Appan Parsu, born on Alderaan, to the Parsu Nerf farming family. Who supplied one of the major fast food chains of the galaxy with their Nerf meat. Appan was brought to the attention of the Jedi Order aged 3 by his uncle Retro Ap'pon. Appan was to train on Coruscant as a youngling, by Master Fisto Mardu. Master Mardu's forte was the skill within the Force (A Master of both Light and Darksides, and thus tought). Seeing Appan's great potential and connection to the Force, he provide the young Padawan extra tuition. Until aged 13, he was hand picked by Master Jedi Ulic Kosa, to become Master Kosa's Padawan. Master Kosa was the Jedi Order's authority on lightsabre combat at the time, he was to teach Appan all form's, including what then was known as Juyo. Appan had a very unexciting career while been a Padawan, until he became a Jedi Knight.
During his first year as a Knight he became a archaeologies, due to his short stay as Watchman on Kashyyyk. He stayed with the wookiee family of Chai'luff, Appan came to enjoy their language known as Shyriiwook. Which are made up by a complex number of roars, barks and growls. To which few species can understand, and few still can mimic. Appan became great friends with the youngest member of the family Chai'luff. His full name Kollartin Chai'luff, and he helped Appan to master the complex language.
Appan was presented by the Family elder Nosscottaa Chi'luff, an antique bowcaster, it's energy array is encast within a carved wooded weapon. It was presented to him for his aiding the Wookiees against Ryder Mandwin a notorious smuggler of slaves. While this all went on, Appan became romantically involved with one former personnal slave of Ryder's, Jien Loutu. A young red Twi’lek woman, with unusually long lekku’s (head-tails). Shortly after this Jien became a part of his entourage, she herself had force potential, with the very basics at her command.
Three years later Appan travelled to the planet of Korriban in the Horuset System, to study the remains of the Valley of the Dark lords. He learned very little here but for the locations of certain ancient Sith lords.
