"My father taught me that the light would always triumph... I pray his lessons weren't wrong."
Kada stands in stark contrast to your average Jedi. Unlike many of her fellows who tend to dress plainly, or appear to be more mundane... Kada stands out very much among a crowd. Standing at only 5'7, she's not the tallest of individuals. Yet her body is clearly toned from her training, and her rather pleasant facial features make the Jedi easy on the eyes. Coupled with her outright refusal to dress in the more plain ways of the Jedi, often wearing tighter clothes that she finds to make herself look a bit cuter, Kada often draws the attention of those around her. Additionally, she wears a rather ornate Akul-Tooth Headdress as a marking that she had slain an Akul by herself and as a gift from her late father. Kada also tends to draw attention in how she manipulates her lekku, often using them to accentuate whatever she might be doing.
Once again the anthesis of your average Jedi, Kada tends to be a rather outgoing and outspoken individual. With a friendly smile marking her features more often than not, the young Jedi seemingly has no fear of approaching others to strike up a conversation. Nor does she have an issue displaying her emotions for others to see. Kada lives in the moment, not particularly being fond of keeping things hidden unless necessary. Why keep secrets when every moment is new, and there is still so much else to discover in the galaxy!
Kada has a friendly demeanor and can be a bit of a talker once she decides she likes another. Which, unfortunately, means that its fairly easy for her to try befriending another who may not particularly want that sort of bond. The Jedi is an optimist, often trying to see the brighter side of any situation wherever she can, as she is well aware of just how much worse situations could be at any given moment. Towards others, she can come off as a bit aloof and carefree. To only add to her stark contrast to her fellow Jedi, Kada has also known to be a bit of a flirtatious individual. Despite all these actions seeming to be aloof, many are shocked to find out just how intelligent Kada is, along with how much attention she is truly paying to any situation.
However; that is not to say that she is without flaws. Kada often finds herself of falling into a bit of being a bit too trusting of others. Wanting to see the best in them, and later paying a price for that error. When hurt like this, Kada's first instincts often flip back to those she was developed through the war and under Imperial Servitude; aggression. She will often lash out either with words or physically in response, before starting to slowly wind herself back from such actions that would bring her closer to the Dark Side. This, along with flaring responses from situations reminiscent of traumas she's suffered before can cause Kada to act very rashly at times, and very often to the detriment of herself.
Kada's lightsaber is truly unique. Technically, the weapon is a saberstaff with two blue blades, connected through the middle with a simple silver hilt adorned with golden lines to mark connections between metal casings as well as the ignition triggers. While there are two triggers on the weapon, only the one closer to her right hand will control it while in saberstaff form. When Kada twists both ends of the saber staff in opposite directions, it breaks apart into two individual lightsabers. The entire weapon was built by the Togruta, and is nearly defined as a work of art for its seamless finish and elegance.
- Blaster Skill: Kada is a rather decent shot with her DL-12 Heavy Blaster Pistol
- Tech Knowledge: Kada is rather adept at tinkering with tech. Specifically; Droids and Ships. She can build a droid from nothing but parts and can repair ships rather effectively.
- Piloting: Kada once flew an X-Wing as part of the Rebellion forces at Jakku, she is a skilled fighter pilot.
- Jar'Kai: Kada is an amatuer at Jar'Kai, but uses Form IV: Ataru Influences. This is because Jar'Kai itself is not a form, but a blanket term for two Sabers.
- Form III Soresu: Kada is an amateur at Soresu, and only employs this form when we weapon is in Saberstaff form.
- Dancing: Kada is an incredible dancer!
- Charisma/Negotiation: Due to her rather easygoing persona, Kada is quite adept at negotiating or calming others in tense situations. She is a pretty decent flirt, but that is less useful than one might think.

Kada was born on Shili to a loving pair of parents and spent a good portion of her young life on the planet. Though she was much too young to know, her parents had suffered greatly under Imperial Occupation of the planet. Local forces harassed their village, and later in Kada's young life arrested her mother under charges of 'Treason'. This rapid change came shortly after Kada had slain her first Akul, and had her headdress crafted by her father. With her mother suddenly taken away and the Imperial forces watching her father for any sign of treason, Kada quickly learned what the galaxy was truly like. Her illusions from her childhood had been shattered, and the youth started living in fear of those monsters in white armor. This fear, in turn, drove Kada to act. The youth was one day caught throwing stones at a local Storm Trooper patrol, who in turn attempted to arrest the young Togruta. However; her father stepped in to stop his daughter's arrest by physically shoving the troopers back. This situation spiraled, and soon a single cry rang out through the village, followed by a terrified shriek of a child. Her father had fallen flat on his back, chest burning where the trooper had shot him. In his dying breaths, he looked at his daughter and whispered softly to her. A reminder that she was his little light and that the light would always triumph against the dark.
Kada swiftly was smuggled off-planet by her fellow villagers, who knew full well what the incident would mean for their village. That the Imperials would return in force to ensure such a situation did not repeat itself. A fate they did not wish their village's youngest member to have to witness. Kada was entrusted to a lethan twi'lek man by the name of Anoon Gida, a leader of the local cell of the Rebellion. Anoon took the young Togruta off-world and into his own home, where she was met by his own daughter; Talik Gida. The two bonded quickly, with Talik having lost her own mother to Imperials and fully understanding the pain Kada was going through. Over the next few years, both girls became inseparable. Even growing to the point as viewing each other as siblings as they entered their teenage years. No matter where the Rebellion meant Anoon had to go, both Kada and Talik stood by each other's side to support one another through these troubling times. The two even played a part in certain Rebel operations, serving to help refuel, rearm, and repair fighters in between missions. It was during this time that Kada learned how to fly while Rogue Squadron was briefly operating out of the base she and Talik lived in. The pilot who took time to teach the young Togruta on the simulators was one Tycho Celchu, one of the many skilled pilots amongst the Rogues.
When Kada turned 15, her whole life went for another sudden turn. Talik, being 18 at the time, enlisted with the Rebellion. Kada watched with a worry held deep in her heart as her older sister was sent off to war against the Empire. Serving as one of the Rebellion's own shock troops, and standing firmly on the front lines with the overlords of the Galaxy. Kada spent the time alone training further on the simulators until she turned 16 and was picked up by the Rebellion as a potential pilot for the X-Wings. A year later, Kada would get her first experience of true battle flying escort and close-air support for Rebel ground troops during the battle of Jakku. Here, she managed to take down two Imperial Fighters, one of them being the more deadly Interceptor Class. Despite the viciousness of the fight, Kada and Talik managed to survive the battle. Shortly after which, the Republic and Empire settled upon peace and the New Republic was formed. At this time, Kada and Talik both stepped back from military service, intent on carving their own paths in the galaxy from that point on.
A chance they were not given. Both girls were quickly taken prisoner when the transport they were riding was raided by an Imperial Moff who had gone rogue and fancied himself something of a warlord. The two found themselves in chains, back under the thumb of the very entity they'd just risked life and limb to beat back. The next three years were grueling, filled with labor camps and mistreatment at the hands of the Imperials. Yet even this change in their life seemed not meant to last. During one of their transfers to a new camp, a Mandalorian swooped in and dealt a rather vicious blow to the Imperials. In the process the man, going by the name Toryn, chose to change certain parameters of his mission and escorted the two prisoners out of the Imperial Grip.
A few months later, the two had managed to find their own place in one of the seedier sides of Chandrila. Living in a small apartment, the two took up jobs at the local Nightclub to pay the bills while they figured out their next steps. Talik as a bartender, and Kada working as a dancer at club. It wasn't their dream, per say, but the job was honest and they were treated well. Certainly, it was better than life under Imperial Rule. The two would stay in this spot for two years before a shocking night would once more alter their fates. A rather unusual patron entered their club, a man almost everybody in the club recognized on sight from the Holonews. Luke Skywalker. Moreso, when the man, somewhat awkwardly, made his way across the floor and asked to specifically talk to both Kada and Talik... they knew things were about to change. After a little bit of Kada fangirling over the Jedi Master, and a bit of awkwardness on his end from their environment and state of dress, Luke finally put forward why he had approached the two. Both were sensitive to the force, and he wanted them to come to train at his Jedi Temple to become members of a new era of the Jedi Order.
Of course, Kada and Talik happily agreed!
