Qu Rahn was a human male Jedi Master native of the planet Socorro who served the Galactic Republic during its waning years. When the Republic was reformed into the Galactic Empire in 19 BBY and the Great Jedi Purge began, Rahn went into hiding, evading numerous Imperial Inquisitors. At some point during the Purge, Rahn visited his former Jedi Master, Yoda, from whom he learned the secret of living as a Force ghost after physical death. Elevating Rahn to the rank of Jedi Master, Yoda also told him about the long-lost Valley of the Jedi, a powerful Force nexus which contained numerous trapped Jedi souls. Rahn swore to find it and free the spirits, but after many years of obsessive and fruitless search, he almost gave up.
A vision led Rahn to a common farmer called Morgan Katarn, who had accidentally stumbled upon the Valley. Having foreseen that he would soon be captured, Rahn instructed Morgan to pass the information about the Valley to his son, Kyle. During this time period, Qu Rahn eventually joined the Rebel Alliance during the early years of the Galactic Civil War, being one of the few Jedi left in the galaxy to fight against the Empire.
In 5 ABY, just as he had seen in his vision, Rahn was captured by one of the Inquisitors, Jerec, and his band of Dark Jedi. Jerec, who also wanted to find the Valley in order to harness its power, probed Rahn's mind and learned about Morgan and his discovery. Having become a traitor in his own mind, Rahn aggressively attacked Jerec's Dark Jedi, but was killed by the Inquisitor himself.
Following Yoda's teachings, Rahn continued to live as a Force ghost, appearing to Kyle Katarn and instructing him to stop Jerec. Rahn also appeared to the youngest of Jerec's Dark Jedi, Yun, guiding him toward the light side. Under Rahn's guidance, Katarn killed Jerec and freed the souls of the Jedi trapped in the Valley. Yun also played his part by giving his life in order to save Katarn's.
