- "I didn't see anything and you didn't see anything. Nobody saw anything, got it?"
- — Nova speaking to Tsiv
Elena Connor 14 ABY is a former student of Luke's Jedi temple. Abandoned from a young age Elena has had to endure many struggles to learn to become independent. As a result of her experiences growing up she has become rather cynical and jaded. Always ready with a snarky remark or comment and never afraid to speak her mind. Luke found her on the planet of Vorzyd V after she unsuccessfully tried to steal his lightsaber and sell it. Shortly after he brought her to his Jedi temple for training when he sensed her potential with the Force. Elena was eager to learn from her new master but never quite got over her cynical nature. She spent four years at the temple under Luke's tutelage and was a mere fourteen years of age when Ben Solo turned away from the light and slaughtered the other students. Somehow she managed to survive the attack and flee to the Outer Rim. There in order to survive she hid her identity, calling herself Nova and mixing herself up with a number of unsavory types. No matter how deep she got, however, she always managed to stay one step ahead thanks to her Jedi powers. It was in a casino on Canto Bight where she ran into Tsivoin Ulderis while cheating at dice. A chance encounter that was about to radically change her life...
- Alter Image: Nova has spent a great deal of time perfecting perfecting this technique. This power allows her to alter her features such as her height, weight, gender and even her voice. This technique becomes more difficult to use the less she knows about the person she's imitating and it's success rate wasn't always a guaranteed 100%. A Force-user skilled in telepathy has a chance to see through the disguise and at that point it becomes a contest of wills.
- Force Confusion: Nova found this technique to be highly useful in combat. If applied correctly she could manipulate an enemy to temporarily fight beside her as an ally. This technique is much easier to use and less time consuming than Force Persuasion.
- Force Flash: This power comes in handy whenever Nova needs to slip past security cameras without being noticed. A variant of Droid Disable this power allows her to temporarily disable a security holocam and slip past unseen. Another application of this power allows her to create an unnatural flash of bright light temporarily blinding her opponents.
- Force Persuasion: The so-called Jedi Mind Trick, Nova has spent many hours perfecting this technique and has been known to use it frequently. It's her go to backup plan whenever it seems like things aren't going her way.
- Force Stun: This is a particularly useful technique as it allows Nova to temporarily disable someone should they prove unusually resistant to her charms. This power deadens the senses and perceptions of a targeted enemy rendering them temporarily defenseless. Two more advanced versions of this technique include Force Stasis and Stasis field. The former puts an enemy into a near catatonic state while the latter will temporarily disable multiple enemies at once. So far Nova has only managed to successfully master the first variation of this technique.
- Telekinesis: Abbreviated TK, telekinesis is a neutral ability that most Force-sensitives have which allows Nova to move or otherwise manipulate physical matter in a variety of ways, all with the power of the Force. The ability is virtually ubiquitous among Force-sensitive individuals and organizations, though the techniques could differ greatly depending on the user. Telekinesis has a tremendous number of applications, both combative and utilitarian and Nova makes use of it frequently.
Form V: Shien / Djem So is the first lightsaber formed Nova learned under Luke's tutelage. Since lightsabers had become extremely rare in the time since the Galactic Republic her instruction mainly focused on Shien for its application in reflecting blaster bolts.
Form III: Soresu is a form of lightsaber combat that Nova had learned in secret. Over the years Luke Skywalker had collected many different Jedi artifacts including a holocron full of Jedi teachings. It was from this holocron that Nova secretly trained under its gatekeeper. A mysterious Jedi by the name of Ben.
