Kaylah Taprish was a female scientist who lived on the planet Makeb more than a hundred years after the Mandalorian Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian warrior culture. Taprish took a liking to the native and nearly-extinct vrake, the distinctive head crest and pattern of which reminded her of her favorite uncle, and spent five years studying and crossbreeding them. Taprish then released a dozen new colonies into the wild, restoring their population, though the vrakes soon became fiercely territorial.
Behind the scenesEdit
Kaylah Taprish was first mentioned in the Codex entry for the vrake in Star Wars: The Old Republic: Rise of the Hutt Cartel, a 2013 Digital Expansion released for the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic.
