|Queen Miraj Scintel|
Miraj Scintel was the Queen of the Zygerrian Empire during the Clone Wars period and although it is not revealed as to how she assumed this position however it is clear that Miraj was an ambitious and determined leader who wished to see her people's empire returned to its former glory. This oppurtunity came when the Zyggerians made contact and later allied with the CIS. After Count Dook and Darts D'nar imprisoned the colonists of Kiros she planned to sell the Togruta artisans at auction in order to gain favor with Count Dooku and the Separatist Alliance. Having appropriated a slave ship and an invitation to the auction from a Zygerrian slaver, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano and clone trooper Captain Rex infiltrated the auction. This operation involved Anakin posing as a slave trader named Lars Quell while the others went looking for the Togrutan colonists. Anakin quickly attracted Miraj's personal interest with his boldness and rather disrespectful behavior towards her, and with his rescuing her from the assassination attempt by a young slave girl.
After arranging a successful sale of slaves which saw Obi-Wan outed as a Jedi and taken off world Miraj had Anakin made her personal servant. Scintel saw the oppurtunity to enslave a Jedi as a chance to display the power of the Zygerrian Empire's newfound determination and will, that by showing that even a Jedi could be made a slave she would show the Republic that it would soon fall. However after learning that Scintel had not executed Skywalker as Count Dooku had originally instructed the Count immediately travelled to Zygerria to personally ensure Anakin's death. When Dooku arrived and met with the Queen she refused to accept his directive which prompted Darth Tyrannus to reveal that he had planned to assist Atai Molec, Scintel's prime minister, her throne in the event of her disobidience. Enraged Miraj drew her shock whip from her belt and attempted to attack Dooku and Molec but was quickly incapacitated by the Count's force choke which eventually led to her death shortly there after. Before she draw her final breath Miraj told Anakin that he was right, that she was indeed nothing more than a slave herself.
