|Chronological and political information|
Candra Kitai was a female Human Force-sensitive born into the Lost Tribe of Sith on Kesh. She achieved the rank of High Lord, earning her a seat on the Tribe's ruling Circle of Lords. She also gave birth to a daughter, Orielle, who became a Sith Saber. After a short period of slavery, Kitai became the Grand Lord of the Lost Tribe of Sith.
In 3,960 BBY, Kitai attended a rake-riding event in the Korsinata with her daughter. During the event, the uvak wrangler representing their family, Campion Dey, attacked Grand Lord Lillia Venn. During the ensuing confusion, Dey was killed, along with the High Lords Dernas and Pallima. The Kitais immediately fell under suspicion for plotting against the Grand Lord, and Candra was soon captured, although Orielle managed to escape to the home of her friend, Jelph Marrian.
Candra lived with her slaves and her daughter, Orielle, at Starfall, a country estate south of Tahv. As the second most powerful individual in the Tribe, neutral in the political feud between the Red and Gold factions of the Tribe, Candra was considered a likely candidate for Grand Lord upon the death of Venn; and her daughter was slated to lead the Sith Sabers in the future.
Following the assassination attempt of the Grand Lord, she and her daughter had been condemned to slavery by Venn. All their possessions were carried out of the house and burned in a bonfire.
Slavery and betrayalEdit
After two weeks of forced labor, shoveling uvak manure in an uvak exhibit facility in Tahv that her daughter called "the zoo", she received a visit from Ori. Candra was still wearing her ceremonial gown from Donellan's Day. Ori told her mother about a vessel she had found, and asked how she could use it to their advantage. Candra told her to contact the architect Gadin Badolfa, a friend of the Kitai family. Through Badolfa, she could contact four High Lords from the former Red and Gold factions, which had been dissolved after the assassination attempt, and invite them to the farm to see the ship for themselves. Badolfa assured Orielle that the High Lords could help her free Candra from Venn's clutches, which Orielle realized was more important than restoring their former positions in the Tribe.
Orielle arrived at the farm, accompanied by her friend, Jelph, who hid out of sight while Ori called out to the High Lords. She was instead confronted by Grand Lord Lillia Venn and the Lords Sawj and Flen Luzo. Venn immobilized Ori with the Force and explained that, although she had allowed Gadin Badolfa to deliver Kitai's messages, Candra had alerted Venn to the meeting, betraying her daughter in exchange for what Venn called "improved working conditions." While Venn entered Marrian's starfighter, Orielle was rescued by him and led toward the river as Venn powered up the starfighter, unaware that Marrian had created an anti-theft system for the vessel, consisting of proton torpedoes and thousands of kilograms of ammonium nitrate-based explosives. As Venn ascended, the torpedoes detonated, killing Venn, the Luzos, and the guards. Orielle and Marrian fled the farm, which, along with the entire bank, sank into the river as a result of the explosion.
Grand Lord of the TribeEdit
After Lillia Venn's death, Venn’s rivals attacked her supporters first, and then one another. While Orielle left everything behind and lived the rest of her life in secrecy, in a hut in the mountains with Jelph Marrian and their three children, Candra ultimately became the successor of Lilia Venn as Grand Lord of the Lost Tribe of Sith.
Although the only notable achievement of her tenure was the closure of the zoo of Tahv, in 2,975 BBY, an aircraft used by the Sith during the conquest of the other continent of Kesh, Alanciar, was named in her honor in an effort to rehabilitate the past of the tribe after a thousand years civil war.
