Plot summary[edit | edit source]

Pedestrian insults[edit | edit source]

Walking through the streets of the planet Ryloth, a young Twi'lek girl named Neesha Tor was being insulting by other pedestrians who looked down on her for being poor and an orphan. Another Twi'lek called out to her because of her bad smell. She told Neesha that she used to live near her grandmother and watched her mother grow up. Everyone expected greatness from her mother so when she deserted Neesha, everyone believed that she deserved it. Her son tried to give Neesha some food but the woman would not allow it.

Neesha Tor went over to the side of a cliff where a one earred tooka was. She admired the tooka and asked it if it had done anything for anyone to hate it. Asking this question angered Neesha who kicked the ground in front of her. She slipped and fell but she managed to grab on to the edge of the cliff. Hanging on to the edge of the cliff with just hand, Neesha realized this is what she deserved.

Windu to the rescue[edit | edit source]

But an individual from the top of the cliff told her that he didn't believe her. Using his lightsaber to fall down the cliff he greeted Neesha and introduced himself as Jedi Master Mace Windu. Windu offered the girl his assistance in getting her out but Neesha questioned how he could do it. The Jedi Master was confident that he could do it and used The Force to lift Neesha up and towards the top of the cliff. Windu then jumped up and joined her at the top of the cliff.

Neesha Tor questioned why Mace Windu would help her because she believed that she was worthless unlike him. Windu told her that she was not worthless and that everyone needs help sometimes, no matter what they think of you. Windu believed that one day she will help people and walked off into the sunset.

Many decades later,[2] the cartographer, Emil Graf complemented Neesha Tor on her story and asked her if she knew what Mace Windu meant when he was talking to her. She told Graf that she didn't know at the time but had learned what the Jedi Master meant now. Windu told her that the decisions she made now are justs as important as the choices she made afterwards.

  2. 2.0 2.1 As shown in "The Lost Stories, Part 3," all the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics do not take place far apart from each other. "Tales from Wild Space: The Best Pet" depicts CR-8R being aware of the events following Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi, and "The Lost Stories, Part 1" features the First Order. The Star Wars Book places The Last Jedi to 34 years after Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and the fall of the First Order to 35 years after A New Hope. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates A New Hope to 0 ABY, meaning that Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi takes place in 34 ABY, the First Order fell in 35 ABY, and the Star Wars Adventures: Tales from Wild Space comics take place some time in between those years.
  3. Tales from Wild Space: "A Small Push" features Mace Windu, who dies in 19 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas, placing Tales from Wild Space: "A Small Push" some time prior.
