Avon Starros was a human female[2] who was the daughter of Galactic Republic senator Ghirra Starros and a member of the Starros clan.[3] She was an aspiring inventor who lived during the High Republic Era. At the time of the Great Disaster, Starros, along with her protocol droid J-6, was supervised by Jedi Knight Vernestra Rwoh while traveling on a cruiser to the dedication ceremony of the new space station Starlight Beacon. However, when bombs went off aboard the cruiser, Starros, J-6, Rwoh, Padawan Imri and Honesty Weft escaped in a shuttle and wound up stranded on a nearby moon.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Avon Starros appeared in the junior novel The High Republic: A Test of Courage, written by Justina Ireland.[2] Avon shares the name "Starros" with her descendant, the Imperial Era smuggler Sana Starros.[3] The publisher's summary for A Test of Courage stated that Avon was eleven years old during the events of the book, whereas Ireland stated in a Comic-Con panel that Avon was twelve years old. Ireland later clarified that Avon was indeed twelve during the events of A Test of Courage.[4]

  1. SWYTlogo.png Star Wars: The High Republic | Announcement Trailer on the official Star Wars YouTube channel (backup link) states that the events of Star Wars: The High Republic, which include the events of The High Republic: A Test of Courage, take place two-hundred years before the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. Since Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace to 32 BBY, it can be deduced that the events of The High Republic: A Test of Courage take place around 232 BBY. As Justina Ireland has stated that Avon Starros is twelve years old during A Test of Courage, thus setting Avon's birth around 244 BBY.
