A duel took place between the former Jedi Jelph Marrian and the former Sith Saber Orielle Kitai in 3,960 BBY in the aqueduct system in Tahv, the capital city of Kesh. After discovering Marrian's Aurek-class tactical strikefighter hidden in his barn, the Sith-turned-slave Kitai journeyed to Tahv, hoping to use the ship to her advantage. Through the architect Gadin Badolfa, Kitai invited four High Lords to Marrian's farm. She then went to the city's aqueduct system, which she knew from memory, hoping to lure an aerial sentry to her to steal an uvak to return to the farm. There, she spotted Marrian, who had gone to the aqueduct to look for her. Kitai ambushed the former Jedi; however, they both lost their footing in the water, and Kitai lost her lightsaber. Marrian then convinced Kitai to trust him, and the two journeyed back to his farm together, where they encountered Grand Lord Lillia Venn, who had been told of the starship from Kitai's mother, Candra.
