"The Empire killed my friends."
―Hazram Namir blaming Mishru's death on the Empire — (audio) Listen (file info)[2]

Mishru was a male soldier who lived on the Outer Rim planet Crucival. During the Imperial Era, he was recruited by the human soldier Hazram Namir to join his band. In 0 BBY, the band was invited by the Galactic Empire to help defend Crucival's transmitter tower. Most of the band, including Mishru, was killed in the battle.


The soldier Mishru lived on Crucival,[2] an Outer Rim[3] planet where various competing factions were at war with each other, during the Imperial Era. After losing his master, Mishru hid his brand, a symbol of his former faction, and robbed passersby in the streets. Hazram Namir, another soldier who had once fought against him, eventually recruited Mishru to join him and other soldiers who were ready to stop drifting between the reoccurring wars on the planet.[2]

In 0 BBY,[1] the Galactic Empire offered to arm any volunteers who would help them defend Crucival's transmitter tower against an incoming attack from the Rebel Alliance's 61st Mobile Infantry. Namir and his band of soldiers took the offer; however, nearly all of them died in the first wave of the attack. By the time the battle had ended and the Empire was defeated, only Namir lived, with Mishru and the rest of the band having been killed. Namir blamed their deaths on the Empire, prompting him to join the 61st a week after the battle.[2]


Mishru was given a rifle and a particle blaster by the Empire, which he used during the Battle of the Tower.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Mishru was mentioned in the 2015 novel Battlefront: Twilight Company, written by Alexander Freed.[2]
