The Partisans
Appearances: The Clone Warsnote  | Rebel Rising | Guardians of the Whills | Rebels | Rogue One | Inferno Squad | Marvel's Star Wars

Formed out of the Onderon resistance movement led by siblings Saw and Steela Gerrera against the Separatist occupation of Onderon after the death of Senator Mina Bonteri and the dethronement of King Ramsis Dendup, the Partisans took up arms when the Empire occupied Onderon, eventually relocating offworld. Under Saw's leadership, the Partisans enacted a controversial rebel campaign, infamous for its brutality and hiring of mercenaries in the war against the Galactic Empire, which eventually led to the Rebel Alliance cutting formal relations with them.

  • Hired Guns: During the reign of the Empire, Saw has resorted to this.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Due to the supervision of Ahsoka (as well as Obi-Wan and Anakin) as well as Lux and Steela to balance out the leadership, the Partisans had to be careful with their public relations — as in, to assure the citizens that they mean well and to even convince them to rise against Rash's rule. When Saw starts up the rebellion again, due to the death of Steela and apparent absence of/lack of action from Ahsoka and Lux, it quickly becomes a matter of wanting the Empire gone, no matter the cost. All There in the Manual even says that the leadership of the Rebel Alliance is disgusted by their actions.
  • Renegade Splinter Faction: They can be seen as this from the main Rebel Alliance. Although they're both fighting to bring down the Empire, the Partisans tend to use far more ruthless and unscrupulous methods, which the Alliance does not approve of.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Revolution Will Not Be Civilized: They don't seem to have that many moral qualms during the Imperial era. In Rogue One, they imprison Imperial defector Bodhi Rook despite him coming to them freely with information and subject him to what is essentially torture out of distrust for him; Saw Gerrera also indicates they would've been willing to use Jyn Erso, then an innocent child, as a bargaining chip against the Empire.
  • Space Jews: They're extremists based on a desert world with a reputation for religious fervor, that is the source of an important mineral that the Empire wants to seize. Subtle.
  • Uncertain Doom: Their base on Jedha is obliterated by the Death Star, and the last we see of the Partisans is them fleeing to their ships. Of the known Partisans, only Benthic is confirmed to have survived of the group that was on Jedha, with the fate of the rest of his comrades uncertain.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Unlike with their predecessors, the Onderon rebels, who actively made sure to keep the public on their side with Saw even saying that they're not terrorists, they're patriots, he now doesn't really care that the Partisans are being called terrorists and that they have poor public relations. As long as the Empire is taken down, that's good enough for him.

"Save the Rebellion; save the dream!"

Species: Human

Homeworld: Onderon

Portrayed By: Forest Whitaker (Rogue One, Jedi: Fallen Order)
Voiced By: Andrew Kishino (The Clone Wars) | Forest Whitaker (Rebels)
Appearances: The Clone Wars | Catalyst | Solonote  | Rebel Rising | Jedi: Fallen Order | Guardians of the Whills | Rebels | Rebels Magazine | Rogue One

"I'm not a terrorist. I'm a patriot. And resistance is not terrorism."

During the Clone Wars, Saw served as the Onderon rebellion's original self-proclaimed leader until he was replaced by his sister Steela. After the Clone Wars, he would once again lead a resistance of Onderon rebels, this time fighting against the Empire. During the early years of this rebellion, Saw made contact with Galen and Lyra Erso and was entrusted to care for their daughter Jyn after the Empire kidnapped Galen and killed Lyra. Eventually, Saw moved his rebellion off of Onderon and began cooperating with other rebel groups, forming the Rebel Alliance, but was ostracized by other rebel leaders for his brutal tactics. Breaking with the Alliance, Saw began a campaign to free Jedha from Imperial rule while chasing rumors of a Imperial superweapon.


  • Advertised Extra: For Rogue One. Despite his critical role in the plot, he dies a third into the film once the Death Star is tested on Jedha.
  • Ascended Extra: He goes from a one-arc character in one arc of The Clone Wars to a key figure in the franchise, critical to the destruction of the first Death Star and the ultimate toppling of the Empire even after his death.
  • Anti-Hero: A man driven to extremism against the Empire due to everything they've taken from him.
  • Artificial Limbs: He has lost both his legs and had them replaced with a cybernetic ones shortly before Rogue One.
  • Badass Beard: An interesting combination of a soul patch and a goatee, which he appears to shave into two separate sections. As an older man, he grows it into a full beard.
  • Badass in Distress: Briefly, after his solo attempt to rescue the king fails. He's rescued along with the king when the resistance shows up.
  • Badass Normal: Not quite on the same level as the bounty hunters or the clone troopers, but he definitely deserves the title.
  • Bald of Awesome: In the flashback sequence of Rogue One and when he first appears in Rebels, Saw's head is shaved bald. When we meet him again later in Rogue One (years after the flashback, and only a couple of years after the mission to Geonosis), he's got a full head of hair.
  • Beard of Sorrow: By Rogue One, he has grown a messy and graying beard, representing how tired he has become of the war that seemed to have lasted through his entire life.
  • But Not Too Black: Inverted to the point of verging on Race Lift. In The Clone Wars Saw and Steela are Ambiguously Brown, and their family name is an obvious reference to Che Guevara, implying that they are the Hispanic. In Rogue One Saw is played by the very dark-skinned Forest Whitaker. That being said, Steela's skin pigment is darker than his, and given that they're siblings, it's not too hard to infer that they're both black.
  • The Cassandra: By the time of the investigation on Geonosis in Rebels, everyone assumes he's just gone off the deep end and dismiss his claims of the Empire building a superweapon. He was right, and by the time they figure it out, it's too late.
  • Cynicism Catalyst: Saw becomes a much darker and more violent rebel after Steela's death and the rise of the Empire.
  • Daddy Had a Good Reason for Abandoning You: Well, surrogate daddy. While Jyn saw it as cruel, Saw left her behind because he feared for her safety, thinking someone would uncover her identity and use her as a bargaining chip against the Empire.
  • Dark Lord on Life Support: While not a bad guy per se, by the time of Rogue One he has still become a delusional and paranoid rebel leader on Jedha. He also needs an oxygen mask to stay alive and can barely walk with his replacement legs, using a staff to support himself.
  • Despair Event Horizon: All but outright said to have happened when he died. After spending his entire rebel career trying to prevent the creation of the Death Star, and seeing that he was too late, it's understandable.
  • Determinator: Even after in Rebels, where he ends up inhaling a large and lethal amount of Geonosian insecticide, he gets a respirator and still leads the Partisans, though he's still clearly very tired of fighting.
  • Electric Torture: Subjected to it after getting captured while trying to free Onderon's true king.
  • Everyone Has Standards:
    • Though he was ousted from the Rebels for being too ruthless for them, Saw does have lines that he himself will not cross. This is why he abandons Jyn as there were ideas going around to use her as a hostage against Galen and the Empire; ultimately he could not bring himself to do that to the girl he helped raise.
    • Even with his negative view of Geonosian species, he was still horrified by the Empire's genocide of Geonosis.
  • Face Death with Dignity: Refuses to run away with the others when the Death Star blasts Jedha and walks out in front of the shockwave, taking off his life support before he is killed.
  • Famed In-Story: Post-The Clone Wars stories that bring him up tend to talk about his brutality as a rebel leader.
  • Fantastic Racism: He hates Geonosians for their alliance with the Separatist and for creating the gunship that killed his sister.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: To an extent; while they never become too friendly, Saw seems to develop a certain respect for Lux after seeing the young senator get his hands dirty.
  • Foil:
    • In Rogue One, he's this to Galen Erso; both fighting the Empire on different fringes, both having abandoned Jyn. But while Galen confesses he cannot bear to think of Jyn, Saw thought of her endlessly in the five years they were separated.
    • Also one to Darth Vader. While they are both on opposite sides, Saw's own anger and hatred towards the Empire and his frustration with the other Rebels are direct parallels to Anakin's own wrath towards the old Jedi Council and the Separatists. Both men are cyborgs and need respirators in order to function, but Saw hasn't fallen the way Darth Vader has.
  • Freudian Trio: With Steela and Lux; he's the Id.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: He's this to a lot of other Rebels who don't like his more extreme methods. In Rebels, Hera outright distrusts him and by the end of the "Ghosts of Geonosis" two-parter, Ezra has also soured on him as a person and a rebel ally, with pretty much everyone agreeing.
  • Go Mad from the Revelation: Implied. He figured out long before anyone else that the Empire was building a superweapon. The knowledge that the Empire was preparing for genocide, and the fact that no one would believe him until it was (almost) too late, contributed to his mental decline.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: He sports a scar on his left eyebrow.
  • Handicapped Badass: By the time of Rogue One, Saw has lost both legs and needs a cane to walk and a respirator to breathe, but he doesn't let that stop him from fighting the Empire by any means necessary.
  • He Who Fights Monsters: He has a pretty damn good reason to hate the Empire, but he sadly takes his hatred a little too far. His torture of an Imperial pilot has much in common with Vader torturing Leia.
  • Hot-Blooded: He's reckless and determined to fight. His ill-considered attempt to rescue King Dendup is a good instance of this.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: His The Clone Wars appearance resembles that of his original voice actor, Andrew Kishino.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: While "friendship" might be stretching it a bit, he gets along decently with Ezra, who also dislikes the politics of the Rebellion and wants to save his homeworld. Compared to his earlier and hostile confrontation with Mon Mothma, Saw actually respects Ezra's desire to fight the war differently, and Ezra is one of the few who takes Saw's claim of a super weapon seriously.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames himself for Steela's death, since the gunship he shot down is what caused her to fall (twice).
  • Jerkass Has a Point:
    • In the early years of the Galactic Civil War, he calls out Mon Mothma and the rest of the Rebel Alliance for not fully committing to the war effort, because if they don't, they are going to lose the war. While he may have poor moral standards and is guilty of too much violence, he has a point in that the Alliance cannot afford to lose the war, something that other rebels on the ground can relate to. While the Alliance High Council means well by debating tactics extensively and lying low, they have never been in the same position as those actually fighting in the battlefield to realize what is truly at stake.
    • Becomes a full on case of The Extremist Was Right with A New Hope. The Empire dissolved the Senate, destroyed a peaceful Core World for the actions of their leaders, and planned to make as many super weapons as necessary then use them to pacify the galaxy. Saw Gerrera was right about the Empire being impossible to defeat with a political solution and military force was the only option. In the end, the galaxy is only liberated by killing the Emperor as well as blowing up the Death Stars plus the fleets at Jakku.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He frequently berates Lux because of his background as a politician, but they start getting along and working together after repelling the droid attack on their camp. He also later comes to genuinely love Jyn as his adopted daughter and deeply missed her when they parted ways.
  • Knight Templar: His leadership of the Partisans veered into this some time between the Clone Wars and the genocide of Lasan. It reached the point where he was considered a Persona Non Grata by Rebel Alliance leadership in spite of being a helpful ally to them at one point.
  • La Résistance: Fights in the Onderon resistance, later becoming the leader of the Partisan movement.
  • Leader Wannabe: He fancies himself the leader of the resistance even though, as Steela points out, he arbitrarily decided that fact. The resistance is loose-knit enough that no one seems to really care and Anakin is quick to take command upon arrival. Steela is formally made the leader after that. It unfortunately doesn't last.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: He goes off by himself to rescue the king against the advice of the others, getting himself caught when he fails to think his escape through.
  • Meaningful Name: Gerrera is derived from 'guerra', meaning 'war', and is where the term 'guerrilla warfare' comes from. When pronounced by the British-accented characters, it even sounds like "Sole Guerrilla". His name is also a notable parallel to his inspiration, Che Guevara, who was also a guerrilla fighter who found his backers just as bad as the ones he was fighting.
  • My Sister Is Off-Limits!: Initially had this mentality concerning Steela and Lux's relationship.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
    • In an unfortunate coincidence, Steela just so happens to be in the vicinity of a crashing gunship he shot down. She survives the crash, but the gunship shoots Ahsoka (who was grabbing her from the ledge) before Steela can be brought to safety, and is killed. Leads to It's All My Fault.
    • During the era of the Empire, one of his hired guns ambushed a patrol of Stormtroopers and had no problem with him executing them even if they were wounded and helpless. A mook that the hired gun spared was a young Agent Kallus, who after being traumatized by the experience, became an adversary to another rebel cell significant to the conflict, as well as participating in the genocide of said hired gun's species.
    • This comes back around in a weird cosmic sort of way, when Kallus recollects this to another rebel, Zeb, Kallus ends up rethinking about where he'll put his motivation instead; rather than into a questionable cause that is apathetic to the well-being of civilians and its own people, he'll put it into one that is, looking past that he's experienced the worst of the Rebellion in favor of the much more morally grounded parts. Without Kallus as a Fulcrum informant, there's no telling if the Rebellion would've gotten Wedge and Hobbie (and by extension, Biggs), the Iron Squadron, or been able to stop the production of Imperial weapons like the TIE Defenders in time.
    • A Partisan bombing results in the assassination of Moff Panaka, one of the more benevolent and nicer Moffs, enough that the Alliance High Council was intending to recruit him to the Rebellion. Though to be fair, he couldn't have known about their plans (though he probably wouldn't have cared anyway), and nobody knew at the time that Panaka had just learned Leia's relation to Padme, which could've resulted in Panaka reporting this to Palpatine (meaning that Saw did them a favor) or Panaka's loyalty to the Empire being wavered in favor of the memory of his former queen (which still means Saw did bad).
  • No Historical Figures Were Harmed: The Star Wars equivalent of Che Guevara.
  • Nothing Left to Do but Die: Saw chooses to stay behind in his base as the shockwave from Jedha City's destruction consumes the landscape.
  • Not So Different: He seems to evoke a rebel Darth Vader: an utterly ruthless cyborg in dark armor dependent on a breathing apparatus for survival.
  • Older and Wiser: By Catalyst, he has become an expert guerrilla fighter, acting as one of the trainers for the fledgling rebellion on Salient fighting against Tarkin's forces. By Rogue One, Saw's Partisans are one of the most hardcore Rebel cells, using every dirty trick and pragmatic tactic against the Empire's occupying force on Jedha.
  • The Paranoiac: Years of war led him to become this, as evidenced by his treatment of Bodhi Rook (who he believes is an Imperial spy in spite of everything suggesting to the contrary) or his mistaken belief that the Rebel Alliance brought Jyn Erso to Jedha to kill him.
  • Parental Substitute: He raised Jyn Erso after her father was taken by the Empire and her mother was killed.
  • Promotion to Parent: He took in Jyn as an adopted daughter for much of her childhood.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Lux and Steela's blue.
  • Retraux Flashback: In the Rogue One comic adaptation, a panel showing him in his The Clone Wars incarnation has his face look more like a younger Forest Whitaker with Saw's The Clone Wars appearance.
  • Saved by Canon: Since he doesn't bite it till Rogue One, his role in Fallen Order and Rebels pretty much ensure he'll survive the events in those stories.
  • Sanity Slippage: By the time of Rogue One, half a lifetime of near-endless fighting have taken a serious toll on Saw, leaving him reclusive, paranoid, and increasingly extreme in his methods.
  • Scary Black Man: During the Galactic Civil War, he became well-known among both Rebels and Imperials for his brutality and extremism, and by the time of Rogue One, he's lost his marbles. He comes off as intimidating even after he's crippled and on life-support.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: Having fought through the Clone Wars and the Galactic Civil War, and experiencing War Is Hell full-on, his older self in Rogue One is explicitly described as "shell-shocked" and the nonstop fighting, betrayal, and loss has taken a heavy toll on him.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Although he's an Advertised Extra in Rogue One, half of the plot of the movie would have never happened if he hadn't captured Bodhi Rook or shown Jyn Erso the message from her father. And by extension, the Death Star's weakness would never have been discovered. He's not in the movie for very long, but needless to say, his role is important, because if he weren't there at all, things would have played out a lot differently.
  • So Proud of You: Said this to Steela when she didn't lose her focus and hope, despite the desperate situation they were in, and continued to organize the rebel base's defense.
  • Together in Death: After everyone leaves when he opts to stay behind during Jedha City's destruction, his last thoughts are of Steela and his last word is her name.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In opposing the Empire, Saw is a far more seasoned and capable soldier than he was during the fight to liberate Onderon. Unfortunately, this came hand-in-hand with a decline in his morals and sanity, leaving him a paranoid, extremist Shell-Shocked Veteran by the time of Rogue One.
  • Took a Level in Cynic: Years after the Clone Wars, he's apparently not above hiring mercenaries and has no problem with them being ruthless against Imperials, if one takes Agent Kallus's word. The Onderon rebels receive another mention in Bloodline, and it is definitely clear by the comments that they have gotten more brutal. By the time of the OT, they are known as the Partisans.
  • Vader Breath: By Rogue One, he has a very weak voice, presumably due to his life support system. Rebels shows him two years before without the life support system, and it's nearly impossible to tell it's the same person speaking.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He's repeatedly called an extremist in Rogue One both by Imperial personnel and the Rebel Alliance, to the point that the latter severed all ties to him and his cell when he began to cause significantly more trouble than he solved despite fighting for the same cause.
  • Would Hurt a Child: In one incident on Jedha, he was willing to use children as human shields, because as long as it's a blow to the Empire, anything will do. This was put to a stop by Chirrut and Baze.
  • Younger Than They Look: In Rogue One, despite being portrayed by 55-year old Forrest Whitaker, Saw should chronologically be between his late 30s to early 40s. However, the stress of a seemingly never-ending war may have taken a toll on his appearance.
  • Your Terrorists Are Our Freedom Fighters: Despite Tandin describing him as a terrorist, Saw insists that he is a patriot, fighting for a free Onderon. By the time of Bloodline, general galactic opinion seems to side with the former.

  • Character Death: Edrio's death in Jedha's destruction was confirmed by the Databank.
  • A Father to His Men: Benthic believes in the Partisans and upon seeing Cassian killing one of their members in self defense, instantly distrusts him and thinks to kill him. When the base is being evacuated, Benthic can be seen in the background making sure everyone gets out instead of running away for himself.

  • Revenge: Unlike the other mercenaries working for Saw, their work is less about the money and more about getting revenge on the Empire for devastating their homeworld.
  • Space Pirate: Before he and Edrio joined the Partisans, Benthic was part of the Cloud-Riders, a pirate gang that fought against the Empire and crime syndicates that collaborated with them in oppressing worlds.

    Beezer Fortuna 

Beezer Fortuna

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/beezer_fortuna_sw.jpg

Species: Twi'lek

Homeworld: Ryloth

Portrayed By: ??

A member of the Fortuna clan of the Twi'leks — in fact, cousin of Bib Fortuna, he was the most politically-minded member of his clan and came to resent his clan's ties with the criminal underworld. During the Clone Wars, he was inspired by Free Ryloth's rebel leader, Cham Syndulla, and his efforts to liberate Ryloth. First being a seditionist in Lessu during the liberation, he was captured by Imperial forces but was freed by Saw's Partisans, and subsequently joined them.


  • Face of a Thug: He's rather gaunt and creepy-looking for a Twi'lek, but genuinely wants to follow a heroic path.
  • The Strategist: Serves as one of the Partisans' chief strategists, mapping out Imperial activity at both a local level on Jedha and on a galactic scale in order to plot operations against the Empire.
  • White Sheep: He despises his criminal family, and wants to do good for the people like how Cham does. That being said, though, White Sheep does not automatically mean whoever applies for that trope has a completely chained morality, and Fortuna is one of the Partisans' most high-ranking members for a reason.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He's willing to go along with Saw's plan to use children as a part of their human shield in one incident on Jedha.

    Moroff

A Gigoran mercenary who offered his services to those in combat, wanting to take advantage of the demand and want for heavy gunners such as himself.


  • Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti: Gigorans like Moroff resemble sapient, extraterrestrial yetis.
  • BFG: Utilizes a Vulk TAU-6-23 "Blastmill" rotary blaster cannon, which requires a massive pack to power and requires both of Moroff's rather large hands to carry.
  • Canon Immigrant: His species, the Gigorans, originated in the old West End Games RPG.
  • Humanoid Alien: He's a Gigoran.
  • Only in It for the Money: He couldn't care less about the Imperial-Rebel conflict. He just wants whatever money he can get out of it, and in this case, Saw is willing to pay more than the Empire will for his services.

  • Ascended Extra: He receives a major role in a scene in Guardians of the Whills, being brought along with Beezer Fortuna to meet with Chirrut to pray.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He's running from his past and isn't quite a social butterfly.
  • Red Herring: Looks may be deceiving, but no, he isn't the Lasat mercenary that executed Kallus' team. The lack of ears might've tipped that off.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He's willing to go along with Saw's plan to use children as a part of their human shield in one incident on Jedha.

  • All There in the Manual: His name is given in the book Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide.
  • Cyborg: He had a cyber-optic wire connected into his brain which increased his visual senses and allowed him to analyse kyber crystal deposits, examine microcircuitry and throw his vibrorang weapon with unerring accuracy.
  • Humanoid Alien: Keredians like Ock have the basic humanoid body shape, but have big heads, short necks, long arms and a portly stomach.

  • Action Girl: Very skilled in combat, as befits a member of Alliance SpecForce.
  • Doomed Hometown: Jedha, and she returns to what remains of it as soon as she can to stop the Empire from desecrating what little remains with their kyber crystal mining operations.
  • Plot-Induced Illness: Had she not been ill and kept in Yavin Base's medical bay, Des would have joined the mission to Scarif and perished there.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: She left the Rebellion after the Battle of Yavin to join the Partisans on what remained of Jedha.

The Dreamers

Leadership

    Staven 

Staven

Species: Human

A friend of Jyn's. At some point after the Partisans abandoned her, Staven was captured by the Empire and believed to be dead, but escaped and returned to the group after the destruction of Jedha. Without the leadership of Saw, the remaining loyal Partisans reformed into the Dreamers, with Staven as their leader.


  • Dye Hard: According to Inferno Squad, his hair is dyed blue.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He's mentioned in the Rogue One novelization, where during the scene in Saw's base, Jyn asks the other Partisans if he's still alive, only to be told he was killed sometime after they left Jyn. He would later be expanded on in Rebel Rising.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: While the Partisans were never the most moral of rebel cells, Staven has little concern for civilian casualties. After the death of Nadrine, he begins actively targeting Imperial citizens, plotting to kill four-hundred Imperial schoolchildren alongside a Moff and general during a tour of an Imperial factory in order to send a message.
  • One Name Only: According to the Empire, his name is just Staven, though it might be a name he took on to replace his old name.
