Which new characters should appear in the Clone Wars in 2011?

Picture found at:

1. Senator Garm Bel Iblis:

Garm is the Senator from Corellia, created by Timothy Zahn in the Thrawn Trilogy and established in the EU as one of the founding members of the Rebel Alliance. Who because of a falling out with Mon Mothma left the Rebel Alliance and waged a private war against the Empire.

We have already a had Mon Mothma introduced as well as a number of other minor Senators, Garm is an obvious character who should be in the series to connect it to the rest of the EU. I really wonder if Lucas has something big planned for Corellia as it has been noticablh absent from the series, given the planet/systems importance in the rest of the EU material.

2. Cathar Jedi

The Cathar are simply a cool species, picture a feline wookiee type species.

3. A young Wilhuff Tarkin:

It could just be a cameo, but it would be very cool to see a young Wilhuff Tarkin seeking to suck up to Chancellor Palpatine.

4. More Republic Commando characters:

We will be getting a brief appearance by Delta Squad in the Season 3 episode "Monster" debuting Jan. 14. But we haven't seen any Mandalorian training Sergeants, Kal Skirata, Walon Vau or any other of Mandos would be awesome. There is also Etain Tur-Mukan and Bardan Jusik the staring Jedi of the series.

5. The Caamasi:

The destruction of The Caamasi homeworld and later Alderaan destroyed most of the Caamasi in the GFFA, however they are a very interesting looking species which according to the EU had a strong effect early in the Jedi's history in developing Jedi philosophy and morality. They seem to be the perfect species to include in the Clone Wars both from a visual point of view and because they were pacifists who could make interesting opposition voices in the show.

6. Jedi Master Djinn Altis and Callista Masana:

Master Altis and Callista would be very interesting characters for Anakin to interact with given his romantic attachment issues. It would also allow for the introduction of Jedi Praxeum ships into the series, which according to Jedi Path seem to be a relatively common mode of Jedi training in the Old Republic.


  1. I think a great character to include would also be A'sharad Hett who later goes on to become darth Krayt in the legacy series

  2. A'sharad Hett is a great suggestion Matt. They I doubt they tell the same story as was told in the comics but having he and Anakin interact would be interesting or he and Ahsoka.

  3. Yeah thats what i was thinking. Depending on if they use him with the Tuskan gear or already without the mask. That would make for a interesting story line if they use him with the Tuskan garb considering Anakin's past and feeling about the Tuskans. I think it could show some real complex character development when you throw Ashoka in the mix as well. Just something that i was thinking about
