Background: Rafa and her younger sister Trace lived on Level 1313 in the Coruscant underworld on the planet Coruscant. During Ziro the Hutt’s escape from the Republic’s Detention Center and Senate Building, a red-eyed alien shot at a transport’s engine, sending the ship spinning out of control. The Jedi diverted the transport away from a populated landing platform, but in doing so accidentally caused it to crash into the home of the Martez family instead. Rafa and her sister were saved by their parents; unfortunately, their parents were killed when the transport crashed. Afterwards, a female Jedi with green skin and dark robes visited Rafa and Trace, but instead of attempting to help the orphaned sisters, she told them that she needed to make a choice about the transport and that they shouldn’t worry, for the Force would be with them. The Jedi then departed, leaving Rafa and Trace, who had once regarded the Jedi as heroes, disillusioned and embittered against the Order.
Left to survive on their own with no help from anyone, Rafa became something of a guardians to Trace, and taught her that they could only rely on each other. Rafa soon became the owner of a hangar which she used as a front while doing illegal activities and a laundromat, while Trace became a mechanic as they worked together to make enough money to leave Coruscant and escape from the Clone Wars. Rafa also began making some debts with people like Pintu Son-El, much to Trace’s dismay.
Rafa was a human female with tan skin and brown eyes. Her brown hair was long on the right but shaven on the left side of her head.
Rafa borrowed money from criminals like Pintu Son-El and had the trouble to pay them back. Rafa was also a skilled manipulator as she was able to convince others to make deals with her. Despite her shady dealings, Rafa does it to provide for her sister and herself as she does care for Trace’s well-being.
As a result of the loss of their parents, Rafa became sort of a mother figure to Trace as she was protective of her and often told that they only had to rely on each other. Unlike Trace, Rafa was not open to people and did not trust anyone, even if they befriended her sister. Rafa was suspicious of Ahsoka Tano, suspecting she was hiding something from her and her sister. She was also willing to leave Tano behind while escaping from the Pykes, despite showing some concern for her. During and after their escape attempt, Rafa started to get along with Tano.
After the Jedi accidentally killed Rafa’s parents in the pursuit of Ziro the Hutt and did very little to comfort or help her and her sister afterwards, Rafa developed resentment towards the Jedi. After finding out Ahsoka Tano was a former Jedi Padawan, Rafa showed a viewpoint on how the Jedi should act through compassion and productiveness after seeing Tano helping her and Trace with the Pykes.
When taking up a deal with the Pyke Syndicate, Rafa believed when doing business, you don’t need to worry about any inflicted torture or death, but instead think about how better life is going to get when making money. However, after being recaptured by the Pykes, Rafa started to feel guilty for making a deal with the Pykes and eventually apologized to Trace and Ahsoka for putting them in danger.
Early in the Clone Wars, Trace lived with her sister, Rafa, along with their mother and father on the other side of the Level 1313 underworld portal. While in the underworld, the two sisters heard stories about the Jedi and grew to admire them.
