Born on Corellia, Jade was a capricious child. At the age of twenty, she was approached by an Imperial agent who revealed to her that she had mystical powers, which she would hearafter use in service to the Empire.
Her parents remembered the Jedi, and indeed had witnessed the Purge; they convinced their daughter to flee and go into hiding. Vestige abandoned her acting studies at the Coronet City University, and fled to Nar Shaddaa. There she took advantage of her abortive acting career and her nascent mystic powers to sell prophecies. Enough of her wares were accurate to ensure her continued business, but this didn’t last long. One of her prophecies resulted in considerable loss to a powerful Hutt.
Now hunted on Nar Shaddaa, she followed her visions to a place of safety- a secret Rebel base. After hearing her story they realized that she was Force-sensitive and offered her a place in the Rebellion. Grateful for allies, she accepted. When reports arrived from Ryloth about a young fire-brand politician, Vestige (as she was now called) took the assignment to discover whether this Twi’lek might in some way aid the Rebellion.
