James Floyd chats with author Delilah S Dawson and her freshly released novel Phasma over at the official site.
Ever since the first photos of Captain Phasma appeared while Star Wars: The Force Awakens was being filmed, fans have been clamoring for more on this mysterious character — and we know she’ll be back in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And now, with Force Friday II launching the Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedipublishing program, we get a great story bringing together so much of Phasma’s background: who she is, how she ended up in the First Order, and how she rose to be elite among the First Order’s stormtroopers. Written by Delilah S. Dawson and published by Del Rey, Phasma comes out today. No stranger to writing Star Wars in this timeframe, Dawson previously wrote The Perfect Weapon, an ebook short story featuring the mercenary Bazine Netal, shortly before her appearance in Maz Kanata’s castle in The Force Awakens. StarWars.com conversed via e-mail with Dawson to go under the caped captain’s chrome dome and learn what it takes to walk in her armor.
