Life on Naboo
Long ago, Agate's ancestors traded, made agreements and became the breeders or trainers of Royal family's Guarlaras. They bred the majestic beasts with more advanced breeding management and technologies. The trade and agreements made the descendants of Gua'lara family became wealthier. They lived near Theed, the capital city of Naboo. Many guarlara statues could be found in Theed as the symbol of nobility, loyalty and strength.
But not all the Gua'lara's ancestors made the decided to trade and live in the Capital City or nearby. Agate family had a small ranch not far from the city. Some members lived far away from Theed. Agate and her family often went to the remote places such as the snowy northern mountains of Naboo. At those places, they found the wild and feral Guarlaras ran free. They also met the tribe members who bred the Guarlaras in more traditional ways.
There, she felt more connected to the Force, and she wanted to learn more about it.

She never heard about him again until her future master, Sa Ool told her that he had met Balia on Naboo.

Although she could save the locals' lives from the attack, in the viewpoint of creature handlers, the mission considered as a failure. Frustrated and depressed, she rested, meditated and sought guidance.

They learned that the beasts had many similarities to other sentient beings. Therefore, the locals respected the beasts and they wanted to know better.
The Creature Handler team build the Animal Sanctuary to heal and protect the creatures in need, which were sick, injured, trapped, distressed and hallucinated with the dark side. After the creatures healed, they returned the animals to the wild. Some of the creatures chose to stay and became domesticated animals or pets. The locals celebrated the moment as the Friends of Beasts Day. Those events reminded her about the story of her ancestors who tamed the first Guarlara on Naboo.
