Iela was born on the distant barren world of Nusami in the Outer Rim Territories. Nusami was a desolate world orbiting a dying sun. Iela was only 3 when her latent abilities in the force were discovered – and even then it was only by accident.
A Jedi research team, who were in a nearby system examining ancient ruins, were attacked by pirates. The Jedis’ ship was heavily damaged and the closest system was that of Nusami. Upon arrival the ship collided with a asteroid sending the vessel and its crew hurtling towards the world’s surface.
After a short and fiery ride through the atmosphere, the Jedi ship crashed killing all aboard except for the lead Jedi, Master Uron-Don Sakron. Braving the desert the Master Sakron somehow managed to make his way across the barren landscape to the village where Iela’s parents lived. Upon arriving in the village, Master Sakron collapsed, exhausted by his journey.
Master Sakron was well cared for by the villages’ inhabitants for 3 long days during which time he was haunted by lucid visions of a terrible future involving a young woman.
After being rested back to health Master Sakron begun to sense strong emanations in the force from somewhere in the village. Once fully recovered, he begun helping where he could while also looking for the sensation he had felt. Eventually Master Sakron found the source of the disturbance in the form of Iela.
Master Sakron approached Iela’s parents, informed them of Iela’s “special gift” and requested that he be given permission to train her. Iela’s parents agreed, and soon after Iela was introduced to the ways of the Jedi.
Master Sakron knew that his ability to train Iela was limited, and fraught with danger at her young age. As a result, he travelled across the desert to his crashed ship to repair the sub-space transceiver. This would allow him to contact the a nearby ship allowing them to be rescued.
The responses to Master Sakron’s transmissions were few. Most responded that they were on their way to some other destination and couldn’t help. This lack of response lasted for some months but eventually the entire village including Master Sakron and Iela were rescued by an older smuggler and transported to Coruscant just prior to Nusami’s sun went nova.
Once there Master Sakron requested that Iela be given over to the Jedi Council to continue her training. Although reluctant, knowing that they would never see their child again, Iela’s parents agreed, feeling as though they owed their rescuer something. Iela was soon inducted into the Jedi Academy and begun her progression to Padawan.
When Iela turned 15 years of age, she was given over to the Jedi Master Haenis Sinne. What was not known was that Master Sinne was a Dark Jedi in waiting. He was dissatisfied with the way the Council was bowing to the Senate’s wishes and had begun studying the dark arts. It was not long before he commenced his research into the rituals of the Dathomir Witches, the Tara’Sta and of course, the Sith.
When he was given Iela as his Padawan he sensed something within her, and begun training her to be his new dark apprentice. Luckily the Jedi Council detected this and moved against Master Sinne. Unfortunately by the time the Council had made their move, Sinne had disappeared but not before erasing some of Iela’s memories. What was erased is still unknown.
The council debriefed the young Padawan and found that some of the skills she had learnt were also removed by her dark Master. Knowing they must act quickly, the council gave ownership of Iela over to the great Jedi Library. There she became the student of the Jedi Knight Segwin Drathis who was studying himself to become a Jedi Master. Segwin was a field researcher for the library and specialised in the collection and study of Jedi Artefacts. His specialty though was the Sith.
