ROSE TICO WORKING FOR THE GOOD GUYS
Like her sister Paige, Rose Tico has harbored a simmering hatred for the First Order ever since she was a child. Now she finally has the chance to fight back.
Raised by their parents Hue and Thanya in the Otomok system, Rose Tico and her older sister Paige grew up in the peaceful mining colony of Hays Minor. The girls dreamed of leaving their home and traveling the galaxy, of experiencing its myriad marvels…until the First Order arrived and crushed those dreams. Unbeknownst to the Galactic Republic, the nefarious military organization began razing the cities of Otomok to test their armaments. They abducted the planet’s children for recruitment purposes and left the survivors nothing to live for—except perhaps their burning hatred of the First Order.
Wearing twin medallions adorned with the symbol of the Otomok system, Paige and Rose joined the Resistance cause—the former serving as a ventral gunner aboard a bomber, the latter as a member of the support crew. A talented mechanic, Rose developed a system that makes the Resistance’s spacecraft harder for enemy sensors to detect. After the evacuation of D’Qar, she guards the Raddus’ escape pods from anyone who tries to flee. Even before they meet him, the Tico sisters know of Finn’s story. To them, his actions proved that he is a real hero—one who knew right from wrong, and who didn’t simply run away when he had the chance.
When they realize the First Order has the ability to track the Resistance fleet through hyperspace, Finn and Rose devise a plan to sneak aboard the enemy’s flagship and disable the tracker. In order to accomplish this, they need a codebreaker. The only place they can locate one is the casino city of Canto Bight on Cantonica: a dangerous planet populated by war profiteers and criminals…
