    Actually he is from the NJO, back when Luke's Jedi were actually kind of cool.

    How many human jedi in NJO have been confirmed to be "white"?

    Yeah, and he had less "screen time" than dozens of other new Jedi characters in the NJO. Seriously, Squibs have had more screen time than this guy.
    Contessa, RC-1991 and Mia Mesharad like this.

    Can't remember if I shared this before, but it is a 100% rating on the diversity scale.

    I do have to point out that canonically, if the AoR game is set pre-Yavin, the ANH screenshot is how the Rebellion should look. :p Kinda a bit of a plot point in Wedge's Gamble, if you recall.

    In terms of crazy hairstyles, certainly!

    Well good, I didn't think there was even one :p

    Text or art, all of it is considered canon.

    Like all contradictions, they're handled on a case-by-case basis. Sometimes they're all within an acceptable range of artistic license, sometimes one or more of the depictions is marginalized and ignored, sometimes we get an explanation for why the character looked different, and sometimes we get two different characters with the same name.

    The cover for Honor Among Thieves has come out, featuring a new author-created character, Scarlet Hark. This is a shift from author created characters like Cole Fardreamer. [On the other hand, we did have author-created women heroes like Mara Jade, Gaeriel Capistan and Belindi Kalenda (a woman of color!) so there's that.] Maybe she is a woman of color...it's hard to tell from the cover.

    Han looks really old and gristly here.

    I like how Han, Chewie, Luke, and Leia have all been realistically drawn to look like their movie selves, while new girl is inserted looking like she came out of a comic book.

    They weren't drawn. They were copy-pasted.

    I guess Leia's go-to pose is confirmed. Next time I hope we get a duck face.

    New character looks like Cecily Strong from SNL.

    Gun-hand! She must be D'harhan's niece.
