Borta was a Dolandu from the moon Skalokor. He was an old friend of Jedi Master Niquon and was known to go to the Jedi for help. During the time of the Old Republic, Borta came across a dismantled assassin droid. He requested that Niquon take a look at the droid, and Niquon's Padawan, Nason Laric came to gather up the droid.
