"Bounty hunter = Terrin Sandafar // Terrin = born on Alderaan // Terrin = served in Republic army"
―T7-O1[1]

Terrin Sandafar was a female native of the planet Alderaan who served in the Republic Military for one year before becoming a bounty hunter. During the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the reconstituted Sith Empire, Sandafar was hired[1] by the husband of Senator Verre Sydia[3] to kill the Alderaanian noble Eckhorn Baliss[4] in 3663 BBY.[5] The husband was an Imperial spy,[3] and he had learned that his fellow spy Baliss had a list of Imperial traitors in the Republic.[4]

In 3653 BBY,[2] when Sydia's husband discovered that Shafu—an informant for Jedi Master Ven Zallow[6]—was investigating Baliss, he had Sandafar kill Shafu by detonating his ship above the moon Nar Shaddaa.[7] Sandafar was killed not long afterward by her employer in a rigged explosion on her own ship.[1] The Jedi Knight known as the Hero of Tython and Shafu's former partner, the astromech droid T7-O1, uncovered Sandafar's involvement[1] a decade later,[2] and traced her payments back to the Senator's husband.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Terrin Sandafar is mentioned in optional conversations with the Jedi Knight companion T7-O1 in the 2011 BioWare video game Star Wars: The Old Republic.[1] She was first mentioned, albeit indirectly, on T7-O1's page in the Biographies section of the game's official site, which featured an Aurebesh sentence that translated as "The Exploding Starships Conspiracy".[8]
