- "Your father would be proud of who you've become."
"Ah, my father had maybe seen me once since my spawning. His focus was elsewhere. But I knew him. I studied every battle--every victory."
- ―Leia Organa and Aftab Ackbar on Gial Ackbar
Aftab Ackbar was a Mon Calamari male who was the son of Admiral Gial Ackbar. In the aftermath of the Battle of Crait, he became an associate of the Resistance which he supplied with a number of starships from Mon Cala. Aftab only saw his father Gial once after his spawning as the parent's focus was elsewhere. However, Aftab felt he knew the Rebel as he studied his father's military service.
Behind the scenesEdit
Aftab Ackbar was first mentioned in the 2019 junior novel Spark of the Resistance. He was first pictured on the cover for Allegiance 1, illustrated by Marco Checchetto, though did not appear in the comic itself.
