Not everything needs to be relegated to the trash compactor room, right?
First Appearance: 'Young Jedi Knights' by Kevin J. Anderson and Rebecca Moesta
Novelization: Daughter of Prince Isolder and future Queen Mother of the Hapes Consortium (a star cluster of 63 planets) Tenel Ka grew up with Jacen and Jaina Solo at the Jedi Academy. Originally a side character in the Star Wars YA line, Ka become instrumental to the future of the galaxy as the mother of Darth Caedus's daughter. Determined to keep her daughter safe from both schemingly murderous nobles of her home world and the increasingly unhinged ideals of her father, she entered the Second Galactic Civil War to take down her former lover and bring peace to the galaxy.
Potential Screen Adaption: The world needs more characters like Ripley from 'Aliens' and Tenel Ka is one of those characters. In another parallel — this time to the prequels — Ka confronts her fallen love about his descent into darkness. But unlike Padme, there are no tears and 'dying of a broken heart.' Instead Ka does what she has to do to protect her child and opens fire even as it kills her inside.
Casting Suggestion: Lupita Nyong'o
