She later revealed that she was the first of her race captured and imprisoned by the Nagai, during the subjugation of the planet Zeltros. Dani was part of the smuggler team which agreed to join the Alliance on Stenos, and stayed behind with Rik and Chihdo to keep up the search for the lost statue of Vol. She immediately latched onto Luke Skywalker when he arrived on Stenos with Lando Calrissian during their search for Bossk and IG-88. However, as soon as the statue was found, Rik and his band tried to make off with the statue and sell it to Imperial Governor Matrin. This plan failed miserably, as the Stenaxes learned of the statue's reappearance and set out to recover it. In their anger, the Stenaxes killed the Imperials, but they spared the smugglers. Dani, Rik, and Chihdo remained on Stenos for several years, until Luke Skywalker returned with Lando Calrissian on a mission to locate Bossk.

She eventually returned to Rik and Chihdo, and they set off for the planet Iskalon to salvage whatever they could find in the ruins of Pavillion. This plan fell through when Mone demanded that they leave the planet. Throughout all these adventures, Dani never forgot her love for Luke, which was rekindled when they accompanied him to Shawken. When he continually refused to return her love, Dani turned instead to the Iskalonian known as Kiro. Months later, Dani was captured on Kinooine by Lumiya, and held as bait in a trap to catch Luke Skywalker. Her capture followed the apparent death of Kiro, a loss that haunted her for many months. It was during this time that she was tortured by Den Siva, and Dani was never the same afterward. Her usual bubbly personality and unconditional love had been replaced with a hardness and the desire to destroy the Nagai. In the wake of the liberation of Zeltros from the Tofs, Dani returned to her homeworld and disappeared from the public eye.
