|Chronological and political information|
In 32 BBY Monchar betrayed Darth Sidious and Trade Federation Viceroy Nute Gunray when he fled the Federation freighter Saak'ak with a Sith holocron containing information about the upcoming Invasion of Naboo, hoping to make a fortune selling it.
Monchar attempted to sell the holocron to Darnada, a Black Sun vigo. However, Darnada laughed him off, disbelieving Monchar's claims. Luckily for Monchar, he left Darnada immediately before Darth Maul arrived to slaughter Darnada and his entire operation except Asa Naga who managed to escape.
Nute Gunray dispatched a bounty hunter named Mahwi Lihnn on the suggestion of Rune Haako to bring back Monchar before Sidious could discover his betrayal. Unknown to Gunray, Sidious had already sent his Sith apprentice, Darth Maul. Maul tracked Monchar to his domicile, where he proceeded to kill Monchar's Trandoshan bodyguard, Gorth, and two Quarrens, then beheaded Monchar while suspending him in the air with the Force.
