Born on Highspire, Ki-Linn was raised to believe in her own divinity through her Thuggee followers. She was unable to do much with her followers since her cousin, Chancellor Daoshen Liao, kept her on a short leash.
When she was at the age of 19, she was married off to Jacob Bannson to seal a political alliance between him and Daoshen. At first she was reluctant marry a non-Capellan, but she was able to give off the appearance of a distraught wife when Jacob would flee Capellan space. The truth of the flight of Jacob, was Ki-linn unleased Death Commandos to kill him.
