"A Jedi whose lightsaber is guided by the Force need not fear the outcome of any battle."
―Anoon Bondara

Anoon Bondara was a Rutian Twi'lek Jedi Master in the waning years of the Galactic Republic.



"When you are one with the Force, you are as nothing. A calm in the storm, a pivot to the lever. Chaos may rage around you, yet you are still."
―Anoon Bondara
Bondara leaps from his speeder to engage Maul and allow his companions to escape.

Bondara was a master practitioner of the lightsaber and served as a lightsaber instructor at the Jedi Temple, where his students included Obi-Wan Kenobi. He trained four Padawans, the last being Darsha Assant. He was also an expert Teräs Käsi practitioner. Bondara was also the Jedi Watchman for Ryloth, responsible for identifying Force-sensitive members of his own species and bringing them to Coruscant for training.

In 32 BBY, while accompanying Assant to the underlevels of Coruscant to ascertain the condition of her missions, they discovered that the individual she had been escorting back to the Temple was, in fact, dead. While making their way back to the upper levels he and his Padawan witnessed Darth Maul pursuing Lorn Pavan and I-5YQ. They intervened and pulled Pavan and I-5 into their speeder.

After learning about why the were being pursued, and realizing that Maul was catching up to them, Bondara leaped from his speeder onto Maul's speeder bike to allow the other three to escape. He forced the Sith Apprentice to crash onto a docking platform and engaged him in a duel. Despite Bondara's mastery of lightsaber combat, Darth Maul proved too powerful for even he to defeat so Bondara sacrificed his own life by blowing up a speeder bike in an attempt destroy his opponent in the blast. Though Bondara was killed in the explosion, Maul escaped the blast suffering only minor injuries.

Bondara's death occurred in the same year that the Twi'lek Boc Aseca was born. The absence of Ryloth's Watchman meant that Boc was not discovered by the Jedi until he was too old to be trained, and, as a result, became a Dark Jedi under Jerec instead.

Behind the scenes

In both of Anoon's appearances he is described as having lightsaber skills second to none. It should be further noted that his appearance bears striking resemblance to the Hasbro Twi'lek Jedi figure that was released for Hasbro's Star Wars 'Clone Wars' Jedi Knight Battle Pack, despite being dead for more than a decade before the Clone Wars.

It is a strong possibility that Anoon Bondara was the Jedi battlemaster prior to Cin Drallig. The information mentioned above, the fact that he was the lightsaber instructor to younglings and Padawans such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, and that he died in 32 BBY, the same year Cin Drallig became battlemaster, support this possibility.

A lightsaber crystal bearing his name, Bondara's Folly, is available to players in Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided.
