I know that in the pre-sith war era there was a famous jedi knight named nomi sunrider. i also heard a rumor that she has a descendant in the new republic (couldn't decide if i should put this in this forum or the NJO forum) is this so?

Yup, there's a descendant, found in the Dark Empire Comic. Her name is Vima-Da-Boda ( and that link will take you to some info. I'm sure the Unofficial Encyclopedia or the official site also has information.

I can elaborate a bit. Vima-Da-Boda was a great Jedi Knight around the time of the Rise of the Empire. When the Emperor came to power, Vima fled to Nar Shaddaa and disappeared into the lower levels. Her isolation eventually drove her somewhat insane and she was something like 160 years old when Leia stumbled onto her... I think it was Leia...been a long time...

yeah it was leia who bumped into her. i think it was in like the second or third issue of the dark empire 2. also after empire's end she just upped and dissapeared so noone knows if she died or what.

I was under the impression that Vima wasn't a descendant, she was just a Padawan...

Vima is listed everywhere I can find information her, including the Unofficial Star Wars Encyclopedia (http://www1.theforce.net/cuswe/categories.asp?page=56&category=1&type=1&qualifier=&no=100) as Nomi's Descendant. Also, a good write-up of her is in the Dark Empire Sourcebook by WEG, on pages 61-62. Hmm... I may have to do a conversion of her...

Actually, the reason Vima left was because she was shamed when her daughter fell to the dark side. She went after her daughter and just never returned, then the purges came and she lost herself in the underbelly of Nar Shadda.
