Family:

History: Calista's home world was the aquatic Bestine, a world covered in water but for the few islands that dotted the surface. On those islands, Calista's parents, like the other numerous residents, struggled to turn the rocky island spires into an island paradise. Her parents, unlike most of the residents who worked in the shipyard industry, owned a farm, trying to cultivate the meager land near the shore, the only land which supported any kind of growth. Calista's early life was rife with memories of the farm, with its three fields of plants that were joyous to run through, and of the water. Even from an early age, Calista remembered exploring the tide pools and swimming in Bestine's pristine oceans.

To her, the water was almost like a second home. It felt more natural than the air she was forced to breath, her movements within it unconstrained and fluidic. Even as a child, Calista had proven her skills at swimming in the ocean currents to her parents, that she was allowed in them by the time she was four. Some of the fondest memories she had were from diving under the water to look at the formations of coral that grew along the island's rocky struts, swimming amongst the animals and staring at the wonder of life that the sea beheld.

Calista was nearly too old, said the members of the Jedi Council when she was brought before them. She had been nearly six when a Jedi visitor had asked to see her, and remarked on her potential. Her parents agreed to let her leave to join the ranks of the Jedi, and a sorrowful goodbye had followed. The Jedi Council said they would watch her growth carefully, to ensure that she wasn't allowed to develop any bad habits or harbor feelings from her early life that would threaten her life as a Jedi.

The concerns of the Jedi masters were unnecessary, for the girl soon left all sorrow from her parents behind. They became fond memories to relish, but simply memories nonetheless. What Calista took most out of her life on Bestine was the sea, for it seemed to follow her. There were no oceans on Ossus, at least none near the Jedi Temple. And yet, the Jedi teachers opened the young girl's eyes to an ocean of knowledge, and the currents of the Force. Calista grasped the concepts quickly, and immersed herself in listening to the Force. At first, it was not as pleasurable as physically swimming. The girl nearly gave up and retreated to the comfort of the physical water in pools that were provided for Jedi children to play in. She was convinced by a wise Jedi that more patience was needed, and that, still young, she had her entire life to swim within the Force. Calista gratefully accepted the wise Jedi's wisdom, and returned to her attempts to grasp more understanding of the Force.

Her dedication, determination and the advice of a very wise Jedi soon helped the girl to realize the Force as a sea rife with currents, just as her sea on Bestine had been. And although it had no animals or coral, the Force held many secrets of its own, and was rich in life just as the sea had been. Calista's understanding of the Force soon baffled the Jedi who instructed her, and the Jedi masters of the Council seemed pleased at her growth.

Calista did not develop only in her understanding of the Force, but in friendships as well. Shortly after arriving at the Jedi Temple, she met...TBC

As Calista reached the age whereby training expanded into the physical realm, she soon learned how to balance the Force against her physical movements. Before, the Force was a sea of knowledge and observation that she had merely waded into. With the new training, she learned how to truly swim, to immerse herself within the Force so that her movements and her knowledge could both stem from the Force. It was not a crutch for her, as some would see it; the Force seemed to work side-by-side and seamlessly within Calista's own life. Its knowledge and wisdom gave Calista knowledge and wisdom, and its fluidity and grace gave her fluidity and grace of movement. The Jedi masters of the Council grew ever more pleased of Calista's accomplishments and growth, noting what a rare talent she seemed to possess for embedding the Force in nearly all aspects of her life.

By this time, Calista was now eleven years of age, and nearly approaching the time when she would be taken on by a Jedi Master as an apprentice. To be trained one-on-one by one older and wiser was the custom of the Jedi, and Calista was no exception. As her instructors spoke more of the process, Calista became more excited. She began to see some of the Jedi who visited between missions as potential masters, and tried to question some of them. Her instructors soon learned of this and chastised her for that behavior, explaining that it was improper to request a master; a Jedi Master chose his or her student themselves.

It was common for Jedi seeking padawan learners to attend dueling matches and classroom sessions to observe Jedi students in action and in the process of learning, to determine a suitable candidate for the role.
