BUT SHE DID! Lol. In the Mara Jade comics, when she felt the emperor’s death and saw the vision of Luke and Vader “strike him down”. She was sapped of strength and unconscious when admiral Daala showed up to arrest her (cause of evil girl pettiness). Mara was imprisoned and hella close to throwing in the towel... but the ONE THING that she latched to kept her going in anger... The Last Command. That was now her purpose. And it’s pretty cool that you compare her to a samurai; an artist on Pinterest has this Asian inspired painting that is multiple canvases of star wars persons as feudal Japan characters... and on the emperors panel you see a dainty female samurai with magenta blade and flame red hair. WANT IT.
