- "Death is always to be embraced."
- ―Sakanga Shai
Sakanga Shai was a Warrior of the Yuuzhan Vong. A member of Domain Shai, by the time of the Yuuzhan Vong War, Sakanga was extremely old, having a mummy-like appearance, and as such was too old to take part in the fighting. Because of this, he was assigned to the Worldship Baanu Miir, where he chided Prefect Ona Shai and Adept Nen Yim about the horror at seeing the Yuuzhan Vong who died when the Baanu Miir's rikyam caused a muscle spasm that killed four thousand inhabitants on the worldship.
