Q&A: Who are the Jedi on the Phil Noto High Republic concept art?

Over on Twitter, Dan SWC asked about this incredible piece of art that was originally painted for Charles Soule’s pitch for Project Luminous.

For those who don’t know, I made it my mission to create characters based on all of those Jedi, introducing them into the various phases. Dan had a go at guessing who each of them became.

Let’s see how he did!

From left to right:

  • Orla Jareni
  • Ty Yorrick
  • Vildar Mac
  • Loden Greatstorm ❎ Originally, I based Estala Maru on this character, but when Charles created Loden as a Twi’lek for Light of the Jedi, I made Maru a Kessurian, as introduced in The Rise of Skywalker.

    (As an aside, I’ve always thought Phil’s Twi’lek Jedi looks a bit like Mark Hamill in make-up. That might just be me!)
  • Avar Kriss ❎ There was a character created from this design, but she hasn’t appeared so far.
  • Terec / Ceret ✅ Yup, that was the design I gave Ario for Terec and Ceret, the fact they were twins inspired by the identical Dathomirians next to them.
  • Sskeer ✅ The first character I created from this artwork.
  • Unknown / Porter Engle ❎ This character became the basis for the Yacombe as seen in the first issue of Star Wars: The High Republic volume 2.
