"Dun'La is our best healer. He'll stay with the Admiral while Drok and I join your fighters."
―Te Corso to Captain Bey

Sayar Dun'La was a male Bothan Jedi healer present at the Jedi Order's Hidden Temple when it was visited by the bounty hunter Cade Skywalker in 137 ABY during the Second Imperial Civil War. Skywalker sought to gain the Jedi Council's assistance in assassinating the Emperor and Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Krayt. However, the Council refused, choosing to pursue a potential alliance with the remnants of the Galactic Alliance and the forces of deposed Emperor Roan Fel. Dun'La, along with three other Jedi, was sent to meet with the leader of the Galactic Alliance Remnant, Admiral Gar Stazi. During their discussions, however, a crewmember of Stazi's flagship, the Alliance, shot the Admiral, and the Alliance fleet was attacked by Sith Imperial forces.

Rushing to aid Stazi, Dun'La took the Admiral to the ship's sickbay, where he treated him for his injuries while the Imperial fleet continued to pursue the Alliance forces through hyperspace. When the Admiral Stazi woke, he refused to go into a bacta tank until he had spoken to his second-in-command, Captain Jhoram Bey. After Dun'La patched Stazi through to the bridge, the Admiral was able to provide Bey with the tactic needed to overcome the Sith Imperial fleet.

Biography

"Alive, but his life force flickers. We must get him to the sickbay immediately."
―Sayar Dun'La, after examining Admiral Stazi

A Bothan Jedi healer, Sayar Dun'La, was a member of the New Jedi Order during the Imperial Civil War in 137 ABY.[2] Dun'La was stationed at the Hidden Temple—where the Jedi had fled after the One Sith massacred the Order on Ossus seven years prior—around the time the bounty hunter Cade Skywalker, descendant of Jedi Grand Master Luke Skywalker, came to the Temple in order to request the Jedi's aid in assassinating the Emperor and Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Krayt. The Jedi Council refused and chose instead to pursue a potential alliance with the remnants of the Galactic Alliance and the forces of deposed Emperor Roan Fel.[1]

After Skywalker succeeded in his mission to kill Krayt, Dun'la, along with fellow Jedi Asaak Dan, Drok, and Te Corso, was sent by the Council to discuss the possibility of joining the Alliance and Empire-in-exile in the fight against the Sith. Traveling to the flagship of the Alliance fleet, the Alliance, aboard their X-83 TwinTail starfighters, Dun'La and his fellow Jedi were greeted by the commander of the Alliance Remnant, Admiral Gar Stazi. Their conversation was interrupted, however, by Imperial Knight Sigel Dare—representing the Empire-in-exile—who wished to use one of the Alliance's shuttles to travel to the planet Dac to retrieve her former Master, Treis Sinde. Intrigued by Sinde's history, Asaak Dan offered to accompany Dare on her mission, and, after Stazi convinced the Imperial Knight to allow the Jedi to join her, the two left for Dac while Dun'La and the remaining Jedi were taken to discuss the Council's offer with the Admiral in private.[2]

While Stazi and his second-in-command, Captain Jhoram Bey, discussed the Jedi's presence on the bridge of the Alliance, Te Corso sensed a disturbance in the Force just before the Alliance fleet was attacked by the Sith Imperial First Coruscant Task Force. Just as Stazi began ordering his fleet into action, however, he was shot by one of the ship's crew, the Mon Calamari Tealart, who was quickly disarmed by Drok. Rushing to the Admiral's side, Dun'La felt Stazi's life force flickering and quickly lifted his body with the Force to carry the Admiral to the sick bay. There, the Bothan was able to stabilize Stazi's condition, though the Alliance Commander's wound was serious.[2]

While the fleet fled from the Imperials through hyperspace, Dun'La and the ship's medic continued to treat Stazi. When the Admiral awoke, he refused to go into the bacta tank until he had spoken to Bey, and so Dun'La patched him through to the bridge. Stazi told Bey to use their fleet's frequency vibrations to his advantage. With this knowledge, Bey was able to understand how the Imperials had managed to consistently follow them through hyperspace by using the frequency vibrations from the Alliance's comm array like a beacon. Bey managed to outmaneuver the Sith Imperial commander by having only the Alliance waiting for the Imperial fleet when it left hyperspace, before the rest of the Galactic Alliance fleet jumped into the area from behind to trap them.[2]

Personality and traits

A respected Jedi healer, Sayar Dun'La was trusted by the Jedi Council with being one of the four Jedi sent to discuss the possibility of joining the Alliance and Empire-in-exile in the fight against the Sith.[2]

Powers and abilities

"Dun'La is our best healer. He'll stay with the Admiral while Drok and I join your fighters."
―Te Corso

Sayar Dun'La was regarded as one of the Jedi Order's best Jedi healers. When Admiral Stazi was shot on the bridge of the Alliance, his fellow Jedi had complete faith in his abilities to look after the Alliance Commander. Aside from his healing abilities, Dun'La was also skilled with telekinesis, able to lift Stazi's body and carry him to the sickbay.[2]

Behind the scenes

Sayar Dun'la sketch by Chris Scalf

Sayar Dun'Lar first appeared on the cover of the 26th issue of Star Wars: Legacy, The Hidden Temple, Part 2, released on July 23, 2008, with the cover art drawn by Omar Francia. Because of a surplus of characters in the story, Dun'La and the other three Jedi from the cover of Legacy 26 were not used in the actual comic itself. Originally, they were to accompany Cade Skywalker against the wishes of the Jedi Council in his hunt for Darth Krayt.[3] Dun'La later appeared in the 42nd issue of the comic series, Star Wars Legacy 42: Divided Loyalties, where he was first identified. The issue was released on November 25, 2009 and was written by John Ostrander and penciled by Dave Ross. Dun'La is the second Bothan Jedi healer to appear in the Legacy series following Hosk Trey'lis.
