"What do you lylek-dung-grubbers want with me?"
―Swilja to Tsavong Lah[src]

Swilja Fenn was one of a number of female Twi'lek Jedi Knights in the New Jedi Order and a member of Clan Fenn.

Fenn was named after Twi'lek legendary princess Swilja, known for her beauty.


Yuuzhan Vong WarEdit

"The Force is stronger than you. The Jedi will be your end, Tsavong Lah!"
―Swilja's final words[src]

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Swilja was pursued and caught by Peace Brigadiers on Cujicor. She had been dumped on a nameless moon for the Yuuzhan Vong to collect. They transported her to Warmaster Tsavong Lah, who congratulated her on proving herself worthy of honored sacrifice, to which Swilja tried to lash out and attack Lah but to no avail.

Lah asked her to help deliver Jacen Solo to him. When she refused, instructing him to "Eat poodoo", he turned her over to interrogaters, and finally killed her personally.

During her imprisonment and torture with the Yuuzhan Vong, Swilja was ready to embrace the dark side, but due to their blindness to the Force, knew even that would be ineffectual.

During the Jedi conclave on Yavin 4, Kyp Durron used her death and others, to argue for a more aggressive resistance to the Yuuzhan Vong.

Behind the scenesEdit


A potential Swilja from Star Wars: Union

It was not been identified what skin color Swilja had. A female Twi'lek with fair skin appeared in the Star Wars: Union comics. When queried about this on the forums, Leland Chee initially said this could be Swilja,[1] followed by a later comment saying this is probably Swilja.[2] The other female Twi'leks in the New Jedi Order—Daeshara'cor, Alema Rar and Numa Rar—are green and blue respectively.
