In around 20 BBY, as a child, Kaj was captured along with three fellow Tarasin children, Tiscak, Honna and Li'Iri, due to their innate Force-sensitivity. Their captor, Chevin slaver Phylus Mon, jailed them in a cell in his slave zoo aboard the Animiasma. He also flogged all of the children with his three-tailed barbed whip.
Their disappearance did not go unnoticed: Jedi Master Lanius Qel-Bertuk knew of the kidnappings, and even suspected Phylus Mon, but still could do nothing to rescue them.
The children were kept in the cell, the only Force-sensitives in the zoo. They instinctively disliked fellow prisoner Halin Bok. Honna also managed to communicate with the Mantellian Savrips in another cell, Clu, Taf and Mev. The Savrip promised to go through the energy bars to rescue the children should anyone try to take them against their will. Honna was scared of that, because the energy bars could easily kill the Savrips should they ever attempt that.
Phylus Mon surgically inserted an explosive near the heart of each of his slaves. The explosive would be activated in the case of Phylus Mon's death, but it could also be deactivated with the impact of an ion weapon. All the slaves in Phylus Mon's zoo were also regularly battered.

Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ The Living Force Campaign Guide states that the Living Force campaign is set one year after the Invasion of Naboo, an event that is dated to 32 BBY by The New Essential Chronology. As the Living Force adventure Philology moved the campaign forward ten years to the time of the Clone Wars, and the adventure Night's Homecoming established that by Year 4 of the campaign over a year had elapsed since the events of Philology, A Mon Alone can therefore be dated to circa 20 BBY.
