Mara Kabol (Ember of Vahl)
Athaleyah Vu Noi (d.)
Moira was born among the Vahla, a nomadic people who were forever in search of their lost homeworld. They were generally regarded as a naturally bright and shrewd people. All Vahla were Force-sensitive, and whether aware or not, had ties to the dark side of the Force. Most Vahla were members of the Ember of Vahl, a dark side cult that worshiped Vahl, a goddess of fire and destruction. Though not all Vahla were members, all were expected to follow the orders of a six-priest central coven believed to have been "chosen" by the goddess. To show their faith and devotion, these Chosen of Vahl would inflict scars upon themselves. The Chosen consulted with Vahl through use of Force-empowered farseeing. They also interpreted signs and portents, and made policy for the Vahla.
Moira, however, has the benefit of Force-sight due to her half Miraluka heritage.
Chosen of VahlEdit
The Chosen of Vahl were the central coven of six priests who governed the dark side cult. Although individual Vahla often set off on their own, all members of the nomadic species were expected to heed the coven's demands. The priests would consult their goddess Vahl, an embodiment of the destructive power of the dark side of the Force, and use farseeing to interpret omens, and make policies for the Vahla. The priests would show their goddess their faith and devotion by scarring themselves.
At a young age, Moira stood out from amongst all others for her farseeing abilities. Seeing this as a blessing from the Goddess Vahl, Moira was taken in by the Chosen of Vahl to undergo training to become one of their priestess.
