The exact nature of Royalist sentiment varied. Some favored Talia personally, were loyal to her out of a sense of duty to the reigning monarch, or backed her position of keeping Onderon within the Republic.
Once the Onderon Civil War broke out, the Royalists managed a narrow victory in the Second Battle of Onderon. The Royalist cause emerged victorious thanks to Meetra Surik and some quiet backing from the Galactic Republic and even a surprise ally, the Mandalorians of Dxun.
Behind the scenesEdit
The Royalists are defeated in the Onderon Civil War if Meetra Surik sides with the Onderon separatists, and Onderon secedes from the Republic soon after.
Queen Talia either orders Vaklu to be executed on the spot for treason upon his surrender, or spares him to be jailed awaiting trial if Meetra Surik convinces her. If left to decide for herself, she will have him shot.
