Vima Sunrider was a Human female Jedi Master active in the years following the Great Sith War.


A native of the planet H'ratth, Sunrider was the daughter of Jedi Knight Andur Sunrider and his Force-sensitive wife, Nomi Sunrider as a consequence, Sunrider was born with considerable Force potential. However, in 4,000 BBY, when Sunrider was still an infant, her father was killed by thugs on a delivery mission. Sunrider and her mother continued the trip without the slain Knight, delivering a shipment of Adegan crystals to the venerable Tchuukthai Jedi Master Thon on the planet Ambria. Thon took the two on as his Jedi apprentices, and the young Sunrider learned to control the Force in the ensuing years. During her training, Sunrider encountered many famous Jedi Masters, including the Krevaaki Vodo-Siosk Baas and the Draethos Odan-Urr, all of whom predicted that she would become a great Jedi Master.

Vima Sunrider grew up in very unstable times, and she was frequently separated from her mother, who went on to become a prominent Jedi Knight, as she was forced to attend to business in a particularly violent period in galactic history. Sunrider was put in danger several times in her childhood she was nearly kidnapped by a hostile war droid during a clash on Deneba, and was caught in the middle of battles on Ambria and Ossus but ultimately emerged unscathed.  As Sunrider grew older, her mother took over her Jedi training, although she was too busy with her expanded role in the Jedi Order's leadership to attend to her daughter. As a result, Sunrider, who desperately wanted to be a full-fledged Jedi, became extremely frustrated with Nomi. Things came to a head in 3,986 BBY, when Sunrider ran away from a Jedi conclave on Exis Station in order to find her own way to become a Jedi. Sunrider decided to seek out Ulic Qel-Droma, a once-famed Jedi Knight and lover of Nomi Sunrider who had been stripped of his connection to the Force after falling to the dark side and battling the Jedi during the Great Sith War about a decade prior.

She eventually found Qel-Droma on the remote planet Rhen Var and convinced the initially-reluctant former Jedi to take her on as an apprentice. Sunrider proved herself to be an exceptionally dedicated student, and constructed her first lightsaber during her tutelage under Qel-Droma the two grew to have an almost father-daughter relationship. However, Nomi found out about her daughter's training with Qel-Droma, and worrying for her daughter, tracked her down to Rhen Var. Also arriving on the world was the Cathar Jedi Sylvar, who had lost her mate Crado during the Great Sith War and desired revenge against Qel-Droma. Although Sunrider helped facilitate a peaceful solution between all the Jedi involved, Qel-Droma was shot in the back by a spacer named Hoggon, who wanted to be a hero for killing the man he saw as one of history's greatest war criminals. As Sunrider grieved, the mortally wounded Qel-Droma pronounced her to be a Jedi for the first time. Vima Sunrider went on to fulfill her potential by becoming a respected Jedi Master, and headed a long line of powerful women destined for greatness.
