    Jedi Council 

In general

  • Badass: They are some of the most powerful individuals in the Galaxy.
  • Broken Pedestal:
    • Part of the reason Barriss fell to the Dark Side, was that she felt the Council came to believe only in violence.
    • Their treatment of Ahsoka during her Frameup ends up shattering her faith in them, prompting her to refuse their offer to return to the Order.
  • Combat Clairvoyance: Jedi stock power; this is how they can deflect blaster fire with their lightsabers.
  • Four-Star Badass: They were all promoted/forced to take on the role of generals in the Grand Army of the Republic.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Over the course of the series, their involvement in the war increasingly alienates them from the public.
  • Laser Blade
  • Master Swordsman: Some of them are greatest lightsaber duelists of the Galaxy.
  • Morton's Fork:
    • The Order's entire involvement in the war: they either participate to protect the Republic and its citizens as per their duty, risking an abandoment of their morals, or hold on to their morals and stay out of the war while Dooku enslaves the galaxy.
    • This came to its head during the Season 5 finale arc, where they were forced to choose between defending Ahsoka as one of their own or give her up to the Republic courts to maintain their standing with the Senate. They opted for the later, though not without some internal dissent.
  • Not-So-Omniscient Council of Bickering: The ensemble of the most powerful, most knowledgeable and wisest beings in the Galaxy...yet they continue making very questionable decisions, such as:
    • Lying to the emotionally unstable Anakin, that his father figure died.
    • Training and backing guerrila-esque freedom-fighters to overthrow a legitimate government.
    • Abandoning one of their own, based upon circumstantial evidence that she committed treason because the Senate put some pressure on them in the matter.
    • Doubting Yoda's sanity and putting him under constant surveillance, when he claimed that he had contacted the dead, simply because they were that convinced it's impossible to maintain their identity beyond death.
  • Psychic Powers: The common ones include Empathy, Jedi Mind Trick, Clairvoyance and Mind over Matter. However during the time of the series, their precognitive powers are almost always clouded by The Dark Side.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: The Order, particularly the Council, is often called out by other characters for their dubious actions:
    • In the Deception arc, they fake Obi-Wan's death so he could thwart Dooku's plan to kidnap Palpatine from within. When Anakin finds out that they deliberately lied to him so his reaction would sell Obi-Wan's death, he calls them out on it.
    • Three instances just in the season 5 finale:
      • Ventress delivers an indirect one through Anakin, by comparing how the Council abandoned and effectively betrayed Ahsoka to how Dooku did the same to her. Anakin is outright horrified when he realizes she's right.
      • Barriss justifies her attack on the Order as a stand against the growing corruption of its principles, claiming that they've become the very menace they are supposed to be fighting. She's right, too, even if none of them realize why.
      • While Ahsoka doesn't call them out on it directly after she's been cleared of the charges, her expression speaks volumes of her opinion when the same men praise her strength and resilience who have given her up to the Senate Court as a traitor not long before.

Yoda

"Long is the war. Only by surviving it do you prevail."
Voiced by: Tom Kane

The ancient, but still very powerful and wise leader of the Jedi Order.

  • Ambadassador: He went on a diplomatic mission in "Ambush", during which he was forced to take on an entire battalion of droids with only three clones to help him.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He is the de facto leader of the Jedi Order and the most powerful Jedi of his time.
  • Badass: The biggest one in a show full of them. "Size matters not!", after all.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Badass Grandpa: At the age of 800, he's more than a match to an entire battalion of droids, and is capable of forcing Ventress to retreat with two casual gestures of his hand.
  • Brown Eyes
  • Big Good: As the leader of the Jedi Order, he's the main organizer of the defense of the Republic.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Cool Starship: His Jedi starfighter, naturally. However, unlike other Jedi, his fighter seems to be made specifically to accommodate his size.
  • Enemy Without: One of his trials in "Destiny" involves him facing his own inner darkness, which takes the form of a shadowy, demonic version of himself with Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  • Expressive Ears: His mood can be easily read from them.
  • A Father to His Men: He encourages the clones to develop self identity.
  • Miniature Senior Citizen: He's 900 years old, and barely reaches to knee level of most characters. Justified, since he's an alien.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: While he doesn't utter the phrase, his expression just screams that he's blaming himself when Ahsoka refuses to return to the Order, which is revisited in "Destiny". In the same scene, he shown to react this way whenever he feels he's steered the Jedi wrong.
  • Noodle Incident: According to Huyang, how he got the crystal for his lightsaber is a very interesting story.
  • Old Master: A Master Swordsman, one of the two strongest Force-users, and with the wisdom of over eight centuries behind him. He wasn't accidentally the former Trope Namer.
  • One-Man Army: He takes down Ventress's droid army on Rugosa almost singlehandedly.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He doesn't even reach up to the knees of most characters, yet he's one of the strongest characters not just in the series, but in the entire franchise.
  • Really 800 Years Old
  • Strange Syntax Speaker: Object-Subject word order he uses.
  • This Cannot Be!: Yoda uttered this phrase, when Qui-Gon contacted him, and proved his existence by telekinetically levitating Yoda and everything moveable in Yoda's quarters.
  • Trickster Mentor: Shows this in "The Gathering". When the younglings are warned that the ice door to the crystal cave will seal behind them at day's end, they all assume it will take another 19 days (how long it takes for the sun to rise on Ilum) to escape. At the end, Petro crashes through the ice to escape. When called on it, Yoda points out that the door is just ice and not that difficult to break if you're determined. They were only trapped by their own fears.
  • The Wonka: The clones under his command can't figure out what he says half the time; one of them even admitted that "there's no figuring a Jedi Master", but they follow his lead because they know there's a method to his madness.

Mace Windu

"One problem always seems to replace another."
Voiced by: T.C. Carson in the TV-series, Samuel L. Jackson in The Movie

The second-most powerful member of the Jedi Council after Yoda.

  • Authority Equals Asskicking
  • Badass
  • Badass Baritone
  • Bald of Awesome
  • Bald Black Leader Guy: While technically outranked by Yoda, Mace is the most assertive and dominant personality in the Council, with Yoda seemingly content to let Mace run the show.
  • Big Good: Shares the role with Yoda for the Jedi Order.
  • The Comically Serious: When teamed up with Jar Jar Binks during "The Disapppeared", his serious demeanor is there to offset Jar Jar's wackiness.
  • Deadpan Snarker: At times.
    Ahsoka: Guard duty?! For how long?
    Mace: Longer now.
  • Good Is Not Soft: He's not someone you want to face on the battlefield.
  • Implacable Man: As displayed in "Liberty on Ryloth".
  • Number Two: He's the second-in-command of the Jedi Order to Yoda.
  • One-Man Army: Mace is on par with Yoda in his ability to devastate Separatist infantry, as seen in the Ryloth arc.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He's the second most powerful Jedi in the series, and his lightsaber is purple. He even provides the page image for it.
  • Scary Black Man: His implacable nature and fierce disposition are such that, in the Ryloth arc, 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. In the show, he used only once, to break the windshield of broken-down Republic walker and rescue its unconscious driver.
  • The Stoic: Throughout the five seasons of the show, he was shown smiling once.

Plo Koon

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

A member of the Council, Plo Koon is an old friend and parent figure for Ahsoka Tano.

  • Ace Pilot: He was shown to be a pilot with skills rivaling Anakin's.
  • Affectionate Nickname: He often calls Ahsoka "Little 'Soka".
  • Ascended Extra: He was a back-ground character in the movies. In the series he has the most screen-time of all Council members, except for Obi-Wan, who's one of the deuteragonists.
  • Author Appeal: He is Dave Filoni's favorite character.
  • Badass: When he's trapped in space in a non-functional escape-pod, which is about to be dismantled by droids, what does he do? Leaves the pod, protected only by his hide and mask, and deals with the droids personally.
  • Badass Baritone
  • Badass Long Robe: Dons an exceptionally badass one in "Lethal Trackdown".
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Apparently Kel'dors like Plo Koon can survive in space for a short time, with only their breathing masks protecting them.
  • 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 helmet 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.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Kel'dors 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.
  • Genre Savvy: In "Lethal Trackdown", he very well knew he was walking into a trap when he landed on Florrum to meet with Aurra Sing and Boba Fett.
  • Gratuitous Foreign Language: "Ko-toh-ya" is a Kel'dor greeting that he and Ahsoka use towards each other.
  • The Obi-Wan: Somewhat downplayed, but he is the older mentor figure for Ahsoka. He actually shares this role for her with Obi-Wan himself.
  • Troll: When Plo, Gallia, and Commander Wolfe 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.
    Wolffe: Uh, a-actually, sir...
  • Parental Substitute: He was the Jedi who found Ahsoka, and brought her to the Temple. They maintained a strong bond with eachother.
  • 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 "Lethal Trackdown", where he doesn't lose his cool when he has a gun pointed at the back of his head.

Ki Adi Mundi

Voiced by: Brian George

  • Agent Scully: He was the most vocal in denying the possibility of Yoda's claim about making contact with the dead.
  • Badass
  • Badass Beard
  • Badass Grandpa: His age doesn't seem to hamper him too much in battle.
  • 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 Mundi 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.
  • Kill It with Fire: Once ordered his troops to use flamethrowers against the Geonosians.
  • My Brain Is Big: The "generic alien trait" variant, as while he has quite a large cranium, he's not hinted to posses super-intelligence.
  • 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 Mundi 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 dissapointed* "Oh."
    Obi-Wan: *Reassuringly* "That is a gift Anakin rarely bestows, I assure you."
  • Properly Paranoid:
    • He was the only member of the Council to loudly admit that Dooku was not the Big Bad as they had 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.
  • Rubber Forehead Alien: He's a Cerean, a species with very large, elongated cranium.

Kit Fisto

"Jedi have great power. They should refrain from using it."
Voiced by: Phil LaMarr

  • Alien Hair: His tentacles.
  • Badass: Takes on Grievous and his four Magnaguards, and escapes unharmed, and even cut off one of the cyborg's hands. That's more that what Obi-Wan ever managed against the general during the series.
  • Badass Baritone
  • Cat Grin
  • Dual Wielding: Used this technique rather epically in a duel with Grievous.
  • Green-Skinned Space Hunk
  • Fish People: Nautolans are an amphibian species.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Nautolans like him are tentacle-headed, green-skinned, amphibian humanoids.
  • Little "No": When his ex-Padawan Nahdar Vebb is killed by Grievous.
  • Mr. Fanservice: He's the only male character in the series 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.
  • Shirtless Scene: Let's just say there was a good reason all of Kit's fangirls looked forward to Season 4.

Even Piell

"This is war, Sobeck. We are all prepared to die."
Voiced by: Blair Bess

Adi Gallia

Voiced by: Angelique Perrin

Shaak Ti

Voiced by: Tasia Valenza

A female Togruta Jedi Master who oversees the training and cloning facilities on Kamino.

  • Action Girl
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: While in the movies she's never shown close enough to be noticeable, her eyes were black. In the series her eyes are violet colored.
  • Alien Hair: Her horns and head-tails.
  • The Cameo: Mostly in Jedi Council meeting scenes.
  • 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.
  • Horned Humanoid: Her montrals are hollow horns.
  • 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.
  • Lady of War: In her one action scene, she took out a bunch of Aquadroids very gracefully.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Eeth Koth

Voiced by: Chris Edgerly

  • Badass in Distress: In his debut episode, he was captured by Grievous, although he put up a good fight against him and his Magnaguards.
  • Death In The Limelight: Averted. He was originally killed in the script of his debut episode, but Dave Filoni decided to spare him for future use.
  • Electric Torture: He was subjected to it repeatedly while he was held captive by Grievous.
  • Facial Markings
  • Horned Humanoid: He is a Zabrak, after all.
  • 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 this series.
  • Rubber Forehead Alien: He's a Zabrak, a species that has several cranial horns.

Saesee Tiin

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker

  • 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: He was amongst the four Council members waiting for the remains of Savage Opress's first victims to be brought back to the Temple, but had no speaking role until "Citadel Rescue".
  • Horned Humanoid
  • Rubber Forehead Alien: He's an Iktotchi, a species that has two horns hanging from fleshly tendrils on both sides of their temples.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

    Jedi Knights 

In general:

Luminara Unduli

"We suffer a great many losses in these battles..."
Voiced by: Olivia d'Abo

  • Action Girl
  • Badass in Distress: In "Legacy of Terror", where she was captured by Geonosian zombies and needed to be saved by Anakin and Obi-Wan.
  • Badass Teacher: To Barriss.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: In "Cloak of Darkness" Luminara told Ventress, that she recognised Count Dooku's teachings in Ventress' fighting-style, which the assasin took as a compliment. Then Luminara added that she found Ventress' version "unrefined, amaturish, sloppy".
  • Eye Scream: During her duel with Ventress in "Cloak of Darkness", she got some high-pressure steam blown in her eye, visibly turning it red for a short time.
  • Facial Markings: She has a set of cultural tattoos on her chin.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe
  • Lady of War: Her fighting style is rather gracious. The British accent also helps in this respect.
  • The Stoic
  • You Fight Like a Cow: She belittled Ventress's fighting style as an "unrefined, amateurish, sloppy" imitation of Count Dooku's, which apparently was a Berserk Button for the Dark Jedi.

Aayla Secura

"Sometimes it takes courage to stick to one's beliefs, young Padawan."
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Qui-Gon Jinn

"I am here because you are here."
Voiced by: Liam Neeson

Obi-Wan's former master, who died at the hands of Darth Maul in The Phantom Menace.

  • Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence: He learnt how to retain his identity upon death.
  • Badass Baritone: He is voiced by Liam Neeson.
  • Badass Beard
  • Dead Person Conversation: He appears in front of both Obi-Wan and Anakin on Mortis, and is able to speak to Yoda, despite being dead for over a decade.
  • Energy Being: Because his training wasn't complete, he can't manifest himself as a spirit, but on a planet sufficiently strong in the Force, he can appear as a "flock of light".
  • Looks Like Jesus: Beard? Check. Long hair? Check. Appearing before his disciples despite being dead? Check.
  • Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: His first appearance as a spirit adviser on Mortis was ambiguous enough that Obi-Wan wrote it off as a hallucination of some sort. His second appearance in the sixth season erases that ambiguity.
  • The Mentor: He becomes the one who teaches Yoda the way of retaining one's identity upon death, and manifesting as a Force-Ghost.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Despite his inablility to manifest himself under normal circumstances, he was able to appear in front of Obi-Wan and Anakin on Mortis, most likely because the planet was such a strong conduit of the Force.
  • Spirit Advisor: To Obi-Wan and Anakin during the Mortis arc.

Pong Krell

"I will not be undermined by creatures bred in some laboratory!"
Voiced by: Dave Fennoy

A General Ripper-type Besalisk Jedi Master, Krell took over leading the 501st from Anakin during the Battle of Umbara. As the battle progressed, his reckless tactics lead to ever escalating conflicts between him and the clones under his command.

  • Arc Villain: The main antagonist of the Umbara-arc, the whole time he's been secretly working to undermine the Republic's effort to capture the planet.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: An accurate summary of his strategy.
  • Ax-Crazy: It really shows once he reveals his true colors, taking pleasure in killing many Clones up close and personal, both for helping the Separatists and for his own sadistic amusement.
  • Badass: Jerkassery aside, when he actually decides to get into the action Krell is a formidable warrior.
  • Badass Baritone
  • Badass Beard
  • Bastard Understudy: He wanted to become Dooku's apprentice once he defected to the Separatists. Stopping the Republic from capturing Umbara would've been his ticket.
  • Beard of Evil
  • Control Freak: He has no tolerance for having his orders disobeyed or defied.
  • Dual Wielding: With double-bladed lightsabers.
  • Evil All Along: Having foreseen the Republic's eventual collapse, he intended to defect to the Sith. In hindsight, all of his idiot strategies made sense.
  • Evil Is Hammy: When Krell reveals his true loyalties, he does it with a big, hammy speech.
  • Evil Sounds Deep
  • Expendable Clone: He doesn't care the least about the casulties his "right in the middle of it" tactics cause.
  • Face-Heel Turn: He has fallen to the Dark Side sometime prior to his introduction, when he foresaw the fall of the Republic.
  • Fantastic Racism: He treats clones with nothing but utter contempt.
  • For the Evulz: He manipulated his clones into being slaughtered and into killing their own comrades because he could. Even if it was part of his plan to defect to the Sith, he obviously enjoyed the clones' deaths.
  • General Failure: The way he commands, you'd think he's trying to lose. He was.
  • Genius Bruiser: The genius part only comes into play, when he's true plans are revealed, and once he gets into the action he tears things up.
  • Hoist Hero Over Head: He does this to a clone trooper after revealing his true colors, even breaking his spine on his knee in a manner similar to Bane.
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: He fights for who he believes will win. When he foresaw the fall of the Jedi, he decided to betray the Republic.
  • Informed Ability: Said to be a highly successful military strategist, but mostly just gives orders that seem intended to get as many clones killed as possible. Not surprisingly, he's also stated to have the record for highest clone casualty rate. It's later revealed that Krell truly is a brilliant strategist: all of his battle plans were intended to kill as many clones as possible.
  • Jerkass: The nicest way to describe him. He's later revealed to be far worse.
  • Lack of Empathy: Even before he's revealed to have been Evil All Along and to have fallen to the Dark Side, he takes the "no personal attachments" part of the Jedi code way too far and doesn't even focus on the part about being compassionate, treating the Clones serving under him as expendable.
  • Light Is Not Good: Before The Reveal, you could easily assume he's just a Jedi that puts more emphasis on "no personal attachments" and a lot less on being compassionate.
    • Dark Is Evil: After the reveal, it's confirmed that he has fallen to the Dark Side.
  • Karmic Death: At the hands of Dogma, the one clone who was utterly loyal to him out of duty.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Dogma shoots Krell right in the middle of his Hannibal Lecture to Rex.
  • Killed Off for Real
  • Large Ham: From the start. Once Krell reveals himself to be a traitor, he revels in delivering almost every line with as much malice and smug superiority as he can with a few Evil Laughs thrown in for good measure.
  • Lightning Bruiser:
  • Manipulative Bastard: Used Rex to secure the loyalty of the troopers in the 501st, despite the resitance his obviously flawed strategies met and tricked two clone battallions into fighting eacthother. All of this to cripple the Republic offensive on Umbara, which he intended to use as a ticket to become Dooku's apprentice.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has four-arms, and he puts them to good use, while wielding two dual-bladed lightsabers.
  • The Neidermeyer: Even before he was revealed to have been Evil All Along, the clones hated him.
  • One-Man Army: He managed to cut through dozens of clone troopers without much difficulty.
  • Slasher Smile: He sports one once he reveals his true colors.
  • Smug Snake
  • The Sociopath
  • Super Window Jump: Does one out of the control tower when the clones begin their attempt to capture him.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: They're indicative of his alien nature andhis status as a darksider.
  • Token Jerk Teammate: He treats his clone troopers worse than any Jedi so far. Revealed to indeed be evil.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Weird Beard

Tera Sinube

"The value of moving slowly is that one can always clearly see the way ahead."
Voiced by: Greg Baldwin

An elderly Cosian Jedi that instead of fighting in the war, turns his efforts to studying Coruscant's criminal underworld and training future generations of Jedi.

  • Badass
  • Badass Grandpa: He's very old, but that doesn't stop him from easily disarming a lightsaber swinging bounty hunter.
  • Badass Teacher: He drew his lightsaber and stood protectively in front of the Younglings he had been training, during Anakin's duel with the traitorous Barris Offee.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He sounds like a senile fool until that precise moment he cracks the entire mystery on his own.
  • The Cameo: He occasionally shows up in the background. Two of his most famous ones showed him training the Younglings from the Young Jedi arc.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Eccentric Mentor
  • Expy: His trolling Bunny-Ears Lawyer attitude, and his way of giving useful advice to a hot-headed youngster, makes him very similar to Iroh.
  • Great Detective: In his youth, now he's a Retired Badass.
  • Let's Get Dangerous: He spends most of the episode being a Great Detective...that is, until the criminal pulls out a lightsaber and...See the picture.
  • Lightsaber Cane
  • The Profiler
  • Retired Badass
  • Senior Sleep Cycle: His introduction scene shows him having fallen asleep in the middle of some research in the Archives. Subverted in that he is never seen falling asleep while on the job, and Jedi generally tend to have more energy in them than non-Force users even when they reach old age.

Jocasta Nu

Voiced by: Flo Di Re

A former Jedi Council member who now serves as the librarian for the Jedi Archives.

  • Action Girl: Mostly an informed trait, but given that she's a retired member of the Jedi Council, it's safe to assume it's true. When Cad Bane's Clawdite accomplice caught Jocasta by surprise and took her form, she was easily defeated by Ahsoka, who commented that she had Jocasta's form, but not her abilities.
  • Badass Bookworm: She retired from active service to take care of the Jedi Archives.
  • Cool Old Lady
  • Granny Classic: Sort of. She's not doing any of the usual stuff associated with this trope, but she does act like one towards Ahsoka.
  • Never Mess with Granny
  • Retired Badass: Used to be a member of the Jedi Council.

Quinlan Vos

Voiced by: Al Rodrigo

  • Badass
  • Barbarian Longhair: He has a rather long and a bit unkept-looking rasta-like hairdo, he walked into the Hutt Council's HQ and accused them of breaking Ziro out of prison, and as Obi-Wan put it "hasn't mastered the concept of knocking." He also happens to be a top-tier badass Jedi.
  • Canon Immigrant: A rather interesting one. He was a nameless background character in The Phantom Menace, with about five seconds of screen-time, and was not intended to be Jedi. However the EU picked him up, and Lucas liked the comics involving Vos so much, that he planned on adding him to Revenge of the Sith, but the scene was ultimately cut. He finally appeared in an episode of Season 3, integrating him into the series canon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Resulted in some hilarious Snark-to-Snark Combat when he teamed up with Obi-Wan.
  • Dynamic Entry: Quinlan instead of knocking or using his Psychic Powers to open the lock, entered Mama the Hutt's lair by cutting an "X" in the door with his lightsaber and kicking the pieces in.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Not an actual appearance, but Aayla mentioned him in "Jedi Crash". To make even more subtle, she refered to him not by the name, just as her Master.
  • Facial Markings
  • Human Alien: According to the Expanded Universe, he is a Kiffar, a species that resemble humans with Facial Markings and possess natural psychometry abilities.
  • Lighter and Softer: His portrayal in this series compared to what he usually was like in the EU. The writers for this series decided to go back to his personality from his earlier comic appearances instead of using his darker characterization (which had him constantly dealing with his own inner darkness) from the early-to-mid 2000's Republic comics.
  • Psychometry: He has the ability to read the memories of any inanimate object he touches, and used it to confirm that Ziro had been in the Hutt's club not long before their arrival.

Ima-Gun Di

"For the Republic! For the Twi'leks!"
Voiced by: Robin Atkin Downes

A Nikto Jedi general who led the initial liberation force to free Ryloth before being killed during the battle.

Ky Narec

Voiced by: Corey Burton
"You are strong in the Force, little one."

The Jedi Master and father figure of Asajj Ventress.

  • Canon Immigrant: He first appeared in a comicbook, and the episode "Nightsisters" integrated him into the series' canon.
  • Death by Origin Story: He was killed during a battle on Rattatak, his death marking Ventress' Start of Darkness.
  • Died in Your Arms Tonight: He died in Ventress' arms.
  • Facial Markings: He had small tattoos on his face.
  • In the Back: He was shot by a sniper while fighting pirates.
  • Same Story, Different Names: His role is very similar to Qui-Gon Jinn's role in The Phantom Menace: They both rescued a slave child on a remote Crapsack World, who was very powerful in the Force, took, or attempted to take them as their apprentices, without the Council's approval and despite it's disapproval respectively, they both died before they could finish the training of the children, and both apprentices eventually fell to the Dark Side.
  • The Obi-Wan: He's the deceased older mentor of Ventress.
  • Parental Substitute: He took in Ventress -who just lost the only "family" she had her slaver master- as his apprentice, and raised her since she was a small child.
  • Posthumous Character

Bolla Ropal

Voiced by: Dee Bradley Baker
"You will...never...get me to...unlock the...holocron."

A Rodian Jedi Master, who was tasked with protecting the Kyber Crystal, which contained the list of every known Force-sensitive child too young to be taken in by the Jedi.

  • Determinator: He chose to be tortured to death rather than open the Holocron for Bane.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He appeared on a profile-photo in "Holocron Heist".
  • Electric Torture: Cad Bane used it on him to get him to open the Holocron. When he refused, Bane tortured him to death.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: Even the battle droids seemed to have been shaken by how cruel his death was. Also invoked by the writers; they intended Ropal's death to be exceptionally brutal to further emphasize Bane's status as a Knight of Cerebus.
  • Rubber Forehead Alien: He was a Rodian.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He was only needed to remind everyone how dangerous and nasty Cad Bane is.
  • Secret Keeper: He was the keeper of the Kyber crystal, which contains the names and locations of every Force-sensitive child too young to be taken in by the Jedi.

Nahdar Vebb

Voiced by: Tom Kenny
"But in this war, strength prevails. The rules have changed."

Kit Fisto's former Padawan, Nahdar was a Mol Calamari Jedi Knight.

  • A Father to His Men: Cares greatly for the clones under his command, and is very upset when they're killed.
  • Badass: Cuts his way through four of Grievous' Magna-Guards in seconds.
  • Fish People: He's a Mon Calamari.
  • Killed Off for Real: By General Grievous.
  • Mauve Shirt: Gets just enough time to establish himself as sympathetic before Grievous offs him.
  • Never Bring a Knife to a Gun Fight: When dueling Grievous, the general Blade Locks his lightsaber, then shoots him with a blaster held in one of his other hands.
  • Revenge: Wants this for all those killed by Grievous.
  • Suicidal Overconfidence: Possibly. Charges off to face Grievous, a known Jedi killer, by himself, against the advice of his former master, Kit Fisto. He doesn't live to make the same mistake again.

Barriss Offee

"If you need to, you'll do what must be done. I know it."
Voiced by: Meredith Salenger

Barriss was the apprentice of Luminara Unduli since before the war had started. Her personality is not unlike her Master's, but seems to be a bit more easy-going. During the Second Battle of Geonosis, she led Ahsoka and herself through the catacombs of Poggle the Lesser main droid-factory, and together they destoyed the facility, becoming close friends along the way. However, during the course of the war, she became embittered, and eventually fell to the Dark Side.

  • Action Girl/Dark Action Girl: Anyone who can successfully sneak up on Ventress, curb-stomp Ahsoka, and even briefly hold her own against an enraged Anakin deserves the title.
  • Adaptational Villainy: In the Expanded Universe she remained loyal to the Jedi, and was killed during Order 66. This has been rewritten in the series, with the revelation that she had fallen to the Dark Side.
  • Anti-Villain: Her motivations in the Sabotage arc are somewhat justified, but her actions are just unforgivable.
  • Arc Villain: She's revealed to be the mastermind behind the bombing of the Temple in the Sabotage arc.
  • Badass Adorable
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She pretended to still be Ahsoka's friend while framing her for terrorism and murder she herself committed.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Allowing Ventress to live after stealing her lightsabers. Just killing Ventress would have silenced the last possible witness to Ahsoka's innocence. Befitting the trope, failing to eliminate Ventress led directly to Barriss' downfall.
  • Can't Catch Up: To Anakin. She first met Anakin when he was a Padawan. She still is one while he has since become a Knight and gained his own Padawan.
  • Captain Obvious Reveal: Most of the viewers correctly guessed that she was the traitor who blew up the Temple hangar and framed Ahsoka.
  • The Chessmaster: She was the mastermind behind the bombing of the Temple. First she convinced Letta to feed explosive nanodroids to her husband, who worked in the Temple, using him as the bomb. When evidence led back to Letta (purely by chance), she had arranged for Letta to ask Ahsoka for help, at which point Barriss force-choked her while Ahsoka was in the room to pin suspicion on her. Then she arranged for Ahsoka's escape, knowing that she was looking for proof of her innocence. Barriss pretended to provide that proof in order to frame Ahsoka for the bombing as well, in the process stealing Ventress' lightsabers and Cool Helmet to deflect the suspicions of anyone who might believe Ahsoka's story. Were it not for the fact that Anakin decided to hear Ventress out, her plan would have worked perfectly.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She ambushed Ventress by hurling a heavy piece of metal at her before knocking her out with a pipe. Later she therw heavy barrels at Ahsoka during their duel, and detonated containers of high pressured gas in her face.
  • Commanding Coolness: As with every other Padawan, she was given the rank of Jedi Commander when the war started.
  • Crazy-Prepared: She memorized all two-hundred junctions of a Geonosian hive in advance for a stealth infiltration.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: First she successfully ambushed Ventress, then easily beat Ahsoka up. However she found herself on the receiving end of one when she had to face Anakin.
  • Cute and Psycho: She's soft spoken, well-mannered and overall one of the nicest characters in the show... then she turned out to be a mass murderer-terrorist and a highly capable Chessmaster-Manipulative Bastard of her own right.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She shows a few hints of this.
    Barriss: Whatever you're doing, I hope it works, because I'd sure rather have died fighting up there than starve to death down here.
    Barriss: That's a comforting thought. Thanks.
  • Distressed Damsel: Ahsoka had to save Barriss's life... when Barriss was overtaken by a Geonosian zombie-worm and trying to kill her.
  • Dual Wielding: With Ventress' lightsabers.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Ahsoka's reaction when Anakin revealed her betrayal is simply and silently asking her if it was true.
  • Evil Former Friend: Ahsoka considered her a friend.
  • Evil Genius: Master-minded a plot, that completely fooled and cornered the Jedi Council.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Despite how extreme her actions were in the Sabotage arc, she has a very good point about the increasing militarization of the Jedi Order.
  • Face-Heel Turn: She becomes disillusioned with the Jedi Order, believing that they've become a corrupt shadow of their former self. This prompts her to act against them.
  • Facial Markings: She has a set of cultural tattoos across her nose.
  • Fallen Hero
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe
  • Hypocrite: She was disgusted by how the Jedi have become warmongers and, as she put it, "an army fighting for the dark side". How did she fight against this? With terrorism, deception and betrayal, the exact methods the dark side favors. She also claimed every Jedi should be tried, yet she framed Ahsoka specifically to avoid being caught. She at least seems to acknowledge it when she says that she kept Ventress' lightsabers because she felt that they suited her. Red lightsabers are usually seen as the signs of a darksider.
  • In the Hood
  • Knight Templar: Her reasoning against the Jedi's involvement in the war is sound and just, but resorting to terrorism and deception to get her point through made her even worse, than what she claimed to have been fighting against.
  • Laser Blade
  • Lady of War: Her fighting style is rather graceful, like her teacher's.
  • Manipulative Bitch: While pretending to be helping Ahsoka, she manipulated her moves to incrimate her even more.
  • Motive Rant: Delivers one to a courtroom full of people after her crimes are uncovered.
  • Nice Girl: She helped Ashoka when no else would would and was understanding about it. It was a facade.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Ahsoka's red. She even has the eye and lightsaber colors to match.
  • Rewrite: Previously established canon had Barriss remaining with the Jedi until the end of the war, ultimately dying on Felucia during Order 66.
  • Tattooed Crook
  • Teen Genius: To memorize two-hundred junctions of a literal bughive requires one to be this.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The girly girl to Ahsoka's tomboy.
  • The Unfettered: Manipulating innocent civilians, killing innocent people and her own friends alike, framing Ahsoka and nearly getting her killed... Barriss proved that nothing was beyond her in her attempt to end the growing corruption of the Jedi.
  • Ungrateful Bitch: Ahsoka saved her life twice, yet she was perfectly fine with using her as a patsy for her own crimes, which nearly resulted in Ahsoka's execution.
  • Villain Ball: As Anakin points out, the smart thing to do would have been to dispose of Ventress' lightsabers after using them to attack Ahsoka. Barriss admits that she kept them out of vanity.
  • Walking Spoiler
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She believed the Jedi Order was degenerating from peace-keepers into warmongers, and believed they should be punished for it but this doesn't justify a bombing that killed many innocent people.

This Nautolan was the Padawan of Halsey. He met his end shortly after his master's.

Kalifa, O-Mer and Jinx

Voiced by: Gwendoline Yeo (Kalifa), Cam Clarke (O-Mer), Sunil Malhotra (Jinx)

Three Jedi Younglings who had been kidnapped by Trandoshan sportshunters sometime preceeding or during the Clone Wars. By the time the likewisely captured Ahsoka arrived on the island they were held, the three of them were losing hope, as their strength was enough only to hide and try to avoid being shot down for as long as possible.

  • Almighty Janitor: Jinx can use Jedi Mind Trick, despite being a youngling who had been kidnapped before he was even made a Padawan (granted it took some help from Chewbacca to work). Kalifa, techically also a youngling, was able to lift and strangle a Trandoshan using Force grip. Could be handwaved with the extremely hard fight to survive on the Trandoshan hunting island, which required them to develop faster, than usual.
  • Badass: Merely surviving that jungle for so long qualifies all three of them.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jinx can be very sarcastic at times:
    Ahsoka: He (Chewbacca) says his homeworld is very close.
    Jinx: That's great, but it might as well be Coruscant as far as I'm concerned. We have no ship.
    Ahsoka translating Chewie's angry growling: He thinks he can contact his home planet, if we find a way to transmit a signal.
    Jinx: Right, and how would we do that? Send smoke signals?
  • In the Back: Garnac shot Kalifa in the back after his son died trying to kill her and Ahsoka.
  • I Will Only Slow You Down: Kalifa knowing that she was dying, asked Ahsoka to save herself, because she wanted Ahsoka to take care of the others.
  • Killed Off for Real: Poor Kalifa.
  • The Lancer: Jinx was acting as this to both Kalifa, and Ahsoka.
  • Last Request: Kalifa asked Ahsoka to take care of Jinx and O-Mer before dying from the wound caused by Garnac's blaster rifle.
  • The Leader: Kalifa was a Type II, calm, level-headed leader. After Ahsoka arrived, she slowly took over the position.
  • The Moon's Expert on Getting Killed: Kalifa's been held on the hunting island for the longest time, and has statedly out-lived Padawan-learners, despite being only youngling herself. She also told the older and better-trained Ahsoka in her face, that she had the experince in surviving the hunt. Naturally she's killed soon after Ahsoka's arrival. Subverted in that, she was expert in avoiding the trandoshans as much as possible, and she died when they were ambushed while scouting after the trandoshan's base.
  • Power Trio
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Jinx is a Twi'lek and O-Mer is a Cerean.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Kalifa's death served to show, that not even children are safe on the Trandoshan hunting island.
  • Token Human: Out of the remaining younglings on Wasskah, Kalifa is the only human.
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behavior: Kalifa strangling a Trandoshan with an expression of intense hatred on her face.
  • Use Your Head: In a Combination Attack with Jinx, O-Mer headbutted one of the Trandoshans.

The Jedi Younglings

From left to right: Byph, Katooni, Ganodi, Gungi, Petro, Zatt
Voiced by: Olivia Hack (Katooni), Jeff Fischer (Petro), Greg Cipes (Zatt), Georgina Cordova (Ganodi), Dee Bradley Baker (Byph)

The top students of their class, this group of younglings were introduced when they participated the Gathering, a Rite of Passage, during which they harvested their own lightsaber-crystals. During the rite, they had to face, and overcome their shortcomings and weaknesses. Afterwards they learnt how to built their first lightsabers from Professor Huyang. Their training in the Temple is apparently overseen by Tera Sinube.

  • Ambiguously Brown: Petro.
  • An Aesop: All the kids have to learn one to get their crystals.
  • Badass Adorable: They become this during the course of their training.
  • Bilingual Dialogue: Gungi and Byph are physiologically incapable of speaking Galactic Basic, but they're perfectly capable of understanding it. So they use their own language to talk to the others (and each other), who are also capable of understanding them.
  • The Cameo: They were seen practicing lightsaber-wielding with Tera Sinube in "The Wrong Jedi" during Anakin's duel with Barriss.
  • Chekhov's Classroom/Chekhov's Skill: The younglings were shown practicing acrobatic moves in a flashback at the beginning of "The Gathering". In "Bound for Rescue", they use these moves to con their way into a travelling circus, allowing them to sneak into Hondo's base and rescue Ahsoka.
  • Children Are Innocent
  • Conscience Makes You Go Back: Petro's decision to come to Katooni's rescue rather than continue trying to find his own crystal.
    • Katooni pulls one on Hondo in "A Necessary Bond", convincing him to go back and rescue Ahsoka and the other younglings from Grievous. He does, even though he has nothing to gain from it.
  • Cool Mask: They all get one as part of their circus disguises in "Bound for Rescue".
  • Cool Sword: All of them, obviously, but Gungi stands out by making a saber with a wood casing where as the rest make regular ones.
  • Cowardly Lion: Byph in "The Gathering". He's completely grown out of it as of "Bound for Rescue".
  • Cute Little Fangs: Gungi is a Rare Male Example.
  • Determinator: Katooni, who scaled a cliff face to get to her lightsaber crystal.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Gungi, due to being a Wookiee.
    • In addition, Zatt and Byph are barefoot when outside of their cold weather gear.
  • Face Your Fears: Byph had to do this to get his crystal.
  • Fish People: Zatt, who's a Nautolan like Kit Fisto.
  • Generation Xerox: Petro seems very similar to Anakin in a few ways.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Petro has a few moments of this:
    • First, after watching Ahsoka taking on Hondo and his pirates, he exclaimed to Zatt and Ganodi who weren't present, that they should have seen her, while wildy imitating lightsaber swinging. Later when the younglings watched Ahsoka dueling Grievous he clenched his fists, and took a typical jittering pose.
    • While building his lightsaber, he exclaimed that he'll challenge Obi-Wan to a duel with it. Later when Obi-Wan answered their distress call, he went "The General Kenobi?"
  • Human Alien: Katooni, who's a Tholothian just like Adi Gallia above.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Ganodi and Gungi both have the basic body-structure of a human, but as a Wookie and a Rodian, they are significantly different from Rubber-Forehead Aliens, Human Aliens, and humans.
  • I Surrender, Suckers: Petro lets the pirates take his lightsaber away from him. This is because he assembled it incorrectly and it will explode if activated for more than a second, which he goads the pirates into doing.
  • Indy Ploy: Petro spends most of "Bound for Rescue" doing line-of-sight planning, which works out rather well.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Petro.
  • Just a Machine: Ganodi's initial thoughts on Huyang.
  • Laser Blade: Their quest to build theirs forms the impetus of the plot for their arc.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Petro
  • Morality Pet: Is it too early to say Katooni is one for Hondo?
  • Needle in a Stack of Needles: Ganodi winds up in a cave full of crystals and has to trust the Force to find the right one.
  • Nice Hat: Katooni's is another Tholothian headdress.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: Petro talked his friends into launching a counterattack, despite Ahsoka directly forbidding it, which ultimately achived nothing, except necessiating Ahsoka to put herself in risk, which resulted in her capture.
  • Odd Friendship: As of the end of "A Necessary Bond", there are hints that Katooni is beginning to form one with Hondo. Could also count as an Intergenerational Friendship.
  • Only Sane Girl: Katooni is usually the voice of reason.
  • Out of Focus: Ganodi got the least screen-time and character development of the six younglings, not even joining the rescue party.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: What they've all become as of "A Necessary Bond".
  • Rubber-Forehead Aliens: Zatt is nautolan like Kit Fisto.
  • Run or Die: When cornered by Grievous, Ahsoka and the younglings prepared to fight, but in the last second Hondo and Katooni arrived with the Slave-I to extract them. Ahsoka instructed the younglings to run, while she held up Grievous. Once the younglings were safe, Ahsoka too abandoned the fight, knowing that she had no chance of winning.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Petro
  • The So-Called Coward: Byph has to overcome his timid personality in his first episode. In the second, he willingly risks being shot by acting as bait to lure the bad guys into a trap.
  • The Unintelligible: Byph and Gungi.

Professor Huyang

"You must trust that the components that form your lightsaber are meant to be together; there is no other way. It is the Force that binds them."
Voiced by: David Tennant

An ancient lightsaber-architect droid, who has been serving the Jedi Order for well over a millenia, claiming to had taught thousands of generations of Jedi younglings to built their first lightsabers.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Has both primary arms shot off by one of Hondo's pirates, but it's more of an inconvenience than anything. He gets them reattached at the end of "A Necessary Bond".
  • Badass: During the climax of his first appearance, he epically takes down one of Hondo's pirates after having both of his arms and head shot off.
  • Badass Boast:
    • Gives one to Ganodi when he questions the ability of a droid to teach them about lightsaber construction.
      Huyang: Many years I have been on this ship teaching many a Jedi before you, and I will continue teaching many a Jedi after you. Call me what you want, but inside my memory banks I contain a record of every lightsaber ever made, and the Jedi who fashioned it.
    • And another, when one of Hondo's pirates shot off his head:
      Huyang: How dare you?! I've lived a thousand years on this ship and never lost a fight. I'm not about to start today!
  • Badass Bookworm: Has an extensive knowledge of lightsabers and how they are built.
  • Badass Teacher
  • British Accents: He is voiced by David Tennant, after all.
  • Deadpan Snarker
  • Expy: To Ollivander. Also C-3PO.
  • Gentleman Snarker
  • Lampshade Hanging: When meeting Gungi he points out that Force-sensitive Wookiees are exceptionally rare. The Expanded Universe has a grand total of three, due to a mandate forbidding any additional Wookiee Jedi.
  • Multi-Armed Multitasking: His backpack unfolds into an extra pair of arms, which he uses in his work.
  • Off with His Head!: His head gets separated from his body, but remains operational. He can even control his body remotely. His head is re-attached in "A Necessary Bond".
  • The Professor: But, of course.
  • Quintessential British Gentleman: A mechanical version of the trope: He has a High-Class Glass, speaks in a British accent, is polite and soft-spoken to all, and has a metallic mustache on his face.
  • Ridiculously Human Robot: Judging by the boast mentioned above, he's rather proud of himself, and doesn't take perceived insults to his task well.
  • Time Abyss: He claims he had teached thousands of generations of Jedi Younglings how to build their lightsabers. He mentions that even Yoda had been one of them.
