- "When at last they came to the castle, they walked under the big gate and went inside. In front of them they saw the stairway leading down into the ground. It was the fabled Octave Stairway Brin and his friends had been searching for."
- ―An excerpt from the holo
The Octave Stairway was a children's holodrama. It recounted the adventures of Brin who, along with his friends, sought to return to his home by ascending the fabled Octave Stairway. When Jyn Erso was a child, The Octave Stairway was her favorite bedtime holo, and she once drew a picture of Brin trying to get home, using her father's likeness to depict the hero.
