~ Chirrut Îmwe


Chirrut Îmwe was a human male monk of the religious order known as the Guardians of the Whills on Jedha, a moon of the planet NaJedha, and partner of Baze Malbus. Unlike his partner, who retired from the order and became a mercenary after the fall of the Jedi Order and rise of the Galactic Empire, Chirrut remained faithful to the will of the Force and the Jedi way. In the year 0 BBY, he joined a special strike team of the Rebel Alliance led by Jyn Erso and Cassian Andor whose goal was to infiltrate an imperial base on the planet Scarif and retrieve the structural plans for the Death Star.
