Name: Rika Somed
Rank: Jedi Master
Tier: Low 1
Background: Rika Somed is a Jedi Mandalorian who served the Mandalorian Knight and Dorjander Kace, following him to the era of the Clone Wars to serve the Neo Mandalorian Empire. Having originally sided with the Mandalorin Knights during the Mandalorian Civil War, Somed was extremely dedicated to the Mandalorian Way.
Having been a founding member of the Mandalorian, Somed was treated highly by Kace and thus served in leading positions during both the Mandalorian Civil War and the period of the Neo-Mandalorian Empire. Somed was noted to have sided against Deathwatch, and at one point, even duelled Pre Vizsla during Darth Maul's raid of Sundari. Upon the Neo-Mandalorian Empire's collapse, Somed felt to Concordia, and spent time in brief exile until things cooled down.
Somed would briefly rejoin the Jedi after having briefly led the Mandalorian Knights, though would leave the Jedi Order upon the slaughter of her Mandalorian Order. Rika would retreats to Mandalore, residing in a temple where she trains a Mandalorian she came across called Havoc O'Cabur.

Weaknesses: Rika Somed is extremely confident in their ability to use a lightsaber, and as such, views the skills forged at the time of the Mandalorian Wars as superior to those belonging to Clone Wars practitioners. As such, Somed would challenge those stronger than her with the delusion of victory, even if they are outmatched. Forcing Somed to obey Mandalorian customs in battle, and then using the honour of single combat against them could prove to be a viable strategy.
