In Rogue One, the world was launched to Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor hiding out in a dingy again alley. His frantic informant advised him that the darkish rumors of an Imperial “planet-killer” weapon had been true. Then, as Stormtroopers closed in, the person started to panic, risking alerting the Imperials round them. Cassian made a brutal however vital name – blam.
Now, 10 episodes into Andor, a present that opens with the title hero gunning down a safety officer who was begging for his life, a extremely observant poster on r/StarWars has famous that “Cassian is simply sort of a assassin?”:
“He appears to simply shoot folks in chilly blood. He’s all the time portrayed as an excellent man however he actually simply murders folks. Do you disagree?”
The responses are of the “no **** Sherlock” selection”, mentioning that that is only a description of his character:
Others level to a key quote from Rogue One that defines the character:
One other merely sums it up as:
It’s value remembering that Cassian Andor is merely the logical endpoint of the way in which Han Solo is launched in A New Hope. Realizing the Greedo is about to get the drop on him, Han shoots first and cold-bloodedly blows the Rodian away, proving his mercenary credentials.

The Empire isn’t going to be defeated by taking part in good, with Luthen open about him utilizing their very own instruments and strategies to combat again in opposition to them, saying males like Cassian Andor have the right character to get the job performed.
So yeah, technically he’s a assassin, however a assassin is what the Revolt wants.
