Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Jedi Academy Training Manual
Nomi first picks up a Lightsaber after her husband is killed by criminals on their way to Ambria. She defends herself and kills two of the criminals. Although she saves her own life and the life of her daughter, she vows never to pick up a Lightsaber again. The Guardian Spirit of her husband appears and urges her to continue on and take his place under Master Thon's tutelage. Nomi does so to appease the last wish of her late husband and to protect their daughter.
Nomi surprises herself with how quickly her training under Thon progresses. She always viewed the life of a Jedi as arduous and tough. While there are hardships, she finds herself drawing on reserves of fortitude and wisdom she never though she had. She even carries a Lightsaber, built under the guidance of Thon.
Her biggest challenge is one of the heart. She grieves for her husband and accepts his death, but her heart reaches out to another. She meets Ulic Qel-Droma during the Freedon Nadd uprising and grows fond of him. It doesn't take Jedi powers to see his feelings growing for her as well, but she fears getting too close. What if he dies as well? Is she strong enough to handle the death of another love? Only The Living Force knows for sure.
Nomi Sunrider Encounters Edit
Nomi Sunrider achieves the rank of Jedi Knight for her actions during the Beast Wars of Onderon. She is an example of a character who starts off in one Heroic Class and switches over to another. Her Scout abilities prove useful on occasion, but she now devotes herself to The Jedi Order. Nomi can serve as a mentor to a younger Jedi-in-training, or she can use her scouting skills to help the PCs complete a mission on some hostile world. Conversely, the PCs might interact with Nomi after successfully completing a mission with Ulic Qel-Droma. It's even possible that a hero might become the third side of a love triangle involving Nomi and Ulic Qel-Droma.
