Chani Tahn is a Force-sensitive human female from Naboo and an initiate in the Jedi Order. Following an injury suffered on Chandrila while touring with the Naboo Royal Orchestra, a chance meeting with a physician who was secretly a Jedi resulted in a sample of her blood being taken. Once the test returned the presence of a notable midi-chlorian count, Chani learned of her connection with the Force. Chani took an official leave of absence from the Royal Orchestra and began to travel the galaxy under the guise of helping with refugee relief. Unofficially, she left the Orchestra and started training. Since joining the Jedi Order and beginning her study of her symbiotic relationship with the mystical energy binding the universe together, Chani has been at the forefront of some of the New Republic's most ardent battles, such as the holdout at Point Besh on Munto Codru, the Jedi's infiltration of the long-held Imperial planet of Byss, and the Republic's campaign to free Corellia from the influence of the First Order. Most recently she served as a diplomatic liaison between the Royal House of Naboo and the New Republic. Chani continues to devote herself to her study of the Force, seeking to use her gifts to help others.
