Description: Numa was a Twi'lek female who lived on the planet Ryloth during the Clone Wars. As a youngling, she befriended two Republic clone troopers, "Waxer" and "Boil," during the Separatist invasion of her homeworld. In the years that followed under the reign of the Galactic Empire, Numa joined a rebel cell that operated on Ryloth under the command of Cham Syndulla.
Three years before the Battle of Yavin, Numa had become one of Cham Syndulla's best fighters in the Free Ryloth movement. She and Gobi Glie accompanied Cham on a mission to rendezvous with the Spectres, another rebel cell that was led by Cham's daughter Hera Syndulla. After docking their Nu-class attack shuttle with the rebel ship Ghost, Numa and her comrades attended a briefing with the Spectres to discuss a plan to take out an Imperial Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier orbiting Ryloth. Since the fighter carrier housed TIE/sa bombers that devastated Ryloth, Cham advocated destroying the ship to demonstrate the strength of the Ryloth rebels.
However, Hera disagreed with her father's plan and advocated stealing the cruiser-carrier for the rebellion. After a heated discussion, Cham reluctantly conceded to Hera's plan. In secret, Cham still intended to destroy the Imperial cruiser-carrier and instructed Numa and Gobi to bring a bag of detonators. During the journey to Ryloth, Numa and her Twi'lek comrades pretended to befriend the Spectres. After landing a stolen TIE bomber in the Imperial cruiser carrier, the Ryloth rebels put their plan into action. Under Cham's orders, Numa and Gobi stunned the rebels Ezra Bridger, Sabine Wren, Kanan Jarrus, and Garazeb Orrelios while Cham dealt with Hera and her astromech droid Chopper.
After exiting their TIE bomber, Numa and her companions dispatched a squad of stormtroopers that had been sent to the hangar bay. While Cham proceeded to disable the ship's hyperdrive, Numa and Gobi headed with their detonators to the munitions rack. Shortly later, they were caught up in a gun battle with stormtroopers. Two of the Spectres, Sabine and Zeb, managed to overpower Numa and Gobi by using a rigged mouse droid to stun them. The two rebels then secured their Twi'lek prisoners while the other four rebels convinced Cham to abandon his plan to destroy the Imperial cruiser-carrier.
While Hera reasoned with her father, Sabine played the recording to Numa and Gobi in an effort to convince them to join forces. After several Imperial reinforcements and TIE bombers attempted to reclaim the cruiser-carrier, Numa and Gobi joined forces with Sabine and Zeb in repelling the Imperial forces. In the end, the two rebel forces managed to hijack the Imperial ship and escape the Ryloth system. While leaving, they destroyed an Arquitens-class command cruiser, which boosted the morale of the Ryloth rebels. Having established a working relationship with the rebellion, Numa and her Twi'lek comrades then departed on their shuttle back to Ryloth.
Two years before the Battle of Yavin, a new Imperial commander named Grand Admiral Thrawn took charge of the Imperial counterinsurgency campaign against the Free Ryloth movement. By studying Twi'lek culture, art, philosophy, and history, Thrawn was able to devise tactics which led to the capture of Tann Province; the home of Syndulla clan. While Numa and Cham were riding their blurrg mounts to rendezvous with Hera's crew and Gobi, they were pursued by several Imperial scout troopers and an Imperial Troop Transport. Numa and Cham managed to fight off their pursuers long enough for the Ghost to come and pick them up.
Once aboard, Numa along with Cham and Zeb knocked out a scout trooper who had climbed aboard the vessel. Later, Numa attended a briefing where Cham outlined the recent events to Hera and her crew. When Ezra asked what a kalikori was, Numa explained that it was a Twi'lek heirloom that was valuable to Hera's family. Numa, Gobi, Cham, and the other rebels volunteered to take part in a mission to recover Hera's Kalikori from the Syndulla residence, which had become the new Imperial headquarters.
For the mission, Numa and the other rebels staged a diversionary attack on an Imperial patrol in the Tulara Ravine while Hera, Ezra, and Chopper went to recover the Kalikori. After destroying a troop transport and an AT-DP walker, the rebels fled into the wilderness but were pursued by a second walker. Following a gun battle, Thrawn's second in command Captain Slavin contacted the two rebel cells to inform them that he had captured Hera and Ezra. He threatened to execute the prisoners if Cham failed to surrender by dawn.
After Cham agreed to surrender in return for his daughter and Ezra's lives, Numa and the other rebels traveled to the Syndulla residence in the Ghost. Cham was about to proceed with the exchange when Hera ordered Chopper to detonate several explosives. This knocked out the Imperial forces and allowed all of the rebels to escape. However, they failed to recover the Kalikori which was taken by Thrawn to add to his art collection. Numa and Gobi later mingled with the other Spectres while Hera reaffirmed her love for her father, Kanan, and her crew.

You got Numa listed in the Creatures section instead of the Characters section. You've done this before.
