Characters

Paige Tico is a minor yet influential character in the Star Wars universe, making her appearance in "Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi." Portrayed by Veronica Ngo, Paige originates from the mineral-rich world of Hays Minor in the Otomok system, where she lived with her younger sister, Rose Tico. Both were inspired to join the Resistance after their home was ravaged by the First Order.

Paige was a gunner in the Resistance and served on the StarFortress bomber Cobalt Hammer. She was part of the Cobalt Squadron, which played a significant role in the conflict with the First Order. Paige displays a commendable level of bravery and sacrifice, traits that are central to her character and the greater narrative of the Star Wars series.

Her most defining moment comes in the opening sequence of "The Last Jedi," during the evacuation of D’Qar. Despite the loss of most of the bomber fleet, Paige stays in the bombing bay of her ship to ensure the mission's completion. Showing immense courage, she successfully releases the bombs onto the First Order Dreadnought, but at the cost of her own life.

Paige uses a medallion of Haysian smelt, a native ore from their homeworld, which she shares with her sister, Rose, as a symbol of their bond. The death of Paige has a profound impact on Rose, empowering her in her fight against the First Order.

Despite her brief appearance, Paige's character left a lasting impression on Star Wars fans. Her bravery, dedication, and sacrifice embody the spirit of the Resistance and set the tone for the ongoing struggle against the First Order. She is an excellent demonstration of heroism and the great cost of war, reflecting the broader themes of the Star Wars narrative.
