Background: Shahan Alama was a male Weequay bounty hunter from Sriluur who was active during the Clone Wars. After being kicked out of a pirate gang, he was recruited alongside fellow bounty hunters Aurra Sing and Robonino by the Duros hunter Cad Bane to see how well they would work together. Bane decided to task them with the capture of the mercenary Davtokk, and the trio successfully carried out their mission. Bane, impressed with their teamwork, formed the three into his new posse, and they traveled to the galactic capital of Coruscant to attempt to free the Hutt crime lord Ziro Desilijic Tiure from Republic prison.

During the raid, the bounty hunters captured several senators, holding them hostage in the Republic Executive Building to force Supreme Chancellor Palpatine to free Ziro. Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker was present in the Senate Building and attempted to foil the bounty hunters’ plan, but Alama, Sing, and Robonino managed to find and incapacitate him. Palpatine agreed to free Ziro, and after the Hutt was released, the bounty hunters escaped with Ziro, leaving a system of explosives in the atrium to use the senators as leverage for their escape. Afterward, Bane ordered his posse to go into hiding. Alama traveled to the planet Florrum, where he was attacked first by a Confederate frigate and then by nearby Republic forces. He was forced to crash-land on Florrum, where he found the Weequay pirate Hondo Ohnaka, who intended to hold him for ransom.

Alama usually preferred to work alone, but he also worked well with other such solitary beings. His “excessive nastiness” caused his membership in a pirate gang to be revoked and earned him a reputation as a bad pirate. The Weequay had a sense of self-confidence about him and was not afraid of confronting Anakin Skywalker, a well-known Jedi Knight. However, Alama proved to be vulnerable to certain Force effects, as Skywalker was able to employ a mind trick on the Weequay. Still, Alama was also observant; during investigations of the sentinel droid that Skywalker had destroyed, he noticed instantly that the droid bore no lightsaber marks. From this observation, Alama quickly came to the conclusion that Skywalker was unarmed. After the bounty hunters escaped with Ziro, Bane told them all to go into hiding. He promised that he’d take care of distributing their earnings, and although Alama didn’t trust Bane to do this, he left without his share of the bounty.

Alama was a highly skilled tracker, a competent pilot, and a proficient gunman; and he acquitted himself as a bounty hunter who was quick with a blaster. For weaponry, Alama carried an LL-30 blaster pistol, a blaster rifle, and a razor net, and he often wore a red beret that he had saved from his tenure as a pirate. He also wore boots of nerf-hide, a belt that he had stolen from a Twi’lek noble, and a combat droid arm that was grafted on his right elbow.
