Sentenced to the Kessel prison complex, young Kyp Durron grew up with no love for the Empire after his brother was conscripted into service as a Stormtrooper. His promising Force powers were lightly trained by another prisoner, Vima-Da-Boda, but it wasn't until a daring escape with Han Solo that Kyp was introduced to formal Jedi training. He began to study at Luke Skywalker's newly formed Jedi Academy on Yavin 4.
Kyp was a talented and strong student of the force but very arrogant. The spirit of ancient Sith Lord Exar Kun began to exploit this arrogance and turn him to the Dark Side. Kyp turned on Luke, disabling him and then fled the planet. He stole a new Imperial super weapon called the "Sun Crusher." The Sun Crusher was a start ship that fired missiles that could cause a star to go Supernova. He used the stolen weapon to destroy the tar system of the planet Carida. He chose Carida because it was the location of the Imperial Military Academy his brother was taken to.
Eventually Master Skywalker and Han Solo were able to bring him back to the Light Side of the Force and Kyp willingly volunteered himself to stand trial for what he did. The New Republic left the final decision to Luke and he allowed Kyp to resume his Jedi training.
Kyp would become a full Jedi Knight and eventually a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council by the time of the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. He was an outspoken member of the council and still maintained a lot of the arrogance he displayed as a youth but was a respected member of the Jedi Order.
