If there were one word to describe Tani Meyer, it would be intense. She is a battle hardened commando width the skills to match. But beneath the tough and demanding, is a caring mother that would do anything to protect those she cares about.
Tani has strange ways of training people, especially Andis [link]
. She “tests” his skill by attacking him out of the blue and forcing him into a duel her. She says she does it to help him be prepared for anything and finds areas where he may be lacking. History:
Tani was born in 63 BBY in the town of Solykad on Mandalore. The daughter of Ar’gan Meyer, at a young age, she was shown to be strong in the Force.
During the Mandalorian Civil War, she fought at the Battle of Breshig, where she singlehandedly wiped out a large opposing force, and became known as the “Hellhound of Breshig.”
Shortly before the beginning of the Clone Wars, she took her father’s place as head of the clan. When the war began she decided that the clan should stay out of the war, and let the Republic and Separatists fight it out.
After the Republic fell and the Empire rose, she opposed the Imperial occupation, she eventually led guerilla campaigns against the occupying forces.
The responsibility of leading Clan Meyer eventually was passed on to her son Andis.
When the Yuuzhan Vong attacked Mandalore, Tani lead the defense of Solykad, even in her old age she was a deadly opponent. After the Yuuzhan Vong began the orbital bombardment of the planet, she used the greatest of her strength to protect Solykad from harm. She died of exhaustion, saving Solykad from harm and at the cost of her own life.Masters/Teachers:

, Akero, Marko, Shaya, and Tes, among others.Force Abilities:
Force Boot*Tani is the creator of Force Boot, a technique where the user exerts the Force through the heel of the foot. Similar to Force Push it’s used within a kick to send an opponent, even at a distance, flying. She often uses it in combination with her T’ad Kad fighting style. By slamming her foot against the ground, it releases a shock wave that radiates out from around her, almost like a 360 degree Force Push.
