A young girl raced up the hill on the outskirts of Coruscant. Her red hair shone in the sun and flowed behind her a glorious curtain. An elderly servant watched from under a tree, sitting on a small folding chair. Her charge was a bundle of energy running until she could run no more. She allowed the child to expend her excess energy, it would make bedtime much easier. The child's name was Khelsia and she came from a legendary background. In long unbroken line she was descended from Nomi Sunrider. Khelsia was already beginning to show force sensitivity and soon her midi chlorian level would be tested. Every expectation was that it would be high. She would then enter the Jedi Academy and become a youngling.
For now however the days were spent in the realm of childhood, playing and learning the little her as yet short attention span would allow. The little girl approached her nanny and said "Nona can we go pretty soon? I'm getting hungry." Khelsia had a seemingly endless appetite and the servant chuckled. "Yes, my pretty poppet we can go. We wouldn't want you to be hungry after all." She took the child's hand and headed for the waiting transport. Khelsia skipped along swinging the old woman's hand as they walked towards the vehicle. The trip home was swift and the driver grinned at the little girl restless fidgeting. Khelsia could be a handful. l at times. Her boundless enthusiasm for everything and a propensity for mischief kept the household staff busy. Khelsia's parents were wealthy both by inheritance and business interests. Her father was a merchant, her mother a learned woman and teacher at the University. Her mother was the descendant of Nomi but she herself had shown no inclination of force sensitivity. When Khelsia had been born however she had known immediately the same would not be so of her daughter.
If ancient stories were true, Khelsia was a throwback to their ancestress. The cap of red hair was baby fine and when the infant opened her eyes even then they were a bright piercing green. Not long after birth several Jedi had come to see her, one an elderly T'wilek named Beldane. "The force is strong in her, even now I can feel it. She is destined to do mighty things. For good it is to be hoped. She will do honor to the House of Sunrider. Though you shall miss her, be comforted that she will make you proud. This I foresee and thus I foretell." Khelsia's mother had been grieved at the idea of the child she already so loved leaving to go become a youngling. She was determined to enjoy her daughter while she could, until the day of separation arrived.
The transport arrived at the whitewashed villa and the nanny stirred in her seat with alarm A strange transport was in the driveway and the light of her heart grew dim. Before they had even exited the vehicle, Nona knew what was happening. Two Jedi waited on the wide veranda and Khelsia's mother stood beside them, her face wet with tears. The old nanny's heart fell with foreboding, she knew the time had come. Khelsia was a shooting star destined to blaze across the galaxy and none could stand in her way. The little girl looked up at her, the green eyes wide with fear. "It will be alright precious, take my hand." The elderly woman patted the child's head in reassurance and the two walked hand in hand towards the stairs. Khelsia gripped her nanny's hand tight the small fingers interwined in the old woman's.
