Tha’ci was a female Human Jedi Shadow and Traveller who lived both during the New Sith Wars and the early rise of the Galactic Empire. During the time of the New Sith Wars, she led a group of outcast Jedi Shadows who fought the Sith and other Dark Side users. During a battle against Sith Lord Darth Bane on Dantooine, she was killed along with several of her fellow Shadows. She managed to place her spirit within a crystal, however. This kept her hidden and safe from Bane, but also trapped inside the crystal. Nearly a thousand years later, the fugitive Jedi Knight Vhiran Ashukahwa found the crystal and released Tha’ci from it. Following this, Tha’ci joined Ashukahwa on his journeys and his attempts to fight the recently risen Galactic Empire.
Power and abilities
Born Force sensitive, Tha’ci was trained as a Jedi from very early on. During her training she would dedicate herself to becoming a Jedi Shadow and hunting the followers of the Dark Side. As a Shadow she would develop one of her most striking techniques: using the Force, Tha’ci could conjure flames that forced out the soul of a defeated opponent and then lock it within a specially carved crystal.
In addition, Tha’ci was a Traveler, a person capable of detaching their soul from their body at will and have it enter other bodies. She was also capable of entering inanimate objects in this manner, but could not leave it without a living being directly touching the object. Because of this ability, she was considered to be virtually immortal.
Finally, Tha’ci was an incredibly powerful fighter. Combining her speed and agility with the Force, she would swiftly move around the battlefield, evading, confusing and wearing out her opponent. Upon finding an opening, she would deliver quick and fierce strikes and move out of her opponent’s reach again before they would have a chance to react. Her weapon of choice was the lightknife, of which she carried a pair to complemented her fighting style, although she was also very proficient in unarmed combat.
