THE DARK TIMES
Larger than fully-grown humans, krykna were giant, spider-like creatures native to the remote world of Atollon. Predominantly white, they had six powerful legs, eyes around their head, and a blaster-resistant hide, making them fierce hunters. They often take their prey into an underground hive, where they cocoon their victims. Krykna attacked the rebels looking to establish a base on Atollon but the creatures were repelled by sensor markers.
One of the rebellion's pilots, Lieutenant Dicer was among the first to try to set up a base on Atollon. Unfortunately for Dicer, the world was not as desolate as believed -- huge spider-like creatures called krykna lived below the surface. After the krykna attacked, all that was left of Dicer was her helmet.
Chopper was the resident droid of the Ghost, assisting the crew in everything from ship maintenance to combat -- even though he didn't always want to. After many years of repairs and patch jobs, Chopper had a beat-up, worn look that matched his sometimes cranky personality. Aesthetics aside, he was an essential part of this small rebel team, and ultimately, was loyal and heroic.
The captain and heart of the Ghost crew, Hera Syndulla was a gifted pilot and leader. While Hera was a strong commander -- and especially adept at dogfighting with TIE fighters -- she was also warm and nurturing. The Twi’lek could bring out the best in her team, which consisted of very different personalities, making them believe in themselves, each other, and their struggle against the Empire.
