“There isn’t much time. Every day, we grow weaker. While the day grows grimmer, we still have a chance … to make a real difference.” - Jyn Erso
Jyn Erso was a female member of the Rebel Alliance around the time of the Battle of Yavin. She was assigned with a team of Rebels to steal the plans of the Death Star. At some point during this mission she served as a Sergeant.
Jyn Erso was born to Galen and Lyra Erso on the planet of Vallt while in captivity and would be present for one of her father's meetings with Director Orson Krennic on Coruscant. She joined Saw Gerrera's Partisans at age eight and fought with them until fifteen years of age when Saw abandoned her during a dangerous setback. She had issues with trust from that day. Having been arrested for her crimes by the Galactic Empire and placed on the planet of Wobani in a prison cell a team from the Alliance to Restore the Republic called the Extraction team bravo rescued her from the prison due to her father's possible involvement in the construction of the Imperial Superweapon known as the Death Star.
Jyn was placed on a mission with Captain Cassian Andor to find and steal the Death Star plans for the rebels and was promoted to Sergeant. They lead the squad to a few planets including Jedha and then later to Scarif where they manage to beam up the Death Star plans before they are killed along with Director Krennic by the Death Star on Grand Moff Tarkin's orders.
