First appeared in: Star Wars: Darth Vader #3
Young, spunky Aphra is firmly Team Vader, and that alone is an indicator of her fearlessness. You don’t deal regularly with a Sith Lord like Vader unless you’re a force to be reckoned with, and Aphra is certainly someone you wouldn’t want to cross.
The talented “rogue archaeologist,” who made her first appearance in the pages of Darth Vader 3: Vader, Part 3, began working under Vader due to her highly sophisticated ability with droids. She sought out and activated both 0-0-0 and BT-1, seen above on this list, and lived to tell the tale. This act spoke volumes to Vader, who tasked her with building his own private army of loyal droids.
The pair traveled to Geonosis, where Aphra was able to pull off the heist of a lifetime: an entire droid factory. She later used the factory to manufacture an entire series of BX droid commandos. In the comics, Aphra consistently proves her ability and pedigree as a capable strategist, always a step ahead.
But Aphra is more than her profession or allegiances. She’s a brash anti-hero channeling Solo’s swagger with the unpredictability of any roguish bounty hunter throughout the universe. What will she do, and who will it affect next? This wild card is a loose cannon, but her antics are always entertaining.
