"And of course, the Sword of the Jedi himself, Ryv Karis. You're not gonna find anyone more dedicated and reliable than him. You're just not. He might not be any Grandmaster, but he might as well be running the whole New Jedi Order himself, I swear."

- Maynard Treicolt, Jedi Knight​

Ryv Karis is an active Jedi Knight of the New Jedi Order, based upon Coruscant. His service to the Light has seen him contest great evils such as the Sith Empire and Bryn'adul. While his training initially began within the Galactic Republic, he abandoned it to pursue a less than legal lifestyle within the Outer Rim for several years. Imperator Cedric Grayson eventually found him midway through an overdose. Taking pity on the young Kiffar, Cedric took him back to Coruscant and aided in his mental and spiritual healing, soon taking him as an apprentice. Ryv trained beneath both Cedric Grayson and Wyatt Morga, two of the greatest living Jedi Battlemaster's of the age. With time, Ryv Karis was knighted beside the late Lanik Dawnstar, by Master Morga, shortly before taking up the mantle Sword of the Jedi. With Wyatt Morga's disappearance following the battle of Honoghr, Ryv broke away from the Jedi Order, opting to begin a new order within Galactic Alliance space. His leadership saw a number of Jedi follow him to the newly formed New Jedi Order.

History
____________________________________________________________________

Early Life

Ryv Karis was born to Jedi Master Vyrin Karis and mother Amaraya Karis on Coruscant. His earliest years saw him prepared to begin training beneath his father as a Jedi Padawan, most of his childhood utilized for studying the Force, history, and the tenets of Jedi Knighthood. Given his accelerated training maintained by his father, Ryv was declared a Padawan at the age of twelve. By this time, the One Sith's dark reach already pierced the Core worlds, slowly but surely tightening like a noose around the dying Republic and Alliance. He trained as a Padawan for a year beneath his father before the One Sith conquered Coruscant, laying waste to much of the planet and its Jedi protectors. Rather than give in to the might of the Sith, Vyrin Karis continued the fight, eventually seeing execution for his defiance.

Vyrin's death had a profound effect on his son, resulting in Ryv's departure from Coruscant to the Outer Rim. Seeing himself to Nar Shaddaa, the young Kiffar wound up working as an enforcer for Agrippa the Hutt and Jugga the Crusher, two influential crime lords on the notorious moon. For the first few years, Ryv loved every minute of it. The adrenaline rush of a chase, the spice induced highs from one of the Hutt's numerous dens, and the sense of brotherhood he found among the other youths all came together to present a sense of belonging. This didn't last long, unfortunately. The drugs eventually dulled, the highs running much shorter than he'd of preferred. The naivety of his upbringing faded away as Ryv soon realized the people he brought back to either Jugga or Agrippa rarely saw another sunrise. On one such occasion, Ryv witnessed a brutal execution at the hands of the former gladiator, Jugga the Crusher. A spice runner turned over a large enough shipment to see the Hutt's fortune take a considerable hit. In turn, Jugga tore the man limb from limb, beating him to death in merciless fashion.

Unable to push past such a horrifying sight, it hung heavy on Ryv for months, leading to a series of damning mistakes in the eyes of the boss, Agrippa. While out on a spice run, Ryv failed to properly secure a shipment of the drug, resulting in thousands of credits worth of spice being lost to a hyperspace jump. With nowhere to go and no way to fix it, the young Kiffar fled to his home and attempted to take his own life via an overdose. Caught in the most intense and overwhelming highs of his life, Ryv broke down as the truth of it all crashed over him. In a state of panic, he reached out, his consciousness expanding beyond natural boundaries to unconsciously meld with Jedi Master Cedric Grayson's. Curious about the strange and entirely unknown figure's touch, the Imperator sought out Ryv, soon finding him on the precipice of death. In an act of mercy, Cedric spared Ryv's life and took him back to Coruscant, unknowingly saving him from the danger of the Kiffar's former employers.
