|Chronological and political information|
- "I avoid Imperial space. I wanna die in a cantina fight, not ticking off some bureaucrat."
- ―Kaliyo Djannis
Kaliyo Djannis was a female Rattataki who lived during the Cold War. She was an anarchistic freelance criminal in the Revolutionary Edge Brigade, and according to her CorSec criminal report, she was known to associate with three individuals named Anspi'shel, Nohn Veyaiko, and The Wheezer.
Kaliyo was under the employ of Suudaa Nem'ro during the Cold War, at the same time the Sith Empire dispatched an undercover operative, under the alias of the known pirate, the Red Blade, to secure an alliance with Nem'ro. After the mysterious murder of Nem'ro's lieutenant, Karrels Javis, Kaliyo confronted the agent. The agent introduced her to Keeper of Imperial Intelligence, who offered to hire her services, which she accepted, though she refused to be called a "servant" of the Empire.
Later on, when Nem'ro became ill, Kaliyo was sent to collect a cure for the Hutt cocked up by her ex-boyfriend, Doc, on a Defender-class light corvette. There, she met the Hero of Tython, a Jedi Knight who would one day destroy the Sith Emperor. While waiting for the cure, she told the Jedi that she thought that Doc was a "worm" and she was "usually worshiped by men beneath her." She wanted to know if there was anything worth eating on this "rust bucket." After the cure was done, she stepped off the ship to take it to Nem'ro, leaving Doc without someone to "help us celebrate."
Second Great Galactic WarEdit
As war reignited between the Republic and Empire, Nine's team was tasked to discover a mysterious third party that destroyed the Shadow Arsenal. Their search took them to Belsavis and Voss, and learned that the organization was called the Star Cabal. Unfortunately, the conspiracy became aware of Nine's attempts to expose them and used their influence to dissolve Imperial Intelligence. Nine's team was drafted into Lord Razer's unit, but Kaliyo arrested due to her criminal record. Despite Nine's pleads on her behalf, Razer would not yield. As Kaliyo screamed promises to revenge, Nine told her to wait for an opportunity.
Sometime later, as the battle for Corellia raged, the Minister of Intelligence, formerly Keeper, secretly sprung Kaliyo from custody as he gathered the remnants of Intelligence to take down the Star Cabal. Kaliyo performed jobs for the Minister and the new Keeper, formerly Watcher Two. Though she received meager pay, Kaliyo stayed for the purpose of revenge against the conspiracy.
Personality and traitsEdit
- Cipher Nine: "Allow me to present Kaliyo Djannis, my loyal and trusted associate."
- Peyar Cortess: "Such an exotic young woman... how is it you come to be here?"
- Kaliyo: "I slid out of mama's womb and picked up a blaster. Now I'm your new friend's bodyguard. Course, you and me could be friends, too. You've got a nice place here—I could stick around awhile."
- ―Kaliyo displays some of her wit and charm.[src]
Kayilo Djannis learned how to speak in Kaleesh, particularly in profanities. Eckard Lokin described it as a "rare and admirable skill." She was highly amoral, but even she was disgusted by Darth Jadus's cruelty.
