     Jedi Apprentice 


Qui-Gon Jinn's second Padawan, Xanatos was a bright student who was frequently praised for his technical ability. On a mission to his homeworld of Telos, Xanatos betrayed Qui-Gon to his father, Telosian Governor Crion; when Qui-Gon cut down Crion in front of him, Xanatos swore revenge. He went on to fund Offworld, a mining corporation with a hand in numerous illegal concerns galaxy wide, and made several attempts to get his revenge on Qui-Gon, including trying to blow up the Jedi Temple and steal the treasury. Cornerned on Telos, Xanatos ultimately committed suicide rather than be captured.

Jenna Zan Arbor

A renegade Mad Scientist with a passion for discovery, Jenna Zan Arbor arranged for Qui-Gon Jinn's kidnapping at the hands of the Bounty Hunter, Ona Nobis so that she might gain a better understanding of the Force. Qui-Gon's apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi rescued him and captured Arbor, though not before the scientist had both tortured Qui-Gon, and attempted to wipe out the entire world of Belasco with a genetically engineered bacterium. Escaping custody, Arbor had several run-ins with Obi-Wan and his apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, before allying herself with Granta Omega in a bid to brainwash the Senate. Omega was killed, but Arbor escaped and went on to manufacture numerous weapons for first the Confederacy of Independent Systems, and then the new Galactic Empire. She was eventually mindwiped by Lina Naltree, and finally killed by Darth Vader for her failure.

Granta Omega

Xanatos' illegitimate son, Granta Omega is a Force Blank: a being with no connection whatsover to the living Force. Having inherited his father's wealth, and his hatred for the Jedi, Omega embarks on a campaign against the Jedi Order and the Old Republic. He makes several attempts to kill Obi-Wan and Anakin, arranges massacres and flare-ups across the galaxy, and takes down several other Jedi along the way, before meeting his end at Obi-Wan's hands.
