"No change comes without conflict. Perhaps my destiny is to be the irritant that forces the discussion, the blister that lets you know your boots don't fit" - Kyp Durron ~
Kyp Durron was a Jedi Knight born on the planet Deyer, 7 years before the Battle of Yavin. His early life was somewhat a tradegy. He grew up very quickly at the young age of eight when the Durron family was charged with treason against the Emperor. His family was harshly punished, Kyp's parents were killed, his brother sent to the Imperial Academy on Cardia, and Kyp himself being sent to the spice mines of Kessel.
During his time on Kessel, Kyp met an old jedi named Vima-Da-Boda who recognized his extreme force sensitivity and began to informally train Kyp and his force powers to basic levels until she was then transferred from Kessel. Years later, after the overthrowing of the prison by Moruth Doole, Kyp meets Han and Chewbacca after being arrested where they escape Kessel together and ultimately finding the Suncrusher, and Daala inside the Maw.
Two months after the Escape of Han, Chewie and Kyp, Kyp started his official training at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Praxeum on Yavin IV where Kyp quickly grew strong in the force. His strength was his misfortune though when he was easily corrupted by Sith-Lord Exar Kun in exchange for knowledge.
From there, Kyp stole the Suncrusher and went on an Anti-imperial Crusade to assist the New Republic where he killed millions of imperials with the Suncrusher.
Kyp later realized what he was doing, and turned back from the light after the defeat of Exar Kun. ~
