Jevan Rhade was born in 32 BBY on the planet Concord Dawn into Clan Rhade of House Vizsla, the son of Valen Rhade, a former Mandalorian police officer, and his wife, Tavrie. As members of the Old Mandalorians, those who continued to live according to the traditionalist warrior ways of old, Clan Rhade was among the warrior-clans that made up those exiled following the pacifistic New Mandalorian’s victory during the Mandalorian Civil War.
Valen, who wished to instill a proper legacy for Clan Rhade, instructed the young Jevan in the warrior ways of his people. As his clan had been supporters of the old ways, Jevan was taught the tenets of the Mandalorian code. By the time he was eight, Jevan had developed a strong sense of Mandalorian culture and like his parents, wished to remain true to the honorable standards championed by the Old Mandalorians.
When the Clone Wars broke out in 22 BBY, Clan Rhade offered its services to the Separatists, having no love for the widespread corruption in the Republic, as well as remaining embittered by its support of the New Mandalorians. The clan was employed as additional security forces, and spent much of the war working security onboard transport shuttles and at Confederate camps throughout the Outer Rim. Valen left to fight on the frontlines, sending credits home to Tavrie for the continued raising of Jevan.
With his father away at war, Jevan continued his military and survival training under the careful guidance of his mother, who continued to reinforce the teachings of old ways and the Mandalorian code. Through his mother’s tutelage, Jevan became a competent manhunter and a skilled marksman. For his own part, he developed an efficient skill with technology, particularly when it came to modifying weapons and armor.
With the end of the Clone Wars and transformation of the Galactic Republic into the Galactic Empire, Concord Dawn fell under the rule of the Journeyman Protectors, former warriors subservient to the ruler of Mandalore. Although a majority of the clans had agreed to allow an Imperial presence on the planet, including an Imperial garrison, Clan Rhade was apprehensive about the decision, viewing any deal with the Empire a bad idea.
After some years of living under the rule of the Imperial-aligned Protectors, Jevan sought to live a life free of the oppressive Empire and its politics. With the support of his parents and Clan Rhade, Jevan ensured that they would always be on his mind and left Concord Dawn in 10 BBY to find his own way in the galaxy.
Drawing upon his accomplished skills as a manhunter and combatant, Jevan became a bounty hunter operating mostly in the Outer Rim. Although he possessed an Imperial Peace-Keeping Certificate and accepted Imperial contracts, he held little love for the Empire and preferred to take jobs from those outside the Empire, when available. Over the years, he earned a reputation for having a strict code of honor and defending justice and the law in his own ruthless way.
In 5 BBY, Jevan entered the employ of Xiarr, a Falleen crime lord and low-level associate of the Black Sun. Despite his general distaste for criminal syndicates, Jevan viewed Xiarr as a necessary evil, since he provided contracts and didn’t question Jevan’s preference to work around the law, rather than outright break it. While working for Xiarr, Jevan grew to become one of the Falleen’s preferred mercenaries, and was frequently entrusted with some of the most dangerous contracts.
While on Ord Mantell in 0 BBY, Jevan came into contact with Iala Noraan, a reckless Twi’lek smuggler also working for Xiarr. As Jevan was returning to Xiarr’s Worlport facility following delivery of a fugitive, an argument broke out between Iala and one of Xiarr’s lieutenants that resulted in the Tw’lek causing an accidental explosion. The blast destroyed several of Xiarr’s smuggling freighters, as well as Jevan’s own ship, which was caught in the shock wave. As repayment for her part in the loss of his ship, Jevan convinced Iala to allow him to work out of her’s, the Rogue Zenith, a lightly-modified YT-2400 light freighter.
Although the relationship proved tumultuous at first and their experiences with the Empire and life on the fringe vastly different, they eventually found common ground. Iala provided Jevan with a reliable means of transport and Jevan brought his technical aptitude, as well as providing a boost to Iala’s reputation with his Mandalorian imagery.
Eventually, Jevan cut professional ties with Xiarr in 1 ABY, disillusioned with working for a criminal syndicate. Realigning himself as an independent bounty hunter, Jevan vowed to become one of the best and most feared in the galaxy, and with that, bring honor to his clan.
