Potra was born on the Twi’lek home world about 28 years ago. His family was middle-class, and his father worked for a trading company as a shipping clerk. His mother sold herself into slavery when he was 16, and gave the resulting funds to Potra (nickname) to invest as he saw fit.
Potra’s first expenditure was to book passage on a freighter that was delivering supplies to the Jedi temple on (_________). When he arrived at the planet, he got a job as a shipping clerk, following his father’s trade and quickly worked his way up to shift manager. At the age of 18, he was saved from a rather direct attempt to usurp his position via a poison-laced glass of wine by a Jedi Master named Thedon Kret, a human in his later years, who quickly realized that Potra was force sensitive. Seeing the opportunity to further his education, and learn more of “human” nature, which had always fascinated him, Potra quickly attached himself to master Kret as an apprentice.
Potra quickly picked up on the Jedi studies presented to him. His primary studies have been in diplomacy, Sense powers, and various forms of meditation. He and Master Kret were at the Jedi Temple the day the Chi’Tar came, and barely escaped with their lives. They’ve been on the run since then. Once back with the Jedi council, Master Kret was a strong supporter of those who wanted the Jedi to be more proactive regarding the Chi’Tar menace. This cost both Kret and his apprentice much face during the duration of that political situation, and has left Potra slightly jaded, though still open to the good in people as a whole.
Following the recent events at Endor, Master Kret was chosen by the Jedi council to act as a liaison between Grand Admiral Wilco’s New Empire/Republic, (whatever Dagan’s decided to call it now), Ambassador Kennit Po, and the Jedi. Master Kret has determined that a great portion of the lack of support for the current Jedi order stems from being hidebound regarding various philosophies through out the galaxy regarding religion and the use of the Force, the Jedi order’s lack of response to the Chi’Tar threat, and the Jedi not communicating well enough with the New Republic and various other worlds. To prevent this from getting worse, and to repair the damage as best they can, the Jedi order has decided to dedicate more time to diplomacy. Considering recent events, they need Master Kret to continue to work with Ambassador Po in the Endor system.
Potra has been granted the rank of Jedi Knight within the last month, and is being assigned to serve as ambassador to Grand Admiral Wilco. His assignment is as follows –
1- Answer questions from Wilco and his command staff.
2- Keep an eye on this new and growing faction in the universe.
3- Keep an eye out for new recruits.
4- Do “damage control” where possible, explaining the jedi’s acknowledgement of their errors, and informing the galaxy of how the jedi order plans to correct it’s errors.
5- Check Tattooine for any records of the early lives of Anakin and Luke Skywalker.
6- Establish a base of operations on Tattooine for further diplomatic missions, and determine if the location would be viable for a new Jedi Temple. (Basically, the place is obviously a magnet for force users, as it has now shown a prominence in several “recent” historical events, which may indicate some sort of force vergence.)
