|Unidentified Jedi Master (Sacking of Coruscant)|
This Jedi Master was a male Human member of the Jedi Order by 3,653 BBY, during the Great Galactic War. When a pair of intruders—Darth Malgus and a Twi'lek—entered the Jedi Temple on the Republic capital of Coruscant, this Jedi, accompanied by his colleagues, was quick to confront the two. Before anything could be done, a captured Republic shuttle full of Sith warriors crashed through the Temple's main entrance. Its passengers quickly disembarked, immediately attacking the group of Jedi. This Jedi fought against Malgus in a display of Force powers and lightsaber skills, but he was soon impaled by the Sith Lord, killed as the Sith Empire's assault on Coruscant began.

In 3,681 BBY, the forgotten Sith Empire emerged from hiding and launched a war against the Galactic Republic. In 3,653 BBY, twenty-eight years after the war's beginning, the Sith forces contacted the Republic with their wish to negotiate an end to the conflict. The Jedi Order, sworn defenders of the Republic, were skeptical of the Sith's intentions, but they realized that they had little chance of winning the war and decided to see if peace was really possible. While delegates from both sides met on the Core World of Alderaan to negotiate a cease-fire, the Sith moved in on the planet of Coruscant, the Republic's capital.
This male Human Jedi Master was present at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when Darth Malgus and a Twi'lek proceeded to kill a squad of Temple security guards that were trying to bar them from entering the Temple. As the pair of intruders strode in, this Jedi—accompanied by his lightsaber-wielding allies, who had taken up positions flanking him on numerous levels—positioned himself in front of Malgus without a word. Before either opponent could act, a captured Republic shuttle crashed through the Temple's main entrance, damaging the surrounding area and skidding to a stop behind Malgus. The Jedi held their ground for a moment as the shuttle came to a halt. The shuttle's hatch opened, revealing a strike force of at least twenty-five Sith warriors who ignited their lightsabers and engaged the assembled Jedi and members of Temple Security in a pitched battle.
After immobilizing the Twi'lek by throwing her against a stone pillar, the Jedi was alerted by a nearby astromech droid to an impending strike from Malgus. He and the Sith Lord engaged in combat, and the Jedi held his own against his opponent. He was knocked back by a roundhouse kick, using the opportunity to strike at a pair of Sith before leaping into the air as Malgus threw his lightsaber at his adversary, narrowly missing the blade. However, while he was still airborne, Malgus Force pushed him through a mound of rubble.
Malgus pulled his lightsaber back to his hand as he Force jumped over the rubble and, bringing his weapon in a killing strike, drove it into the floor where the Jedi had been only a moment earlier. The Jedi, however, had evaded the strike and once again engaged Malgus in blade-to-blade combat, even managing to land a blow to his enemy's face with the hilt of his lightsaber. Ultimately, he was no match for Malgus, opening himself up to a fatal thrust through his abdomen. As he lay dying, the Sith Lord told him how the Jedi Order had been deceived, and that the Republic would fall as a result. The Jedi's last sight was that of the Temple Precinct in flames, with scores of Sith starfighters, warships, and ground forces continuing the attack on the capital world, a battle that would culminate with the death of the Republic's Supreme Chancellor and the destruction of the Temple itself.
Personality and traits
When Darth Malgus and his Twi'lek companion breached the Temple's defenses, this Jedi led his comrades in confronting the two in a standoff. Even as the captured Republic shuttle crashed through the building's main entrance, the Jedi stood his ground while his companions took a few steps back. When the Sith emerged from the craft, this Jedi joined his allies in defending the Temple, soon rushing to combat his opposite number in an ultimately fruitless attempt.
Powers and abilities
This Jedi utilized a wide variety of Force powers during the Invasion of the Jedi Temple; namely, telekinetic feats such as Force jump and Force speed when avoiding the lightsaber attacks of Darth Malgus, who ultimately killed him. Skilled in lightsaber combat, the Jedi held his own against his enemy, managing to block most of the Sith's strikes before the Sith managed to stab him in the abdomen.
Behind the scenes
This unidentified Jedi appeared in the "Deceived" trailer to the upcoming video game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, albeit without any dialogue. Thus far, the trailer has been the character's only appearance.
