The Jedi High Council
The Jedi High Council, also known as the Jedi Council, was the ruling body of the Jedi Order. Situated in one of the four towers of the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the Council consisted of twelve Jedi Masters who oversaw and governed the Jedi Order as a whole. Although the Jedi supported the Galactic Republic and swore allegiance to its government, the Galactic Senate, the Council possessed the autonomy to govern the affairs of the Order without interference from the political establishment.

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

Mace Windu was a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. During his time in the Jedi Order, he wielded a purple lightsaber and once served as the elected leader of the Jedi and, during the Clone Wars, as a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic. He was the greatest champion of the Jedi Order (second only to Yoda) and promoted its ancient traditions amidst the growing influence of the Dark Side of the Force in the corrupt, declining days of the Republic.

  • Ace Custom: His Jedi starfighter is partially white with a few red and green markings.
  • Action Dad: He is a father figure to fellow High Councillor Depa Billaba and certainly a fierce warrior.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Anakin slices off Mace's right arm right before Palpatine kills him.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: He created and utilizes Form VII, Vaapad. Vaapad is about channeling one's inner darkness to gain power, stamina, etc. This usually translates into Mace's lightsaber moving so fast that it's a blur.
  • Attack Reflector: During the climax of their duel, Mace used his lightsaber to reflect Sidious' own lightning 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). Prior materials showed his lightsaber as blue.
  • Badass Baritone: He speaks with a deep voice as a result of being portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson and voiced by Terrence C. Carson.
  • Bald of Awesome: Mace is bald in addition to being a very powerful Jedi Master that is strong in the Force and a member of the Council.
  • 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 during the Clone Wars.
  • Big Good: He serves as this 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.
  • Blood Knight: His Vaapad fighting style weaponizes it, using his own inner darkness and that of his foe to increase his power.
  • Broken Pedestal:
    • Mace still respected and trusted Count Dooku to a degree after he left the Jedi Order, even defending him when Padmé suggests he was behind her attempted assassination. He is not pleased when he learns Dooku really was behind it all along, holding a lightsaber to his throat just before the First Battle of Geonosis begins.
    • As the Clone Wars drew to an end, his admiration for Palpatine diminished. And then Anakin revealed that Palpatine was Sidious...
  • The Comically Serious: When Mace has to team up with Jar Jar Binks in "The Disappeared", his serious demeanor is present 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.
  • Character Death: He gets electrocuted and flung to his death by Sidious.
  • Clones Are People, Too: While not as pronounced as with other Jedi (owing to his stoic nature), this trait of Mace is probably most evident in "Liberty on Ryloth" where he goes out of his way to make sure not a single clone trooper dies, even saving an unconscious clone trooper when being fired upon. Also, Mace laments over Ponds' execution in "Lethal Trackdown".
  • Create Your Own Villain: Kind of, as many factors turned Anakin into Darth Vader, but Mace's eternal distrust of him definitely didn't help things. Mace rejected Anakin years before his distrust had become warranted. While other Jedi encouraged Anakin to get better at being a Jedi, Mace wasn't among them. And that's not even getting to how Mace refused to own up for throwing Ahsoka under the bus to save face. So in hindsight, it's not all that surprising that Anakin had chosen Sidious over Mace.
  • 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 that much and opposes his 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. Vaapad is powerful, but also difficult to master, since it places the user at risk of falling to the Dark Side. While not directly of the Dark Side in nature, Vaapad is often described as walking in the Dark Side's penumbra or as skirting the very edge of the Light Side, to the point that it's often seen more used by Sith than Jedi. It takes incredible willpower and skill to master Vaapad, so much so in fact that in Legends, most people whom Windu taught Vaapad ended up falling to the Dark Side because of it.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Surprisingly, considering the franchise he's a part of. His main fighting style, Vaapad, allows him to weaponize his inner darkness and his opponent's fury and bloodlust by channeling it through himself, then converting it into his attacks, sort of like a conductor loop. It's especially apparent when you know how dangerous Vaapad is and how it works.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mace is occasionally shown to have a very dry and sardonic sense of humor.
    Ahsoka: Guard duty?! For how long?
    Mace: Longer now.
  • Death by Irony: The guy who distrusted Anakin the most dies because Anakin finally earned his trust.
  • Death Glare: He gives the mother of all these to Palpatine during a blade lock in their duel. He also directs a somber one to Anakin right before Sidious blasts him away.
  • Destination Defenestration: In Revenge of the Sith, he goes out spectacularly after being blasted out a window by Darth Sidious' Force lightning.
  • Dislikes the New Guy: More than any other Jedi, he disapproves of Anakin Skywalker joining the Jedi Order. He continues to voice his general dislike for Anakin's volatile personality and unpredictability throughout his career as a Jedi. In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin reveals Palpatine is a Sith Lord and Windu starts to reconsider his opinion. That is, until Anakin ultimately helps Palpatine kill him.
  • Disney Villain Death: Although he's not a villain, he gets thrown out of Palpatine's office to his death and the impact is never seen. Possibly subverted; he might have already been dead from Palpatine's Force Lightning attack by that point.
  • Fatal Flaw: Impulsiveness. It bites him both in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith: in the former, he leads a rushed, uncoordinated attack on Geonosis which gets many Jedi killed and the rest of them cornered until Yoda's timely rescue; in the latter, upon hearing that Palpatine is a Sith lord, he goes immediately to arrest him without taking preventive measures, launching an alarm, or merely telling anybody in the Jedi Order, with the fatidic consequence that the information effectively dies with him at Sidious' hands and condemns the entire order.
  • For Want of a Nail: Raising his lightsaber to dramatically kill Palpatine instead of just stabbing him allowed Anakin 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 Nice: Zigzagged. Mace is generally respectful to those he deems worthy of respect (which tends to be anyone who isn't trying to cause destruction), but he has his moments of being rather cold and indifferent to the emotional plights of other people.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Mace is a virtually unstoppable force in combat and willing to break the Jedi Code if he feels it will serve the greater good.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Mace uses a purple-bladed lightsaber.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity:
    • Not long after his death, he is framed by Palpatine and Anakin as a traitor who tried to assassinate The Good Chancellor as part of the Jedi's plot to take over, when in fact he was trying to save the galaxy from the tyranny of the Sith.
      Anakin: The Jedi have tried to overthrow the Republic.
      Padmé: I can't believe that!
      Anakin: I saw Master Windu attempt to assassinate the Chancellor myself.
    • In Lost Stars, the Imperial history lessons that Ciena and Thane study paint him as a criminal who led a gang to start the Clone Wars.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Mace's cold treatment against Ahsoka during and after her trial provokes that she lost faith in the Jedi Order meaning that, in Season 7, she doesn't share Maul's warnings about Anakin with them, which directly leads to Mace's own death.
  • Hope Spot: After Anakin confesses his findings of Palpatine being a Sith Lord, Mace thanks the Jedi Knight and tells him that he will finally earn his trust when the confrontation is over. Unfortunately, that never happens.
  • Horrible Judge of Character:
    • In regards to Dooku. When Padmé states her belief that he was behind the attempt on her life, Mace says that Dooku would never try to assassinate anyone due to his sense of honor. We hate to break it to you, Mace, but...
    • Zig-Zagged in regards to Anakin. Mace is wary of Anakin from the start and straight-up tells Yoda and Obi-Wan he doesn't trust him. While Anakin does actually end up betraying the Jedi Order, part of the reason for this was because of Mace and some of the other Council members never trusting or supporting him, inadvertently pushing him away and into Palpatine's influence.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: This is how Windu sees Jango's 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 Yoda) reached out to Anakin and urged him to improve himself. By the time that 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.
    • In The Clone Wars, Anakin questions why he doesn't go after Boba Fett and arrest him, citing the young boy caused a lot of destruction to kill Mace. The older Jedi responds that he is in a war, and as such, going after Boba would be pointless.
    • He does have a more valid point about killing Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith. Anakin argues he should be spared to stand trial (mostly for his own selfish reasons), but Mace argues back that Sidious is "too dangerous to be left alive" — he's got so much influence over the Senate he could very well get himself off, or escape to continue the war. They probably have enough evidence to justify that they killed him in self-defense as he confessed to being a Sith Lord to Anakin, killed three Jedi Masters, and tried to kill Mace after violently resisting arrest. Unfortunately, this only ends up helping Sidious in the long run when he brands the Jedi as traitors, as well as convincing the deeply conflicted Anakin to side with the Sith Lord.
  • 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 of the Jedi and other characters he interacts with have a difficult relationship with him. However, Mace does care deeply for all life, is shown risking his own life multiple times to save soldiers under his command, advocates for saving the Zillo Beast from destruction, and his increasingly poor attitude during the Clone Wars is largely due to the heavy death toll the war has taken on the Jedi Order and civilians. Even though his attempt to reason with Boba after his arrest was rather tactless (and did nothing helpful in the long run), the guidebook Scum and Villainy reveals that the Republic Judiciary probably would have done worse to Boba than jail time (as rogue clones don't normally get a right to due process) had Mace not tried to negotiate for a lighter sentence.
  • 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 time of 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 where 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 the other Jedi, 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: He wields a purple-bladed lightsaber, and it stands out amongst the blue-bladed and green-bladed lightsabers all the other prequel era Jedi have.
  • Man of Kryptonite: Vaapad works by taking an enemy's dark side power and bloodlust, channeling it through Mace, and allowing him to turn it back against them. This makes him this trope to Dark Side users, as he's effectively able to turn their own power back against them. This is one major reason he was able to defeat Sidious (while ambiguous, George Lucas has stated that Mace did win the fight), one of the very few capable of doing so.
  • Master Swordsman: According to the creators, 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.
  • My Greatest Failure: Mace came to see his actions during the First Battle of Geonosis as this afterwards. He regretted that he had not seized the opportunity to kill Dooku when he had the chance, preventing him from ending the Separatist threat then and there.
  • Never My Fault: After Ahsoka is framed for bombing the Jedi Temple hangar, Mace leads the Council in voting to excommunicate her from the Jedi Order. When she's subsequently revealed to be innocent, he still doesn't actually apologize to her for the Council's treatment of her, saying that the tribulations she's faced were the Force's way of testing her worthiness to become a Jedi Knight. Ahsoka is clearly unimpressed and this likely contributed to her deciding to leave the Order anyway.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: 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, which is an event that further inflames Anakin's anger with the Jedi.
  • Not So Above It All: Crossing over with Actor Allusion, Mace has the phrase “Bad motherf*cker” inscribed on his lightsaber.
  • 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".
  • Parental Substitute: To Depa Billaba, his former Padawan learner. 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 they became very close.
  • Pragmatic Hero: Although he is 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 a 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: He has these just like many of the other Jedi.
  • Purple Is Powerful: He's one of the most powerful Jedi to ever live and his lightsaber's blade is purple.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He is very sound in judgment and willing to listen to Anakin, even when he doesn't trust him. Unfortunately, his reason gives out in the worst possible moments.
  • 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.
  • Sacrificial Lion: He is the first major Jedi to be killed in Revenge of the Sith, which sets the stage for the Jedi assassinations that were to follow due to the execution of Order 66.
  • Scary Black Man: His implacable nature and fierce disposition are such that in the Ryloth campaign, Dooku orders Wat Tambor and his army to retreat rather than face Windu. He's also 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 an unconscious clone trooper.
  • 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 a few times during the Clone Wars, and the only time he seems upset is after learning Palpatine is actually Darth Sidious.
  • Supporting Leader: He was this during the Jedi assault on the arena of Geonosis in Attack of the Clones.
  • Token Human: He was this until Obi-Wan and Anakin joined 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 attacked 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".
  • Vindicated by History: An In-Universe example. Mace is a controversial figure, with his Jerk with a Heart of Gold tendencies putting a lot of people off, even other Jedi who know him well. As it turns out, he was right about most of his suspicions; mainly that Jedi and the Republic were being undermined from within. Jedi Master Luke Skywalker would spend a decade searching for lost knowledge, including much on the Clone Wars, and would learn about Windu, gaining a huge amount of respect for him, concluding that for all his faults, he was an embodiment of the good within the Jedi Order, and was almost able to prevent the Emperor's rise to power, and all that followed, if not for Anakin's betrayal.
  • We Used to Be Friends: He and Count Dooku were once friends. After Dooku left the Jedi Order, Mace believed that he was still a good man. The events on Geonosis revealed the truth to him.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: He evidently treated the clone troopers with respect, going out of his way to save as many as he could during his missions, as well as being sullen at their deaths.
  • World's Best Warrior: He is the single greatest fighter in the Jedi Order at the time of his death, having cornered and subdued 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), Dooku, Anakin (who's the Chosen One), and maybe Obi-Wan.

    Plo Koon 

Master Plo Koon
"We are justice."

Species: Kel Dor

Homeworld: Dorin

Appearances: Age of Republic | 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."

Plo Koon was a Kel Dor Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. He was regarded as one of the wisest Jedi in the Order. He had a close bond and served 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.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Legends, Plo was a Force virtuoso and a renowned master of telekinesis (in addition to being a user of a rare Light Sided Force lightning technique called Electric Judgement), an expert in elemental and nature techniques, an adept of Baran Do secret sciences, and one of the best swordsbeings in the order (to the point that he had a sparring victory over Yoda in his racket). The fact that he is killed while in a starfighter underlines that he would have probably put a hell of a fight had he been able to employ his abilities with freedom, at least if not caught completely off guard like several other Order 66 casualties were. In canon, however, Plo is just an average Jedi Master in the Council, with some admirable yet generic traits, such as being a skilled pilot, Force-user, and lightsaber-wielder.
  • Ascended Extra: He was one of the peripheral Jedi that were featured in the Prequel Trilogy with small screen time and zero lines. In The Clone Wars, he got a fleshed-out and expanded role and the most screen time of all Council members except the Big Two of Mace and Yoda, because...
  • Author Appeal: He is Dave Filoni's favorite character.
  • Badass Baritone: James Arnold Taylor uses a deep, Ian McKellen-inspired voice for Plo Koon.
  • Badass Long Robe: He 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 following the execution of 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: He wears a breathing mask that looks cool.
  • 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 an escape pod, he orders 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 battle droids.
  • Extremophile Lifeforms: Oxygen is toxic to Kel Dor like Plo, who instead breathe a mixture of a Dorin-unique gas and helium. As a result, his species require respirator masks and goggles when away from Dorin.
  • A Father to His Men: Of all the Jedi generals, he is one of the closest to his men. When he and three of his clone troopers are trapped in a non-functional escape pod in "Rising Malevolence", the clones are very pessimistic about their chances to survive, but Plo keeps their hope alive by continuously reasserting that their lives aren't meaningless. His Wolfpack even fly dropships with "Plo's Bros" Nose Art!
    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 3PO and R2 aboard Grievous' flagship in "Nomad Droids", this ensues:
    C-3PO: 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 and they have only four fingers.
  • I Am the Noun: Somewhat overlaps with Badass Boast.
    Boba Fett: I want justice.
    Plo Koon: We are justice.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Not So Similar: He serves as a foil to Anakin via their relationships with Ahsoka. He is often used (most blatantly in "Padawan Lost" and during the Fugitive arc) to provide contrast between normal Jedi friendship and Anakin's struggles with Dark Side levels of attachment and obsession. Plo is not always in the right, but even his mistakes are consistently in the direction of a 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 a significant amount of screentime in some of the early episodes, he fades more and more into the background as The Clone Wars 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, and he even affectionately calls her "Little 'Soka".
  • 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 Dave Filoni, Plo was one of the three Council members that sided with Ahsoka in the Council's discussions and voting during the Fugitive arc. 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.

    Kit Fisto 

Master Kit Fisto
"Those who have power should restrain themselves from using it."

Species: Nautolan

Homeworld: Glee Anselm

Portrayed by: Zac Jensen/Daniel Zizmor (Attack of the Clones), Ben Cooke (Revenge of the Sith)
Voiced by: Phil LaMarr
Appearances: Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Revenge of the Sith

"Patience, both of you. A second look usually pays off."

Kit Fisto was a Nautolan Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. He was known for being skilled in battle and far more humorous and laid-back than many of his colleagues.

  • 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.
  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In Legends, Kit had a very close, borderline romantic relationship with Aayla Secura. In canon, they apparently do not have such a relationship.
  • Alien Hair: His tentacles.
  • Ascended Extra: He receives a fleshed-out and expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and zero lines.
  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Phil LaMarr.
  • Badass in Distress: He is briefly held captive during the Battle of Mon Cala and tortured alongside Anakin. He is freed when the Quarren turn on the Separatists.
  • Cat Smile: This is his normal facial expression.
  • Character Death: Fisto is cut down by Darth Sidious in Revenge of the Sith.
  • Curb Stomp Cushion: Of the three Jedi Windu brings to confront Palpatine, Fisto lasts the longest against the Dark Lord of the Sith.
  • Day in the Limelight: In "Lair of Grievous", Kit is the main protagonist and gets a chance to show off his skills against General Grievous.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He is kind of one, particularly towards Anakin during the Battle of Mon Cala.
  • Dual Wielding: He 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 make him popular among the Younglings.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: A rare male version. Kit's shirtless scenes during the Mon Calamari arc in The Clone Wars present him as being quite fit.
  • Grin of Audacity: He 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: He 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 design in The Clone Wars has a much stronger, square jawline than he had in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith because neither of his designs in the Prequel Trilogy translated well in animation that he's a heroic character.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Little "No": He says this when his former Padawan Nahdar Vebb is killed by Grievous.
  • Master Swordsman: He 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 arrogant the war has made his former apprentice.
  • Mr. Fanservice: In The Clone Wars, he is the only male character to have a completely gratuitous, non-justifiable Shirtless Scene. The writers joked that it was something of a Twilight reference.
  • Nice Guy: He's easily one of the friendliest and most approachable Jedi, especially compared to his peers on the Council.
  • 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: Less than Agen Kolar due to The Clone Wars giving him a fleshed-out and expanded role with lines. However, in the Prequel Trilogy, he does little but knock over C-3PO and get killed by Chancellor Palpatine.
  • Shirtless Scene: Let's just say there was a good reason all of Kit's fangirls looked forward to the fourth season of The Clone Wars.
  • Tactical Rock–Paper–Scissors:
    • Part of the reason for his success against Grievous is the fact that Fisto's preferred lightsaber form, Form I, specializes in taking on multiple opponents at once. As a result, he was able to adapt far more easily to Grievous' multi-armed assault than most other lightsaber wielders.
    • Unfortunately, Form I is less useful in one-on-one duels, hence why Fisto gets killed by Darth Sidious.
  • The Worf Effect: He was brought with Windu to confront Palpatine because he is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order; while he puts up a better fight than Tiin and Kolar, Sidious still manages to quickly kill him.


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

Species: Cerean

Homeworld: Cerea

Portrayed by: Silas Carson (films, The Clone Warsnote 
Voiced by: Brian George
Appearances: The Phantom Menace | Obi-Wan & Anakin | Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Kanan | Revenge of the Sith

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

Ki-Adi-Mundi was a Cerean Jedi Master and a leading member of the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. By the time of the Clone Wars, Mundi became a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic. Like his Jedi colleagues, he led the Republic clone troopers against the Separatist Alliance forces in several battles across the galaxy, including the first and second Battles of Geonosis and the Outer Rim Sieges. During the final year of the Clone Wars, Mundi oversaw the Republic invasion of Mygeeto with the Galactic Marines under his command. During the campaign, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine instructed the Grand Army soldiers to execute their Jedi leaders per Order 66, an act that resulted in the death of Mundi along with the majority of the Jedi Order.

  • Adaptational Backstory Change: In Legends, Ki-Adi-Mundi was a rare example of a Jedi who was married and with children, as his species' low birth rate and scarcity of males gained him an exemption from the Jedi rule about love relationships. Nothing of this is mentioned in canon, where he's presumably a regular celibate Jedi.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Downplayed. In Legends, Ki-Adi was talked about in the same sentence as his master Yoda in regards to his Form III lightsaber expertise, and although he was not a powerhouse as some of his fellow Masters, he was an excellent battlefield survivor, with piloting skills, knowledge of Force healing and a neat Improv Fu. In canon, Ki-Adi is not implied to be anything but an average Jedi Master, albeit one surprisingly competent for his age and looks (which is still mostly Played for Laughs).
  • Agent Scully: He 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.
  • Ascended Extra: He receives a fleshed-out and expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and few lines.
  • Badass Beard: He has a small white beard.
  • Bald of Awesome: He is 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.
  • Cavalry Betrayal: His clone troopers turned on him while he lead a charge against the droid army on Mygeeto.
  • Character Death: He gets killed by his own clone troopers on Mygeeto after the execution of Order 66.
  • Cool Old Guy: When he hears Anakin denying to acknowledge Ahsoka's victory in the Body-Count Competition mentioned above, Mundi tells 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.
    • It 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 Jedi Order, so it might just be denial that his old friend had become such a monster. It also has to be said that this applies to all of the Jedi Order. No one could believe a Jedi who was the greatest hero in the Order for decades could become evil.
  • Kill It with Fire: During the Second Battle of Geonosis, he ordered his clone troopers to use flamethrowers against the Geonosians.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Mauve Shirt: In the Prequel Trilogy, he is the only member of the Jedi Council 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 than most Jedi robes seen in the films and The Clone Wars, making it look like he actually goes around in streetwear (which is what Jedi robes are supposed to resemble but rarely do, in fairness).
  • Not So Above It All: Anakin and Ahsoka hold a juvenile Body-Count Competition during the Second Battle of Geonosis. After the battle, Ahsoka asks for Anakin's total and it turned out she won. Anakin, however, claims that since he had called in the airstrike, it should add enough to his tally to make it a draw. Hearing this, the old, stern Ki-Adi intervenes and adds his own total, which is 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 asks what 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!: During Order 66, he leads a column of clones in Mygeeto, but upon realizing they have stopped following him, he turns to them... and sees them with their weapons trained on him. The trope is right on his face, even although he manages to parry a few shots before going down.
  • Properly Paranoid:
    • He is among the Jedi who advise against training Anakin, who would eventually chase them all to extinction. He is also wary of the voices that Master Yoda hears.
    • He was the only member of the Jedi 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 is indeed what Sidious and Dooku end up doing.
  • Psychic Powers: Expected from a Jedi. His mental powers are formidable, as not only was he able to recognize young Anakin's fear, but also his main concern, namely, his mother.
  • 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, basically a human with a tall head.
  • Snow Means Death: Mundi is killed while he and his clone troopers are fighting a battle in the middle of a snowstorm on Mygeeto.
  • Wizard Beard: Has a short if notable version, and is a space wizard to boot.

Saesee Tiin was an Iktotchi Jedi Master who served on the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. A skilled lightsaber combatant and starfighter pilot, Tiin fought in the Clone Wars as a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic.

  • Character Death: He gets stabbed by Sidious.
  • 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".

  • Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Mauve Shirt: He was the least developed out of the members of the Jedi Council who received a fleshed-out and expanded 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: He was brought in 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 lightsaber duel against Sidious beginning.

    Eeth Koth 

Master Eeth Koth

Species: Zabrak (Iridonian)

Homeworld: Nar Shaddaa

Portrayed by: Hassani Shapi
Voiced by: Chris Edgerly

Eeth Koth was a Zabrak Jedi Master who was a member of the Jedi Council in addition to serving as one of the Jedi generals during the Clone Wars. At some point before the end of the Clone Wars and the execution of Order 66, he was removed from the Council and he left the Order before joining the Church of Ganthic Enlightenment as a priest.

  • Action Dad: Despite no longer being a Jedi, he's still a skilled fighter, taking on Darth Vader in an attempt to protect his newborn daughter.
  • Ain't Too Proud to Beg: When Vader comes for his family, he pleads with him that he's no longer affiliated with the Jedi and will even help him find other Jedi who survived the Purge if he will only leave his family alone. Vader is unmoved, prompting a lightsaber duel.
  • Always Save the Girl: At his most desperate, he's willing to sell out his former Jedi comrades to the Empire if it means protecting his wife Mira and their daughter.
  • Ascended Extra: He receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and zero lines.
  • Back for the Dead: After his previous appearance in The Clone Wars, Koth makes his return in Dark Lord of the Sith (which revealed that he was removed from the Council and left the Jedi Order before becoming a priest, leading him to be replaced by another Zabrak Jedi named Agen Kolar), only to be hunted down and killed by Darth Vader.
  • Badass in Distress: In "Grievous Intrigue", he gets captured by General Grievous. Although, he does put up a good fight against him and his MagnaGuards.
  • Badass Preacher: Following the rise of the Empire, he becomes a priest of the Church of Ganthic Enlightenment and proves he can still kick ass when it comes to defending his family, not that it does him much good in the end.
  • Character Death: Koth gets hunted down and killed by Vader sometime after the fall of the Jedi Order.
  • Character Development: Following the Jedi Purge, Darth Vader remarks that he no longer controls his emotions as much as when he was a Jedi, strongly sensing fear, resentment and anger from him. He also no longer holds much loyalty to the Jedi and their teachings, placing a much higher priority on his family.
  • Electric Torture: He was subjected to it repeatedly while he was held captive by Grievous.
  • Facial Markings: As is typical for a member of his species.
  • Horned Humanoid: He is a Zabrak, after all.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: He dies as a result of being stabbed in the back by Darth Vader.
  • I Shall Taunt You: He takes the time to goad Grievous with some insults before their duel.
    Grievous: Eeth Koth, isn't it? I've been looking forward to meeting you!
    Koth: Your reputation precedes you, General. A reputation of a coward and a murderer...
    Grievous: Murderer? Is it murder to rid the galaxy of you Jedi filth?!
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Upon seeing the Inquistors have captured his daughter, he can only utter "Oh n..." before being fatally stabbed by Vader.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Noodle Incident: The circumstances of his departure from the Jedi Order.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's a Zabrak, a species that has several cranial horns.
  • So Happy Together: His wife had just given birth to their daughter when Darth Vader comes knocking.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In early Legends material, Eeth Koth was killed at the Battle of Geonosis. This was overwritten when he showed up alive and well in The Clone Wars, and he died in Canon after the rise of the Empire.

    Adi Gallia 

Master Adi Gallia

Species: Tholothian

Homeworld: Coruscant

Portrayed by: Gin Clarke
Voiced by: Angelique Perrin

Adi Gallia was a Tholothian Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council.

  • Ace Custom: Her Jedi starfighter is painted red with white stripes.
  • Ace Pilot: She flies alongside Saesee Tiin and Kit Fisto in "Citadel Rescue".
  • Action Girl: She is a capable Jedi Master and was selected to assist Obi-Wan in hunting down Darth Maul and Savage Opress.
  • Adaptational Dumb Ass: Downplayed. In Legends, Adi was a politics expert and acted as The Spymaster for the Jedi Order. In canon, Adi is just a regular Jedi Master with the Informed Ability of being a source of intelligence for the Senate.
  • Ascended Extra: She receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Council with small screen time and little to no lines.
  • Back-to-Back Badasses: With Anakin in "Grievous Intrigue".
  • Badass in Distress: In "Nomad Droids", she was captured by General Grievous.
  • The Cameo: She does appear a lot in the background for Jedi Council meeting scenes, but she either has only a few spoken lines or none at all.
  • Character Death: She is gored and fatally stabbed by Savage Oppress.
  • Damsel out of Distress: She and her soldiers escaped from Grievous on their own before Plo Koon's rescue team reached her in "Nomad Droids".
  • Dies Differently in Adaptation: Both canon and Legends feature Gallia dying at the hands of a lightsaber-wielding opponent during the Clone Wars to (further) establish the danger a villain poses; however, her original Legends death was courtesy of General Grievousnote  while canon sees her killed by Savage Oppress.
  • Dropped a Bridge on Her: Her death during the lightsaber duel that she and Obi-Wan have against with Darth Maul and Savage Opress on Florrum is very sudden and brutal.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Twice, courtesy of Savage Opress. Savage first impaled her with his horns and then delivered the finishing blow with his lightsaber.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Offscreen Moment of Awesome: Her aforementioned escape.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: Although she looks human, she is actually Tholothian, a near-human species with scaled craniums and head tendrils. In Legends works written before The Clone Wars, she and Stass Allie were stated to be humans wearing cultural headdresses; it wasn't until a Legends sourcebook for The Clone Wars that they were first identified as Tholothians, with them initially being presumed to be Human Aliens until canon works established that the "headdresses" are part of their biology.
  • Sacrificial Lion: Her death in "Revival" (the season five premiere of The Clone Wars) demonstrates (outside of flashbacks) that Maul and Savage are very dangerous and Anyone Can Die.

    Shaak Ti 

Master Shaak Ti
"You are where you need to be. Solve your problems as a whole, not as individuals."

Species: Togruta

Homeworld: Shili

Portrayed by: Orli Shoshan
Voiced by: Tasia Valenza
Appearances: Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple | Revenge of the Sith | Star Wars (Marvel 2015)note 

"Unity wins war, gentlemen."

Shaak Ti was a female Togruta Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. During the Clone Wars, she oversaw the training and cloning facilities on Kamino.

  • Action Girl: She is a very capable Jedi Master and her skills made her a good choice to oversee the training of new clone troopers and defend Kamino from an assault.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Legends, Shaak was almost a living legend for her abilities: she was one of the finest swordfighters in the Order, a master in telekinesis and Force nature techniques, and a top strategist. She also saved many lives during the Clone Wars, survived to the Order 66, and had to be taken down by a supernova like Galen Marek while she was busy setting up a resistance movement against the Empire. In canon, however, Shaak is just an average Jedi Master with some battlefield talent who is assigned to Kamino to oversee the production and training of new clone troopers in addition to getting killed by Darth Vader during his assault on the Jedi Temple.
  • Alien Hair: Her horns and head-tails.
  • Ascended Extra: She receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy via occasional cameos.
  • The Cameo: She tends to briefly appear mostly in Jedi Council meeting scenes. Also, a holocron displays her image in the main Star Wars comic.
  • Character Death: She gets stabbed through the chest by Darth Vader during the attack of the Jedi Temple.
  • Clones Are People, Too: In her conversation with Lama Su about the Domino Squad, she argues that they can't just cast off the Dominoes since they're living beings.
  • Death by Adaptation: In Legends, she was one of the few Jedi to survive the enactment of Order 66, and spent sixteen years in hiding before eventually meeting her end at the hands of Galen Marek on Felucia. In canon, she died at Vader's hand (or blade, rather) during the attack on the Jedi Temple (but not before recording a final message on a holocron). In a deleted scene that was nearly fully completed but ultimately cut from the film, she was also executed by General Grievous near the beginning of Revenge of the Sith.
  • Dual Wielding: During the Battle of Coruscant, she uses both her lightsaber and a MagnaGuard staff to fight Grievous and his guards.
  • 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 attack on the Jedi Temple, she records a message on a holocron and begs 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 ends up seized by the Empire.
  • 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. This canonized a deleted scene in Revenge of the Sith that was never completed.note 
  • In the Back: During the Jedi Temple Massacre, Vader sneaks up behind her while she's meditating. Shaak Ti, unaware of Anakin's fall to the Dark Side, doesn't realize the purpose of his presence until he's already stabbed her through the upper torso with his lightsaber.
  • Lady of War: During the Battle of Kamino, she took out a bunch of Aqua Droids very gracefully.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • A Mother to Her Men: In addition to her mentality mentioned above, she also gives some warm-hearted advice to Fives and Echo. She also stands up for Fives when Nala Se threatens to have him decommissioned for removing his own inhibitor chip.
  • Out of Focus: She's the only member of the Jedi Council who had a more expanded role than occasional cameos that didn't get a Day in the Limelight episode in The Clone Wars.
  • 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).


Master Sifo-Dyas

Species: Human

Homeworld: Minashee

Voiced by: Paul Nakauchi (The Clone Wars), Sean Kenin (Dooku: Jedi Lost)
Appearances: Dooku: Jedi Lost | 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

Sifo-Dyas was a Jedi Master who was formerly a 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.

  • Adaptation Relationship Overhaul: In late Legends, Sifo-Dyas had been helped in his clone army project by Hego Damask II, also known as Darth Plagueis, who advised him and funded the whole thing (overwriting the previous Legends canon in which it had been Dooku who paid the army). Nothing of this remains canon, so he apparently had nothing to do with Plagueis. Amusingly, as the bit about Dooku has not been re-established, the question of how Sifo-Dyas got so much money is currently unanswered.
  • The Apprentice: To Master Lene Kostana. Even after becoming a knight he continued to travel with and go on missions with her, as she helped him deal with his visions and seizures.
  • Ascended Extra: In The Clone Wars, he receives an expanded (though posthumous) role and we actually see what he looks like and learn more about him during the Yoda arc.
  • Cassandra Truth: Before the Invasion of Naboo, he predicted a great conflict was coming, and the Republic would need an army to defend itself. Sadly the rest of the Jedi Council didn't listen and demoted him for his "extremist" attitudes.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: As a young Padawan, Sifo-Dyas was tormented by visions of the future that often caused him to have seizures. As he grew older, he got a better handle on his visions and how to deal with them, although it took decades for him to do so and he was still often tormented by what he saw.
  • The Ghost: Briefly, in Attack of the Clones — he didn't make an appearance until the Yoda arc in 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: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Make It Look Like an Accident: Officially, he was caught in the crossfire of a civil war on Felucia and shot down. As Anakin and Obi-Wan discover in "The Lost One", he was actually murdered by the Pyke Syndicate, on Dooku's orders.
  • 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: Dooku wanted to ensure that the Sith would influence the clone army, which would serve as the reason for Sifo-Dyas' death.
  • Older Than They Look: The script of Dooku: Jedi Lost states that Sifo-Dyas is the same age as Dooku, which means he would be around seventy years old when he died. Yet the vision shown to us in The Clone Wars looks at least thirty years younger than that.
  • Posthumous Character: He is this in the Prequel Trilogy. The circumstances of his death are revealed in The Clone Wars.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The apparition that Palpatine creates in "Sacrifice" has this trait, which is how Yoda can tell he was an imposter.
  • Samurai Ponytail: He's space Asian and sports a genuine chonmage hairstyle.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Despite dying a decade before the events of Attack of the Clones, he is directly responsible for the creation of the Republic's 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. However, he's not necessarily wrong for thinking there should be an army, and the state of the galaxy would have probably made him right even if the Clone Wars had not been deliberately provoked by the Sith.

    Even Piell 

Master Even Piell

Species: Lannik

Homeworld: Lannik

Portrayed by: Michaela Cottrell
Voiced by: Blair Bess
Appearances: The Phantom Menace | Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars

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

Even Piell was a Lannik Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council. He was a gruff and battle-hardened warrior who was entrusted with many important missions during the Clone Wars.

  • Adaptational Wimp: If only technically, as the Disney canon de-canonized all of his appearances in Legends except for the ones in The Clone Wars where he gets captured by the Separatists (and not by another Force sensitive like Ventress or Dooku, but by battle droids) and is killed trying to escape. Ironically, The Clone Wars claims Even Piell was one of the most powerful members of the Jedi Council, which only gets it all more incoherent. The canon novel Tarkin also has the title character thinking of Piell as a Dumb Muscle, though this might be just Tarkin being Tarkin.
  • Ascended Extra: He receives an expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as one of the peripheral members of the Jedi Council with small screen time and zero lines.
  • Badass in Distress: He was captured by Separatists and imprisoned in the Citadel.
  • Death by Adaptation: In early Legends, he survived the Clone Wars and the initial execution of Order 66 before being killed during the early years of the Empire.note  In Canon, he was mauled to death by an anooba while escaping from the Citadel.
  • Death In The Limelight: He dies towards the end of the Citadel arc.
  • Determinator: Master Piell refuses to share the intel, even under heavy torture.
  • Eye Scream: He lost an eye way before The Clone Wars. A torture droid almost gouged out the other one.
  • Husky Russkie: He 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.
  • Informed Ability: In his first episode in The Clone Wars, he is said to be one of the most powerful Jedi Council members, implying he is not far from the level of Yoda and Windu. However, he then proceeds to surrender to three droidekas, which less important Jedi had been shown outsmarting and defeating in the same series, so this claim definitely doesn't show too much.
  • Laser Blade: He 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. However, they are rather short and have long, pointy ears, giving them a vague resemblance to Yoda's species.

    Agen Kolar 

Master Agen Kolar

Species: Zabrak (Iridonian)

Homeworld: Coruscant

Portrayed by: Tux Akindoyeni
Appearances: The Clone Warsnote | Attack of the Clones | Revenge of the Sith

Agen Kolar was a Zabrak Jedi Master and member of the Jedi Council after Jedi Master Eeth Koth was removed. He accompanied Mace Windu, Kit Fisto, and Saesee Tinn in confronting Palpatine.

  • The Cameo: In The Clone Wars episode "Voices", he makes a brief appearance in Yoda's vision of how the Clone Wars will end. Or they planned him to, as Eeth Koth's character model is used instead.
  • Character Death: He gets stabbed by Sidious.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Alongside Tiin, he gets killed within seconds of the lightsaber duel against Palpatine starting. Fisto Follows soon later.
  • Horned Humanoid: Comes with being a Zabrak.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Red Shirt: He never talks nor exists for much other than being killed by Palpatine.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: He's a Zabrak, a species that has several cranial horns.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: He looks similar to Eeth Koth, being a Zabrak that replaced him on the Jedi Council after he stepped down. In fact, Kolar was originally meant to be Koth during the Geonosis scenes in Attack of the ClonesNote , but he looked different enough that he was a made separate character.
  • The Worf Effect: He was bought with Mace to confront Palpatine because he is one of the most powerful Jedi in the Order but he is killed in seconds.

    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
Appearances: Master & Apprentice | Age of Republic | The Phantom Menace | Queen's Shadow | Attack of the Clones | Jedi of the Republic | The Clone Wars | The Bad Batch | 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 before the Clone Wars. She was 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: In Legends, she eventually fell to the Dark Side. In canon, she never had a stint with the Dark Side and performed a Heroic Sacrifice instead.
  • Adaptational Species Change: In Legends, Chalactans were a Human Alien species with negligible differences from humans. The canon has retconned the species into simply being a human culture from Chalacta.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Legends, Depa was a master of many psychic abilities, with a mental conditioning and empathy that were second only to Yoda himself, and was such a good swordswoman that her master Windu of all people believed she had surpassed him at this field. In fact, although she didn't duel him in fair terms, she set a trap that surprised the ever-perceptive Windu and almost finished him. In canon, meanwhile Depa is known just as a lightsaber expert without any great feats.
  • 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.
  • Blatant Lies: During Order 66, she tells Caleb to run, saying she'll "be right behind [him]". Caleb later states he knew she was lying, but he ran anyway.
  • Braids of Action: She wears her hair in two looped braids.
  • 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 counterpart. 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-Apprentice Chain: She makes up part of a chain of mentors and apprentices leading to Ezra Bridger. Mace Windu was master to Depa Billaba who was master to Caleb Dume/Kanan Jarrus who was master to Ezra Bridger.
  • 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 Caleb/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.
  • Parental Substitute: The fact that Caleb viewed her as a parent is quite evident given his thoughts on her even a decade after her death after he'd changed his name to Kanan and left the order behind.
  • People Jars: Depa spent quite a while in a coma in a bacta tank to recover from the injuries she received in the Battle of Haruun Kal. It is implied she woke due to the Force forging a connection between her and Caleb when he visited the infirmary for a wound received in practice and saw her.
  • Posthumous Character: By the time of Rebels she's been dead for a decade but her training of Kanan back when he was still Caleb informs the way he trains Ezra and his guilt over leaving when she told him to run knowing she was going to die during Order 66 is obviously still painful to him, her death being shoved back into the forefront of his mind is the first time he starts breaking down under the Empire's torture.
  • 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.
  • The Strategist: Despite her reputation and dislike of the council allowing itself to become a military organization Depa is quite good at military strategy and tactics, as shown during the skirmish on Kardoa where the only casualty to her forces was Caleb being injured due to not following orders to the letter.
  • There Is No Kill Like Overkill: After falling from the initial shot to her back following the execution of Order 66, several clone troopers gather around Depa and fire several more shots into her body to ensure that she is dead.

    Coleman Trebor 

Master Coleman Trebor

Species: Vurk

Homeworld: Sembla

Portrayed by: CGI

Coleman Trebor was a Vurk member of the Jedi Council who participated in the First Battle of Geonosis, where he was killed by Jango Fett.

  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: His species, the Vurks, were modeled after the well-known hadrosaurid Parasaurolophus.
  • Fake Ultimate Mook: He is a Jedi Master on the Jedi Council, but he gets almost effortlessly taken down by Jango Fett.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: During the First Battle of Geonosis, he attempts to attack Count Dooku without any backup. While Dooku seems surprised by his appearance, Trebor is so focused on killing Dooku he does not notice Jango, who manages to get the drop on him.
  • One Steve Limit: Notable aversion; He is one of very few characters in all of Star Wars who shares a first name with another, which is especially notable since he and Coleman Kcaj served on the Jedi Council at the same time.
  • Red Shirt: He has no lines, and exists for Jango to kill and help establish how skilled he is.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: "Trebor" is the reverse of Robert, which is a reference to Robert Coleman, an employee at Industrial Light & Magic.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, he was a master of Form III, Soresu. Yes, that's right, a Form III Jedi Master was killed by a blaster.

    Stass Allie 

Master Stass Allie

Species: Tholothian

Homeworld: Tholoth

Portrayed by: Lily Nyamwasa (Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith), Tace Bayliss and Nina Fallon (Revenge of the Sith)

Stass Allie was a Tholothian Jedi Master who became part of the Jedi Council towards the end of the Clone Wars as a result of the death of Adi Gallia.

  • Adaptational Job Change: She was a Force healing master and member of the Circle of Jedi Healers in Legends, but does nothing like it in canon.
  • Red Shirt: She has yet to have any appearances outside of her non-speaking film scenes, where her only significant scene features her being killed alongside dozens of other Jedi as a result of the execution of Order 66.
  • Rubber-Forehead Alien: She looks exactly like a human except for her purple eyes, scaled cranium, and head tendrils.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends, she was Adi Gallia's cousin.
  • Suspiciously Similar Substitute: She looks almost exactly like Adi Gallia and joined the Jedi Council after her death. In fact, she was originally intended to be Adi Gallia when the actress in The Phantom Menace did not return, but looked sufficiently different enough to become a different character.

    Coleman Kcaj 

Master Coleman Kcaj

Species: Ongree

Portrayed by: CGI

Coleman Kcaj was an Ongree Jedi Master who joined the Jedi Council late in the Clone Wars.

  • The Cameo: He tends to make brief appearances in The Clone Wars.
  • He Who Must Not Be Heard: He has yet to speak in any canon source (or even a Legends source).
  • Humanoid Alien: Ongree like Kcaj have the basic humanoid body type, but a triangular head with the eyes at the bottom of the face on the side with a mouth in the middle.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Same as Master Trebor above, "Kcaj" is the reverse of Jack, the name of Robert Coleman’s son.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: A list of Jedi who survived Order 66 in Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith lists Kcaj among them. His eventual fate is currently unknown.


Master Yaddle

Species: Unknown (same as Yoda)

Homeworld: Unknown

Portrayed by: Phil Eason
Appearances: The Phantom Menace

Yaddle was a female Jedi Council member from the same species as Yoda. She served on the Jedi Council during the invasion of Naboo, but was no longer on the Council when the Clone Wars began.

  • Adaptation Personality Change: In Legends, Yaddle was a Badass Pacifist who favored the Force over lightsaber combat, acted as a surrogate grandmother to Padawans, and consecrated her life to the Order to the point of performing a selfless Heroic Sacrifice. In stark contrast, while little is known about her career in canon, it seems at some point she became uninterested in the galactic affairs and left the Council to an unknown fate.
  • Little Green Men: She belongs to the same unidentified species as Yoda.
  • The Mentor: Just like in the Legends continuity, she has been established as the Master of fellow Jedi Council member Oppo Rancisis.
  • Pointy Ears: A trait of her species.
  • Really 700 Years Old: According to this article, she was 477 when Naboo was invaded.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, she was killed on a mission before the Clone Wars, which eventually led to her seat being taken by Shaak Ti. In canon, she's not on the Council after The Phantom Menace because she simply decided to take a less active role in the Order's affairs. How much longer she lived after her resignation is another story, but Greez from Jedi: Fallen Order speculates that she may have survived Order 66.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: At the moment, there is no explanation in canon as to what happened to her after she resigned from the Jedi Council. In The Mandalorian, Ahsoka Tano claims that Yoda and the Child are the only members of their species that she knows, implying that Yaddle was not around by the time Ahsoka joined the Jedi Order.

    Oppo Rancisis 

Master Oppo Rancisis

Species: Thisspiasian

Homeworld: Thisspias

Portrayed by: Jerome Blake

Oppo Rancisis was a Thisspiasian Jedi Master on the Council during the blockade of Naboo and the Clone Wars.

  • Adaptational Alternate Ending: In Legends, he died in the Clone Wars against the Dark Acolyte Sora Bulq. In canon, as Bulq never turned to the Dark Side, Rancisis survived both the Clone Wars and Order 66 and was apparently never found by the Empire.
  • Adaptational Wimp: In Legends, Oppo was a Genius Bruiser who didn't even need a lightsaber to wreak havoc, being adept not only in military strategy, but also unarmed fighting and unconventional Force powers like Malacia and Battle Meditation. It's very telling that the Dark Acolyte Sora Bulq, who had faced Dooku and Windu without fear, preferred to send an entire Anzati assassin team against Rancisis and only attack him In the Back while distracted rather than trying luck in a singles duel. In canon, Rancisis keeps his immense strategical abilities, but he also seems to be a full Non-Action Guy without any special Force talents.
  • Adaptation Personality Change: Dialogue by Yoda in Legends implied Oppo had his own personality quirks and used to be somewhat of a troublesome Jedi. In canon, he is just an archetypical wise master.
  • The Cameo: He tends to make these in the Jedi Council scenes in the Prequel Trilogy and The Clone Wars.
  • Multi Armed Multi Tasking: Thisspiasians have two pairs of arms, with Rancisis keeping his second pair hidden under his robes.
  • Really 700 Years Old: At the time of the Blockade of Naboo, Rancisis was 174 years old. However, Light of the Jedi retcons him as being much older, taking place about two hundred years before the Skywalker Saga and him already being a Jedi Master on the Council at that time.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: In Legends he was a practitioner of Battle Meditation. While he is confirmed to be an adept tactician, there is no word on whether he can amplify it with the Force as he could in Legends.
  • Snake People: He is a Thisspiasian, a long-lived snakelike (yet rather hairy) species.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, he was killed by the fallen Jedi Sora Bulq late into the Clone Wars. However, there's no word of Sora Bulq ever turning to the Dark Side in canon, and issue 19 of Darth Vader: Dark Lord of the Sith shows a list of Jedi who survived the execution of Order 66, with Rancisis among them.
  • The Strategist: Just like his Legends counterpart, Rancisis is mentioned to be a "tactical mastermind".

    Yarael Poof 

Master Yarael Poof

Species: Quermian

Homeworld: Quermia

Portrayed by: CGI

Yarael Poof was a Quermian member of the Jedi Council during the invasion of Naboo.

  • Adaptational Wimp: His canonical version is a very minor character without any showing, rendering his official talents in diplomacy and illusions an Informed Ability. In Legends, he was possibly the most gifted Jedi telepath of his time, as well as an expert in telekinesis and battle meditation and a renowned duelist.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: As a Quermian, he has a secondary brain in his chest cavity. He also has no spine despite being humanoid. And according to the Phantom Menace Eyewitness Visual Guide, his lack of a nose is due to being able to 'smell' with his hands.
  • Bus Crash: According to All There in the Manual, he died in a mission after the events of The Phantom Menace. Lucas removed him from Attack of the Clones because he worried audiences would confuse him for the similar-looking Kaminoans.
  • 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 the pairs hidden underneath his robes.
  • Schrödinger's Canon: The circumstances of his death. The Legends graphic novel Zam Wessell shows that he died between the events of The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones, being forced to sacrifice himself to stop a rogue general from destroying Coruscant with a Doomsday Device. This hasn't been confirmed as canon under the new continuity, but it hasn't been contradicted either, as his fate is still officially given as KIA before the Clone Wars.
  • Unfortunate Names: In British slang, "poof" is a derogatory term for "homosexual", similar to "fag" in American English.


How well does it match the trope?
