Bio: The implied love interest of Wicket, this Ewok made history by becoming the first female heir-apparent to the Ewok village. There was initially much opposition to the idea of Chief Chirpa designating her his eventual replacement. However, in a battle against Captain Krag and his Zorbian Space Pirates, she led the women of the village to a victory which the men could not achieve. Having shown her mettle in battle, the men of the village relented, and she soon transcended her title to become an active force within the day-to-day affairs of the village.
She took office as leader of Bright Tree Village upon her father's death. The induction ceremony doubled as her wedding to Wicket.
Notes: If we take the Ewok series to be "Star Wars Light", Kneesaa is pretty obviously the "Leia" of the piece.
