The moon of NaJedha, the historical and spiritual significance of the moon led to it becoming a world of worship for those who believed in the Force, and a holy site for pilgrims who sought spiritual guidance, including the Jedi Order — in fact having been an ancient chair for the order in the past. During the reign of the Empire, the moon was extracted for its abundance in kyber crystals, which in turn attracted and provoked the rebel insurgency known as the Partisans led by Saw Gerrera of Onderon. Most of this action would be centralized in the capital city, Jedha City, also known as the Holy City.
- Apocalypse How: A Class 1 example. Despite the Death Star only shooting at minimum power, the superlaser targeting the Holy City of Jedha delivers a huge amount of energy, having penetrated the moon's crust and created a shockwave in its mantle, as the ground is shown peeling off the surface of the moon (which is what would happen if a planet was hit by a large enough impact, and presumably a giant death laser as well). While the moon is miraculously still somewhat habitable after the Battle of Yavin, the geological damage done is permanent and is very noticeable from space, not to mention the potential ecological damage caused by such a disaster.
- Holy City: Jedha is a religious pilgrimage site for those who pray for the Jedi to return. Naturally, it's occupied by the Empire.
- La Résistance: Many people on Jedha don't take it well that the Empire pillages the holy city's kyber crystals' reserves.
- Power Crystal: One of only four known sources of kyber crystals, along with Ilum, Christophsis and Lothal.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: After the Imperials are finished mining all of the kyber crystals from Jedha, they use the Death Star to destroy Jedha's largest city.
Disciples of the Whills
The oldest faith active on Jedha. They regularly congregate at the Kyber Temple. Their members include Angber Trel, Killi Gimm, and Silvanie Phest.
- Saintly Church: They run an orphanage near the Kyber Temple and frequently ask for alms.
Guardians of the Whills
A sect of warriors charged with protecting the Temple of the Whills on Jedha. Known members include Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: They are not naturally Force-sensitive like the Jedi, but through training some of them can gain superhuman fighting skills and perception.
- Energy Bow: Their traditional weapon is the lightbow, which is similar to the bowcaster.
- Heroic Neutral: The Guardians were expelled from the Temple when the Empire took over and looted it for kyber crystals, which is why Chirrut is seen working as a street fortune teller.
- Magical Asian: Chirrut especially fits this trope almost to a T for Jyn Erso, only he references the Force instead of Confucious.
- Staff of Authority: Some members carry a staff topped with a kyber crystal as a symbolic source of inner illumination.
- Warrior Monk: Members are both skilled warriors and highly spiritual.
Brotherhood of the Beatific Countenance

- The Cameo: Some of them can be seen as servants on Dryden Vos's yacht. Scum and Villainy confirms that Evazan was in Crimson Dawn's employ at the time and created the Decraniated for Vos. After Vos's death, Evazan went independent and sold the Decraniated to fund himself.
- Cybernetics Will Eat Your Soul: They have no free will and are essentially droids.
- Cyborg: They are organic beings with droid brains, effectively making them meat droids instead of conventional cyborgs.
- Mad Doctor: The Visual Guide states they were altered by a "fugitive surgeon". The surgeon in question is Roofoo, AKA Dr. Cornelius Evazan.
- Unexplained Recovery: Some of the ones on Jedha are among those that escaped Jedha City's destruction.
- Unwilling Roboticization: The Rogue One Ultimate Visual Guide states that they were likely sold into slavery.
- We Can Rebuild Him: Some of them are victims injured in battle.
- Wetware Body: The machine parts take over the organic host's functions.
A high-gravity humanoid blown apart by the insurgency and pieced back together by a mysterious man called Roofoo. After escaping the destruction of Jedha City, he swore revenge on the man who butchered him, and signed on as hired muscle with Son-tuul Pride to fund his search, entering into a romantic relationship with Tam Posla, an ex-cop-turned-bounty hunter also hunting Roofoo, in the process.
- Badass Gay: He's involved with Tam Posla.
- Heavyworlder: He is a "high gravity" humanoid.
- Leeroy Jenkins: An unwilling example. Thanks to a secret contingency programmed into his cyberware by Dr. Aphra, he ends up walking right into the firing line of the droid prototypes on Hivebase-1, getting blown to bits a second time.
- Losing Your Head: Unlike some of the other Decraniated (who are only missing the top halves of their heads), he's missing his entire head, with the droid CPU taking up his neck.

The world that Jedha orbits. After the Death Star rendered Jedha uninhabitable, the remaining members of the Partisans and survivors of the attack joined together and hid out on NaJedha.
- Ambiguous Situation: The main Star Wars comic reveals that its surface is covered in crystals. Like how our Moon was formed from the Earth and thus contains the same material as the Earth, it's possible that Jedha holds an abundance of crystals because this moon formed from NaJedha. Alternatively, this could be because both Jedha and NaJedha were formed from the same material.
