"This holoprojection was a gift from Queen Ressa of Drezzi to thank Darth Nyriss for her merciful treatment of the royal family when the Empire conquered their world. Her husband was executed, but the queen and her children were spared."
―Sechel, to Scourge[src]

Ressa was the queen of the planet Drezzi for some time prior to the year 3954 BBY. After her homeworld was conquered by the Sith Empire, Ressa's husband was executed. She and her children were spared, however, by Sith Lord Darth Nyriss. Ressa gave a holoprojection as a gift to Nyriss for not killing her and her children. At a later time, Sith Pureblood Sechel told the story of Ressa to Sith Lord Scourge.


Ressa was a female individual who lived during the days of the Old Republic. She was the queen of the planet Drezzi for an amount of time[1] prior to the year 3954 BBY.[2] During Ressa's reign, her homeworld was conquered by the resurgent Sith Empire. After the Sith took the planet, Ressa's husband was executed. However, the lives of her and her children were spared by Sith Lord Darth Nyriss. In gratitude for Nyriss's actions, Ressa gave her a holoprojection as a gift. Sometime later, Sith Pureblood Sechel told Sith Lord Scourge the tale behind the holoprojection as Sechel took the latter to meet with Nyriss in her stronghold on the Sith world Dromund Kaas.[1]
