Kyle Katarn was born to a farming family on Sulon, and was raised with the ideals of hard work and perseverance. When he was old enough, he enrolled in the Academy for two reasons. First, it would allow him to pursue his own military interests. Second, he felt that it would help his father gain prosperity and recognition. While he was at the Academy, Kyle's family - and all of Sulon - were destroyed in an Imperial invasion. The Empire's agents at the Academy blamed the attack on the Alliance, spreading the seeds of hatred for the Alliance.

They failed to cultivate them, though, when they denied Kyle funeral leave. Thus, he grew to hate the Empire equally. As the Empire became more crystallized, Kyle became more and more frustrated with his service to it. When he encountered the captive Jan Ors, she persuaded him to help her escape. The persuasion came at a time when Kyle was most disheartened, and so he freed her and took up the life of a mercenary. He worked for anyone who would pay him, since he had no love for the Empire or the Alliance. However, Jan Ors petitioned Mon Mothma to seek out and hire Kyle Katarn, for she recognized in him the potential ally he could be.

Mon Mothma agreed. His first mission was part of Operation Skyhook. He was asked to single-handedly infiltrate the secret Imperial base on Danuta and steal the plans to the original Death Star. He succeeded, escaping the base and turning the plans over to the Alliance. He stayed with the Alliance, and was the agent responsible for obtaining early clues to the Empire's Darktrooper development program. Katarn, again working alone, discovered the location of several manufacturing facilities and the main Darktrooper base - the Arc Hammer - and was able to defeat Rom Mohc in one-on-one combat to halt the Darktrooper development and destroy the Arc Hammer.

When Katarn returned from these missions, he was asked to train a group of crack Alliance commandos for undercover missions such as Operation Skyhook. Kyle agreed, and quickly formed a tight-knit group of agents. When Kyle retired from service, one of the commandos - Lieutenant Page - took over as the leader of the commando squad. Sometime afterward, Kyle was visited by the spirit of Rahn, and told of the Jedi heritage of his father. Many years before, Kyle's father had helped a Jedi Master close of the Valley of the Souls. When the Dark Jedi Jerec tried to enter the Valley, Rahn managed to penetrate the physical world and enlist Kyle's help in defeating Jerec and his minions. In the wake of he defeat of Jerec on Ruusan, Kyle trained briefly with Mara Jade before nearly falling to the Dark Side on the planet Dromund Kaas. After fleeing the planet, Kyle enrolled in training at the Jedi praxeum on Yavin 4 fulltime.
