Born on Corellia, Corran joined the Corellian Security Force (Corsec) like his father and his grandfather before him. He worked for many happy years as his Fathers partner and became the scourge of lowlifes on Corellia. However during an operation his father was ‘accidentally’ shot and killed by the bounty hunter Bossk. Corran held his father as he died and then went after the bounty hunter. Corran caught him however instead of killing him like many others would have, he arrested him. He was determined to remain true to the ideals that his father had lived by. However The imperials forced him to release him in the end because at the time Bossk had been under an Imperial contract.
A few years later Corran was run out of Corsec by the imperial liaison that created charges of murder against him and others. Eventually he found himself in the Rebel Alliance. During his time at Corsec he had trained as fighter pilot and had quickly become an ace, he was renowned for his space pursuit of pirates. Because of this he signed up for Rouge Squadron and was accepted. In the years he spent with Rouge Squadron he helped to hamper the Empire, destroy outposts, and rid the universe of a Warlord or two. Rouge squadron were then placed into Imperial Centre and brought down the shield generators that protected it, which allowed the Rebel fleet to take Coruscant. However during flying a mission through an incredible lightning storm to destroy the last Imperial power generator he was captured, after succeeded in his mission.
He was brought to the infamous Yusankya, by Ysanne Isard. Eventually he escaped, and over the course of several years he freed the other prisoners and helped to kill Isard. He Married Mirax Terrik, a smuggler, however he refused to settle down and carried on flying his missions for Rouge Squadron. A completely unexpected event lead to the realisation that he was descended from the Jedi. His Grandfather had adopted his friend’s, a Jedi, child during the destruction of the Jedi. He kept the child as his own bringing him up to join Corsec to protect his identity. Corran accept this but refused Luke Skywalker’s offer to join his academy, because he was needed by Rouge Squadron. He carried on for a few years slowly realising talents through the force he had.
However his wife was later kidnapped and to find and rescue her he needed to become even better than he was before. He joined Luke at the academy with his first few students. The first things he learnt was his limits, his telekinesis is practically non-existent. However he has two incredibly strong talents. The first is an advanced ability to fool others, even other Jedi into seeing what he wants them to. The second is one of the most elusive talents a Jedi have, only a few have ever mastered it.
Corran has the ability to absorb energy. If jabbed with a Force Pike, Shot by a Blaster, or even hit with a force blast, as long as he concentrates, he can absorb the energy from attack. This doesn’t mean that he’s invulnerable and can just walk through a hail of blaster fire. He has to concentrate on each attack so it is possible overwhelm him. Also because if he absorbs enough energy then he be killed so to stop this releases this energy as fast possible trough the force. Although he has little telekinetic abilities, with a massive boost from blaster bolt he is capable of throwing attackers through the air.
Because of his lack of Telekinetic and Telepathic abilities he has to focus on getting by with his precognition and mind bending abilities to keep himself alive. He is also an advanced Lightsabre user, but he continues to keep a Blaster with him. And from his time with Corsec has made him very distrusting at times, because of this he always tries to keep a Vibroblade concealed on his person. His best friend in the world is easily his droid, Whistler. Whistler was his fathers and he inherited him when he died, it is the only real link to his father he has left yet. Also being an R2 unit he helps Corran in his X-Wing. Whistler, and his X-Wing, has always been painted green, the colour scheme of Corsec.
Corran has no ambition to leave his current life. After rescuing his wife he returned to the Rouges and is very happy. Despite of his experience over the last 30 years he has never wanted or needed to progress to a further rank. Despite there are Jedi Masters old enough to be his children he has remained a Jedi Knight. Talking of children Corran has two including his son, Valin, who is already started training at a young age. Despite being twice the age of the average fighter pilot he stayed with the rouges right up until the end of the galactic civil War. He then Retired to Corellia, to start a family, still keeping in contact with his old friends but enjoying the calm of his life.
Then the Yuuzhan Vong appeared on the horizon.
