Aila Helano was a female corporate researcher who possessed a formula for a new stimulant, a "wonder stim,"[1] by 3638 BBY,[2] during the Galactic War between the reconstituted Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. She sought to sell her formula directly to one of the two galactic powers.[1]

This section of the article assumes 100% game completion of Star Wars: The Old Republic. Any alternate stories may be noted in the "Behind the scenes" section. The events in this section may or may not have been confirmed as canon within the Star Wars Legends continuity.

In that year,[2] an individual associated with one of the two warring governments had a companion successfully broker a meeting between a representative of their government and Helano.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Aila Helano was mentioned in the Crew Skill mission "Secret Recipe" in Rise of the Hutt Cartel, a 2013 expansion of the 2011 BioWare video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic.[1]

  2. 2.0 2.1 According to SWTOR mini.png Forums: Dear Story Team, What Year Are We Currently In? on The Old Republic's official website (backup link), Star Wars: The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel takes place from early to mid 3638 BBY, and further Game Updates that were released in 2013 take place in the latter half of that year. The post also states that Game Updates released in 2014 can be placed in early and mid 3637 BBY, Shadow of Revan takes place near the end of that year, and that the events of Game Updates 3.1 through 3.3 can be placed in early and mid 3636 BBY. Therefore, the events of Game Update 2.0 and the Digital Expansion Rise of the Hutt Cartel can be placed in 3638 BBY. As the Crew Skill mission "Secret Recipe" was released with Rise of the Hutt Cartel, it must also take place around that year.
