Obba was a Jedi Master in the Jedi Order around the time following the New Sith Wars. A contemporary of Masters Worror Dowmat and Valenthyne Farfalla, they served together in the Army of Light. Having survived the war, he was appointed to the Council of First Knowledge, and trained many in the art of recovering Sith artifacts. In 990 BBY, he was part of the team selected to arrest the last Sith Lord on Ambria. Under the command of Master Tho'natu, the team traveled to Ambria, where they were attacked by a deranged Darovit. Assuming him to be the Sith Lord, they returned to Coruscant, bringing with them the lightsaber hilts of the five Jedi who had recently been killed on Tython.

During his time with the Order Obba trained two Padawans, Medd Tandar and Set Harth, however, Harth rejected the ways of the Jedi Order and become a Dark Jedi. Tandar was later killed during the assassination of Gelba, the leader of the mining caste on the planet Doan. After Tandar's death, Princess Serra of Doan met with Obba to ensure him that the assassination had not been ordered by the Doan Royal House.

Biography

Taken from his homeworld of Ithor at an early age, Obba was trained in the Order of the Jedi. At the outbreak of the war with the Sith, Obba joined the ranks of the Army of Light under the command of Lord Hoth. Fighting alongside his companions, he survived the battles, returning to Coruscant with the army's dissolution with the Ruusan Reformation. Along with Master Tho'natu, Obba traveled to Ambria as part of a strike team tasked with eliminating the Sith. Upon their arrival at Caleb's camp, they found the hilts of five slain Jedi and a sickly individual they thought to be Darth Bane. In reality it was a deranged Darovit, driven mad by Darth Zannah. Master Tho'natu struck down the sick Human, causing the Jedi to believe that the Sith were extinct.

In the wake of the costly battle with the Sith, the Order began to erase all memory from the galaxy of Sith lore. A member of the Council of First Knowledge, Master Obba trained many Jedi Knights the art of securing Sith artifacts for the Council. Taking Set Harth under his tutelage after the Padawan's first master's death, Harth eventually divorced himself from the Order, hoarding a secret stash of Sith artifacts for himself. Another apprentice of Obba's, Medd Tandar completed the Jedi Trials and began work for the Council. On a mission to Doan to recover a cash of talisman, Tandar was killed by the Huntress, who was hired to kill a group of rebels plotting to overthrow the royal family of Doan.

Upon his former apprentice's death, Obba planned to begin a formal investigation on Doan. Not wanting a conflict with the Order, the Doan Royal Family sent a representative, Princess Serra to ensure the Master that they would find and persecute the assassin. Meeting the diplomats in his private quarters in the Tower of First Knowledge, Master Obba agreed to the terms that Serra presented to him, promising to hold off an investigation provided that the Doanians provided concrete evidence absolving their involvement.
