Kyrsta Agate was a New Republic Starfleet commander in the books Aftermath, Aftermath: Life Debt, and Aftermath: Empire’s End.

After the Battle of Endor Agate worked with other Rebellion leaders including Admiral Ackbar, Chancellor Mon Mothma, and General Madine in their fight against the remnants of the Empire.

Agate suffered severe injuries during the Attack on Chandrila that greatly affected her both physically and emotionally. But she still played an incredibly important role in the Battle of Jakku.

Agate, however, was far from a fan of war. Amy Ratcliffe described Agate’s strong feelings about that subject in Star Wars: Women of the Galaxy:

“As skilled as she is in space combat, and as necessary as she knows the fight against the Empire is, she hates war and killing, and doesn’t want soldiers who enjoy eliminating the enemy. When fellow Rebel Norra Wexley suggests that maintaining such a stance might mean losing the war against the Empire, Krysta says, “Then we lose the war by keeping ourselves.”
