- "Hi. I hear you're looking to sell your gun."
- ―Elea Poista as Kel
Elea Poista was a Human female. Originally working for a shipping company on the planet Ralltiir, she transferred to Bespin Motors on Cloud City, becoming a top Exex in the company's shipping department. The move was purely financial; for years, Poista had been operating as an arms dealer named "Kel," and the move to Bespin Motors was to secure shipping resources to serve her clients. The Kel identity was painstakingly created by Poista; Kel had birth records indicating a homeworld of Galltine, job history in the Hammo job corp, docking passes to multiple spaceports, and a presence in both Imperial and Cloud City records.
While working for Bespin Motors, Poista was in charge of contracting Molly's Merchants to stage a buyout of Bespin Motors from their parent company, Incom Corporation. Molly's Merchants transferred funds from Incom to Bespin Motors, allowing them to buy themselves out as an independent company. However, while tracking down Molly's Merchants, Poista learned just how much crime the Empire created. Her realization led her to shift her business dealings to favor the Alliance to Restore the Republic. Poista's new goal was to hurt the Empire and aid the Rebellion in any way possible, and she used her connections to secure weapons to sell to the Alliance. Although rumored to sell to highest bidder, Poista maintained Imperial and criminal connections solely to funnel new Imperial technology to the Rebellion.
Following the evacuation of Cloud City in 3 ABY, Poista led a Rebel cell in the metropolis, and sought to protect Lando Calrissian's secrets contained in the central computer. She was assisted by a protocol droid, Dee Fourpio, and the smuggler captain Tristos Arctura.
