Today we received four new character descriptions from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. There are little tidbits of information that are pretty interesting. It isn’t clear what is on screen and what is backstory information but it is fun and informative none the less. Enjoy!
Description: Moroff seeks out combat zones to sell his brawn and firepower to anyone who might need it. The mighty Gigoran mercenary figures there’s money to be made for a towering heavy gunner.
Name: Rebel Commando Pao
Description: An amphibious Drabata, the fierce commando Pao charges into battle with a full-throated battle cry of “Sa’Kalla!” He joins the Rogue One team on its historic mission to secure the Death Star plans.
Name: Scarif Stormtrooper Commander
Trooper Class: Stormtrooper
Description: Specialist stormtroopers stationed at the top-secret Imperial Military headquarters on Skarif, Shoretroopers patrol the beaches and bunkers of the planetary facility.
Name: Hovertank Driver
Troopers class: Stormtrooper
Description: Imperial combat drivers operate the Empire’s arsenal of armored repulsor vehicles. Combat drivers are highly armored, relying instead on the thick skin of their vehicles to protect them in the battle.
One of the biggest things to take away from this are Pao and Moroff’s descriptions. We now know that Jyn’s team is indeed called “Rogue One,” not to anyone’s surprise of course. Pao also has an epic battle cry which is pretty sweet. When it comes to Moroff, I can see him getting killed pretty quickly if he sells weapons on the battlefield. Scarif also has some Imperial headquarters on it, which is interesting. I can’t wait to find out what Pao does in the film. We’re almost there!
