Like so many other fellow Corellians, L'hnnar aspired to entering the Imperial Academy. Given the fact that she had always been an excellent student who possessed the ability to learn and retain information easily, the prospect of her entering the Academy and graduating at the top of her class was very realistic.
However, she became disillusioned with the Galactic Empire when one of her close friends at the Imperial Institute of Higher Studies on Ferrhast, Celida Noerr joined the Rebel Alliance, revealing the brutal truth about the Empire by breaking into the Institute's computer banks. As a result of the break-in, Celinda Noerr was arrested as a traitor and never seen or heard from again.
Shandira joined the Alliance and worked as an operative, drawing largely upon her skills with handling of information. When the New Republic was formed, she continued to serve in the same capacity.
