Day 469 – Kira Carsen

Kira Carsen

Kira Carsen escaped the Sith Academy and later became a Jedi Knight in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

Kira’s parents were forced to give her to the Sith Academy on Korriban after they discovered she was Force-sensitive. She escaped the Sith after she realized that the Emperor was possessing her mind and body (children who were similarly possessed were called the children of the Sith Empire).

After crossing paths with Jedi Master Bela Kiwiks some time later, Kira trained to become a Jedi Knight, in part to protect herself from the Sith.

Laura Bailey voiced Kira Carson in Star Wars: The Old Republic and the digital expansions Rise of the Hutt Cartel, Galactic Starfighter, Galactic Strongholds, Shadow of Revan, Knights of the Fallen Empire, and Onslaught.
