- "But you can't escape your past."
- ―Xora's last words to Darth Vader
Xora was a female Falleen who was employed by the Bothan information broker Jib Kopatha during the Galactic Civil War. Her brothers and sisters were killed in 7 BBY when Darth Vader sterilized one of Falleen's major cities in the wake of an outbreak of an experimental bacterial contagion.
Shortly after the Evacuation of Yavin, she, along with several of her Falleen co-workers (including Zuur), attempted to assassinate Darth Vader during his visit to Void Station in revenge for his decimation of their species. They were no match for the mighty Sith Lord, and were quickly slain. Before Xora's life expired, Vader told her he didn't like being reminded of his past, but Xora used her last words to tell the Sith Lord that he couldn't escape his past.
Personality and traitsEdit
Xora held a deep hatred against Vader and the Galactic Empire, viewing him as a monster. Going against her species' traditions, she openly showed her emotions and acted impatiently, possibly due to the trauma of the losses Vader had caused her.
