The Star Wars universe that we all know and love continues to expand as the franchise continues to grow each day with new movies, cartoons, comics etc. That expansion has proved to be challenging as the structure of the Rebel Legion was not necessarily built with this in mind. It has caused challenges with placing costumes in detachments and/or allowing certain costumes within the Legion.

Several members took it upon themselves to present to Legion Council a proposal for a new detachment to help find a better home for costumes and characters that fall under defectors and disguises. Legion Council voted and approved the new detachment.

Below is additional information about the detachment and currently the LMO team and judges will start accepting costume applications for the detachment.

Name: Rogue Detachment
Costume Category: Rebel Supporters
DCO: Jen Markham
DXO: Anastasia Valdez

Defector Definition

A Defector is a "villain" character who switches sides and becomes a rebel.

A defector is a character who was formerly a "villain" who has changed sides to join the heroes, but who is still wearing a costume with mostly Imperial/First Order/villain-style pieces.


  • The character must clearly be a hero and (such as Bodhi Rook) despite their attire.
  • The character must clearly be affiliated with the Rebels/Resistance/Heroes while wearing this outfit
  • The character cannot be a "secret" defector or one who has not publicly declared their new allegiance (no Agent Kallus before he leaves the Empire, etc.)
  • The costume MUST have at least one change from the "standard" uniform (ex: Juno Eclipse wears her jacket open, Bodhi wears a vest on top of his flightsuit, etc.)


Disguise Definition

A Disguise is a Rebel/hero wearing attire seen as or labeled as "villain".

A disguise costume is defined as:

  • consisting of a majority of Imperial, First Order or other "villain" elements ie; Mandalorian armor etc
  • It is preferable that a costume have at least two distinctive costume characteristics setting it apart from its imperial counterparts. The LMO has final authority on if a costume has enough variation from its imperial counterparts to be accepted into the detachment and the Rebel Legion.
  • The distinctive characteristics present the costume as a hero character and not as a generic bad guy.


Costumes Currently Accepted:

Jyn Erso in Imperial Ground Crew disguise
Obi-Wan in Mandalorian armor
Chewbacca in Snoova disguise
Bodhi Rook
Juno Eclipse
Alexandr Kallus/Fulcrum
Galen Erso
Tamtel Skreej (Lando)
Asohka Tano (Slave costume)

Detachment forum coming soon under Rebel Supporters category.

Important Note:

Not all disguise or defector costumes will be allowed in the detachment or allowed in the Rebel Legion. There are certain disguise and defector costumes that have no obvious unique differences to that of the "villain" counterpart to identify the costume as a hero costume. Costume acceptance is at the discretion of the LMO team. In addition, because I know it will come up, Han and Luke in TK will not fall under this detachment nor will they be considered an approvable costumes in the RL at this time.

Is it possible that I could request Ezra Bridger's Imperial Cadet disguise from the season 1 episode of Star Wars Rebels: "Rebel In the Ranks" (where he went under the alias of "Dev Morgan") to be potentially added to this list? Thank you for your consideration!

Thank you Blair for pushing us to the finish line! Myself, Anya and Natalie are so excited and honored to be leading this new detachment and we thank everyone for their kind, positive comments. More costumes in the legion is always great news!

To answer a few questions:

If you already have an approved costume and want to join the new detachment, fantastic! We can’t wait for you to join us! Once we get our own section of the forum operational there will be a thread where you can sign up.

Some costumes — like Obi Wan’s disguise — can be dual detachment as long as the other detachment agrees and I am pleased to report the KJO supports this! Obi Wan in Mando will be primarily a Rogue detachment costume with the KJO as a secondary detachment.

If you are interested in a disguise costume not on the list above, you need to message Blair about it as that is an LMO team decision.

Lastly, please bear with all of us as we get things going. As Blair said this is the first time in many years the RL has formed a new detachment so there are bound to be some minor bumps in the road here and there. But again, more legion costumes is only great news!

Couldn't have said it better myself, Jen. Very Happy

Thank you one and all for helping to get the detachment to this point. Excited is definitely an understatement for many of us this Monday morning.

Hello jen0farc!

Congratulations on the new Detachment. It is part of the great growth The Rebel Legion is having in recent years.

The KJO Detachment supports the idea of the Secondary Detachment, especially for cases such as Obi Wan Mandalor Version, or also Ahsoka Tano - Slave Version. We accept without problems (as a secondary detachment) those legionaries who perform these two costumes, now being the main Detachment, Rogue Detachment.

May the Force be with you!
