Son of Morgan and Patricia Katarn, farmers from Sulon, he was educated at the Imperial Academy on Carida when his mother was killed by a malfunctioning BT-16 perimeter security droid. He became a decorated member of the Imperial Special Operations, but his father, unknown to him, was a Rebel supporter. During the attack on his homeplanet of Sulon (officially a Rebel attack), he lost his father. Kyle began to hate the Rebel Alliance and supervised many Imperial operations against it. One such operation was the assault on AX-456, a Rebel comm center situated on an asteroid that beamed anti-Imperial propaganda to the citizens of the Barma sector and that linked up to similar facilities in the adjacent Haldeen and Kliap sectors.

In the computer game Star Wars: Dark Forces, Katarn began as a mercenary working for the Rebel Alliance under Mon Mothma. Kyle was secretly dispatched by Mothma on missions deemed too dangerous or sensitive for actual Alliance operatives, and was extremely well paid for his services.

Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II

Katarn with Jan Ors

The game Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II takes place one year after the events of the film, Return of the Jedi. It began with Kyle being visited by the spirit of the Jedi Rahn, who told him of the Jedi heritage of his father: Morgan Katarn had helped the Jedi Master close off the Valley of the Jedi: a resting place for deceased Jedi that have become one with the Force and a nexus for Force energy. Kyle traveled to his father's workshop, located on Sulon, a moon of Sullust, to find the family droid named WeeGee to decipher a message from his father. After his father's message was complete, the droid then ejected Rahn's lightsaber from an internal storage compartment, which Kyle took and practiced with momentarily before leaving to track down Rahn's killers. He embarked on a journey where he battled against the Dark Jedi faction, led by the Dark Jedi Jerec, who had murdered his father and Rahn. During his journey, he fought the other six Dark Jedi who followed Jerec. He defeated, but spared, Yun. He then fought and killed Gorc, Pic, and Maw, but, with each duel, Kyle brought himself closer to the dark side. His adventure took him to a secret Jedi burial ground, the Valley of the Jedi, where the spirits of many Jedi and Sith lay quiescent, trapped there after the Battle of Ruusan. This site was a nexus of power from which Force-sensitives could draw great energies of the Force. Jerec was attempting to gain this power for his own ends.

Kyle's ship, the Moldy Crow, was destroyed when Kyle attempted to escape the crash of Jerec's ship. Kyle escaped although the crash left him unconscious. One of the last Dark Jedi, Sariss, and her adopted son Yun, pulled the unconscious Jedi from the wreckage. Boc, another Dark Jedi, destroyed Katarn's lightsaber and left to assist Jerec. Sariss was about to kill Kyle, but Yun, impressed by Kyle sparing his life in the beginning, blocked her blow with his lightsaber. Sariss' blade was deflected and struck Yun, mortally wounding him. As Kyle woke up, he heard Yun saying Katarn shouldn't have died a coward's death and that he deserved a true battle. Yun breathed his last, possibly returning to the light side. With his lightsaber destroyed, Kyle picked up Yun's saber and defeated Sariss, being careful not to fall to the dark side in the process.

Kyle rushed to the Jedi Temple and confronted Boc, who wielded two lightsabers, but was no match for Kyle's dueling skills. After defeating Boc, Kyle rushed in to stop Jerec. The two dueled, and Kyle disarmed Jerec. The Dark Jedi tried and failed to turn Kyle to the dark side (again, if you choose the light path). Katarn tossed Jerec his lightsaber back. Picking up his weapon, Jerec lunged at Kyle, igniting his lightsaber. Kyle shifted aside but left his lightsaber blade in Jerec's path, severing his right shoulder and arm. The wound was fatal, and Jerec died. Kyle freed (according to prophecy) the souls of the Jedi, trapped millennia ago by Lord Kaan.

Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith

The computer game Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith takes place approximately five years after the events of Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II. The game describes how former Imperial assassin Mara Jade came under Kyle's tutelage, taking up the rare bond of reciprocal apprenticeship, a facet of the "Jedi Concordance of Fealty" little practiced since the "Cleansing of the Nine Houses". During this period, while investigating Sith ruins on the long dead world of Dromund Kaas, Kyle came under the influence of the dark side, but Jade went to him and convinced him to come back to the light. After nearly succumbing to the dark side herself, Mara helped him turn back. Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith is the expansion pack for the first person shooter Jedi Knight: Dark Forces II.

Skywalker made a second offer to Katarn, and this time he accepted, believing that further training would help him tame his dark self. Kyle gave up his former lightsaber and built his own blue saber. Kyle developed a friendship with fellow Jedi trainee Corran Horn, but when two students of the Academy fell to the dark side, Kyle's fear of the dark side multiplied. Kyle gave up studying the Force, gave his lightsaber to Luke Skywalker and returned to his mercenary ways as Jan Ors' partner. New Republic Intelligence reports of his missions suggest Kyle's tactics were particularly "bloodthirsty." He almost always deliberately made a complete search for targets. Of particular note was a mission on Tatooine on which only one Imperial survivor was left alive for interrogation. The Imperial was so shocked all he revealed was that his orders originated from a planet named Kejim. Corran Horn (b. ...

  • It is important to point out that most sources insist that Kyle disposed of Yun's saber and built his own saber with a blue blade after the events of Dark Forces II. However, this claim comes largely from George Lucas' insistence that all lightsabers are either green, blue, purple, or red. In reality, the saber that Kyle used in the gameplay sections of Mysteries of the Sith was a modified version of Yun's saber with an orange blade. This alteration of blade color was likely a result of an additional crystal added to the saber's emitter, possibly stolen from Jerec's saber after the conflict at the end of Dark Forces II. Many Star Wars enthusiasts strongly disagree with Mr. Lucas' decision to fundamentally alter what was previously believed to be solid and understood concepts directly relevant to issues of canon. Therefore, there is heated debate on either side of this issue.

However it is to be noted that sabers of the yellow variety are found in the Knights of the Old Republic games and their canonical status is solidified in the minds of fans, but apparently not yet to Lucas.

Jan Ors was taken prisoner by Desann and apparently killed by Tavion. Angered by his partner's death, Kyle returned to The Valley of the Jedi on Ruusan to restore his powers, but was warned by the Jedi Spirit of his late father of the corrupting power of The Valley. He also warned Kyle about the coming dangers. Kyle then stepped in The Valley's core beam to restore his Force Powers and once again trod dangerously close to the dark side. He returned to the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 to begin training again and to retrieve the lightsaber he had left with Luke Skywalker for safe-keeping, also learning Desann was a fallen student of Skywalker's. Luke and Kyle then set across the galaxy to bring Desann to justice. During his travels, he learned that Jan was still alive. She was eventually rescued, allowing Kyle to overcome his thirst for revenge. He learned as well that Desann had located the Valley of the Jedi by following Kyle and had begun to create an army of Dark Jedi "Reborn" warriors to rule the galaxy. These warriors, called Shadowtroopers, were artificially infused with the Force and were clad in Cortosis armor, an armor that is resistant to lightsabers.

In the game Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, Kyle is relegated to the role of supporting character. He becomes the Master of two students, Jaden Korr and Rosh Penin. Both students being talented, they quickly learn Kyle's wisdom. Kyle's quest in the game is to defeat the Sith cult known as the Disciples of Ragnos. Rosh eventually succumbs to the dark side and joins the Disciples of Ragnos. Kyle again meets Tavion, leader of the cult, who possessed a device known as the Staff of Ragnos, and plans to resurrect the ancient Sith Lord Marka Ragnos.

Kyle's other student, Jaden Korr, eventually becomes a Jedi, but depending on the player's choice, Jaden may either turn to the Dark Side by killing Rosh, or remain on the Light Side by forgiving him. In the latter choice, Kyle is proud of his student, who defeats Tavion. If Jaden goes to the dark side, Kyle later duels with his former pupil, who overpowers him using the Staff of Ragnos, stolen by defeating Tavion. Jaden escapes, apparently becoming a commander of the Imperial Remnant, and Kyle then questions whether or not he should be a Jedi, taking a leave of absence to apprehend Jaden.

New Jedi Order

In the New Jedi Order series of novels, Kyle became the academy's foremost battlemaster, a close friend of Luke Skywalker, and a respected Jedi Master. He educated many famous Jedi, such as Jaden Korr, and he managed to slay the former Emperor's Hand, Jeng Droga. During the Yuuzhan Vong invasion, in the New Jedi Order saga, Kyle helped develop strategies against the invaders, and participated in the rescue of human captives of the Imperial Remnant world Ord Sedra from the Yuuzhan Vong. Near the end of the war, the living planet Zonama Sekot agreed to help the Republic; Kyle was one of several Jedi Knights bonded to seed-partners and provided with Sekotan starships to use in Sekot's defence.

Kyle heard a rumor that the Sith Order still existed. Due to his experiences on Drommund Kaas, Kyle investigated after the invasion, following clues from Ord Sedra in the Clacis Sector to Yaga Minor, resulting in the Cloak of the Sith. During the mission, Kyle was captured by the Dark Jedi Daye Azur-Jamin, who presumably attempted to turn Kyle back to the dark side. After a successful rescue mission led by Jan Ors and Jaden Korr, Kyle revealed all that he knew about the new threat.

Kyle also speaks his mind during a Master's Council session, where he stands up to Chief of State Cal Omas. He, along with Corran Horn and other Masters believed that Jaina and Zekk could be the next leaders of the dark nest. During the Swarm War, Kyle led a squadron of Jedi Stealth X's against the Killiks.


Legacy of the Force

Kyle appears in the Legacy of the Force novels Bloodlines and Exile as a Jedi Master participating in Council meetings. In Bloodlines, he helps to point out the "embarrassment" to the Jedi Order of Jacen Solo's actions in apprehending Corellians on Coruscant. Additionally, he plays the part of a devil's advocate in Exile regarding Leia's supposed betrayal of the Galactic Alliance, though he reasserts his loyalty to Leia by being first to formally declare his faith in her at the meeting's end.

Talents

Despite being almost completely self-trained, Kyle became one of the New Jedi Order's most respected and powerful Jedi Masters. He began his career by single-handedly stealing the Death Star plans, defeating an army of the powerful Dark Troopers, Boba Fett (although he escaped), and General Mohc himself as a Dark Trooper. With relatively little lightsaber combat training, Kyle defeated seven trained Dark Jedi: Boc, Gorc, Pic, Maw, Sariss, Yun, and then Jerec himself - an amazing accomplishment for someone of his status of training. Kyle again showed great skill defeating Desann, a Dark Jedi with power that came close to matching that of Luke Skywalker. It is believed that his raw power was increased to rival that of Luke Skywalker's when Katarn visited the Valley of the Jedi after first encountering Desann. During the events of The Disciples of Ragnos, Kyle had already become the strongest swordsman in the New Jedi Order, and successfully trained one of the youngest and arguably most famous Jedi Knights during these events, Jaden Korr.
