Day 20 – Cindel Towani
Cindel Towani was the main chracter of two (now considered Legends) TV movies that took place on Endor. Caravan of Courage: An Ewok Adventure debuted in 1984 (a year after the release of Return of the Jedi). A year later in 1985 Ewoks: The Battle for Endor premiered.
In Caravan of Courage Cindel (played by Aubree Miller) and her brother Mace spent most of the movie trying to reunite with their parents after a starcruiser crash on Endor. Not surprisingly the Ewoks help the kids find their parents.
In Ewoks: The Battle for Endor Cindel played an even bigger role after Sanyassan Mauraders attacked an Ewok village and killed her brother and parents. (I did not remember these movies being so dark.)
Cindel ends up leaving Endor and the Ewoks (why?!?!?!) and grows up to be a journalist on Coruscant. Read more about Cindel on her Wookieepedia page.
Cindel was also the focus of a fun fan theory that she could be part of the origin story for Phasma.
