Ni'Sya was born in Mandalore, and was taken in by Ge'tal Gra'tua when she was just 6 years old. When she got older, a romantic notion existed between them. By the time she was 11, her family sent a squad of bounty hunters to retrieve her and bring her back to Mandalore. She was separated from Ge'tal for a few years until he went looking for her after the Clone Wars. Unfortunately, she was lost in a routine training exercise and Ge'tal vowed to find her at all cost.
Unknown to the Mandalorians, she was "rescued" by the Yautja, whose ship was attacked by her cruiser. For a couple of years, she lived among them. One of the Yautja decided to take her in as her own, and Ni'Sya was trained in the ways of the Yautja. However, she secretly practiced her Mandalorian ways, and wished that one day she could return to her own people.
During one of her training hunts, her mentors were massacred by the Mandalorian known as "Hunter of Hunters". Ni'Sya herself nearly fell to the blade of this ruthless hunter. She later discovered that this Mandalorian was actually Ge'tal, her long lost love. Thus began a new page in their lives. They returned to Mandalore, where they set up a weapons facility. The couple later married in traditional Mandalorian fashion.
Later, the couple moved to the planet Shogun, where they set up a new facility, catering to customers from all over the galaxy. Even the Galactic Empire came to them for some customizations on their TIE Interceptors.
When Mand'alor Boba Fett called for the return of Mandalorians to Mandalore, Ni'Sya and Ge'tal answered thier supreme leader and moved back to her home planet.
Physical appearance and personality traits
Ni'Sya is phisycally small compared to other Mandalorians, which was why she was mistaken for a young Yautja by Ge'tal. Nonetheless, she uses her physical size to her advantage as Ge'tal's spotter when they go out hunting together. She was able to get into tight spots where others could not. Ni'Sya has fair skin, black, shoulder-length hair and dark brown eyes.
Equipment and weapons
Ni'Sya originally wore standard Mandalorian armour made from durasteel, as was the custom for Mandalorian children. This was then replaced with a suit of beskar armour given to her by Ge'tal shortly before her "kidnapping". During her years with the Yautja, she augmented her beskar'gam with chitin obtained from "hard meat", the Yautja's main prey. These creatures had highly acidic blood that could corrode metal. Ni'Sya found a way to coat her armour with chitin, and in the end, she had armour plates that looked "layered". This was left unpainted, as was other Yautja equipment, but upon her reunion with Ge'tal, she painted her armour green with red stripes, the red signifying that she belonged to him (Ge'tal in Mando'a means "red").
WeaponsNi'Sya carried a customised Gra'tua Arms RFB-18 rapid-fire blaster made for her by Ge'tal as her primary weapon. She carried two other blasters as secondary and backup weapons. She also had a Yautja wrist-blade on her right gauntlet, which was a gift from one of her mentors. She had also managed to rig a cloaking device similar to the Yautja's, which greatly helped her in her task as spotter to Ge'tal.
Ni'Sya does not have a ship of her own, but utilised Ge'tal's heavy cruiser "Relentless" on hunting trips and to deliver special-order items that needed a "personal touch". The Relentless is also rigged with a cloaking device, but Ge'tal hardly used it because according to him, he would rather "see the enemy face to face".
Behind the scenes
In real life, Ni'Sya is soulmate and companion to [M.Hanif or Red]. She got her name from the middle two letters in her partner's name and the first three of her real name.Red helped her put the armour together in time for their first public appearance as Mandalorians (and as a couple) on 31st August 2008. Ni'Sya sometimes goes by the name "Butterchoc".
