- "Oh, my bones are aching."
Jira was a poor, old woman who ran a food stand in the Mos Espa marketplace on Tatooine. Among the foods she sold were tasty treats called pallies. She was a very kind woman who appeared to share a mutual friendship with Anakin Skywalker.
Jira depended on a cooling unit to keep her foods fresh, especially in the Tatooine heat. When she suffered from a broken cooling unit, it was Anakin Skywalker who came to rescue, by giving her the money to purchase a new one.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jira was to appear in the Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace video game, voiced by Heidi Shannon. However, she didn't make it into the final cut, although she is still credited in the game credits.
