"There's no need to apologize. You saved my life, you know."
―Bant to Obi-Wan Kenobi

Bant Eerin was a Mon Calamari Jedi Master and a childhood friend of Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.



Kit Fisto took Bant as his Padawan after her first master, Tahl, was killed. Being of the Mon Calamari species, Bant liked to be around water, and the atmosphere of her quarters at the Jedi Temple was always kept misty and humid. In 44 BBY Bant was nearly killed by Xanatos, Qui-Gon Jinn's former apprentice who had turned to the dark side. Xanatos ordered his disciple, former Jedi student Bruck Chun, to chain her to the bottom of a pool, but her life was spared due to Obi-Wan's timely intervention.

After Bant became a Knight, Fisto reputedly never took another apprentice, although it seems he took on at least one more during the Clone Wars, called Nahdar Vebb. During the Battle of Geonosis, Bant flew her Jedi starfighter in the space battle that raged above the planet, alongside Adi Gallia and Adi's former Padawan Siri Tachi. Bant continued to serve the Galactic Republic in the Clone Wars, taking a Padawan and hunting down the Confederate scientist Bitt Panith in the Kashyyyk system. There, she and the Padawan dueled against one of the Separatists' most dangerous agents, Asajj Ventress. At the end of the fighting, Bant was presumably killed during the Great Jedi Purge. Indeed, Bant would be one of the Jedi Obi-Wan wistfully recalled during his exile on Tatooine.

Temple thefts

When the thefts were taking place at the Temple, Bant proved to be extremely useful by Qui-Gon Jinn and Tahl. When the stolen items were discovered Qui-Gon asked her to dive down and bring up the crates, due to her ability to hold her breath for extended periods of time. The stolen objects were at the bottom of the lake and Bant managed to recover them.

Behind the scenes

In Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Kit Fisto is master to another Mon Calamari Padawan, named Nahdar Vebb.
