Corran Horn
You’re good kid, but you’re no Luke Skywalker.

He’s a pilot, a detective, and, *spoiler alert*, a Jedi!

But even more than that, of course, we all know that he’s the favorite character of Youtini founder Corey Helton!

Though he may fly an X-Wing and wield a lightsaber, Corran Horn is cut from quite a different cloth than his slightly more famous predecessor, Luke Skywalker.

Like Han Solo, Corran comes from Corellia and never wants you to tell him the odds! He doesn’t take well to being told what to do and often clashes with authority figures like Wedge Antilles, Tycho Celchu, and even Skywalker himself. From the early days of Legends, Corran’s story slowly unfolded throughout the 90s, and his legacy continues well into the New Jedi Order and beyond.

Throughout his history, Corran’s far from perfect attitude helped set him apart from the Skywalkers and the Solos. In the Legends timeline, Luke Skywalker becomes a larger-than-life Grand Master of the Jedi Order, seemingly incapable of misstepping. Corran Horn, on the other hand, is a less-than-perfect Jedi who almost dies four times in his debut novel, X-Wing: Rogue Squadron! He is incapable of performing Force telekinesis, and he is extremely hard-headed and self-absorbed despite his rich family lineage and history with the Jedi of old. However, this history serves as his anchor point and his drive to discover more about his past as he propels forward into Jedi training, even after he’s found a home within Rogue Squadron.

And that’s only scratching the surface. Love him or hate him, Corran’s character arc is one of the most well-developed in the early days of the EU, if the legends are to be believed, he may even be a stand-in for his original author, Michael Stackpole.

X-Wing Series

In his first entry into the groundbreaking X-Wing Series, Michael Stackpole tells the story of Wedge Antilles reforming the legendary Rogue Squadron. This series was the first of the EU that did not feature the “Big Three” of Han, Luke, and Leia. Instead, we are introduced to original characters such as fan-favorites Tycho Celchu, Corran Horn, and Mirax Terrik. Taking place two years following the destruction of the second Death Star, this story focuses on Wedge as he takes on a mission with his newly constructed squadron during the midst of the Galactic Civil War. X-Wing: Rogue Squadron not only sets the stage for the rest series, but also lays major groundwork for the entire Legends EU that follows.

I, Jedi is the only novel written in a first-person point-of-view in the Legends universe, written from the perspective of Corellian security officer-turned-X-Wing-pilot-turned-Jedi-trainee Corran Horn. The novel divides into two main sections: Corran’s time training on Yavin IV at Luke’s Jedi Academy, and Corran’s pursuit of the pirates who have kidnapped his wife. In some ways, it retcons Kevin J. Anderson’s Jedi Academy Trilogy into including Corran, Mara Jade, and Kam Solusar, not shying away from being critical of Luke’s leadership. With help from Mara, Corran takes on the sprit of the ancient Sith Lord, Exar Kun. With some new Jedi skills under his belt, Corran goes full Dark Knight with his stealth mission to infiltrate the Invid pirates!

X-Wing: Rogue Squadron not only sets the stage for the rest series, but also lays major groundwork for the entire Legends EU that follows.

They are the X-wing fighters: sleek, swift, and deadly. And as the struggle rages across the vastness of space, the fearless men and women who pilot them risk both their lives and their machines. Their mission: to defend the Rebel Alliance against a still powerful and battle-hardened Imperial foe in a last ditch effort to control the stars!

Its very name strikes fear in enemy hearts. So when Rebel hero Wedge Antilles rebuilds the legendary Rogue Squadron, he seeks out only the best, the most skilled, the most daring X-wing pilots. Through arduous training and dangerous missions, he weeds out the weak from the strong, assembling a group of hard-bitten warriors willing to fight and ready to die.

Antilles knows the grim truth: that even with the best X-wing jockeys in the galaxy, many will not survive their near suicidal missions. But when Rogue Squadron is ordered to assist in the assault of the heavily-fortified Imperial stronghold of Black Moon, even the bravest must wonder if any at all will survive.

It is at the evil heart of a battered and reeling Empire: Coruscant, the giant city-world from whose massive towers the Imperial High Command directs the war. The Rebels will invade this mighty citadel in a daring move to bring the Empire to its knees. But first Wedge Antilles and his X-wing pilots must infiltrate Coruscant to gain vital intelligence information.

Capture means death or, worse, enslavement by the vicious leader known as "Iceheart": Ysanne Isard, now Emperor in all but name. And one of Rogue Squadron's own is already her slave, a traitor hidden behind a mask of innocence, working to betray both colleagues and the Rebellion itself.
