Lost Jedi Sketch 4: Rial Shif

Rial Shif is an agent of the Jedi. You could walk around the Jedi Temple in Coruscant and ask everyone if they’ve ever heard the name Rial Shif. The answer from almost all of those present would be no and a quizzical look as to where you got that name from.

Rial Shif is as close to a Dark Jedi as you’ve ever met without falling over the precipice of the Dark Side. His teachings were considered far too borderline – edging into powerful and long hidden dark aspects of the force – to be allowed to teach the younglings. However Jedi Master Yoda understands the good in Rial Shif. His trust in Shif means he has found a unique position within the order. He wanders the space lanes, mostly out on the outer rim practicing his own brand of Jedi justice. Always short of brutal, Shif is an exacting and intimidating Jedi. All those that have crossed him have discovered that. To their cost.

The Lost Jedi: Jedi Master Ca De Nas

Ca De Nas (Cristian Cadenas) is a master of arms for the Jedi. One of the foremost trainers of Lightsabre technique in the galaxy, Ca De Nas is based on Coruscant at the time of Order 66. A trainer of Anakin Skywalker in the years prior to the Clone Wars, Ca De Nas tried to impart the wisdom of open hand techniques in battle and introduce mercy, guile and non-fatal attacks. Anakin struggles to fight his teacher for a time, until fury takes hold. Ca De Nas instinctively held back some of the techniques taught to all Padawans at Master Yoda’s request and Obi Wan’s agreement until he had demonstrated greater control of his temper. Ca De Nas’ capacity for guile and adaptability make him a difficult opponent and a respected warrior in the Jedi ranks.

Lost Jedi: Coruscant

Jedi Master Pesco Oldbar


Jedi Master Pesco Oldbar is a seer and a true commander of the force. Present at the Temple in Coruscant as sage advisor to even the most prominent Jedi she acts as councillor. With the attack on the Temple, her only concern is the safety of the Padawan. While she is unable to save all of them, she manages to help some escape, thanks in part to the bravery of other Jedi as they try to facilitate their departure.

Jedi Archivist Downa Di Evlo

Never to be dismissed merely as an archivist, Downa Di Evlo’s knowledge of the inner defenses of the Jedi Temple allow her to defend the Hall of Knowledge and Jedi Padawan passing through. Thanks to occassional tutelage by Jedi Master Ca De Nas, Windu and Govija Kaoli she proves a dab hand with a lightsabre too.

Jedi Knight Jan Pa Pek

Jan Pa Pek is the first to try to stop Anakin Skywalker as ploughs through the Temple but not the first to fall before him. His fury at Anakin overwhelms his Jedi calm brefily which momentarily gives Anakin pause.

Jedi Knight Tomos Seers

Jedi Knight Tomos Seers is Jan Pa Pek’s partner in all missions. Having trained together since Padawan stage, the two of them have an intuitive sense of what the other will do in battle. Their combined fury halts Anakin Skywalker and the Clone army briefly, long enough for the more defenceless Jedi to slip through the cordon.

Padawan Freya


Padawan Freya is trapped in the Coruscant Temple and is only freed by Ca De Nas during his battle with Anakin Skywalker. Aided, unwillingly, towards escape, Freya attempts at every turn to help but is overwhelmed with the violence, destruction and brutality around her as the battle continues. Regardless of her condition if she escapes, she will carry the scars of the day in the Coruscant Temple for the rest of her life.
