Here at Roqoo Depot, we are counting down the days to the release of Ewoks: Shadows of Endor. Written and drawn by Zack Giallongo with colors by Braden Lamb, this trade paperback comic leads directly in the events of Return of the Jedi and ties into the Ewoks television movies and series. To help get readers in the mood, we’ll be doing an Ewok of the day each day until the comic’s release. Today we’re highlighting Princess Kneesaa.

Princess Kneesaa a Jari Kintaka is the daughter of Chief Chirpa and Ra-Lee. Her younger sister is Asha. Ra-Lee was killed by a hanadak while Kneesaa was very young. At the time of the attack, Asha disappeared into the woods and was thought to be dead. In reality, she was found by a pack of korrinas and raised by them. Out in the wild, she preyed upon Dulok fur traders and was known as the Red Ghost. Eventually Kneesaa found her sister and was able to bring her back to Bright Tree Village. Later in life, Princess Kneesaa become Chieftainess of Bright Tree Village and married Wicket.

Princess Kneesaa appeared in issue #4 of the Droids comic series and in a dozen issues of the Ewoks comics, in the children’s books: How the Ewoks Saved the Trees: An Old Ewok Legend, The Baby Ewoks’ Picnic Surprise, Three Cheers for Kneesaa!: An Ewok Adventure, The Ewoks’ Hang-Gliding Adventure, Fuzzy as an Ewok, and in the short stories “Chief Chirpa Kidnapped!”, “The Ice Princess!” and “Return of the Great One!” which all appeared in the 1988 Marvel Ewoks Annual. She was also a regular on the Ewoks television show.

Ewoks: Shadows of Endor will be out on October 9, 2013.
