The Coruscant Outlander Club scene in Attack of the Clones pays
homage to the cantina scene shown in the original Star Wars movie. As in
the cantina scene, the nightclub scene is
filled with a variety of
unknown characters. One of these characters is a female Twi'lek named
"Ayy Vida is just one of many beautiful female Twi'leks that can be found in the entertainment
district of Coruscant. Her mottled stripes set her apart from the more uniformly pigmented examples of her species.
Ayy Vida's life, like an unfortunate number of young female Twi'leks, has been tainted by the criminal underworld.
She has long been a consort of Hat Lo, a local crime boss with delusions of grandeur.
In truth, Hat Lo is little more than an errand boy for the wealthy and
powerful Hutts. She would have fled from him, were it not for her fear of Tas Kee, Hat Lo's female Weequay enforcer.
One night, at the Outlander Club, she locked eyes with a rather dapper
Republic Guard, Lt. Daniel Faytonni. She may have entertained thoughts of
a hero coming to rescue her from the rough life, but this guard was
nothing more than a con-artist in an official's uniform. Vida is a known
acquaintance of such nightclub patrons as Achk Med-Beq, and the purple
Twi'lek, Lunae Minx."
