Description: Lop was a Force-sensitive Lepi female resident of the planet Tao during the Imperial Era. An orphan who was not originally from Tao, Lop was an enslaved laborer for the Galactic Empire, which had occupied the planet. After escaping the Empire, Lop was adopted by Boss YasaburĂ…ÂŤ of the powerful YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan at the insistence of his daughter, OchĂ…ÂŤ.
Years after Lop's adoption into the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan, YasaburĂ…ÂŤ and OchĂ…ÂŤ took opposite sides of a rebellion against the Empire. With her father supporting the insurgency and her sister opposed, Lop found herself trying to mediate between her family members. Ultimately, OchĂ…ÂŤ joined the Empire and YasaburĂ…ÂŤ trained Lop to use their family's lightsaber to confront OchĂ…ÂŤ.
Lop was a Lepi female born on a different planet than Tao. At some point in her early life, she was brought to Tao to work as a slave for the Galactic Empire. Lop eventually lost her parents, leaving her as an orphan. At some point, Lop gained a droid companion, TD-4.
Joining clan YasaburĂ…ÂŤ
During the Imperial Era, Lop and TD-4 fled to escape from slavery. She met a human father YasaburĂ…ÂŤ and his young daughter OchĂ…ÂŤ at a market. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ had a scar that had rendered one of his eyes blind. The humans saw the young Lepi attempting to steal fruit, and asked about Lop's origins and parents. After hearing Lop's stomach rumble from hunger, OchĂ…ÂŤ invited Lop to join their family, insisting that she could tell by looking at the Lepi that Lop was a good kid. OchĂ…ÂŤ enthusiastically took Lop in hand to play on the beach, guilting her father into adopting Lop. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ promised to clean Lop up and get her well-fed. TD-4 cut off Lop's shock collar, then recorded a hologram of the trio smiling on the beach.
Lop and OchĂ…ÂŤ came to regard each other as sisters. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ welcomed Lop as his daughter, and she referred to him as her father.
Seven years after joining the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan, an Imperial base on Tao was attacked. An explosion rocked the local town, and Lop woke up among smoke and debris from the destruction. Coming to, the Lepi donned her side glasses to view the wreckage in the infrared spectrum, before hearing OchĂ…ÂŤ confront YasaburĂ…ÂŤ over what had happened. OchĂ…ÂŤ asked their father what he had done, crying out that the town had been destroyed. After hearing OchĂ…ÂŤ's words, Lop expressed disbelief aloud that the explosion was her father's doing. She rushed over to a scene where YasaburĂ…ÂŤ and OchĂ…ÂŤ were fighting, surrounded by a crowd of affiliates of their clan.
OchĂ…ÂŤ expressed indignation that her father attacked the Imperial base, while YasaburĂ…ÂŤ justified his supported for the insurgency against the Empire on the grounds of the Empire polluting and pillaging their planet. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan members attempted to separate the quarreling father and daughter, saying they needed to flee before Imperial troops arrived. Upon seeing Lop approach, one clan member implored the Lepi to intervene. Lop begged her family members to stop, saying there was no reason for them to fight each other. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ silenced Lop, saying this was a problem for the head of the family. OchĂ…ÂŤ exhorted her father, claiming a right as the next head of family to assert her opinion. OchĂ…ÂŤ denounced her father's anti-Imperial views as "stubborn opposition to development" and wrong. The father and daughter continued to argue as Lop stood on. Imperial stormtroopers approached on speeder bikes, causing the crowd to flee.
Sisters and the Empire
Lop drove in a landspeeder with OchĂ…ÂŤ, telling her sister she ought to consider how Father felt about the Empire and their homeworld. OchĂ…ÂŤ doubted that YasaburĂ…ÂŤ would understand her opinion, but Lop said she wanted their family to stop fighting because they were family. Despite her origins offworld, Lop had come to feel at home on Tao and could relate to YasaburĂ…ÂŤ's animus for the Empire's degradation of their world's ecology. OchĂ…ÂŤ said she could relate as well, expressing her love for Tao and her father, and claiming that was exactly why she must support the Empire: "for the sake of our future."
Lop and OchĂ…ÂŤ were stopped at an Imperial roadblock on a bridge, where an Imperial officer stopped the sisters. The officer said he had been waiting for OchĂ…ÂŤ, leading Lop to question whether her sister knew the officer. The officer said he and OchĂ…ÂŤ knew each other well and that OchĂ…ÂŤ was "sensible enough" to see the many benefits the Empire could offer. He said OchĂ…ÂŤ had promised to stop the insurrection before it escalated, but she had failed. Lop, distraught, asked OchĂ…ÂŤ whether she had indeed tried to stop YasaburĂ…ÂŤ without even talking to him first. OchĂ…ÂŤ confirmed that, saying she couldn't "leave it up to" their father anymore. The officer then said the Empire would have to make life even more difficult for the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan. The officer asked OchĂ…ÂŤ to join the Empire's "redevelopment initiative," saying they could together put an end to the bloodshed. OchĂ…ÂŤ joined the officer, cutting her hair and leaving the long braid in Lop's hands.
After OchĂ…ÂŤ joined the Imperial troops, Lop jumped off the bridge with TD-4, sobbing and running away until she landed in the marketplace where she had met OchĂ…ÂŤ seven years prior. The Lepi kept running back to her mountain home at the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ household, where she found nearly all the clan employees gone. When she arrived home she asked about the whereabouts of her clan, YasaburĂ…ÂŤ replied that almost all the employees had fled, but first asked for paid time off. Lop's father asked where OchĂ…ÂŤ was. In response, the Lepi handed YasaburĂ…ÂŤ OchĂ…ÂŤ's hair braid and solemnly told her father that OchĂ…ÂŤ had joined the Empire. The family boss was saddened and angered to learn this. Lop explained that the Empire asked OchĂ…ÂŤ to try to talk him out of what they called his "terrorist plans," and that if OchĂ…ÂŤ failed, they would crack down on the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan.
Lop poured out her feelings to her father, expressing her desire to repel the Empire from Tao and rebuild their family. In response, her father escorted Lop to a candle-lit chamber deep within their home. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ apologized for seeming to favor OchĂ…ÂŤ over Lop. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ then began teaching Lop their family's history and performing a ritual of inheritance, naming Lop as his heir.
hundreds of years ago, a Jedi had come to Tao, settling on the planet and eventually dying there. Before he died, the Jedi encountered an ancestor of the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan to whom he entrusted his lightsaber and trained in lightsaber combat. Thereafter, the lightsaber became a YasaburĂ…ÂŤ family heirloom, being passed down through the generations of the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ family. Each family leader taught their successor lightsaber combat and passed the blade on as inheritance, representing the bond between parent and child. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ entrusted the saber to Lop, declaring her his successor as clan leader. Lop was humbled but respectfully accepted the honor. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ told his daughter that this might be the end of their family, but he was glad she was a part of it. He told Lop to wait at home while he tried to retrieve OchĂ…ÂŤ and repatriate her to the family. Before he left, Lop told her dad that OchĂ…ÂŤ still loved him, which consoled him.
Sister against sister
After some time waiting, Lop heard an explosion at the Imperial base. Lop mounted a speeder and rushed to the base. Eventually, Lop jumped off a bridge to avoid stormtroopers. After the speeder was destroyed, she and TD glided to the baseĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s interior via umbrella. Once inside, her presence distracted her dad, who got blinded by OchĂ…ÂŤ. Lop ran to YasaburĂ…ÂŤ's side, where he asked Lop to save her sister, and admitted his failure as OchĂ…ÂŤ's father. OchĂ…ÂŤ then angrily leapt to finish her father off, but was blocked by Lop wielding the heirloom lightsaber, surprising OchĂ…ÂŤ. YasaburĂ…ÂŤ explained to her that he passed it to his other daughter because of his belief that, when it comes to inheritance, there are more important things than blood. Angered even further, OchĂ…ÂŤ attacked Lop, who pleaded with her sister to return home. TD-14 projected the original hologram of their family taken just after Lop was adopted, but was cut down by OchĂ…ÂŤ. Saddened, but made more determined by the destruction of her droid, Lop vowed to bring her sisterĂ˘â‚¬â„˘s real self back while clashing with her. Lop used the Force to summon one of her father's daggers and destroyed OchĂ…ÂŤ's electric staff, before slashing at her sister, scarring Ocho's chest and knocking her off of the edge of the base. OchĂ…ÂŤ survived the blow and landed on an Imperial ship about to leave Tao. The sisters gave each other one last stare before the ship fled. Afterwards, Lop picked up TD-4Ă˘â‚¬â„˘s head which again projected the family hologram. As she watched the recording, she repeated the younger OchĂ…ÂŤ's hopes that one day they would be a proper family.
Personality and traits
Lop was highly empathetic. When OchĂ…ÂŤ and YasaburĂ…ÂŤ found themselves on opposite sides of the rebellion on Tao, affiliates of YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan called on her to mediate between her adopted sister and father. Lop asked OchĂ…ÂŤ to consider YasaburĂ…ÂŤ's feelings about the Empire and their homeworld, hoping to end the tensions within their family. Despite being born on another planet, Lop came to feel at home on Tao.
Powers and abilities
Even as a runaway slave, Lop was very nimble and agile, able to leap between walls of buildings to ascend and to jump down from great heights without getting hurt. She was skilled enough to escape Imperial slavery and avoid being caught by Imperial forces.
As a Force-sensitive, Lop was capable of using telekinesis. She did so when she called her father's dagger to her side while fighting OchĂ…ÂŤ. She became skilled with a lightsaber, as shown when she used the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ family heirloom lightsaber in her duel against OchĂ…ÂŤ.
Lop was given the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan lightsaber as her inheritance by her father YasaburĂ…ÂŤ, as part of the YasaburĂ…ÂŤ clan's tradition of passing the saber and lightsaber swordsmanship down through the generations. She also wore a set of side glasses which could pull up information or show her surroundings in the infrared spectrum, and wielded an umbrella that she could use to glide a short distance with.
