Early years ( ?-? )
Childhood ( ?-? )
Ijaat Was born on Mandalore into the Venn family son of Tor and Haceena Venn with Nashta as his sister. Ijaats family was some what unconventional at the time because Haceena used to be a jedi but had left the order to be with her Mandalorian husband. Though Ijaats family was accepted on Mandalore by most, the appearance of the Death Watch prompted them to move to the nearby moon of Concord Dawn. However this plan backfired when the Death Watch came to Concord Dawn. On the same attack that Jango Fett's parents were killed Ijaat's parents were killed and he and Nashta were Taken prisioner by the Death Watch. Ijaat was soon rescued when the True Mandalorians conducted an attack on the Death Watch base that he was being held at. When Jaster Mereel saw that Ijaat had also been Orphaned by the Death Watch he decied to adopt him into his family along with Jango. Ijaat was Younger than Jango and was not yet old enough to go on missions when Jaster was killed but chose to take the sur name Mereel in honer of his adopted father.

After the Death Watch had been defeated Ijaat worked with Jango in the rebuilding of Mando society. Ijaat was on Mandalore when the massacer of Jangos men happend and was distraught when he thought that Jango had been killed. When Jango returned Ijaat was over joyed but when Ijaat learned of his brothers intentions of becoming a full time bounty hunter he be came very angery. Ijaat and Jango had a big fight because of Ijaats inability to understand how Jango could abandon his people when they needed him most. before Jango left Ijaat called him dar'manda and the two never spoke again.
When Ijaat heard of Jangos death he felt guilty for not patching things up between them and decided to become a trainer for the A.R.C. troopers inorder to try and make up for it. Durring traing Ijaat gained a Particular Attachment to One clone who he nicknamed Slaat the Mando'a word for mud due to the fact the the first time they met he had been covered in it. when Slaats training was over Ijaat pulled some strings to become his commander and later reformed the A.R.C. unit into the High Value Target Elimination Unit or(H.V.T.E.U.). This unit team attempted to kill General Grivious but failed and Slaat was Killed durring the ensueing gunfight. At the shock of slaats death Ijaats latent force powers Awakened and he destroyed all the droids that had his men pinned down however, Grevious escaped. When Ijaat returned to base he seeked the advice of the Jedi general on staff on what to do about his force powers. The jedi advised caution and said not to use his power unless absolutly nessisary, the jedi also warned not to tell the Jedi council about his abilities. Later in the war when Ijaat was on a mission to one of the outer rim planets with his Best friend Nico Fett they got stuck on the edge of a black hole for what to them seemed a few min. When Ijaat and Nico commed the republic to make them aware of the new black hole they were supprised to here the man on the other end say "who are you and what are your clearance codes this is an Imperial comunication channel". Later on Ijaat and Nico learned that they had be flung 5yrs into the future due to the time dialation effect of the black hole.
