Character/Costume Description

Jek Wyngaard was a Force-sensitive
Pantoran male who worked alongside the
Jedi during the Haffrin Conflict. Around 2
BBY, Jek was selected by Jedi Knight
Neofius Ozzarak as part of a strike team
to track down and the Sith Lord Darth
Zandred and his darkside cult. What was
initially going to be a brief mission turned
into a year-long ordeal on Haffrin, as
Ozzarak's largely untrained forces were
stranded and isolated and forced to do
battle against Zandred's growing number
of followers.

Biography-

Jek Wygaard was a Pantoran male, born
in 25 BBY on the Pantoran moon, orbiting
the planet Orto Plutonia. Discovered to be
force-sensitive during his youth, he was
taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to
begin his Jedi training.

Before his Initiate Training could be
completed, Supreme Chancelor Palpatine
initiated Operation Knightfall, led by the
newly christened Darth Vader. Nearly all
Jedi in the temple were killed by the Clone
Troopers of the 501st Legion, if not Vader
himself. However, Jek and a handful of
other younglings were led to safety and
smuggled off Coruscant by Jedi Knight Kol
Halcyon, who through use of both
meditation and Mechu Deru became aware
of the attack on the temple just hours
before it took place.

Halcyon knew that the survival of the
younglings depended on them remaining
inconspicuous. He made the difficult
decision to leave the younglings at an
orphanage on Botajef, trusting in the
Force to guide their destinies. Jek fell in
with the rest of the orphans and largely
forgot his childhood Jedi training.

It wasn't until ten years later that came
across a Jedi Holocron sitting in a junk
shop window, which Jek instantly
recognized and stole. Straining to
remember his early teachings, Jek spent
hours trying to telekinetically unlock the
activation mechanism of the holocron.

Once activated, the holocron revealed the
history of The Thule Conflict as well as the
aftermath of the ordeal's final battle,
recorded by Jedi Knight Trapp Radmal. In
the end, Trapp was mortally wounded by a
darkside cultist on Thule. Trapp recorded
his final moments on the holocron,
warning of the dangers of a resurrected
Zaric and urging any surviving Jedi to go
to Thule and aid Jedi Knight Neofius
Ozzarak in defeating the Zarists.

Journey to Thule and work with the Jedi-

Jek sold the few valuables he had and
chartered a one-way trip to Thule. Upon
his arrival, he quickly discovered the
abandoned Jedi encampment. Jek spent
the next three years investigating the
remains of the ruins of the training facility
and the surrounding area. He discovered
more holocrons left behind by Jedi Master
Kaff C'iron and Jreygun Kel, as well as the
SSITH, and began using them to train
himself in the ways of the Jedi.

Unbeknownst to Jek, he activated a
distress beacon in the aged equipment
which eventually was recognized by
Neofius Ozzarak. Neofius was still trying to
track down the Zarists, and upon receiving
the distress signal, went immedieatly to
Thule. There, he discovered a poorly
trained Jek, whom he also saw potential
in. He gave Jek Radmal's old lightsabers
to wield. Given his rudimentary skills with
a lightsaber, Jek began tinkering with
Radmal's old saber staffs, preferring to
wield a more conventional single
lightsaber instead.

Jek accompanied Neofius to Haffrin, on the
trail of what they believed to be the
Zarists. However, it turned out instead to
be the workings of Darth Zandred, a
mysterious Sith Lord. Zandred had begun
amassing an army of darksider acolytes,
whom shortly thereafter sabotaged the
Jedi's craft on Haffrin, effectively stranding
them there.

Personality and Traits:

"All the Jedi initiates were blank slates
when they started out. But because you
tried to train yourself, with questionable
teachings no less, you've developed a lot
of bad habits."

-Neofius Ozzarak, discussing the nature of
Jek's power.

Jek was an impulsive and impatient during
his youth. Having no real authority figure
in his life after being absconded from the
Jedi Temple, he has a fierce independent
streak.

Upon discovering Trapp Radmal's
holocron, Jek adopted many of the Grey
Jedi's philosophies and views. Radmal felt
that the Jedi's pacifistic tendencies had
prevented them from predicting the Jedi
Purge and had cost them the war. His
disdain for many of the Jedi's tenants of
non-violence and pacifism rubbed off on
Jek.

Jek viewed the Jedi as a broken
organization, much to the ire of Neofius.
While Jek found a number of their views
on life and the Force as important, he
disagreed with many of their strict codes
and moral authority. Even so, he still
adopted the many customs of the Jedi
lifestyle, to include dressing himself like
one, and considered himself an agent of
the Light Side of the Force.

Powers and Abilities:

"He has no real technique with a
lightsaber, but that makes him
unpredictable."

Vaysla Redd to Darth Zandred

Despite spending the first years of his
childhood training rigorously to be a Jedi,
many of his early teachings were
forgotten. In their place, Jek learned how
to take care of himself on the streets of
Botajef. He was a skilled pickpocket and
thief, and was able to move quickly
despite his size.

Jek was a natural athlete, with a
considerable amount of strength and size.
His fighting abilities, while rudimentary,
were effective enough to hold his own and
survive on the streets of Botajef.

Due to the solitary nature of Jek's self-
taught Force abilities, his powers were
often out of control of erratic. Because of
his fast, loose fighting style, he favored
Ataru when using his lightsaber. Like the
rest of his Jedi abilities, his saber skills
were not as precise or well-honed as they
otherwise could have been, but his
strength, speed, and athleticism helped
compensate slightly for this.
