As a deep dive into the early days of the Rebel Alliance, Andor is a somber, engaging and mesmerizing tale. For those who have already watched Rogue One, it is no surprise seeing rebels go through some really tough, often life-threatening, situations in Andor.
It is possible that many of the characters depicted in the show will meet quick deaths. So, if you want to keep up with the characters that don’t make it out alive, here’s your guide.
The major deaths in Andor so far are Lieutenant Gorn, Taramyn, Skeen, Nemik, and Maarva. The rebels die due to their mission on Aldhani in Andor Ep 6, while Maarva dies of natural causes in Ep 11.
Keep an eye out as we’ll keep updating this article!
Is Kino Loy dead?
The latest Andor query on your mind must be whether or not Kino Loy is dead. The character was brought into Andor in Ep 8 as a floor manager to Cassian’s prison unit.
Although at first stern and antagonistic towards Cassian, he soon accepts that they must work together in order to escape. In Ep 10, Cassian and the team are able to break out of prison by flooding it. However, Kino reveals he cannot swim and remains behind.
Does this mean he dies off-camera? No, Kino Loy is very much alive, according to an EW interview with director Toby Hanes.
But we still don’t know what happens to the character next as that is still kept under wraps by creator Tony Gilroy. Maybe Kino will return in Andor Season 2?
List of Character Deaths in Andor Season 1
I. How did Lieutenant Gorn die? (Episode 6)
When Gorn was stationed on Aldhani, he fell in love with a local there. Sadly, she got killed due to the actions of the Empire, which made him turn on them. He then began working as a double agent for Vel.
His journey comes to an end during Cassian’s first mission in Andor Ep 6. During the gunfight, Gorn was caught in the crossfire and died in the process.
II. How did Taramyn Barcona die? (Episode 6)
Taramyn used to be a Stormtrooper, but no one knows the exact reason for his defection. He did retain some of his more aggressive, authoritative side from his days of serving the Empire.
Taramyn, too, dies during the Aldhani mission depicted in Andor Ep 6. He was trying to reach the shuttle but got shot by an Imperial Officer before he could make it.
III. How did Arvel Skeen die? (Episode 6)
When Vel inducted Cassian into the Aldhani mission, Skeen was one of the first to disapprove of him. So, it is indeed surprising that at the end of the mission, Skeen asks Cassian to betray the rebels and run away and take the credits with him.
This digression cost him his life. Cassian was infuriated with Skeen’s plan of running away from the rebels’ credits and shot him dead in retaliation.
IV. How did Karis Nemik die? (Episode 6)
Nemik was an understanding and open-minded member of the rebel crew who did not oppose Cassian’s inclusion. His kind nature is what makes his short-lived appearance so sad.
While heading back to the ship after the Aldhani mission, Nemik gets struck by a credits carton, which fatally wounds him. Although he is taken to a doctor, he succumbs to his injuries. As his dying wish, he left his manifesto for Cassian.
V. How did Maarva Andor die? (Episode 11)
Maarva, as you already know, is Cassian’s adoptive mother, who did her best to always protect Cassian. Sadly, her journey comes to an end in Episode 11.
There is not much known about how Maarva dies, other than the fact that she dies of natural causes/illness. There’s no suspicion of foul play at the moment, but the ISB are sure using her death as a way to lure Cassian out.
