Shae Vizla was a female Mandalorian bounty hunter commonly employed by the Sith Empire for large risky undertakings. She joined the Sith Fleet in the Sacking of Coruscant and the subsequent Invasion of the Jedi Temple, a move by the Sith to cripple the Galactic Republic and their Jedi and assert the dominance of the Sith in the galaxy.
Attack on Coruscant
Main article: Sacking of Coruscant
In 3,681 BBY, the Sith Empire, believed to have been destroyed over a millennium earlier, emerged from seclusion and launched a campaign against the Galactic Republic. Twenty-eight years after the war's beginning, the Sith forces contacted the Republic, expressing a desire to negotiate a peaceful resolution to the war. As delegates from both sides met on the planet Alderaan to form a peace agreement, the Sith mounted a surprise attack on Coruscant, the Republic's capital to force the Republic into signing the Treaty of Coruscant.
Battle in the Jedi Temple
While the Sith Lord Darth Angral led a planetary assault and eliminated the Republic's Chancellor, Shae Vizla assisted with the Invasion of the Jedi Temple. Accompanying Darth Malgus, the leader of the invasion, and Eleena Daru, she was positioned on a balcony above the entrance to the Temple as the Sith approached.
As the Sith was confronted by several Jedi, the bounty hunter entered the temple on a higher level. Quickly eliminating several guards, she made her way to the floor where the Sith was being confronted by a Jedi. At this time, a shuttle crashed through the Temple's main entrance carrying numerous Sith. As the Jedi and Sith battled one another, the bounty hunter assisted in the battle by killing a large number of the Temple Security Force.
Armor and equipment
Shae Vizla's armor was of a design similar to that of the Mandalorians. She utilized a jetpack, and her gauntlets contained holographic displays as well as flamethrowers and explosive rocket launchers. In addition, she also carried blasters.
Behind the scenes
Shae Vizla first appeared in the "Deceived" trailer for the upcoming video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. In the trailer, the character has no lines of dialogue, the only character speaking throughout the entire trailer being Darth Malgus. She has only appeared in this trailer so far. Although her rank as a bounty hunter was never stated in the article, she wears the armor assigned to the bounty hunter class in the game.
The character remained initially largely nameless until an update on the The Old Republic website featuring a statue of the bounty hunter along with her name.
