Geek Of The Week: Vi Moradi

Geek Of The Week: Vi Moradi

Most geeks know Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and the rest of the classic Star Wars characters. A host of newer characters like Rey, Finn, and Poe were introduced in the sequel trilogies. However, there are a lot of other Star Wars characters who are less know but play an important role. Among them is this week’s geek, Vi Moradi.

Moradi was a spy for the Resistance who reported to General Leia Organa. She was instrumental in stealing a datacard from the First Order on the planet Batuu. It contained fleet movements which the Resistance used to battle the First Order and eventually win. Her exploits are detailed in the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge comic books. Additionally, you can see her character in live action at the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge theme parks at Disneyland and Walt Disney World.
