Rahara Wick was a human female who worked as a jewel thief with Pax Maripher. She was born into slavery for the Czerka Corporation on Hosnian Prime, but later escaped on Ord Mantell. While on the moon of Pijal, the two thieves encountered the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Rahara Wick first appeared in the canon novel Master & Apprentice, written by Claudia Gray and published in 2019.[1] Gray imagined Wick as being portrayed by actress Gemma Chan.[3]

In an interview with StarWars.com, Gray described the process of creating Wick, explaining that the character and her partner Maripher were designed in tandem. Gray designed the story to show what the impact of slavery could look like and stated that Wick's personality came from that idea. The character was also designed to be a "no-nonsense Watson character" based on Lucy Liu's Dr. Joan Watson in the TV show Elementary.[4]

Therefore, Master & Apprentice takes place in 40 BBY. Master & Apprentice establishes that Wick is twenty-nine years old, which places her birth around 69 BBY.
