Crimson Corsair attempt at "new" Boba?

In the original trilogy, we got Boba Fett, a mysterious, bad*** looking character that nobody new about. He quickly gained a following and became a fan favorite. because of fans reaction to him, he was implemented into the next two films. He then received a complete background through the expanded universe. Now, in the sequel trilogy, we get space pirate Sidon Ithano, aka the Crimson Corsair. He is the awesome-looking man in Maz Kanata's bar that Finn talks to for a ride off Takodana. A look into this character reveals a semi-extensive background considering how new The Force Awakens is. He is the most-expanded on background character from the new movie. So this got me thinking, is the Crimson Corsair an attempt at a new Bob-esque figure for a new generation?

  • And I realize most people have no idea who he is, but nobody knew who Boba was either.

    Wasn't Captain Phasma their attempt to create another Boba Fett? Besides, the stormtrooper who gets in a duel with Finn stole the show anyways.

  • I could see that. But I was thinking Boba and Crimson Corsair are both technically "unaffiliated."
  • My interest in his character boosted a lot once I heard that Kix is in his pirate crew.

    He looks pretty rad in red. I read about him and rad is all I said.

    Awesome info and vid as well. Space pirates are cool as helium.
