Born into slavery as part of the twi’lek clan Vida, Orn was taken from his mother when he was only five years old and sold onwards to be a house slave. By the time he was 14, he had seen and served a multitude of masters. An incident in his teenage years robbed him of his good looks, his face forever scarred partially due to the severity of the injuries - and partially due to poor care of said injuries.
Orn survived the encounter, but was difficult for his owners to re-sell due to his badly scarred face. Instead, he was saved from spending the rest of his life wading through the trash and gutter of Nar Shaddaa, or the Salt Mines of Ryloth, by being found force sensitive by a Sith customer who took it upon herself to admit the young alien to Korriban.
Interestingly, if one were to check the Academy's records, they would find no mention or record of an Orn'vida ever having been admitted.
After the fall of the Red Rose Syndicate, and his all-but-simultaneous incarceration, Orn'vida (or Bril'eyan, as was the alias he was convicted under) is serving a life sentence for a variety of crimes related to his illegal organ trafficking business that he ran under the Roses. Considering the publicity of his crimes and having inadvertently caused the death of two investigating officers, he's presumably not enjoying his time in the Centax-1 Maximum Correctional.
