New video, new dude, Agent Kallus...
He's an Imperial Security Bureau Agent/Officer. He hunts Rebel flare-ups down, and puts ointment on them.
I feel like Filloni wanted to say basically the ISB is akin to the Gestapo, by drawing that FBI/Military Police comparison, in that they're a quasi-military organization. All stuff the old WEG RPG's established that is now being carried over I guess. Will Yularren return to animation? He was supposedly an ISB officer, though now uniform jiving doesn't work as well. Agent Kallus has a very unique uniform on, with unique insignia... plus the armor and bucket.
All cool looking I guess, but what's the purpose?
There's the "Kid element" to him too that makes me uneasy. The whole show has a cool character then something about said character that makes you wonder if he won't turn out a little hokey? This one is cool right up to the "He uses special weapons and stuff!", and then you start to wonder how far to the kid or adult market they'll take the show.
Lot of questions. I'm still going with some hopeful thinking on it.
