Discovered to be Force-sensitive at an early age, he trained at the Coruscant Jedi Temple throughout his childhood, before being accepted as the Padawan of Jedi Knight Shaak Ti. Unlike most Padawan-Master pairs, he and Ti did not accept journey missions from the Jedi High Council; instead Ti chose to train the boy in the wilds of Shili. Studying the ways of the Force and how to survive in the wilderness, Ti's training methods emphasized training over experience.
When it was deemed that this Padawan had completed his training, the young Padawan faced his Trials of Knighthood back on Coruscant and passed, ascending to the rank of Knight. Accepting missions from the High Council, the Knight was murdered on one of his first assignments by a vicious killer.
The death of her former apprentice gave Shaak Ti the unpleasant distinction of having trained two Padawans who met a violent death after becoming a Knight, the second being the late Fe Sun. Though she was overcome by grief, Ti was able to continue, using her strength to stay strong and true to the Force.
