WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Star Wars: Visions' Season 1, streaming now on Disney+.
In Star Wars: Visions, there are many new characters introduced to the mythos, albeit out of continuity as the anime-inspired series stitches together diverse stories. We see a vast array of Jedi, Sith and warriors in between, as well as rebels fighting off different takes on the Empire to show the disarray engulfing the galaxy. With that in mind, let's dissect the 10 best characters from Season 1.
Geezer the Hutt, Star Waver's Bassist
Geezer's in "Tatooine Rhapsody" and while no one would ever consider a Hutt altruistic, he's the total opposite. He displays a lot of soul as he's taken in by Boba Fett for not joining Jabba's gang. He's emo, punk and totally believes in freedom, not to mention his speech to heal Jay, a young Padawan who barely escaped Order 66, best sums up how the band is about family. Granted, he's got a flame-thrower, a lot of spunk and is great on the bass, but it's this show of heart that really wins.
F, the Wandering Jedi
In "The Village Bride," F is a roaming Jedi on a mysterious planet in the Outer Rim years after the purge. When separatists withdraw, their tech's repurposed by villains who try to claim a village chief, only for the man's granddaughter to offer herself as tribute.
F, though, has other things in mind as she harnesses the Force, stops the villains from executing rebels and slices the boss down. With her rocket boots and overall badass attitude, F, who doesn't say much, comes off as a deadly liberator and Jedi vigilante.
Tajin, the Master Jedi
In "The Elder," Tajin cuts a Qui-Gon Jinn-like figure as he and his Padawan, Dan, investigate a disturbance on a planet. Dan discovers an old killer in the mountains who left the Sith Order before it fell apart. He gets sliced up by the villain, but Tajin, who can sense things from miles away, arrives to save him.
His stoic nature and overall experience allow him to absorb Sith lightning, slicing one of the Elder's red blades up before impaling him with his lightsaber. What equally impresses is how Tajin ensures that they pay respects to the locals and the remains of their enemy.
The Sinister Bandit Leader With the Ultimate Sith Weapon
In Star Wars: Visions' opening episode, "The Duel," Ronin comes across a feudal village where the Bandit Leader's gang is terrorizing the citizens. They want their tributes or else man, woman and child will be slaughtered. While villagers disguised themselves and ambush the villains via machine guns, Bandit Leader emerges with her umbrella lightsaber. She uses it to impale multiple opponents, cutting them to pieces like Mortal Kombat, while moving swiftly and gloating like a more sinister version of Darth Maul and Asajj Ventress.
Karre, the Rogue Sith Who Takes on His Twin
Karre and his twin sister, Am, have been cloned into Sith warlords in "The Twins." With their Darth Vader-esque armor, they're to channel kyber crystal energy to turn their Destroyer into a Death Star, but Karre steals the gem and breaks out. He fights his sister, not wanting to be a Dark Side pawn. It's refreshing to see someone understanding these villains aren't worth it, plus his prowess with his own lightsaber and how he brings the vessel down with the Admiral Holdo move proves he's an astute tactician.
Tsubaki, the Broken Jedi Wrestling With the Dark Side
In the finale, "Akakiri," there's a Jedi suffering PTSD by the name of Tsubaki. He reunites with his beloved Misa to free her royal court from her Sith aunt, Misago, but in the process, he gets duped. Tsubaki has been having visions of killing people, wrestling with the Dark Side, akin to Anakin Skywalker, and while he slaughters Misago's soldiers, he accidentally kills Misa. However, the villain brokers a deal and heals her, with Tsubaki becoming her apprentice to give us a Palpatine-like story about manipulation, control and love.
Lop, the Rabbit Rebel
Lop's a rabbit and runaway slave who joins Yasaburo and his daughter, Ochō, on Tau. Yasaburo's trying to wage war on the Empire who's taken control, however, he's broken when Ochō betrays them, thinking Yasaburo's a terrorist. It leads to Lop taking the family's lightsaber and fighting her 'sister,' akin to Obi-Wan and Ani. It's all about legacy and misguided morals, with Lop proving to be as swift as Yoda and talented as Ani with the blade, branding Ochō and creating a vendetta that now has Ochō wanting her head and Sith power.
Ronin Collects His Sith Victims' Kyber Crystals
Ronin makes the cut because he's just that: a wanderer who doesn't speak much, but lets his lightsaber do the talking. More so, he's not a Jedi or a Sith, coming off like an assassin with his yellow lightsaber. In addition to a droid that acts as a WMD, he's a brilliant strategist, luring the Bandit Leader in and fighting her on a log going over a waterfall. He uses a temple to distract and impale her, proving he can adapt quickly to his surroundings, like a true sage. More so, when he leaves a kyber crystal for a kid, he has a lot more, proving Sith-slaying is a pastime he enjoys.
Kara: the New 'Rey' and a New Hope
Kara adopts a similar figure to Rey in "The Ninth Jedi" as she helps her dad, Zhima, a lightsabersmith. She's a junker as well, uses a racer and also has access to the Force, although she's not an expert. However, as she loses her dad to Sith soldiers and delivers some weapons for Jedi, Kara goes into war-mode as most of them are undercover Sith.
She levels up, using her acrobatics to kick butt, while turning her lightsaber from brown to green as she unleashes more of the Force. It's an emotive story of tragedy and adversity as she helps save the remaining Jedi, with Juro becoming her Luke and forming a new order with her as the new hope.
T0-B1, the Cybernetic Boy with Jedi Knight Dreams
In "T0-B1," we get the most wholesome character in the series as he's a bot created, along the lines of A.I., who dreams of being a Jedi. Sadly, he's alone in the world, apart from his builder, Mitaka, a genius scientist who doesn't want him following the Light. Unfortunately, the bot accidentally brings an Inquisitor down who slays his mentor, but by the time the tyrant returns, T0-B1's terraformed the planet.
He builds his lightsaber after harnessing the kyber crystal hidden inside as well, before using his robotics to slay the villain in the most epic fashion. The way he heads off, full of hope and resilience, to liberate the rest of the galaxy is very similar to Luke Skywalker, adding immense humanity to his binary mainframe.
