Star Wars: the Old Republic, Fragile Hope
Fleet Commander of Aopey Ozath
Distinguishing Characteristics: Shae is very attractive, but few are foolish enough to forget that she is a dangerous adversary. She has built a fearsome reputation with her martial prowess and cunning.
Shae Vizla was a Human Mandalorian female who lived during the Great Galactic War and the subsequent Cold War that resulted from the peace established between the two warring factions, the Galactic Republic and the resurgent Sith Empire. Working as a bounty hunter, Vizla was often employed by the Sith Empire, who made use of her martial skills when undertaking the most risk-intensive missions. Shae Vizla was part of the Imperial force charged with attacking the planet of Alderaan, and later launched a strike on a Republic political envoy. During the assault, Vizla’s brother was killed by the Jedi Master Aurei Eadon, and Vizla subsequently developed an intense hatred for the Jedi Order.
When the Empire elected to mobilize an attack on the galactic capital world of Coruscant, Vizla was contracted to disable the planet’s defense grid, located within the Jedi Temple. In conjunction with a frontal assault by the Sith Lord Darth Malgus, Vizla infiltrated the Temple, proceeding to kill several members of the Temple Security Force during the resultant battle between the assailing Sith warriors and the defending Jedi Knights. She successfully completed her mission to disable the defense grid, allowing Darth Angral’s Sith armada to strike at Coruscant, and when the attack was over and the Jedi defeated, Vizla briefly lingered until receiving the professional approval of Lord Malgus. She then utilized her jetpack to fly away from the Temple.
Vizla was later recruited by Aopey to command her fleet for the New Order. Shae was hard-pressed to work for Jedi, because of her brother’s death and the growing hatred she harbors for the order. Shae was given assurances by Aopey that the New Order was nothing like its predecessors and she would have a place of honor, not only as the commander of her fleet, but also with the Mandalorian Empire and its unique position of power in the universe. Aopey and Commander Vizla have become very close friends—each have something to offer the other.
