Kari has always been a bit crazy.
She grew up on the edges of known space, among the rough ports and stations of the mining colonies of the outer rim. Her parents were part of a three ship exploritory scoop-mining operation manned by 12 people. For months at a time, the three ships would travel together beyond the charted systems, sucking up space dust and debris in search of rare and valuable minerals. They returned to civilization to sell their gleanings and the more valuable information of where they found what. After a month or two of repairs and leave in the nearest outposts, they'd resupply and head out in a different direction.
Kari's parents recognised that she had the potential to attend school and make a real career within the republic.
When she was old enough, her parents began to leave her alone at one of the colonies so she could go to school. Her grades were always excellent, but she never seemed to pay much attention to class and was repeatedly docked for skipping. She preferred illicit activities like climbing the town hall and speed bikes races in the the canyons , and was known to run with a rough crowd. She was involved in several incidents, but no reprimand, accusation, or punishment seemed to stick.
As soon as she could, she enrolled in an elite pilot's program on one of the more populated planets. She was a star pupil, but was nearly expelled more than once for the risks she took and the stunts she pulled.
Three years into the program her parents went on a mining run and never came back. The local authorities ruled their disappearance a "mining accident" and declared case closed. Kari refused to accept this ruling, but the authorities proved unwilling to do anything more. She left the school and bought a small, fast ship with her inheritance and went out on her own.
It didn't take long to determine that her parents had been murdered and robbed. She tracked the culprits and discovered a wide-spred pirating and smuggling ring… or rather she was discovered by them. She managed to talk them into accepting her and went to work as a scout. It was obvious that they'd bribed the local authorities into complacency, but she managed to betray them to a jedi who found authorities willing to take action against the pirates.
After the ring was destroyed, Kari began working as a free-lance scout. She did moderately well, but quickly discovered that on the fringes of known space it was not profitable to have a conscience. She tried to look the other way when she could, but found herself turning down more lucrative jobs in favor of working for scientists and explorers, whom she could generally trust to not put her morals on the line.
When she discovered herself working for an employer running a child slavery ring, she realized she couldn't just continue with her assignment, and she couldn't just leave. Instead, she took her employers on. Luckily two jedi had also been investigating the ring and when she turned coat they were in a position to support her. Together, they managed to expose the ring, rescue most of the children and arrest many of those responsible.
Kari was surprised to be told that the jedi who'd helped her with the pirates had reported her as a possible candidate for Jedi training, but she'd disappeared before they could contact her. The two jedi she'd helped break up the child slavery ring convinced her to go with them for training in the force, and she found herself back in school once again, this time to bring her instinctive use of the force into conscious control and eventually to become one of the legendary Jedi Knights. After two years of training, she still had to choke back a laugh whenever anyone says she's destined to become a Jedi Knight.
After 3, she's starting to take things a bit more seriously.
