In 12,978 BBY, a being called Kara appeared to Elias, a moisture farmer in the deserts of Halm, and she told him about the Order of the Jedi Bendu. Kara explained that the Jedi Bendu were a sect of Force users who existed until they broke into the Jedi Order and the Bendu Order in 15,000 BBY—contradicting the traditional belief that the Jedi Order was formed circa 25,000 BBY.
Elias felt that she was an angel from God who spoke the will of the Force, and so he set out to bring the descendants of the Jedi Bendu together. He did not know for certain, however, who the descendants were, as Kara did not give him the ability to know for certainty, although he considered this a blessing. His journey led him to creating the Ophuchi Clan and settling on Tatooine.
Behind the scenesEdit
Kara was mentioned in the role-playing profile for Elias on TheStarWarsRP.Com. She was created by author Brandon Rhea specifically for Elias' backstory, as well as for being a catalyst in the formation of the Ophuchi Clan, an important group in the novel Star Wars: Episode I - The Chosen One.
