this woman, a supporter of the Alliance, was a native of the planet Tuttin IV. Jioie was trained in her youth as a classical musician, and had soprano voice which brought many an audience to tears. She and her husband, Tendis, had a son named Ryley, who they were forced to leave behind when the Empire took control of Tuttin IV. In order to provide a cover for their duties with the Alliance, they accepted a posting off-planet with the Empire, leaving Ryley in the care of Shran Etison. Tendis had taken a promotion to become the foreman of a factory offplanet, while Jioie went along as his assistant. Ryley, when he was old enough, began to hate his parents because he believed that they had abandoned him to take positions within the Empire. When she learned that Ryley had been feeding information to Keth Beamis, Jioie arranged to be on Beltrix III for his audition. Ryley was stunned to meet his mother there, but kept a straight face in order to maintain Jioie's cover.
