Nadia Grell was a female Sarkhai who became a Jedi Padawan of the Barsen'thor during the Galactic War. She also replaced her father, after his death, as the Senator of Sarkha, until the outbreak of the war against Zakuul.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Nadia Grell was the daughter of Senator Tobas Grell of Sarkhai. Nadia had not spent much time off her home planet. She held an intense curiosity for all the species and experiences that she had never seen before and picked up an interest in diplomacy from assisting her father.
When the Barsen'thor was tasked with meeting and aiding the Rift Alliance on the Republic ship, the Fortitude, Sith ambushed the ship. They rigged it to crash and kill the leaders of the Rift Alliance and separate them from the Galactic Republic. Nadia had hidden and been trying to contact anyone she could. She was able to warn the arriving Barsen'thor, who saved the delegation by evacuating to the Jedi's ship, where they stayed for a time.
On Quesh, the Jedi Consular discovered that Nadia was unusually strong in the Force during an incident at Attis Station. Force-users were practically unheard of on her homeworld, rendering Nadia as a freak in the eyes of her people. Nadia's father took her along on his diplomatic missions away from Sarkhai hoping that he could find someone to help her control her abilities and help her meet similar people. But upon seeing Jedi, he noticed she was more powerful but uncontrolled in comparison to the masters he met.
After her father's death at the hands of "Stark", a mysterious Sith Lord whose name was taken by the First Son, Nadia was inducted into the Jedi Order as a Padawan under the guidance of the Barsen'thor in accordance with her father's will.
Nadia would inherit her father's position representing her home for the Republic and would have to leave training for these duties from time to time.
At a later point during the Galactic War, Nadia was reciting the Jedi Code with her Master when Lieutenant Felix Iresso interrupted, explaining that their ship's navicomputer had been sliced, it's destination plotted towards Rishi. Zenith chimed in that Rishi was a haven for pirates and gunrunners, so there was no way anyone from there could've done so. As the crew checked the navicomputer, Nadia's Master had a vision that compelled the Barsen'thor to announce that they were going to Rishi.
During the Eternal Empire's Conquest, The Barsen'thor went missing. For some time, Nadia consulted the Noetikons and decided to rally the Barsen'thor's old allies, including Gaden-Ko, the Esh-kha, and the Balmorran resistance to search for her master. During this time, she also was promoted to knight, and, at her request, replaced as senator by Theriki, so that she could better serve the war effort. At some point before the return of the Outlander she met Jedi Master Gnost-Dural and joined in his efforts to establish a hidden Jedi colony on Ossus.
Powers and abilities[edit | edit source]
- "Um. You know that stone I've been practicing my levitation on? I sort of… exploded it."
- ―Nadia Grell
Nadia Grell's Force powers were volatile and difficult for her to control prior to Jedi training, and even as a Padawan her power would occasionally surge beyond her grasp; she once destroyed a rock that she was levitating. She used a double-bladed lightsaber in battle, and used her explosive Force powers in combat as well.
