Ann Gella was a Rutian Twi'lek. She and her twin sister Tann were slaves owned by podracing champion Seculba, who purchased the pair at a party hosted by Jabba Desilijic Tiure. Her beauty garnered the attention of podracers Mars Guo and Teemto Pagalies, but she never seemed to notice them, regardless of their efforts surrounding the Boonta Eve Classic podrace. Mars Guo also tried to make a deal with Ann and plans to purchase her from Sebulba if the dinosaur-like pod racer wins the race, which he didn't.

When Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn needed peggats to make a bet with junk dealer Watto, Ann introduced herself to Jinn and offered to arrange a meeting with Jabba so the Jedi Master could lend money from him. Jinn agreed, and Ann lead him to Jabba's private box where Jinn was forced to engage Jabba's champion in combat in exchange for the money he needed. Shortly afterwards, Ann and her sister gave Sebulba a pre-race massage.
