Admiral Raddus


Admiral Raddus was a character from the Star Wars universe. He hailed from the aquatic planet of Mon Cala, also the home of another acclaimed character Admiral Ackbar. Raddus was a prominent figure in the movie "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", where he served as a high-ranking member of the Rebel Alliance during the Galactic Civil War. He was characterized by his brash demeanor, strategic acumen, and unyielding resilience towards the mission of the Rebel Alliance.

Raddus was the best kind of rebel, fervently courageous, unyielding, often manning the front-line himself, and inspiring leadership in those around him. Despite his masterful leadership and range of victorious endeavours, he was widely known for his daring attitude and risk-taking strategies. His most notable traits involved embracing perilous risks if it meant delivering a crushing blow to the Galactic Empire.

Beyond his impressive military tactics and leadership skills, Raddus played an instrumental role in obtaining the Death Star's blueprints, an event that was critical to the plot progression in "Rogue One". He commanded the fleet that fought the space battle above the planet Scarif to distract the Imperial fleet and to buy time for Jyn Erso and her crew so they could steal the Death Star Plans.

In terms of personal attributes, he was distinctively patriotic and possessed solid loyalty towards his home planet Mon Cala. After witnessing the increasing threats and brutal actions of the Galactic Empire, he willingly decided to stand against their oppression and committed to protecting his people and fighting for their freedom.

However, after the events of Rogue One, Admiral Raddus's fate is left uncertain. It's implied that he was either captured or killed by Darth Vader. Nevertheless, his bold decisions and selfless acts of bravery played a pivotal role in kickstarting the major events that led to the strategic victory of the Rebel Alliance.

In terms of physical appearance, the Mon Calamari admiral was designed with a rough texture and a bluish-gray complexion. He was further distinct with his bulbous protruding eyes and webbed hands which are typical characteristics of the Mon Calamari species.
