With now ten, feature-length, live-action films to pick from, it’s easy to make a list of the top characters in Star Wars. But what about characters that have never appeared on film? Granted, Disney removed the Expanded Universe from canon when it acquired Lucasfilm six years ago.

5. Iden Versio
Iden Versio was an elite pilot in the Imperial Navy before commanding Inferno Squad. Going undercover as an Imperial traitor, however, led to life imitating her art. Versio, seeing her squad-mate’s sadism and the Empire’s evil first hand, does indeed defect to the Rebellion. She is one of few characters to serve significant roles with both the Empire and the Rebellion. Nevertheless, we only get to see her in one novel and through one video game narrative. She was a character wasted.
