Jedi of the Week: Kit Fisto Pt. 4- Skirmish on Kamino.
This is some sweet fan art by an artist that idk, so here's an unofficial shoutout.😬 A few months after the Battle of Geonosis, Fisto and Aayla Secura were assigned to oversee the training of clones on Kamino. While in Tipoca City the Jedi found several dead clone troopers amongst the city's polished halls. After examination by the Kaminoan scientists, they concluded that the troopers were infected by a nano-virus. After visiting Master Cloner Sayn Ta, the Jedi pair deduced that there was a Kaminoan traitor in the facility. Fisto and Secura traced the traitor and faced off against a group of super battle droids, which were given to the traitor by her allies in the Confederacy. In the resulting skirmish, Secura was thrown off a platform and dragged down into the water by one of the destroyed battle droids. Fisto quickly jumped after her and, being amphibious, breathed for the both of them by locking lips with the Twi'lek. Secura was then able to climb up the platform only to be grabbed by the traitor, with the nano-virus injector pointed to her arm. Revealed to be the Kaminoan Kuma Nai, Secura was able to break free of Nai and pushed the injector into the traitor's own arm, killing the Kaminoan instantly.
Jedi of the Week: Kit Fisto Pt. 3- The Clone Wars: Battle of Geonosis "You may have been a proud warrior once, but now you're just a pawn in Dooku's game."
Soon after dispatching the Pirates of Iridium in early 22 BBY with the aid of Master Belsed-Qan Idan, Fisto was one of the two hundred Jedi that accompanied Master of the OrderMace Windu to rescue Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Padmé Amidala from execution at the hands of the Confederacy of Independent Systemsleadership. Landing on the dusty plains of Geonosis, Master Fisto and his comrades stormed the Petranaki arena and ignited their lightsabers amidst hundreds of droids. During the battle in the arena, Fisto crossed paths with a battle droid equipped with the head of a protocol droid; he pinned him underneath a B2 super battle droid before grinning to himself and continuing on with the fight.
One of the few Jedi standing when the survivors were shepherded into the center of the arena, Fisto stood ready to die with his allies when several LAAT/i gunships dropped out of the sky. Piloted by the clone troopers of the newly formed Grand Army of the Republic, Fisto boarded Grand Master Yoda's ship along with fellow survivors Masters Windu and Ki-Adi-Mundi. Landing on the plains outside the arena, Fisto led the new Grand Army against the Separatist Droid Armyduring what would be known as the opening battle of the Clone Wars.
Jedi of the Week- Kit Fisto Pt. 2: Early Years.
"Those who have power should restrain themselves from using it" -Kit Fisto
Kit Fisto was a Force-sensitiveNautolan born on the planet Glee Anselm, in the Sabilon region. He was related to the Force-sensitive Teräs Käsi master Neaed Fisto, who was his mother's brother. Trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, his distinctive head tentacles contained highly sensitive olfactory receptors that allowed him to detect pheromonalexpressions of emotion and other changes in body chemistry. This was indeed a unique attribute not afforded to any other species of Jedi, either naturally or through the Force. Constructing a green-bladed lightsaberand completing the Trials of Knighthood, Kit Fisto ascended to the rank of Jedi Knight. Not one to draw attention to himself, Jedi Fisto studied the path of the Jedi Consular, aspiring to gain a seat on the Council of Reconciliation in the future. (More in comments.)
Jedi Tionne Solusar-...Tionne Solusar was a female Human from the planet Rindao and a Jedi Master. A scholar of Jedi history, Tionne was one of the first students of Luke Skywalker's New Jedi Order and was almost entirely responsible for regathering the lost knowledge of the Old Jedi Order. She was involved in many important events to face the order, including the Yuuzhan Vong War, and often acted as a protector for the generation of younger Jedi Knights. Eventually, Tionne found love with another of Luke Skywalker's students, Kam Solusar, whom she later married. After attaining the rank of Jedi Master, Tionne served on both the Masters' Council and the more formal Jedi High Council that succeeded it. In addition, Master Solusar acted as the head of the Ossus Jedi Academy, along with her husband. Tionne grew up with the Jedi lore her grandmother related to her. Eventually, Imperial stormtroopers executed Tionne's grandmother for spreading those tales of the Jedi. Tionne fled Rindao, taking her grandmother's double viol with her. She made her living by working at cantinas where she could perform her music, and she would in turn ask patrons to share any knowledge they had of the Jedi Order. #StarWars#JediCouncil#Jedi#TheNewJediOrder#TionneSolusar#InstaSize
Jedi Kam Solusar-...Kam Solusar was a Jedi Knight who turned to the dark side of the Force, but was brought back to the light side through the efforts of Luke Skywalker. After his meeting with Skywalker, Kam became one of the first students to study at the Jedi Praxeum on Yavin 4. Later on he became a Jedi Master and married fellow Jedi Tionne. He was also the genetic template for the clone Alpha. The son of Ranik Solusar, a Jedi Master slain by Darth Vader, Solusar spent many years hiding from Vader's Dark Jedi. When discovered, Solusar was tortured until his spirit was broken, and then converted to the dark side of the Force. He was stripped of the memories of his former life. After training as a Dark Jedi, Emperor Palpatine selected him as a personal warrior on Byss, part of the Dark Side Elite. On Vjun, Vill Goir taught Solusar lightsaber combat techniques. Solusar first encountered Skywalker on Nespis VIII circa 10.5 ABY. Sensing great strength in Solusar, Skywalker was determined to turn him back. With great difficulty, Luke helped Solusar to cast off the chains of the dark side and embrace the light side of the Force as he was intended to by restoring his memories. Now loyal to Skywalker, Solusar traveled with the Jedi Master to Ossus to assist the Ysanna in their battle against Imperial forces. He was made a general of the New Republic Defense Forces; after defeating an Imperial army and two Dark Jedi, Solusar led a raid on the reborn Emperor's flagship and sabotaged it. #StarWars#JediCouncil#Jedi#TheNewJediOrder#KamSolusar#InstaSize
Jedi Mara Jade Skywalker-...Mara Jade Skywalker was, during different times in her life, an Emperor's Hand, a smuggler, and later a Jedi Master who sat upon the Jedi High Council. She was raised as a servant to Emperor Palpatine and became a high-level Force-using operative. As an Emperor's Hand, Jade carried out the Emperor's bidding, killing Rebels and corrupt Imperials alike with cold professionalism, even as a young woman. As Palpatine's assassin, she received top-notch training from experts in a variety of fields as well as training in the Force, which was continued by Luke Skywalker years later. After Palpatine's death, she received his last command, which was to kill Luke Skywalker; however, the death of her Master caused her to go rogue. Eventually she joined smuggler chief Talon Karrde, becoming one of his best smugglers and his second-in-command. During the predations of Grand Admiral Thrawn, she was forced to work with Skywalker, and developed a grudging respect for him. During the Galactic Civil War, Mara Jade proved herself skilled in a variety of fields; she was a good pilot and mechanic and trained in the use of both a blaster and hand-to-hand combat even without relying on the Force. Mara Jade was born in 17 BBY during a time of great instability as Emperor Palpatine, alias the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, and his apprentice Darth Vader were eliminating the remnants of the Jedi Order. The Emperor took Jade from her parents and brought her to the planet Coruscant at a very young age, where he began to train her in the Force, although officially she was one of the Imperial Palace's dancers. Years later, Jade remembered little about her early life besides her parents' reluctance to let her go and her own certainty that she was going to leave with the Emperor. She did recall at one point that she had had a falling-star globe as a child and had gotten in trouble after breaking it to see how it worked. Her master trained her in the ways of the Force and she was made into an agent of the Empire. Some of the Imperial court assumed her to simply be one of Palpatine's concubines. #StarWars#JediCouncil#Jedi#TheNewJediOrder#MaraJadeSkywalker#InstaSize
Jedi Luke Skywalker-...Luke Skywalker was a Force-sensitive human male Jedi Master who was instrumental in defeating the Galactic Empire and the Sith during the Galactic Civil War. He was the son of the redeemed Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padmé Amidala, the grandson of Shmi Skywalker Lars, the grandson of both Ruwee Naberrie and Jobal Naberrie, the step-nephew of Owen and Beru Lars, the twin brother of Leia Organa and the uncle of Ben Solo. Luke and his sister were born in 19 BBY on the asteroid Polis Massa, unbeknownst to their father; the recently christened Sith Lord Darth Vader. After his mother died during labor, Luke was separated from his sister and taken by Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi to the planet Tatooine to be raised by the Lars family, out of sight of the Galactic Empire. Luke grew up unaware of his origins, but his life changed forever with his uncle's purchase of two droids—R2-D2 and C-3PO—carrying plans to the Imperial Death Star superweapon. Luke Skywalker was born in 19 BBY on the asteroid of Polis Massa two days after the proclamation of the Galactic Empire. He and his twin sister Leia, who was born shortly after him, were the children of Galactic Republic Senator Padmé Amidala, who died in labor, and Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, who had recently fallen to the dark side of the Force. One of the most influential people in the entire galaxy, Luke Skywalker's accomplishments would be remembered for decades. Within the annals of the Resistance, basic training would see all pilots in its Starfighter Corps learning the Skywalker Swoop, which was based on Luke's piloting abilities during the Galactic Civil War. #StarWars#JediCouncil#Jedi#TheNewJediOrder#LukeSkywalker#InstaSize
