I searched for a Kerra Holt fan club, but to my absolute shock, I have yet to find one- so that was something I HAD to rectify. Never started a fan club here before, so forgive me if I bungle this a bit. Anyways, with the release of Knight Errant and all its associate material, I've become a HUGE Kerra Holt fan. She's pretty without being a supermodel, she's confident without being cocky, she's intelligent without having all the answers, she's competent without being a female Luke Skywalker- in short, she's the kind of hero that stands out in Star Wars, a female protagonist done right. Moreover, Knight Errant has an incredible setting- the New Sith Wars are the Republic's Dark Age. With the Republic walled off in the core, the Sith all too busy fighting amongst themselves, and the people left to fend for themselves, the New Sith Wars are a galaxy gone mad. And like with Luke Skywalker and the OT before (or would that be AFTER? ) her, when the darkness is deepest, each individual light shines all the brighter. One Jedi can make a world of difference. What can I say? A New Hope is my favorite SW film, and while Kerra can't (for continuity reasons- see the Darth Bane novels, Jedi vs. Sith, and basically anything else covering the era) single-handedly help win the NSW like Luke was so integral to winning the Galactic Civil War, she CAN do something JUST as important: remind the people that "hope" and "light" are more than just words for long-forgotten concepts, that they can dare to dream of a better age, to again give them the courage to do more than just try to scrape by. While it'll be up to Lord Hoth and the Army of Light (with a little backstage help from Darth Bane) to finally end the New Sith Wars a generation later, Kerra can show the people out there, forgotten by the Republic, downtrodden by the Sith, that despite what the Sith want them to think, the Jedi have never for a moment forgotten them. Been unable to do much, yes- but never have they forgotten. And it's up to their own hometown hero, a gal who grew up in the very sector Knight Errant takes place in, to show them that. I mean, I was incredibly excited (to the point of babbling about Knight Errant not only to anyone who would listen, but half the people who WOULDN'T to boot! ) about Knight Errant prior to its release, and with each new issue or add-on to the project, the people behind Knight Errant have done nothing but wildly exceed all my expectations in every way. They've just blown my (already dang high!) expectations clean out of the water. And it's all of this together that has catapulted Kerra Holt up my list of favorite characters to tie the Jedi Exile as my all-time favorite female protagonist ever to come out of Star Wars (and my sixth-favorite character overall), after only one issue, a short story, and an Atlas addition. To quote JJM's production notes on Knight Errant: Aflame #1: "...it remains a series about a very bleak place, but the fire of defiance burns brightly in Kerra. She's a perpetual-motion machine. No one but a self-starter would last very long in Sith space alone!" So, let's hear it from my fellow Knight Errant and Kerra Holt fans! *space crickets chirp* ....anyone?
