    One of my favorite moments from Rogue One was a heartbreaking line delivered by an alien.

    Admiral Raddus, as he slowly realizes the team on the surface of Scarif is trapped, and has made the ultimate sacrifice, says simply and with deep reverence:

    "Rogue One...May the force be with you."

    Let us all bow to the generous heart of this wise Mon Cal warrior.

    I don't think he's dead.

    Can't wait to buy his action figure.

    There's an old saying characters aren't dead until u see them die. so Raddus could still be alive.

    I rather liked Raddus; hoping he was captured by the Empire and we'll see a story of his liberation. Then again, he never appears in the OT...

    Great character who did not get away IMO. The Tantive IV escapes but not him.

    Raddus was great. They should have given him a death scene! (since we know he is dead :( )

    We don't see all the crew of Mon Cala cruisers- there is slight chance he could've survived- like being captured by the Empire but that means he may have been executed.

    If they captured the Admiral I can imagine it something like this will appear...

    Admiral Raddus was the best. He didn't wait for any of the politicians to stop their politicking and do something on Scarif, he was already on his way when Mon Mothma even thought to ask for him. Also, he played a crucial role at the end, unlike many others back on Yavin..... cough.... cough...

    I am. I declare myself humble fanclub president or tyrannical dictator, depending upon everyone else's acceptance of my clearly rightful status.

    RADdus is GOAT.

    Raddus doesn't like to wait for politicians. He was a Calamari of action.

    He may have been imprisoned. The empire didn't kill all the Rebel soldiers on the Tantive IV. We see them marching them toward the airlock. So, it's possible.

    Although, I can see Raddus taking a blaster and dodging back and forth riding in his moving command chair; while shooting at troopers coming onto the bridge.

    In my headcanon, Raddus blasted Vader's legs out from under him... which he had to replace while in pursuit of the Tantive IV... killed over 300 Stormtroopers with his bare hands, bit the face off of a handful of officers, set the Profundity to self-destruct, causing untold damage to the Star Destroyer it was docked to, downloaded a virus into Coruscant's entire computer system, contacted Kenobi and told him to be on the lookout for Leia and then jetpacked out of the ship and became the anonymous mastermind behind the entire downfall of the Empire.
