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

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] sometime between 0 ABY and 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]

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 the Vex crusade in mentioned, must have taken place sometime between 0 ABY and 3 ABY.
