"Hey. I'm not a brat."
―Valin Horn

Valin Horn was a male Human Jedi Knight, the son of Corran Horn and Mirax Terrik Horn, and the older brother of Jysella Horn. In 43.5 ABY he became one of the first Jedi to become infected with Force Psychosis, resulting in his encasement in carbonite.

Early life and Yuuzhan Vong War

Horn, named for his paternal grandfather Valin Halcyon, was born about four years after Grand Admiral Thrawn's campaign against the New Republic. A Force-sensitive, he eventually attended Luke Skywalker's Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4 to train as a Jedi Knight.

Horn developed skills similar to those of Jacen Solo, particularly his affinity with animals. Around the age of eleven, he found he could communicate with animals through the Force, though, like his father and grandfather before him, he was weak in the art of telekinesis. Since Horn could not lift a stone with telekinesis, he instead used the Force to get small insects called garnants to move it by convincing them it was food. His father saw the stone move and thought he had used telekinesis, until Horn explained how it had really happened. He had brought food and left it for the garnants to keep his promise before leaving.

During the Yuuzhan Vong War, Horn was trapped on Yavin 4 with the other Praxeum students when the Peace Brigade blockaded the system. Fortunately, Horn, Sannah and Kam Solusar managed to survive long enough to escape during Anakin Solo's risky mission to save the trapped Jedi.[3] Horn then spent some time training with the remaining Jedi initiates onboard his maternal grandfather Booster Terrik's ship Errant Venture.[4]

After the Fall of Coruscant, he and the other Jedi children were sent to the Maw for safety for the remainder of the war.[5] At the end of the conflict, Horn traveled to Zonama Sekot for Grand Master Skywalker's meeting with the surviving Jedi.[6]

Second Galactic Civil War

"You're a fraction the man your father is."
"Funny. That's what I was going to say to you."
Darth Caedus and Valin Horn

By the time of the Second Galactic Civil War, Horn was performing missions for the Jedi Order, and from his age he would be presumed to have reached the rank of Jedi Knight. As conflict developed against his ancestral homeworld Corellia, Grand Master Luke Skywalker ensured that his duties kept him well away from anywhere that his loyalties might be tested.

During a mission in the underlevels of Coruscant, accompanied by Jedi Master Kyle Katarn, fellow Jedi Knights Thann Mithric and Kolir Hu'lya, and Jedi apprentice Seha Dorvald, Horn and the group came into confrontation with Jacen Solo. During the ensuing battle, Katarn was severely wounded after being stabbed in the chest by Solo, forcing Horn and Dorvald to remove him from the fight which culminated in the death of Mithric.

Horn later participated in the operation to destroy Centerpoint Station, disguising himself as a Galactic Alliance Guard trooper alongside fellow Jedi, including Kyp Durron and Jaden Korr.

A new menace

"Jedi Horn! Is it true you're on a destructive rampage?"
Galaxy 9 News reporter to Valin Horn

In 43.5 ABY, Valin Horn was suddenly possessed with an enigmatic madness that caused him to believe that everyone he knew had been replaced by impostors. He attacked his own father, but was captured by his parents and taken to the Jedi Temple to be evaluated. He broke free, however, and became a fugitive of the Galactic Alliance, making Chief of State Natasi Daala even more distrustful towards the Jedi. After a long manhunt, he was caught by Luke Skywalker and placed in the Mon Mothma Memorial Medical Center, and later moved back to the Asylum Block.[7]

Eventually, Daala released a warrant for Horn, and he was arrested by Galactic Alliance Security forces under Captain Oric Harfard, and put on trial. He was found incapable of standing trial, but too dangerous to be kept in a conventional prison, so he was encased in carbonite and placed in the Armand Isard Correctional Facility. A rescue attempt to free Horn was made by rogue Jedi Seff Hellin, who was suffering from the same disease. It was unsuccessful, however, and resulted in Hellin's capture by Darkmeld, a covert organization formed by Jedi Knight Jaina Solo to counter Daala's efforts to undermine the Jedi Order.[7]

Personality and traits

In his youth, Valin Horn was a follower and wanted to be a hero. He wanted to be a Jedi as powerful as Anakin Solo, which got him and a few other young Jedi into a lot of trouble when Solo came to Yavin 4 to rescue Tahiri Veila.[3]

Like his father, he was lacking in telekinesis, but he made up for it with his affinity with animals. At one point his father Corran Horn said he was proud of him when he thought Valin had "lifted" a rock a minuscule height off the ground. In actuality Valin had made a nest of garnants think the rock was food. A few seconds later Ganner Rhysode showed up and implied that all Valin would be was a failure, and Valin made the garnants think he was food. In a way, Valin had made Rhysode eat his words. He once again manipulates insect life when he is being held for observation in the Jedi Temple after he exhibited traits of a mysterious illness. He successfully calls the bugs to him through the Force and has them chew through the restraints on his medical bed in order to escape.

As a man, as reflected upon by his sister Jysella, Valin was level-headed and easy going. She also described him as gentle. The Solos comment that both Valin and Jysella are well liked within the Jedi community.

Affiliation

Valin Horn was a male Human Jedi apprentice, and the son of Corran Horn and Mirax Horn, and was the brother of Jysella Horn. He was based on the secret Jedi planet Eclipse.

He and Jysella were picked by Jedi Masters Kyle Katarn and Nathaniel Kenobi Solo to help during the Mission to Korriban.

He was assigned to Kyle's group, which included Jaden Korr, Tenel Ka, Hivrekh'wao'cheklev, and Orroz. Their group was attacked by some of Darth Mutatos's alchemical animals and was forced to hide in the Tomb of Ajunta Pall.

They helped rescue a bloodied, ghosting Nathan, whose group had been captured by Mutatos. Valin blamed Nathan for his sister's capture, but also felt afraid. Tenel helped to calm his rage and fear, while the group discovered three species, that no one had seen in awhile: the Korribanites, the Original Sith, and the Massassi.

Valin helped during the minor battle at the Court of Yun-Coria and helped to rescue his sister.

They returned to Eclipse and served the New Jedi Order for the rest of the war.

Sith Crusade

During the Sith Crusade, Valin followed in his father's footsteps as a member of the newly reorganized, all-Jedi Rogue Squadron. He served with distinction at Dathomir and Ossus, then later went on to assume command of Rogue Squadron when the rest of its members resigned in protest of Presidential Order 0139/D. It is unknown at this time if he survived the Battle of Coruscant, or perished alongside his father.
