Grand Admiral Thrawn (full name: Mitth'raw'nuruodo) is a fictional character and major antagonist from the Star Wars galaxy. He first appeared in Timothy Zahn's Thrawn trilogy, published between 1992 and 1994. In these books, set five years after Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, Thrawn has assumed command of the remaining Imperial forces and is planning to invade the New Republic. He has subsequently appeared in numerous other Expanded Universe works, including five more novels by Zahn. Thrawn was his "core" name, reminiscent of the English word "thrawn", meaning "twisted or crooked", an apt description of his intricate schemes; his full name was only known to a few select individuals of the Empire and the New Republic. Among the Chiss race however, using the core name would imply a certain familiarity while using his full name would show the proper respect. Although Thrawn is portrayed as a villain in Timothy Zahn's Thrawn series, he is actually against the unnecessary loss of life and loves art.
