During the Old Republic era, Lirondo learns the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Order. He ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight. He is part of Farfalla’s Knights, a group of 300 Jedi commanded by Lord Valenthyne Farfalla.
In 1003 BBY, Farfalla’s Knights join Lord Hoth’s Army of Light in order to combat the Brotherhood of Darkness. Founded by Jedi Master turned Sith Lord Skere Kaan, the Brotherhood of Darkness is an organization of Sith that had declared war on the Republic.
Lirondo fights against the Brotherhood of Darkness in Seventh Battle of Ruusan, defeating many combatants with his lightsaber and battle ax.
