Split Page[edit]

Given the new Star Wars canon makes only characters from the 6 movies, Star Wars The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels canon, I propose that the page be split into 3 sections, Canon, Legends and Infinities, based off the three stages of canon. Someone must make these changes, as this article makes little sense without them.

For more information, see The Holocron Database and Wookieepedia. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:50, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Canon status is pretty immaterial at Wikipedia; we're more preoccupied with what is verifiable. This may be a useful proposal/notion at e.g. Wookieepedia, but it doesn't really have an impact here. --EEMIV (talk) 02:22, 26 January 2015 (UTC)
It's still misleading to potential readers to leave the page in its current state. TheDidact118 (talk) 15:23, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
Canon status is apparently the standard for inclusion in List of Star Trek characters, so why not here? I say remove all the non-canonical characters - the ones who are not in the official films or the canonical TV shows. This means, for example, not including characters from the 80s cartoon shows, just like how the Star Trek Animated Series characters are not canon. I would say, we could wait until after the next movie(s) come out, in order to see if any of the book/novel/video games canon is migrated over, but there will be (or already are) many people coming here to read about the characters from the new movies, and not caring about the book or comic characters that aren't in the same canon. Even better, it will make this page much shorter. Mathmannix (talk) 18:49, 20 March 2015 (UTC)
Canon-ness isn't a standard for inclusion at the Trek wikiproject or, I think, anywhere; as a whole, we are instead concerned with verifiability. (And, even if canon-ness were an inclusion criterion at one wikiproject, that's not a compelling reason to adopt it elsewhere -- no more so than, say, suggesting the other project ditch it because it's not required at some other project.) The inclusion criteria here and at other lists of characters in both franchises/wikiprojects is pretty vague and weak -- generally, verification being the only requirement. There have been suggestions at this talk page (and/or the Trek character ones) to winnow that down to e.g. characters who've received a modicum of third-party coverage (but short of the critical mass to meet WP:GNG), but those notions have stopped short of implementation. Lastly, while a section break along "canon"-ness lines might be navigable by a fan, "Legends," "Canon," and whatever the third item is would be cryptic descriptors for non-fans and thus inappropriate. --EEMIV (talk) 20:21, 20 March 2015 (UTC)


Kreiya of KOTOR II redirects here despite her not featuring anywhere in the article. Should really be fixed as it looks sloppy on wikipedia's part. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:39, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Jolee Bindo does the same thing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:30, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

As does Atton Rand. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:26, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Better to just delete the articles that redirect here, but don't feature any relevant content. Star Wars always seems to get irrational favorable treatment at WP. -- (talk) 01:44, 11 December 2012 (UTC)


Say. For characters who have infoboxes, in the captions, should we put in more info about the character or what is going on in the picture?- B-101 17:29, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Organization of characters[edit]

Why are the characters listed by their 1st name? It makes more sense to list them by their last name

He's right. The characters are not listed in alphabetical order of surname. This list needs sorting.
I'm busy at the moment, but I might just take up the task when I come back to this page.
Christopher, Salem, OR (talk) 18:12, 18 October 2010 (UTC)


I'm working on amalgamating this and all the other god-awful lists at Category:Lists_of_Star_Wars_characters to remove all the ORish and arbitrary topics (i.e. what makes a character a "villain"? what if he/she later is "good"?) and repetition (e.g. Leia shows up on several of them). Once I've squished them together, they can be broken up just alphabetically like the slightly-less-crappy Star Trek character lists. I've copy-and-pasted these lists as of ~11:30EST 3 Oct -- if you make any additions to this list, I'll try to be sure to maintain them in the reworked version, but please be mindful that something might accidentally be overlooked. Thanks! --EEMIV (talk) 15:39, 3 October 2008 (UTC)

Barriss Offee[edit]

Barriss Offee redirects to here but she's not listed. Why? Why does she not have an article but Luminara Unduli does? Dismas|(talk) 02:20, 23 October 2008 (UTC)

You could always be bold and write one! -- Kyle Maxwell (talk) 21:37, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Someone lost![edit]

Not only Barriss Offee is lacking, but many others (I was searching for Luuke [sic] Skywalker). I found the lost infos in this old revision of List of minor Star Wars villains. Someone should fix this problem soon. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 14:58, 26 November 2008 (UTC)

Someone Confused?[edit]

Alright, I haven't been a member that long, but I know the page isn't supposed to look like that. There's only one line of info and nobody's names. It's called a list for crymony! I mean, this ain't the most important page on the site, but it's kinda... crappy.


I'm curious what other editors think about the notability of some of the folks in the list. The article says it's for "prominent" characters (clearly apart from major characters like Han Solo that deserve their own article), but I personally question whether this should be cleaned up based on appropriate topics for stand-alone lists. Just something I'm thinking about, so I'd appreciate any discussion on the matter. -- Kyle Maxwell (talk) 04:41, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

I'm all for culling this list even further than when I amalgamated it. Establishing criteria for prominence might be a bit difficult, especially for EU characters. But, yes, I've noted some trivia-creep the last week or two. --EEMIV (talk) 04:46, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

external link removal[edit]

While I fully agree with removing all the external links, I believe it would be more appropriate to do so as long as whoever removes the links is replacing them with an appropriate reference. It seems that about half of the characters on this list (notable or not) don't have any citation, which needs to be fixed. KhalfaniKhaldun 17:01, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

The links being removed are to Wookieepedia (which every entry has, but doesn't count as a reliable source for citation purposes) and the Databank -- to which many of these entries are already cited with a footnote. The ref-less entries on the list do not have (or didn't, a few months ago when I put this together) Databank entries; I wholeheartedly welcome references to other sources -- Essential List of Characters, maybe? --EEMIV (talk) 17:13, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

Tahiri Veila[edit]

I do believe its BUBKISS that "Tahiri Veila" Is not on this page. I think soemone needs to do that pretty quikly to make this page any good... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:30, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

Broken links, cleanup needed[edit]

The disambig page Ghent (disambiguation) has a link to here, but there is no entry for such a character. Reading this Talk page, the same is true for many other characters. Looks like when entries were deleted, nobody went through Wikipedia to check for (now) broken links to this article. This should be done. (I am not a Star Wars fan, so have no inclination to do it.) HairyWombat (talk) 17:31, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Deleted Star Wars entry on Ghent (disambiguation). HairyWombat (talk) 21:18, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Proposed #REDIRECT page Ghent (Star Wars) for deletion, and this has now happened. What is needed now is for somebody to clean up the rest. (A good place to start would be Special:WhatLinksHere/List_of_Star_Wars_characters.) HairyWombat (talk) 04:54, 17 June 2009 (UTC)


Wasn't the decoy queen and handmaiden "Sabé" also in the second movie? Some sort of decoy queen was killed in that one, right? (talk) 17:45, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Sabé was only in episode one. Cordé was the decoy killed at the beginning of episode two. Dormé is the remaining handmaiden in episode two.Cariel (talk) 15:06, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Criteria for inclusion[edit]

Seeing a bunch of gunk creeping in, what do y'all think about entries on this list requiring a {{cite}}ation to a secondary source or an in-line reference to a specific novel, book, game, etc. etc. in which the character appears/speaks/has influence? Some of the EU characters of borderline notability probably lack the former (and in general I prefer not to use {{cite}} for primary sources). Should help avoid generic/dubious entries like the stormtrooper at the very top (soon to be removed), and make clean-up do-able by folks who aren't die-hard fans. --EEMIV (talk) 03:12, 28 May 2009 (UTC)

So a character that actually has quite a bit of screen time and lines in the films, like Dormé, doesn't make the cut? Though she had less screen time than Sabé, all of her lines were her own, not while pretending to be Amidala. I think that warrants her being on the list more than others that still remain on the list. Cariel (talk) 15:04, 27 September 2009 (UTC)
WP:SOFIXIT and WP:CITE it. --EEMIV (talk) 15:08, 27 September 2009 (UTC)

Where are Gorc, Pic and Maw? I want to know more about these guys. Danceswithzerglings (talk) 19:14, 12 October 2009 (UTC)

This list needs help[edit]

Either we need to have a big list with minor to no description, or several smaller lists that would allow for not such a tremendous list, and not require so many characters "not making the cut". Maybe someone from the Star Wars project could make some decisions on that.Quickmythril (talk) 05:06, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Please see previous comments (e.g. the section above) about this. --EEMIV (talk) 05:07, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I've read all the entries here. I don't understand what you mean. Quickmythril (talk) 05:16, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
This list does need improvement. Tennispro45 00:16, 16 August 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tennispro45 (talkcontribs)

Cad Bane[edit]

  • I think Cad Bane should get his own article now since he is a pretty major character villain now. DjMack71 (talk) 17:09, 11 October 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. Jhenderson777 (talk) 20:03, 5 February 2010 (UTC)


Can anyone remember why Yane is redirecting here but nothing about in the article? -- TomK32 (talk) 13:20, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

It's one of Padme Amidala's handmaidens. (talk) 13:10, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Linking to Wookiepedia?[edit]

I was trying to link "M-3PO" to wookiepedia on the bit about Emtrey but it wasn't working, can people who are good at linking to pages on other wikis please help. I feel that linking it would be good as it tells you (in detail) about the M-3PO series. m w (talk) 12:27, 9 June 2010 (UTC)Phthinosuchusisanancestor

That kind of linking is generally dissuaded, and this list in particular could too quickly be overwhelmed by tons of external-pointing links. The EL section at the bottom linking toward Wookieepedia and are enough to steer folks toward more in-universe details. --EEMIV (talk) 12:33, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Galen Marek/Starkiller[edit]

Seeing as how Starkiller has had an entire video game (two, come October) centred around him, he should be given his own character page. -- DeCarta (talk) 1:51, 9 June 2010

Negative. The character has not had any significant third-party coverage independent from those video games. The character is appropriately briefly mentioned here, and sufficiently covered in an encyclopedic manner in the article about the major work in which he appears. --EEMIV (talk) 14:59, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
I've considered giving Starkiller his own article, and raised the idea here. Feel free to comment on it. Harry Blue5 (talk) 15:45, 17 November 2010 (UTC)


Magnaguards redirects here but has no entry. --Flex (talk/contribs) 21:26, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Removing characters.[edit]

Clearly, there is a "mission" to dismiss the notion of what characters are notable. Perhaps you don't like my choices for removal of characters. But by rules of Wikipedia, I could have cut out most every single character for the fact that none of them assert notability. If there is no proper response to the problem, a problem which is on its fourth discussion (none of which leading to any fixing of the article), I will remove any unreferenced section, save for sections for characters with articles. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 12:04, 1 December 2010 (UTC)

Individual items on List of... pages do not have to meet a threshold for independent notability -- that's a guideline that applies to subjects receiving separate coverage in their own article. There are several sections of this talk page asking for contributors to chime in with a threshold for inclusion here -- spoken dialog? published story's antagonist/protagonist? Please actually engage there with a suggestion for inclusion criterion rather than adopt a bellicose tone about removal of large swaths of content, deserving or not. --EEMIV (talk) 12:56, 1 December 2010 (UTC)
This may be true, but it is completely out of hand. There is no inclusion criteria, and as such, the list is large, unwieldy, and difficult to get through. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 20:37, 16 January 2011 (UTC)::

How can you have all of those R2 units featured on this character page? Most of them are useless and get blown away in episode one. They are irrelevant and should be removed from this article. -- (talk) 19:08, 27 August 2012 (UTC)

List of characters in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series[edit]

I've started an article in my userspace called "List of characters in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series". Feel free to edit it. Hopefully, we'll be able to make an article on them and properly detail the characters. I've got a bunch of sources in my Sandbox, so it might be worth looking at. Harry Blue5 (talk) 22:00, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't yet see sufficient material to warrant [restoring] a stand-alone list; the content to which you linked would more appropriately be integrated here or in the individual game articles. Still, though, very good work. --EEMIV (talk) 03:26, 15 February 2011 (UTC)
I'm not really sure the sources would fit neatly into the list, especially for Darth Malak. Come to think off it, this list has absolutely no third party real-world sourcing... Anyway, it'd also be nice to further detail the characters, as a single sentence or so per character doesn't really explain them well. Harry Blue5 (talk) —Preceding undated comment added 18:10, 15 February 2011 (UTC).

In all due seriousness...[edit]

This needs to be trimmed massively. We need to either get rid of many by splitting into separate character lists, or simply direct people to the respective articles (for example, if we were to not make a KoTOR article, any characters who only appear in that game would simply redirect to that game. This list is getting out of hand. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 01:10, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

I think we should make it so that characters have to have appear in either X amount of times (unsure what number to specifiy) or in such a huge pivitol role in such a huge pivitol game/film/book/etc. that they get in anyway. The last guideline will probably be subjective, so we might have to ignore it. Harry Blue5 (talk) 21:43, 22 February 2011 (UTC)
We can't use a "number of appearances" guideline. We use our best judgment. Number of appearances allowed Spike Traps from The Legend of Zelda to be in the Recurring enemies article. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 22:42, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
This would be so much easier if the EU hadn't given every single background character a fleshed-out backstory. Okay I don't think any of the droids under (#) should be on the list, with the exception of 4-LOM. Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:02, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Well, it all depends on multiple factors. Would a "List of supporting Star Wars characters" listing a couple paragraphs of info for each work? All "main" characters I would think have articles, or you could make a "List of main characters in Star Wars". This "supporting characters" list would have information on characters who are notable enough for information more then this page, but not for a full article.(this would be completely up to editor's discretion, and could use discussion to create a general consensus) Then, like any other article, a list of characters for a specific series like "KoTOR" would need to have significant coverage of some kind. This would have to be from at least 2 characters on the list that are not split. I would think this list would still be allowed to be active though. Blake (Talk·Edits) 23:09, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Each work? Do not underestimate the size of the Star Wars Expanded Universe. It leads only to anger, frustration and the dark side. Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:22, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
It is most important to simply redirect most characters to the article of their origin for characters appearing in EU items that don't belong in any lists. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 23:31, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I knew that would be confusing, yet I said it anyways. I meant "Would a "List of supporting Star Wars characters" listing a couple paragraphs of info for each CHARACTER work?". As in "Would that work?" Sorry for the confusion. Blake (Talk·Edits) 23:43, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Also note, like I said above, this would only be for characters who really deserve having more then a 1 sentence description. Blake (Talk·Edits) 23:46, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
Are all EU characters by nature "supporting", or are some considered "main". E.g. Would Kyle Katarn, Revan and Darth Bane be "supporting"? Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:53, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I am not sure what you mean by "EU". Elaborate? Characters that go in Supporting would be characters that were influential to the plot of whatever universe. Although the problem with this plan is that there would be "main characters" in this list due to not having anywhere else to go. Should we have a "List of main characters in Star Wars" just to contain these, and to link to the appropriate articles for those that are split? Blake (Talk·Edits) 00:57, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
EU = Expanded Universe Harry Blue5 (talk) 07:18, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

What about dividing the Star Wars film series characters and the characters created in the expanded universe. Then possibly we'll see if we can divide characters in the certain tv series / video game / literature list article etc. For example: List of Star Wars: The Clone Wars characters. We can use this certain article for linking those particular articles kind of like Lists of box office number-one films. It might be easier said than done though. But if done we can have more freedom to place more information about the characters. Jhenderson 777 23:38, 7 March 2011 (UTC)

Aside from Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane and Asajj Ventress, I can't think of any (slightly notable) characters to put on and justify a The Clone Wars list, film characters aside. But that just might be my lack of familiarity with the show. Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:45, 7 March 2011 (UTC)
I am talking about both film and the television series spinoff and there is numerous new characters created for the television series along with the characters that are not original in the show. Like Aurra Sing, (not counting Star Wars episode one cameo), Captain Rex, Zirro the Hutt etc. Also see this. The main reason why I recommend that is because whenever there would be a new character in that show guess where they would probably go, here. And they need better place for information. No notability is required to introduce a character in the list article as long as there is room. Jhenderson 777 00:01, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
If a list contains just names and basic info, like this list does, then there is very little inclusion criteria. But if the list actually contains real information, like we are discussing, there needs to be some sort of criteria. We can't just have people who were only in one episode. Blake (Talk·Edits) 00:57, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Why are we discussing what I said is a maybe. And I don't feel that actual information I pointed to should be a article. There's got to be more information about it and that's why it is suggested. I suggested we should do something else first and maybe that can work. Jhenderson 777 01:14, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Henderson on making a Clone Wars list. It's not about individual characters; we could have information discussing the character designs in both CG and hand-drawn animation, both of which are unique from anything ever made in Star Wars before, and I doubt that no reviews exist that discuss the characters. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 02:29, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

And keep in mind that was just to name a few of examples of dividing certain Star Wars media. Obviously Harry Blue5 has his own example by dividing the characters in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series up above which could work as well. But mainly I concur that something needs to be done with this list article. Star Wars is a giant media franchise that can always put a new character in the spotlight. And the lack of information about these characters is dull. Jhenderson 777 19:03, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

On the note of my example, aside from Calo Nord and the other guy, do you think the KotOR list is ready to go now? Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:10, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
It's not bad. Have you checked all of the reviews of KOTOR for reception? - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 20:52, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Character concept section and critical reaction sections are recommended for a stand alone list article. I could give a whole bunch of examples but I will use some that I have worked on: List of Avatar: The Last Airbender characters, List of SpongeBob SquarePants characters, and the never recognized List of The Spectacular Spider-Man characters. Jhenderson 777 21:55, 9 March 2011 (UTC)

Removed characters...why?[edit]

I added the following characters to the list before their removal: Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes, Barada, Pablo-Jill, Barquin D'an, and Coleman Trebor.

I added a couple of these characters more than once (they were removed more than once). Pablo-Jill and Barada are both not that notable, but I had only just made my account and was experimenting with the editing, and I understand why they were removed. However, as for the other ones, I am questioning why:

Coleman Trebor is notable for being shot and killed by Jango Fett, and many Star Wars fans would be able to recognize him if it is explained who he is.

I believe every member of the Max Rebo Band is on the list, but I noted Barquin D'an wasn't, so I added him. But he was removed.

Figrin D'an and the Modal Nodes have their own article, which I linked to when I added them to the list. They are notable, so I don't understand why they were removed.

Can someone tell me why these characters were removed from the list? Thanks in advance. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Starwarsmaniac42 (talkcontribs) 23:32, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Jango Fett shot a lot of people. What makes Trebor any more notable than the rest of them? Honestly, I don't think each member of the Max Rebo Band should be on the list, let alone have an own article on the band. Maybe list Max Rebo, but I don't any other of the band members should be on the list. Harry Blue5 (talk) 01:29, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
I am at a loss to understand people who think less information is better than more information. Rick Norwood (talk) 00:04, 30 October 2011 (UTC)


I think this list should be separated by how the characters appear, such as one section the Prequel Trilogy and one of the Original. And I think there should be separate lists for The Clone Wars characters and other things, like books. Does anyone else agree? Starwarsmaniac42 (talk) 01:26, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

It's been suggested in the section two thingymajigs above. I've gone and created List of characters in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series. Harry Blue5 (talk) 10:38, 17 March 2011 (UTC)
I am likely to start creating a list for at least one of the movies, but I'm not completely sure. We'll just have to see what happens in the future, and if anyone else agrees with this idea and might be willing to help.Starwarsmaniac42 (talk) 00:55, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm a bit hesistant on splitting per movie, especially if we do split it into more subfranchises. Harry Blue5 (talk) 22:45, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
Splitting per subtrilogy no. But splitting all the film trilogy characters from just the only Expanded Universe characters could maybe work as I suggested before. The two different trilogy's can then maybe be split by section possible though. Jhenderson 777 22:50, 21 March 2011 (UTC)
I feel that it'd be best to cover characters originating from the prequel trilogy apart from the original trilogy; generally, their reception is independent from one another. - The New Age Retro Hippie used Ruler! Now, he can figure out the length of things easily. 14:25, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
I agree that there should be separate articles for film characters and expanded universe characters. That might help to split this article to where they can be covered better. Blake (Talk·Edits) 14:39, 23 March 2011 (UTC)

The Clone Wars characters[edit]

I'm starting up a List of Star Wars: The Clone Wars characters in my userspace. As usual, anyone's free to help. Just commenting here to see if anyone had any support/objections for the idea. Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:46, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Note that if I do make this list, I plan on merging Cad Bane into it due to his lack of unique sources. Harry Blue5 (talk) 23:47, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
I don't know about the idea of merging Cad Bane, he seems fine as a article when it comes to development section and having a reception section. And the reception stands out with notability. And per WP:Split he seems fine standing alone. I do prefer a article that had it's own DYK in the main page to stay and be expanded but that's just me. Jhenderson 777 00:44, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
We don't have to merge him into the Clone Wars list, but I don't really think he has enough reception for his own article. I think that Cad Bane could fit really nicely into the list, as we could easily put development into the character ala List of Street Fighter characters#Balrog. Harry Blue5 (talk) 08:19, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
In my opinion Balroq didn't have to be merged either. But as I said I am normally a inclusionist and am not a big fan of forced redirections unless the article is terrible in some way. Also there is a lot of other kind of reviews such as reviews of Cad Bane's action figures if that counts. I noticed the article is also uncomplete in the other portrayals section for he has appeared in the newest Lego Star Wars video games I do believe. Basically what I am trying to say if the article qualifies WP:GNG no need for merge. Jhenderson 777 13:42, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Wait, did Cad Bane have an action figure? 'Cuz if he did, that should be in the article. Harry Blue5 (talk) 14:38, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Yes check here and when I clicked Cad Bane reviews I got mostly action figure reviews. I also know Cad Bane is in Lego Star Wars I can find a source for that if you want. Also I found a Entertainment Weekly source focusing on Cad Bane which can be good for reception of the character. Check here. I will probably be looking for more. :) Jhenderson 777 16:50, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Here's the source for Lego Star Wars toys and like I said he appeared in the latest Lego Star Wars video game I do believe. Jhenderson 777 18:57, 18 April 2011 (UTC)
Okay, I won't merge Cad Bane into it. Are there any other characters I should add into the list? Harry Blue5 (talkcontribs) 16:36, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Merging Cad Bane is probably not a terrible idea if it is beneficial maybe making the list article better. We'll see later on but for right now let's leave as is. Here is the film characters and here is the television series characters. The television is definitely including a lot it even included Chewbacca in the last episode in Season 3 so there is quite a few characters to include. Does these section links help? Jhenderson 777 17:40, 28 April 2011 (UTC)
Question, is Plo Koon actually a main protagonist? Harry Blue5 (talkcontribs) 18:40, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────He's a recurring character. I am not sure I would say main though. He would probably belong more on the Jedi section. Jhenderson 777 19:32, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

Bringing up the quality issues again.[edit]

I feel that this list is of too low quality to be used as a merge target. As is, you cannot possibly merge anything from the article, as every character is given only a sentence of description, a couple if they are lucky. We either need to cut characters not notable enough to be mentioned, or split the list off ASAP. - New Age Retro Hippie (talk) (contributions) 19:59, 4 October 2011 (UTC)

The problem with this list is that it lists every single person in the Star Wars universe that has a name. It needs to be cut to have only important characters that are not notable for an article, but notable enough to mention in some form, such as Wedge Antilles, Nute Gunray, Ki-Adi-Mundi, etc. List of characters in the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series is a good example of a list that works. Blake (Talk·Edits) 20:58, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
The KotOR list has a slight advantage in that, at the end of the day, it's only coverring a single series, while the SW EU is pretty much covering hundreds of different stuff. – Harry Blue5 (talkcontribs) 12:27, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Well, why does there need to be a list of all characters from every media all in one place? Why not have a short list(or prose) in the articles of the "extended universe" media they appear in? Blake (Talk·Edits) 17:46, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Because of the vastness of the Expanded Universe, certain characters (usually related to some Skywalker) have appeared in a whole bunch of series, which makes it harder to pin them down to anything in particular. We could make a rule "must have appeared in more than one series", or something similar, and then split other characters across the series articles they're in. – Harry Blue5 (talkcontribs) 18:23, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
So make a Reoccurring characters in Star Wars article, and split the others to where they belong? Blake (Talk·Edits) 18:25, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Could work. It might also be worth checking if there are any more series that would be worth giving their own character list article. – Harry Blue5 (talkcontribs) 12:25, 7 October 2011 (UTC)


The entry for Nien Nunb reads as follows.

"Nien Nunb – portrayed by Richard Bonehill (in full body suit) and Mike Quinn (as puppet aboard the Millennium Falcon), voiced by Kipsang Rotich Sullustan and Lando Calrissian's co-pilot in Return of the Jedi."

Who the dickens was Sullustan? And, if he was a pilot in Return of the Jedi, why isn't he listed?

Rick Norwood (talk) 00:06, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Just discovered that Sullustan is a race, not a character. I'll rewrite the entry to make that clear. Rick Norwood (talk) 00:09, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Asyr Sei'lar[edit]

Whoever edited her out of this list is an asshole.

-- (talk) 19:42, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Seriously. A bunch of random R2 units no one has ever heard of or the New Republics top ranking female fighter ace.

Star Wars The Old Republic[edit]

With the game now being release, I believe we should add a few central characters from it. I already added Darth Malgus and Grand Master Satele Shan with references. Alexj25 (talk) 10:57, 20 December 2011 (UTC)

Padme Amidala[edit]

dies giving birth....The birth of Luke and Leia was further complicated... More complicated than dying? She must've had a REALLY hard time with it. Can we rephrase this? (talk) 05:20, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

The links are broken, which is most of the links on this page[edit]

This page has more than a hundred links to . The site broke that path, and all those links are 404. There are new paths for some characters, like:

But I couldn't find entries for the minor characters that I checked. I marked one link dead, individually, before I saw the size of the problem. Personally, I don't have a bad enough feeling about this, to be motivated to wade into that. Maybe someone with more skills can do it semi-automatedly.

Sun Fac[edit]

Sun Fac is the Geonosis 2nd in command of Poggle The Lesser. During the battle of Geonosis a clone commando task force, a.k.a Delta squad was sent to eliminate Sun Fac. Sun Fac was offered to hide with the other separatist leaders but he refused and attempted to escape the planet. However, when he taking off in his Geonosis Star-fighter,clone trooper Delta 07 shot Sun Fac's star-fighter down with a clone sniper rifle. Sun Fac was killed in the star-fighter explosion. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:28, 19 August 2012 (UTC)

Many listed but not sourced[edit]

Trying to understand this list when only familiar with the theatrical films is near impossible, as many of the names don't indicate if they're from movies, television, comic books, video games, novels, or whatever. I only made it through the D's and found these give no indication of where they appear (undoubtedly there are more examples): Abeloth, Darth Andeddu, Bail Antilles, Attichitcuk, Garm Bel Iblis, Nas Choka, Darth Cognus, Cradossk, Hego Damask, General Oro Dassyne, Gizor Delso, D'harhan, Lok Durd. (talk) 04:29, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

Bail Organa?[edit]

Bail Organa forwards to this article, but he is only briefly mentioned on the page; there is no character listing of him in the list. (talk) 17:27, 10 October 2013 (UTC)

Dead links[edit]

About half of the external links in the references are labelled with "dead link". This looks stupid. Shouldn't the references be removed? JIP | Talk 08:48, 23 November 2013 (UTC)

I have a question. For "Siri Tachi", couldn't it also be, "Siri Taichi"? I've seen both spellings of her name in different places and don't know which is the right spelling, it could be misspelled here in this article. (talk) 21:06, 12 November 2014 (UTC)

Can we stick to canon?[edit]

Can we stick to what's canon for this list? Can we possibly have a list like "List of Star Wars Expanded Universe characters"? For example, Shaak Ti was not killed by any Galen Marek fellow, because that video game is not canon. The only canon material for Star Wars are the six movies, Star Wars: The Clone Wars film, Star Wars: The Clone Wars TV series, and Star Wars Rebels. --AmaryllisGardener talk 14:51, 9 April 2015 (UTC)

Canon status isn't a criterion for inclusion for this wikiproject or Wikipedia as a whole; instead, verifiability rules the day. Where e.g. two different stories present conflicting details, that's just worth pointing out and citing. Canon-ness with regard to this list of a red herring for unclear inclusion criteria. It might be worth culling this to include, for example, only characters about whom we can find at least one instance of third-party commentary (outside licensed texts). This page, though, is so low-profile as to not have garnered much attention or discussion around inclusion criteria. --EEMIV (talk) 15:48, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
What I wonder, is what will we do when episode VII comes out, and what will we do if it doesn't agree with the EU stuff, like if I've heard correctly of the EU stuff, perhaps no Mara Jade Skywalker or Yuuzhan Vong Invasion? I, personally, like what they've done at Skywalker_family#Family_tree. --AmaryllisGardener talk 18:27, 9 April 2015 (UTC)
I came here to say the same thing LOL. Separating the canon and EU characters would do a world of good. Doesn't even have to be on separate pages; just a canon section and an EU section.Oscar666kta420swag (talk) 01:54, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
