What does this writing on Poe Dameron's helmet say?

side of Poe Dameron's helmet

1 Answer 1


It spells "Roæhal" which may be a signature of Senior Prop Modeller Roy Halfpenny. Thanks to Valorum for pointing this out.

I haven't been able to find any clean images of the actual prop from the movies that show the lettering in full, but the official Disney/Hasbro replica shows this: Poe Dameron replica helmet box

I found an unboxing video that has a better view of the text: Text on replica helmet

According to the Aurebesh alphabet: Star Wars Aurebesh alphabet

It spells "Roæhal."

  • One Reddit user (probably misguidedly) hypothesized that the text is meant to be "RO & HAL," which would presumably be the initials of a concept artist and a significant other. A quick search of TFA's cast didn't turn up anyone who fit that bill. Commented Apr 21, 2019 at 2:06

  • @Valorum Not that I'm saying you're wrong, but why use Enth instead of Yirt?

  • @DavidW - To make it look more "space-y", probably. I'm planning to make this into a separate answer, but I'd honestly prefer if you added this info into your own.
