 This came up early on when it was first revealed that Howlrunner would be one of the pilots. However, I've seen many posts on this forum lately that refer to Howlrunner as "he," so I wanted to set the record straight that Howlrunner was indeed a female Imperial pilot.

Just adds more fluff and flavor to the game. Thanks for the research!

 Hoping for a Mara Jade card if they do the Z-95.

Yep! I was looking up all the TIE pilots to see if they were all canon pilots and found out about Howlrunner as well.

Amazing how much backstory a character can get in the EU for just having her TIE fly by the screen once in one of the movies.

With Howlrunner being a girl, maybe my daughter will pick up the reins of the Imps.

 Is it not strange that the faction that is depicted in the fiction as being anti-alien and anti-women's equality has the only in game woman pilot?

 

Perhaps the rebels have thier own gender issues to work through?

Are they anti-women? I'm semi-familiar with the EU, but never ran across that particular tidbit.

I did, in fact, laugh out loud at this.

LoTR LCG crossover?
