Everyone loves The Book of Boba Fett‘s Black Krrsantan. The intimidating Wookiee bounty hunter made his live-action debut in the second episode and went on to cause havoc in the third in a killer fight scene. As a former bounty hunter, Fett clearly respects Krrsantan’s abilities, and I’m betting we haven’t seen the final of this Wookiee.
But hardcore Star Wars followers have been loving the man for years. He first made his debut seven years in the past in Marvel Comics’ Darth Vader #1, written by Phonogram, The Wicked + The Divine, and Uncanny X-Men’s Kieron Gillen. With his character now exploding in reputation, Gillen is having a superb time. Earlier this week, he commented on Twitter that:
Now he’s revealed what the character’s title was in his first drafts and it’s sheer genius:
Krrsantan has an extended, lengthy method to go earlier than ever being as standard as ol’ Chewie, but it surely’s at all times good to see new Wookiee characters in Star Wars.
I’m hopeful we’ll get a take a look at his cool backstory in upcoming episodes. As defined within the comics, he fled Kashyyyk to take down teams of slavers, ultimately turning into a famend heavyweight fighter in an underground enviornment. Here he acquired some cool upgrades, together with metallic knuckle prostheses that give him “permanent knuckle dusters”.
He went on to work for each Jabba the Hutt and Darth Vader, at one level tangling with Obi-Wan Kenobi after he took Owen Lars hostage over a water tax. He’s a enjoyable character and a real Star Wars badass. We need extra of him, and shortly.
