Affiliation

Sisterhood of the Beatific Countenance[1]

Seib Nod was a Lorrdian member of the Sisterhood of the Beatific Countenance on Lorrd. A lifelong member, she grew bored of her cloistered lifestyle, and opted for a life of crime instead. Stealing valuable artifacts from her temple, she fled Lorrd, and went to Coruscant, where she intended to sell the stolen items. She found a buyer in archaeologist Artuo Pratuhr.

Pratuhr and his assistant, Zey Nep, met with Nod at the Outlander Club in 22 BBY. The archaeologist was initially wary of Nod's intentions, but the Lorrdian was able to convince him that she was acting on behalf of the Sisterhood in selling the items. Once he had handed over his money, she decided to double-cross him, and left with both the items and the credits. She was later apprehended by Pratuhr and Nep, and given a long sentence in CoCo Penitentiary.

Biography

A female Lorrdian from Lorrd, Seib Nod was a lifelong member of the Sisterhood of the Beatific Countenance. As such, she was forced to live in a cloistered fashion, which soon bored her. With no funds whatsoever, she realized that in order to start a new life for herself, she would have to procure them from somewhere. Not caring how she went about it, Nod stole several valuable artifacts from her temple, and departed Lorrd post haste, for the galactic capital of Coruscant. There, she continued to wear her religious fatigues to mask her criminal intentions.[1]

Intending to pawn the stolen relics, she was contacted by Artuo Pratuhr, an archeologist who wanted to buy them for the Galactic Museum. Nod met with Pratuhr and his assistant, Zey Nep, at the Uscru Entertainment District's Outlander Club in 22 BBY, at the height of the Separatist Crisis.[1][2][3] Initially, the archeologist was suspicious of Nod's intentions, but she claimed that the Sisterhood was selling the items to raise desperately needed funds. The clandestine nature of the sale was to conceal the fact that the Sisterhood was in such financial trouble that it needed to sell the relics in the first place.[1]

Prathur agreed to the deal, but the criminal atmosphere of Galactic City caused Nod to make a snap judgment—drawing a blaster on the archeologist, she took his money, and fled the Outlander Club for an outbound flight. While waiting at the dock, Nod was confronted by Prathur, who caught up to her. She did not feel threatened, however—she was armed, he was not. What Nod had not accounted for was the presence of Nep, who, standing behind her and disguised as a refugee, had her own blaster trained on her. Realizing that her plans were thwarted, she returned the money. Prathur then took her to the local authorities, and returned the relics to the Sisterhood. Nod was then incarcerated in CoCo Penitentiary for a considerable amount of time, during which she was pardoned by the Sisterhood for her crimes.[1]

Personality and traits

Although the Sisterhood of Beatific Countenance required lifelong servitude, Seib Nod did not find her servitude spiritually fulfilling in the slightest, and so, due to her boredom, sought out more material possessions. She was desperate enough to break free of her situation by turning to crime as a way of raising money for herself. Once she had committed one criminal act, she was prone to lying to others, and she found herself so changed by her one act that she felt free to perform another. When she was jailed, she was at such a point that the forgiveness of her fellow Sisters meant nothing to her.[1]

Behind the scenes

The character of Seib Nod first appeared, unnamed, in the 2002 film by George Lucas, Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, during the Outlander Club scene. In 2004, the character was given the name "Seib Nod" in the article "Who's Who in the Outlander Club: It's Ladies' Night," which was published in Star Wars Insider 75, and written by Daniel Wallace. The name itself is a tuckerization special effects artist Don Bies, spelled backwards.

In Trisha Biggar's Dressing a Galaxy: The Costumes of Star Wars, published in 2005, the same character was identified as "Seib Nob." Further complicating matters was Steven J. Sansweet and Pablo Hidalgo's Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels, published twenty-six days after Biggar's book. Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels identified the character as "Nob Sieb," leading "What's the Story?" author Tim Veekhoven, the following year, to ask continuity editor Leland Chee as to what the true spelling was. Chee identified it as "Seib Nod," the original designation given by Wallace.[4]

The character's story was later fleshed out by Benjamin Christopher Norton Dawe, writing as "Captain Yossarian," through StarWars.com's Hyperspace feature, "What's the Story?"
