Tavion Axmis

"Ah, you must be the saber-wielding troublemaker who neutralized our perimeter guard. Are Jedi stretched so thin that Skywalker sends children to battle the Disciples of Ragnos?"
―Alora, when confronting Jaden Korr for the first time — (audio)Listen (file info)

Alora was a Lethan Twi'lek, apprentice to Tavion Axmis. She was active during the Disciples of Ragnos's quest to resurrect Marka Ragnos and was one of the most important, not to mention dangerous, members of the cult.

Biography

Alora on Hoth, seconds before her first encounter with Jaden Korr.

A Force-sensitive Twi'lek, Alora fell to the lure of the dark side and, like most Dark Jedi, met an early end.

After the defeat of Desann, Alora came under the tutelage of Tavion Axmis, Desann's former apprentice. Tavion taught Alora lethal skills in the dark side, focusing mainly on lightsaber combat and acrobatic techniques. Alora was a skilled acrobat and she used her stealth abilities to infiltrate Luke Skywalker's Jedi Academy on Yavin 4. Easily gaining access to the Jedi mainframes, she stole a list of areas strong in the Force so that her mistress Tavion could siphon the Force energies from there using the Scepter of Ragnos.

Jaden Korr was sent to Hoth to find out if the Force energy there had been siphoned or not and he found Imperials, one of the Disciples of Ragnos, and Alora herself, assisting and supervising the Imperials in their mission. Alora's Sith Cultist was helping her to send the information she and Tavion needed from Echo Base, but Jaden found and killed the cultist before all the data could be sent. Eventually, Jaden found and fought Alora, who was waiting in a hangar for the data transfer, unaware that the cultist was dead. The pair fought a fierce duel but Alora realized she couldn't gain the upper hand. She taunted Korr before she fled, angered that she could not beat the Jedi and determined to defeat him if ever they crossed paths again.

Jaden encountered her again on Taspir III while looking for Rosh Penin, who had renounced the dark side and was being held captive in the cult's large facility. Alora was at the facility ensuring that Rosh was secure and unable to escape. She was surprised when Korr showed up and after seeing him she proceeded to flee through the facility taunting the Jedi from various ledges and balconies until she reached the hangar, where Jaden found her along with Rosh. Jaden confronted Rosh, angered by his betrayal. Seeing his anger, Alora encouraged Jaden to slay Rosh and join them in the dark side. With telepathic help from his master, Kyle Katarn, Jaden let his anger dissipate. Realizing Jaden would not turn, the enraged Alora sliced off Rosh's arm with her lightsaber and confronted Jaden once again, fighting an epic duel. Even though she used the Jar'Kai fighting style this time and was even more powerful as she had completed her training, Jaden Korr called upon the power of the light side and struck her down. The overconfidence and arrogance she had inherited from Tavion was to be her downfall.

Abilities and traits

"Tavion has taught me many things as well. You sanctimonious fool!"
―Alora, when confronting Jaden Korr for the last time

Alora was flexible, agile, and feminine, and her acrobatic, graceful lightsaber styles reflected this. She focused on lightsaber combat, becoming skilled in the Fast style of the New Jedi Order and Jar'Kai. She was a very fast learner and picked up all that her mistress taught her very easily, becoming second only to Tavion in her skills. Alora focused more on the acrobatic and lightsaber sides of combat, becoming a lethally efficient combatant, and did not use dark side Force powers frequently, although she did demonstrate proficiency in the use of Force lightning.

Behind the scenes

In Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy Alora was voiced by Grey DeLisle. Alora is the only character in the game to have a different animation for Force jump. Hers is more of a forward cartwheel whereas the standard animation for all other characters is a somersault. She can also perform a unique saber throw, throwing both her lightsabers at the same time and has a different taunt animation, briefly levitating and spinning both her blades.

It should also be noted that the second Alora model used in Multi-player never actually appears in the Single-player campaign. Instead, when you meet Alora on Taspir, she wears the same attire as she did on Hoth.
