It was only last week when we first wrote about the different connections Star Wars Battlefront II (SWBFII) shares with Star Wars Rebels. As you might remember, the “Rebels” TV series aired its finale on Monday. We thought it would appropriate to take a better look at all the different elements that appeared in both game and series. The list was not complete, but recently a new series of comics increased the number of connections.
Star Wars Adventures
The Star Wars Adventures comic book series published its 7th issue on March 7. The comic book covers the adventures of the heroes from the TV series such as Ezra Bridger, Kanan Jarrus. The timing of this release isn’t coincidental since as mentioned Rebels ended last week. We’re more than certain that the series’ finale left a lot of fans with wanting for more stories focusing on this particular Star Wars timeline. In some ways, comic books are there to fill in that gap.
When Shriv Suurgav met the “Rebels”
One of the most beloved characters of SWBFII’s single-player campaign is Shriv Suurgav. Along with Janina Gavankar’s Iden, TJ Rimini’s Del Meeko and Anthony Skordi’s Garrick Versio, Dan Donohue’s Shriv portrayal became an unexpected hit with fans. His sarcastic comments during difficult situations throughout the campaign certainly caught the attention of a lot of people.
In the rare occasion that you haven’t played the game’s single-player campaign, Shriv is a Duros officer. He fights for the Rebel Alliance and participates in many critical battles. Some of them include the Defense of Naboo, the liberation of Sullust and the Battle of Jakku.
During the recent release of Star Wars Adventures, fans noticed a pretty familiar character making his appearance in the comic book. This was also confirmed by one of the creators of Shriv, writer Mitch Dyer, and pointed out in a relevant tweet. The picture below is from the writer’s tweet and portrays Shriv in an intense situation. Apparently, during the story, SWBFII’s hero teams up with Nien Numb. No more details have been released. It’s certainly an interesting way to embed SWBFII’s single-player campaign furthermore with the official Star Wars official canon.
