In the tradition of Mara Jade, Khaleen was a bad girl in love with a Jedi. An operative of Count Dooku, she was sent to spy on Quinlan Vos while disguised as, well, a hooker. The plan worked at first, probably because Quinlan was, at the time, not exactly feelin' the light side.
In time, however, the two would fall deeply in love. This cause great consternation for Jedi Master Tholme, who initially opposed of Vos' attraction to Kahleen. Still, he used her, as Dooku before him, to keep tabs on his former padawan.
Eventually, the love between the two grew to a point that each partner vowed to break with their former lives to be together. This decision was made a bit easier by galactic events. For Kahleen, the end of the war meant there was no longer a Count Dooku or a CIS to serve. For Quinlan, Order 66 brought the destruction of the Jedi Order.
In a sense, the end of the war brought with it the certainty of their union. They had no other real choice but to stick together.
The family Vos were last seen on Nar Shaddaa at a somber post-war christening ceremony for their child.
Artist Jan Duursema picked up on an interesting bit of make-up in the bar scene of Attack of the Clones to help create the character of Khaleen. If one looks closely—and, let's face it, with freeze frame—one can notice a number of women sporting the same belly tattoo as Khaleen.
This has since been described as the unique mark of the Disciples of Psusan. The all-female Disciples believe that Psusan, a mystical being, would one day come to kill all non-believers. The question is, really, did Duursema know all this when she created the character, or did she just think that the belly tattoos was a fad worn by obvious hookers? Either way, Khaleen is "hooked" into a design element first seen in Episode II.
A popular fan theory, so far unsubstantiated by any writings in any medium, is that she and Quinlan had another child—named Mara Jade. Thus the Houses of Vos and Skywalker would ultimately be joined.
