"I'm a fighter. I've always been a fighter. The few times when I have been at leisure, I've been miserable. I want challenges, I crave them."
―Mara Jade Skywalker
"Yeah, it's true. Now tell me who blabbed so I can go cut his head off."
―Mara's response to a couple of Jedi trainees questioning her past as an Emperor's Hand
"She is, shall we say, an experiment."
"I hope your salary is more generous than your costume, Miss uh…"
"You, uh… can call me Arica."
―C-3PO and Mara Jade
"Victims run off and hide. Prey runs off and hides. But I'm not a victim. And I'm not prey. I'm the Emperor's Hand. I am the ultimate predator. And it's time for Dequc and Black Nebula to die."
―Mara during her hunt for Dequc
"If only for that, you deserve to die."
―Mara Jade, to Luke Skywalker
"For I have foreseen that Mara Jade will bow before me. One Mara Jade, or another."
