The Star Wars Universe Gets Even More Diverse Thanks to This Imperial Captain

Say hello to Ciena Ree, a member of the Imperial Navy and one of the Galactic Empire's youngest captains. French illustrator Aurore Folny brought the character to life from Claudia Gray's Star Wars novel Lost Stars. 

Here's the plot description:

This thrilling Young Adult novel gives readers a macro view of some of the most important events in the Star Wars universe, from the rise of the Rebellion to the fall of the Empire. Readers will experience these major moments through the eyes of two childhood friends--Ciena Ree and Thane Kyrell--who have grown up to become an Imperial officer and a Rebel pilot. Now on opposite sides of the war, will these two star-crossed lovers reunite, or will duty tear them--and the galaxy--apart? 

The image debuted on Lucasfilm's new 'The Star Wars Show.' They mention Ciena is the captain of the Imperial Star Destroyer "The Inflictor," a.k.a. that downed ship you saw Rey ride past on Jakku in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Ciena will also be in an upcoming expansion for Star Wars Armada.
