"Sandewar Mandewar. Leader of the Vex crusade, who—"
―"Lopset Yas" and Chelli Aphra[src]

Sandewar Mandewar was an alleged alien who was depicted by[1] the notorious doctor and smuggler[2] Cornelius Evazan, who was posing as a shapeshifter named "Lopset Yas" using a pluripleq, a rare bioengineered creature.[3] While pretending to show off his shape-shifting abilities to the rogue archaeologist Chelli Aphra[1] sometime between 0 ABY and 3 ABY,[4] Evazan impersonated Mandewar, describing him as the leader of the Vex crusade before Aphra cut him off. Evazan's depiction of Mandewar had blue eyes, brown skin, and a nose with a darker hue.[1]

Sandewar Mandewar appeared, through impersonation, in the comic Doctor Aphra (2016) 21, written by Si Spurrier, illustrated by Kev Walker, and published by Marvel Comics[1] on June 27, 2018.[5]

Additionally, the rebel base on Hoth is still intact during the events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 40, which takes place after Doctor Aphra 21. Since Galactic Atlas also places the destruction of the base in 3 ABY, the events of Doctor Aphra 21, where Sandewar Mandewar is impersonated, must have taken place sometime between 0 ABY and 3 ABY.
