this red-headed young man was a student of history, and was one of Doctor Murk Lundi's best students, some six years before the Battle of Naboo. When Doctor Lundi traveled to Kodai in search of a Sith Holocron, Omal discovered that another student, Norval, was trailing him in order to steal the Holocron for himself. Omal set out to stop Norval from achieving this. When Norval tried to steal the Holocron for himself, Omal fought to retain the Holocron for Doctor Lundi. In the struggle that ensued, Omal and Norval lost the Holocron when it fell into a deep, underwater chasm. In the years following the loss of the Holocron and Lundi's imprisonment by the Jedi Knights, Omal and another student, Dedra, lived together on an unspecified planet.
