Saelhen lost his family and freedom when the ship that was taking them to a new life on Kiros was attacked by pirates.
Sold as a slave to the Empire, he spent the rest of his childhood and his early adult years working construction sites where he showed a certain talent for leadership, keeping the other slaves in line and out of trouble through sheer charisma only.
His life took an unexpected turn when a Sith Lord of low stature took offense at the sight of alien slaves working on his future estate. His attempt to shower them with Force lightening was met by a solid Force shield Saelhen had cast by instinct.
He was then sent to Korriban for training at the Academy where he slowly rose to power and became Darth Imperius without ever forgetting where he came from.
