Kara Safwan was a human female who was hired by the criminal Rang Clan to spy and gather intel on the operations of the rival criminal group known as Crimson Dawn.[1] In 10 BBY,[3] she was on board First Light, the yacht used by Crimson Dawn's leader Dryden Vos, when it traveled the planet Vandor to collect a delivery of stolen coaxium.[2] Safwan blended in well with the other revelers on board, and drank Vandor ice water to keep her head clear; however, Vos's concierge Margo suspected she was up to something and discreetly blocked her attempts to get deeper into the crime lord's inner circle.[1] Safwan had fair skin and brown eyes and hair. While on the yacht, she wore a matching black and gold dress and top.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Kara Safwan first appeared in the 2018 film Solo: A Star Wars Story[2] and was first identified in the accompanying reference book Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1] Lucasfilm Ltd. localization coordinator Kristen Hidalgo confirmed on Twitter that the character was named by Pablo after Saf Davidson, a host of several Star Wars podcasts.[4]

  3. Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide dates the events on Vandor in Solo: A Star Wars Story to nine years after the formation of the Galactic Empire. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the formation of the Empire to 19 BBY, therefore the event on Vandor in Solo must take place in 10 BBY.
