"Speaking of Briala, she's got a card deck, once we mop up here, we're going to play a game of Lifters back on the Thunderstrike"
―Lylee Anaraku, to Brand[1]

Lifters was a card game which involved suits of cards.[1] Between 2 BBY and 0 BBY,[2] the rebel Briala had obtained a deck of cards which she and the Mirialan Lylee Anaraku planned to play Lifters with aboard the CR90 corvette Thunderstrike following a mission to the planet Allst Prime. Anaraku also invited the rebel trooper Brand to play with them while on Allst Prime.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Lifters was mentioned in the short story "Inbrief," written by Janine K. Spendlove and first published in Star Wars Insider 161[1] on November 10, 2015.[3]

  2. In Battlefront: Twilight Company, the rebel trooper Hazram Namir refers to Brand as a bounty hunter during the battle on Vir Aphshire, which occurs concurrently with the Battle of Yavin. As "Inbrief" establishes that Brand's bounty hunter past was not known by other rebels until the battle of Allst Prime, that battle must have taken place before the Battle of Yavin, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. Since the Rebel Alliance participates in the battle of Allst Prime, the battle must take place after the Declaration of the Rebel Alliance, which is placed two years before the Battle of Yavin by Star Wars: On the Front Lines. Therefore, the battle of Allst Prime, and thus the main events of "Inbrief", must take place between 2 BBY and 0 BBY.
