Airen Cracken was a male human who served as a general and intelligence chief in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War.


At some point after the Battle of Yavin, Cracken was already a member of the Rebel Alliance and served as the Head of Security and Intelligence, in addition to being a General. Confronted with the responsibility of rescuing three rebel spies in danger of capture by the Empire, he showed reluctance in recruiting smuggler Han Solo for the mission. However, he was convinced by Princess Leia Organa, citing the fact that they were running out of options and out of time.[3]

During the Battle of Endor, Cracken served aboard the Millennium Falcon with Lieutenant Blount.[4] The two were initially in the ship's cockpit with its pilot, General Lando Calrissian, co-pilot Nien Nunb and a navigator,[1] but they soon manned the ship's quad turrets and served as gunners.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

In Star Wars Legends continuity, the character of General Airen Cracken was created for the 1991 sourcebook Cracken's Rebel Field Guide,[5] and an unnamed Rebel aboard the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, played by Michael Stevens,[6] was later consolidated with that character.[7] Current Star Wars continuity has maintained the identity of General Cracken for that Rebel from Jedi.[4]
