Jordan Hembrough goes to Washington Township, New Jersey, to chat with FJ, a collector who has used the lessons of Star Wars throughout his life. When he was younger, FJ struggled with who he was -- but in Star Wars, he saw the power of diversity, equality, and being proud of oneself, no matter what.
Jordan Hembrough heads to Beaverton, Oregon, to meet Christina Cato, a Star Wars fan who taught herself the art and science of droid building. Challenging herself, Christina worked months to build her own functioning astromech from scratch; in the process, she discovered that she's capable of more than even she herself previously believed.
Inside Fort Ypso on Vandor, gladiator droid WG-22 is part of a band of modified droids made to battle to the point of destruction in Ralakili’s droid fighting pits. The droid’s mechanical limbs can puncture metal with a devastating might powered by electricity produced in his interior power cells. But when a fight is interuppted by the plaintive protests of another droid, L3-37, her cries for droid rights end up costing WG-22 dearly.
Moloch’s goon Rebolt administers justice with a crude but effective bludgeoning club fashioned from a snapped transmission mast. Rebolt has nicknamed his staff the “Commander of Staves,” a nod to the sabacc face card, and cruelly delivers an extra jolt from time to time with the added boost from a power cell.
Before being sold into slavery and put to work in the mining operation center on Kessel, DD-BD was an overeager WDD adminmech working on a Morseerian pirate ship. Unfortunately, the ship was impounded by the Empire, and DD-BD was sold at auction to the Pyke syndicate for a fraction of his worth. But in a chance meeting with L3-37, the small droid is liberated when his restraining botl is removed, igniting a small rebellion.
A dedicated student of Teräs Käsi, in hand-to-hand combat Dryden Vos often wields a pair of custom-made Kyuzo petars. The sleek daggers serve a dual purpose, sporting a sharp tempered carbon edge that can be overlaid with a scintillating monomolecular laser at the flick of a switch. The slicing instruments were designed to fit his small human hands and specifically weighted to accentuate his fighting style.
On the off-the-grid planet of Savareen, the Bis Refinery is among the last of the coaxium-processing facilities not under the control of the Empire. Once a prosperous independent factory stripped down and ransacked by Crimson Dawn, the industrial facility is now a shadow of its former self with a complex system of machinery barely maintained through a crude patchwork of scavenged parts. Still, the areas of the plant that have been most completely restored can be used for small batches.
Once a mighty Wookiee from the inland tree city of Rwookrrorro, Sagwa was imprisoned and enslaved on Kessel after a failed attempt to defend his people from Imperial occupation. Years of toil inside the spice mines have taken a devastating toll on Sagwa’s body. His fur coat is dotted with balding patches, an outward sign of malnourishment and the untreated illnesses he’s endured, but the struggle has not dampened his spirit. When the brave Chewbacca comes to the rescue, Sagwa is prepared to help guide their people to safety and charter a ship home.
Hulking in stature, wearing a protective pressure helmet to keep ammonia gas pumping through her lungs and with a stoic, unreadable sabacc-face, Dava is an intimidating presence at the card table. Preferring the feel of standard gravity worlds to ease her aching back in her off hours, the rest of the time Dava can be found toiling as a deep cloud-miner on gas giant planets.
