I was playing LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga recently (don't judge me), and while doing the first level for A New Hope, there is a character you can play as named "Rebel Friend." He doesn't seem to be based on any existing character that I know of. My questions are who is he and where did he come from?

    I'm pretty sure he's just a generic Rebel soldier. It's nothing special. – Neithan Jun 25 '17 at 2:53

    You probably didn't recognize me with my red shirt – Celestialgranturismo Jun 25 '17 at 3:01

    Hey, it's probably the best of the LEGO games. – Donatello Swansino Jun 26 '17 at 3:20

I took that "Rebel Friend" to be the strikingly-blue-eyed rebel who features prominently in the first shipboard scenes of A New Hope. I don't have any basis for this, except that that guy feels like the first brief viewpoint character the movie has, even though he dies without having a single line (except his death yell). Although his appearance is brief, he was the first character in Star Wars that any audience could relate to.

    Fits perfectly, considering he's a Red Shirt as well. :P – Mario Jun 25 '17 at 6:29
  • you mean a rebel yell surely? – NKCampbell Feb 15 at 15:18
