A Twi'lek female, Bahlea was one of many pilgrims who followed Matriarch Kolovish to the planet Tython in the aftermath of the Great Galactic War and the enslavement of Ryloth by the Hutt Cartels. Assisting in the establishment of Kalikori Village, Bahlea married and bore a child named Rusa. Along with her husband, Bahlea raised their child until she fell ill with a feverish sickness. Setting out to retrieve a medicine derived from manka cat teeth, Bahlea's husband was killed by Flesh Raiders during his search. Later, her husband's final mission was completed by a young Jedi Padawan from the nearby Jedi Temple who brought Bahlea and Rusa the necessary teeth.
