Nils Cerana was born Istar Renn, the child of a family of government functionaries and academics on the Expansion Rim planet of Hunara. At age 10 he showed signs of sensitivity to the Force and was sent to the Jedi Temple. His parents were proud of having a child selected for training by the Jedi Order and were humiliated by the order’s rejection of Nils. Too old, they said. Too impetuous, too angry. Too much anxiety, too much fear.

The rejection haunted Nils. Everyone knew the Jedi Order had found him unsuitable. Everyone knew he was defective. His parents careers stalled and though they said nothing he knew that his rejection by the Jedi was partly to blame. The Empire had outlawed the Jedi and killed them wherever they found them, but he took no joy in that. The Force was all he had left and it had become dangerous to pursue it. There was no future for him on Hunara. So he left.

On Jerewah he became the right hand man and friend to Captain Yvaine Farrunner and her ship Voidwalker for two years before leaving her on Aserk to explore ancient ruins of Sith Temples. On Idraskar he met Senior Hala of the Monks of the Celestial Wheel. They denied him membership by shared their wisdom and training when he helped fight off the Bloody Stars Gang. On Sian-je he fell in with confidence man and trickster Chalen Karr when they attempted to find the lost treasure of the Tyrant Manikang the Ninth.

Nils is hard and reserved, by rarely cruel. He does not trust easily, but once given his loyalty is strong. He has been battered and tossed by the vicissitudes of fortune and expects similar resiliency from others. He is disciplined and controlled, but beneath his passions run deep. Nils needs the friendship of other beings more than he lets on and while calculating he is capable of compassion and generosity. He rejects the restrictions of the Jedi but does not embrace the brutality of the Sith.
