“Even as the Force guides us, we cannot blindly follow. Even as the Ataru-swordmaster tells you to act on instinct, be wary that emotion and passion lead to the dark side.”
Denia was assigned to Cato Neimoidia where she would serve under High Council member Plo Koon during the battle for the planet. During the fighting, Denia was rendered unconscious on the battlefield after a Vulture droid crashed in close proximity to her. Her form was discovered by a general in the Separatist Army, who drugged her and had her body carried to a nearby palace. Not long after, the Clone Wars ended suddenly, with the slaughter of the Separatist Council and the reorganization of the Republic into the victorious Galactic Empire. On the losing end of the war, the Separatists fled the palace and Cato Neimoidia, leaving Denia in an artificial coma within its walls.
Soon after the end of the war, the palace that housed Denia was occupied by Darga the Hutt and his minions. Locating Denia, the Hutt decided to keep the middle-aged woman as a bargaining tool should need ever arise and had her moved to the subbasements where Igren Demos kept her comatose. During the months surrounding Darga’s reign in the palace, the player characters infiltrated Darga’s palace on assignment for Senator Bail Organa of the Imperial Senate. Reaching out to the rebels through the Force, Denia was able to direct them to her location despite being in a coma. Deactivating the machines keeping her in a coma, the rebels woke Denia, who thanked them for their assistance. Filling her in on the fall of the Republic and the dissolution of the Jedi Order, the group headed upstairs to find that Darga had fled upon news of Denia’s escape. Overhearing Demos’ conversation with an Imperial Inquisitorius member via a holocom, the group escaped the palace and took Denia to the Resurgence to receive medical treatment.
Aboard the ship, Denia was healed and approached by Senator Organa with the proposition of joining his secret movement known as the Alderaanian Resistance. Accepting the offer, Denia was determined to bring down Darga the Hutt and his devious plot known as the Sarlacc Project.
