Pre Vizsla was a male Human from Mandalore and was the leader of the Mandalorian Death Watch faction during the Clone Wars. Seeking to overthrow Duchess Satine Kryze and her pacifistic New Mandalorian government, in order to restore Mandalore to its widespread warrior ways, Vizsla secretly allied himself with Count Dooku and his Confederacy of Independent Systems. While governing Mandalore's moon, Concordia, and maintaining loyalty to Kryze in public, Vizsla led the Death Watch in secret from several Concordian mining camp bases. The Death Watch's terrorist attacks on Mandalore came to a head when Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on Concordia with Kryze to follow leads on the Death Watch. When Kenobi discovered the Death Watch's secret base, Vizsla confronted them with several warriors and revealed himself as the renegades' leader. After engaging Kenobi in a short duel, Vizsla forced him and Kryze to flee Concordia.
Vizsla conspired with Mandalorian Senator Tal Merrik to capture Kryze during her journey to Coruscant, where she intended to plead her case directly to the Galactic Senate, but Merrik was defeated before he could complete his assignment. Amassing an army of Death Watch troops on Concordia in preparation to take over Mandalore, Vizsla was forced to wait until his and Dooku's plot to turn Mandalore against the Republic was completed. Vizsla dispatched a Death Watch assassin to Coruscant to kill Kryze, as her death would remove the opposition to the Senate's upcoming vote to have Republic troops occupy Mandalore?an occupation which would allow the Death Watch to gain the support of Mandalore populace and "liberate" them from the Republic. However, the assassin failed to murder Kryze, and the plot itself fell through, with the Senate voting against occupying Mandalore. With this turn of events, Vizsla was forced to postpone his attack on Mandalore, as his forces would be unable to hold the planet without its people's support.
At some point, Vizsla and his soldiers came accross an escape pod lost in deep space which held the stranded Sith Lords Darth Maul and his brother Savage Opress. Harboring a common hatred of Obi-Wan Kenobi for his actions against them, they planned on having their revenge after their planned conquest of Mandalore. Gathering an army of criminals including the Hutts, the Pykes, and the Black Sun, Vizsla and Maul attacked Sundari, allowing Death Watch to act as heroes to a desperate population after the Duchess's forces failed to stop the criminals. With the support of the Mandalorian people, Vizsla ousted Satine and appointed himself Prime Minister and claimed the ancient title of Mand'alor. He also betrayed his Sith allies who were imprisoned but who managed to escape. Maul challenged Vizsla to a duel to determine the true ruler of the Mandalorians. After a long and difficult duel, Maul defeated Vizsla and executed him for his failures, before claiming his position as leader of the Death Watch.
Pre Vizsla was a defender of the Mandalorians' historic past as warriors that had once fought against the Jedi Order itself. Recognizing the Mandalorians' previous culture and what he believed that they should be, Vizsla possessed a strong desire to return Mandalore and its people to that reality by leading the Death Watch in its campaign to take control of the Mandalorians' homeworld. In the wake of the death of Mand'alor Jango Fett, during the Battle of Geonosis, Vizsla considered himself to be carrying on the traditions of the Mand'alor, embodying the Mandalorian ideal of the "one ruler". He also intended to reignite the ancient feud between the Jedi and the Mandalorians, seeking to make his people enemies of the Jedi once more. Vizsla opposed Duchess Satine Kryze and her New Mandalorian government, viewing them as weak-willed cowards that tarnished the very name Mandalorian. Vizsla was willing to ally himself with Count Dooku and the Confederacy of Independent Systems if it meant that the Death Watch could emerge victorious over Kryze's government and that his vision of the resurgence of the Mandalorians' generations-old warrior culture over the New Mandalorians' pacifistic goals was realized. Vizsla also schemed with the corrupt and evil Senator Tal Merrik to capture Kryze, although Merrik was unsuccessful in his exploits. However, Vizsla, as a loyal governor of Concordia and one of the officials leading the search for the Death Watch, was able to guard his true allegiances from Kryze for some time. His apparent support of Kryze was to such a degree that he came to be considered one of her trusted allies.
Vizsla chose not to fight Kenobi when the latter was unarmed and returned Kenobi's lightsaber to him before engaging him in a duel, confident in his own abilities to make Kenobi join the many Jedi that had fallen by the Darksaber's blade. However, when the battle between them did not go as planned, he became frustrated; after being beaten back twice by Kenobi, Vizsla ordered three of his accompanying troops to finish the Jedi Master off themselves. Also, when the plot to manipulate the Republic Senate into voting to occupy Mandalore failed, Vizsla became livid from this turn of events and allowed his intense frustration to influence his decisions. He intended to continue with invading Mandalore, despite the fact that the Death Watch would not have the people's support in the take-over, and only postponed the attack at Count Dooku's urging for patience. Dooku himself attributed Vizsla's rash desires to his inexperience on the battlefield.
Vizsla displayed incredibly brutality on Carlac by ordering his warriors to slaughter an entire village simply because they tried to stand up to him. In his mind one should never allow the weak to tell them what to do, and any who had the audacity to do so deserved to die. He was also vengeful and wanted to kill Count Dooku for scarring him. Lux Bonteri stated that Vizsla was actually no better than the Sith Lord.
After allying himself with Darth Maul and Savage Opress, Vizsla expressed his intent to betray them to Bo-Katan and treacherously imprisoned Maul and Opress. However when the brothers broke out of prison, he accepted Maul's challenge of a one on one battle, and unlike against Kenobi, Vizsla did not permit his allies to assist him in the battle. Just before he died, Vizsla reasserted his firm belief that only the strongest should rule, and died with pride and dignity.

Shouldn't Vizla have a proficiency in Armour Weapons? I can't find it the stats...

Totally agree, I'd put it at around the 6D mark.
I'm not going to edit this one and add it though, as this was a contribution to the site, and I don't like to change other peoples work.
