LADY PROXIMA (STAR WARS: SOLO)
SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY
Lady Proxima was a Grindalid female crime boss who operated out of a lair on Corellia during the Imperial Era. She was the leader of the White Worms, a group that took in young Corellians and gave them food and shelter in exchange for their participation in criminal activities on Lady Proxima’s behalf. Han Solo and Qi’ra were two of those children.
Grindalids were a worm-like sentient species with skin that burned when exposed to sunlight. During the Imperial Era, the Grindalid Lady Proxima resided on the planet Corellia, commanding the White Worms. Han Solo exploited her vulnerability to light in order to escape the lair.
