"Sandewar Mandewar. Leader of the Vex crusade, who—"
―"Lopset Yas," to Chelli Lona Aphra[1]

The Vex crusade was an alleged organization led by an alien named Sandewar Mandewar.[1] When the notorious doctor and smuggler[2] Cornelius Evazan pretended[3] to demonstrate his shape-shifting abilities to the rogue archaeologist Chelli Aphra[1] while disguised under the alias "Lopset Yas"[3] around 3 ABY,[4] he changed into his depiction of Mandewar. Evazan further mentioned that the supposed alien held the position as leader of the Vex crusade.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Vex crusade was mentioned in the comic Doctor Aphra (2016) 21, written by Si Spurrier and published by Marvel Comics[1] on June 27, 2018.[5] Due to the capitalization of speech in the comic, it is not known whether "crusade" is capitalized or not.[1]

  4. The events of Doctor Aphra (2016) 21 takes place shortly before the events of issue 22 of the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic-book series. In the latter issue, Accresker Jail is decommissioned. Crimson Reign 3 states that Jeremoch Colton had been in the wreckage-prison for over three years when Madelin Sun visited him. Crimson Reign 3 also states that he was imprisoned after the capture of the Tantive IV, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 0 BBY. Since Accresker Jail is decommissioned prior to the events of Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, which Galactic Atlas dates to 3 ABY, Doctor Aphra 23 must take place in 3 ABY, and the events of Doctor Aphra 21 have to have occurred around that year.
