Konar Siosk-Baas, also known as Ksian Qui-Soran, was a young Human male stormtrooper born on the planet Tatooine. He served under General Mark DeMeer in the 3rd Imperial Battalion, colloquially known as the Dark Blade Legion.[1] When Warlord Vodo Bonias and his protégé Grayson Uebles deposed Charon as emperor, DeMeer and most of Konar's fellow legionnaires chose to mutiny. After DeMeer was executed by the Imperial Security Bureau, Konar defected from the Empire in disgust. Safely aboard his Y-Wing starfighter Galactic Eagle, he plotted a course through the Seswenna Sector to join the Jedi Praxium. While en-route, the Eidola Pirates waylaid his ship and murdered him circa Year 5 Day 185.

Konar was born as Ksian Qui-Soran on the desert planet of Tatooine. He grew up as the only child of Sylvia Qui-Soran and Vyystal Qui-Soran, a former Jedi Knight. His ambitious father Vyystal believed his son might have the potential to wield the Force and secretly instructed his son in lightsaber combat. However, as the Jedi Code forbade such teaching, Konar would have to find a Jedi Master to continue his training.

When Konar was a teenager, Vyystal persuaded his querulous son to leave their backwater world and to roam the pale stars. Thus Konar began his journeys to distant planets. While star-hopping, Konar became feverish one night aboard his starship. In his mind's eye, he saw soldiers slowly torturing his parents with vibro-knives. He returned to Tatooine as he felt he could not continue his travels.

Upon returning home, the young Konar discovered that his parents had been killed. A reported sighting of Rebel Alliance stragglers in the area led him to hastily conclude that his parents died in a guerrilla attack. Consumed by vengeance, the hot-headed Konar zoomed off-world in his Z-95 Headhunter for Obra Skaii and enlisted in the Galactic Empire. He trained in the Imperial Academy until he graduated with honors and was promoted to Corporal. Despite his youthfulness, Konar ascended the ranks to Sergeant First Class (E-7). Unusually short-tempered, he was quick to engage his fellow legionnaires in argument, especially Sergeant First Class Banquo Knox who was every bit as stubborn as he was.

On Year 4 Day 133, Emperor Charon was forced to abdicate the Imperial throne and chaos ensued. These unexpected events soon led to the death of Konar's commander and friend Mark DeMeer. Following Charon's overthrow by Warlord Vodo Bonias and Greyson Uebles, DeMeer became openly critical of the new Imperial High Command.[2] He reportedly conspired with Grand Vizier Corell Aintab to depose Emperor Uebles and Warlord Bonias. He was summarily executed by Uebles' Imperial Security Bureau circa Year 4 Day 250.[3][4]

The execution of his father-figure DeMeer by the Bonias-Uebles cabal significantly dimmed the Empire's reputation in Konar's eyes. For months, he was in a state of shock. He received orders to be transported to Alderaan and to board an Imperial starship designated Typhoon. He deliberately missed the scheduled flight and quietly defected in his Z-95 Headhunter. Using a bootlegged holonet transmitter, the young man contacted the gray-bearded masters of the Jedi Praxium and revealed that he was Force Sensitive. The Praxium accepted him into their hallowed ranks, but he would need to escape Imperial territory and make his way to their ancient citadel in the Outer Rim Territories.

Luckily, an amiable smuggler learned of Konar's predicament and offered to trade Konar's Z-95 Headhunter for a Y-Wing. As his Z-95 Headhunter was no more than a metal scrapheap torn apart by ion storms, Konar quickly accepted the bargain. A week later, the Y-Wing was delivered, and Konar promptly escaped. He was chased off-planet by a squadron of rampaging TIE Fighters.[3]
