"General, they've been hit."
―Nastia Unamo[src]

Nastia Unamo was a human female who served the First Order as a chief petty officer on board the bridge of the Resurgent-class Star Destroyer Finalizer,[1] the flagship of Kylo Ren and General Armitage Hux,[3] during the Cold War era.[4] She supervised the massive Star Destroyer's crew and reported to higher-ranking members of the command crew such as Lieutenant Dopheld Mitaka.[1] While on the bridge she wore a black lighter fabric duty uniform with spotless regulation boots and intercomm headset. Unamo had fair skin, black hair and blue eyes.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

Nastia Unamo first appeared in 2015 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens. She was portrayed by Kate Fleetwood, who was credited only as "First Order Officer",[4] with the character's name first being revealed as Unamo in the reference book Star Wars: The Force Awakens: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo and released in conjunction with the film.[2] The character was then given the first name Nastia by author Adam Bray[5] in the 2019 reference book Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition.[6] The name Unamo reminded Bray of Russian expatriates that he had known while in Vietnam, and so he chose his favorite Russian woman's name, Nastia,[5] enjoying the fact that it also appropriately sounded like the word "nasty".[7]

I had the honor of retconning her with a first name, Nastia. Unamo reminds me of the many strong Russian expatriates I knew in Vietnam. Nastia is my favorite Russian lady's name." (backup link)

I thought it a fitting name for an officer of the villainous First Order who was hunting Rey and BB-8 in The Force Awakens." (backup link)
