Natasi Daala was an admiral in the Imperial Navy who debuted in Kevin J. Anderson’s The Jedi Academy Trilogy (books that are now considered Legends).
Daala was the first woman to become an admiral in the Imperial Navy. Wilhuff Tarkin was her mentor and at one point lover. She was a ruthless officer over her long career who didn’t care for Force users whether they fell on the light or dark side.
Daala appeared in over a dozen Legends books, including several Fate of the Jedi novels, and was mentioned in many more.
