BiographyEdit

A human female, Veraslayn Kast was an artist from the planet Mandalore who supported the Death Watch, a Mandalorian terrorist splinter group that opposed the pacifist New Mandalorian government on Mandalore. One of her pieces of art, a propaganda poster, depicted several Death Watch soldiers in action amidst a city and flames, one of several pieces showcasing Mandalorian warriors partaking in battle for the first time in ages.[1]

Kast followed Death Watch leader Pre Vizsla during the Clone Wars, a conflict that saw the rise of the Shadow Collective,[1] a criminal alliance that Death Watch was the first to join.[3] With the aid of the rest of the Shadow Collective, Death Watch managed to seize control of Mandalore[4] in the year 19 BBY,[2] however Vizsla was slain after betraying the leader of the Collective, the Sith Lord Darth Maul. Maul proclaimed himself the new leader of Death Watch, prompting some members of the organization to reject his rule.[4] Kast perished during the ensuing civil war on her homeworld,[1] which pitted Mandalorians still loyal to the Shadow Collective against those who opposed Maul's rule.[5]

At the Clone Wars' conclusion the Galactic Empire came into being,[6] and the organization's Imperial Super Commandos,[1] Mandalorian soldiers who served the Empire,[7] destroyed much of the late Kast's work.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Veraslayn Kast was first mentioned in the book Star Wars Propaganda: A History of Persuasive Art in the Galaxy, written by Pablo Hidalgo[1] and released on October 25, 2016.[8]
