File Description

While I can't say I'm that far in the NJO series (finished Dark Tide II: Onslaught today), I do know who this character is. Tahiri Veila was an unfortunate human female. Unfortunate, because she had been "shaped" - mutiliated and "enhanced" by the Yuuzhan Vong. This also gave her a second persona, one of a Yuuzhan Vong.

This is a very interesting skin, because... It's not a Reborn, nor a Jawa :P I'm not arrogant enough to think that it was my doing that blessed me with such a change, though I'd like it to be so. Anyway, you are looking upon a Mara Jade reskin, if I'm not mistaken. Two versions are included and they are NOT essentially the same skins!

The first skin is a normal Tahiri, although she has no shoes (ouch). And... her face is not that of Mara! Woo Yay! I am not too fond of the hair, but the skin is new and I appreciate that.

The second one is the Vong version of Tahiri Veila, sporting a Vonduun crab armor (I think I'm right) and a... tattoo! She also has a special, Yuuzhan Vong version of a lightsaber, which looks like one of the stock hilts reskinned but my, does it look convincing!

And the conclusion? Pretty much positive, but, just so you know, the skin isn't perfect. It is original, however, and that's AT LEAST as good! So, keep it up ;)

Tahiri Velia Character history: Childhood playmate of Anakin Solo at the Jedi academy and later, a love interest as they go through their teens. A strong willed young girl who refuses to wear shoes of any kind unless absolutely neccessary. During one adventure, Tahiri was captured by a goup of Aliens from outside the known galaxy who are cut off from the force, and use organic technology. They attempted to change her, turn her into one of them, they failed only because of the interference of Anakin Solo. Anakin had a vision of an older tahiri, looking similar to the aliens and surrounded by Dark side energy. He managed to rescue her, but she wasn't the same afterwards, both mentally and physically scarred by her ordeal. The death of Anakin Solo at the hands of the same Aliens almost destroyed her, causing her to break down and suppressed memories implanted by the Aliens to surface in the form of a new personality. Tahiri was eventually healed, though her personality became a blend of her own, and the one the Aliens tried to create. She now works with the Jedi in an attempt to broker peace between the Aliens and the inhabitants of the Star Wars galaxy.
