Captain Riyola Keevan has a secret up her sleeve. She has worked for Chandrila Star Lines for about 30 years aboard the Halcyon and saw an opportunity in the ship’s manifest and large cargo hold. Emboldened by an encounter with Leia Organa to take a larger role in the Resistance, she turned the ship into a “rum runner” to pull off missions.

“We’ll learn a lot more about her and her role in some pretty iconic moments in ‘Star Wars’ history,” Walt Disney Imagineer Scott Trowbridge told Entertainment Weekly. He added that she runs the ship with “capability and professionalism second to none.” But, “there may be more to her than meets the eye.”
