Jedi Padawan Xanatos
Homeworld: Telos IV
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, Xanatos betrayed Qui-Gon to his father, 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 galaxywide, and made several attempts to get his revenge on Qui-Gon, including trying to blow up the Jedi Temple and steal the treasury. Cornered on Telos, Xanatos ultimately committed suicide rather than be captured.
- Arch-Enemy: To Qui-Gon.
- Avenging the Villain: Seeks vengeance for his equally corrupt father.
- Better to Die than Be Killed: Leaps into acid instead of letting himself be captured.
- Big Bad: Of Books 1-8.
- The Chessmaster: With such a name, how could he not be? At one point, he spends thousands if not millions of credits to help people, just as part of a greater scheme to hurt Qui-Gon.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Offworld trafficks in slaves, kills those who get in its way, buys out governments, and does more environmental damage in one day than most Captain Planet villains did in the show's entire run.

- Create Your Own Villain

- Manipulative Bastard: He ends up being this, as he loses or at least draws every direct fight he gets into with Qui-Gon.

Jedi Initiate Bruck Chun
Homeworld; Telos IV
- Commonality Connection: Both Bruck and Xanatos are from Telos IV.
- Expy: Averted. If you think there's a resemblance between him and Draco Malfoy, it's a coincidence. Jedi Apprentice actually predates the Harry Potter films by two years, and the first Harry Potter book was only two years old by the time Jedi Apprentice began, so Harry Potter wasn't well-known yet at the time for there to be a Shout-Out.
- FaceHeel Turn: He becomes Xanatos's Padawan.
- Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!
- The Rival: To Obi-Wan. Siri replaces Bruck in this role later on.
- White Hair, Black Heart:
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 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 a kidnapped scientist named Linna Naltree, and finally killed by Darth Vader for her failure.
- And I Must Scream: She was assigned to create a serum that would wipe away specific unpleasant memories, which Vader wished to use so he could forget about Padmé. When the heroes barge into her lab, during the struggle, she gets injected with the serum and ends up forgetting everything, including her identity. By the time Vader finds her, she can only vaguely remember that she used to be a brilliant scientist, once.
- Big Bad: Of Books 11-13 of Jedi Apprentice.
- Big Bad Duumvirate: With Granta Omega in Jedi Quest.
- Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Wow, so her company saved a low-tech world from a viral outbreak? She bio-engineered food for a planet that was starving from famine? She sounds like a great gal... except she started those problems in the first place so she could be featured in the spotlight.
- Depending on the Artist: Essential Reader's Guide depicts her as blonde rather than redheaded. Everything else depicts her as the latter.
- Evil Genius: Seems pretty self-explanatory.
- Evil Redhead: Or in Essential Reader's Guide, an evil blonde, but that's not a trope here anymore.
- Evilutionary Biologist: Bacteria, viruses, chemical weaponry...
- Fate Worse than Death: Her memory is wiped, and she loses knowledge of all her experiments, and the fact that she was once a brilliant scientist. Perhaps fortunately for her, Vader executes her soon afterwards for failing to provide him the serum that was meant for him.
- For Science!: Her main motivation.
- Hot Scientist: She's not too shabby of a sight.
- It's All About Me: She expects to be rewarded and hailed as a hero for helping others.
- Jerkass Victim: No one else is too upset about her fate.
- Mad Scientist
- Mercy Kill: Arguably, since the worst way for her to go out is forgetting everything she learned, Vader killing her in rage was probably something her old self would've wanted.
- Villain with Good Publicity: Initially.
- Would Hurt a Child
- You Have Failed Me: Courtesy of Darth Vader.
Homeworld: Telos IV
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.
- Avenging the Villain: Wants revenge for his father's death, which he refuses to accept as a suicide.
- Big Bad Duumvirate: With Jenna Zan Arbor
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Inherited his father's controlling interest in Offworld.
- Diabolical Mastermind: A very well-connected crimelord, with multiple identities, and links to the Hutts, various Bounty Hunter organisations, a number of renegade Mad Scientists, and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, in addition to his ownership of Offworld. A firm believer in spending money to make money, he's more than willing to put contracts on the Jedi, attack the Senate with a mind-control weapon, and plot the destruction of an entire planet through civil war, and biological weaponry.
- Famous Last Words: "I know who he (Darth Sidious) is. You will wish you did."
- Icy Blue Eyes: As cold and icy as his father's.
- The Man Behind the Man: To the Bounty Hunters on Ragoon VI, the civil war on Mawan, and the eventual attack on the Senate.
