"Telissa? Oh, sorry. I thought you were my assistant."
―Uta S'orn to Qui-Gon Jinn[src]

Telissa was an aide to Galactic Republic Senator Uta S'orn[1] of the Expansion Region planet[2] Belasco prior to S'orn's resignation from the Galactic Senate[1] in 43 BBY.[3] When Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn came to visit S'orn in her office in the Senate Building on the Republic capital of Coruscant shortly before she resigned, she first mistook Jinn's knocking for Telissa's when answering the door.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Telissa was created by author Jude Watson and was first mentioned in the eleventh installment of the Jedi Apprentice series, The Deadly Hunter,[1] which was released on December 1, 2000 by Scholastic.[4] The young reader novel remains the only reference to the character in Star Wars media to date. Neither Telissa's species nor gender were specified in the book.[1]
