Before Disney bought the Star Wars franchise, It was a vast network of content known as the Extended Universe. It was so amazing and popular that everything from the television shows to the comic novels were considered canon. When Disney decided to make a sequel to the Extended Universe Non-canon and translated as ‘Legends’ Content.
This list includes All the best characters from the Legends stories that we think should be added to the new Star Wars canon. Some of them have well-wrapped backstories in the mythology, but that doesn’t mean they can’t serve a new purpose as interesting characters in this alternate universe. If you can do it for Thrawn, you can do it for these other stars.
Galen Marek, also known as Starkiller, was a superhuman trained by Darth Vader. He was featured in Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, a video game that quickly became a fan favorite. Starkiller was secretly taken in as an apprentice by Vader, who raised him from childhood and trained him to be a personal assassin.
The Rule of Two means there can only ever be two Sith: Master and Apprentice. This is why Vader must train Starkiller in secret. Starkiller grew up wanting to become a true Sith, hoping to help Vader overthrow Darth Sidious and uphold the Law of Two.
Vader ordered Starkiller to rescue and destroy the remaining Jedi, but in modern canon, the Inquisitors played that role. still, It would be nice to see Starkiller again – maybe as the Inquisitor himself!
Nomi Surrider was an ancient Jedi Master. Most people know her from Tales of the Jedi comics, but she has appeared in many other works. She lived in the early years of the Galactic Republic. For most of her life, Nomi was not a Jedi. However, she eventually married Andr Surrider, a Jedi Knight in training, with whom she had a daughter, Vima. When Andur is beaten and killed by gang members, Nomi picks up Andur’s lamp and is forced to defend herself.
She went on to train under a Jedi who would go on to see Master Ton and become a Grand Master Jedi, and they were telling stories about her during the time of Anakin and Obi Wan. Nomi’s legacy is repeated through Star Wars Legends Through her daughter Vima and their descendants. Vima Da-Boda was Nomi’s great-great-great-great granddaughter and gave her lightsaber to Leia Organa Solo in the Dark Empire comics.
Tenel ka chme ta’ djo
Her lightsaber is powered by a rancor’s tooth. Just say it.
Tenel Ka is introduced in the Young Jedi Knights novels as a student at Luke’s Jedi Academy on Yavin. Along with Chewbacca’s nephew, Chewbacca, and Leia and Han’s children, Jaina and Jacen.
She is half Hapan; That’s a species from the Haps cluster that looks like an outsider (except a lot more attractive than the average person). Her father is the Prince of Happan. Her mother, Dathomiri, was a witch. Tenel Ka was raised equally in both parental traditions: the politics of matriarchal Happan society And Paths of power practiced by the sorcerers of Dathomir.
Although forced to relinquish her role to become the planet’s queen mother, she became a dominant figure in the galaxy and a powerful Jedi. Tenel Ka makes a great, powerful and complex female character for the Star Wars franchise, balancing the sensitive nature of politics with her role as a Jedi. She’s an example of a character who carefully navigates her relationship with legend — she falls in love and has a child with Jacen Solo and goes on to become Darth Caedus — but the effort pays off.
Now we have to start by saying this Technically Revan exists in canon in canon. However, he never got the proper attention he deserved because the game he was featured in (Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic) Legends. Revan is technically in canon because of the name drop found in the visual lexicon of the Skywalker movie.
Revan was a Jedi and a Sith. A person can be either male or female (depending on the player’s choice – although most content refers to Reva as male). As they progressed through the Jedi order, eventually becoming a Jedi Knight, Revan began protesting that the Jedi would not interfere in the Mandalorian wars. Eventually, they took matters into their own hands by rallying in support and donning the Mandalorian Mask. When Revan and his friend Malak begin to suspect that the Sith are somehow influencing the war, they investigate the Sith Empire until they see it and are turned to the dark side by the Empire.
Revan’s story is a twisted, twisted web of stories, betrayals, and forced-hijinks. Perfect fodder for new Star Wars content.
Do you remember the father, son and daughter from the Clone Wars and Rebels TV shows? They are. Mortis embodies the Gods of Power itself: the Son as the dark side, the Daughter as the light side, and the Father as the mediator between them. However, did you know that she was once a mother?

Mara Jade is known as the wife of Luke Skywalker and the mother of their son Ben. However, before that, Mara was in the hands of the Emperor, where she served as a secret operative. A bit like what Starkiller did to Vader. Mara trained in the Dark Side of the Force as well as other critical combat techniques and stealth techniques. Mara’s final order was given after his death: she was to kill Luke Skywalker.
Mara is a character that requires a bit of unraveling from Luke Skywalker to appear in modern canon, as Luke is never said to be married or have children. However, that doesn’t mean she can’t be seen as the Hand of the Emperor in her past life.Assassinate politicians, attack rebel forces and grow up under the care of a Sith Lord.
