- "I just wanted to wish my competition good luck on tomorrow's big race."
- ―Torra Doza, to Kazuda Xiono
Torra Doza was a human female pilot who lived on the Colossus, an aircraft refueling station located on the Outer Rim world of Castilon, during the era of the New Republic. The daughter of a former pilot for the Alliance to Restore the Republic, her mother's exploits helped inspire Doza's own love of flying. She was a resident of the facility's upper levels, owing to the position of her father, Captain Imanuel Doza, as station operator.
Doza piloted the Blue Ace, a state-of-the-art ship with various customizations suited to her personality and racing skills, during the time of the cold war. Her membership in Ace Squadron—a starfighter squadron employed by the station for defense purposes—afforded Doza the opportunity to fly alongside some of the most skilled pilots in the galaxy. She was an avid racer, who participated in the station's racing contests and competed against the Resistance spy Kazuda Xiono of Team Fireball.
- "Nobody survived racing against me, but who knows? Maybe you'll be the first to walk away."
- ―Torra Doza, to Kazuda Xiono
Born in 19 ABY, Torra Doza was the daughter of Imanuel Doza and a former Rebel pilot. She grew up on the Colossus refuelling platform on the ocean planet Castilon, raised by her overprotective father. At a young age, Doza joined the Ace Squadron—a team of highly skilled and competitive starship pilots hired to protect the Colossus. Serving as the youngest of the Aces, Doza piloted the Blue Ace, an advanced starfighter that incorporated various design modifications to reflect Doza's personality and flying skills. She was fifteen years old when she met Kazuda Xiono during the era of the New Republic.
Doza's affiliation with the Aces afforded her the opportunity to participate in the station's racing competitions. During the rise of the First Order, Doza became acquainted with Kazuda Xiono, a New Republic pilot who raced for Jarek Yeager's Team Fireball while also working as a spy for the Resistance. She met him when he chose her as his opponent in a solo race he had been unwillingly signed up for, and she came down to Team Fireball's hangar to wish Xiono good luck. During the race, she and Xiono proved to be very close in skill, and the deciding factor was ultimately the quality of their ships, as the engines of the ramshackle Fireball gave out when Xiono pushed them too hard, causing them to crash and giving Doza the victory. After Xiono was rescued, Doza made sure to be there when he woke up, and congratulated him on surviving a race against her, which she had earlier claimed had never happened before.
A short time later, when Kragan Gorr and his gang of pirates attacked the Colossus during a major storm, Doza, along with fellow Aces Freya Fenris, Hype Fazon and Bo Keevil, defended the platform in their starships. They fought well, but were outnumbered until the pirates abruptly retreated. While Fenris believed the Aces' skill has been sufficient to claim a victory, Doza suspected there was another factor that they didn't know about. She was correct — Xiono had assisted by broadcasting a grating feedback loop over the pirates' communications channel.
Torra's next encounter with Xiono came when he managed to get himself invited into Doza Tower by Hype Fazon in an attempt to find out what visiting First Order personnel were doing on the platform. After being discovered outside Captain Doza's office, Xiono fled. Hearing the commotion, Torra sent a droid, 4D-M1N, outside to see what was going on, and Xiono slipped into the open door of her bedroom without knowing what room he was entering. Torra, assuming Xiono had come because he was attracted to her, turned him down. She was more concerned with what her father, Captain Doza, would do to Xiono if he found him there, and helped him out her window to the narrow ledge below it before the stormtroopers pursuing him forced their way in. Torra tried to claim that Xiono had gone in a different direction, but it didn't work, and the troopers left. After Xiono had successfully escaped his pursuers, when Major Elrik Vonreg confronted Captain Doza about the spy on the platform, Torra claimed that the intruder, Xiono, had merely been a friend of hers who had gotten lost while on his way out of the tower. Doza backed her up, and eventually Vonreg and his troops left.
Personality and traitsEdit
Much of Torra Doza's time was spent in the cockpit of a starship, causing her to develop a sense of flair and competitiveness as a racer. She was an audaciously bold and thrill-seeking pilot, willing to both defend the Colossus station and participate in its racing events. She was very energetic, possessing the eagerness of a teenager, yet was also exceptionally able. She favored speed as a pilot, and therefore, no expense was spared to ensure that her starfighter, the Blue Ace, was a state-of-the-art ship noted for its aerodynamic design.
Aside from her passion for flying and racing starships, Doza yearned for companionship, having been raised in an isolated household by a doting and somewhat overprotective father. As a result, she ultimately formed a friendship with Kazuda Xiono, a fellow pilot with similar interests.
