Synopsis: Where did Hethrir die? Or what species is Garindan? These questions and many more are answered in this great encyclopedia of characters. The Essential Guide to Characters was written to enhance the readers knowledge of trivial information about the inhabitants of the Star Wars Galaxy such as Tenel Ka, Prince Isolder, Davin Felth and many more.

Review: This Essential Guide gives you all the trivia you will ever need about the humans, aliens, droids and other sentient species that inhabit this galaxy far, far away. Each character is introduced with his/her/its species, sex, hair and eye color, height, home world, political affiliation, weapon and vehicle of choice and first appearance. For the characters that are no more, it gives the book/place/event where they died.

On top of the superb writing, the wonderful illustrations and well placed screen shots make the characters' past come alive to the reader. The only problem with this almost perfect reference book is the omitting of favorites like Dash Rendar and Kyle Katarn.

In conclusion, the Essential Guide to Characters is the perfect book for someone looking to go past the movies and into the Star Wars Universe headlong for in-depth personal information.
