Affiliation

Meena Tills was a female Mon Calamari and the Senator of Calamari sector together with the Quarren Tundra Dowmeia during the Clone Wars. Tills and Dowmeia replaced former Senator Tikkes, who defected to the Confederacy of Independent Systems.

BiographyEdit

Early in the Clone Wars, in 22 BBY, Tills was kidnapped and held hostage at the Galactic City Spaceport on Coruscant by a group of Korunnai terrorists from the planet Haruun Kal. After a lengthy stand off with the Coruscant Security Force and the brutal murder of a Jedi negotiator, Tills and the other hostages at the spaceport were rescued by Null ARC trooper N-11 and the clone commandos of Omega Squad.[3]

Tills orders Captain Ackbar to protect Prince Lee-Char

Around 21 BBY, during the Clone Wars, Tills was present during a second battle of Dac, as the Mon Calamari people sided with the Republic, while the Quarren were backed by the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Tills was caught in the midst of this conflict, advising where she could while under the protection of the Jedi and clone troopers.

A staunch Loyalist, she was one of the leading political figures behind the Delegation of 2000, a movement in the Galactic Senate that opposed Supreme Chancellor Palpatine staying in power. She was part of the group that presented the Petition of 2000 to Palpatine following the Battle of Coruscant. The document would later be used to incriminate many Loyalists, including Tills, under the Galactic Empire.

After the formation of the Empire, Senator Tills was arrested and her people and planet were enslaved. However, she eventually escaped captivity, and was eventually issued with a bounty on her head sometime prior to the Battle of Yavin.[4]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Well, here's the thing about that: Meena Tills is a name based on a Lucasfilm employee and friend of mine, Tina Mills. And in that regard, it makes absolute zero sense in Lucasfilm that Meena Tills would be a man."
―Supervising Director Dave Filoni[src]

In 2011, the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series episode "Water War," changed Tills' gender from male to female. This discrepancy establishes a continuity error, as Tills, who first appeared in George Lucas' 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, was introduced as a male and was such in various sources following the film. Supervising Director Dave Filoni later clarified that change to be based on the character's original namesake, Lucasfilm employee Tina Mills.
