I live by a code but I don’t let it define me.
Dedicated and strong in the Force, Khessya spent her childhood under the tutorship of one Master after the other as her abilities often and quickly exceeded theirs. This allowed her to explore a great many cultures and traditions and opened her mind to different perspectives and experiences.
But that lack of stability left her with poor social skills and despite her apparent talent for it, she finds it difficult to connect and relate to others. Additionally, while her constant moving exposed her to the best the galaxy has to offer, it also exposed her to the worst, making her wary of others’ intentions.
Khessya is determined to put her talents as a Jedi to help and protect others and she works tirelessly for galactic peace.
Straightforward and focused, she’ll only forgive once but will never forget and she’ll always let people, friends of foes, know where they stand with her and is often called a fist of iron in a durasteel glove.
That atypical attitude for a Jedi led her to form unusual but strong friendships from Trandoshan hunter Qyzen Fess to bitter revolutionary Zenith and more recently with Theron Shan and Lana Beniko but also with Lanyssa, formerly known as Cipher Nine and the Dark Council member known as Darth Imperius.
During her trials on Tython, she and a Padawan named Imraehyr cleared the way for a rescue mission for Master Relnex. They built a strong friendship throughout the years and their respective roles within the Jedi Order.
During the Rishi and Yavin 4 events, she built a strong friendship that quickly turned into something deeper with SIS Agent Theron Shan. The relationship left her somewhat conflicted at first as she couldn’t help but feel she was breaking Grand Master Satele Shan’s trust but after almost losing Theron on Ziost, she chose to accept her feelings for what they were and make the best of the situation.
When Darth Marr asked for her help to investigate Vitiate’s presence after Ziost, she answered his call, leading her to become the Outlander and Commander of the Eternal Alliance after five years trapped in carbonite.
