Kiara Olvidan was a Human female who was the daughter of Faskus Olvidan, who was sent by Byalfin Dyur under the direction of Lumiya to hide the Amulet of Kalara in a cave on Ziost as part of an elaborate test for Ben Skywalker. Her father brought Kiara with him to Ziost, where he was fatally wounded rescuing her from their landed YT-2400 freighter, the Blacktooth, under attack by pirates also in Lumiya's employ.
Ben, under the impression that Kiara's father was a Sith Acolyte, attacked him and exacerbated his wounds. He died after asking Ben to take care of Kiara. Ben, reasoning that Kiara would hinder his mission to return the Amulet to Jacen Solo, initially left her to die; however, after viewing a prerecorded message from his parents wishing him a happy fourteenth birthday, Ben returned to Kiara's encampment for her. In their journey across Ziost, accompanied by an astromech droid named Shaker, the two were under the constant threat of a starfighter flown by one of Byalfin Dyur's pilots as ordered by Lumiya, and vicious wild neks, and starvation. The two eventually escaped Ziost aboard a Sith Meditation Sphere piloted by Ben, who returned Kiara to her homeworld of Drewwa.
Ben believed that she might be Force-sensitive.
