Chronological and political information

Old Republic era[1]

Freia Kallea was a female Human scout from Brentaal IV.



A Human living around 3,700 BBY, Kallea was one of the first female pilots who decided to map out a part of the galaxy. She managed to blaze a trail beginning at the Corporate Sector and continuing through the Core to the other side, effectively passing through the whole galaxy. This route would be called the Hydian Way, opening the galaxy beyond The Slice, and altering the scale of galactic civilization.[1]

After that, Kallea became a symbol of Brentaal's cultural strength and endurance, and her name would pass to posterity. She then retired from the life of a pilot to marry into a Brentaal family.[1]

Now a noblewoman, Kallea (who retained her maidens name) would work to turn her new family into a major trading enterprise, the Kallean League. Even years after her death, the Kallean League would still remain a large consortium of representatives of different trading houses.

Over three thousand years after her time, during the Galactic Empire, Kallea's tale would be presented as a five-hour, three-part opera, the Kallea Cycle, portraying her life and especially her discovery of the Hydian Way. The Kallea Cycle debuted in 1 ABY, inside the Grand Convocation Chamber of the former Senate Building on Coruscant. Its opening was a gala attended by the Coruscanti elite, including Grand Admiral Takel. Later, the Cycle would be performed on Brentaal, particularly in Votrad stadium, the greatest arena on the planet, as the opera required huge sets.

Shortly after that, Kallea's story was once again adapted, now as a holo-feature produced, directed, and starring Neile Janna. Kallea's Hope was then a format easily understood and accessible to the majority of the people, and some artists of the New Order credit it with restoring interest in Kallea's person and the previous opera.

Behind the scenes

Freia Kallea's discovery of the Hydian Way originally took place around 3,000 BBY, as established in sources such as Imperial Double-Cross, but was later retconned to take place before the events of Star Wars: The Old Republic.[2]
