A droid you may see appear on holoscreens, D3-O9’s primary function is running ship logistics, so you can bet that she knows everyone and everything happening onboard during any given voyage.

More of a stowaway than a real mechanic, Sammie hails from Han Solo’s home world of Corellia where he learned the basics of working a hydrospanner. What he lacks in skill he makes up for in charm and enthusiasm, convincing passengers and other crewmates to help when the Chandrila Star Line’s jewel needs a tune up. Plus, he speaks Shyriiwook, which could come in handy if a Wookiee happens to find his way onboard.

His suspicions stoked by a pattern of strange activity — everywhere the Halcyon docks, the First Order spies a spark of resistance — Croy will stop at nothing to complete his investigation and hold Keevan and everyone else in his sights responsible for the civil disobedience. Ambitious and intimidating, Croy’s special assignment makes him a person of interest whether you’re a rebel sympathizer, a rigid proponent of First Order rule, or a simple traveler making their way in a galaxy at war.
