"I think my folks sat me down to watch A New Hope on VHS when I was very young, and that was the beginning of the end."
―Abel G. Peña

Abel Gustavo Lopez Peña IV (May 29, 1979—) is an author who has written reference articles for Star Wars Insider, the Official Star Wars Website, the Wizards of the Coast website, Star Wars Gamer, The Official Star Wars Fact File, and Vader: The Ultimate Guide. Known for referencing obscure and out-of-print Star Wars material in his work, Peña is among the few authors who fraternizes with the fan community, posting on both the blogs and the Jedi Council Forums under the names "Halagad" and "Halagad_Ventor" respectively.

This interest in the obscure West End Games character Halagad Ventor led Peña to his second role in Star Wars; that of a model. In 2005, artist Joe Corroney used Peña as the basis of his rendering of Ventor for Insider 84's HoloNet News.

He is also a member of the Star Wars Fanboy Association.
