Even in a movie teeming with crooks and double-crossing thieves, Enfys Nest stands head and shoulders above the rest as the one true antagonist of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Dressed in gilded armor that wouldn’t look out of place in a Destiny game, the identity (and gender!) of this masked figure remain under lock and key. One thing we can tell you with absolute certainty though is that Enfys Nest leads the ruthless Cloud-Riders, a galactic bike gang who are less Sons of Anarchy and more of a ragtag group of grifters and gangsters.
Of course, that’s something that can be said about the entire ensemble cast that has been assembled for Solo: A Star Wars Story, and while it would be a little too dramatic to quote Obi-Wan (“you’ll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy”), the lawless rogues of Lucasfilm’s second Anthology flick come pretty damn close.

And Enfys Nest? Well, we understand Solo‘s big bad holds a grudge against Tobias Beckett (Woody Harrelson), the famed crook who decides to take Han under his wing and, for want of a better phrase, show him the tricks of the trade.
And just like that, Han and Chewie are swept up in a daring heist, one which involves boarding the Conveyex – an AT-AT on rails, it seems – to plunder its precious cargo, all the while trying to avoid Imperial entanglements. And if history has taught us anything, it’s that ‘trouble’ may as well be Han’s middle name.
