- "Luke… I think we are too far from the village by now. Do you think we will be alright?"
"No worries, Windy."
- ―Windy and Luke Skywalker
Windy was a human male who was a childhood friend of Luke Skywalker, a moisture farmer from Tatooine who later joined the Rebel Alliance. Other members of this circle of friends included Biggs Darklighter, Camie Marstrap, Deak, and Laze Loneozner. Obi-Wan Kenobi once rescued both Windy and 12-year-old Skywalker from a krayt dragon after discovering the two unconscious in a sandstorm.
Behind the scenes
The character of Windy first appeared in some of the earliest drafts for Star Wars. The character did not make the cut of the final film of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, but appeared in deleted scenes and appeared in a number of Star Wars Legends stories, variously as Windom Marstrap and Windy Starkiller. The character also appears in Star Wars LINE Webtoon, but the Webtoon comic falls into a canon "grey area" as the comic was allowed to have cultural interpretation. The events of the comic were referenced in the 2018 reference book Star Wars: The Complete Visual Dictionary, New Edition, but says that Luke was aged twelve, whereas the comic states he was thirteen.
