Appears in set 9525-1, Pre Viszla's Mandalorian Fighter
Pre Vizsla was a human male Mandalorian warrior who led a terrorist organization, known as Death Watch, during the final years of the Galactic Republic. Formerly the governor of Concordia, Vizsla longed to restore the warrior heritage of his homeworld, the planet Mandalore, by overthrowing Duchess Satine Kryze's pacifist regime. Drawing on the support of his Mandalorian commandos, Vizsla made his bid for power during the galaxy-wide Clone Wars but failed several times in his efforts to conquer Mandalore. Following his failed alliance with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, however, Vizsla joined the renegade Sith Lord Maul's Shadow Collective. As a result of their pact, he ultimately succeeded in taking over Mandalore with widespread public support following the collapse of order and stability due to Maul's machinations.
Having achieved his goal, Vizsla turned against Maul, leading to a lightsaber duel to the death. In the end, Vizsla was defeated and executed by Maul, who claimed his one-time ally's weapon—the Darksaber, a Jedi-Mandalorian relic of Clan Vizsla—and therefore leadership over all Mandalorians. Despite Maul's victory, his claim was opposed by one of the late Vizsla's lieutenants, Bo-Katan Kryze, who refused to accept an outsider as her leader. This act tore Death Watch asunder between Kryze's supporters and those who declared their loyalty to Maul, becoming known as his Mandalorian super commandos.
