Longtime rival of the technological savant Darth Mekhis, Darth Hadra ascended to her foe's seat on the Dark Council after a classified SIS operation resulted in Mekhis's disappearance. So far as the Republic is concerned, Hadra is no improvement‒although less experienced than her predecessor, she is more ambitious, more treacherous and a superior combatant.
Early in her rise to power, Hadra was the subject of unflattering rumors‒proof that even in the Empire, average citizens enjoy gossiping about those in power. Word was that the strikingly attractive Hadra achieved the title of Sith Lord via a romantic relationship with Darth Malgus. Even fellow members of the Sith leadership wondered if such whispers might be true.
The accusations are ridiculous, of course. Anyone who becomes a Darth and lasts longer than a month has clearly earned her position through considerable power and sheer force of will. The truth is that Darth Hadra never required seduction to get her way; murder was always more effective.
