Ky'Lek, born on Vjun, was quickly taken off of the hazardous planet in order to find a safer planet. Upon arrival of Naboo, Ky'Lek was discovered by his parents to be force sensitive. Although he was required to go to the Academy, his parents refused, which ended up in Ky'Lek starting late. At the age of 11, Ky'Lek was taken to the Jedi Academy to begin his training.
He found his Master at 13, a man named Jorhun Isam. He was harsh, strict, and abusive. At 100 successful Force pushes a day, Ky'Lek fell into a coma on his third day of training. The coma lasted one year and two months. Upon waking up, the doctors in the room lifted up off the ground, and crashed into the wall. Apparently, his coma had kept Force energy stored up, and when awaking, it was released. The entire hospital began to shake, and collapsed not two minutes after Ky'Lek woke up. This incident killed Jorhun Isam, who was entering the hospital to see Ky'Lek upon word that he had awaken. Ky'Lek was required to find a new Master, however no Master wanted to teach him. The other students ridiculed him with. 'Freak!' and, 'Insane'. One day, however, a man named Leo Maun, a Jedi Knight, accepted Ky'Lek as his apprentice. He controlled his powers; he taught Ky'Lek how to bottle up the mass of energy inside, and channel it, to control his Force powers.
