Alora was a Force-sensitive human child abducted by the Inquisitors Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister from a transport leaving the planet Chandel some four years before the Battle of Yavin, which she had been travelling on with her grandmother Darja. Rebel Ahsoka Tano learned of Alora's abduction when she found the dying woman while investigating the derelict freighter. Alora was rescued by Ahsoka's fellow rebels Garazeb Orrelios, Kanan Jarrus, Ezra Bridger and Chopper on Takobo, where the Inquisitors had taken her on the way to abduct another Force-sensitive child, Pypey. The rebels successfully escaped with both children and Pypey's mother Oora, realizing that since the Jedi Order had been destroyed by the Galactic Empire, protecting children like them was their responsibility now.
Behind the scenesEdit
Alora was inspired by and named after Elora Danan from the Lucasfilm production Willow. The material that Alora is swaddled in features a repeating pattern, which can also be found in the house of Oora and Pypey. These symbols bear a striking resemblance to the patterns embroidered on pieces of regional costumes and various other traditional items in the countries of Poland, Belarus, and Ukraine - showing that the Slavic nations were a key inspiration for this design.
