Shadday Potkin

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shadday_potkin_rots_tv_tropes.jpg

Species: Human

Portrayed by: ???

A Jedi Master that had initially survived Order 66, but she was killed a month later at a gathering with other Jedi on Kessel by Darth Vader.


  • Crazy-Prepared: Subverted, she thinks she is, by having a cortosis blade, capable of shorting out Vader's lightsaber, but she has no lightsaber of her own to use once that happens, and never considered what would happen if Vader got his hand on that blade and used it against the other lightsabers.
  • Neck Snap: She used a cortosis blade to short out Vader's lightsaber, thinking this would leave him helpless. He responds by grabbing her by the throat and breaking her neck.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: She only called the other Jedi over because she thought running away was dumb and they could beat Vader together. Her arrogance ultimately costs the lives of everyone, including herself.
  • Pride: She uses a gathering of surviving Jedi to lure Vader into a trap. She believed this would be enough to kill him. She was wrong.
  • Tuckerization: Her first name is derived from one of the designers of Dressing a Galaxy, Usana Shadday.

Koffi Arana

Species: Human

Portrayed by: Gervais Koffi

A Jedi Master that had initially survived Order 66, but was later killed at a gathering with other Jedi on Kessel by Darth Vader.


  • He Who Fights Monsters: He proposes that the group should turn to the dark side, because perhaps the only way to beat the Sith is like fighting fire with fire.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: Turns to the dark side within minutes of Vader's arrival while trying to fight him, even mudering a fellow Jedi who tries to stop him and showing no remorse.
  • Retcon: All There in the Manual originally intended for him to be Jedi Master Qu Rahn. He ended up becoming associated with Gervais Koffi's actor in Revenge of the Sith and became a new character named Koffi Arana.
  • Tuckerization: His first name is derived from his own first name.
  • Underestimating Badassery: A fatal case, giving it's Vader he underestimates, multiple times (although to be fair, the last time Vader was pulling a Wounded Gazelle Gambit).

    Roblio Darté 

Roblio Darté

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roblio_darte_republic_tv_tropes.jpg

Species: Human

Appears in: Republic | Purge

A Jedi Master that had initially survived Order 66, but was later killed at a gathering with other Jedi on Kessel by Darth Vader.


  • Ascended Extra: Wasn't even mentioned by name during his first appearance, but is one of the last Jedi standing in "Star Wars: Purge".
  • Badass Beard: Sports a pretty long one.
  • Bearer of Bad News: His one scene in "Star Wars Republic Republic" is reporting a costly battle to the council.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Shows some interest in the idea of trying to assassinate Palpatine, but doesn't let these ideas corrupt him like Koffi, or Shadday.
  • Heroic Second Wind: He, Choi and Farr nearly defeat Vader (mainly through telekinesis) after losing all of their lightsabers but Choi's, and their fellow Jedi.
  • Hold the Line: As Vader's clone reinforcements arrive, he uses the force to lift up a piece of scrap metal and tires to do this for Choi, but Choi tries to do it for him instead of taking the opportunity to flee.
  • Laser Blade: He uses a blue-bladed crossguard lightsaber. Yep, he used a crossguard lightsaber before it was cool.
  • The Remnant: Sees the Jedi's mission as being to save the defunct Republic.
  • Shellshocked Veteran: Implied, as he says they strayed from the Jedi path when they became generals, and is subdued when speaking of the war to the Jedi council.

    Jastus Farr 

Jastus Farr

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jastus_farr_purge_tv_tropes.jpg

Species: Unknown

Appears in: Purge

A Jedi Master that had initially survived Order 66, but was later killed at a gathering with other Jedi on Kessel by Darth Vader.


  • Armor-Piercing Question: He gets two of them. The first is a fairly rhetorical one, but the second is directed at Shaddady and just a few panels before The Reveal that Vader is coming.
    Jastus: Can one take the dark path to achieve good? Or must the dark side inevitably corrupt the good that one hopes to achieve? So the great Masters have always said. 'Dark path, dark end.' That's the common wisdom. Is it the truth, I wonder?
    Jastus: "What is it you were looking for when you called us together, Master Shadday?"
  • Blank White Eyes: His species seem to lack pupils and irises.
  • Genius Bruiser: The most imposing of the gathered Jedi, but well-spoken and thoughtful.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: Downplayed. Sideburns appear to be the only hair he has, and he’s one of the cooler heads present, but does consider an attack.
  • In the Back: Injures Vader with a strike from behind.
  • Laser Blade: He uses a double-sided green-bladed lightsaber.
  • Mythology Gag: He's based off of the Jedi Brute enemies from the Revenge of the Sith video game.
  • The Stoic: His face never shows much emotion even as he launches into a complex, philosophical debate about whether or not they can try to assassinate the Sith without falling to the dark side.
  • Surprisingly Sudden Death: Right as he, Tsui Choi and Roblio Darte gain an upper hand, clone troopers appear on the catwalks, and the next panel shows Farr being hit by their fire as Tsui Choi deflects laser bolts and Roblio Darte finds cover.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Of all of the other Jedi in the group, we've never met him before (not counting the Jedi Brute enemies from the Revenge of the Sith video game).

Ma'kis'shalaas

Species: Kajain'sa'Nikto

Homeworld: Kintan

A Jedi Knight that had initially survived Order 66, but was later killed at a gathering with other Jedi on Kessel by Darth Vader.


  • All There in the Manual: His backstory is in the guidebooks.
  • The Cameo: Appears first in Revenge of the Sith, though he doesn't do much.
  • Determined Defeatist: Doubts that an attempt to attack the Emperor will succeed but believes that it should be tried.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: While he always had the force, he couldn’t always use it to his full potential, being one of the very few Jedi who was recruited as an adult instead of an infant. This was allowed due to having already been trained in combat and honor by the morgukai warrior society, and the scarcity of Nikto Jedi. Before that he was an experienced hunter and soldier.
  • Hot-Blooded: A being of action, although more quiet than most.
  • Lethal Lava Land: Survived venturing through one he was forced to cross (and not expected to make it to the end of) after becoming dissilussioend with the morgukai and hoping his force sensitivity cold give him another path.
  • Old Soldier: His exact age is unclear, but he's a contemporary of Tsyr, who had a son in his late teens to early twenties about a decade before Order 66, and a veteran of many conflicts as both a Morgukai Warrior and a Jedi Knight.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Clashed with a fellow Morgukai named Tsyr, a former comrade of his, as a Jedi,

Species: Dorin

Homeworld: Kel Dor

Appears in: Republic | Purge

The niece of Jedi Master Plo Koon, she was also the Padawan of Jedi Master Salith and the master of Padawan Baylis Archan.


  • Break the Cutie: The death of her Padawan early in the Clone Wars.
  • Death In The Limelight: She first appeared in a flashback of an issue of the Stark-Hyperspace War arc of the Republic comic series. She receives a Purge oneshot comic to herself about how she died in the immediate aftermath Order 66.
  • Good Is Not Soft: She is a gentle and kind Jedi Knight, but she attacks Vader all-out.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: How Vader kills her.
  • Peaceful in Death: After Vader strikes her down, she has a vision of the future, seeing that a Rebellion will rise, Vader will turn against Sidious and kill him, and Vader's children will bring back the Jedi. Now knowing that the burden of the future is not on her shoulders, she dies in peace, much to the confusion of Vader and Sidious.
  • Remember the New Guy?: She's Plo Koon's niece, which you think would've been brought up more often in other works featuring Plo Koon.

The Tyrant's Fist

The Jedi Order

    Cho'na Bene 

Cho'na Bene

Species: Myneyrsh

A Jedi Knight that led an insurgency on Vaklin with two other Jedi in retaliation of Order 66. Through the combined efforts of Darth Vader and the local Imperial Security Bureau officials, Bene's public image was disgraced and he was assassinated.


  • Bizarre Alien Biology: His mouth is where his chin is.
  • Due to the Dead: After a battle with Vader calls out to take time off to burn their dead and drink to them, although this might Have been mocking.
  • Frontline General: Naturally for a Jedi, he effectively leads the Vaklin insurgents.
  • Laser Blade: Carries two and is pretty effective with them.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has four arms and is the bane of any clone troopers who face him on Vaklin.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Correctly (at least in the long term) tells Vader that he can’t erase the memory of the Jedi and that he’ll never feel peace without compassion. Obviously, Vader doesn’t listen.

The Galactic Empire

    Oniye Namada 

Major Oniye Namada

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/oniye_namada_purge_tv_tropes.jpg

Species: Human

Appears in: Purge: The Tyrant's Fist

"Whether we like it or not, there's nothing of the old ways to return to. Not even a trace."

The leading Imperial Security Bureau officer on Vaklin during its insurgency in the early years of the Empire. She worked with Darth Vader to eliminate the insurgency, which was headed by Jedi survivors of Order 66 including Jedi Knight Cho'na Bene.


  • Affably Evil: Major Namada. She may be a State Sec officer and commits actions that come with the job, but she's fairly amicable and casual to the locals and some of her colleagues, behavior which is comparable to, say, a police officer in real life. She's also friendly enough to a vendor that she talks with on a daily basis to advise him that he needs to stop giving leeway to rebels instead of threatening to arrest him or anything like that.
  • Ambiguously Brown: In comparison to her white colleagues, she's rather tan-looking. If her last name is any indication, she seems to be of Asian ethnicity—perhaps Japanese or Indian.
  • Anti-Villain: While Namada is an Imperial and she is supportive of questionable things including propaganda and censorship, assassination and conspiracy, destruction of ancient works, and so forth, she believes its within the best interest of the people and thinks that they're hurting themselves if they continue to follow the old ways, considering the state of Vaklin.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Towards the end, Namada expresses interest in sending her daughter to the new Imperial Education Center on Vaklin.
  • False Flag Operation: Since Namada is already known to the Vaklin public as an ISB officer, she disguises herself in Stormtrooper armor when she kills Bene so that people think it was an understandable situation of protecting a civilian from some loco rather than suspecting that it was a set-up and a conspiracy to kill the Jedi Knight, which would further sour civilian-Imperial relations than it already is.
  • How the Mighty Have Fallen: Since simply killing the rebel Jedi would just make a martyr of war out of them by the insurgents, Namada and the Imperials instead have Bene look like a drunken fool and make it look like his killing was to defend a civilian that looked like he was being harassed by him, allowing the Imperials to get away with it scotfree and ruining the image of the Jedi and thus the insurgency.
  • Majorly Awesome: She's a major in the Imperial Security Bureau.
  • Not So Above It All: An extremely minor case, but it's a bit funny at how immature and brief Namada's response in this conversation sounds in contrast to how professional and casual she is in the rest of the arc.
    Namada: Save me a sweet roll, Djon?
    Djon: Berry and tok nut — last of the morning batch!
    Namada: ...I hate tok nuts.
  • One-Shot Character: She only appears in the Purge: The Tyrant's Fist twoshot series.
  • Villain Has a Point: While her methods are obviously morally wrong, Namada points out in her reports that the locals being stuck in the past and giving up their lives to believe in the Jedi is hurting their future and won't get them out of their predicament.
  • Villain Protagonist: The series being about Vader, this is expected. Major Oniye Namada, an officer of the Imperial Security Bureau, is a villain deuteragonist by virtue of having an equal amount of covered perspective as our Dark Lord does.
