The rebel archaeologist from Star Wars can find any priceless artifact. The problem is, Dr. Aphra is very likely to keep it for her.
Star Wars It is a franchise like no other. Spanning decades of movies, games, comics, and more, it’s a world filled with rich history, vibrant characters, epic space battles, and of course a certain energy field known as the Force. But not all Star Wars characters are the same. Some are tough criminals with a deep past of misdeeds looking for their next chance to make big profits, some are reluctant heroes patiently waiting for the perfect time to do good, and some are simply ordinary people wrapped up in a story that is bigger than themselves with no hope of escaping the giant tractor beam they call life.

After Vader’s failed attempt to silence Aphra at the end of her solo series, Aphra reappeared in her own 2016 book, Doctor Aphra, where their mission was simply to survive.

Struggling to make ends meet with his day job stealing priceless artifacts, selling them to the highest bidder, and then sometimes stealing said artifacts for fun.
