this woman was the leader of the first colony ships to land on Tatooine. She was faced with a number of problems upon landing on the desert world, including the crash of the supply ship Dowager Queen. She rallied her people, and eked out a settlement from the unforgiving land. She established the Bestine settlement, and opened a dialogue with the local Jawas, who were already living on the planet. They agreed to help the humans, and the colony eventually prospered. Later, Fort Tusken and Motesta were established, although Fort Tusken was abandoned after a Sandperson attack.
