At Polygons The New York Comic Con panel focused on The High Republic, Asked comics editor Susanna Polo Scott about the arc of her story, which focuses on the new Jedi: Kiev trens. We look at pages from the comic.
“Kiev is a brand new Jedi,” Scott said. “After the great disaster, Before re-evaluating the galaxy after such a deadly event, she posted to Starlight Beacon [a massive space station, which is out in a vast, starless expanse of space, which literally acts as a beacon for travelers who are going out to the frontier]. Now, that’s something she never did. She wanted to send her to the post. She is ready for that life. Suddenly she finds herself with some of the key Jedi of that era, the people who see her as heroes are now her peers, so she has to deal with it, especially when she started meeting some of the people involved who helped a lot in the great disaster and the great catastrophe. ”
Cavan said Kiev was one of the first designs to return to the story group long before the story group was even called the High Republic. Phil Noto first described the Jedi in a warlike attitude, “And I zeroed in on her and locked her up. So in a way the character design was original and helped me build around how she is. ”
Like many Jedi in the High Republic era, Kiev had a unique way of seeing the Force. As Cavan describes her power as a cloth, or Cavan, “this massive work of art that spans the universe, is full of different threads and warp and weft of the galaxy. The thing for Kiev is that she has not yet found her own thread, so she sinks in by stepping back and looking at the bigger picture and seeing how she fits. ”
Minor spoiler: She fits one with it, but Two Badas Lightsabers.
