ROGUE ONE: Character profiles

Source: [Collider] Here are the profiles of the main R1 characters.

Chirrut Îmwe. Deeply spiritual, Chirrut Îmwe believes all living things are connected through The Force. His sightless eyes do not prevent him from being a highly skilled warrior. Though he lacks Force abilities, this warrior monk has rigorously honed his body through intense physical and mental discipline.

Baze Malbus. The harsh reality of his Imperial-occupied home world has hardened Baze Malbus into a pragmatic soldier and a crack shot with his heavy repeater cannon. Baze has a bravado that provides a marked contrast to the spiritual centeredness of his best friend and moral compass, Chirrut Îmwe.

Captain Cassian Andor. An accomplished Alliance Intelligence officer with combat field experience, Captain Cassian Andor commands respect from his Rebel troops with his ability to keep a cool head under fire and complete his missions with minimal resources.

Bodhi Rook. A former Imperial pilot, Bodhi has strong piloting and technical skills that he will put to use for the Rebellions. Ever practical, but highly anxious, Bodhi must gather his courage to bring the battle to the Empire.


Two Tubes. Edrio Two Tubes is a mercenary pilot who f lies alongside his eggmate, Benthic. They share the nickname derived from the breathing apparatus that allows Tognath physiology to process oxygen atmospheres. Edrio’s native world of Yar Togna was conquered and occupied by the Empire, forcing him to flee as a refugee. With a desire to strike back at the Empire, Edrio and Benthic have allied with Saw Gerrera.

Director Orson Krennic. As director of Advanced Weapons Research for the Imperial military, Orson Krennic is obsessed with the completion of the long-delayed Death Star project. A cruel but brilliant man, Krennic has staked his reputation on the delivery of the functional battle station to the Emperor.

Jyn Erso. Putting behind a checkered past by lending her skills to a greater cause, Jyn Erso is impetuous, defiant, and eager to bring the battle of the Empire. Used to operating alone, she finds higher purpose by taking on a desperate mission for the Rebel Alliance.
