Mara Jade-Skywalker is the only EU character to appear in the Virtual Sequels. The original intent of the projects was to make Episodes 7-9 as if George Lucas himself was behind them. It was decided early on that he wouldn't intentionally go against the EU, but that he wouldn't use elements from it either - unless absolutley unavoidable. Coruscant, for instance, was to be named Had Abbadon, but when it came time to visit the planet in Episode 1, Lucas decided to keep the name that had already been established for five years at that point. Since Episodes 7-9 would deal with Luke's family, it was felt that fan-favorite Mara Jade should be part of the story. Mara is a Mara head on an Adi Gallia body, and I'm not quite sure where the hands come from. I didn't have the correct green color for her boots, so I left them red and changed the color in Photoshop. While I was digitally enhancing the figure, I also added some wrinkles and drooped the skin a bit. As one VS fan once exclaimed as art work of Mara was first released - "She looks so old!" She, like Luke, is in her 60's at this point, so that's more or less correct.
