Jabba Desilijic Tiure's criminal empire

Yarna d'al' Gargan was a longtime Askajian dancer from Askaj at Jabba's Palace. She was present during the presentation of the Max Rebo Band.

BiographyEdit

The daughter of an Askajian tribal chief, Yarna married Nautag d'al' Gargan. They had many children together. While raising her cubs with Nautag on Askaj around 3 ABY, they were taken as slaves to Tatooine, and were then bought by Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Nautag was killed by Jabba's rancor while trying to defend them and her cublings were removed to Jabba's town house.[3] Although she detested her boss and owner, she was nonetheless close friends with some of the various patrons of the palace.

She claimed that her name "Yarna" translated to Basic as "pretty." However, her beauty was often hidden[3] by the wart makeup Jabba forced her to wear, saying that it reminded him of his "mother," or in this case, Zorba Desilijic Tiure. Also, the normally slender woman was made to store as much water as possible in order to increase her girth, thus furthering the resemblance to a Hutt[3]—weight she would eventually lose again after Jabba's death.

In 4 ABY, as C-3PO and R2-D2 were brought before Jabba, Yarna openly flirted with a balding Human male.[4] She later performed a dance with Oola prior to the Twi'lek's demise.[4]

After escaping Jabba's palace and rescuing her cubs with Doallyn, they became traders in jewels and textiles. She occasionally danced to earn extra credits—in fact, she even danced the Dance of the Seventy Violet Veils at the wedding of Han Solo and Leia Organa where she would be spotted by a designer and became the model for his jeweled brassieres. After that Doallyn managed her career as a model.[5]

She had two daughters, named Luka and Leia after Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, and a son named Nautag, after his father.[6] Yarna's children became a jizz swing band, and together they toured the galaxy.[5]

Behind the scenesEdit

Yarna d'al' Gargan was portrayed by the late Claire Davenport in Return of the Jedi. During production of the movie, her character was known as Wiebba-wiebba.[7] Pablo Hidalgo detailed this revelation on The Official Star Wars Blog in 2013. Leland Chee had however previously identified "Weeba Weeba" as the human Rancor keeper who wears apparel resembling that of Nizuc Bek and Velken Tezeri but is not conclusively one or the other.[8]

Kenner Products considered selling this character as an action figure, but thought it would be inappropriate to have a six breasted toy on the shelves. It would later be sold by Hasbro in 2008.
