|Chronological and political information|
Shella Motti was a Human female and a member of the Motti family. At some point following the Clone Wars, she was abducted by agents of the Nebula Front. Despite the efforts of Wilhuff Tarkin, her uncle by marriage, to rescue her, Motti refused to return to her family.
Shella Motti was part of the Motti family, an influental Human clan centralized on Phelarion, in the Seswenna sector of the Outer Rim Territories. She was a cousin of then-Commander Conan Antonio Motti, and the niece of Thalassa Tarkin, nee Motti, who had married the governor Wilhuff Tarkin. At an unknown point during the early Imperial Period, Motti was kidnapped by agents of a criminal organization known as the Nebula Front, and Tarkin hired several beings to rescue her. Though the Nebula Front's hideout was located and Shella found, she surprised her would-be rescuers by refusing to return to her family. Worse, she had already hired a second team of agents to prevent her return, led by a bounty hunter that Tarkin's hired men had already crossed paths with.
