Jyn Erso is a character in the Star Wars universe, first seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Jyn is a main character in the movie. The Alliance wants her to help them find her father, Galen Erso and stop the super weapon he helped build. At the beginning of the movie we briefly see Jyn’s mother Lyra Erso, and in the middle we meet another father figure of hers, Saw Gerrera. The Alliance break her out of prison and her and Cassian Andor go on a search for Saw, meeting Bodhi Rook, Chirrut Îmwe, and Baze Malbus on the way.
This is a prequel novel to Rogue One, when Jyn was in Saw’s group the Partisans.
