The history of Star Wars: The High Republic takes place 200 years before the events in the saga dedicated to the history of the Skywalker family and, despite numerous and substantial differences, there are two very interesting characters in one of the official novels published at the same time as the comic book series were presented.
At a time when the Jedi Order succeeds in maintaining peace in many systems and the High Republic appears to be able to administer power without internal conflict and confrontation, their alliance has led to it Construction of a new operational base in the outer peripheral areaswhere dangers seem to be on the agenda. In Claudia Gray's novel Into the Dark, we follow the journey of four Jedi to the base Starlight Beaconon board the ship called Vessel, which is commanded by Leox Gyasi and Geode.
LeoxAs you can see in the picture below, it appears with a design that is strongly reminiscent of that of Han Solo, with whom it also seems to have temperament in common, but in contrast to the Millennium Falcon pilot Leox He's a pacifistalways tries to avoid using the blaster, even against the dangerous nihils and the horrific creatures called Drengir that were featured directly in the novel. At his side, Chewbacca's counterpart, we find Geode, belonging to the race of sentient rocks called Vintiani.
Geode appears visibly as a giant boulder, and although he doesn't speak or move much compared to the other characters, he has proven himself in combat a good companion and an experienced copilot. What do you think of these spiritual successors to Han Solo and Chewbacca? Let us know with a comment below.
Remember, Lucasfilm presented a short animated video to the Nihil, and we'll let you find out what the terrible Drengir are.
