He and his wife, another Jedi, lived on Kashyyyk for more than ten years during which they had a son, Galen. Kento's wife was, at some point in time, killed by Trandoshan slavers while protecting the local Wookiees.[source?]
Kento fought Darth Vader in a battle of lightsabers and Force powers. While using the Force to choke Kento, Vader's lightsaber was taken away from him by Kento's son. Sensing the boy's potential, Vader casually crushed Kento's throat, before killing a group of Imperial soldiers who had seen the boy. Thus, Galen became Vader's secret apprentice and was given the code name Starkiller.
