- "O-Vieve had a vision of the Jedi. She claims that an evil force will engulf those who are close to the Jedi ... that darkness surrounds the Jedi ... [that it] comes from within them and then spreads to engulf them ... [She sees] flashes of a future destructive event ... destruction ... from an explosive device sent to destroy an entire planet without a shiver ... an invasion of evil ... evil cloaking our planet like a black cloud ... masked soldiers ... They will bring fear and suffering."
"There is no explosive device powerful enough to destroy a whole planet," Qui-Gon said.
"Not yet, perhaps," O-Vieve corrected, softly, and Qui-Gon felt a shiver go up his spine..."
- ―V-Nen and O-Melie of the planet Kegan tell Qui-Gon Jinn of the prophetic visions of their culture's Benevolent Guide, O-Vieve.
O-Vieve, also known as Vieve, was a Human female who was one of the Benevolent Guides during Kegan's isolationist period. She often had visions of the Galactic Empire's invasion of Kegan, which led her to V-Tan, who had dreams about future events. When they met each other they realized that their visions and dreams matched. Their visions and dreams involved Masked Soldiers invading the planet. They also had dreams and visions of their destruction through an explosive device that could wipe out a planet, hinting at the coming Death Star.[source?] Together, the two developed a system of isolationism in an attempt to thwart the invasion, but the Keganites eventually rejected their leaders upon learning of the brainwashing children underwent at the Re-Learning Circle.
V-Tan and O-Vieve set up an isolationist government that controlled the people rigorously. They were more-or-less dictators on an officially-democratic planet Kegan, allowing votes but controlling the subject of the vote. Furthermore, autohoppers, automatically controlled skyhoppers, were used to monitor the people, their movements, and their conversations. To encourage the isolated behavior, the pair developed a curriculum known as The Learning around 59 BBY. This school of thought emphasized sacrificing one's own desires in favor of contributing to the General Good. A school known as the Learning Circle was set up outside the city to teach kids from the ages of four to sixteen. Furthermore, a secret Re-Learning Circle was created within the Learning Circle to brainwash people to believe as V-Tan and O-Vieve did if they became undisciplined or were considered too physically ill to contribute to society. While Keganites under O-Vieve's rule enjoyed a mostly peaceful society where all of their basic needs were met, the isolationist policy restricted the people from benefiting from advances throughout the galaxy in medicine, technology, and other fields.
- "Obi-Wan took a last look at Kegan from the landing platform ... "I still don't understand how an entire planet could place its trust so blindly in visions and dreams" ...
"We do not know if O-Vieve's visions were wrong, Padawan," Qui-Gon said thoughtfully. "O-Vieve's vision of the future was clouded, but that doesn't make it invalid..."
"That I don't believe," Obi-Wan said. "I can't imagine one central evil controlling the whole galaxy. That would be impossible."
"I hope we do not see it, Obi-Wan," Qui-Gon said. "But we cannot say it is impossible. Haven't you experienced enough of chance and evil in the galaxy to realize that?"
Obi-Wan shook his head stubbornly. "She saw darkness coming from the Jedi itself. That could never happen."
Sun suddenly burst through the clouds overhead, dazzling Qui-Gon's sight. The glare caused Obi-Wan's features to blur and dissolve. For a moment, Qui-Gon didn't see the boy. He saw an elder man, alone, living on a desolate planet, his only companions his dark memories.
Qui-Gon felt the same shiver he'd experienced in O-Vieve's presence ... Then a sudden truth pierced him. That isn't me. It is Obi-Wan ... The future is not fixed, but fluid, he told himself. Visions did not have to come true..."
- ―Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi discuss the visions of O-Vieve, the Benevolent Guide of Kegan.
After Qui-Gon Jinn, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Adi Gallia, and Siri Tachi came to the planet to assess if a baby born on the planet was Force-sensitive, V-Tan and O-Vieve had the child kidnapped and sent to the Re-Learning Circle. The Masters, while searching for Force-sensitive O-Lana and their Padawans, who had also been captured by a Truant Guide, disrupted the system of skyhoppers that closely monitored the populace and helped rescue their Padawans from the secure school. After they escaped, they exposed V-Tan and O-Vieve for their totalitarian ways, and the two rulers (viewed by the populace as overprotective, at best; tyrannical, at worst) were voted down from their posts as the "Benevolent Guides" of Kegan. The Force-sensitive child, the only daughter of V-Nen and O-Melie, was removed by the Jedi team to Coruscant to be trained at the Jedi Temple in the ways of the Force.
