- "Push until it gives."
- ―Khedryn Faal's motto
Khedryn Faal was a male Human captain of the ship Junker. His most striking features were his lazy eye, which presented all of the aspects of life to him, his bad luck at sabacc, which never stopped him from playing, and his profound antipathy toward droids.
Khedryn was born on the remains of Outbound Flight Project in the Redoubt and lost his parents at an early age. He grew into adolescence on the crashed spaceship until he and the other survivors were rescued by Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade Skywalker in 22 ABY. He never shared the other survivors' hatred towards Jedi and held Luke and Mara in high regards. In the following years he traveled and served on many spaceships from the Empire of the Hand to the Outer Rim Territories and the Core Worlds. At sometime he even lived on Corellia and Coruscant but he never called another place than the Redoubt home until he had set foot on Fhost.
Salvage and friendshipEdit
On his travels Khedryn teamed up with the Force-sensitive Cerean math savant Marr Idi-Shael and made him his first mate. Marr proved himself as good friend and exceptional navigator capable of calculating Hyperspace Jumps on par with a Navicomputer. After one of their more illicit enterprises went bad, they were forced to take a detour on there way back to Fhost, during which they picked up an encoded automated distress beacon. It originated from the Frozen moon of a Gas Giant. Upon deciding to salvage whatever was down there later, they returned to Fhost.
Khedryn later lost the coordinates of the beacon in a rigged sabacc game against a criminal, but, with the help of Jaden Korr, they managed to win them back and escape the Black Hole Cantina. Jaden Korr asked them to bring him to the moon which he had seen in a Force vision and Khedryn agreed. Only moments after they arrived in the system they witnessed the arrival of Harbinger, a Sith ship that was carried 5000 years through time by an erroneous hyperspace jump. They also encountered Jedi Master Relin Druur who had caused that time-traveling jump.
After resisting at first Khedryn and Marr agreed to help Jaden reach the surface of the moon and bring Relin on Harbinger to destroy it and its dangerous cargo of Lignan crystal. While Relin and Marr flew Junker into Harbinger's landing bay, Khedryn and Jaden landed on the moon with a shuttle. There, they discovered an old Imperial research station created by Grand Admiral Thrawn. While exploring the station they learned that the scientists had combined DNA from Jedi and Sith, using DNA from Kam Solusar, Mara, Lumiya, Palpatine and others. But the experiment had gotten out of control and the clones had slaughtered the researchers. As Jaden declared that he felt he had to help the clones if any had survived, Khedryn called him obsessed and left for the shuttle. On the way back he realized that he couldn't leave Jaden who had become a friend and decided to return when ran into Kell Douro who had secretly hunted Jaden since Fhost. Kell broke Khedryn's right wrist and his nose before he left him unconscious and unarmed and continued towards Jaden. After regaining consciousness, Khedryn armed himself with the only E-11b blaster rifle left in the station's armory and arrived just in time to kill Kell before he could feed on Jaden, who was exhausted after fighting Kam Solusar's clone. Leaving the station they saw the remaining clones escape in Kell's ship. After seeing Harbinger being destroyed and rejoining with Marr, they left the system.
When Jaden Korr proclaimed that he would have to hunt the remaining clones, Khedryn and Marr offered to help and were accepted.
