For the last year, there’s been small talk about a character based around the Thieve’s Quarter of Kijimi that appears to be an adversary of Zorri Bliss and our heroes. The details are sparse on this character at this time as is the importance. Right now, my guess is the character’s role is somewhere around the size is Unkar Plutt in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Everyone that has seen this new character has described him as Drax from Guardians of the Galaxy but with cybernetic implants. “Cyborg Drax” is he’s referred to off the cuff.
On Kijimi we have been told there’s a huge Stormtrooper battalion and some Snowtroopers in that mix. We believe the heat comes down on the snow dusted location and Zorri helps the heroes escape. Our assumption, which is circumstantial, makes me think Cyborg Drax rats them out Garindan style and he’s a First Order snitch or agent of some kind. He appears to be the obstacle the heroes have to deal with on their way toward the MacGuffin.
Hopefully more details on this new villain materialize soon. I really dig villains and the more we know the more fun, for me at least. So far I’ve enjoyed the range of bad cats in the sequel trilogy and I’m excited to see what The Rise is Skywalker brings us.
If this character is a stooge dispatched quickly or he has larger meaning is not entirely known yet.
