New cover art has been unveiled for Star Wars: The High Republic Phase II. The reveal was made on Star Wars: The High Republic Show. The new authors for the phase were revealed Zoraida Córdova, Tessa Gratton, Lydia Kang, and George Mann on February’s show.
The first cover revealed was for Path of Deceit. This is written by Gratton and Ireland. It features a Pantoran Jedi only known as the Mother. There is also a new Evereni character named Marda Ro. The story takes readers back to the planet Dalna where they will meet a new group: The Path of the Open Hand.
During the show, there was also a look at concept art for the mysterious Marda. This is the same species as Phase I’s antagonist Marchion Ro. However, Marda is the opposite of the Nihil’s stormy leader. She is quiet, calm, and collected, and is a peaceful presence in this era that takes place about 150 years before the events of Phase I.
