Terna-Gentu was a Lanai female who lived in the Caretaker village on temple island on the planet Ahch-To. The group were responsible for the upkeep of the ancient Jedi village,[1] which was inhabited by the Jedi Master Luke Skywalker.[2]

In the year 34 ABY,[3] the scavenger Rey traveled to Ahch-To to recruit Skywalker to the Resistance and receive training from him. After Skywalker reluctantly agreed to train Rey, the student began sleeping in one of the stone huts of the Jedi village. After seeing a vision of her adversary Kylo Ren, Rey accidentally blew a hole in the side of the hut and then emerged to find Terna-Gentu and the other Caretakers outside. While two of the other Lanais fussed over trying to repair the hut, Terna-Gentu and another Caretaker[2] worked together to wash various items of clothing using a washstand, wash bucket and baleen-stripped washboard.[1]
