Day 36 – Delian Mors

Delian Mors

Delian Mors was the Imperial Moff of the planet Ryloth. She appeared in Paul S. Kemp’s novel Lords of the Sith which focused on Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine’s activities between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and in the short story “Mercy Mission” by Melissa Scott.

Delian Mors was the first LGBT character introduced in Star Wars canon. Her character is also one of the few female Star Wars characters I can think of that are described as being heavy (there’s a lot of skinny women in Star Wars).

Here’s an interesting look at Delian Mor’s introduction in Lords of the Sith from Shoshana at Tosche Station. You can also read a review of the book over at Den of Geek from Megan Crouse.

“Mercy Mission” was one of three short stories in Rise of the Empire, a bind-up compilation of Tarkin and A New Dawn.
