"To the east passage!"
―Lando Calrissian and Kalo'ne[src]

Kalo'ne was a female individual who resided on the planet Pasaana, driving a DN-25 treadable that she used to transport passengers and goods. She had worked on the planet for several decades, witnessing many occurrences of the Festival of the Ancestors.

In 35 ABY, she gave passage to the hermit Lando Calrissian and Resistance members Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron, and Chewbacca, who were visiting Pasaana on a mission to search for the Sith assassin Ochi. Calrissian asked Kalo'ne to take them to the east passage, where she successfully delivered the group.


Kalo'ne was a female DN-25 treadable driver who worked on the planet Pasaana, transporting goods and passengers. She traveled a circuit of stops on the world and would keep the cabin of her vehicle filled with a variety of wares from the locales she visited. Passengers were encouraged to browse the wares during their journey, although no prices were listed and everything was negotiable. Each journey seemed to last just long enough for her to make a profitable sale.[1]

By 35 ABY,[2] Kalo'ne had been working in her treadable for decades and had weathered many Festivals of the Ancestors, even joking to new visitors that she was one of the ancestors being honored. The festival was always a busy time for her as the treadable was in high demand for transit duty, with riders often bartering goods for transport that Kalo'ne could then sell to other passengers for profit.[1]

In that year, one of the customers that hired out Kalo'ne's vehicle was the hermit Lando Calrissian, who rushed on board with Resistance agents Poe Dameron, Finn, Rey, C-3PO, BB-8 and Chewbacca in order to avoid First Order soldiers at the festival. Calrissian requested that she drive to the east passage through the sliding slot in her door, which she agreed to before closing the slot. At the end of the journey, the Resistance agents dismounted, leaving Calrissian on board with Kalo'ne while they continued their search for the Sith assassin Ochi.[3]

Personality and traits[]

Kalo'ne was flinty and age-worn after decades of treadable driving and was most comfortable in her driving cabin with her serpentine body wrapped around the steering column. She spoke with customers through the slot in her door or using a decrepit loudspeaker system. She had three blue tri-lensed eyes with multi-spectral vision. Her skin was gray and her hair was pink.[1]


Kalo'ne wore a red robe and drove a DN-25 treadable. During the Festival of Ancestors in 35 ABY she was carrying cargo including hoary digwort fronds, atleast two sacks of flint-rind figs and a reed-twine wrapped bundle of tarp.[1]
