Rethkast Prin was born on Dantooine, where he grew up in a small agrarian community. His abilities in the Force attracted the interests of the Mon Calimari Jedi Master Lumgup and he began training with Master Lumgup at a 8 years of age.
After training at Coruscant, alongside of fellow Khil Jedi Padawan Revel Xamor, Rethkast earned the role of a Padawan at the age of 20, after completing his first set of Trials. His trial came upon Rethkast as a surprise. He found himself coming across information dealing with imminent Sith activity on Coruscant. With no time to spare, Rethkast tracked down the Sith infiltrator, despite his lack of ability in investigation. Confronting the Sith, Rethkast fought an intense duel versus the foe. The Sith attempted to lure Rethkast into giving into his darker emotions, but he failed and the Sith surrendered to Rethkast.
When Rethkast held firm to the light side of the Force and did not strike down the Sith, he had unknowingly passed his first set of trials. The “Sith” revealed himself as the Jedi Sentinel Aden, who was helping Master Lumgup in his first set of Trials.
After training as a Padawan for several years, Master Lumgup sent Rethkast to the planet Karkateen. There he joined Master Aden, who was assembling a group of Padawan apprentices to aid the Republic’s forces in their attempt to take back Karkateen from the Sith Empire. After three grueling years of war, the group of a dozen Padawans that had started this mission had dwindled to six. It was then that the Sith launched a massive offensive against the Republic forces. In the chaotic and bloody retreat from the planet Master Aden and two other Padawans sacrificed themselves guaranteeing the escape of Rethkast and the three remaining Padawans; but most importantly, they ensured the escape of a a platoon of Republic forces. Karkateen fell to the massive Sith assault and the Republic was forced to retreat.
Shaken after the years of grueling war, watching his comrades at arms fall, one after the other, Rethkast returned to Coruscant. After a few weeks respite, Master Lumgup brought Rethkast and Revel Xamor together again, and gave them a new mission for the Republic. Scarred and still torn by the war, Rethkast hopes that in helping Ord Mantell join the Republic, he can in some way make up for the loss of Karkateen, and for the losses the Jedi Order suffered there. Joining up with Revel’s travelling companions, the “trader” Parradan Hevila and his “assistant”, the Jawa Keeza, the party of four left Coruscant for Ord Mantell.
