“There have been so many failures, by teachers who believed in the Code with all their being – Master Arca failed Ulic, as Master Baas failed Exar Kun, as Kae and Zhar and the others of the Council failed Revan.”—Zez-Kai Ell
According to Mical, Arren Kae was one of the Masters that Revan held during his time as a Padawan. The Jedi scholar would mention to Meetra Surik in 3951 BBY that she was among the Masters blamed for the Jedi schism during the Mandalorian Wars, and for the Civil War that followed. Zez-Kai Ell also mentioned Kae as he spoke of the failures of the Jedi Masters of the past, because of Revan's fall to the dark side of the Force. Kae's exile from the Order was mentioned to Meetra by both Mical and Kreia, the latter providing further details on the reasons for her sentence. According to Kreia, Master Kae had managed to keep a secret love affair, and a child for almost a decade, in violation of one of the Order's rules of that time which stated Jedi should not have children. On her account, Kae was exiled when her infractions came to light.
The child's father was Senator and General Yusanis of Echani, a famed and powerful warrior. When Kae was exiled, she was welcomed by Revan to join the Revanchists and fought the Mandalorians alongside him until the Battle of Malachor V. Yusanis followed her to war, breaking an oath to a person to whom he had pledged himself, and eventually became one of the greatest heroes of the conflict, but he would return alone and forsake battle, serving since as a Senator for his people. Their child, Brianna, would later be known as the Last of the Handmaidens, the Echani sisters that catered to Jedi Master Atris.
Arren was tragically killed during the Mandalorian Wars at Malachor V even though no body was ever recovered. Yusanis was slain by Revan in the Second Sith War when Revan sought to destabilize the Echani worlds. Meetra Surik would meet Brianna in the Telosian Jedi Academy and speak to her, indulging her curiosity and answering her questions on how it was to feel the Force. As she followed Atris, Brianna secretly wished to follow the call of her mother and become a Jedi like her, but like her half-sisters, she had sworn an oath never to learn the ways of the Jedi, even though she was Force-sensitive. Kae's only legacy to her daughter was her Jedi apparel, which Brianna donned for training purposes as she imparted some Echani training to Meetra. Brianna eventually broke her oath to Atris, and became one of Meetra's disciples.
