Korynn was a slave from a very young age, separated from his parents and taken from his home world of Arkania and forced to work in mines, his free time was spent tinkering with any metals that he could get his hands on, trying to build everything from weapons to toys or even droids. Once it was discovered that he was quite skilled with creating things, he was taken from the mine and his parents and forced to work in a machine shop, building droids for the slavers and repairing ships and weapons for them. It was here that he gained much of his skill with mechanics. Eventually he was being transported to work on the ship of a famous bounty hunter, and the slavers' ship was intercepted by the republic and Korynn was freed. Among the crew was a jedi who realized the slavers' ship was being held together through the force, and realized that without knowing it, Korynn had been using the force to repair and build things. He offered him the chance to go to the Jedi temple to train and Korynn figured that would be the best chance to gain strength to find and free his parents.
