Lords of the Sith, the latest Star Wars novel, written by Paul S Kemp, includes the series' first lesbian character, Moff Mors.
The action takes place between Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and Tarkin.
The author Paul S Kemp said the character Moff Mors, "is an Imperial who has made some very serious mistakes but she is an incredibly capable leader and spends much of the book working hard to prevent absolute failure. She also happens to be a lesbian."
