Magva Yarro participated in the peaceful protest against the Galactic Empire that turned into the Ghorman Massacre. Surviving the incident, she joined up with Saw Gerrera's Partisans to oppose the Empire, believing that the Alliance to Restore the Republic were ineffective cowards. Within the Partisans she served as a forward spotter for the Cavern Angels X-wing starfighter squadron, and also commanded her own UT-60D U-wing starfighter/support craft.
Yarro was present in the Partisans base in the Catacombs of Cadera on the moon Jedha in the year 0 BBY, when a group including Gerrera's adoptive daughter Jyn Erso were brought in as captives. Shortly after their arrival, the Partisans were forced to flee from their base when the Empire destroyed Jedha City with their Death Star superweapon, creating a blast wave that also eventually destroyed the catacombs.
Personality and traitsEdit
Magva Yarro was a naive idealist who once believed that the Galactic Empire could be combatted through non-violent means. Witnessing the Ghorman Massacre showed Yarro the true face of the Empire, triggering a psychological reaction within her that led her to seek out the fiercest faction in opposition to the Empire.
