    Tyvokka 

Tyvokka

Species: Wookiee

Homeworld: Kashyyyk

Appears in: Republic (flashback only)

«Thank you, Plo, for giving me another opportunity to control my temper.»

The master of Plo Koon and numerous other Padawans. By the time Plo Koon's training was complete, Tyvokka held a seat on the Jedi High Council. During the Republic's bacta shortage crisis, he was sent on a mission to end Stark Collective's bacta raiding of Trade Federation ships, but lost his life. This mission resulted in the Stark-Hyperspace War, and Plo Koon succeeded Yvokka on the Jedi High Council in honor of his late master's dying wish.


  • Brutal Honesty: He makes his opinions and comments known even if he has no evidence to back up his claims or it's rude. Meanwhile, Plo Koon is a Nice Guy that is modest and polite, something that Tyvokka is annoyed by and makes sure his Padawan knows that.
  • Famous Last Words: After admonishing him one more time, he lays one more truth on his apprentice before he passes away on his deathbed.
  • Only a Flesh Wound: Despite being mortally wounded, he put off getting immediate medical attention and instead continued to provide war room tactics.
  • So Proud of You: Despite whatever he feels about Plo Koon, he is proud of him.

Species: Near-Human (speculated to be Sephi)

Appears in: Republic

  • The Ageless: Her Healing Factor effectively made her immortal.
  • Healing Factor: Her unique Force connection gives her one, though she loses it at the worst time when she transfers her Force reserves to Obi-Wan after being stabbed through the chest by Ventress. If not for having to aid Obi-Wan's escape that way, Fay would have been able to recover from even the wounds Ventress dealt her.
  • Mind over Matter: Even among the Jedi, Fay is notable for relying entirely on the Force when fighting. She stopped carrying a lightsaber when she was knighted.
  • One-Shot Character
  • Really 700 Years Old: Thanks to her Healing Factor, Fay is in the area of seven hundred years old.
  • Shrouded in Myth: Since completing her apprenticeship centuries ago, Fay has wandered the Outer Rim, solving conflicts wherever the Force takes her. Most Jedi don't believe she exists, but thanks to Yoda, who knew her personally when she was an apprentice, the Council knows better and keeps a close eye on all rumors about her appearance.
  • Space Elves: Her species is never stated, but she very closely resembles a Sephi.

    Tholme 

Tholme

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

Species: Human

Appears in: Republic

A male human, Tholme was a powerful Jedi who was skilled at manipulation, spying, and combat. His skills at subterfuge made him a vital part of secret Jedi missions, and key player in the Clone Wars. He trained both Quinlan Vos and Aalya Secura and had a close relationship with fellow Jedi Master T'ra Saa.

He is a major character in the Republic comic series.


  • Dark Is Not Evil: He wears dark robes, has a rather sinister appearance at times, and often takes actions that flirt with breaking the Jedi Code and the dark side, but he is a dedicated Jedi who seeks to uphold the values of the Republic.
  • Eye Scream: He lost his left eye dueling Count Dooku on Bakura shortly after the Battle of Geonosis.
  • Faking the Dead: A specialty of his: he can enter an Anzati Death Trance, which can fool his enemies into thinking him dead, only for him to emerge from it and wreck havoc on them when they least expect it.
  • Guile Hero: He specializes in creating complex plots, overseeing spies, and manipulating enemies of the Jedi.
  • Handicapped Badass: Averted: his right leg was crushed by rocks in his duel with Dooku, leaving him with a severe limp. Tholme refused to get a artificial replacement, instead using a cane, and ceased going on missions for most of the Clone Wars. When he does take the field again, he gets his leg replaced, realizing that his own dislike of cybernetics had clouded his judgment and prevented him from getting involved in several conflicts where his presence would have been very beneficial.
  • Killed Offscreen: He passed away sometime after the group hid out on Kashyyyk after Order 66.
  • Life Will Kill You: He avoided Order 66 due to being on Nar Shaddaa with T'ra Saa and Khaleen Hentz at the time, but eventually passed away from old age on Anzat.
  • Lost Lenore: He becomes this to T'ra Saa after he dies.
  • Master Swordsman: Even Count Dooku acknowledges his skills with a lightsaber, believing him to be one of the few Jedi who truly understands how to use one.
  • Meaningful Name: His characterization is based off of Sherlock Holmes. His alias during a mission to Devaron was "Miles Croft", a reference to Mycroft Holmes, the brother of Sherlock Holmes.
  • Only One Name: He has no last name.
  • The Spymaster: He runs the Jedi Order's spy network and handles the assignments of any Jedi undercover.
  • Worthy Opponent: Count Dooku regards him as one, and has a lot of respect for Tholme.
    Dooku: I really must compliment you, Master Tholme. You've kept up your dueling skills better than most Jedi. Too many use it merely to deflect blaster bolts. Inelegant. We share a respect for the old ways, you and I - and more. You have seen the corruption as I have. There must be change. Embrace it! Join me!

Species: Veknoid

Appears in: Republic | Dark Times

"I am but a leaf blown by the winds of the Force. I trust my purpose in being anywhere will eventually be revealed to me."

A blind, elderly Jedi Master. When the Dark Side of the Force became of notice after the appearance of Darth Maul during the Blockade of Naboo crisis, he stopped taking on formal missions assigned by the Jedi High Council and instead went to wherever the Force took him, believing that the Jedi Order had become misguided in helping a corrupt Republic. He refused to take up arms when the Clone Wars began, also believing it to be against the will of the Force. Though he survived Order 66 with other Jedi, he left their hideout to find Sidirri after she ran away.


  • Gonk: He looks pretty nasty, which is dissonant with how he thinks.
  • Meaningful Name: His name is adapted from tao.
  • What Could Have Been: He was originally going to die in his first appearance, but Duursema was requested to let him live.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: His fate is left unknown after he goes off to look for Sidirri when she runs away. Neither of them were seen again, though since Sidirri is said to have become a Dark Jedi...

Jedi Knights

    Sharad Hett 

Sharad Hett

Species: Human

Appears in: Republic

A Jedi Knight active before the Invasion of Naboo, having been the Padawan of Eeth Koth. A legendary hero, he grew tired of his fame, which in combination with a disaster that destroyed his homeworld and killed his family, he went into self-exile on Tatooine and became the warlord of a Tusken Raider tribe. During this time, he became the husband of K'Sheek and the couple had a son named A'Sharad Hett. When Ki-Adi-Mundi was sent to retrieve Sharad in search of help against the discovered reborn Sith threat, Sharad was killed during a conflict between the Hutts and his tribe thanks to Aurra Sing. Sharad's last wishes were for Ki-Adi-Mundi to take A'Sharad back to the Jedi to be trained, which they respected.


  • The Ace: He is treated as the greatest Jedi knight of his generation in the backstory. However, Hett resents this status because it conflicts with Jedi ideals, and he is only as zealous as he is because it distracts him from the feelings of depression caused by his separation from his family.
  • Bald of Awesome: He's a badass Jedi and happens to be bald.
  • I Have Many Names: He gathered a collection of heroic titles during his time as a Jedi.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: As the leader of the Sand People in the Outlander story arc.
    Hett: I'm a war leader, my friend, not a king.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: He was just some One-Shot Character for a problem-of-the-week arc in the Star Wars main comicsnote . As it turns out, his son, A'Sharad, becomes very important, which by default makes Sharad himself rather important as well. As in, his son becomes the Big Bad of Legacy, long after Sharad has passed.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: His duty as a Jedi prevents him from visiting his homeworld. He considers leaving the Jedi Order so he can go back to his family only to discover that they were all killed by revolutionaries when he was away..

  • Depending on the Artist: Either she has brown skin or blue skin.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: She dies while taking out Separatist defenses at Saleucami. Though given that the Empire rises a couple of weeks later (meaning that the Separatists would've surrendered anyway), it ultimately was a Senseless Sacrifice.
  • Lost Lenore: Of A'Sharad Hett, otherwise known as the man who would become Darth Krayt a century after the Dark Times.
  • The Name's The Same: Xiaan Amersu and Sian Jeisel. Both of them are named after Jan Duursema's daughter, Sian.
  • Taking You with Me: Her starfighter gets heavily damaged, but she uses her last moments to crash it into the heart of the Separatists' defenses, which turns the tide of the campaign in the Republic's favor.
