Octavia was born on Malastare and was trained against her mother's wishes to know about the force and her own possible abilities. Father left when she was eight years old and was gone for two years. At the age of 8 Octavia learned her father was dead via her mother. Me'a Syn took Octavia to Myrkyr, and raised her there for two years, before she left Octavia alone. Me'a Syn couldn't take seeing the force starting to develop in Octavia and didn't want to go through any more trouble, had enough with Wai-Cha, deserted Octavia at the age of 10.
In the two years Octavia was with her mother, Me'a constantly reminded her that the force was a bunch of myth and trickery. Me'a made sure Octavia was kept in the areas where the force was unable to be used or sensed. Octavia came to believe her mother after a while and felt somewhat betrayed by her father and his teaching.
Octavia did miscellaneous jobs and stayed out of trouble for three years; until she made a mistake in diagnosing a ships engine problem and was set to be sold as a slave. Right before she ended up in slavery was rescued by S'Lara and introduced to Rocasy and became his engineer. Never paid too much attention to all the hoopla between the Empire and the New Republic.
She practiced with her grandfather's lightsaber and used it as her main weapon when she has to, likes cloaks and watching people from a distance. She doesn't remember everything her father taught her, and when she does things through the force she is taken by surprise.
Octavia doesn't trust people easily because of being left by her mother, and somehow believes it's because of her father that her mother left.
Octavia has just recently discovered that her grandfather was Qui-Gon Jinn the Jedi Master a Jedi student named Rachel told her this. Finding this hard to believe Octavia did a lot of thinking before she left the Electria and decided to find out what direction her life should take. She is concerned by the dreams she still has and from what Rachel has told her its because of her saber --- it is the only connection to her father and her grandfather.
While on Port Lansing discovered Victoria Syn when she tried to pick-pocket her. Victoria then told her that she had been watching her and that she is her niece. Octavia took the girl in, though there is an unsteady trust between the two. Octavia doesn't fully believe her, but will not turn her out in the cold.
Octavia then grew in the force and its knowledge when on her way to Yavin; the transport she was on with Jerella and Luke Skywalker was high-jacked and they were forced to take part in the gladiatorial games. Where she was forced to kill her opponent.
After they were rescued by the Alliance, Octavia began her training with Luke Skywalker (Season Irwin on line) in the course of the training memories of her earlier training with her father are coming forward which make her new duties easy in some areas.
Has recently made friends with Alida D'med the Jedi master from the past, and has found that a fellow Jedi student named Medenna LaRose has endeared herself to her.
Octavia has made some powerful enemies in her short time with the Jedi. The newest one is one Xanatos DuCruet, recently resurrected from the dead by his descendant Mira Lexor.
Has seemed to make an uneasy peace with her niece Victoria Alderson.
Captured on Telos and turned over to Vader and taken to the Empire, stayed there until she was given to Xanatos Du'Cruet as a wedding gift. After spending time with him and watching she has requested to stay on as his aide. With the promise of when the time was right he would return her to the Jedi so she could complete her studies. She agreed and continues her studies there on Telos.
Upon seeing the Jedi Council for the last time asked for citizenship from Xanatos Du'Cruet.
On her way back to Arridor after Darana attacked Arridor because of the possible presence of the Jedi. Her ship was attacked and she was taken captive. She was tortured by Sprite and Diamond. And Sprite cut off her wedding ring finger and shipped it back to Telos with a ransom demand for her safe return.
Rescued by Tara's family Octavia was returned to Telos, and stayed there recovering while still undergoing training from Xanatos.
Is now married to Tor Krysk and lives on Arridor as a Telosian representative answerable to Governor Zelek of Arridor.
