Spacers

Some beings in the galaxy do not live on planets, moons, or space stations. Instead, they make their home among the stars and are constantly on the move throughout the galaxy.

Explorers

    The Graf Family 

Auric, Rhyssa, Lina, and Milo Graf

Species: Human

Appearances: Adventures in Wild Space | Adventures (Lina only)

Two cartographers, Auric and Rhyssa, who were mapping out Wild Space before being taken capitive by the Empire, leaving behind their two children and their droid, Lina, Milo, and CR-8R, who would set off to go find them.


  • Ace Pilot: Lina is described as having become this while serving the Rebel Alliance.
  • Ambiguous Situation: It is currently unknown what became of Auric and Rhyssa after the ending of Adventures In Wild Space. Lina's ship under the Rebel Alliance is named after Auric, which is usual indicator of Due to the Dead.
  • Ambiguously Brown: They appear to bear Asian features.
  • Badass in Charge: Lina became a Commander under the Rebel Alliance, and she's seen as a capable leader and Ace Pilot.
  • Famed In-Story: Lina, Milo, and Crater joined the Rebel Alliance, with Lina not only becoming a rebel commander, but also the head curator of the Graf Archive.
  • Meaningful Name:
    • The family profession of the Graf family is cartography.
  • May apply to Auric. Orography is the topological study of mountains. On the other hand, aurigraphy is the art of writing with/in gold.
  • Lina's first name is used to make her full name resemble "line graph."
  • May apply to Milo. A melograph is a device used for analyzing and plotting the frequency characteristics of ethnic music, producing a graph that can be preserved and filed, like a recording of music. Alternatively, his name is referring to the measurement, a mile.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: According to Tales from Wild Space, Lina and Milo joined the rebels and used the Star Herald to help.
  • Uncertain Doom: At the end of "The Rescue", the Graf family returns to Lothal to help the Bridgers in their transmissions. Considering Vizago has already stated not too long ago that the Empire will step in soon if Azadi can't find whoever's behind those transmissions and their associates... Though judging by the Graf Archive existing at some point after the Galactic Civil War, at least one of them is fine. While it turns out the kids joined the Rebel Alliance and survived to old age in Adventures, there's no word on what happened to the parents themselves. If it's any indication, Lina named her ship, the Auric, after her father...
  • Unexplained Recovery: It turns out Lina and Milo are fine, as mentioned in Tales from Wild Space from the Adventures comics, having lived long enough for Lina to see her grand-nephew to adulthood. It's still unknown what happened in between besides that the two piloted the Star Herald during the Galactic Civil War.

    CR-8R 

CR-8R, "Crater"

Model: Monster droid (contains parts of: architect droid Mark IV [head], Viper probe droid [legs], astromech droid [body])

The Grafs' family droid, made from makeshift parts.


  • Expy: If Huyang had Threepio's temperament... he even gets a cute astromech pal in Tales from Wild Space.
  • Living MacGuffin: The only reason why the Empire is going after Lina and Milo is because they have Crater with them. Why? Because Crater contains the data on Wild Space that they're looking for. If the Empire gets a hold of the contents in his head, it could put innocent life in Wild Space in danger and possibly get Rhyssa & Auric killed.
  • Losing Your Head: He gets reduced to a head at one point for the rest of the series, but since the important information is in his head, it's all good as long as the Grafs don't literally lose him. He gets better.
  • One Degree of Separation: Tales from Vader's Castle reveals that during his time as a rebel, he befriended Chopper.
  • Uncertain Doom: At the end of "The Rescue", the Graf family returns to Lothal to help the Bridgers in their transmissions. Considering Vizago has already stated not too long ago that the Empire will step in soon if Azadi can't find whoever's behind those transmissions and their associates... and unlike the Grafs due to the Graf Archive, Crater isn't guaranteed any chance of survival.
  • Unexplained Recovery: It turns out he's fine, as he returns in Tales from Wild Space from the Adventures comics. It's still unknown what happened in between besides that probably accompanied Milo and Lina when they piloted the Star Herald during the Galactic Civil War.

    Emil Graf 

Emil Graf

Species: Human

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

Appearances: Adventures

The grandson of Milo Graf. Similar to the rest of the family, he was a stellar cartographer.


  • Like Father, Like Son: Well, like grandfather like grandson. Both Milo and Emil had Kowakian monkey-lizards as pets, the former having Morq while the latter has Noni.
  • Punny Name: Maybe. Emil's first name backwards is "lime", which makes him pretty close to "line graph", like his great-aunt Lina. His name is also similar sounding to his grandfather's, Milo.

    BB-00 

BB-00, AKA "Boo"

Model: BB-series astromech droid

Appearances: Adventures

Emil's astromech droid.


  • Expy: Of Artoo and BB-8. Boo's dynamic with Crater is even similar to that of Artoo and Threepio respectively, being cute and curious while Crater complains.
  • Meaningful Name: "Boo" is an Affectionate Nickname, like "baby" or "babe". According to Word of God, Boo is named after the author's youngest daughter, who goes by the same nickname.

Racers

    Loo Re Anno 

Loo Re Anno

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/loo_re_anno_sw.png

Appearances: Han Solo

"This is not how I expected to run my last race. But then, the race is life... and life is unpredictable, is it not?"

The last of her species, Loo Re Anno is the greatest living race pilot during the reign of the Empire. She encounters Han Solo during the Dragon Void Run, a legendary race founded by her ancestor.


  • Ace Pilot: She is the ace racing pilot.
  • Cool Old Lady: Implied to be hundreds, if not thousands, of years old, and proves to be a wise being who sees much potential in Han and aids him both in the race and his mission for the Rebellion.
  • Last of Her Kind: Allegedly, she is the last known member of her people. An Imperial officer wonders how such a thing happens (a bit hypocritical, since the Empire has been behind a few near-extinctions of their own), and Loo Re Anno tells him that it usually requires some help. Turns out this is not quite true; she is simply the last of her species in that dimension, the rest having fled to someplace between space and time using the gate at the end of the Dragon Void Run to escape their enemies.
  • Living Legend: The other racers in the Dragon Void Run acknowledge her as the greatest pilot alive, with even Delan Vook showing her respect. Han is surprised that the "living" part is still true.
  • Long-Lived: Her species seems to have long lifespans, and she comments that her ship is as old as some stars.

    Nowk Asil and Sotna Reat 

Nowk Asil and Sotna Reat

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nowk_and_sotna_sw.PNG
Sotna (top) and Nowk (bottom)

Species: Twi'lek

Appearances: Han Solo

Two female Twi'lek racers who pilot the Starshot. They compete in the Dragon Void Run held not long after the destruction of the First Death Star.


  • Ace Pilot: Both of them are highly skilled starship pilots. They manage to make it through the entire Dragon Void, something dozens of other elite pilots fail to do.
  • Bare Your Midriff: Their flight suits leave part of their stomachs exposed.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: Sotna's appearance was based on Heather Antos, the assistant editor for the Star Wars comics.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: Nowk is green-skinned, Sotna is purple-pink-skinned.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: They think Han has an ulterior motive for being in the Dragon Void Run and assume that he is smuggling based on his ship and attitude, which they view as a insult to the race. Technically, they are right: he is smuggling, but his cargo is spies for the Rebellion instead of something for personal gain.
  • Those Two Guys: They're never seen being apart from each other.

    Delan Vook 

Delan Vook

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

Species: Pantoran

Appearances: Han Solo

A male Pantoran pilot and racer who participates in the Dragon Void Run held shortly after the Battle of Yavin.


  • The Casanova: He is almost always seen surrounded by women when outside of his ship. Han even refers to him as a Pantoran playboy at one point.
  • Jerkass: Not a pleasant person to be around, to say the least. His racing tactics also leave a lot to be desired. At one point he uses the Millennium Falcon as a shield from drones shooting at his vessel and then shoots at the drones around them, putting Han and Chewie's lives in danger.
  • Facial Markings: A Pantoran tradition, although his aren't the usual yellow.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Although he is a well known racing pilot, he seems to think that the Empire would care about that sort of thing. When the Empire tries to shut down the race by arresting the pilots, Vook asks if they know who he is and demands to be released. His continued protests about his rights eventually cause a stormtrooper to punch him.
  • Worthy Opponent: His one redeeming quality is his immense respect for Loo Re Anno, who he always refers to respectfully as "my lady".

    Marcus Speedstar 

Marcus Speedstar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marcus_speedstar_icon.png

Species: Human

Voiced by: Keston John
Appearances: Resistance

A three-time winner of the Five Sabers. He is also the younger brother of Jarek Yeager.


  • Ace Pilot: He's won the Five Sabers multiple times, is a celebrity, and outraces the other Aces (although not without some struggle). But even then, Yeager cleanly beats him in this field.
  • The Atoner: After getting his sister-in-law and niece killed, he looked for Yeager to apologize to him and make up for his mistakes. When Oplock is held hostage by the Guavian Death Gang as revenge towards Marcus, Marcus does his best and cites part of his motivation as having learned from the last time he put his loved ones at risk.
  • Awesome McCoolname: His last name of Speedstar is just an alias, and it can be assumed by his brother's last name that his own is Yeager. Yeager is unimpressed.
  • Famed In-Story: He's well-known enough in racing circles that Kaz and Tam visibly fangirl/boy when he's introduced, and they're shocked that Yeager and Marcus even know each other, let alone that they're related.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: He seeks out fame and glory and is also mixed up in gang activity, while Yeager would rather stay out of racing and stick to a quieter life after a traumatic event. Marcus' recklessness and arrogance led to Yeager's family getting killed.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: He resembles his voice actor, Keston John.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: His cockiness resulted in him trying to use hyperfuel to win a race, but he lost control and his and Yeager's ships crashed on top of Yeager's wife and daughter. Marcus tried to atone for his actions, but Yeager distanced himself from him for the next decade.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He wears purple and he's a famous Ace Pilot, only surpassed in skill by Yeager.
  • True Companions: He's friends with his mechanic, Oplock, and tries to save him from the Guavian Death Gang's revenge attempt more because he cares about him than because he needs a mechanic.

    Oplock 

Oplock

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oplock_icon.png

Species: Esral'sa'Nikto

Voiced by: Jonathan Lipow
Appearances: Resistance

Marcus' personal mechanic.


  • Canon Immigrant: Oplock is an Esral'sa'Nikto, or Mountain Nikto, one of four other Nikto subspecies (aside from Red and Green Nikto introduced in the Canon) that was introduced in Legends.
  • Distressed Dude: The Guavian Death Gang holds him hostage as leverage against Marcus and threaten to kill him if he doesn't win the Platform Classic.
  • True Companions: He stayed with Marcus even after the accident and forgave him.
  • The Unintelligible: He can only speak his native language, which sounds like grumbling and screeching to Basic speakers. Neeku can understand him, likely because he's a Nikto too (albeit a different subspecies from Oplock).

Crew of the Mighty Oak Apocalypse (aka Moa)

    Lohgarra 

Captain Lohgarra

Species: Wookiee

Homeworld: Kashyyyk

Appearances: Lost Stars

The captain of the freighter Mighty Oak Apocalypse. She is old even by her species' standards, and her fur's gone almost completely white. She's been working as a trader in the Mid and Outer Rims for centuries by the time she hires on Thane Kyrell to her crew. Lohgarra and her crew run supplies on the fringes of Imperial space, often bringing supplies to worlds suffering under the Empire's rule.


  • Cool Old Lady: She's centuries old, and is a pretty relaxed boss.
  • Doomed Homeworld: Kashyyyk was conquered by the Empire and most of its people enslaved. Lohgarra laments that her once beautiful homeworld is now corrupted by the Empire.
  • A Mother to Her Crew: She acts like a parent or grandparent to her crew and fusses over their well-being, including frequently asking Thane if he's getting enough to eat. Lohgarra even knits a scarf for Methwat when she thinks he is getting cold aboard the ship.
  • Put on a Bus: Along with her crew, after Thane leaves to join the Rebel Alliance.
    • The Bus Came Back: The Moa joins the Rebel Alliance as an auxiliary craft in the leadup to the Battle of Endor.
  • The Unintelligible: She's a Wookiee. What else did you expect?

    Brill 

Brill

Species: Tarsunt

Appearances: Lost Stars

The Moa's engineer.


Miscellaneous

    Delia Leighton 

Delia Leighton

Species: Human

Homeworld: Lothal

Appearances: Smuggler's Run

A female human from Lothal who owns the Serendipity, a 1550-LEX yacht converted into a mobile bar that frequently serves as a meeting place for spacers, smugglers, and bounty hunters. Delia is a long-time associate of Han Solo, although she likes Chewbacca better.


  • Action Girl: Keeps a sawed-off scattermaster under her bar just in case trouble ever breaks out, and also pilots the Serendipity quite well in combat situations.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Han, Chewie, and Ematt from Commander Beck when they are captured.
  • Cool Old Lady: Still owns the Serendipity thirty years after the Battle of Endor, and is still bugging Han about paying back his tab.
  • Cool Starship: She got the Serendipity from a elderly Duros spacer who frequented the bar she worked at on Lothal. Despite not knowing him that well, he left her his ship when he passed, and she decided to turn the freighter into a mobile bar.
  • Good-Guy Bar: She may cater to the less reputable members of galactic society, but she prefers her clients to be among the more morally upstanding members of that community. Delia even allows her bar to be used as a meeting point for Rebel agents.
  • Sawed-Off Shotgun: Her scattershot that she keeps under her bar.
