A Kajain'sa'Nikto from the planet Kintan, Chian was identified as Force-sensitive and given over to the Jedi Order for training in the ways of the Force. Assigned to the Mighty Bear Clan, an Initiate Clan whose members were known for their bravery, Initiate Chian received his earliest instruction from his clan leader, Grand Master Yoda.
During one of the clan's daily lightsaber instructional courses on the Temple's veranda, Master Obi-Wan Kenobi approached Grand Master Yoda with a question. It appeared the Temple's Archives were incomplete and missing a system. One of Chian's peers, J. K. Burtola, suggested that someone had erased the files, therefore explaining the Archives' seeming incompleteness.
