Captain Phasma
"You were always scum."

Phasma was, first and foremost, a survivalist. She would stop at nothing to preserve her own life -- even if it meant endangering the lives of and abandoning those who had remained loyal to her and her cause.

Born and forced to learn to survive on the dangerous backwater planet of Parnassos, Phasma’s first encounter with the First Order was by accident. But shortly after learning of their existence, she was determined to escape her homeworld and join them in exchange for helping Brendol Hux and his men off of it.

Once appointed a captain of the regime, Phasma suited up in her armor, fastened her cape, and became one of the most ruthless officers in command of the First Order’s army of stormtroopers.

There is much we still don’t know about who she really was. But with every new story focusing on her legacy, we gain a little more insight into how and why she became such a feared force of darkness in the galaxy.

Captain Phasma is one of those characters who first appeared in a Star Wars movie but benefits tremendously from material published in the Expanded Universe outside the films. Her story extends far beyond the first two sequel trilogy movies, and she’s definitely a villain you won’t want to forget.

If the mysterious backstory of Phasma has you curious about where she (and her chrome armor) came from, these stories are definitely worth adding to your reading list.

Throughout the book, readers learn the ruthless extremes the character takes in order to survive, and how she finds herself among the high ranks of the First Order, despite never having heard of them before.

One of the most cunning and merciless officers of the First Order, Captain Phasma commands the favor of her superiors, the respect of her peers, and the terror of her enemies. But for all her renown, Phasma remains as virtually unknown as the impassive expression on her gleaming chrome helmet. Now, an adversary is bent on unearthing her mysterious origins—and exposing a secret she guards as zealously and ruthlessly as she serves her masters.

Deep inside the Battlecruiser Absolution, a captured Resistance spy endures brutal interrogation at the hands of a crimson-armored stormtrooper—Cardinal. But the information he desires has nothing to do with the Resistance or its covert operations against the First Order.

What the mysterious stormtrooper wants is Phasma’s past—and with it whatever long-buried scandal, treachery, or private demons he can wield against the hated rival who threatens his own power and privilege in the ranks of the First Order. His prisoner has what Cardinal so desperately seeks, but she won’t surrender it easily. As she wages a painstaking war of wills with her captor, bargaining for her life in exchange for every precious revelation, the spellbinding chronicle of the inscrutable Phasma unfolds. But this knowledge may prove more than just dangerous once Cardinal possesses it—and once his adversary unleashes the full measure of her fury.

Written with input from director Rian Johnson, this official adaptation of Star Wars: The Last Jedi expands on the film to include scenes from alternate versions of the script and other additional content.

From the ashes of the Empire has arisen another threat to the galaxy's freedom: the ruthless First Order. Fortunately, new heroes have emerged to take up arms—and perhaps lay down their lives—for the cause. Rey, the orphan strong in the Force; Finn, the ex-stormtrooper who stands against his former masters; and Poe Dameron, the fearless X-wing pilot, have been drawn together to fight side-by-side with General Leia Organa and the Resistance. But the First Order's Supreme Leader Snoke and his merciless enforcer Kylo Ren are adversaries with superior numbers and devastating firepower at their command. Against this enemy, the champions of light may finally be facing their extinction. Their only hope rests with a lost legend: Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.

Where the action of Star Wars: The Force Awakens ended, Star Wars: The Last Jedi begins, as the battle between light and dark climbs to astonishing new heights.
