Characters I Hold Dear: Non Force Sensitive: Admiral Ackbar

In the world of Star Wars there are characters that can use the force and then there are those that can not. While they may be aware of the force they simply just lack the ability to wield it, or they do not want to. These characters make up a good portion of the Star Wars galaxy but often times they are not the ones we think of when we hear the words “Star Wars”. These characters make great additions to the story and they give it a good dynamic. If everyone was force sensitive then the galaxy would not be balanced in my opinion.

My favorite of these characters is the infamous Admiral Ackbar. His first appearance in the films was in my favorite film Return of the Jedi. He became a stronger favorite after The Clone Wars cartoon decided to use him in a story arc.

I love his character because of this strength and sound resolve. He fights for the good of everyone and there is not a selfish bone in his body. He understands his duties and he executes them with ease. His most famous line “it’s a trap” resonates with all Star Wars fans…although I am not sure why. I also love how fearless he is. It is truly an inspiration to all.
