Jesba-Be Issa was an Aki-Aki resident of the planet Pasaana who acted as a tribal guardian of communally raised children.[1] By 35 ABY,[2] Issa was an adult and attended the Festival of the Ancestors in the Forbidden Valley, where the tribal guardian stood holding an Aki-Aki infant alongside fellow guardian Fadda-Rarb Arda. As Issa held up the infant and rocked it in the air, a group of Resistance agents searching for a Sith wayfinder passed by.[3] Issa wore a turquoise flowing kaftan that allowed for unimpeded dancing with a monocot-fiber hood suitable for a warm sun. The Aki-Aki also wore a rattling purple pallie-pit necklace and a second, blue necklace with golden beads. Issa had gray skin and brown eyes.[1]

Jesba-Be Issa was created for the 2019 sequel trilogy film, Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker,[3] and was first identified in the accompanying reference book Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary, which was written by Pablo Hidalgo.[1]

  2. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that the events of Star Wars: Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker occur thirty five years after the Battle of Yavin. As Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Battle of Yavin to 0 BBY, the events of The Rise of Skywalker, which includes Issa's appearance, must occur in 35 ABY.
