Description: OchÅ was a human female who lived on the Outer Rim planet Tao during the Imperial Era, and the daughter of a powerful crime family. Her father was YasaburÅ. As a child, OchÅ formed a close bond with a Lepi orphan and slave named Lop and convinced her father to adopt the Lepi girl.
Much of Tao's population rebelled against the Galactic Empire in response to perceived Imperial oppression. OchÅ's father YasaburÅ supported the rebellion, but OchÅ joined the Empire.
OchÅ was a human female from the resource-rich planet Tao, located in the Outer Rim Territories. She was born into a clan and crime family led by her father YasaburÅ, who had the title "Boss".
One day at a market, OchÅ and YasaburÅ encountered a runaway Lepi slave and orphan named Lop attempting to steal fruit to eat. YasaburÅ asked the Lepi where her parents were, to which Lop responded that they were gone. Lop's stomach rumbled with hunger, and OchÅ enthusiastically suggested they adopt her into their family. Her father cajoled OchÅ for loudly expressing sympathy for an escaped Imperial slave within earshot of Galactic Empire personnel, but OchÅ appealed to YasaburÅ's strong sense of morality to take the Lepi girl in. OchÅ insisted she could tell Lop was a good kid and escorted her to play at the beach, at which point YasaburÅ acquiesced to adopting Lop and raising her as his own daughter. Lop's droid companion TD-4 proceeded to free the Lepi from her shock collar and took a family photo of Lop, OchÅ, and YasaburÅ.
Imperial base attacked
Seven years after Lop joined the YasaburÅ clan, an explosion at Tao's Imperial base destroyed much of the local town, leaving flames and smoke rising from the destruction. OchÅ confronted her father in indignation for supporting the attack. YasaburÅ denounced the Empire for its treatment of their homeworld and its environment, people, and resources, insisting locals must take action against the Empire to show they would not accept such treatment. Affiliates of the clan implored the father and daughter to stop arguing and flee before Imperial stormtroopers arrived. At that moment, Lop reached the commotion, and a clan member begged her to mediate between OchÅ and YasaburÅ.
OchÅ scolded her father as the attack had injured people including members of their own family. Lop begged her sister and father to cease fighting, but YasaburÅ insisted this was a matter for the head of the family and commanded Lop to remain silent. OchÅ insisted on making herself clear as the next head of family, insisting that YasaburÅ's "stubborn" opposition to development was "wrong." She asserted that Tao needed the Empire to fuel its economic growth, to which her father retorted that Tao had long survived without assistance from the Galactic Republic. YasaburÅ asked why that should change now, and why they should "throw themselves at [the Empire's] feet" while it continued military buildup on Tao. He asked how OchÅ would feel if the Empire turned their world into a war zone, saying that if she wanted to lead the family, she should want to drive the Empire out. OchÅ angrily insisted that the Empire was the only hope for their planet to develop and progress, whether or not a war should occur. Her father labeled the Empire's "support" for Tao as a euphemism for taking control. At that moment, Imperial stormtroopers neared the scene, and most of the gathered crowd fled. YasaburÅ decried the fleeing people as fools, expressing belief in Tao residents' "duty" to protect the planet; a duty which had been passed down for generations.
Lop drove in a landspeeder with OchÅ, telling her sister she ought to consider how Father felt about the Empire and their homeworld. OchÅ insisted that she had a responsibility as YasaburÅ's heir to turn to the Empire for the sake of their future. As the pair approached an Imperial roadblock, OchÅ affirmed that she knew how to take care of their household. The young women were stopped at the roadblock, where an Imperial officer greeted OchÅ, saying he had been waiting for her. The officer revealed that OchÅ had agreed to negotiate on her father's behalf to prevent the insurrection on Tao from occurring, but had failed to prevent violence. Lop, distraught, asked OchÅ whether she had indeed tried to stop YasaburÅ without even talking to him first. OchÅ confirmed that, saying she couldn't "leave it up to" their father anymore and that he was "blinded" by his idealism.
The officer said that, since OchÅ could not keep the YasaburÅ clan under control, the Empire would have to make life even more difficult for them. OchÅ apologized to the officer, taking full responsibility and insisting that she would either persuade or force her father to stop the violence. He invited OchÅ to accompany him and his stormtroopers for the Empire's "redevelopment initiative" an ally to the Empire, imploring her to help him end the bloodshed. Lop begged her sister not to go, saying it would break their father's heart. Nevertheless, OchÅ bit her thumb, smeared her blood by her eyes as makeup, cut her hair, and joined the Empire. Lop held her sister's braid of hair as OchÅ departed with the Imperial forces.
Personality and traits
OchÅ had a strong degree of sympathy for Lop when she met the Lepi as a runaway slave and orphan.
Seven years later, OchÅ believed the Galactic Empire was necessary to promote development on her homeworld of Tao, and opposed her father's support for the local rebellion against the Empire. Nevertheless, she loved her father and her homeworld.
