The Mandalorian Duchess[6] Satine Kryze was depicted by Tanner as sitting in her throne room during nighttime. The Duchess is shown looking downward, clutching her chest with one hand as white flowers fall out of the other.[2] Of all their illustrations for Women of the Galaxy, Tanner only publicly commented on their depiction of Kryze, noting that they were especially happy to have illustrated her.[7]

Tanner's fourth illustration depicts Crimson Dawn Lieutenant[8] Qi'ra standing alone aboard[2] the Nau'ur-class yacht[9] First Light. In the scene, Qi'ra wears a black dress[2] originating from her appearance in the 2018 Anthology Series film, Solo: A Star Wars Story.[8]
