Borsk Fey’lya was a male Bothan whose career spanned much of the history of the New Republic. A political activist from an early age, Fey’lya’s prodigious skill at manipulation and strategy enabled him to emerge as a leading figure in the Alliance to Restore the Republic and retain a base of political power throughout the various crises of the fledgling New Republic. Fey’lya’s ultimate ascension to power was secured in 23 ABY, and he led the government as its Chief of State during the Yuuzhan Vong’s invasion of the galaxy. In the waning days of the New Republic, as the aliens conquered Coruscant around him, Fey’lya committed suicide in his offices, taking over twenty five thousand Yuuzhan Vong warriors with him to his death and securing his place in history as a Bothan martyr.
Throughout his time in the political theatre of the New Republic, Fey’lya won and lost many allies, as was his wont during his constant, ever-ambitious quest for power. His rivalry with the reputable Admiral Ackbar, dislike of the New Jedi Order and anti-Human sentiment led many to possess an unfavorable opinion of the Bothan, though Fey’lya’s obsession in his pursuit of power was mirrored in his belief that his actions should enable the best for the most. His fear of the usurpation of his power was reflected in his antagonistic attitude to the armed forces, whom he perceived as a contender to politics, and, having failed to assume control of the New Republic military during the Thrawn campaign, the Bothan would consistently undermine its reputation, most notably during the early days of the Yuuzhan Vong War when it served his interests to refuse the existence of the alien threat.
