Biography

Early Life

Niv Dralshy'a was born on Mandalore but raised on bakura Bakura 190 ABY the Kiffar Mandalorian Zrek Vevut Oyev, and Echani Mandalorian Fira Ghent Oyev. Both were sent to Bakura as advance scouts to the jungles to prepare settling of an colony for Clan Vevut. Niv's early years were the standard harsh upbringing of a Mandalorian, spent in the Jungles of Bakura, and rarely in the cities , at age 8 her parents discovered a Sith led Imperial Presence on the planet and planned to engage the Sith, they plotted an ambush to destroy the Sith and Imperials all at once. the plan backfired horribly, the Sith Lord had predicted the trap and used it to destroy the Mandalorian mercenaries. The two Mandalorians fought hard, killing the Sith Lord even before a Blast from a Walkers turbolaser cooked them inside their armor. Niv had watched all from an escaping ship she was forced onto by other members of the clan. Later, a Young Niv would return to the battlefield, find her Parents bodies, and retrieved their armor, weapons and buried them. She fought her way across the Galaxy, stealing, working as a mercenary, bounty hunter and mechanic Trying to find her way back to her family, until 14 years later she found her way to Mos Eisley.

Beginnings

After arriving in Tatooine, now wearing the tattered cobbled together plates of her parents armor, Niv Oyev had her first encounter with other Mandalorians in fourteen years. meeting Yom Nole, Tyro 'Gutter' Votino and several others. they welcomed her into their home until she met Verex Las Vevut and Asp Vevut. An aging Nautolans and Alor'ad[2] and Alor[1] of Vevut Aliit[3]. They took her to Bakura where Asp revealed why her Father had moved there, and her heritage and past. She was formally adopted and given the name Niv Oyev Vevut. Trained to the rank of Verd[4] and recieved a full Mandalorian Education

Alorship, Discovery, and Marriage

Once again. Niv Vevut met The then Wife of Tyro 'Gutter' Votino. Lumine Dralshy'a. during this time Asp had disappeared to a war in the outer rim after promoting her to Ruus'alor[5], but leaving No Alor'ad in his stead.

Lumine had fought Niv several times before for reasons she could little remember, one occasion cutting off her arm, they eventually became friends after being forced by a storm to talk about why Lumine hated Vevut so much. and a deal was struck, Niv would take over Alor'ship of Clan Dralshy'a and use it to merge it into Vevut'aliit. during this time, she met Jaing Dralshy'a, who had been taught by a former Vevut Alor Kal Vevut. the two became a couple and eventually married.

Niv had learned through an analysis of their blood following a fight that required a transfusion of Niv and Lumine were in fact biological cousins, Their fathers even having taken pictures of each other on Kiffu

While Niv discovered that Asp had gone missing completely, she also discovered that the near dead Aliit'Dralshy'a might be worth saving after-all. Joining the Solus'Mando'ade (United Mandalorians), she eventually earned the respect of the other Alore[1] and secured a seat on their council. Dralshy'a however remained small at this time.

Pain of Loss, and New Life and Love

After her to Jaing and the aquisition of Teroch Bral by Clan Kata. Niv's life is once again riddled with pain by the loss of her Vod Lumine, and Her adopted Buir Asp Vevut, Lumine, after having left her husband, was killed by A'denla Kad Socarras. Asp having Died of old age after escaping from the captivity of the Dark Jedi whom he once was one of. After the massacre of Vevut aliit on Bakura.

Shortly after, the events leading to the war between the Galactic Unity clans and the UM clans, if it could be called a war at all, caused a slow rift to build between Jaing.

Niv had fled from Tatooine. fearing Imperial Wrath after her burst of outrage against the Imperial Senator. she had brought her clan to The Order of Rowe at a suggestion from Adun Sciarri a fellow alor and friend of Darth Rowe, an agreement for mutual protection and housing was reached, it was then that Niv met the man whom she would eventually marry, Alakar Xyvern.

Jaing wanted to Join Tyber Kassar's Crime Syndicate, against Niv's Orders. Insisting upon it, Niv finally agreed to at least meet this person, finding his behavior arrogant, thinking him stupid and disgusted by his sexist remarks and delusions of grandeur Niv left and called her clan to come with her. Jaing refused, after refusing to say a word about the insulting way kassar had spoken to her, and taking his side over hers, and after refusing to come with her, something in Niv snapped. the then pregnant woman demanded he come with her, or it was over. Jaing refused. and Niv in tears and anger divorced him on the spot, and exiled him from clan Dralshy'a

She fell into the arms of Alakar Xyvern shortly thereafter, whom had joined Dralshy'a and was no longer dar'manda[6] by retaking the trials of Mandalorian rebirth called the Verd'goten. Through a strange version of the Kiffar object empathy. Niv and Alakar glimpsed into each others hearts and minds. seeing each other's entire lives of pain and hardship, finding solace in one another, Niv had found a bit of peace. Jaing shortly after this came to see her. to try to apologize, Niv went berserk after Jaing attempted to shoot her, Alakar used a mindwipe device to erase Jaings memory of everything after first meeting Niv. Other Alore[1] took this as dishonorable and would have preferred she simply killed him, they demanded she apologize for not this stain on her honor which she made penance for, agreeing she had crossed a line

A Few months later, Niv gave birth to her Son: Jatne Kar'am Dralshy'a, surrounded by her Clan and other friends[7], and some of the Order of Rowe Sith.

It was some months after that Niv was challenged by Kana, the former Alor'ad of Dralshy'a when Caden (the original Dralshy'a Alor) was Alive. Niv Soundly defeated Kana removing her arms on her Home on Endor, Kana Left in shame with her failure. soon after, the United Mandalorians dissolved finally, Reforming Under Tyro and Bobbika as Ne'ruug Mando'ade. and a new crusade was declared, Dralshy'a being one of the clans to Join.

All the while, Niv's skill at engineering and shipcraft improved, as did her metalworking, the Clan leader began to amass a reputation for being a skilled craftsman

Crusades

The New Crusades were to be against the enemies of the Mando'ade, all those aruetiise[8] who no longer feared and respected Mando'ade.

A new fortress was built on the old site of an ancient clone wars battle, Xagobah to act as a staging point.

Niv Originally agreed to this in order to gain the spoils of war and to make profits for her Employer, MandalMotors, however, it soon became clear that Tyro's trust in Bobika was misplaced as he began to gain a reputation as a madman amoung the clans. . Niv demanded he be removed from his position and replaced with someone more reasonable she felt, such as her old Friend Yom Nole, or she would pull her clan out, and with it,

The Crusades Fell Apart as the clans dispersed again.

Thule, Franchisement, and Support of Mand'alor

As the Crusade idea fell apart, Niv brought her clan to the depth of Sith Space on Thule, and established a popular cantina and restaurant there. a far cry from the Fortress she had lived in on Xagobah, but much closer to Mandalore..

She watched her clan steadily grow as her cantina increased in success, using it to fund her passion of engineering and shipbuilding to stave off her unsatisfaction with her new position at MandalMotors as an executive. Still she continued supplying Designs for new ships and weapons, Eventually Rolling out the Pursuer II and III gunships. Niv had noticed that an Old Associate had laid claim to the title of Mand'alor, after hearing her out, she nodded quietly her support of Rhubardin Darasuum as Mand'alor The Travelor, traveling to Dxun when she answered a challenge from Tyro, who despite being gravely wounded during the fight continued to fight on until both were near the point of death.

Some time After, though, on Kuat, the Elders of the most prominent clans at that point, representing all that could be assembled were called by Mandalore. Who wanted to know why some were calling for her execution and why a few clans were declaring loudly to anyone who would listen that they were dar'manda if they supported Mand'alor as a counterpoint some of the clans supporting Rhubardin declared the naysayers pledging violence as Neo-death watch. The Assembly was called to end it after another challenge to her title left a man ripped to shreds on Enceri. Rhubardin agreed that since she was not needed as a war leader, she would retire the mask, and the clans there agreed, no new Mandalore would be named until all the clans there agreed on one together.

Meanwhile, Niv continued to grow in wealth as she purchased another cantina on Lok, and in the stenness Hyperspace terminal, having both a successful business franchise, a large bank account, pension from MandalMotors and royalties to come in for nearly life. and with the expectation of twin children, she considered something she'd never thought she'd live to confront: Retirement and at an exceptionally young age.

Nomadic Life, Loss, and rebuilding

Niv's prosperity was, short lived. after returning from Mandalore after giving birth to her twins, Mirdala, and Canderous, She realized she had but a fraction of the credits or assets she once had hoped to live off and was determined to provide for the clan. While working on new projects for MandalMotors to build up her fortune, drifting from place to place, she found temporary basing with the remnants of the Ori'mareve clan who had joined hers, with Yom Nole and Kaz Rahiz, and Tess'ari Cayuga among those in the fold Now, Dralshy'a was a powerful clan and a Force to behold with many veteran leaders and warriors making a name for themselves.

Campaign of Destruction

In an attempt to further increase the clan's prestige and glory, Niv set about the Galaxy with many of her clanmates on Daring Raids on Jedi and Republic Targets, As an act of revenge against them, she began a terrifying campaign of Piracy, Violence, and strategic striking. stealing resources wherever she could, food, drink, goods, ore, bacta, machinery, most of the time to increase the wealth of the Mandalorian clans. Her main targets were Outer Rim worlds holding Jedi enclaves on them, and soft republican targets. Yavin, Dantooine, Naboo, Corellia, Ruusan, Gromas 16, all these worlds felt the lance of Dralshy'a's fury. The Clan established a small tattoo parlor, and Bar with a dug out underden in the bowels of Nar Shaddaa's Undercity . The Final stroke in the campaign was The Annihilation of Theed. After Sith Imperial Forces had captured The City, using Borrowed Mandal craft piloted on droid skeleton crews and a Few Mandalorians within the clan, several large vessels entered the Naboo system's space and wiped out the Sith Defense fleet left to await occupation ground forces. Niv, and Zepp Takur Landed in the City and made their way through killing the small number of guards left there before ransacking the abandoned city, loading up millions of credits of valuable art work, trade goods and other wealth. before evacing out and signalling a Nuclear Orbital Bombardment of the city. It would later come to light that this was not Theed at all, but another city they had mistaken for Theed of similar architecture along the coastline from it. Though the urban legend of the destruction theed would continue to perplex visitors to the Naboo capital for decades.

Te Talyc Mand'alor

Soon Niv's Warpath began to reveal a larger goal, her raids were intent on gathering resources, testing new battle strategies, and tactics and building a reputation in the galaxy as a commander as well as a clan leader and warrior. Niv soon met Ani'la soccarras, the son of A'denla Kad. Being informed of a Dangerous new Pretender who sought to lead the Mandalorians into another era of Sith Manipulated bloodshed, she swore to stop that from happening. She called a meeting of clan elders and alore at Olankur where Niv spoke about how the Mandalorians had been drifting apart of late, the civil wars had quieted, but stagnation had threatened the warrior clans for too long, the bitter fighting between old rivals though quiet caused a cold war where no one took action and the culture was slowly dying off. she proposed that a New Mandalore be selected to lead The Mandalorians. The Would be Pretender Fedhar was in attendance, and immediately Ani'la stood up and revealed his treachery, most agreed however, that a Mand'alor would be chosen then, but disagreed on how, some favored an election another favored a tournament, after much bickering, finally Vhe'tra Kata, a Brave Verd stood up and declared it would be done in the ways of our ancestors, He declared himself Mandalore at that moment and dared any who wished to fight for that position do so and challenge him in rite of battle.. Gro'Adett Skirata followed, and after nearly killing vhe'tra, Did battle with Niv, who seeing the moment of opportunity, seized upon and Defeated Gro'adett, who was already wounded from his battle with Vhe'tra, but refused to let that stop the battle, he waited for Niv to finish him, when she stated she would not kill a defeated opponent. Koss Ne'tra Orar was the First of Her Challengers, and the two fought much of the night in fierce combat, none claiming a true upper hand until both had been so injured continuing would kill them both, Niv refusing to Yield, and neither would Koss, they mutally relented to agree to fight when they had recovered, naming Niv Dralshy'a the New Mand'alor in the meantime.

Smiting the Pretender

Niv did not wait until her wounds were healed to dispatch Fedhar who had begun calling himself Mandalore despite having clearly been proven to be not even considerable for the position, Niv Confronted him, at which point he refused to fight, insisting he had a right to call himself what he wished and be left alone, Niv refused to let what she viewed as immense blasphemy stand and immediately attacked, and gave chase. After a relentless offensive from the Horn Helmed Mando'ad, Fedhar found his attempts at defense completely powerless to stop her advance, after being coated in an adhesive incindiary liquid and removing his armor for fear of burning, he used the guise of wishing to fight blade to blade without armor. Niv now infuriated by his use of steadily heavier weapons are more and more by Mandalorian standards dishonorable tactics, believing the pretender had forfeited any such right to such honor,she merely shot Fedhar. Which while not killing him, did incapacitate him allowing her to remove his scalp brutally, she began to wear it as a trophy after attaching it to her helmet later

After this event Koss Ne'tra Orar Contacted her stating he no longer wished to continue their fight, believing she to be capable in the role of Mand'alor and it was necessary to continue the fight. But Before then, an assassination attempt would be made on her by a Trandoshan. After defeating them She would be called out by a Chistori bouncer named Jaxx.The Trandoshan was easily fought off, and Jaxx never attempted to get back in contact with her to schedule the fight. Concurrently, however, Fedhar who before Niv's claiming the title of Mand'alor had amassed allies in outlying younger Mandalorian clans, had begun gathering slaver and criminal gang allies in the Blood talon Syndicate, a smalltime but vicious slaver syndicate, Fedhar had been talking about how he planned to continue his plans despite his defeat, and claimed Niv was a savage coward. Niv confronted him face to face, and Fedhar under the illusion of cowing and submitting, recorded the event in an attempt to rally support behind her back to usurp her. little did Fedhar know, all of his allies in the Mandalorian clans had heard of his defeat, and previously had contacted Niv swearing fealty. During the conspiratory meeting Fedhar arranged, at least 4 clans were feeding her information as it was happening through helmet monitoring. The conspiracy was a trap before it began, Fedhar's armor had been melted down, and he was finally killed by his own slave in rebellion against him. Kaz Rahiz brought his head to Niv as a gift, she performed taxidermy upon it and mounted it upon her mantle as a trophy.

Duel on Alaris Prime

After Dealing with Fedhar, Niv had one last challenger to overcome before she could begin the work of rebuilding the Mandalorians: Defeating the Last Mandalore in Battle. Rhubardin Had challenged Niv to a Duel on Alaris prime, Oversaw by members of various clans, Niv and Rhubardin fought near a ruined temple for hours in a fierce duel utilizing their entire arsenals, hunting each other across the battlegrounds. Ultimately it had come down to sheer tenacity and quick wit, though Rhubardin was fierce and her offensive staggering, Niv's Determination and brutality in combat allowed her to pound her opponent with blow after blow, Until a rocket explosion brought the Felacatian Mandalorian Down for the count. Niv, now Heavily Injured, stood bloodied and battered in the rain, but stood she did. She declared in a booming voice "I am Te Talyc Mand'alor!" Very few people actually called her this name.

A New Cause to Rally to, and a People United again.

Once her challengers were met, and her doubters fell silent, Te Talyc Mand'alor, a name she gave herself, that few people called her, began the work of gathering resources to rebuild a Mandalorian Armada strong enough to secure the Mandalore Sector of space, and to rally the clans together to do that. After meeting with Emperor Validus on Byss, She signed a Non-aggression pact with the Sith Empire opening up trade, and ensuring no open hostilities would wage between Mandalorians and the Sith. she then using looted Sith Artifacts from Onderon, purchased a fleet of Older Star Destroyers being decommissioned and began refurbishing and upgrading them to Mandalorian shields, a Fleet of twelve Imperator Class Star Destroyers, with upgraded shielding, Turbo-lasers, Hyperdrives, Hull plating, and adding Mass Driver Railguns to them, this complimented a fleet of dozens of Tra'kad and besu'liik Starfighters, Crusader Corvette gunships, Pursuer, Pursuer II and III class Gunships, and several Keldabe Class Battleships and Aggressor Class Star Destroyers. though without enough men and equipment to supply and man the fleet, they needed resources. and So Niv moved her fleet, after consulting with the Revenant Armada Marauder Sgt Millie Tanner, Into the Y'toub System and Launched an exploratory Party on Nal Hutta, Finding Galactic Dominion Forces, Hostilities between the two groups soon sparked, The Dominion Eventually leaving the world, and with a new deal with the Hutts, The Mandalorians began to mine the minerals from the World, in exchange for Armament Contracts with the Cartel, Meanwhile, she had approached her homeworld of Bakura, the home of a Star-crossed Grand army of the republic, built anew by wealthy investors, with an offer. Following the Collapse of the PGA Bakura needed allies. and So Niv began negotiations to accept Bakura as a Mandalorian world to offer them protection.

These Events spread through the galaxy like wildfire, word began to spread through a newly launched Galaxy wide Relay Network Called the Karbakar Comm network accessible only to Mandalorians, That A New Mand'alor had arisen and given a cause and purpose to Mandalorian arms again, having re-established the Protectors under the Command of Al'verd Zepp Takur, and Chartered a Goran Guild of Smiths and Craftsmen to begin building Warforges again, The Mandalorians, from all clans, creeds, walks of life, parts of the galaxy and philosophy began to gather to Te Talyc Mand'alor, restless for a new cause for which to fight for, for a chance to see glory and prosperity returned to their people or the chance to fight a battle worth fighting, petty squabbles between long time rivals had been set aside, the most argumentative of the clans who had contributed to the recent decades infighting and civil unrest all but Vanished, the timing was perfect for a new Mandalorian Armada and Cause to rise up, and for the first time in decades Niv accomplished what None of recent generations ever could: She United The Mandalorians into One Faction and Force again.

War With the Sith And Dominion.

During her reign as Mand'alor she began a series of wars against the Hutts, the Sith and the dominion. Her true goals were not to win, but to sieze territory and carve out a Mandalorian Hegemony, an Empire. Mostly, she succeeded in this. Using the excuse of defeating the Sith Empire, Niv's Mandalorian crusades engulfed hutt space and everything from the hydian way to Lok, the largest the Mandalorian Empire had ever reached. The Sith Empire was able to take control of vast swaths of territory as well during the war, while the Galactic Dominion, New Republic and other factions were either completely consumed in the crossfire or severely diminished.

The war continued for several years, with her daughter Mirdala, or Dal Dralshy'a having been a toddler when she became Mand'alor was almost a grown woman when she began fighting with the Mandalorian A-Team. A group of elite Supercommandos who were sent as the vanguard of surgical missions. Several battles saw Mandalorian victories, while other times they were repelled. Niv personally leading to victory on Ruusan, Nar Shaddaa, and Bakura. However, the Mandalorians were never able to conquer Trian, and despite striking Byss several times, never succeeded in winning there.

During this War, The Mandalorians, and Niv's relationship with the Press became increasingly worse. The two lead anchors of the Galactic News Network being favorable to the Sith more than the Mandalorians.

The war would begin to draw to a close after Niv's daughter, Dal, was captured by the Galactic Dominion and given to the Sith during an ambush, Dal had sacrificed herself to allow the other Mandalorians to escape. Enraged, she desperately wanted to storm Byss herself and take her back, but the clan honor guards would not let her risk it. Several more attempts to rescue Dal was made by her A-team, or the Supercommandos, until she was released, having revealed little information by the Sith in an attempt to humiliate and undermine the Mandalore. Mirdala was returned mutilated, her hands removed and tribal face tattoos cut off. It would be years Niv and Dal's relationship was repaired.

Retirement from Mandalore

This act traumatized Niv, and despite defeating several insurgencies, the clans grew restless and wanted an end to a war that was becoming a grinder. Niv, unable to secure victory against the Sith. She stepped down and made the biggest mistake of her life. She gave the title of Mand'alor to her daughter sparking an immediate civil war.

Niv had done her best top teach the woman, support her. She fought a duel against long time rival and future close friend Cayce Kata, which came to a standstill Finally, Jackson stepped down as well, and Niv found herself focusing on the clan, and her craft.

Years passed, and she watched her children grow, fall in love, marry, seeing all this happen Niv was content to step away from the leadership of the clan.

Niv saw combat on Kerest as well during the minor conflicts with the Death Watch and the Ordo rebels. One such battle cost her another arm, this time her left as a disruptor disarmed her from afar, forcing her to have to amputate or be disintegrated ,thankfully her shattered vambrace had protected her from immediate death, once more. Now both hands mechanical. She feared her craftsmanship would suffer, but with the extent of her cybernetic control and interface with her brainstem she achieved an inhuman level of mastery of metalworking.

For years she let it prosper from the sidelines until time wore away old friends. on Kerest, her friend Tyro killed Mandalore, and took the mask for himself.

Niv a long time supporter of him was exceptionally glad of this, and was all too sad to see him die of a heart attack some years later. The Mandalorian protectors fleurished, Niv's Mandalorian Empire shrank, but remained stable.Her business boomed and she was happy.

Mandalore the Reclaimer, and the Return of Civil War.

Niv was old when the civil war returned to the galaxy. A'denla Kad, now once more Mandalore, this time, The Reclaimer and having succeeded in expanding in Niv's impressive Empire, though having lost hutt space, Had taken coruscant back from the humans and reclaimed it for their taung ancestors, Drafted Niv back into service, this time as an Admiral and War leader. No longer as young as she was, but with decades of experience, Niv was a terrifying threat to the enemies of the Mandalorians, Standing as War Marshall.

Eventually however, The conflicts returned, several clans, disliking the wars of conquest, retired from the battlefield, vowing to support Mandalore, but only materially, not physically. Mandalore accepted this, begrudgingly, rather than risk open war. Niv was infuriated however by the clans that would speak ill of A'denla yet would not fight him. She herself had not much love, as he had killed her kin years before and she had never forgotten it. But Mandalore was Mandalore, and she was a Mandalorian.

Things came to a head after the battle of Elom where the Mandalorians were stopped due to one of the war leaders abandoning the field of battle. Akaan'tal Vau. Mandalore also began to act erratically, spending much time with the queen of Onderon. Eventually, Niv grew frustrated with A'denla's refusal to act. and so challenged him to a duel to the death. Niv was prepared to die, having grown old, but still younger than A'denla. She believed she could win with superior tactics, superior weapons and cunning. A'denla however, died the night before the battle of a massive stroke. He had suffered one before, and now, Niv, robbed of her chance at glory again, a final redeemption argued that she should claim the mask as she had been the one to challenge and she was the only true and rightful leader. But the younger generation shouted the older woman down much to her displeasure and proposed leaders with little experience.

Things settled eventually, upon Akaan'tal Vau, who had once fled from Elom. Niv, disgusted, vowed to never again engage in clan politics. She built a youth center in taung heights coruscant, maintained a forge and apartment, and training center for Mandalorians, but eventually, after Akaan'tal was killed during a battle, Niv left Coruscant and returned to Mandalore.

The Phobis War, Miron.

The new Mandalore selection was a circus according to Niv. Several clans suggested she lead again, however, several more argued that it should go to an inexperienced but promising bounty hunter named Miron. MIron was adequate, he was a good hunter, had good instincts, honorable ,Just Mandalorian. But he never wanted the position. He brought the Mandalorians into the rebellion against the One Sith Empire, joined the galactic tetrarchy and waged war until he was murdered by Bre Viszla and his cronies. Niv sent the support of her clan to oppose this murder but did little else. She had by this point grown too old and tired to do much but make armor and help raise the young ones in her family. She also saw the return of her beloved husband, back from his journeys, renouncing the Sith paths forever. Alakar and Niv remained in northern Mandalore, one of the few pockets escaping the bombardment of the Sith, and the deadly affect of the Phobis War.

During the invasion of Sundari, Niv journeyed to the desert alone, expecting to die in one final glorious defense of the planet. But her blade did not fail her, using no blasters, Niv fought at the front meeting Sith sword to sword and cutting down scores of the enemy. She was terrifying to behold on the battlefield, a demon of mechanical speed and power and fire. Despite her age, death and violence brought her alive again and many wondered how much of her stated elderly weakness was in her head, or simply to keep people unaware of what she was capable of. Niv survived the battle, miraculously, and in frustration began to throw herself again and again into battle. Some of her exploits included:

  • Killing a Xenomorphic Sithspawn with a sword.
  • Attempting to intimidate an entire Star Destroyer of crew to stand down in fear, an incident which would later be referred to as the "Mom's spagetti" Speech.
  • Hunting and killing a Krayt Dragon with a group of Mandalorian warriors.

Niv's last hurrah was in fighting the governor of Mandalore to liberate the sector from the self appointed governor. Supporting new Mandalore Slade Krynze, Killing scores of the governor's men herself, eventually after the war ended. Niv retired for good, too old to stand without her armor ,she spent the remainder of her days teaching apprentices, building things, complaining about the good old days to youths and teaching them. She donated large portions of her personal wealth to chairity and to the Mandalorian state.
