The Young

Nield was one of the teenage leaders of the Young, a youth organization that halted the civil war between the Melida and the Daan on the planet Melida/Daan. Nield was a strict leader, primarily in the way he disciplined the other children. When his ally, Cerasi, was killed, Nield began to hate his comrade-in-arms, Obi-Wan Kenobi. However, the two made up to an extent after the civil war ended. At that time Neild became one of the three leading members of Melida/Daan.


Nield's family was part of the Daan people. Nield's parents and his three brothers were killed during the civil war when he was just a child. He was raised by a cousin, but she died because of the war, too. After her death, Nield didn't have anyone to look after him. He wandered in the streets of Zehava alone for some time, until he met Cerasi, a Melida girl. Together, the two youths decided to unite the Daan and the Melida orphans, to create an organization which would fight for peace, known as the the Young.

After some time, during which the Young fought using guerrilla warfare tactics, the group helped the Jedi, Qui-Gon Jinn, and his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi, to rescue their fellow Jedi, Tahl. Later, Kenobi choose to stay and fight with the Young. Under Nield and Cerasi's leadership, the Young won the war, and formed a government. Nield was elected as Governor, and head of the New History Squad, which began to tear down the Halls of Evidence. Cerasi and Kenobi began to doubt the policy of destroying Melida/Daan’s history, no matter how bloody, and moved to stop the destruction.

Nield felt that they had turned against him. He accused Kenobi of being an outsider, and tried to get enough votes to overthrow the council. The tension came to a peak when the elders and Neild's follower's, both armed, converged on the Halls of Evidence. Kenobi and Cerasi arrived to try and stop the violence, but Cerasi, who was unarmed, was shot and killed.

Both Nield and Kenobi were deeply disturbed by Cerasi's death, but Nield blamed Kenobi for not getting there faster, mostly because he was afraid that he had himself fired the fatal shot. Soon after, Qui-Gon Jinn returned to Melida/Daan and together with Kenobi, they investigated Cerasi's murder. The duo discovered that a member of the Young, named Mawat, had armed both sides, and placed sharp shooters at the scene, who had killed Cerasi. When Obi-Wan informed Neild of this, they left to try and stop the war being waged in Cerasi's name, although they were unable to halt the violence. Qui-Gon subsequently arrived and produced a holo of Cerasi speaking of peace. Qui-Gon was able to negotiate a cease-fire, and Nield was made one of the three planetary leaders.
