Star Wars has already revealed the first look at five of The High Republic characters, namely Ava Kriss, Loden Greatstorm, Keeve Trennis, Stellan Gios, and Vernestra "Vern" Rwoh. Now, a new Jedi Master has been introduced, and while he doesn't quite fit the mold, he's "very, very fun."

The official Star Wars website introduces fans to Sskeer, a tough Jedi master. "Sskeer plays a major role in the Marvel Comics ongoing and is an absolute joy to write," says Cavan Scott, one of the writers behind The High Republic. "He's a gruff, opinionated Trandoshan who has been around the block more times than he cares to remember."

Sskeer is "loyal" but "brutally honest." Rest assured that he'll tell you exactly what's on his mind, well, that's what Avar Kriss and the other Jedi Knights think. Sskeer is revealed to have a secret that's "tearing him apart," making the character a mysterious and essential to the series.

Aside from the details about the character, concept art for Sskeer has also been released, showing the Jedi Master in his cool mission attire. You can check it out below!
