You might say that Ty Yorrick looks strong enough to pull the ears off a gundark.
In the first original graphic novel from the era of Star Wars: The High Republic, the Force-sensitive monster hunter takes the spotlight in Star Wars: The High Republic: The Monster of Temple Peak written by Cavan Scott with art by Rachael Stott. Today, StarWars.com is thrilled to announce that The Monster of Temple Peak will be released in four epic monthly installments from IDW beginning in August of 2021, and reveal the first glimpse at what’s to come.
But who exactly is this lightsaber-wielding Tholothian? A brand-new character short, which you can watch below, explores her backstory in more detail.
“Ty Yorrick is a character I’ve wanted to introduce to Star Wars for a long time,” Scott tells StarWars.com, “and The High Republic has provided the perfect opportunity. A monster hunter and mercenary, Ty is a mystery to just about every one who meets her. She has created quite the reputation for herself and is known on many worlds only by the title ‘saber-for-hire.’”
