"But in this war, strength prevails. The rules have changed."
"Perhaps you are the one who has changed."
―Nahdar Vebb and Kit Fisto — (audio)Listen (file info)

Nahdar Vebb was a male Mon Calamari who served as a Jedi Knight during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and Confederacy of Independent Systems. Vebb was the Padawan of Jedi Master Kit Fisto prior to the Clone Wars, but with the outbreak of the war, Fisto became a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic and was unable to see Vebb's apprenticeship through to the end. Sometime around the beginning of the war, Vebb completed his training in his Master's absence and ascended to the rank of Jedi Knight. With the war still raging, Vebb joined the Republic's forces as a Jedi healer.

Around 22 BBY, Viceroy Nute Gunray, a leading member of the Separatist Council, escaped Republic captivity and stole a Republic frigate to flee. Vebb, Clone Commander Fil, and a group of clone troopers tracked the stolen vessel to the third moon of Vassek in the hopes of recapturing Gunray. Shortly after arriving, Vebb and the clones were met by the Mon Calamari's former Master, Kit Fisto, who had also been trailing Gunray. On the moon the Jedi and clones discovered a large fortress, and after continuing investigations inside the castle, they realized that they had been lured to the moon by Confederate Head of State Count Dooku as a test for General Grievous, the Supreme Commander of the Separatist Droid Army and a notorious Jedi hunter.

Vebb and the others discovered that they were inside Grievous's lair and planned to engage and capture the cyborg general, but upon his return, Grievous killed most of the clones and escaped from Vebb, Fisto, and Fil. The three were trapped in the castle, and with Fil's death at the hands of the general's pet roggwart, Gor, Vebb became increasingly angered and aggressive. When he saw an opportunity to kill Grievous, Vebb acted against Fisto's orders and dueled the general. The Mon Calamari was slain by Grievous, but Fisto managed to retrieve Vebb's lightsaber from the general before escaping.

Clone Wars

"In this war, a danger there is of losing who we are."
―Yoda — (audio)Listen (file info)
Nahdar Vebb tends to a wounded clone marine.

A male Mon Calamari from the planet Dac,[1] Nahdar Vebb[3] was the second Padawan learner of his species to be assigned to the Nautolan Jedi Master Kit Fisto.[5] Following the Battle of Geonosis and the outbreak of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY, Fisto was called upon to serve as a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic against the droid armies of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Fisto's duties as a general kept him away from Vebb, forcing the apprentice to continue his training bereft of a master. Although the Mon Calamari had no memory of his homeworld, Vebb was deeply troubled by the devastation the Confederacy wrought upon Dac. Eager to bring the Confederate leaders to justice for his people's suffering, Vebb fought determinedly on the front lines of the war and was eventually called upon for promotion to the level of Jedi Knight.[1]

Vebb eventually passed the Jedi Trials and became a full-fledged Knight. With the Clone Wars raging across the galaxy, Vebb joined the Republic's forces as a Jedi healer, working to aid clone troopers and other Republic personnel who had been wounded in battle. Vebb helped the injured troopers to continue fighting despite their wounds. At some point over the course of the war, Vebb served with both the 21st Nova Corps[6] and Clone Commander Fil's forces.[3]

Tracking Gunray

"Hahahaha Nahdar! Congratulations on passing the Trials! I'm sorry the war prevented me from seeing your training through to the end."
"You were missed, Master, but it is an honor to serve beside you as a Knight."
―Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb reunite on Vassek — (audio)Listen (file info)

Around 22 BBY,[2] Separatist Council member Viceroy Nute Gunray was captured by Republic forces after his failed attempt to bring the planet Rodia into the Confederacy,[7] but Gunray escaped from Republic captivity with the aide of several Confederate agents. The Neimoidian fled in a stolen Republic frigate,[8] and Vebb tracked the frigate's homing beacon to the rocky third moon of the Outer Rim planet Vassek alongside Fil and a small contingent of clone troopers. Shortly after making landfall in a Nu-class shuttle, Vebb and the troopers were met by the Mon Calamari's old master, Kit Fisto, who had also tracked Gunray to the moon. Fil reported to the two Jedi that the Republic frigate's tracking beacon had been pinpointed in the south end of a nearby gorge, and the group headed to investigate.[4]

In what Fisto considered an unnecessary show of Force ability,[9] Vebb parted the dense fog that concealed the gorge, revealing a set of large, vaulted doors set into the rock face. As the Jedi and clones approached the doors, Vebb moved to slice through the entryway with his lightsaber; however Fisto took a calmer approach and examined the doors, finding a concealed switch that granted them access. Vebb and his comrades entered through the doors, finding a dark labyrinth of halls and corridors comprising a massive fortress that stretched far back into the gorge. While moving down the halls toward the only lit room, they heard the voice of Gunray ordering a group of B1 battle droids to protect him from his Jedi pursuers. In reality, the viceroy was only acting as bait for the Jedi; Fisto and Vebb were approaching a mere hologram of the Neimoidian.[4]

Believing Gunray to be seated in a large chair faced away from them, the Jedi began to cut through his battle droid guards. The young Vebb exhibited particular brutality during the fighting, Force-pushing the segments of droids that had already been destroyed. Once the battle droids were defeated, Vebb used the Force to spin the viceroy's chair around, revealing Gunray's hologram. The gloating viceroy explained to the clones and Jedi that they had walked into a trap shortly before being replaced by a hologram of Count Dooku, the Confederate Head of State. Dooku sardonically apologized for inconveniencing the Republic forces and claimed he would be offering them a different prize in place of Gunray. Dooku's image faded away, leaving a flashing button on the chair's control panel.[4]

Anxious for answers, Vebb pushed the button, revealing another dark hallway. At the end of the hall, the Jedi and clones came upon a room filled with spare cybernetic limbs, bringing them to the realization that they had entered the lair of General Grievous, the cyborg Supreme Commander of the Confederate Droid Army and a notorious Jedi hunter. Unbeknownst to Vebb, Fisto, and the clones, Dooku was using them as pawns in a test for Grievous, whose abilities as a general had been called into question after a recent string of Confederate defeats. The Jedi and clones continued to search the general's castle, and Vebb was angered upon finding a trophy room filled with items the cyborg had taken from the Jedi he had slain over the course of the war. Vebb's anger turned to excitement upon receiving a report that General Grievous's starfighter was approaching the moon, providing the Republic forces with an opportunity to kill the Confederacy's best general and turn the tide of the war.[4]

Grievous, who was unaware that Republic forces had infiltrated his lair, returned to his castle only to be quickly ambushed by Vebb, Fisto, and the clones. While the Jedi engaged the general, the clones fired grappling hooks at the cyborg's legs, preventing him from escaping. After Fisto severed Grievous's legs, Vebb attempted to kill the general while he was on the floor; however, Grevious blocked the attack and then beat Vebb back by throwing the corpse of a clone trooper at him. The cyborg retreated into the depths of his castle by using fixtures on the walls and ceiling, while Vebb and the clones gave chase. The Mon Calamari lost the general after a pair of clones were killed while trying to prevent the cyborg's escape. Vebb was infuriated by the loss, having believed he could have fought Grievous had the clones not been in the way. The Mon Calamari's old Master was troubled by his aggression and suggested that they instead focus on their wounded. With only Vebb, Fisto, Fil, and one other trooper still alive, Fisto decided that retreat was necessary, despite Vebb's determination to engage Grievous. The general, watching the remaining Republic forces in his lair's control room via holocam, sealed his castle, trapping Vebb and his comrades.[4]

Hunted

"You can't defeat us all."
"Of course I can."
―Nahdar Vebb and General Grievous — (audio)Listen (file info)

Grievous, determined to kill all the intruders, activated a trap door where Vebb, Fisto, and the clones stood. Though the two Jedi leaped to safety, Fil and the only other surviving clone fell toward a molten incinerator vat. Receiving assistance from Fisto, Vebb saved Fil by grabbing onto his ascension cable, which the commander had fired at the ceiling. However, the other trooper fell to his death, and Vebb, Fisto, and Fil were soon confronted with Gor, Grievous's pet roggwart. After Gor grabbed the clone commander with his prehensile tail, Vebb attempted to save Fil, but he was knocked into a wall as Gor continued to slam Fil into the ground, killing the last clone. Attacking again, Vebb severed Gor's tail while Fisto drove his lightsaber into the beast's neck. With Gor dead, Vebb held Fil's dead body, swearing to avenge the trooper. Wary of his former Padawan's anger, Fisto reminded him that revenge was not the Jedi way, to which Vebb replied that the war had changed the rules and that strength was now required for survival. Still troubled by Vebb's actions, Fisto suggested that it was Vebb who had changed but nevertheless insisted that the two continue moving.[4]

Nahdar Vebb is killed by General Grievous.

Vebb and Fisto eventually arrived outside Grievous's control room. The general, who had been repaired by his medical droid, EV-A4-D,[9] went in search of the two Jedi with a squad of his IG-100 MagnaGuards. Fisto was successful in opening the door to the hidden chamber by repeating the sequence that Grievous had entered into it, but EV-A4-D, monitoring the Jedi's progress from the control room, alerted Grievous to their presence over the castle's speaker system. As the general turned around and headed to confront the Jedi, Vebb insisted on staying to face the cyborg to allow his former Master to flee. Fisto ordered Vebb to follow, and while the two argued, EV-A4-D resealed the control room door, separating the two Jedi and trapping Vebb from safety. The young Mon Calamari, still determined to defeat Grievous, attacked and destroyed four of his MagnaGuards before engaging the general himself. Believing the general's death would alter the course of the war and bring justice to the galaxy, Vebb joyfully dueled the cyborg for a brief time.[1] Upon entering into a saberlock, Grievous used one of his extra arms to repeatedly fire a blaster into Vebb's abdomen, killing him.[4]

Having killed Vebb, Grievous claimed the fallen Jedi's lightsaber. From the control room, Fisto witnessed his former Padawan's death, and although grief-stricken, he was able to make it to the castle's south landing platform, where his Delta-7B starfighter was waiting. On the platform, Fisto briefly dueled Grievous and was able to reclaim Vebb's lightsaber before escaping.[9] Fisto returned to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where he reported on the mission and Vebb's death to Jedi Masters Yoda and Mace Windu. Vebb's notable lack of self-control that went against his Jedi teachings caused Yoda to question the war's effects on the Jedi Order.[4]

Personality and traits

"His heart was in the right place, but he tried to answer Grievous's power with his own."
―Kit Fisto — (audio)Listen (file info)
Nahdar Vebb

Nahdar Vebb had orange skin and a single barbel on his chin, an indication of his youth. Although Vebb was honored to serve as a Jedi Knight, he was an impulsive individual who often sought conflict instead of peace, contrary to the Jedi Code.[9] Vebb cared deeply for the well-being of his species and became consumed by his need to avenge the suffering the Mon Calamari experienced at the hands of the Separatist Council. Vebb eagerly embraced the opportunity to travel to the third moon of Vassek with the news that Nute Gunray could be brought into his grasp.[1] While on the Vassek moon, Vebb insisted upon using the Force for simple tasks such as making his way through a dense fog bank and spinning Gunray's chair. Unlike the calmer approach of his former Master, Kit Fisto, Vebb was prepared to force his way into Grievous's castle with his lightsaber.[4]

While he was within the castle, Vebb became increasingly brutal, first in his dismembering of the battle droids and later during his attacks on Grievous. Upon discovering that he was indeed within the Confederate general's sanctuary, Vebb excitedly jumped at the opportunity to fight Grievous, both for the sake of the war effort and to avenge the Jedi who had been slain by the general. Vebb was angered after seeing the trophies that Grievous had taken from the Jedi he had murdered and attacked the cyborg mercilessly during their first encounter, attempting to destroy Grievous even after the general was pinned to the floor following the amputation of his legs. When Grievous escaped, an infuriated Vebb blamed the clone troopers for getting in his way.[4]

Despite his anger at the troopers, Vebb was greatly upset by the death of Commander Fil, swearing retribution on Grievous for the loss. Fisto reprimanded him for his anger, though Vebb's views on the matter went unchanged—the war had already taken its toll on the young Jedi, changing the Mon Calamari's outlook on proper actions for a Jedi.[4] Vebb believed that veteran Jedi such as Fisto were unable to understand that conventional Jedi practices became obsolete in wartime.[1] Although Vebb disagreed with his old Master, the Mon Calamari eventually gave his life so that Fisto could escape the castle.[4]

Powers and abilities

"I didn't forget to teach you restraint, did I, my old Padawan?"
"I'm sorry, Master. I got carried away."
"Those who have power should restrain themselves from using it."
―Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb, after the latter breaks apart segments of an already-defunct droid with the Force — (audio)Listen (file info)

As a Mon Calamari, Nahdar Vebb was capable of breathing under water for up to thirty hours.[9] He was skilled in healing wounds through the Force and used this ability to aid Republic forces during the Clone Wars.[6] Vebb was capable of clearing the air around Grievous's castle of the dense fog that covered the surrounding region. The Mon Calamari was also a skilled duelist, able to single-handedly defeat four IG-100 MagnaGuards and defend himself against Grievous for a short time, but was eventually slain by the cyborg.[4]

Behind the scenes

Nahdar Vebb was first mentioned in the 2008 sourcebook Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Visual Guide, and later appeared in the 2008 first season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. His character was seen during the opening "newsreel" of the episode "Rookies," and was later introduced in "Lair of Grievous," in which he was voiced by Tom Kenny, who also provided the voice of Nute Gunray in the same episode.[3] Vebb later received individual entries in The Clone Wars Campaign Guide and The Art of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, both published in 2009.

Vebb's design was inspired by the first Mon Calamari in the Star Wars saga, Admiral Ackbar. The Jedi's clothing incorporates elements of Ackbar's uniform from Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, such as the collar and cuffs of the sleeves.[10]

Inconsistencies

The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, which was published shortly before the original air date of "Lair of Grievous," introduced inconsistencies in the character's backstory. While the episode and the young reader book Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Grievous Attacks! indicate that Vebb's training was completed during the Clone Wars, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia claims that his training was completed before that of Fisto's other Mon Calamari apprentice, Bant Eerin. Eerin's Knighthood was established in the young reader novel Jedi Quest: The Changing of the Guard, which takes place several years prior to the Clone Wars. The Changing of the Guard was published in 2004, four years before the release of both "Lair of Grievous" and The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.

In video game portrayals of the Mission to Vassek's third moon, Nahdar Vebb is conspicuously absent. In the non-canon computer game Path of the Jedi, available on Cartoon Network's official site, Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, or Yoda are aiding Fisto in place of Vebb. Nahdar is also absent from the mission in the Nintendo DS version of the 2009 video game Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Republic Heroes.

Nahdar Vebb was a Mon Calamari Jedi Knight who served as a Jedi General and Healer during the Clone Wars and died at the hands of General Grievous.

Biography

Early life

Nahdar Vebb was born on the planet Dac and at the age of one he was discovered by a Quarran Jedi (the name of this Jedi is unconfirmed) who took him to the Jedi Temple. Vebb was put into the Katarn clan at the age of four. He was later put into the class of Jedi Master Sora Bulq. Vebb was a hot tempered individual which occasionally led to concern on behalf of the Jedi Masters. Finally at the age of sixteen he was selected as a Padawan by Jedi Master Kit Fisto.

Clone wars

Battle of Geonosis

Nahdar: "Hello Master."
Kit: "Nahdar? I thought you were dead"
Nahdar: "Ha ha ha, you're not getting rid of me that easily."
— Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb after Vebbs presumed death

There is little knowledge about Nahdar's life before the Battle of Geonosis but it was known that he had been Kit Fisto's Padawan for approximately seven years. Nahdar, along with his master, fought in the Petranaki arena. Nahdar was injured by a droideka and presumed dead. However because of his considerable healing skills Nahdar survived and shortly before the Jedi left Geonosis, victorious in the battle, he found his way back to his masters side.

Battle of Axion

Later in the war, Nahdar passed the trials and was promoted to Jedi Knight. Nahdar fought alongside Grand Master Yoda in the Battle of Axion. Vebb was honored to fight beside the renowned Grand Master and was determined to impress him. However Nahdar's hot head clouded his judgment during the battle as he refused to retreat even though victory was impossible. Yoda eventually convinced him to leave and the army retreated but had sustained heavy losses. Nahdar was angry and upset at the loss an believed it was his fault but Yoda told him that they would have lost the battle either way. What the Grand Master didn't point out was that Nahdar had sacrificed more clones than necessary.

Nahdar cheered up when he was contacted by Luminara Unduli and Ahsoka Tano, who informed him of Nute Gunray's escape from Republic custody. Nahdar eagerly jumped at the chance to capture the viceroy and was even more delighted when he discovered he'd be reunited with his former master Kit Fisto.

Final mission

Grievous: "Greetings, young Jedi. Where is your master?"
Vebb: "You will find out soon enough. You can't defeat us all."
Grievous: "Of course I can."
— Grievous and Nahdar Vebb[src]

Nahdar's final mission took place on the third mood of Vassek. He took several clones with him, including Clone Commander Fil whom he'd befriended during the war. Nahdar then met up with Master Fisto who happily congratulated him on passing the trials. Then the group began their mission. Nahdar cleared all the mist around General Grievous' castle with one sweep of his arms and the group infiltrated the castle, not knowing that they were in the cyborg Generals lair.

The group heard the voice of Nute Gunray coming from a chair and the two Jedi quickly cut through several battle droids, but only found a hologram of Gunray. The viceroy taunted them, then vanished and was replaced by the Sith Lord Count Dooku who told the Jedi that he would offer them "an alternative prize". A button flashed on the arm of the chair and Nahdar pressed it, opening a secret passageway. As they went down the passageway they found some statues of a Kaleesh General and at the end they found bits of armor that made them realize they were in the lair of General Grievous.

When Grievous returned to his castle, Nahdar, Fisto, and the clones attacked him, but the cyborg managed to escape despite having his legs severed by Kit. He killed several of the clones before fleeing to his secret control room where he was repaired by his medical droid, EV-A4-D. Vebb blamed the clones for getting in his way but then apologized to Commander Fil, telling him that he hadn't meant that. 

Kit suggested that they should retreat and Nahdar reluctantly agreed but then they were locked inside the castle. Nahdar tried to cut their way out with his lightsaber he discovered that the door was made of a lightsaber resistant metal. Then a hologram of Grievous appeared and told them that his home had been prepared for intruders before opening a trap door. Nahdar and Kit jumped clear and Fil saved himself by firing a cable into the ceiling, but the other clone fell into a Carbonite pit. Then they were set upon by Grievous' pet rogwart Gor. Gor grabbed Fil with his long tail and smashed the clone into the walls and floor. Nahdar attempted to save his friend by slicing off Gor's tail but was too late. Kit finished Gor with a stab to the neck and the grief-stricken Nahdar vowed to avenge Fil's death, which was something that disturbed his former master.

The two Jedi arrived outside Grievous' control room and after the cyborg left with four magnaguards. Kit used the Force to guide his hands to the right slabs at the right time, in order to open the control room. Unfortunately EV-A4-D saw them through a security holocam and warned his master. Kit went through the door but Nahdar, who was barely suppressing his hatred towards Grievous, refused to follow instead turning to confront the cyborg and his magnaguards alone, which was a brave but foolish act.

Nahdar clashed with one magnaguard then back-flipped over another and stabbed it in the back. Picking up the fallen guard's electrostaff, the Mon Calamari blocked the first magnaguard,s blow with the staff and then slashed it through the torso. Then, with impressive accuracy, he hurled the staff like a javelin straight through the third magnaguard's extra eye, which was built into its chest. He easily destroyed the last guard and then faced Grievous himself.
Nahdar duels Grievous in his final moments.

Though Vebb's prowess allowed him to hold his own against the cyborg, Grievous proved to be too much for him. The cyborg used one lightsaber to shove Nahdar's lightsaber up, leaving him defenseless against a fatal thrust through the abdomen. The dying Nahdar made a desperate attempt to slice off Grievous' head, but the cyborg ducked and pulled his lightsaber out of the Mon Calamari's torso. Even Nahdar's healing skills couldn't save him this time and he died. Kit, who had watched the duel from the control room was devastated by his death. 

Aftermath

Windu: "What about your former Padawan?"
Fisto: "His heart was in the right place, but he tried to answer Grievous's power with his own."
Yoda: "To answer power with power, the Jedi way this is not. In this war, a danger there is of losing who we are."
— Kit Fisto reports to Masters Yoda and Mace Windu of the Jedi Council[src]

When Kit confronted Grievous on the landing platform outside the castle, he managed to retrieve Nahdar's lightsaber by slicing off one of the cyborgs hands. Kit then weilded it along with his own in an impressive display of Jar'Kai but was forced to retreat to his starfighter when three of Grievous' magnaguards arrived to help their master. Kit took Nahdar's lightsaber with him but what he did with it after that in unknown.

Back on Coruscant Fisto reported to Yoda and Mace Windu and sadly said that although Nahdar had been trying to do the right thing he shouldn't have battled Grievous alone. Fisto was then comforted by Aayla Secura whom he had romantic feelings for.

Personality and traits

Nahdar Vebb: "But in this war, strength prevails. The rules have changed"
Kit Fisto: "No Nahdar. I fear that you are the one who has changed."
―Nahdar Vebb and Kit Fisto

Nahdar Vebb had always been a hot headed individual which caused concern by the Jedi Masters when he was a youngling. However during the Clone Wars, Vebb's personality became darker and more brutal and he preferred to settle things by fighting rather than talking. Nahdar hated General Grievous because of all the people he'd killed, and he was barely able to control this hatred. His emotions often clouded his judgment which eventually cost him his life.

Despite the darker aspects of his personality, Nahdar had a good heart and cared about other people particularly his own species, despite the fact that he hadn't been to his homeworld since he was a baby. He also cared about his clones and though he blamed the clones for Grievous' escape, he apologized afterward. He was especially close friends with Commander Fil. Nahdar also had a close bond with Kit and before his personality darkened. He would sometimes joke with Kit as proven after the Battle of Geonosis, when he casually strode up to his master after his presumed death and said that Kit wasn't getting rid of him so easily. However as the war went on his sense of humor faded almost completely.

Powers and abilities

Nahdar Vebb was a skilled Healer and used the power to keep himself alive during the battle of Geonosis as well as using it on his clones numerous times in the Clone Wars. During his training under Kit Fisto, Nahdar learned how to use Force Water Orb. However he rarely used this technique as it only worked underwater. Nahdar was able to use Telekinesis to clear the fog hiding Grievous' castle with one sweep of his arms. However, Vebb appeared to take the Force for granted because he used it for simple tasks such as turning around Nute Gunray's chair.

Nahdar was also a skilled duelist, able to defeat four magnaguards with ease and hold his own against Grievous for a while. Like his master, he used Shii-Cho in combat but didn't master the style. The Mon Calamari also had a splendid aim, as proven when he hurled an electrostaff like a javelin straight into the eye built into a magnaguard's chest.

Because he was a Mon Calamari, Nahdar could breathe underwater for up to thirty hours.
