Captain Phasma

Phasma was, first and foremost, a survivalist. She would stop at nothing to preserve her own life -- even if it meant endangering the lives of and abandoning those who had remained loyal to her and her cause.

Born and forced to learn to survive on the dangerous backwater planet of Parnassos, Phasma’s first encounter with the First Order was by accident. But shortly after learning of their existence, she was determined to escape her homeworld and join them in exchange for helping Brendol Hux and his men off of it.

Once appointed a captain of the regime, Phasma suited up in her armor, fastened her cape, and became one of the most ruthless officers in command of the First Order’s army of stormtroopers.

There is much we still don’t know about who she really was. But with every new story focusing on her legacy, we gain a little more insight into how and why she became such a feared force of darkness in the galaxy.

Captain Phasma is one of those characters who first appeared in a Star Wars movie but benefits tremendously from material published in the Expanded Universe outside the films. Her story extends far beyond the first two sequel trilogy movies, and she’s definitely a villain you won’t want to forget.

If the mysterious backstory of Phasma has you curious about where she (and her chrome armor) came from, these stories are definitely worth adding to your reading list.

Phasma

Delilah S. Dawson
28 - 33 ABY

The Force Awakens introduced Star Wars fans to a new kind of villain -- a female stormstrooper commanding her troops behind reflective chrome armor. Through the end of the film, Captain Phasma remained mostly a mystery. Who was she? Where did she come from? And why did she look different than all the other stormtroopers?


Delilah S. Dawson managed to answer all of our burning questions about this antagonist in her adult novel, Phasma. Throughout the book, readers learn the ruthless extremes the character takes in order to survive, and how she finds herself among the high ranks of the First Order, despite never having heard of them before.

Captain Phasma

Kelly Thompson
34 ABY

While she doesn’t get nearly as much screen time as other prominent Star Wars villains, Captain Phasma’s story is one worth remembering. Her adventures between The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi were long unknown … until now.

This five-issue miniseries explains not only how Phasma survived the destruction of Starkiller Base, but the lengths she went after that to make sure no one would ever find out she had allowed a group of Resistance fighters to destroy it from the inside out.

Age Of Resistance: Captain Phasma

Tom Taylor
33 ABY

Within the First Order, Captain Phasma is considered a leader worth following. Within the mass of stormtroopers she commands, there is at least one admirer who wants nothing more than to follow in her footsteps. But Phasma wants to make one thing clear: There is no one else like her, and never will be. There can only ever be one warrior in shining armor.

Part of Marvel’s Age of Resistance series of one-shots, this issue takes readers deeper into the truly evil nature of one of the sequel trilogy’s most underrated villains.
