Shortly after her knighting, Gaenal'ra visited Ossus. She was astounded when she discovered 2 Jedi - Aldar Melron and Rake Tarria - wise in the ways of the force. She was even more astounded when she learned that their teacher had been a professor with no force-powers at all, and an Ysanna. She stayed for a year, refining their training and teaching them to build and use lightsabers - the one thing their old teacher could not teach them. When she left again, she told them to come visit her on Coruscant.
She returned to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, and stayed there until late 13 ABY, practising her abilities in the Force as well as her lightsaber techniques. She escaped Coruscant before the Empire took it, settling on Tatooine until the call came out from Onderon. When she returned to the Jedi Order, one of the first fellow Jedi she met was Aldar Melron.
After the signal from the Ranger outpost on Sabii went dead, Gaenal'ra joined the expedition led by Ember Rekali. They followed the attackers to the Typhon system, where they engaged Darth Kabal and his Sith Neophytes. During the subsequent battle, Gaenal'ra fought Zain Andqus.
She was a natural telepath, and preferred negotiation to direct action when solving problems. Even so, she was a skilled duellist.
