Clee Rhara was a female Jedi Knight during the Old Republic circa the time of the Battle of Naboo. With a magnetic personality, Clee made many friends at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant including such renowned Masters such as Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and Jedi Master Tahl. An experienced pilot as well, Clee proposed the idea to the Jedi Council of establishing a starfighter training facility on Centax 2, on of Coruscant's satellites. While the Jedi Council was leery of establishing such a training facility, the Republic Senate was even more so.
The Jedi Council allowed Clee to explore her idea further, but the Senate feared the Jedi would abuse the advantages of having its own starfighter force. However, the program was eventually approved by the Senate and even provided a few old fighters for Clee to use in her program. Excited about the program, many young Jedi students chose to enlist themselves in the program, and as her Padawan, Clee chose the young and promising Garen Muln, friend to Master Qui-Gon's Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Clee program started off promising, however, a string of malfunctions and accidents with the starfighters, one that nearly killed a Senator left the Jedi Knights as well as the Senate with concerns. An investigation was soon launched headed by Clee who had the help of her friends, Masters Qui-Gon and Tahl. With their help, the Jedi soon discovered that the malfunctions were due to sabotage by an infiltrator using the alias Tarrence Chenati, who unfortunately escaped before he could be questioned.
