"Sir, one rebel ship escaped the blockade."
―Woldar, to Grand Admiral Thrawn[src]

Woldar was a human male who served as a commander in the naval forces of the Galactic Empire where he served in Grand Admiral Thrawn's Seventh Fleet by 2 BBY.


"The rebels who escaped Atollon must be tracked down and eliminated before they can regroup and join with other cells."
"I agree. But the Seventh Fleet and Commander Woldar can deal with that without you for now. Grand Moff Tarkin will also be joining the commander while his new assignment is being prepared for him."
―Grand Admiral Thrawn and Emperor Palpatine[src]

A human male officer in the Galactic Empire's Navy, Woldar was a commander in the Seventh Fleet and often reported to Thrawn.[1][2] In 2 BBY,[source?] during the Battle of Atollon, Woldar was present on the bridge of the Chimaera, and reported to Thrawn that a ship had escaped their blockade. Although all the rebels eventually escaped, their base was destroyed.[1]

In the aftermath of the battle, Woldar was assigned by Emperor Palpatine with guiding the Seventh Fleet in a search for the rebels who escaped Atollon. He was to be joined by Grand Moff Wilhuff Tarkin in this assignment.[3]

A year later, Woldar was aboard the Chimaera during the attack on Lothal. When General Hera Syndulla's Rebel Alliance strike force of T-65B X-wing starfighters emerged from hyperspace, Woldar counted 24 ships. In response, Thrawn deployed several TIE fighters including the new TIE/D Defender Elite prototype to intercept the intruders. After Syndulla steered Commander Vult Skerris' TIE Defender Elite into an Imperial light cruiser and a Star Destroyer, Woldar reported the damage to the Grand Admiral. Thrawn expressed regret but praised General Syndulla's skills as a combat pilot. Thrawn then ordered a second wave of TIE fighters to intercept General Syndulla's surviving fighters.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

Woldar shared a character model with different Imperial officers, which first appeared in the Star Wars Rebels Season Three episode "Iron Squadron" which aired on November 19, 2016. One of the character models, Woldar, was first identified in the end credits of Zero Hour which first premiered on Disney XD on March 25, 2017. He was voiced by Steve Blum, who also voiced the protagonist Garazeb Orrelios and many others in the series.[1]

In Season Four, Woldar's character model continued to be used to fill in several background Imperial officers. In "In the Name of the Rebellion", the model was used three different times for three unrelated characters,[4] including for Captain Wells.[5]
