Thune was a female bounty hunter who owned and operated the starship Faceted. As a youth, she had hoped to one day enroll in the Imperial Academy and serve the Galactic Empire with honor, but her hopes were dashed as she was continually passed over in favor of men. Disillusioned, she became an unscrupulous bounty hunter, surrounding herself with a crew and equipping the Faceted with highly advanced technologies. Thune took several bounties for the Galactic Empire, and after killing Alderaanian businessman Deckland Carper, she inherited his protocol droid, U-THR. She did her utmost to make sure that no record was kept of her past or her movements, and made sure to dress in a casual, unassuming fashion, setting her apart from her more recognizable contemporaries.
