After two years she was able to buy a ship. She bought a broken down, rusty, YT-1300. Luckily she had some knowledge in repairing ships like a YT-1300. Since it couldn’t fly itself she contacted a friend who had a ship that could carry it. She spent four months on her friend’s ship repairing her own. With a fresh coat of paint she named it “Mishap” although she didn’t find buy that ship a Mishap at all.
Tyra traveled in her YT-1300 exploring the galaxy for a time period. In her travels she was hired by Ubrikkian Industries. After several months she went to the New Republic where she became part of the Ministry of Culture.

After sometime she decided to see what it was like outside the New Republic’s large umbrella. She went to Sienar Technologies. However she found it hard not to be with out all her friends, not to mention missing her fiancé, back in the New Republic. Tyra ended up in the New Republic PSA Keer Union. Tyra soon got involved with Scott Hood’s clan, Bha`Lir, which was involved in ship production for the Keer Nation.
Tired of the New Republic’s politics left the New Republic once again in pursuit of a change in life. She ended up in the Avance Security Forces in Avance Coalition as a Flight Corporal.
