In the preview, there are three characters pictured:

1) Onar Koma, Furious Bodyguard, an Aqualish

2) Vinto Hreeda, Reckless Vigilante, a Rodian

3) Not named, but appears to be wearing Mandalorain armor

For those of us who follow Star Wars Rebels, why didn't they just make the mandalorian Sabine Wren? If they introduced the grand Inquisitor, why not some rebels from the series?

I don't know what his time period is in the game but the new rebel character would have to be 3-7.

None of the established Star Wars characters have been playable heroes or campaign 'bosses'. (It remains to be seen how Jabba fits into this.)

Established characters need to fit the Star Wars canon, thus what FFG can do with them is very limited, and very strictly controlled by LFL/Disney. What FFG comes up may not fit what LFL has in mind, so each character (including their mission) may need a few iterations to be approved. 'Made-up' heroes only need to fit the universe and the overall framework and should be much easier to get approval for.

This would be a good question for a designer interview.

(The newest figure expansions don't specify or enforce time periods anymore and leave it to the players to decide which characters to use in their campaigns.)

Heroes do not have time periods, they need to be usable in all campaigns.

With the introduction of Luke Skywalker Jedi Knight the whole time frame is off. So maybe it'll be expansion some day with rebels characters.

Do you think you'll be able to play young Luke and Jedi Knight at the same time? In case you shuffle the side scenarios into your quest deck or skirmish mode?

Definitely not. The "subname" is not part of the name, that is "Luke Skywalker, hero of the rebellion" and "Luke Skywalker, Jedi knight" are both "Luke Skywalker" and RRG, p25, "Unique" tells us that only one (per player, in Skirmish) card of each name is allowed, whatever the subname.

They might be, in the future, but I believe they would be Allies, not Heroes
