Sana Starros is a very popular character in the comics, who first appeared in Star Wars #4, and two issues later identified herself as Sana Solo, Han Solo’s wife. She appeared in a lot of issues of the Star Wars comic series initiated in 2015, as well as in several issues of both the first Doctor Aphra series, and the new one too. She also makes an appearance in Daniel José Older’s Last Shot. The character was first introduced as a human female going after Han Solo in the classic woman-on-a-mission style. Once she found him, he joined Solo, Leia, and Chewbacca for a bit.
