Conder Kyl was a Chandrilan slicer who worked for the New Republic following the Battle of Endor. In 5 ABY, he developed a romantic relationship with the former Imperial loyalty officer Sinjir Rath Velus, who had defected to the New Republic. He alerted Princess Leia Organa after a New Republic probe droid intercepted a transmission of Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck ordering an orbital bombardment of Kashyyyk. Following the attack on Chandrila, Conder helped the New Republic Security Bureau to analyse the microchip implants inside the heads of the former Ashmead's Lock prisoners. Later, Sinjir decided to leave Conder after believing that he was not able to be a good partner for Kyl.
Conder Kyl was a Chandrilan human male who lived during the rise of the New Republic, the successor government to the Alliance to Restore the Republic. He was one of the top slicers employed by the New Republic in 5 ABY. Conder was gay and had feelings for other men. While helping the New Republic to break into the head of an Imperial interrogator droid during the hunt for Moff Gorgon, Conder met and fell in love with Sinjir Rath Velus, a former Imperial loyalty officer who had joined the New Republic and hunted Imperial fugitives.
After Sinjir had returned from a mission to capture Vice Admiral Perwin Gedde, Conder met up with Sinjir at a seaside bar off Junari Point, a few kicks away from the Chandrilan capital Hanna City. After chatting about drinks, Conder proceeded to embrace Sinjir and reassured him that Chandrila was a safe and open place. Sinjir was uncomfortable about public displays of affection and tried to dissuade Conder. However, Conder was unperturbed.
The two men when soon accosted by two patrons known as Mister Browscar and Miss Scowlface who told Sinjir that he was not welcome at the bar because he was an "ex-Imperial." When Conder vouched for his friend, Sinjir tried to calm the situation. Sinjir then gave a brief speech saying that the Empire was breaking up and that the New Republic should give ex-Imperials like him a second chance. When Browscar struck him in the head, Sinjir was about to throw his hot mug of caf at the man when Conder intervened and advised him that they could leave in peace. Conder and Sinjir left he bar and returned to his apartment. While Conder slept, Sinjir returned to the bar and exacted revenge on Browscar and Scowlface; beating Browscar unconscious with a mug and breaking Scowlface's nose.
A month later, Conder was on duty when a New Republic probe droid in the Kashyyyk system transmitted footage of the orbiting Imperial Star Destroyers commencing orbital bombardment of the Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk. The probe droid also intercepted footage of Grand Moff Lozen Tolruck ordering the Star Destroyer]s to destroy all life on the planet in response to a Wookiee slave uprising. Conder informed Princess Leia Organa, who offered to pay him credits in return for his service. However, Conder told her that this particular job was pro bono. When Leia replied that she owed his credits, he reassured her that she could pay next time.
Following the attack on Chandrila, Conder undertook freelance work for the New Republic Security Bureau at the recommendation of Princess Leia. He was tasked with hacking into the small inorganic biochips they had found in the brain steams of each of the Ashmead's Lock prisoners, who had involuntarily attacked the New Republic leadership under orders from Fleet Admiral Gallius Rax. Shortly later, his friend Sinjir returned from Kashyyyk after taking part in the successful New Republic liberation of the planet from Imperial rule.
When Sinjir remarked that he was "both better now than he was and worse", Conder held Sinjir's hands and reassured him that things would be alright. After Sinjir kissed Conder, he told Conder that he had to leave the relationship because he felt that his flawed character made him an unworthy partner for Conder.
