Xea was female human from the planet of Eriadu. In the early years of the Galactic Empire's reign, she and her older brother lived with their father and mother, who maintained an air scrubber farm. Shortly after Xea turned eight, a band of rebels raided the farm and attempted to steal scrubbers by tugging them with a starship. One of the machines, however, fell on the roof and into the room where Xea slept, crushing the eight-year-old to death. Because of that tragic incident, Xea's brother developed a deep hatred for rebels, which prompted him to enlist in the Imperial Academy to become a stormtrooper.[1]

  2. As stated in TK-462, Xea died at the age of eight, in the same year the Wilhuff Tarkin was promoted to Grand Moff. According to the novel Tarkin, this occurred 14 years before the Battle of Yavin. Through simple math, it can be concluded that she was born 22 years before Yavin.
