Dejo Khan was a Force-sensitive human from the planet Mandalore. Raised by loving parents, he and his best friend Marko Eind were avid fans of Limmie, a popular sport on his world. During the Invasion of Mandalore, he was saved from being killed by Sylvar, a Jedi Knight. Dejo proceeded to save her life from the same Iridonian that tried to kill him. These events compelled the young boy to train as a Jedi. With the threat of losing everything in the invasion, Dejo and his mother Myn Khan left Mandalore with Sylvar to go to Dantooine.
