|Xina and her parents came to Tatoonie when she was eight years old, to escape the rise of the Empire. Her father Kib, once a proud Republic pilot who had served in the Clone Wars, began working as a smuggler working for the Desilijic hutt clan. Her mother Elle began a school in Mos Espa. When Xina was nineteen her father’s ship was shot down by Imperial ships, leaving behind a large debt to his employer Jabba the Hutt. To pay off the debt Xina began working as a smuggler herself; having learned her piloting skills from her father.
