but despite being a ruthless Imperial soldier there's a number of things that she views as going too far, such as Hask and Del killing the defenseless Dreamers when it wasn't necessary to complete the mission.
- In general, Iden is loyal to the Empire - its people, its soldiers, and what it supposedly stands for - moreso than the actual people in charge. She is one of the few Imperials to make it to a powerful position while retaining their ability to care about others (at least, as long as they're also Imperials), and she assumes that the Empire itself also cares in that way. In the game, the Empire laying siege upon her homeworld despite it being loyal to the Empire makes her realize that it's actually willing to destroy everything just for obedience, and leads to her defection to the Rebellion.
- Evil Counterpart: Iden could be considered this to Leia Organa prior to Iden's HeelFace Turn. Both are strong-willed women who sought to be like their fathers and live up to their expectations. Both are very passionate about their chosen causes, and filled with contempt for everything the other side stands for, with Iden being wholly committed to destroying the Rebellion in service to the Empire and Leia is just as wholly committed to helping the Rebellion bring down the Empire; this stems with Iden growing up on a mostly peaceful planet that prospered under the Empire's rule, while Leia grew up on a peaceful planet that was destroyed by the Empire, which prior to that had prospered. Also, Iden was raised to be a soldier, Leia a senator and diplomat, but ultimately both women came out very combat-capable and both are excellent shots with a blaster. Finally, Iden dresses in predominantly black while Leia dresses in predominantly white do distinguish the sides that they are fighting for.
- Foil: To Ciena Ree. Both Ciena and Iden are Wide-Eyed Idealists, strongly committed to the virtuous ideals upheld by their homeworlds (loyalty and order, respectively). Both women are confronted at certain points by the Empire's true nature. But while Ciena feels bound by her oaths to the Empire to the point where (though she won't desert outright) she wishes that something would end her service to the same, Iden defects to the New Republic very soon after she witnesses the Empire go off the deep end by carrying out Operation Cinder on her fiercely loyal homeworld of Vardos.
- Freudian Excuse: She wholeheartedly believes in the Empire because on her homeworld, the most upheld ideals are peace, stability, organization, and structure; a utopian vision of Imperial rule. To the people of Vardos, the Empire is the best thing since sliced bread, and the Rebels are terrorists that just want to cause trouble.
- HeelFace Turn: She and Meeko end up going rogue from the Empire and later defecting to the Rebellion after the two conflict with Hask about saving civilians on Vardos.
- Hero Killer: Obviously, she's killed rebels. She's also killed some X-Wing and Y-Wing fighters at the Battle of Yavin, likely named characters.
- Hope Crusher: She seems to find the idea of the rebels believing in hope as silly.
- Hypocrite: During the destruction of both Death Stars, she considers them both to be immoral acts of terrorism by the Rebel Alliance, while considering the destruction of a peaceful world like Alderaan as a perfectly justified manner of waging war. Part of her character development is understanding just how truly bad the Empire really was.
- It's All My Fault: In the "Resurrection" storyline, she blames herself for not joining the Resistance, thinking that if she did, Del wouldn't have been murdered by Hask. Zay and Shriv quickly reassure her that she's not to blame, though.
- Jumped at the Call: According to Word of God, she's been training her whole life to serve as a high-ranking Imperial soldier.
- King Mook: In multiplayer, she lacks the more flashy special abilities or weapons of many of the other Hero units, and essentially plays like a regular trooper with more health, a relatively weak personal shield, and a special homing shock droid. Fitting as she basically is a King Mook stormtrooper.
- Meaningful Name: The name Aiden means "little fire"/"fiery", and is also the name of a Celtic sun god. She's the leader of Inferno Squad, and it also befits her willful, courageous, and militaristic personality.
- Military Brat: She has a military upbringing thanks to her father, but other characters comment that doing things while being a Naïve Newcomer make her look spoiled.
- Mortal Wound Reveal: After the final showdown against Hask, Iden and her daughter Zay plant the last detonator and destroy the Star Destroyer's reactor drive. However, Iden slumps and reveals that she took a blaster wound in the earlier firefight, and dies after comforting Zay.
- Mutual Kill: She and Hask shoot each other over the Retribution's reactor core. While Hask dies instantly and falls down the reactor, Iden is fatally wounded, and only lives long enough to see Starkiller Base and give Zay some parting words.
- My Nayme Is: Her name is pronounced like one of the pronounciations of Aiden, but spelled without the "A".
- Naïve Newcomer: At the beginning of Inferno Squad, though a senior lieutenant, she had a habit of speaking out despite it being unwarranted by her superiors. Continues to happen in Battlefront II whenever she brings up a good point, and she's barked down to.
- Never Mess with Granny: A thirty year timeskip happens between the main story and the "Resurrection" campaign, with Iden in her late fifties and with her daughter Zay being a young adult. Still doesn't diminish her combat prowess in the slightest; in fact, one mission even allows her to carry a Light Sentry in spite of her age.
- One Degree of Separation: Due to Been There, Shaped History, she almost killed Evaan during the Battle of Yavin, she meets Lux while infiltrating the Dreamers, and knows Lando, Leia, Han, and Chewbacca on a personal basis after the Battle of Endor. She was also very close to meeting Queen Soruna and Shara Bey, though they never talk to each other, at least onscreen.
- One-Woman Army: She's introduced in the campaign singlehandedly blasting her way out of a Rebel cruiser (after being intentionally captured, naturally), and her deeds grow only more impressive from there.
- OOC Is Serious Business: Iden has essentially been groomed since birth to be The Stoic and exercises extreme discipline at all times, but when she see's the second Death Star destroyed on Endor and hears of Palpatine's death, she's visibly stunned and shocked, albeit only briefly.
- She yells at Hask to stand down during their conflict of morals on Vardos.
- Player Character: Of the single-player campaign in Battlefront II.
- Prim and Proper Bun: She's wears her hair in a truly magnificently coiffed austere bun, befitting her status as a steely, military-minded Action Girl.
- Rank Up: She enters the Battle of Yavin as a senior lieutenant, is promoted to captain upon the founding of Inferno Squad with her as the commanding officer, and is eventually promoted to commander by the Battle of Endor.
- Retired Badass: After the Battle of Jakku, she and Del leave the New Republic to raise a family.
- Right for the Wrong Reasons: She questions why naval forces were sent out to apprehend a measly number of rebel starfighters attacking the Death Star when the rebel base will be destroyed by the superweapon in a few minutes, which is basically answered with a "Shut up!" from her commander. What she doesn't know is that her superiors and the rebels have discovered a weakness in the Death Star (so them not telling Iden and the others is damage control), but even then, only three rebel starfighter pilots survived the trench run and it took a combination of the Millennium Falcon dropping in to save the day & Luke's Force-sensitivity to finally hit that weak spot last second. In regular circumstances, Iden's argument would be valid.
- The Stoic: Growing up in a strict Imperial household with a domineering admiral for a father, it's not surprising she turned out to be this, except when she's not.
- Team Mom: To the rest of the squad, as well as to the crew of the Corvus.
- Villain Protagonist: Of Inferno Squad and the single-player campaign of Battlefront II, where she is the main character despite serving the genocidal Empire. Though if anything, she's more like a hero on the side of the bad guys. This changes in the aftermath of the attack on Vardos.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Iden's mom left and died, and as Garrick is so committed to work that he was emotionally distant to things in general unless they do something worthy of his attention.
- Wide-Eyed Idealist: Despite being sort of evil ("Hope cannot save [the Rebellion]!"), she otherwise sees the Empire as the heroes. To her, the Empire brings stability and peace despite there being times she disagrees with the Empire's actions. There's even a noticeable glimmer in her eyes.
- You Are in Command Now: She is so good at her job and loyal enough that she is one of the people that Palpatine entrusts in part of his contingency plan, Operation: Cinder (well, he assigned Admiral Versio, but by extension, that includes Iden.).
- You Remind Me of X: While undercover as a Dreamer, the Mentor comments that she reminds him of Steela.
- Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Due to her upbringing, she's convinced that the Empire is a force of good and the Rebellion is nothing but a group of bullheaded anarchists that can't see the peace that has been brought by the Empire.
Agent / Commander Gideon Hask
- "The Empire is peace, and justice, and order."
The first in his class at Coruscant Imperial University, Gideon served with valor aboard the Mandate, where he would receive a field promotion and the Crimson Star for outstanding performance against the enemy. He grew close to his fellow CIU graduate and colleague, Iden Versio, as well as her father, Admiral Garrick Versio. Having personally seen the young man's skills in the battlefield, Admiral Versio placed him in Inferno Squad as the team's weapons expert.
- The Ace: He graduated as the first of his class at the Coruscant Imperial University.
- Badass Boast: His response to a Stormtrooper Sergeant who said they weren't expecting Special Forces? "That's the point, Sergeant."
- Berserk Button: Questioning the Empire's intent seems to be a huge one for him. When Iden and Del expressed shock and anger of Operation: Cinder being used on Vardos, Gideon merely praises the Empire's plan while sutbly taking jabs at Iden and Del's Conflicting Loyalty. He even disobeys Iden's orders to help evacuate people from Vardos since in his mind, the Empire's orders trump her own.
- Big Bad: He's the main adversary Iden, Shriv and Zay have to deal with in the Resurrection DLC.
- Dark and Troubled Past: He is the last surviving member of his high-ranking Imperial officer family, his parents having been killed by a rebel bomb at the age of 10.
- Disney Villain Death: In his final confrontation with Iden, he tries to take Zay hostage, only for the latter to break free and give Iden an opportunity to shoot him dead. His body then falls down the Star Destroyer's reactor.
- Et Tu, Brute?: Justified. Iden and Del leave the Empire because they dont want to hurt innocent lives for no reason despite that being against orders, but Hask disagrees and refuses to join them. Decades later, while confronting Del for the first time in some thirty years, Hask angrily asks him how he could leave him, clearly bitter about how his own life wasnt satisfactory.
- Evil Former Friend: To Iden and Del, who have Heel Face Turns.
- Evil Brit: He has a Core Worlds accent, since Kuat is a Core World.
- Final Boss: A dogfight against him marks the end of the main campaign, and the Resurrection DLC ends with a Cutscene Boss confrontation against him 30 years later.
- To Admiral Versio. Having been raised in military families, they both dedicated their lives to the Empire to the point that they are specialized in their own fields—Hask being a special forces operative, while the Admiral is a high-ranking State Sec officer. They both lose or lost their families at some point—Hask's Dark and Troubled Past is that they were killed by rebels, while the Admiral is bitterly divorced and loses his daughter's allegiance. After reuniting with a defected member of Inferno Squad, the Admiral acknowledges as the Empire is dying that he wasted his life and urges his daughter to have a happy life, while Hask—having joined the transition to the First Order—is still bitter and blames his former brother-in-arms for leaving him for a happy life.
- To Agent Kallus. Both are Imperial agents specialized in neutralizing rebels and originate from the Core Worlds, with both being fiercely dedicated to their jobs because they hold grudges against rebels because of their Dark and Troubled Pasts involving the brutal deaths of their family and/or friends. However, when faced with a Moral Event Horizon/Armor-Piercing Question on how far their loyalty goes, Kallus defects after realizing none of his colleagues actually want to help people while Hask deludes himself into believing the Empire is still good in spite of hurting people.
- Freudian Excuse: His family was made up of Imperials and they were killed by rebels. The Empire is all he's ever known and has left.
- Ink-Suit Actor: Gideon's facial features bear a striking resemblance to Paul Blackthorne, only blonder. By the time he's a First Order officer, though, he gets the Perma-Stubble that Paul Blackthorne's Quentin Lance is somewhat famous for.
- Kick the Son of a Bitch: Kills Gleb, someone who indoctrinated children into joining the Empire.
- Knight Templar: Believes Operation: Cinder is for all the greater good and during the Resurrection DLC, when Iden accurately describes Project: Resurrection as kidnapping children, Hask corrects her and states that they are in fact rescuing them.
- Like a Son to Me: Iden and her father know him quite well and are fond of him, with the admiral acknowledging Hask like he does to Iden at a couple of points. Hask also happens to be an orphan.
- Like Brother and Sister: To Iden. Back in their academic years, they used to have a friendly rivalry, not unlike how siblings would. By the time of Battlefront II, however, their relationship begins to sour as Iden and Del experience Conflicting Loyalty.
- Love Is a Weakness: When Iden refuses to shoot him when he holds Zay hostage, he says that motherhood has made her weak.
- Meaningful Name:
- The name Gideon means "warrior"/"cutter".
- Something being hask means that it is rough and harsh to your senses, referencing his Knight Templar personality.
- When used to describe weather, it means that the weather is cold and dry. His relationship with Iden and Del deteriorates when they leave during Operation: Cinder.
- In The Bible, Gideon was the leader of a small military force that managed to achieve victory despite being outnumbered.
- Moral Myopia: Hask claims that Iden and Del took everything from him when they betrayed him, despite the fact that they only did so because they were disgusted with the Empire intentionally killing its own people. Plus, they only turned on the Empire not Hask himself and it was Hask's own choice to stay with the Empire and kill his own comrades.
- Mutual Kill: Though he'll never know it, he inflicted a fatal blaster wound on Iden while the latter shoots him dead.
- Never Found the Body: He was believed to have been killed at the Battle of Jakku, but it turns out he escaped with the Imperial Remnant to the Unknown Regions, joining what would eventually become the First Order.
- One Degree of Separation: He's met Lux, and it later turns out that he's working alongside prominent First Order officers, including Kylo Ren.
- Rank Up: He gets field-promoted to Commander by Admiral Versio after Iden and Del go rogue.
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Delivers such a speech to Del at the end of the main campaign.Del: You spare me the pleasantries, Hask. We both know how this ends.
Hask: Yeah and you don't get to be brave! Because you are not a soldier anymore. Look at you, you're a coward. You traded your weapon in for what? Fatherhood!? Hauling cargo on the Corvus? You know Iden may have betrayed me, but you, Del, you let me down! You...!
- Psycho Supporter: Hask is extremely fanatical in his loyalties to the Empire.
- Sole Survivor: Of his family.
- This Cannot Be!: As he watches the Death Star II blow up, he reacts in this fashion.Hask: (gasping) That's impossible!
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill: A more tame example than most, but thirty years after the Battle of Jakku, he finds Del and kills him, blasting several times for no reason than to make sure he dies.
- Token Evil Teammate: While Inferno Squad are not exactly good guys to begin with, Gideon is the most straightforwardly evil and loyal to the Empire. So much so that he disobeys Iden's orders and has her & Del labeled as traitors.
- Undying Loyalty: His loyalty to the Empire is absolute, and he does not even once question his actions since they are in service to the Empire. He eventually takes part in the destruction of world despite it having churned out Imperial loyalists like himself simply because the Emperor ordered it. Even thirty years later, he is so loyal to the Empire that he joins the First Order.
- We Used to Be Friends: With Iden and Del, after both of them defect to the Rebellion.
Agent Del Meeko
Callsigns: Danger Six
Having fought on the ground and in the sky, Meeko received commendations from his commanders for his courage in battle. He's also exceptionally skilled at repairing various items such as droids, armor, engines, and so forth. Admiral Versio took note of this as a reason to induct him into Inferno Squad.
- The Big Guy: He's described as being the warrior of the bunch.
- Conflicting Loyalty: Unlike his teammates, Del knows how just truly bad the Empire can be to people but despite that, the Empire took him in and gave him a place to belong. His conflicting feelings are made worse when he runs into Luke Skywalker when trapped on a mission, as Luke plants the idea of him leaving, while also showing that the Jedi weren't what he thought they were.Del: I'm not blind. I know what the Empire's capable of. But what else is there?
- Defiant to the End: When interrogated by Kylo Ren, Del manages to put up an impressive front. Even after supposedly submitting to Kylo Ren's power, Del instead feeds him false intel, managing to buy the Resistance more time.
- Face Death with Dignity: As Hask prepares to execute him, he simply closes his eyes and accepts his fate.
- First Name Ultimatum: While begging Hask to reconsider his loyalties during their bitter reunion thirty years after the Battle of Jakku, Del calls Hask by his given name, Gideon, in an attempt to evoke camaraderie, but to no avail as Hask ends up executing him.
- From Nobody to Nightmare: He started out as a Stormtrooper, then a Shoretrooper, a TIE pilot, and now a soldier in an elite squadron. Unlike Iden, Hask, or even Seyn, he's never mentioned as ever having been a top student in the Imperial Academy.note
- Genius Bruiser: He may be the warrior of the bunch, but his specialty in the team is technology.
- The Heart: He lightens up the serious atmosphere of the team. He's also the first to react when he sees civilians being hurt in Operation: Cinder, which prompts Iden—who was told to turn a blind eye after she confronted her father about the mission—to follow.
- HeelFace Turn: Along with Iden, he ends up defecting to the Rebellion after the two go rogue on Vardos.
- Nice Guy: Even before his defection to the Rebellion, Del is a friendly and amiable guy.
- Official Couple: With Iden at the ending. It's also said that he and Iden settled down and had a daughter; Zay, whom we get to meet in the "Resurrection" story campaign.
- One Degree of Separation: He meets Lux while infiltrating the Dreamers, and has an Enemy Mine (and later, is heavily implied to become friends) with Luke as well as knowing Lando, Leia, Han, and Chewbacca on a personal basis after the Battle of Endor. He was also very close to meeting Queen Soruna and Shara Bey, though they never talk to each other, at least onscreen.
- Retired Badass: After the Battle of Jakku, he and Iden leave the New Republic to raise a family.
- Shout-Out: His name may be a reference to an Ithorian bounty hunter named Del Moomo from the Old Republic era in Legends continuity. Since the characters have nothing in common beyond a first name, it's most likely a coincidence.
- Spotting the Thread: The first true seeds of doubt and rebellion in him are sparked when he discovered that the Emperor's vault he was sent to destroy could only be opened by the force, with Luke giving him the idea that the Emperor was not the man he seemed to be and not a Jedi either.
- Token Good Teammate: He's not as harsh in comparison to Iden or Del.
- Undying Loyalty: While his loyalty to the Empire is conflicted, he is completely loyal to Iden. When Gideon and Iden clash about Operation: Cinder on Vardos, Del boldly states he will follow his captain's orders, and defects alongside Iden.
Agent Seyn Marana
Seyn's photographic memory has allowed her to graduate the Imperial Academy on Uyter a year early with honors and the memorization of large pieces of information such as numerous languages. She's also a master of cryptology and a good shot, making her a valued member of Inferno Squad.
- Action Girl: Downplayed, since Seyn has the least combat experience out of all of the members of Inferno Squad due to her history as a NavInt officer, but nevertheless she's capable of taking care of herself. She is still in Inferno Squad after all.
- The Ace: She graduated the Imperial Academy with honors and a year early, is a master cryptologist, a polyglot, and can shoot adversaries from about five kilometers away.
- Boyish Short Hair: It looks a bit similar to Sabine's haircut.
- Dirty Business: As with the rest of Inferno Squad she's forced to kill Imperials and Imperial allies while undercover in the Dreamers. She draws the line at killing young Imperial students however.
- Forgotten Fallen Friend: Despite Inferno Squad being a prequel to Battlefront II, Seyn is never brought up. In fairness, it's been years since she died, she's barely relevant to what's going on in Battlefront II, and it's possible that the others weren't that close to her anyway.
- Friendless Background: She's a Teen Genius, but apparently had little friends in the Academy.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: She can fire at a foe from five kilometers (which is five-thousand meters or about three miles) away.note
- New Meat: Iden notes this about her and is almost tempted to invoke The Baby of the Bunch on her, but shakes the thought of it off as Seyn is an adult that can take care of herself.
- Omniglot: She can speak twenty-nine languages and is literate in seven more. Ends up being her downfall when she makes an outburst in an uncommon language her cover identity wasn't supposed to understand.
- Photographic Memory: The key to her success. As she points out to Iden, this is part of what makes the munitions factory bombing so traumatic for her, since she will always remember the event in explicit detail.
- Shadow Archetype: To Sabine Wren. Both are young prodigies that happen to be around the same age, and the Empire took advantage of this to use them as living weapons. While there's no indication Seyn has ever helped build weapons of mass destruction like Sabine, Seyn's photographic memory might mean she's even smarter than Sabine (for starters, Sabine only knows how to speak seven languages, whereas Seyn knows twenty-nine to thirty-six). And while Seyn may have good intentions, she's an Imperial while Sabine deserted and became a rebel.
- The Smart Girl: The team's cryptologist/decipherer, translator, and possibly more.
- Teen Genius: She's barely into her twenties by the beginning of Inferno Squad.
- Wouldn't Hurt a Child: She sabotages the Dreamer operation to kill several hundred Imperial students at the last minute against the wishes of both Staven and Inferno Squad.
- You Remind Me of X: Though he doesn't explicitly drop her name, it's clear that Staven sees Jyn in Seyn.
Model: ID10 seeker droid
The team's probe droid, which can be deployed to traverse enemy territory for infiltration purposes.
- A Dog Named "Dog": Justified, as individuality makes it harder for the Empire to expend things. Though even after joining the Rebellion, everyone still calls it "the Droid", though it seems to have evolved into an affectionate nickname of sorts—it's the droid, rather than just a droid. After the 30-year Time Skip, the team has taken to calling it "Dio".
- Do-Anything Robot: In addition to its recon and infiltration abilities, the droid can also substitute for an astromech, as demonstrated whenever Iden flies an X-Wing. The droid takes up the slot behind the cockpit just like an R2 unit would.
- Good Costume Switch: After Iden and Del join the rebels, it gets a white and gold paintjob.
- Licked by the Dog: After joining the Rebellion, it plays with Shriv, much to his annoyance.
- Not So Above It All: It can be seen playing with Shriv after its HeelFace Turn.
- One Steve Limit: Averted; "Dio" shares the same name as the D-O droid that plays a prominent role in The Rise of Skywalker.
- Robot Buddy: To Inferno Squad, though their relationship is mostly unattached and Iden avoids trying to be too personal with it.
- Shock and Awe: It can stun or electrocute opponents.
- Shout-Out: The activation code that Iden gives to it via her helmet is "VZ-626".
- Undying Loyalty: Despite Iden and Del switching sides, it stays with them despite being intended to be an Imperial droid.
