Ofar Tan-Doov

Ithorian Male Jedi


Ofar Tan-Doov was an Ithorian male Jedi Knight who discovered the Force sensitive twins Eldewn and Elsae Sarvool. He adopted the sisters as his own Padawan learners, and spent a dangerous year on the run from the Galactic Empire teaching the twins everything he could about the ways of the Force before being killed the the Empire in the skies over Aunap.

The Clone Wars

While heading a Jedi lead humanitarian relief mission to the Mid-Rim world of Romin, Tan-Doov sensed a powerful Force presence in two twin sisters living on the streets of the planets slums. He learned that the sisters had lived a life of privillage with their wealthy parents until the start of the Clone Wars, but that their parents had been killed in the gangland warfare that had plagued the planet and caused the humanitarian disaster.

He also realized that the months spent on the run underground on Romin had taken it’s tole psychologically on the girls. Though Eldewn dealt with the hardship by putting on a strong outer appearance to hide her fears, Elsae turned her fear inwards, a trait Tan-Doov feared could lead her to the dark side of the Force. Never the less he vowed to take both twins to Coruscant in order to train them in the ways of the Jedi, an order who’s numbers were fast depleeting as a result of the long running Clone Wars.

Order 66 and the Dark Times

Before Tan-Doov could leave Romin however Order 66 was issued, and Tan-Doov now found himself on the run as a fugitive with all his fellow Jedi. Knowing that there was now no Jedi Order to protect and train the twins, Tan-Doov decided to train them himself, though in his advanced age it was an extremely difficult task to undertake.

For more than a year Tan-Doov fled with the girls from planet to planet, always on the run from the Galactic Empire, yet also instilling Jedi teachings in the girls. Though they were rarely in one spot for too long, Tan-Doov made remarkable progress in teaching the girls to harness their Force abilities, though in Elsae Tan-Doov still feared a growing dark anger within her.

Death of Master Tan-Doov

One fateful day not long after the twins and their master Tan-Doov had purchased an old second hand Consular Cruiser, an agent with the Bureau of Ships and Services discovered Tan-Doov’s nature as a fugitive Jedi. The agent contacted nearby Imperial authorities before Tan-Doov could flee, and within hours a Venator-Class Star Destroyers was on the trio’s tail making hyperspace jump after hyperspace jump in a desperate attempt to escape their pursuers.

Their last hope was to fly to the planet Aunap, but the Imperial star destroyer was on their tail once again. As their cruiser came out of orbit over Aunap it was fired heavily upon by the star destroyer, critically damaging it.

With his last living moments a severely injured Tan-Doov pushed the twins into an escape pod and jettisoned it to the planet’s surface below in the hopes that they could survive the Imperial onslaught, moments later he died as their cruiser exploded in space.

Powers and Abilities

Ofar Tan-Doov was a deeply compassionate Jedi, who lead countless humanitarian relief missions throughout the three year Clone Wars. After sensing a great and powerful Force presence in the Sarvool twins, he decided it was his responsibility as a Jedi to nurture the girls and teach them to the proper ways of the Force, fearing they could fall to the Dark Side soon without help.

Tan-Doov made this decision knowing it would be extremely difficult to do so while on the run from the Galactic Empire, and that it would be much easier to think only of himself and not the twins. Despite knowing this he cared for the twins and never contemplated leaving them to save himself, even using his last moments of life to save theirs from certain doom.
