"Commander Iden Versio leads the special forces unit Inferno Squad. An expert pilot and soldier, she solves problems through unconventional means."
— In-game description

Iden Versio is the main protagonist for the campaign of DICE's Star Wars Battlefront II. Born on Vardos, a world loyal to the Empire, Iden is the commander of the Imperial special forces unit Inferno Squad—a team as equally lethal in the air as it is on the ground. Iden commands Agents Del Meeko and Gideon Hask, two elite soldiers serving in Inferno Squad. Inferno is also supported by Iden's droid. Her father, Garrick Versio, is an admiral stationed on the Eviscerator and is Iden's commanding officer. Iden goes on to have a daughter, Zay Versio.

Iden Versio is also an Imperial Hero in the online multiplayer of Star Wars Battlefront II.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Campaign[edit | edit source]

The campaign of Star Wars Battlefront II follows Iden Versio, the commander of Inferno Squad, an elite special forces unit of the Galactic Empire. She is ready to give her life for the Empire and end the hated Rebel Alliance once and for all until a fateful event changes everything. The last order given by a now-dead Emperor demands the purging of several planets, including her own homeworld of Vardos. Against her pleas, her father carries out the first order of Operation: Cinder and everything Iden thought she knew and trusted about the Empire is questioned.

Multiplayer[edit | edit source]

Iden is a versatile hero whose vast amount of tools allow her to excel in combat from all ranges, be it short, medium or long. Her TL-50 is a deadly weapon with very high rate of fire with the ability to fire a deadly secondary fire which can take out three of the four default classes (the Heavy being an exception) and a cluster of enemies.

Stun Droid is a simple but very effective tool. Iden calls on her droid to stun enemies, which can chain to multiple enemies. It deals a small amount of damage and keeps them stunned for long enough while Iden dispatches of them.

Iden is the only character in Battlefront II to wield the Pulse Cannon, which functions similarly to its 2015 counterpart. The Age of Rebellion Update added the capability to fire the Pulse Cannon from the hip and allowed the weapon to fire without being fully charged.

Her Droid Shield is a very useful utility when surrounded by blasterfire which, in addition to blocking blasterfire, also prevents explosive like Han Solo's Detonite Charge from dealing damage to her. Activating this when at low health will greatly help her survivability while she regenerates health. However, lightsabers can pierce the shield.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Iden is featured on both the deluxe and standard edition covers of Star Wars Battlefront II, making her the only character to appear on both game editions.
  • Despite being commander of Inferno Squad, she is the youngest member of the unit.
  • She is portrayed by Janina Gavankar (motion capture and voice).
  • According to Gordy Haab, the composer of Battlefront II, Iden's theme, which is played several times in the campaign and when she spawns as a hero in multiplayer, is not too "dark" (evil) or "light" (good), referencing her defection from the Galactic Empire and later becoming a hero for the Rebel Alliance.
