Leia and Cracken HS1

Leia Organa and Cracken.

By the time of the Battle of Scarif, Cracken was already a General in the Rebel Alliance and served as the Chief of Rebel Intelligence.[3] Cracken was personally involved in setting up spy networks throughout the Outer Rim, so Rebel Intelligence was represented on the rebel council by one of his trusted field operatives, General Davits Draven.[4] Despite his absence, he still compiled a dossier regarding Operation Fracture at Mon Mothma's request.[3]

Sometime after the Battle of Yavin, while serving in his capacity of Head of Security and Intelligence and confronted with the responsibility of rescuing three rebel spies in danger of capture by the Empire, Cracken 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.[5]

During the Battle of Endor, Cracken served aboard the Millennium Falcon with Lieutenant Blount.[6] 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.[6]

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,[7] and an unnamed Rebel aboard the Millennium Falcon in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi, played by Michael Stevens,[8] was later consolidated with that character.[9] Current Star Wars continuity has maintained the identity of General Cracken for that Rebel from Jedi.[6]
