"Thank you. For rescuing Okuvim."
"She seemed very… enthusiastic."
―Tam Bastion and the smuggler[src]

Okuvim, also known as Okuvim the Younger, was a Twi'lek female who served as a scout in the Alliance to Restore the Republic during its war against the Galactic Empire. Around 4 ABY, while on a mission to the planet Mataou, Okuvim was captured by dealers of ro hypa venom, and she lost contact with the Rebel Alliance. Concerned with Okuvim's disappearance, rebel agent Tam Bastion hired a young smuggler to find her. The smuggler traveled to Mataou and liberated Okuvim from the criminals. Sometime later, Okuvim hired the smuggler to run errands for the Rebel Alliance.


Captured on MataouEdit

"Tch. Someone's out there? On my frequency? If you're not here to rescue, get off the line!"
"Lady, you're in luck. Bastion sent me."

Okuvim on Mataou

Okuvim was a scout for the Alliance to Restore the Republic during the Galactic Civil War against the Galactic Empire.[1] Following the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY, which saw the death of Galactic Emperor Sheev Palpatine,[2] Imperial Governor Ubrik Adelhard of the Anoat sector established the Iron Blockade to prevent word of the Emperor's death from reaching the sector's populace.[3] During this time, Okuvim and two other rebels were assigned a mission to the Anoat sector planet Mataou by rebel agent Tam Bastion.[1]

On Mataou, Okuvim's companions were killed by dealers of ro hypa venom, and she was taken captive. When Okuvim's communications ceased, Bastion hired a young smuggler to find her. The smuggler traveled to Mataou, where they made radio contact with the missing rebel. The smuggler defeated Okuvim's captors, and the rebel enthusiastically greeted her rescuer, saying she would buy them drinks back at home.[1]

Working with the smugglerEdit

"One day the Rebels will retake this sector. Probably not today, but maybe! Try our luck?"
―Okuvim, to the smuggler[src]

Following the rescue, the smuggler set out on a mission to the planet Anoat, and Okuvim, having scouted there before, helped the smuggler locate a hidden base of dissidents.[4] Okuvim offered work to the smuggler, sending them on various rebel missions.[3]

When the rebels needed someone to investigate an old housing district on Anoat, Okuvim recruited the smuggler, offering to compensate them with guerrilla gear.[5] On another occasion, Bastion and the rebels on Anoat needed to eliminate scavengers of their supply caches, so Okuvim hired the smuggler and payed them in credits.[6]

Personality and traitsEdit

"You! Awful shot! But enthusiasm. I like you!"
―Okuvim, greeting the smuggler[src]

Okuvim, often referred to as Okuvim the Younger, was a Twi'lek female with yellow skin, brown-striped lekku, and brown eyes. When Okuvim went missing, Bastion had faith in her survival abilities and sent the smuggler to find her. Okuvim liked the smuggler for their enthusiasm,[1] and the smuggler later described the Twi'lek as being enthusiastic herself.[4]


As a rebel scout, Okuvim wore tan pants, a brown vest, black gloves, and dark headgear. She was also equipped with a bandolier and a holster.[1]
