Luke/Mara is the pairing of Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade from the Star Wars Legends universe.

For anyone who’s never read any EU books, basically imagine crackship Luke Skywalker/Natasha Romanov as a slowburn enemies-to-allies-to-friends-to-lovers relationship, and that’s Luke and Mara in a nutshell.[1]


The original Star Wars Expanded Universe was considered canon for many years, until the "Star Wars" franchise was acquired by Disney in 2012. In 2014, Disney declared the entire Expanded Universe was renamed Star Wars Legends and considered non-canon. This included Mara and her relationship with Luke.

Fan Appeal

Anyway, Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade. Gosh, they’re so CUTE. I mean, pretty much even when Mara was all “IMMA KILL YOU” and Luke was like “Okay, but have you considered: you’re actually probably a decent person and I like you already?”[2]
