The Morgukai were one of several secret societies formed in the history of the Nikto people of Kintan.



Little was known of the order, but its members (usually of the Kajain'sa'Nikto race) were renowned for their intense hatred of the Jedi and their strict code of honor. Morgukai followers used armor and staffs infused with cortosis alloy, which was resistant to the lightsabers used by their Jedi nemesis. To fight their sworn enemies, they developed mental exercises to resist the Jedi mind trick.

Their order bore some similarity to that of the Jedi. Fathers took their sons as apprentices, training them in the deadly arts. An example of this is the master-student bond between the Nikto Tsyr and Bok. Also, Morgukai initiates were required to build their own cortosis staffs as a test of their devotion to the order.

Despite their violent ways, the Morgukai had a strong sense of honor.


The Morgukai were prominent during the days of the Galactic Republic.

Sometime before the Clone Wars, the Devaronian, Vilmarh Grahrk, recruited a pair of Morgukai warriors Tsyr and Bok to help him in a plot against Clan Secura. However, the former was killed by Jedi Knight Quinlan Vos and the latter lost his hand to his apprentice, Aayla Secura.

During the Clone Wars, the Confederacy of Independent Systems offered to Bok the chance to resurrect his order. They cloned him, creating hundreds of new Morgukai, on Saleucami, intending to create their own clone army to use against the Republic. Their existence was discovered by Jedi Master Tholme, who informed the Republic, causing Saleucami to be blockaded. For five months, the Republic fought against the Morgukai legions. By the siege's end, all of the clones, including their progenitor were killed.

During the rise of the Galactic Empire, the Morgukai cult went into recession and virtually disappeared with the last known (former) Morgukai, the Jedi Ma'kis'shaalas, being killed by Darth Vader in the Conclave of Kessel. By the Legacy Era, a single Morgukai served as part of the pirate Rav's crew and went with him to Zeltros during a meeting to enlist Cade Skywalker's help. However, during the meeting, Skywalker insulted the Morgukai who went into a rage and attacked Cade only for him to be Force pushed into a waterfall.

Behind the scenes

  • In the comic Rite of Passage, the Morgukai Tsyr and Bok are depicted as having four-fingered hands, but all their Clone Wars appearances show them with the more humanoid five-fingered hands.
  • The Morgukai refer to the Jedi as Jeedai. This, along with their alien appearance, full-body armor, and lightsaber-resistant staff weapons, also likens them to the Yuuzhan Vong.
