|Chronological and Political Information|
Allyson Strykia, sometimes known by her honor name, Katana, was an Antrixian female who fought against the Galactic Empire during the time of the Galactic Civil War. As a young child, Allyson and her fraternal twin, Graydon, were to be the first individuals trained by the Jedi Order and the Jinsai Order, essentially creating a bridge between the two Orders.
Allyson Strykia was said to be one of the prophesied saviors of her people. Forced into hiding at the end of the Clone Wars, Allyson would emerge from her exile to stand next to her brothers, fighting the Imperial occupation of her homeworld. She would go on to become one of the handful of individuals trained as both Jinsai and Jedi, following the Imperial occupation of the Antrixian Commonwealth.
Allyson was born in the year 32 BBY to Artur Strykia, the High Lord of the Antrixian Commonwealth, and his wife, Marissa Damodred-Strykia. The fraternal twin of Graydon, Allyson was the only female Strykia child born while her father was alive. It was discovered during Marissa’s pregnancy that both twins were Force-sensitive. This was said to be an omen for the Antrixian people, as there had not been twins born with latent talents in the Force for over 500 years.
During her early years, Allyson enjoyed a care-free life, living in the palace of the High Lord on Antrixies, with her brother. Both Allyson and Graydon spent much time with their mother, Marissa, and their personal bodyguard, Barristan Santigar. Allyson was said to be seen as Artur's favorite child, as he had the special nickname for her, Far Sai Mording, Daughter Blade of the Morning.
The twins were tested and apprenticed to Marissa at age 5 as two of the youngest Antrixians to ever be accepted as Jinsai initiates. As an apprentice, Allyson traveled with her mother and on trips to other worlds. Allyson also spent a year alongside her brother, training with the Jedi at the temple on Coruscant. During her last days on Coruscant, Allyson met Chancellor Palpatine when the Strykia family was present at an informal dinner for the Chancellor and Artur.
Allyson and Graydon were accepted by the Jedi Council to begin training at the Jedi Temple also. Their apprenticeships were to be divided into 5 year spans between the Jedi and the Jinsai, making them the first fully trained Antrixian Jedi/Jinsai ever recorded. Both twins were to be groomed as the heads of the Grey Guard for when Dontaine ascended to the High Seat. But due to the outbreak of the Clone Wars and then the Imperial Occupation of the Antrixian Commonwealth, the twins didn’t get a chance to complete training with the Jedi as was initially agreed.
Instead, with the war with the Confederacy of Independent Systems going on, Allyson was apprenticed to
Allyson was evacuated from Antrixies at the start of the rebellion by her eldest brother, Dontaine. Both twins were placed into hiding with their aunt, head of the Antrixian Grey Guard and sister to the High Lord, Moraine Strykia-Sandoval. Eventually, the twins and their aunt came to Coyn, where they remained in hiding for many years. On Coyn, both Allyson and Graydon continued in their Jinsai training with Moraine as their master.
Allyson quickly assimilated to life on Coyn. She learned to play the role of Moraine's daughter and while she respected her aunt, she often got herself into trouble which would frequently test Moraine's patience. While Allyson mostly kept to herself growing up, she quickly befriended and gained the trust of a neighboring Coynite named K'Ehleyr. No matter how many times Allyson told Graydon she could take care of herself, he would always try to be her protector, which often drew the two into fights.
After Graydon left Coyn looking to find his place in the galaxy, Allyson decided to set off to fulfill what she believed to be her destiny - to disrupt the Imperial military and locate Dontaine. K’Ehleyr would accompany Allyson on her journey not only because they were close friends but also because he promised Blade and Moraine he would watch out for her. Together they travelled to many systems in the region of the galaxy known as the Trailing Sector. On their many stops, Allyson and K’Ehleyr were accumulating many Imperial and some local infractions, which led to a hefty bounty being placed on their heads. Some of their misadventures even included assisting the Rebellion.
During a sabotage mission against the Empire, Allyson encountered the Nova Wolves. Finding that they were essentially on the same path, trying to disrupt the Empire, Allyson joined with the Wolves. The Wolves’ benefactor, Sei Taria soon discovered who Allyson truly was and arranged for her to become the leader of the small band of mercenaries.
The Nova Wolves
Almost immediately, Allyson set out to win the respect of the Nova Wolves, setting up daring raids against Imperial interests and elements of the underworld that Allyson deemed necessary to strike. Very quickly, Allyson showed that the blood of her family flowed through her veins and that she was more than capable of leading. This spurred the Nova Wolves into a sense of loyalty and gave them a strong purpose. Over the next several months, Allyson was able to convince two more starship captains to join forces with the Nova Wolves.
Appearance and Personality
Allyson had long brown hair, blue with glowing blue eyes and an athletic figure. She had a good natured, fun-loving and playful personality, for the most part. She could also be hard with a black and white perspective on things. When it came to matters of command, Allyson was an opposite of her brother Graydon, who was far more compassionate. She tended to be very dedicated to achieving her missions and pushing everyone under her command to perform to the best of their abilities.
Jinsai and Jedi Training
During her initiation as a Jinsai, Allyson was given the honor name, Katana. She is well schooled in Shao’dengia Martial Arts and has taken the Knyden Quickblades as her selected Jinsai weapon. As a Jinsai, Allyson is considered Gai’din, a force-sensitive Jinsai.
Allyson paralleled her brother in many ways when it came to her abilities. She was stronger in some aspects of the Force while weaker in others. Together with Graydon, the twins were able to overcome their weaknesses and operate as a strong whole when they worked side-by-side.

Force-Aging: Due to the high midi-chlorian count interacting with a Antrixian physiology, Force-sensitive Antrixians age, physically, at a far slower rate.

Jinsai Honor Code: Most Antrixians receive some schooling and training from Jinsai early in their lives. Due to this, many Antrixians hold the honor code of the Jinsai in high regard. Truth and just actions are the cornerstones by which many Antrixians live their lives.
