|~ Kyle Katarn|
Kyle Katarn was a human male Jedi Battlemaster in Luke Skywalker's New Jedi Order. He was born during the final years of the Galactic Republic to the Force sensitive farmer Morgan Katarn and Patricia Katarn on the Outer Rim colonized moon Sulon. After his mother's death at the hands of a malfunctioning security droid, he would go on to join an Imperial Academy. After learning of the death of his father at the hands of rebel soldiers, he developed a loathing for the fledgling rebellion against the Galactic Empire and would become a more dedicated Imperial Stormtrooper cadet. Before his graduation and promotion to an officer in the Stormtrooper Corps however, he would come in contact with a band of rebels led by Jan Ors, a rebel agent whose life he had once spared, and was shown a video proving that the "rebel attack" which killed his father, himself an agent of the rebellion, was staged by imperial forces in order to paint the rebellion as nothing more than terrorists who have no qualms when it comes to killing innocents. Disillusioned with the empire, Katarn would flee with Jan Ors and become a mercenary and rebel agent himself. He would undertake many dangerous missions for the young Alliance to Restore the Republic including the theft of the plans for the Death Star I and sabotaging important systems on the Death Star II.
After the fall of the empire and rise of the New Republic, Kyle would learn of his Force sensitive heritage from the recently murdered Jedi Master Qu Rahn, who was a close friend of his father. He would take up Rahn's lightsaber and make his way to the Valley of the Jedi on the planet Ruusan, where he would grow in power and skill and manage to defeat the Imperial Inquisitor Jerec and his band of Dark Jedi, who planned to use the power of the Valley of the Jedi for their own twisted ends. Kyle would eventually go on to become a student of Luke Skywalker. Although hesitant at first to train for fear of falling to the Dark Side, as he once almost had while training with Mara Jade, he would take up the ways of the Force and his lightsaber once again after his partner Jan Ors was seemingly killed by Desann, a former student of Luke's who had fallen to the Dark Side himself. After Desann's defeat, Kyle would rejoin the New Jedi Order and rise to the rank of Master. He would go on to become a Battlemaster in the order and one of its wisest and most renowned Jedi. Years later, he would be a major player in and live through the devastating Yuuzhan Vong War, eventually joining the newly formed Jedi High Council and being one of Luke's most trusted advisors.
