"Thank you. For rescuing Okuvim."
"She seemed very… enthusiastic."
―Tam Bastion and the Smuggler[src]

Okuvim, also known as "Okuvim the Younger," was a female Twi'lek who served the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Iron Blockade. While on a mission to Mataou, Okuvim went missing, so Tam Bastion sent a young smuggler to find her. Once rescued, Okuvim continued working for the Rebels. Later, whenever the Rebels on Anoat needed assistance, Okuvim recruited the smuggler who had saved her.


Captured on MataouEdit

"Tch. Someone's out there? On my frequency? If you're not here to rescue, get off the line!"
"Lady, you're in luck. Bastion sent me."

Okuvim on Mataou

While in her youth, Okuvim, a female Twi'lek, joined the Alliance to Restore the Republic, earning her the title "Okuvim the Younger."[1] During this time, the Galactic Empire established the Iron Blockade around the Anoat sector,[2] and Okuvim served the Rebels as a scout. Later, Okuvim was assigned to a mission on Mataou by Tam Bastion, and she, along with two other Rebel soldiers, went missing. Bastion had faith in her ability to survive, so he sent a young smuggler to find her.[1]

The Smuggler traveled from the Konn-Nevos Spaceport on Burnin Konn to Mataou, where they made contact with the missing Rebel, who was being held captive by ro hypavenom dealers. The Smuggler defeated the criminals, and Okuvim enthusiastically greeted her rescuer, saying she would buy them drinks back at home.[1]

Working with the SmugglerEdit

"One day the Rebels will retake this sector. Probably not today, but maybe! Try our luck?"
―Okuvim, to the Smuggler[src]

Following the rescue, the Smuggler set out on a mission to Anoat, and Okuvim, having scouted there before, helped the Smuggler locate a hidden base of dissidents.[3] Okuvim continued offering work to the Smuggler, who accepted or declined various missions.[2]

When the Rebels needed someone to investigate an old housing district on Anoat, Okuvim recruited the Smuggler, offering to compensate them with guerrilla gear.[4] On another occasion, Tam Bastion and the Rebels on Anoat needed to eliminate scavengers of their supply caches, so Okuvim again hired the Smuggler, paying them in credits.[5]

Personality and traitsEdit

"You! Awful shot! But enthusiasm. I like you!"
―Okuvim, greeting the Smuggler[src]

Okuvim was a female Twi'lek with yellow skin and brown eyes who lived in the Anoat sector of the galaxy. Despite her youth, Okuvim served the Rebel Alliance, so she became known as "the Younger," and Tam Bastion, a Rebel leader, had faith in her survival abilities. Okuvim liked the Smuggler for their enthusiasm,[1] and the Smuggler later described the Twi'lek as being enthusiastic herself.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit
