|Chronological and political information|
Skodhan grew up on the streets of Mantooine and worked as a burglar. However, after she was almost caught while raiding an Imperial installation, she needed to lie low for a while, so she began working as a sabacc hustler. She encountered General Airen Cracken of the Rebel Alliance and after he lost three months' pay to her, he persuaded her to join the Alliance.
Skodhan got a job as a sabacc dealer in the Imperial Palace Casino Hotel on Ord Mantell, where she spied on Imperial officers who played at her table. She also used her skills as a burglar to break into the rooms of Imperial officers and search for anything that could help the Alliance.
