- "T7 = confused // Senator Sydia = strong opponent of Empire // Sydia = not logical traitor"
Verre Sydia was a female Senator who served Galactic Republic through the Great Galactic War and Cold War with the Sith Empire. A fierce opponent of the Empire, Sydia unknowingly married an Imperial spy, but her husband's allegiance was later discovered and Sydia continued to serve loyally as a Senator.
A female Galactic Republic Senator during the Great Galactic War and Cold War with the Sith Empire, Verre Sydia was a staunch and occasionally outspoken opponent of the Empire. Without knowing, Sydia married an Imperial spy at some point before her tenure as Senator around 3663 BBY, at which point the man used her access to classified Senate accounts to hire the bounty hunter Terrin Sandafar.
Sandafar killed an Imperial spy named Eckhorn Baliss to stop a list of Imperial traitors in the Republic from getting out, and she was hired again by Sydia's husband a decade later, when Sydia was still serving as Senator. Sandafar was hired to kill the Rodian Shafu when the former slaver was close to locating the list for the Jedi Order, and Sydia's husband killed Sandafar as well to cover up his crimes. When Jedi Knight known as the Hero of Tython and the astromech T7-O1 suspected Sydia of treason around 3643 BBY, they discovered Sydia's husband's allegiances and she was able to continue serving with distinction as a Senator.
Behind the scenesEdit
Verre Sydia appears in several optional conversations with the Jedi Knight companion character T7-O1 in the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. She is also included in the game's list of NPC names, but whatever appearance was planned for her was ultimately cut from the game.
