Jerec lived in a small colony of Miralukans, hidden far away from the Empire, in an attempt to revive a small group of Jedi. Unfortunately for the colony, most of the old teachings were lost in the great purge, and the training they gave to those gifted in the Force were rudimentary and crude. During his training, Jerec excelled at using the Force, reveling in both the power rush he got with its use, as well as the satisfaction he received from mastering a skill. However, all was not well. During a lightsaber training session, his friend Klyndara was wounded by his best friend Lucien, resulting in the loss of Klyndara’s hand. In a rage, Jerec called upon the Force and slammed Lucien into a wall, paralyzing his friend. Not wishing to hurt those he cared about, nor confident in the training he had received, Jerec fled, stowing away upon a ship and eventually finding his way to Nar Shadaa.
