Ayy Vida was an exotic Twi'lek dancer and assassin in Coruscant's Outlander Club. She used her alluring dancing to get close to her marks. She was often accompanied by her friend, the purple-skinned Lunae Minx. She was the unwilling consort of the petty criminal Hat Lo, and would have fled from him if not for her fear of his Weequay bodyguard, Tas Kee.
One night in 22 BBY, she caught the eye of Achk Med-Beq, a young Republic officer. She may have believed that he would take her away from the lifestyle, but in truth he was nothing more than a con artist. Ayy was already treading dangerous territory as she was already flirting with Achk's partner in crime Dannl Faytonni. Fortunately, an unrelated incident—Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker pursuing Zam Wesell in the same bar—broke the tension at the right moment.
Though originally yellow-skinned, Ayy had her skin dyed to produce a mottled, red-yellow pattern.
