    Luminara Unduli 

Master Luminara Unduli
"Gentlemen, if you are quite finished, we have a battle to begin."

Species: Mirialan

Homeworld: Mirial

Portrayed by: Mary Oyaya (Attack of the Clones), Fay David (Revenge of the Sith)
Voiced by: Olivia d'Abo (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars | Revenge of the Sith | Rebelsnote 

"We suffer a great many losses in these battles..."

Luminara Unduli was a Mirialan Jedi Master during the final days of the Jedi Order. She commanded the 41st Elite Corps of the Grand Army of the Republic and was the master of Padawan learner Barriss Offee. Together, they fought in numerous battlefields of the Clone Wars before Offee turned against the Jedi Order and bombed the Jedi Temple. At the end of the war, Unduli fought during the Battle of Kashyyyk. She was arrested and executed after Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine issued Order 66 and destroyed the Jedi Order.

  • Action Girl: Luminara is a powerful and skilled Jedi Master. She fought in numerous battles of the Clone Wars (even managing to engage in a lightsaber duel with Asajj Ventress) and survived the execution of Order 66. However, she ended up being both imprisoned and executed by the Galactic Empire many years later.
  • Ascended Extra: She receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Order with small screen time and zero lines.
  • Badass in Distress:
  • Badass Teacher: She served the role as this to Barriss Offee.
  • Bait-and-Switch Comment: In "Cloak of Darkness", Luminara told Ventress that she recognized Count Dooku's teachings in Ventress's fighting style, which the assassin took as a compliment. Then, Luminara added that she found Ventress's version "unrefined, amateurish, sloppy".
  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: Averted in Rebels. Her corpse is in horrible condition when Kanan and Ezra find it on display in the Spire. Her eyes and nose have rotted away, she's looking more gaunt than when she was alive and her skin is dried up (possibly from being frozen). The only thing that makes her recognizable now is her Mirialan chin tattoos.
  • Dead All Along: Her appearance in Rebels is this — she was dead before Kanan arrived on Stygeon Prime, and the Inquisitor was faking her survival to draw him and other surviving Jedi into a trap.
  • Dead Guy on Display: The Inquisitor has her body mummified in some kind of casket in the Imperial Prison on Stygeon Prime. Thus, any Jedi who comes to free her senses her presence, although they note something is wrong with it, but do not realize she is already dead until they actually reach her cell and the Inquisitor springs his trap.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She is shown to have a sharp yet subtle wit. Mostly whenever Barriss and Ahsoka aren't around.
  • Despair Event Horizon: Judging from how she acted in the recording of her execution, she hit this sometime before her death.
  • Eye Scream: During her lightsaber 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: Although, she's more attractive in a classically beautiful way instead of being sexualized.
  • Lady of War: Her fighting style is rather gracious. The fact that she has an English accent also helps in this respect.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Meaningful Name: She is a Jedi Master whose name means "light".
  • Not So Stoic: In "Weapons Factory", Luminara's relief and joy are very visible when she sees that Barriss is still alive after having thought that she was dead. Although, she quickly gets herself back under control.
  • The Mentor: To Barriss Offee.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, she was killed immediately on Kashyyyk during the execution of Order 66. In the Canon (as revealed via Rebels), she survived the Jedi Purge and was merely captured and imprisoned by the Empire rather than being executed ,or so the Empire would lead you to believe. By the time Kanan and Ezra came to rescue her, she was Dead All Along and her corpse is used as bait to lure in other surviving Jedi.
  • The Stoic: She keeps a tight leash on her emotions, having fully embraced the Jedi principals of no attachment. While she cares for Barriss, Luminara would accept it as her time and the will of the Force if she dies.
    Luminara: It's not that I gave up, Skywalker -— but unlike you, when the time comes, I am prepared to let my student go. Can you say the same?
  • Underestimating Badassery: In "Cloak of Darkness", Luminara believes Ventress is little more than an unrefined assassin and ignores Ahsoka's warnings that Ventress is much deadlier and savvy than Luminara believes. She nearly ends up killed during a lightsaber duel she had with Ventress and later acknowledges that she should have listened to Ahsoka's warnings.
    Luminara: This assassin, I've… I've never faced an adversary like her. I should have listened to your advice.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: She belittled Ventress's fighting style as an "unrefined, amateurish, sloppy" imitation of Count Dooku's own, which was a Berserk Button for the assassin of the Sith.

    Quinlan Vos 

Master Quinlan Vos

Species: Kiffar/Human

Homeworld: Kiffu

Portrayed by: ???
Voiced by: Al Rodrigo (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: The Phantom Menace | The Clone Wars | Dark Disciple

"I am not your kind. I do not feed off vengeance. I am a Jedi."

Quinlan Vos was a Kiffar Jedi Master with a reputation for not following the rules and skill at undercover operations. He was an expert tracker and joined Obi-Wan Kenobi in the hunt for Ziro the Hutt during the Clone Wars after he escaped from prison. Later in the war, Vos was tasked by the Jedi Council to assassinate Count Dooku with the aid of Asajj Ventress.

  • Adaptational Alternate Ending: In Legends, while he does have to carry the burden of being one of the last Jedi (as well as having lost many friends/allies and Aayla) and thus becoming a fugitive, he's at least surrounded by Tholme, T'ra Saa, Khaleen, and his newborn son with Khaleen (and also Vilmarh). In the Canon, Vos is confirmed to have survived the Jedi Purge once again, but he doesn't have his friends to keep him company: Tholme has been long dead, Vilmarh is at least hinted to exist, T'ra Saa does not exist, and there's no telling if he managed to move on and find love with Khaleen (due to Asajj Ventress's death) if she even exists either.
  • Alien Blood: One of the most notable biological features that distinguish Kiffar from humans is the presence of scarlet blood.
  • Ascended Extra: Quinlan was originally just a nameless background character that appeared back in The Phantom Menace with small screen time and zero lines. In The Clone Wars, he receives a fleshed out expanded role.
  • Barbarian Longhair: He has a rather long and slightly unkempt-looking rasta-like hairdo. He also 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.
  • Blessed with Suck: He has a Force power known as psychometry, which allows him to see past events that an object was involved in by touching it. Unfortunately, because it isn't voluntary, people who know he has this can take advantage of it by giving him an object that he doesn't want to psychometrize on purpose. Count Dooku does exactly this by telling Vos that Ventress killed Tholme and then leaves him in a cell with Tholme's lightsaber when he refuses to believe him, so if Vos wants to escape using the lightsaber, then he's gonna have to see how his lover killed his master.
  • Canon Immigrant: A rather interesting case. He was a nameless background character in The Phantom Menace with about five seconds of screentime and was not intended to be a Jedi. However, the comics from Legends continuity 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 (albeit he is mentioned offhandedly in a conversation, however). He finally appeared in The Clone Wars, which expanded his role in the Canon.
    • Dark Lord of the Sith reveals that he managed to survive after the execution of Order 66 in the Canon, just like the version from the Legends continuity. It's that or his body wasn't found.
  • A Day in the Limelight: He is one of the leads of Dark Disciple alongside Asajj Ventress. The novel is based on an eight episode story arc of The Clone Wars that was written but not animated before the installment was canceled.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His sarcastic sense of humor results in some hilarious Snark-to-Snark Combat when he teamed up with Obi-Wan. His partnership with Ventress is likewise filled with snark.
  • Dynamic Entry: He likes these. When arriving at the Jedi Temple in "Hunt for Ziro", he didn't wait for his ride to land, he simply jumped down to the platform. And instead of knocking or using the Force to open the lock, he entered Mama the Hutt's lair by cutting an "X" in the door with his lightsaber and kicking the pieces in.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: It’s not an actual appearance, but Aayla mentioned him in "Jedi Crash". To make it even more subtle, she referred to him not by the name, just as her Master.
  • Facial Markings: He has a yellow line running across his face, which is a traditional marking done by his people.
  • Forgiven, but Not Forgotten: At the end of Dark Disciple, the Jedi Council has come to accept his redemption and called off their plans to execute him, but that has not changed the fact that he has caused a lot of damage while under the Dark Side's influence and Vos himself acknowledges this. As such, he's put under surveillance and rehabilitation (especially in Dark Side hotspots such as Dathomir) for an undetermined amount of time to make sure he doesn't slip and try to betray them again.
  • Handwraps of Awesome: He has most of his hands and lower arms wrapped in grey cloth.
  • Heel–Face Revolving Door: In Dark Disciple, as he struggles with trying to reconcile his Jedi upbringing, determination to destroy the Sith, and feelings for Ventress. He ends on Face, but only after killing two Jedi, including his best friend Desh, and numerous Clone Troopers.
  • Human Alien: He is a Kiffar, a species that resemble humans and who traditionally paint on Facial Markings and have scarlet blood.
  • I Work Alone: He prefers to do his undercover work alone and without assistance. Being assigned to work with Asajj Ventress to assassinate Count Dooku makes him particularly uncomfortable.
  • Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Lighter and Softer: His portrayal in The Clone Wars is very light hearted compared to the version from the Legends continuity. The writers of The Clone Wars decided to go back to his personality from his earlier non-canon comic book 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. This gets subverted when he goes back to his later characterization in Dark Disciple.
  • Meaningful Name: As a Jedi Master, Quinlan has amazing physical conditioning and his first name is Gaelic for "athletic".
  • The Mentor: He trained Aayla Secura to become a Jedi Knight and eventually a Jedi Master.
  • Opposites Attract: His fun and friendly personality is what wins him the love of the no-nonsense, cold, and distant Asajj Ventress.
  • Parental Substitute: In "Jedi Crash", Aayla mentions to Ahsoka that Vos was like a father to her.
  • Reverse Mole: A specialty of his. Vos excels at undercover work, going undercover for long periods of time to bust up criminal operations. His psychometry aids greatly in this task, since he can use it to gather information and evidence really quickly.
  • Psychometry: Quinlan has the ability to perceive others' memories when touching objects they had contacted. In "Hunt for Ziro", he used his retrocognition to confirm that Ziro the Hutt had been in the Hutts' club not long before he and Obi-Wan arrived to Nal Hutta.
    • His retrocognition becomes important in Dark Disciple when he gets captured by Dooku. The Count reveals to him that Ventress lied about the death of Tholme, as she was the one to kill him. When Vos refuses to believe him, Dooku leaves Tholme's lightsaber in his cell, knowing that Vos' doubt will eventually force him to touch and verify the identity of Tholme's killer.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: His outfit lacks sleeves, showing off his muscular arms.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: With Ventress, of all people.
  • Troll: In Dark Disciple, he instructs a protocol droid called Blue to list every synonym for his name in every language he knows. Just for the heck of it.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: He and Obi-Wan may exchange a lot of insulting snark, but they are still good friends.
  • You Killed My Father: Invoked. Ventress tells Quinlan that Dooku killed his master Tholme in order to make his rage help him embrace the Dark Side. As it turns out, it was Ventress herself who killed Tholme — after Tholme surrendered to her. When Quinlan found out, he was very upset.

    Aayla Secura 

Master Aayla Secura
"Don't lose a thousand lives just to save one."

Species: Twi'lek (Rutian)

Homeworld: Ryloth

Portrayed by: Amy Allen (films)
Voiced by: Jennifer Hale (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars | Son of Dathomir | Revenge of the Sith

"Sometimes it takes courage to stick to one's beliefs, young Padawan."

Aayla Secura was a Rutian Twi'lek Jedi Master that served as a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. Prior to the Clone Wars, Secura learned the ways of the Force as the Padawan learner of Jedi Master Quinlan Vos. With the outbreak of civil war between the Galactic Republic and the Separatists, Secura and her fellow Jedi supported the Republic by becoming officers in its newly-formed military. She was a Jedi General and commanded the clone troopers of the 327th Star Corps, with Commander Bly serving at Secura's side. Throughout the war, Secura fought alongside her clone troopers in multiple battles across the galaxy, from Geonosis to Quell, Coruscant, and Felucia. As the war drew to an end, the clone troopers were brainwashed and forced by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine to execute Order 66, resulting in a sudden purge of the Jedi Order at the hands of their own clone troopers. As a result, Secura was among the first casualties of the purge, having been shot in the back repeatedly by Bly and several other clone troopers.

  • Action Girl: She is one of the few survivors of the two hundred Jedi who went to Geonosis. She also manages to live through the Clone Wars via fighting in numerous major battles, only to get killed towards the end of the war following the execution of Order 66.
  • Alien Hair: Her "head tails", which are called lekku.
  • Ascended Extra: She receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Order with small screen time and zero lines.
  • Bald Women: Twi'leks don't grow hair, unless you count her head-tails as "hair".
  • Bare Your Midriff: Her toned stomach is exposed by the outfit she wears.
  • Blue-Skinned Space Babe: She fits the mold nearly to a "T".
  • Canon Immigrant: She first appeared in the non-canon Republic comic book series and was included in Attack of the Clones, The Clone Wars, and Revenge of the Sith as a reference to that Legends comic book series.
  • Custom Uniform of Sexy: Her outfit is by far the most revealing of any Jedi, though surprisingly modest for a Twi'lek.
  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Jedi Crash" and "Defenders of Peace".
  • Dropped a Bridge on Her: Even though she was a prominent character in The Clone Wars, she was killed by her Clone Troopers in Revenge of the Sith as a result of them being brainwashed into executing Order 66. She wasn't even able to defend herself.
  • Everything Sounds Sexier in French: As with most of the other Twi'leks in the Canon, she speaks with a French accent.
  • Fanservice Extra: She was this in Attack of the Clones as she had no lines and only appears briefly in a few scenes. In the days following the release of Attack of the Clones, many of the Star Wars fans went online to find out who "that sexy Twi'lek Jedi girl" was.
  • Fashionable Asymmetry: She does the long sleeve/no sleeve version of the trope.
  • Impossible Hourglass Figure: Aayla's definitely got a nice figure, that's for sure.
  • In the Back: Her clone troopers open fire on her while her back is turned to them and keep firing into her back long after she has gone down.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Master Swordswoman: She is a master of Form IV, also known as Ataru, which focuses on acrobatic combat and deflecting blaster bolts.
  • Ms. Fanservice: She is a very beautiful, blue-skinned female Rutian Twi'lek who wears a revealing yet form-fitting outfit that highlights her very voluptuous yet athletic body, nice legs, toned stomach, and large breasts. Although compared to other Twi'leks, she is pretty modest.
  • Most Common Super Power: Definitely, and surprisingly emphasized for a usually modest Jedi.
  • Older Than They Look: In-Universe, to become a Jedi Master you have to fully train at least one Padawan to knighthood, which in most cases takes close to twenty years, meaning logically, most Masters are at least in their forties. Logically, Aayla is forty, at least - though Jedi do seem to age slower than most.
  • She's Got Legs: She wears an outfit that highlights her long toned legs.

    Jocasta Nu 

Master Jocasta Nu
"The Force is eternal. It cannot be ended, it cannot be stopped, not so long as life exists. It will find its vessels, it always does. You know this. There are others, waiting out in the Galaxy."

Species: Human (Coruscanti)

Homeworld: Coruscant

Portrayed by: Alethea McGrath (films)
Voiced by: Flo Di Re (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: Dark Temple | Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars | Dark Lord of the Sith

"If an item does not appear in our records, it does not exist!"

Jocasta Nu was a Jedi Master who served as the Chief Librarian of the Jedi Archives during the Clone Wars. Jocasta survived the fall of the Jedi Order and sought to preserve the secrets and history of the Order while also locating Force-sensitive children to rebuild the Jedi.

  • Action Girl: It's mostly an informed trait. However, 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 skill.
  • Ascended Extra: She receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars and Dark Lord of the Sith after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Order with small screen time and lines.
  • Badass Bookworm: She retired from active service to take care of the Jedi Archives.
  • Berserk Button: Don't read the part of the Archives that you're not supposed to know and that only she can now. Don't call any part of the Archives—even the part of the Archives you're supposed to be banned from—boring, or Force forbid, damage the Archives in some way.
  • 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.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber.
  • Never Mess with Granny: When she says don't look at the higher Jedi archives, she means it. Even if the Jedi Order is gone. Just ask the Grand Inquisitor.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: According to the Grand Inquisitor, she refused to grant him entry to the higher archives in a condescending fashion, which ended up being a major factor to his turn to the Dark Side. Though he could be an Unreliable Narrator, we already know that Jocasta is snobby about being chief librarian. In fairness, the Sentinel isn't supposed to have access to that knowledge. Continuing to act this way in response to the Grand Inquisitor reading the archives results in not only her eventual death, but also the Sith getting the list of Force-sensitive children and a Sith Holocron.
  • Pride: Despite being a Jedi, she can't help but have immense pride in the knowledge gathered in the Jedi Archives. Obi-Wan suggesting that the archives might be missing information annoys her greatly.
    • Pride Before a Fall: Her arrogance ultimately comes at a cost. Some weeks after the execution of Order 66, she returns to the Jedi Temple to grab information that can't fall into the wrong hands as well as preserving the information for future generations to come, which would've worked out great if she hadn't decided to blow her cover by confronting the Grand Inquisitor to get him to stop reading the books she banned him from reading.
  • Retired Badass: She used to be a member of the Jedi Council.
  • She Knows Too Much: The focus of the second arc of Dark Lord of the Sith is hunting down Jocasta before she can pass on knowledge of the Jedi.
  • Skewed Priorities: She fails to preserve top-secret Jedi knowledge and live on in hiding because she wanted to beat up the Grand Inquisitor for finding her collection boring.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In Legends, she was originally killed by Vader personally during the attack on the Jedi Temple. In the Canon, she managed to escape and was on the run before eventually being killed by Darth Vader.

  • In-Series Nickname: His students refer to him as "the Troll".
  • Laser Blade: He wields a green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Master Swordsman: He is regarded as one of the best swordsmen in the Jedi Order and is thus responsible for training new students in lightsaber techniques.
  • Sdrawkcab Name: Of Nick Gillard, the stuntman who portrayed him and worked as the stunt coordinator for the Prequel Trilogy.

    Tera Sinube 

Master Tera Sinube

Species: Cosian

Homeworld: Cosia

Voiced by: Greg Baldwin
Appearances: Dooku: Jedi Lost | The Clone Wars

"The value of moving slowly is that one can always clearly see the way ahead."

Tera Sinube was an elderly Cosian Jedi Master who, instead of fighting in the war, turned his efforts to studying Coruscant's criminal underworld and training future generations of Jedi.

  • Badass Teacher: He drew his lightsaber and stood protectively in front of the younglings he had been training during Anakin's lightsaber duel with the traitorous Barriss Offee.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: He sounds like a senile fool until that precise moment he cracks the mystery on his own.
  • The Cameo: He occasionally shows up in the background. Two of his most famous ones showed him training the younglings that were introduced during the Young Jedi arc.
  • Comic-Book Fantasy Casting: He was modeled on Takashi Shimura.
  • Cool Old Guy: A skilled detective and master swordsman who is old friends with equally Cool Old Guy Yoda.
  • Eccentric Mentor: He teaches Ahsoka to take things more slowly and think through her actions, a lesson which largely sticks, despite Master Sinube's slightly senile demeanor.
  • Expy: Of Sato from Stray Dog, the experienced professional who guides and gives advice to the hotheaded rookie (Ahsoka being his Murakami).
  • Great Detective: He was this in his youth. Now, he's a Retired Badass.
  • Laughing at Your Own Jokes: He finds his own fishy Pun amusing.
  • Let's Get Dangerous!: He spends most of "Lightsaber Lost" being a Great Detective. That is until the criminal pulls out a lightsaber and he proceeds to utterly trounce her.
  • Lightsaber Cane: His silver-bladed lightsaber is hidden in his cane, allowing him to easily pull it out and surprise his opponents.
  • Old Master: Don't underestimate him because of his age. He is still a capable trainer, detective, and combatant.
  • The Profiler: He was once a Great Detective. In his old age, he's more into theoretical work.
  • Retired Badass: An older Jedi Master who once sat on the Jedi Council, Sinube has since dedicated himself to training younger Jedi and hadn't gone into the field for years until Ahsoka asked for his help.
  • 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.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He has yet to be given a fate in the Canon.

  • Posthumous Character: He is only seen in flashbacks to Ventress's past, having died many years before The Clone Wars.
  • 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 Death World, who was very powerful in the Force, took (or attempted to take) them as their apprentices without the Council's approval and, despite its disapproval respectively, they both died before they could finish the training of the children and both apprentices eventually fell to the Dark Side.
  • Spirit Advisor: Duirng Jedi Lost, Narec speaks frequently to Ventress and tries to sway her away from becoming Dooku's apprentice. She believes it is all in her head, but it is suggested that Narec was in fact speaking to her from the Cosmic Force.

  • 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 Lamb: He was only needed to remind the viewers 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.

Species: Human

Appearances: Dark Disciple (mention only)

Tholme was the Jedi Master of Quinlan Vos. Early in the Clone Wars, he was killed presumably by Count Dooku himself.

    Kirak Infil'a 

Master Kirak Infil'a

Species: Human

Kirak Infil'a was a Jedi Master and survivor of the execution of Order 66, having taken the Barash vow to stay in isolation at a monastery on the River moon of Al'doleem and interact only with the Force long before the execution of his fellow Jedi. Shortly after, he was confronted by Darth Vader, who intended to kill Infil'a and take his kyber crystal for his own.

  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Despite being a normal human, his skin is grey. Presumably, it's a mutation.
  • The Atoner: Those who take the Barash vow do so as a form of penance. Exactly what Infil'a wishes to atone for is unknown.
  • Badass Beard: He's a Jedi Master and he's got a beard. What more can we say?
  • Fatal Flaw: Despite being a Jedi, he lacks patience. He allows Vader to bypass some of his defenses to fight him faster, and rather than making sure the Sith Lord is dead, Infil'a heads toward civilization to get his ship back and hunt down the second Sith and gets rather impatient when he discovers it needs repairs. Had he not been so quick to move on and assume Vader died, Infil'a could have finished Vader off instead of leading the Sith to a city that Vader flooded to kill him.
  • Force-Choke: This is what Vader uses in order to kill him.
  • Forced to Watch: Vader uses the Force to hold him over the capital of Al'doleem and watch as it floods, killing thousands of people whom Infil'a had desperately tried to save.
  • Let's Fight Like Gentlemen: Believes that a fight between a Jedi and Sith should be a one on one affair. While he does expect a darksider to be underhanded and dirty in a fight, he thinks it should only involve the two fighters. Vader dissagrees and uses a Human Shield while also causing a damn to break to distract master Kirak while also forcing Kirak to expend his strength saving everyone so he can Force-Choke the weakened Jedi master and show him the deaths of the people Kirak failed to save.
  • Mysterious Past: Why his only purpose as a Jedi is to fight and why he took the Barash vow are both mysteries.
  • Oh, Crap!: He panics when he senses Vader is still alive and realizes he led him to the capital city of Al'doleem, putting thousands of lives at risk, including the family helping Infil'a.
  • Old Soldier: He looks to be rather old, but that makes him no less of a Knight. According to his file, Infil'a's sole purpose as a Jedi is to fight.
  • Skilled, but Naïve: Kirak is a powerful fighter and a hardened warrior but it's been centuries since Jedi have had to fight powerful darksiders like the sith so he doesn't expect Vader to be so ruthless as to use innocents as shields and hostages. Crosses over with Good Cannot Comprehend Evil, because he truly and unironically believed as sith would keep their fight a one on one lightsaber duel while not involving outsiders and he really had no idea what it truly means to be The Unfettered.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: With scars, especially a large X on his chest.

    Cyslin Myr 

Master Cyslin Myr

Species: Mirialan

Appearances: Jedi of the Republicnote 

Cyslin Myr was a Mirialan Jedi Master who trained Mace Windu in the ways of the Force.

  • Foil: To T'ra Saa, Mace's master in Legends. T'ra Saa was calm and was where Mace got his compassionate side from, while Cyslin Myr appears to be where he got his authoritative side from.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Her whereabouts in the couple last decades of the Republic are currently unknown to the readers.

    Lene Kostana 

Master Lene Kostana

Species: Altiri

Voiced by: Carol Monda
Appearances: Dooku: Jedi Lost

A Jedi Master dedicated to hunting down and collecting Sith artifacts from across the galaxy.

  • Adventurer Archaeologist: She spends her time travelling the galaxy searching for Sith artifacts to destroy or contain so that their relics cannot be used against the Jedi in future conflicts.
  • Anti-Hero: Her anti-Sith efforts involve ignoring Council directives and utilizing techniques forbidden to the Jedi, including using emotions like anger and hate to reach out to the dark side and use it to track Sith artifacts.
  • The Cassandra: Believes that one day the Sith will return and that the Jedi Order must prepare for that day by finding, studying, and destroying all their artifacts and creations so that they cannot be used against the Jedi in the future wars. The Council views that belief as extreme, although they allow her to search for Sith artifacts and store them in a secure vault in the Temple for safekeeping, albeit without study.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Dooku. She initially taught Dooku as one of his mentors, but once he became a knight, they simply became friends and comrades.
  • The Mentor: While Sifo-Dyas was her Padawan, she also frequently worked with Dooku on missions when Yoda was too busy with Council business to leave Coruscant.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Her encouragement of Dooku to touch the Dark Side of the Force on Asusto in an effort to sense Sith artifacts on the planet leads to him massacring a group of Abyssian smugglers and later unleashing a burst of Force lightening that killed the Presagers of Hakotei. This was one of Dooku's earliest and most violent touches with the Dark Side, which she helped cover up out of fear the Jedi Council would shut her missions down. This helped set Dooku on the path to becoming a Sith Lord.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Has a frequent tendency to engage in this, ignoring the Jedi Council's directives if she believes them to be too restricting or interfering in her ability to accomplish a mission.
  • Uncertain Doom: When he was a Padawan, Dooku has a vision of the future which includes many small possible snippets of events to come, one of which was Kostana being killed by a clone commander named Crane during Order 66. However, not everything he saw in that vision came to pass, so it is unclear if that is her ultimate fate.


How well does it match the trope?
