Tamith Kai is Brakiss's instructor and the secondary antagonist of the Young Jedi Knights novels.
At one point, Tamith Kai volunteered to be a teacher at the Shadow Academy. Kai was tasked by Brakiss to discipline and recruit students for the Academy.
23 years after the Battle of Yavin, Tamith had Lowbacca, Jacen and Jaina Solo kidnapped to be her and Brakiss' students. When Brakiss divided the students, Kai tried to get Lowbacca to turn to the dark side through his short tempers. Lowbacca became angry and destroyed a sonic generator. Tamith Kai was defeated when the platform she was standing on collapsed.
