Everything I did, I did for the Rebellion.
―Cassian Andor[src]

Captain Cassian Jeron Andor, born Kassa, is the deuteragonist in the Star Wars anthology solo film Rogue One, and the titular protagonist of the Disney+ series Andor.

Background[]

During the Empire's reign of tyranny, Cassian served in the Rebel Alliance against the Galactic Empire as a veteran spy. He maintained a network of contacts throughout the galaxy who kept him up to date on the Empire's activities. Sometime during his career, Cassian was stationed at the Rebel base on Yavin 4 when Jyn Erso was assigned by Mon Mothma to take part in the theft of the Death Star plans. During the mission, Cassian was assigned to keep an eye on Jyn due to her reckless and potentially volatile nature. He is an accomplished Alliance Intelligence officer, well as a rebel captain with combat field experience, who commands respect from his Rebel troops with his ability to keep a cool head under fire and complete his missions with minimal resources.

Personality[]

Cassian is a committed, steady and practical by-the-book intelligence officer with a fair amount of combat experience. He often keeps quiet and reserved, a trait he has acquired due to his experience in war.

Due to years of fighting in the Galactic Civil War, he had been hardened by the war to the point that he almost did not hesitate to commit morally questionable acts when necessary, however, Cassian still feel some degree of remorse and regret after some of this events, for example, when he had to execute Tivik during the mission to Kafrene.

Despite being hardened by the war, Cassian still has a sense of justice, honor and good morals. For example, when he was ordered by the immoral rebel general Davits Draven to kill Galen Erso so that the Empire could not complete the Death Star, Cassian could not go through with killing Galen when he had the opportunity, partly because it was not a direct order from the Alliance Council, and mainly because it went against his morals, as he knew full well that Galen was not wittingly helping the Empire, as well as the fact that the latter was innocent individual who didn't deserve to die.

Abilities[]

  • Expert Hand-To-Hand Combatant: Cassian is extremely skilled in unarmed combat.
  • Expert Marksman: Cassian is extremely skilled in utilizing various blasters ranging from blaster pistols to blaster rifles.

Weapons and Equipment[]

Blasters[]

  • MW-20 Bryar pistol: Cassian utilizes a MW-20 Bryar Pistol before joining the Rebel Alliance. This blaster belonged to his adoptive father Clem Andor.
  • B1-NA blaster pistol: Cassian stole a B1-NA blaster pistol from Syril Karn. He kelp this blaster as a backup but later gave it to Ruescott Melshi.
  • A280-CFE convertible heavy blaster pistol: Cassian utilizes a A280-CFE convertible heavy blaster pistol as his weapon of choice. Cassian's blaster pistol can be reconfigured into an assault rifle or a sniper rifle by adding both a barrel and stock attachments.
  • A-180 blaster: Cassian had an A-180 blaster in pistol configuration. Jyn Erso "found" it in his backpack and used it as her weapon of choice.
  • Unknown compact blaster: Cassian utilizes an unknown compact pistol as his second weapon of choice.

History[]

The Rebellion[]

Rogue One[]

Cassian appears on the Ring of Kafrene, receiving a message of a defector from the Empire from Tivik, an informant. He is forced to shoot the spy after he attacks a Stormtrooper patrol investigating the fuss, and escapes.

Cassian is later seen on Yavin 4, where he helps to recruit Jyn Erso, informing her of the message that her father Galen had sent. They travel to Jedha to seek out Saw Gerrera, who was a good friend of Galen and might have more information about the Death Star plans. After they are kidnapped by Saw's rebels after an encounter with Stormtroopers, he manages to find the defecting pilot whilst in prison. He escapes with K-2SO, Jyn, Chirrut, Baze, and Bodhi as Jedha City is destroyed by the Death Star superlaser.

They travel to Eadu to seek out Galen, where he seeks to complete his mission to assassinate him. He decided not to pull the trigger, and rescues Jyn as the Imperial refinery is attacked by Rebel fighters. Jyn criticizes him for his intention to kill her father, which he refutes as he did not shoot him and was only following orders.

After Jyn's failure to sway the Rebellion to help them, Cassian shows his support for her and recruits the remainder of Saw's rebels. They travel to Scarif, where he, Jyn, and K-2SO disguise themselves and head to the data vault as the others distract the Empire. Jyn obtains the tape for the Death Star plans, but Director Krennic's arrival results in a shootout, where he is shot.

He is later shown to be alive, saving Jyn by shooting Krennic. Succeeding on their mission, he and Jyn embrace each other while they watch on the shoreline as Scarif is destroyed by the Death Star superlaser, killing them both.[1]
