- ―Ben Skywalker, proposing the clan name
The Bright Sun Clan was the clan name adopted by the Raining Leaves Clan, a clan of Dathomiri witches led by Kaminne Sihn; and the Broken Columns Clan, a clan of men led by a Hapan named Tasander Dest, when the two clans merged.
In 43.5 ABY, the two clans convened on their annual meeting north of Redgill Lake to trade and form marriages. There, the two clans negotiated the combination of their clans into one. When the clan members were unable to agree what their new clan's name should be, the argument was resolved by Jedi Knight Ben Skywalker when he suggested the name of Bright Sun. The name proved acceptable to both clans, as its symbolism related to both clan names.The bright sun clan then fought the Nightsisters a war which they won with the help of Luke and Ben Skywalker and the Solos.
