Melina Carniss was a dark-haired Human dancer for Jabba Desilijic Tiure who also served as a secret security officer.

Biography

Carniss tried to arrest Mara Jade as Luke Skywalker first arrived at Jabba's Palace, thinking her to be part of a plot to assassinate Jabba.

Two years after the death of Jabba, she was recruited by Talon Karrde, but she became a spy of Ysanne Isard during the Bacta War of 7 ABY. Carniss provided information regarding a smuggling shipment in the Alderaan system, leading to an ambush by Captain Ait Convarion's Star Destroyer Corrupter. Fortunately, the attack was repulsed successfully by Wedge Antilles' group. Karrde discovered her treachery and wanted to eliminate her immediately. However, Booster Terrik managed, with difficulty and at great expense, to persuade Karrde to leave her alive long enough to use her to feed misinformation to Isard and ultimately set the stage for the Battle of Thyferra. She captained the YT-1210 freighter Empress's Diadem during the Bacta War.

Two years later, Karrde would encounter a woman named Celina Marniss (an anagram of Melina Carniss) who would, in fact, turn out to be Mara Jade. He hired her soon after he discovered this.

Melina Carniss was seen in Jabba's palace when the Max Rebo Band began playing. She had black hair and was in a white dress.
