The Mandalorian: Amazing New Characters Introduced
Several new and important characters were introduced during The Mandalorian’s latest episode….
Spoilers ahead for The Mandalorian Chapter 11, The Heiress.
Still here? Good.
I am thrilled that someone took the time to pull together a nice synopsis of what we saw. The action was so fast and furious, it was a little hard to slow it down in mind as it was happening.
However, Austen Goslin of Polygon.com did us all a solid with a full breakdown.
Of course, you know Din Djarin (The Mandalorian), and The Child (Baby Yoda), and Frog Lady (Frog Lady), but now there are a few new additions to the Season 2 crew.
Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff)
As she explains in the episode, Bo-Katan is a native-born Mandalorian, and the rightful ruler of the planet. She’s a character that’s shown up frequently in Star Wars: Rebels and Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but this was her first appearance in live-action — though she was played by the same actor in all three series.
Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks)
Koska Reeves is a new character to the Star Wars universe. We know that she’s a Mandalorian, and thanks to her armor, we can tell that she was a member of the Nite Owls, a small squad of female Mandalorian warriors led by Bo-Katan.
Axe Woves (Simon Kassianides)
Axe Woves is another Mandalorian follower of Bo-Katan, and another new addition to the universe from The Mandalorian.
And, finally, THE reference — of a former Jedi — a certain former padawan.
Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson?)
Ahsoka only got a brief mention at the end of this episode, but it seems she’s going to be an important part of the story in The Mandalorian’s not too distant future. Ahsoka was a former Jedi who fought alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi and was the apprentice of Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars — though she left the Jedi Order before the war ended.
Be sure to get over to Polygon to check out the full breakdown by Austen Goslin. Great, great stuff, and very helpful for fans of The Mandalorian.
