―Sharp tastes the salt covering the surface of Crait[src]

"Salty" Sharp was a human male soldier who served as a sergeant in the army of the Resistance during its war against the First Order. After surviving the First Order's Battle of Oetchi, he was amongst the Resistance personnel who managed to reach an outpost on the planet Crait. Sharp was deployed into the trenches outside of the outpost in order to hold off the First Order once they attacked.


Sharp,[2] known by the nickname "Salty," was a sergeant in the army of the Resistance during its war against the First Order.[1] In the year 34 ABY,[3] Sharp was amongst those Resistance members who survived the attack by the First Order on the Resistance fleet after it evacuated from the Resistance base on the planet D'Qar. Along with the other survivors, the sergeant arrived at the abandoned outpost on the planet Crait[1] in a U-55 orbital loadlifter transport[2] and was amongst the troops who manned the outpost's trenches in preparation for the First Order's assault.[1]

Sharp fought the First Order on Crait.

General Caluan Ematt[1][2] climbed out over the trench next to Sharp in order to try and spot the First Order forces with a pair[1] of quadnoculars[1][2] and in doing so disrupted some of the salt that covered Crait's surface, revealing the red soil beneath. Curious about the salt, Sharp tasted a small amount and then confirmed its nature to the soldier next to him. The First Order attacked soon after, but ultimately those Resistance members who survived the battle escaped on the YT-1300 light freighter known as the Millennium Falcon.[1]

Personality and traits[]

Sharp had fair skin, gray eyes and gray hair.[1]


He wore a brown poncho and brown pants and boots on Crait, also carrying a hepta-mag ammunition carrier belt and a helmet marked with his rank.[2] He used a EL-16HFE blaster rifle while battling the First Order.[1][2]
