*: Although Kanata chose not to train as a Jedi, she had a strong connection to the Force, giving her the preternatural gift of sensing changes of fortune throughout the galaxy. Kanata's powers also allowed her to feel the presence of others, demonstrated when she sensed Solo's return.


Equipment:  Blaster Rifle 5D, Jet Pack (20 charges, 100m/charge), Ocular Goggles (+1 to spot details), Starships (The Stranger's Fortune and the Epoch Swift), wroshyr wood curio box (containing Anakin Skywalkers Lightsaber, a four-thousand-year-old hyperspace sextant, a fusioncutter head, and a diatium power cell),  a bust of Cherff Maota (a Jedi Master of old),  variable lens corrective goggles, silver-buckled belt suspended an assortment of technology (including a compact blaster pistol), a beaded necklace and a large number of rings and bracelets such as the Bracelet of the Sutro

Description: Maz Kanata was a Force-sensitive humanoid female who was born over a millennium before the brewing war between the First Order and the Resistance. Living in an ancient castle on the planet Takodana, Kanata gained a reputation as a "pirate queen" by allowing traveling smugglers to reside in her home—as long as they honored her prohibitions against politics and war. Kanata spent centuries traveling the galaxy, collecting antiques and trinkets which she kept inside the storehouses and vaults of her castle. One notable item was the lightsaber crafted by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars, and later wielded by Skywalker's son, Luke, who was instrumental in toppling the Galactic Empire.

Thirty years after the Empire's defeat at the Battle of Endor, the smuggler Han Solo brought Rey, a scavenger from the desert planet Jakku, to Kanata's castle. Kanata took interest in the girl, and when the Skywalker lightsaber called out to Rey through the Force, the smuggler queen told the scavenger to keep the weapon. Rey refused, however, and the human fled the castle, shortly before stormtroopers of the First Order arrived looking for her. During the ensuing battle, Kanata's castle was destroyed, and Rey was taken prisoner, so Kanata entrusted the lightsaber to Finn, a former First Order stormtrooper who abandoned his previous occupation, choosing to help the Resistance.

Personality and traits
Kanata was a humanoid alien who stood at a height of 1.24 meters (4 feet and 1 inch). She had brown eyes, wispy white hair, and burnt-orange skin, and her face was wrinkled by centuries of hearty laughter and kind smiles. Due to the pirate's millennia-long lifespan, decades were like brief moments in time for her.

As a poet and painter, Kanata took delight in all forms of art, so she offered board to traveling musicians in exchange for their performances. One such musician was Infrablue Zedbeddy Coggins, an alien who played the hypolliope horn cluster in a quartet alongside Taybin Ralorsa, Ubert Quaril, and Sudswater Dillifay Glon. Kanata also allowed a variety of scoundrels to stay in her castle, but only if they obeyed her prohibitions against war and politics, as well as her only spoken rule: "All are welcome. (No fighting.)," a mantra written in a hundred different languages on a wall beyond her bar. Individuals who broke the castle law were subjected to Kanata's sentences, which ranged from being locked in her dungeon to potentially being ejected from the airlock of the Tua-Lu. The hostess took a liking to one particular scoundrel, the Wookiee Chewbacca, whom she jokingly referred to as her boyfriend.

Powers and abilities
From her castle, Kanata witnessed the rise and fall of galactic powers, which she attributed to the delicate balance between the light and dark sides of the Force. Although Kanata chose not to train as a Jedi, she had a strong connection to the Force, giving her the preternatural gift of sensing changes of fortune throughout the galaxy. Kanata's powers also allowed her to feel the presence of others, demonstrated when she sensed Solo's return.

In addition to speaking Galactic Basic, Kanata could speak an alien dialect.

Spending centuries of her life traveling the galaxy, Kanata owned many starships, including the Tua-Lu—also known as the Stranger's Fortune—and the Epoch Swift. Duing her travels Kanata collected countless antiqued trinkets and treasures, notably including Skywalker's lightsaber. She stored the lightsaber in an ancient, unlocked wroshyr wood curio box, along with her other dearest treasures: a four-thousand-year-old hyperspace sextant, a fusioncutter head, and a diatium power cell. The box was kept behind the closed door of a basement storeroom, a vault which also contained a bust of Cherff Maota, a Jedi Master of old.

Kanata's millennia-old castle was located on the edge of a primordial forest along the shore of Nymeve Lake, a freshwater body and battle site between ancient Sith and Jedi. The stone fortress had a trapezoidal architecture, considered both impressive and beautiful. Despite the castle's age, it was modernized with sensor arrays and communications gear that allowed its owner to stay connected with the rest of the galaxy. Kanata enjoyed the technological contrast between her castle and the surrounding forest, and she viewed it as the manifestation of a cosmic balance. Towers of the castle also held prayer flags hung by deep-space explorers, and the entrance to Kanata's castle was adorned with various flags and banners which represented hundreds of cities, civilizations, and guilds; among them were a flag of the Ohnaka Gang, the emblem of the Broken Horn Syndicate, Mandalorian war banners, and podracing pennants (including those used by Anakin Skywalker and the Dug Sebulba during the Boonta Eve Classic). Directly above the sectioned metal door was a towering statue of the pirate queen with her arms outstretched, a gift from Kanata's former husband.

The smuggler dressed practically, and at the time of Solo and Rey's visit Kanata wore clothes she knitted herself: colorful socks, baggy maroon pants held by a leather belt, a dark gray vest over a blue-green sweater, and a simple gray cap. Attached to Kanata's cap were large, variable lens corrective goggles, and her silver-buckled belt suspended an assortment of technology, including a compact blaster pistol. The pirate also wore a beaded necklace and a large number of rings and bracelets, such as the Bracelet of the Sutro.
