— Venari Haliat

Venari Haliat (formerly Halissk) is the Force-sensitive Trandoshan scalelord of Duskscale Clan. During the Clone Wars, he served the Confederacy and was to become widely known by his unique position amongst the Confederate leadership in the years of the Clone Wars and after the Jedi Purge. Presently, he leads a coalition of Trandoshans and considered to be one of the most widely known Trandoshans.

Venari commanded numerous task groups during his service in the Confederacy, most notably as the Commander of Ashkrik Fleet, which was a name given to it by Venari himself as it meant "To bleed your foes dry" in Dosh. Haliat was responsible for over one million Republic deaths during the war and the fall of several planets. During the Great Jedi Purge, Venari became a leading member of the Trandoshans in the Galaxy. He fought many battles alongside other members of his species throughout the war who had joined with him.

Returning to Dosha after the conclusion of the Clone Wars, Venari went on to lead his clan to become a superpower on their homeworld using resources he had obtained after the droids deactivation. He attempted to bring in the tribal peoples across the continent in forming a lasting coalition government, which had not been done for thousands of years. Unsurprisingly, he met resistance from many of his people, who felt that they should be independent, or just because they wanted to fight.


Early Life

Venari was born into the Duskscale Clan, the rulers of a powerful region on Trandosha. In his youth Venari was trained in the ways of fighting by his grandfather Tann Halissk, around this time he and his grandfather discovered his affinity with the Force, he would often train with a local shaman. He later joined the Confederate military, he changed his last name to Haliat since most seem to have a problem pronouncing Halissk. Venari participated the blockade of Naboo, however, his role is unknown. Within a short time, Venari had earned the rank of Captain, and became a scalelord of his clan after the death of his father on Kashyyyk. During one of his days on leave, Venari handcrafted a cloak fashioned from the fur of a D`oemir Bear he had killed, we would wear it as part of his attire through the war.

Venari's role as scalelord was important for Duskscale Clan, as he managed to increase the clan's power and territory twofold. Early in his rule, he was attacked by three Trandoshan assassins wielding double-blades. He managed to kill all three without injury and proceeded to gather the elders for a meeting. Venari discovered that his one of his cousins had hired them, and after killing him, he showed his Force affinity to the rest of the elders to show his power.

Clone Wars


As the Confederacy began laying siege to numerous Republic worlds, Haliat was tasked with securing a droid factory on Hypori. Shortly after, Haliat assembled a task group and led them into the battle at Hypori, which had commenced prior to his arrival. Clone intelligence was aware of his presence but was not able to gather more than cursory intelligence. Venari Haliat oversaw the reactivation of the droid factory in the planets southern region. During the re-activation of the factory, Haliat sent numerous patrol squads of Battle Droids to ensure the perimeter was secure. The Battle droids would survive if the area was clear, but if they detected the slightest sign of hostile contact, Haliat would detonate the explosives he had attached to their battery packs to either clear out the hostiles or to sign an incursion.


Knight Hynes and Clone Commando Charlie Squad were dispatched to the droid facility with orders to destroy the factory using a thermal bomb, thereby turning the factory into a crater. As his droids attacked, Haliat ambushed and killed a lone commando in charge of setting the explosive that would have destroyed the facility. While the rest of the Commandos engaged in combat with the droids, Haliat took on the Knight.

As the fight between the two began, Haliat disarmed his opponent with the Force, leaving the remainder of the fight without lightsabers. However, Hynes quickly used his own Force connection and incapacitated him with a Force push. The Knight, in a rare moment of Jedi hubris, took his time in by throwing him around. The Knight took the knife of the dead commando and drove it into Haliat's body, injuring but not killing him. Feigning defeat, Haliat conjured his strength in the Force and siphoned the life force from the Jedi, killing him. Knight Hynes' corpse was thrown off the platform they fought on by Venari shortly before he killed the remaining Clones with the energy he had remaining, he had discovered a new ability that brought him good times in the years to come.

Post-Clone Wars

Returning to his homeworld, he planned to visit as many clans to unite his people in case an outside force attempts to seize Dosha for their own; one of the clans he visited was an old rival of his. Unfortunately, the local Doshan clans were divided and civil war broke out between the more traditional clans and the progressive clans that wished to expand their species to other worlds. The war would later wage on for decades with many Trandoshans and even outsider mercenaries dead with only but a few factions remaining. However, it should be noted that the majority of Trandoshans did not participate as the war only took place on a continent rarely visited by outsiders and not fully mapped.

A New Life

A Home Away

Near the beginning of the Second Galactic Civil War, Venari Haliat served in a newly formed navy as a captain of a captured Modular Taskforce Cruiser Ink Byager. Soon after the declaration of Second Civil War, Haliat and his clan were forced to flee after the Imperial retaking of their homeworld.

With a section of starships filled with vicious and trained soldiers and nowhere to go, the trandoshans soon contacted the Mandalorians in order to receive a refuge for his people. Tyr DeMeer, the leader of the Mandalorians, offered the trandoshans a place within their society in exchange for fighting in the name of Mandalore, which Haliat agreed.

Hutt Problems

Main article: Anon Drekk

Having transporting mineral goods to Mandalorian space in a BFF-1 Bulk Freighter, Venari decided to sleep in the hot parts of the ship during the entirety of the journey. Somewhere along the trip, pirates attacked his ship. During the boarding action, Venari first helped Aaryn Averrod repel the invaders. After the ship's defenders were all active and the pirates had been driven back onto their own ship. Soon, Venari and several other troops infiltrated the enemy craft, proceeding throughout the vessel's hallways.

During the short battle, Venari encountered a number of slaves that had belonged to the ships Hutt captain. One, in particular, caught his attention, Anon Drekk (the name he was quickly given), would be adopted by him later on in the following weeks.

Aliit V'r'caah


Venari Haliat, for a short time, was a member of a Sith cult called Tsis Tvarka Reborn in order to see if they were a threat to other force-sensitives. Sometime after, the cult began recruiting sentients near starport entrances and exits. During this recruitment drive, Haliat infiltrated Tsis Tvarka Reborn by merely using a Mind Trick against the unwitting recruiter. When their leader, known as Darth Xez at the time, was at a hastily erected encampment on Derra, Haliat found an opportunity to discern the threat posed by TTR as Xez was preparing his combat Armour. However, after sensing in the force Xez's presence, Haliat quickly found relief in that this Darth Lord was merely an impostor and possessed the Force-sensitivity of a Mynock and was merely mad in his own delusions. After the two locked onto each other's eyes, Haliat left the tent after successfully Mind Tricking him into forgetting he was present.

Afterwards, Haliat abandoned the cult, along with a list of names of agents, informants, and advisers from various factions, as well as managing to turn three other members of the cult to abandoned with him. Haliat later engaged in a duel with Darth Xez after having finally realizing his betrayal, however, Xez was easily defeated and fled like the coward he is. Xez would later, suffering from the humiliation of this event, changed his title to Darth Siege and began a spiral of grandeur.

New Body

In Y18, Venari and a detachment of clansmen from Clan Halissk took to investigating a rogue signal in the Elom system. There, they discover an abandoned space station. Extracting the station's data core, they proceed to search the station. However, they were soon attacked by a group of mercenaries, led by a former Vurk Jedi Knight: The Vurk swiftly defeated the Trandoshans and mortally wounding Haliat by impaling him with his Lightsaber. Near death, Venari conjured all his strength in the Force and shifted his spirit into that of the Vurk and leaving his dying body behind.

After defeating the Vurk in his own mind, Venari quickly took control of his body and claimed it as his own. Awakening his comrades and convincing them of his true identity, they left the system to explain what had happened to the rest of the clan, but not before retrieving his trandoshan body and turning the station into a molten debris field

Personality & traits

Venari, like most Trandoshans, holds an obsession with honor and Jagannath points for most of his life. However, he is more flexible than his peers when it came to tactics he would employ, and in particular showed an interest in Wookiee weapons before the Clone Wars. His worldview changed during the Great Jedi Purge from the effect the deaths of so many Force-sensitives at once. While once zealous to the Scorekeeper's will, he became more open-minded about tactics, such as retreats. His experiences as a Commander also made him more pragmatic than most Trandoshans, being willing to accept help from other species.

Venari was a brilliant commander, known for utilizing advanced tactics and studying his foes that allowed for a greater ferocity in naval combat. During the Clone Wars, Haliat was known for his preference to lead battles from the front lines instead of in the back. His unorthodox tactics among the Confederacy military quickly caught the eye of Clone Intelligence, who would later consider him a threat for both his naval and ground prowess in combat.

After losing his Jagannath points, he was ashamed for his loss of status in the eyes of the Scorekeeper and wished only to regain the favor of his Goddess. He remained adherent to his faith, up until he killed the enemy that caused his loss of status, regaining his lost points. Following the deactivation of his droid forces, Venari developed a hatred of Neimoidians, even after learning they were ultimately not responsible. Despite his dislike of clones, Venari has developed a respect for some, and even a respect for some Jedi he had encountered. He also seems to have a great liking for puns.

Powers & abilities

Venari possesses all the natural abilities of his species, such as superhuman strength, infrared vision, and unique regenerative abilities that allows regenerating of lost limbs, augmented with his Force abilities, Venari is an extremely powerful combatant.


  • The Force: As a result of being born with a high amount of Midi-chlorians within his cells, Haliat has the ability to detect and alter the flow of the Force, a almost supernatural entity that exists in all life in the galaxy and possibly the universe. Venari has mastered the usage of healing, barriers, and force lightning while only just starting on battle meditation and mind tricks.
  • Trandoshan Physiology
    • Superhuman Strength: Venari, like the rest of his species, possesses immense strength exceeding that of most other species. Venari, due to his connection with the Force, he can enhance his strength to the point of rivaling that of even the Wookiees for a short duration.
    • Superhuman Durability: Venari's reptilian physiology is much more resistant to physical damage than other species. He can also survive in temperatures most other species would not survive.
    • Longevity: Venari, with help from the Force, can drain life and the Force from individuals, and has gained the ability to use the Force to regenerate his own life force, granting Haliat with an extended lifespan.
    • Healing Factor: Much like every other individual being in the galaxy, Venari can suffer from wounds. Haliat's reptilian healing factor can regenerate entire limbs, unlike most other species. Combined with his Force powers, Venari can heal to an even greater extent.
    • Infrared Vision: Venari can see into the infrared spectrum due to his Trandoshan physiology. Thus, he perceived things due to the heat that they emit.


Venari Haliat is an incredibly skilled Trandoshan, famed as one of the deadliest Trandoshans in the galaxy. His skills in combat and warfare have proven invaluable during his service to the Separatists cause, and later to his people. Trained aggressively in his youth by Tann Halissk, Venari Haliat is a skilled combatant and competent Force user. Since he had obtained a lightsaber, he has significantly refined his capabilities with the lightsaber, along with other weaponry ranging from heavy machine guns to the smallest of knives. Having proven his skills at war, Venari attracted the attention of other Trandoshan clans.

Haliat is known for displaying incredible prowess with his lightsaber and ELG-3A. Known to deftly wield a lightsaber, Venari operates the weapon with remarkable power and speed, enhanced with his connection with the Force. Venari is able to use his lightsaber to block and deflect blaster shots thanks to his Force precognition. During an engagement against a Separatist holdout faction in his Mandalorian territory, Venari engaged numerous BX-commando droids and average droids and succeeded in destroying the droids, despite their swiftness, and the numerical advantage.


He favors his customized lightsaber he had acquired during the war with the republic, however, he still uses a vibroblade that has been in his possession since before the Clone Wars, Clone's Bane. Venari most often uses a DLT-20a in ranged combat, and duel-wielded ELG-3As he acquired from a friend a long time ago. Haliat is also in possession of a number of ships including an YV-666, a Sprint, and a Ginivex starfighter that has been in his possession since he got it during the Clone Wars, and throughout the years has helped him in his war on Dosha.

  • Venari Haliat's Armor:
    • Pre-Clone Wars & During: Venari's first armor set that he wore into battle was almost chitinous and organic in appearance, reflecting its origin on Trandosha. His helmet, which encompassed most of his face, vaguely resembles a Frist shark. A cross-shaped pattern of purplish insets faces outward from a central point on the helmet. A blade-like talon, derived from the teeth of Dosha's predators, is located on the inner toe of either boot.
    • Post Clone Wars: While Haliat at first donned his scalelord armor during the Clone Wars, he has recently been seen wearing a heavily customized Trandoshan-Mandalorian hybrid battle armor, mixing the two cultures into one. This armor is gold in color and more baroque then his scalelord armor set.
