Semako Thalien was a business magnate who lived during the Mandalorian Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Mandalorian warrior culture. Thalien and a number of other wealthy businesspeople were aboard a refugee transport fleeing raiders when they crash-landed on the previously undiscovered planet of Makeb. Thalien assumed a leadership role among the survivors as they established settlements and made contact with the rest of the galaxy, and Thalien led the survivors in developing a thriving economy based on Makeb's rich mineral deposits within the next fifty years.
