Kyp was born on the Deyer colony of the Anoat System. In an Imperial roundup of dissidents, he and his family were enslaved and sent to the Kessel spice mines. When the Empire collapsed after the Battle of Endor, Moruth Doole took control, and Kyp's parents were among the many executed in his purges. Around this time, Kyp encountered Vima-Da-Boda, who recognized his considerable Force talents and taught him some rudimentary skills. Eight years later, Han Solo and Chewbacca were taken prisoner and also forced to work in the mines, where they too befriended Kyp. With his help, they all managed to escape. In their flight, Kyp piloted them through The Maw, a cluster of black holes, and to a top secret military program under Admiral Daala. It is here that Kyp first found the Sun Crusher and used it to escape. Upon their return, Kyp found a place as one of the first students of Luke Skywalker's newly-begun Jedi Academy.

He became dissatisfied with the slow pace of Luke's teachings, however, remembering the taste of the dark side he had had during his escape from Kessel, and came under the influence of the Sith Lord Exar Kun. With Kun's help, Kyp recaptured the Sun Crusher and pursued a destructive course. His first task was to violate the mind of Qwi Xux, the genius who had developed the Sun Crusher, and wipe all memories of her weapons development work. Upon his return, he teamed up with Kun, attacking Luke, cleaving his spirit from his body. He then was ordered to destroy Carida's sun, annihilating the Imperial base located there. After he fired his weapon, he discovered that his own brother was still alive and among the ranks of stormtroopers at the Imperial Academy there. Kyp was unable to save him in time, and fell farther into the clutches of the dark side because of it. While many derided him as a mass murderer, others claimed that Kyp shortened the war and that Carida's graduates would have eventually killed more people than those who perished in the supernova.

As Kun was destroyed, Kyp returned to the light and went to the Maw to destroy the Sun Crusher. However, on arrival, he discovered the Death Star Prototype, which he then managed to destroy by luring it into a black hole along with the Sun Crusher, only narrowly escaping by squeezing himself into a message pod thought too small for any human to inhabit. As a result of this, Durron suffered multiple broken ribs, limbs and other heavily damaged bones.

He quickly grew strong in the Force and took on Miko Reglia as his Jedi apprentice. Kyp and Reglia formed the Dozen Avengers – later Dozen and Two Avengers – a vigilante group of X-wing pilots.

Although he favors more aggressive tactics than many of the other Jedi, he proves himself a valuable asset in the deadly conflict, as well as continuing to be a divisive figure. He briefly took on Jaina Solo as an apprentice and there were hints of a budding relationship between them, but she lost much respect for him when he tricked her into destroying a Yuuzhan Vong worldship that he claimed was a superweapon. —Luke Skywalker Jaina Solo II (b. ... The Koros-strohna worldships were a large transport used by the extragalactic Yuuzhan Vong from the Star Wars New Jedi Order series. ...

When Jaina fell to the dark side, Kyp stepped in and helped guide her back to the light and again took her on as an apprentice until she was knighted, and they developed a close friendship. In helping Jaina fight the dark side, Kyp also became much more stable, finally admitting that many of his methods were wrong. Since this reformation, Kyp has become more widely accepted in the Jedi Order. The Jedi are a fictional monastic peacekeeping organization from the Star Wars saga. ...

Though Kyp disagreed with many of Luke's policies, he was appointed to the reformed Jedi Council. Kyp eventually learned to work out his differences with Luke and other Jedi, even though their views on certain subjects may differ. As Luke changed his own opinion on the ways of the Force, Kyp provided blowback to the ideas and successfully kept Luke's ideas within the realm of the traditional Jedi Lore. Kyp acknowledged Luke's authourity and Luke agreed to listen to Kyp more, admitting in the first Jedi Council meeting (ironically when Kyp openly acknowledged being wrong) that Kyp did have a point about him being too cautious. The Jedi Council is a fictional institution from the Star Wars series of films. ...

The Dark Nest crisis once again caused tension between Kyp and other Jedi. Chief of State Cal Omas felt that the Jedi were not handling the crisis properly; he took steps to control them and let the military handle the situation. Kyp was angered by this and stated that the Jedi should not have to answer to politicians. His main ideological opponents were Kenth Hamner and Corran Horn; Kyp and Horn almost came to blows over this disagreement, and Kyp stole several ships to openly defy the unjust remnants of the Jedi Council (Luke was elsewhere at the time). Cal Omas was a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. ... Kenth Hamner was a Jedi Master in the New Jedi Order. ... Corran Horn (b. ...

As a Jedi Master, Kyp is an extremely powerful figure in the Order, almost rivalling Luke Skywalker in Force powers and Lightsaber skills. However, many Jedi openly criticise him for being brash and hasty in combat. He favours more aggressive tactics than most Jedi but has still managed to earn a lot of respect and his own following within the New Jedi Order. Ocasionally skirting close to the dark side in his philosophies he has managed to keep himself under control ever since his first falling.

In the New Jedi Order, Kyp proves himself to be a formidable warrior- with his raw Force power- his ability to tap into the force to accomplish tasks requiring great Force energy if not skill, rivalled by only Luke Skywalker. Unlike Luke though, who is looked upon for not only his skills as a warrior, but for leadership and wisdom, Kyp is regarded mainly as a warrior. He and Jaina Solo remain highly focused on one objective during the war with the Vong- namely, the utter destruction of their opponent, albeit without falling prey to the Dark Side.
