Mission Vao was a female Twi'lek street urchin from Taris who joined Revan in his quest for the Star Forge. She would later be known as one of the saviors of the galaxy and was awarded the Cross of Glory by the Republic.
She had an older brother, Griff Vao, who taught Mission how to survive the Lower City of Taris, however one day Griff abandoned his sister and left with another Twi'lek, Lena. Mission then joined the Hidden Beks, a swoop gang. Mission met and befriended Zaalbar, a Wookiee who was bullied by some Black Vulkar thugs. It was this companionship that led to her meeting with the amnesiac Revan.
