Species: Human

Homeworld: Haruun Kal

Portrayed by: Samuel L. Jackson (films, The Clone Wars movie)
Voiced by: T.C. Carson (The Clone Wars series)
Appears in: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | The Clone Wars | Son of Dathomir | Dark Disciple | Kanan | Revenge of the Sith

"You must realize there aren't enough Jedi to protect the Republic. We're keepers of the peace, not soldiers."

A stony-faced Jedi with a purple lightsaber, and champion of the Jedi Council, second only to Master Yoda. He shows great distrust in Anakin, doubting his suitability for the life of a Jedi.
  • Ace Custom: His Jedi starfighter is mostly white with a few red and green markings.
  • Action Dad: A father figure to fellow High Councillor Depa Billaba, and certainly a fierce warrior.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Created and utilizes form VII, Vaapad, which is this trope in a nutshell. Vaapad is about constantly attacking as fast as possible, to overwhelm the enemy's defenses.
  • Attack Reflector: During the climax of their duel, Mace used his lightsaber to reflect Sidious' own lightning back at him, which melted and scarred the Chancellor's face beyond recognition.
  • Author Appeal: Samuel L. Jackson requested a purple lightsaber in Attack of the Clones because it's his favorite color (and it would make him easier to spot in large battle scenes).
  • Badass Baritone: Provided by both Samuel L. Jackson and TC Carson.
  • Bald of Awesome: He is, in fact, one of the few characters for whom Samuel L. Jackson does not wear a wig.
  • Bald Black Leader Guy: Mace was the leader of the Jedi Council (while Yoda was the Grand Master of the Jedi Order) until he stepped down to concentrate on kicking ass in the Clone Wars.
  • Big Good: Alongside Yoda in the prequel trilogy.
  • Bling-Bling-BANG!: His lightsaber hilt is studded with electrum, an alloy of gold and silver, as part of his privileges as a high-ranking Jedi Master. There is debate over whether it has "Bad Motherfucker" engraved on it. (Samuel L. Jackson confirmed on The Graham Norton Show that it does indeed have it engraved on the handle, so that clears that up.)
  • Blood Knight: His Vaapad fighting style weaponizes it, using his own inner darkness and that of his foe to increase his power.
  • The Comically Serious: When teamed up with Jar Jar Binks during "The Disappeared", his serious demeanor is there to offset Jar Jar's wackiness.
  • Cool Sword: Mace has a purple lightsaber, which stands out amongst the blue and green lightsabers all the other Jedi tend to have.
  • Cynical Mentor: Mace is quite cynical in his view of galactic affairs compared to many of the other Jedi, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi; he also doesn't seem to like Anakin much at all and opposes little Anakin's training from the start.
  • Dangerous Forbidden Technique: Mace is very particular about whom he teaches Vaapad to, as most who have tried have fallen to the Dark Side. Form VII as a whole is like that, which is why it's much more prevalent among the Sith.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mace is often very sarcastic.
    Ahsoka: Guard duty?! For how long?
    Mace: Longer now.
  • Death Glare: Gives one to Anakin, right before Sidious blasts him away.
  • Destination Defenestration: In Revenge of the Sith, he goes out in spectacular fashion after being blasted out a window by Darth Sidious' Sith lightning.
  • Dislikes the New Guy: Mace Windu more than any other Jedi disapproves of Anakin Skywalker joining the Order. He continues to voice his general dislike for Anakin's volatile personality and unpredictability throughout his career. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin reveals Palpatine is a Sith Lord and Windu starts to reconsider his opinion, until Skywalker ultimately helps Palpatine kill him.
  • Disney Villain Death: Although he's not a villain. Pointed out by Jackson himself.
  • For Want of a Nail: Raising his lightsaber to dramatically kill Palpatine instead of just stabbing him gave Anakin the opportunity to intervene while his emotions were conflicted, thus causing Mace's death, Anakin's Face–Heel Turn, and The Purge of the Jedi.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Mace is a virtually unstoppable force in combat, and is willing to break the Jedi Code if he feels it will serve the greater good.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Mace uses a purple lightsaber.
  • Informed Ability: Though Word of God has made him out to be a crafty diplomat and politician, his onscreen representations almost exclusively focuses on his life as a warrior, and a rather brutal one. In fact, it is his lack of diplomatic ability that alienated Anakin and contributed to his fall to the dark side, and by extension Mace's own death.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Deconstructed. Just because a Jerkass Has a Point doesn't mean He is Right. Although Mace did make a valid statement that Anakin was not fit to be trained as a Jedi, other Jedi (Obi-Wan, Qui-Gon, Ahsoka and even Yoda) reached out to Anakin and urged him to improve himself. By the point Mace made his distrust of Anakin well-known, Anakin had proved himself a worthy Jedi several times over. In fact, it's Mace's stated lack of trust that indirectly makes Anakin easy prey to Darth Sidious' manipulations.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: His cynicism, pragmatism, and stoicism make Mace come off as a cold uncaring jerk. Combined with his severe trust issues, most Jedi and other characters he interacts with have a difficult relationship with him. However, Mace does care deeply for all life, as shown with his efforts to save the Zillo Beast from destruction, and his increasingly poor attitude during the Clone Wars is due to the heavy death toll the war has taken on the Jedi Order and civilians.
  • Kick the Dog: Instead of trying to reason with Boba about the circumstances of his father's death (that the latter was a natural casualty of war for attacking Republic forces, working with the leader of the Separatists, and the fact that Jango had tried to murder him first), Windu effectively tells the boy to deal with the fact that he wasn't able to complete his revenge and move on. Naturally, this had the opposite effect, and by the original trilogy Boba is one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy and a frequent associate of Darth Vader.
  • Knight in Sour Armor: Mace is far more cynical than Yoda, to the point that he was distinctly unwilling to trust either Anakin or the Senate's legal system in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Knight Templar: Somewhat downplayed as Mace lacks the self-righteousness of many of his counterparts, but he believes in unquestionably upholding the peace of the Republic, even if it means breaking the Jedi Code. Palpatine ends up playing this against him, making him appear to be a lawless assassin trying to kill a helpless old man.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a purple-bladed lightsaber, the only one seen in canon at this point and it stands out amongst the blue and green lightsabers all the other Jedi tend to have.
  • Master Swordsman: According to Word of God, he was Yoda's superior as a warrior. According to other sources, he's second to Yoda, and tied with Dooku. He also perfected Vaapad, a long incomplete and dangerous lightsaber fighting form.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
    • He probably should have listened to Anakin's plea not to kill Palpatine and instead place him on trial — it would have at least kept the Jedi from being branded as traitors, and it could have delayed or outright prevented Order 66 from taking place. However, his action ended up forcing Anakin's hand, which caused him to lose his hand, die, and led to Order 66's implementation.
    • Going back further, he is the one who issues the decree that Anakin will use his relationship with Palpatine to gather intel on what Palpatine might be plotting. He believes it is in the interest of the Jedi's loyalty to the Senate and the Republic, but in reality it just gives Palpatine more time to twist Anakin around his finger, which ends up undoing them all.
    • Indirectly, it is his refusal to apologize to Ahsoka for the way the Council treated her that leads to her walking away from the Order, an event that further inflames Anakin's anger with the Jedi.
  • Number Two: To Yoda in the Jedi Order.
  • One-Man Army: Mace is on par with Yoda in his ability to devastate Separatist infantry singlehandedly, as seen during his systematic devastation of the droid forces he encounters in "Liberty on Ryloth".
  • One Steve Limit: Averted; Windu is not the first character in the Star Wars universe called Mace. One of the main characters of Star Wars: Ewok Adventures had the same name, way back in 1984.
  • Parental Substitute: To Depa Billaba, his former Padawan. He rescued her from the pirates who had killed her parents as an infant, being the one to take her to the Temple. He then became her Master when she was old enough to be apprenticed, and over time they became very close.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Although still bound by the Jedi Code, Mace is more than willing to advocate more simple and direct approaches to ending the Clone Wars and stopping the Sith. He advocates sending Jedi to assassinate (instead of capture) Count Dooku after he destroys a refugee convoy and tries to kill Palpatine despite having him at his mercy because he knows he is too dangerous to keep alive.
  • Psychic Powers: Like many of the other Jedi.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He's one of the most powerful Jedi to ever live, and his lightsaber is purple.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Very sound in judgment and willing to listen to Anakin, even when he doesn't trust him.
  • Rule of Cool: This trope is the main reason why Mace Windu has a purple lightsaber, because Samuel L. Jackson thought it looked cool. (Also so that he would be visible in a huge lightsaber battle.) His lightsaber is the only one used in the movie canon that is not red, blue or green. This is lampshaded by General Grievous in the Revenge of the Sith video game.
    "Who fights with a purple lightsaber anyway?"
  • Sacrificial Lion: He is the first major Jedi to be killed, which sets the stage for the Jedi assassinations that were to follow.
  • Scary Black Man: His implacable nature and fierce disposition are such that, in the Ryloth campaign, Dooku ordered Wat Tambor and his army to retreat rather than face Windu. In "The Disappeared, Part I", he was able to scare off a Frangawl cultist just by looking at him (after taking out the rest of his allies).
  • Shatterpoint Tap: His unique ability is being able to see the shatterpoints of things in the Force. He has only been seen using it once, to break the windshield of a broken-down Republic walker and rescue its unconscious driver.
  • Shoot the Dog: He views killing Palpatine instead of arresting him as this, given that the Sith Lord was too dangerous to keep alive and that he could manipulate the senate at a trial. Anakin disagreed.
  • The Stoic: He is a very calm and collected Jedi, and rarely lets any emotion show openly on his face. He has only been seen smiling once (during an episode of The Clone Wars), and the only time he seems upset is after learning Palpatine is actually Darth Sidious.
  • Supporting Leader: During the Jedi assault on the arena of Geonosis in Attack of the Clones.
  • Token Human: Until Anakin and Obi-Wan join the Jedi Council.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Mace dies in an attempt first to arrest and then just kill Chancellor Palpatine, which is not only unsuccessful, but also provides Palpatine with ammunition for his claims that the Jedi shot first. In a double irony, he also ends up making The Chosen One (Anakin), whom he himself had doubts about already, switch his allegiance to the man he attempted to "assassinate".
  • We Used to Be Friends: He and Count Dooku were once friends, and after Dooku left the Jedi Order Mace believed that he was still a good man. The events of Geonosis revealed the truth to him.
  • World's Best Warrior: The single greatest fighter in the Jedi Order at the time of his death, having cornered and pretty much submitted Darth Sidious when three other members of the Jedi Council were cut down in seconds (although it is perennially ambiguous if Sidious was beaten for real or only threw the fight). His only real peers at the time were Yoda (whom Windu may or may not be superior to according to conflicting sources) and Anakin (who's the Chosen One and can equal him in Force power, but definitely not in swordsmanship).


Master Ki-Adi-Mundi
"There is no such thing as luck."

Species: Cerean

Homeworld: Cerea

Portrayed by: Silas Carson
Voiced by: Brian George (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Revenge of the Sith

"Impossible! The Sith have been extinct for a millennium!"

Alongside Yoda and Mace Windu, Ki-Adi-Mundi is a senior member of the Jedi High Council and often helps lead and guide the Council's decisions. He is a skilled warrior and commander.
  • Agent Scully: Has a history of this. He was extremely skeptical of Qui-Gon Jinn's assertion that the Sith had returned, and dismissed Padmé Amidala's claim that Count Dooku was behind the assassination attempt against her. He was also the most vocal in denying the possibility of Yoda's claim about making contact with the dead Qui-Gon, insisting it is impossible to maintain ones identity in the Force after death.
  • Badass Beard: He has a small white beard.
  • Bald of Awesome: A particularly badass Jedi with a bald, racially characteristic head.
  • Body-Count Competition: After the second Battle of Geonosis, he manages to outscore Anakin and Ahsoka. He takes note of their competition and offhandedly asks what he's won. When Anakin replies that Ki-Adi won his respect, Obi-Wan half-jokingly remarks that it's quite a prize indeed.
  • Cool Old Guy: When he heard Anakin denying to acknowledge Ahsoka's victory in the Body-Count Competition mentioned above, Mundi told Anakin that he out-scored both of them.
  • Horrible Judge of Character: Before the Clone Wars, he refused to believe that Count Dooku was capable of falling to the Dark Side and ordering a political assassination.
    Ki-Adi-Mundi: He is a political idealist, not a murderer.
    • Could be somewhat justified in the fact that judging by his age, he had to have known Dooku for decades before the latter left the Order, so it might just be denial that his old friend had become such a monster.
  • Kill It with Fire: Once ordered his troops to use flamethrowers against the Geonosians.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Mauve Shirt: In the films, he is the only Jedi Council member besides Yoda, Windu, Obi-Wan, or Anakin to have any lines.
  • My Brain Is Big: He's a Cerean, a species with very large, elongated cranium that holds a binary brain.
  • Non-Uniform Uniform: His signature outfit is notably different from most Jedi robes seen in the films, making it look like he actually goes around in street wear (which, in fairness, is what Jedi robes are supposed to resemble).
  • Not So Above It All: In "Landing at Point Rain", Anakin and Ahsoka hold a Body-Count Competition during battle. After the battle, Ahsoka asked for Anakin's total, and it turned out she won. Anakin, however, claimed that since he had called in the airstrike, it should add enough to his tally to make it a draw. Hearing this, Ki-Adi added his own total, which was larger than either Ahsoka's or Anakin's, causing both Anakin and Obi-Wan to fall into Stunned Silence for a moment as he casually asked what had he won.
    Anakin: My everlasting respect, Master Mundi.
    Ki-Adi-Mundi: [sounding almost disappointed] Oh.
    Obi-Wan: [reassuringly] That is a gift Anakin rarely bestows, I assure you.
  • Oh, Crap!: One of the few Jedi who had a prescient moment about the Jedi Purge. Alas, it was not enough to save him, but he went down fighting instead of being shot in the back like so many of his comrades.
  • Properly Paranoid:
    • He was the only member of the Council to loudly admit that Dooku was not the Big Bad as they believed but The Dragon instead, and that someone even more powerful was lurking in the shadows.
    • While he was wrong to suspect the Sith were behind the voices Yoda had been hearing, he correctly guessed that the Master-Apprentice link between Yoda and Dooku could be exploited by the Sith, which Sidious and Dooku indeed ended up doing at the conclusion of that arc.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: His aforementioned suspicions about the Master-apprentice link are correct. However, he was wrong about the Sith being behind the voices Yoda was hearing.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's a Cerean.
  • Snow Means Death: Killed while he and his troops are fighting a battle in the middle of a snowstorm.

    Plo Koon 

Master Plo Koon
"We are justice."

Species: Kel Dor

Homeworld: Dorin

Voiced by: James Arnold Taylor (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Revenge of the Sith

"When you ask for trouble, you should not be surprised when it finds you."

A Kel Dor Jedi Master and member of the Council, Plo Koon is regarded as one of the wisest Jedi in the Order. He has a close bond and serves as a parental figure for Ahsoka Tano, whom he found and brought into the Order as a child.
  • Ace Custom: He flies a Jedi starfighter with a white and blue color scheme.
  • Ace Pilot: He was shown to be a pilot with skills rivaling Anakin's.
  • Ascended Extra: He was a background character in the movies. In The Clone Wars, he has the most screen-time of all the Council members except for Obi-Wan, who's one of the deuteragonists.
  • Author Appeal: He is Dave Filoni's favorite character.
  • Badass Baritone: James Arnold Taylor uses a deep, Ian McKellen inspired voice for Plo.
  • Badass Long Robe: Dons an exceptionally badass one in "Lethal Trackdown".
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Apparently Kel Dor like Koon can survive in space for a short time, with only their breathing masks protecting them.
  • Character Death: He is killed during Order 66 when his starfighter is shot down on Cato Neimoidia by his clone trooper wingmates.
  • Creepy Good: His squishy alien physiognomy and vaguely evil-looking mask make him look pretty sinister for a good guy.
  • Cool Mask: His breathing mask.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He's got his moments, particularly in "Lethal Trackdown" when it comes to Ahsoka's lack of subtlety.
  • Explosive Decompression: Averted and lampshaded. Before leaving a space pod, he ordered his men to put on their helmets and follow him. He didn't need any protection, because he can survive in space long enough to deal with a few droids.
  • A Father to His Men: When he and three of his men were trapped in a non-functional escape pod, the clones were very pessimistic about their chances to survive, but Plo kept their hope alive by continuously reasserting that their lives weren't meaningless.
    Plo: Sergeant, why are you so certain no one is coming?
    Sergeant Sinker: We're just clones, sir. We're meant to be expendable.
    Plo: Not to me.
  • The Gadfly: When Plo, Adi Gallia, and Commander Wolffe catch up with 3P0 and R2 aboard Grievous' flagship in "Nomad Droids", this ensues:
    C-3P0: Yes, Commander Wolffe. How have you been, sir? We have been on quite an adventure.
    Plo: Well, I'm certain Wolffe would love to hear about it.
    Wolffe: Uh, a-actually, sir...
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: "Ko-toh-ya" is a Kel'dor greeting that he and Ahsoka use towards each other.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Kel Dor have the general body structure of a human, but their facial structure is so different that it's noted to be unsettling to other humanoids in-universe, they have only four fingers, and oxygen is toxic to them.
  • I Am the Noun: Somewhat overlaps with Badass Boast.
    Boba Fett: I want justice.
    Plo Koon: We are justice.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Not So Similar: Serves as a foil to Anakin, via their relationships with Ahsoka. He is often used (most blatantly in "Padawan Lost" and the Wrong Jedi arc) to provide contrast between normal Jedi friendship and Anakin's struggles with Dark Side levels of attachment. Plo is not always in the right, but even his mistakes are consistently in the direction of a Light Side Jedi's mistakes rather than torturing prisoners for information.
  • Old Master: Somewhat downplayed, but he is the older mentor figure for Ahsoka. He actually shares this role for her with Obi-Wan himself.
  • Out of Focus: After getting much screentime in the early episodes, he fades more and more into the background as the Clone Wars series goes on.
  • Parental Substitute: He was the Jedi who found Ahsoka, and brought her to the Temple. They maintained a strong bond with each other that mirrors a father and daughter.
  • The Stoic: Most of the time, unless the situation gets very serious. If he ever does smile, it's hidden by his mask. This is best shown in "Lethal Trackdown", where he doesn't lose his cool when he has a gun pointed at the back of his head.
  • To Be Lawful or Good: Type two. According to Filoni, in the Wrong Jedi arc Plo actually sided with Ahsoka (one of three Council members to do so) in the Council's discussions and voting. He also looks visibly saddened by the whole mess more than once, and voices protest on-screen. However, the Jedi serve the Senate and must put duty over their personal feelings, so he participates in her arrest and (initially temporary but ultimately permanent) removal from the Order anyway.

    Even Piell 

Master Even Piell
"It takes more than they got to break me, young Skywalker."

Species: Lannik

Homeworld: Lannik

Portrayed by: Michaela Cottrell
Voiced by: Blair Bess (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars

"This is war, Sobeck. We are all prepared to die."

A Lannik member of the Jedi Council. He is a gruff and battle-hardened warrior who was entrusted with many important missions during the Clone Wars.
  • Badass in Distress: He was captured by Separatists and imprisoned in the Citadel.
  • Death In The Limelight: He dies at the end of the Citadel trilogy.
  • Determinator: Master Piell refuses to share the intel, even under heavy torture.
  • Eye Scream: He lost an eye way before the time of the series. A torture droid almost gouged out the other one.
  • Husky Russkie: Speaks with a Russian accent. He's pretty small, but still pretty tough.
  • I'm Dying, Please Take My MacGuffin: With his last breath, he entrusted his half of the Nexus Route coordinates to Ahsoka.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's roughly twice Yoda's height, which means he reaches to about waist-level for most characters. That doesn't stop him from being as badass as anyone else four times his size.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: Lanniks look similar to humans, but are rather short and have long, pointy ears, giving them a vague resemblance to Yoda's species.

Appears in: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Revenge of the Sith

"Wing commanders, form up. We're going in."

An Iktotchi Jedi Master on the council.
  • Ace Custom: He flies a green Jedi starfighter with white markings.
  • Ace Pilot: As seen in "Citadel Rescue", he's quite an accomplished pilot. According to the Expanded Universe, he's actually on par with Anakin and Plo Koon.
  • The Cameo: Mostly in Council meeting scenes.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: In The Clone Wars, he was amongst the four Council members waiting for the remains of Savage Opress' first victims to be brought back to the Temple, but had no speaking role until "Citadel Rescue".
  • Horned Humanoid: One of the traits of his species.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Mauve Shirt: He was the least developed out of the members of the Jedi Council who had a noticeable role in The Clone Wars.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's an Iktotchi, a species that has two horns hanging from fleshly tendrils on both sides of their temples.
  • The Worf Effect: Brought with Mace to confront Palpatine because he is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order, but he is killed within seconds of the duel against Sidious beginning.

    Depa Billaba 

Master Depa Billaba
"Caleb, we cannot win this battle… you must run. Go. I'll be right behind you."

Species: Human

Homeworld: Chalacta

Portrayed by: Dipika O'Neill Joti
Appears in: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | A New Dawn | Dark Disciple | Kanan

"You must not grow too attached, too fond, too in love with life as it is now. Those emotions are valuable and should not be suppressed, but you must learn to rule them, Padawan, lest they rule you."

A Jedi Master from Chalacta who served on the Jedi Council during the crisis on Naboo and prior to the Clone Wars. She is the former Padawan of fellow Jedi Council member Mace Windu. Near the end of the Clone Wars she took Caleb Dume as her apprentice, but was killed during Order 66 before she could complete his training.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Her Legends counterpart eventually fell to the Dark Side. In the rebooted canon, she never had a stint with the Dark Side and actually gets a Heroic Sacrifice instead.
  • Adaptational Species Change: In Legends, Chalactans were a Human Alien species with negligible differences from humans. The new continuity has retconned the species into simply being another human culture from Chalacta.
  • Ascended Extra: She was a minor character in the Legends continuity, but in the new continuity she served as the mentor to one of the most important characters in Rebels and comparatively got a greater amount of focus in the comics.
  • Don't Call Me "Sir": She requests to not be called "General".
  • Dramatic Irony: When Caleb tells her how happy he is, she tells him not to grow too fond of his life as it is now, because the universe is always changing. Soon afterwards, Order 66 happens, she's killed and Caleb is essentially orphaned while the Republic turns into the Empire.
  • General Failure: Struggles with viewing herself as one after Grievous killed ninety percent of her men and put her in a coma during the Battle of Haruun Kal.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: She was killed during Order 66, holding off clone troopers to buy enough time for Caleb to escape. Afterwards, Caleb changed his name to Kanan Jarrus and went into hiding.
  • In the Back: She falls during Order 66 after being shot in the back by Commander Grey after becoming distracted by Captain Styles and his men going after Caleb.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Lighter and Softer: Compared to her Legends incarnation. Depa disagrees with the rest of the Council about the Jedi's role in the war, but she doesn't fall to the Dark Side this time.
  • Master Swordswoman: As to be expected of a Jedi Master on the Council, Depa is highly skilled with a lightsaber. She is particularly skilled with Form III (Soresu) which she teaches to students at the Jedi Temple and specifically to Caleb.
  • The Mentor: To Kanan, and he reflects on her teachings from time to time even ten years after her death.
  • Mythology Gag: Her getting so injured she was in a coma for six months after the Battle of Haruun Kal is reminiscent of her Legends counterpart falling into a deep coma after a war on Haruun Kal in Shatterpoint.
  • Parental Abandonment: Her parents were killed by pirates who then took an infant Depa captive. Luckily, Mace rescued her and brought her to the Jedi Temple.
  • Reluctant Warrior: She believes that the Jedi made a mistake in taking on military titles.
  • Sanity Slippage: There is some fear that she is this among the Jedi, with some calling her "damaged", after she lost most of her company to General Grievous and spent six months in a coma. Billaba herself seems to agree that "damaged" is a crass but accurate assessment.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: After falling from the initial shot to her back during Order 66, several clone troopers gather around Depa and fire several more shots into her body to ensure that she is dead.

"To walk the path of the Jedi, one's spirit must be strong. That requires discipline."

A Thisspiasian Jedi Master on the Council during the blockade of Naboo and the Clone Wars.
  • Really 700 Years Old: At the time of the Blockade of Naboo, Rancisis was 174 years old.
  • Snake People: He is a Thisspiasian, a long-lived snakelike (yet rather hairy) species.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: Thisspiasians have two pairs of arms in Legends, with Rancisis keeping his second pair hidden under his robes.
  • The Strategist: Like his Legends counterpart, Rancisis is mentioned to be a "tactical mastermind".
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He has yet to receive an official canon fate.note 

    Yarael Poof 

Master Yarael Poof

Species: Quermian

Homeworld: Quermia

Portrayed by: CGI
Appears in: The Phantom Menace

A Quermian member of the Jedi Council during the invasion of Naboo.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: As a Quermian, he has a secondary brain in his chest cavity. He also has no spine despite being humanoid.
  • Bus Crash: According to All There in the Manual, he died in a mission after the events of The Phantom Menace.
  • Long Neck: He provides the page image for the trope. In fact, this is the out-of-universe reason for his absence in Attack of the Clones — Lucas didn't want anyone confusing him with the somewhat similar-looking Kaminoans.
  • Multi-Armed Multitasking: As a Quermian, he has two pairs of arms, one of them hidden underneath his robes.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: Said mission that ultimately was his last was that a rogue general was threatening to attack Alderaan, Corellia, or Coruscant. He was assigned to find him on Coruscant, and discovered he was going to set off a doomsday device in the central power generator. Teaming up with Jango and Zam, they went after this rogue general. Unforunately, before the bounty hunter duo killed the general, he severely injured Poof, but the Jedi Master managed to use his last moments to stop the device from going off.
  • Unfortunate Names: In British slang, "poof" is a derogatory term for "homosexual".

  • Ace Custom: His Jedi starfighter is painted red along the edges with some white in the middle, along with green markings which were the same as the emblems displayed on Kit's gauntlets.
  • Alien Hair: His tentacles.
  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Phil LaMarr.
  • Badass in Distress: He is briefly held captive during the battle of Mon Calamari and tortured alongside Anakin. He is freed when the Quarren turn on the Separatists.
  • Cat Smile: His normal facial expression.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Lair of Grievous", where Kit's former apprentice is introduced and he gets a chance to show off his skills against General Grievous.
  • Deadpan Snarker: A bit of one, particularly towards Anakin during the battle on Mon Calamari.
  • Dual Wielding: Used this technique rather epically in a duel with Grievous.
  • Fish People: Nautolans are an amphibian species, and Kit is noted to be most comfortable on water worlds like his native Glee Anselm.
  • Friend to All Children: His laid-back personality and sense of humor is why he's popular among the Younglings.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: A rare male version. Kit's shirtless scenes in Season 4 of The Clone Wars show him to be quite fit.
  • Grin of Audacity: Briefly flashes one during the battle in the Geonosis arena, after coming across a battle droid, with the head of a certain unlucky protocol droid attached to its body.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Nautolans like him are tentacle-headed, green-skinned, amphibian humanoids.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: Pulls this on Grievous, but substitutes an escape for the trope's dictated attack. Grievous' look when his surrender demand is (seemingly) accepted is priceless.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: His model in the The Clone Wars was designed with a much stronger, square jawline than he had in either Attack of the Clones or Revenge of the Sith, because neither live-action versions translated well in animation that he's a heroic character.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Little "No": When his ex-Padawan Nahdar Vebb is killed by Grievous.
  • Master Swordsman: Is considered one of the finest lightsaber duelists in the Jedi Order, managing to single-handedly defeat General Grievous in a lightsaber duel when multiple Jedi Knights and Masters (albeit, while they were exhausted) failed.
  • The Mentor: To Nahdar Vebb, although the war made it impossible for him to be there when he completed his trials and became a Jedi Knight. When he finally sees Nahdar again, he is disturbed by how aggressive the war has made his former apprentice.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In the animated series. He's the only male character to have a completely gratuitous, non-justifiable Shirtless Scene. The directors joked that it was something of a Twilight reference.
  • Perpetual Smiler: He always seems to have a smile on his face, even when idle. When he does actually smile, it's a very big cheesy grin.
  • Red Shirt: In the films, he does little but knock over C3-PO and get killed by the Emperor.
  • Shirtless Scene: Let's just say there was a good reason all of Kit's fangirls looked forward to Season 4.
  • The Worf Effect: Brought with Mace to confront Palpatine because he is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order, but he is killed very quickly.

"Whoever is seeing this... it's up to you now. Don't let our deaths have been in vain. Don't let this be the end of the Jedi."

A female Togruta Jedi Master and council member. During the Clone Wars, she oversees the training and cloning facilities on Kamino.
  • Action Girl: She is a very capable warrior, and her skills made her a good choice to oversee the training of new clone troopers and defend Kamino from assault.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: While in the movies she's never shown close enough to be noticeable, her eyes were black. In The Clone Wars, her eyes are violet colored.
  • Alien Hair: Her horns and head-tails.
  • The Cameo: Mostly in Jedi Council meeting scenes. Also, a holocron displays her image in the main Star Wars comic.
  • Clones Are People, Too: In her conversation with Lama Su about the Domino Squad, she argued that they can't just cast off the Dominos since they're living beings.
  • Face Death with Dignity: She chose not to fight when the Jedi Temple was assaulted, opting instead to record some teachings in a Holocron for a future Jedi to use. She calmly meditated while waiting for her death at Darth Vader's hands.
  • Fling a Light into the Future: During the assault on the Jedi Temple she records a message on a holocron begging for whoever finds it to not let the Jedi die out from the Empire's purge. This holocron ends up in the hands of Grakkus the Hutt, whose collection of Jedi artifacts end up seized by the Empire.
  • A Mother to Her Men: In addition to her mentality mentioned above, she also gave some warm-hearted advice to Fives and Echo. She also stood up for Fives when Nala Se threatened to have him decommissioned for removing his own "inhibitor" chip.
  • Horned Humanoid: Her montrals are hollow horns.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: During Yoda's vision in "Voices", he sees several Jedi die during the events of Revenge of the Sith, including Shaak Ti being impaled from behind by Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber. According to the Galactic Atlas, this vision came true during Anakin's assault on the Temple, as he stabs Shaak Ti in the back while she is meditating in her quarters. This canonized a deleted scene from Revenge of the Sith which was never completed.note 
  • Lady of War: In her one action scene, she took out a bunch of Aqua Droids very gracefully.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Out of Focus: She's the only member of the Jedi Council who had a slightly bigger role than occasional cameos who didn't get a Day in the Limelight episode during The Clone Wars series.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: As the general in charge of overseeing clone training, she's essentially a happy medium between El-Les and Bric, caring about the trainees as individuals and wanting them to succeed, but also understanding the need for a sink or swim mentality.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: She's a Togruta, a species that has two hollow horns and three head-tails.
  • Unexplained Accent: She sounds vaguely Latina or somewhere close to that, due to her voice actress. (On the other hand, her actress in the films is Israeli.)

    Grievous: Murderer? Is it murder to rid the galaxy of you Jedi filth?!
  • Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Rewrite: In a sourcebook for Attack of the Clones, he was said to have been killed during the Battle of Geonosis. He was rewritten to have survived that battle for The Clone Wars.

  • Laser Blade: Wields a green-bladed lightsaber.

Master Sifo-Dyas

Species: Human

Homeworld: Cassandran Worlds

Voiced by: Paul Nakauchi (The Clone Wars)
Appears in: Attack of the Clonesnote  | The Clone Wars

"Prior to the blockade of Naboo, Sifo-Dyas sat on this Council until we judged his ideas to be too extreme."
Mace Windu

A former member of the Jedi Council. He advocated for the creation of an army for the Republic when he foresaw the coming war with the Trade Federation, but the Jedi Council opposed this and removed him from his position. Nonetheless, Sifo-Dyas went to the remote planet of Kamino to request the creation of a clone army under the guise of representing a request of the Galactic Senate.
  • Ascended Extra: In the final arc of The Clone Wars, we actually see what he looks like and learn more about him.
  • The Ghost: Briefly, in Attack of the Clones — he didn't make an appearance until the last arc of The Clone Wars.
  • Louis Cypher: Subverted. Some had speculated that the name Sifo-Dyas was a cover name for Darth Sidious, but it was later confirmed that they were two separate people.
  • Laser Blade: Wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Meaningful Name: Not his own, but the name of his home region, the Cassandran Worlds, are taken from the danger-seeing prophetess of Greek mythology who was cursed to never be believed.
  • Military Coup: Darth Tyranus wanted to ensure that the Sith would have influence over the clone army, which would serve as the reason for Sifo-Dyas' death.
  • Posthumous Character: In the Prequel Trilogy. The circumstances of his death are revealed in The Clone Wars.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The apparition that Palpatine created had this trait, which was how Yoda was able to tell he was an imposter.
  • Samurai Ponytail: He's space Asian, and sports a genuine chonmage hairstyle.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: In spite of dying a decade before the events of Attack of the Clones, he is directly responsible for the creation of the clone army.
  • Unwitting Instigator of Doom: To the Jedi Order, as it would turn out. He only became this due to Palpatine taking interest in the clone army.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Palpatine, par the course. Sifo-Dyas wanted the Republic to create a standing army, and that's just what Palpatine established.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: From the Jedi Council's point of view, which is what got him demoted. Granted, he's not necessarily wrong for thinking there should be an army.
