Notice: you may note the domain name IS CHANGING. The contents are not. I'm dedicated to maintaining information (lore if you will) and the history of the original Star Wars canon. That said, the old name was a handful to type, spell & remember, especially on mobile, (and more expensive) so update your links to the new one! The old will eventually be going away.

Tahiri Veila

Era: After the Battle of Endor.

Tahiri hails from Tatooine, where she was raised by the tusken raider tribe led by Sliven after her parents death. At age nine she was discovered by Luke Skywalker and Tionne and brought to the Jedi Academy.

Her best friend is Anakin Solo. Tahiri prefers to go barefoot and her talkative nature hides a tough, stubborn girl who survived the wilds of Tatooine and more to become a Jedi Knight.

Her worst trials include events in the New Jedi Order and the death of friends and Legacy of the Force when she came briefly under the influence of Darth Caedus.

“Shoes were invented by the Sith to keep our delicate toes in anguish and misery, I’m sure of it.” ―Tahiri Veila, when Anakin commented that she’s still barefoot[src]
“I know something about pain you don’t. Pain drowns other people. I just swim in it.” -Tahiri Veila
