Early life

Born to Sembric and Ashielle Skamini on the Mid Rim world of Mon Gazza, Zett was identified as a newborn as Force-sensitive, and sent by his parents to the Jedi Order.[1]

During Zett's seventh year of life, his parents were brutally murdered. Though the boy had grown up with the Jedi and left his family as a newborn, he began to receive visions of his relatives and planet of birth. Talk of this reached the Jedi Knight Mierme Unill as he investigated the murder of the Skaminis, and, with the permission of the Jedi Council, the Knight related Zett's early history to him, hoping his visions would be the key to finding the killers.[1]

Mierme's intuition was correct; Zett's clues led to the Black Sun organization, and arrests were made. Impressed with the boy's maturity, Mierme took Zett as his Padawan learner.[1]

While Obi-Wan Kenobi searched for the planet Kamino in the Jedi Archives, Jukassa walked up to Jocasta Nu to ask a question after Obi-Wan Kenobi spoke to her.[3]

Though it seemed Zett was gifted in farsight, his master was unable to expand on this; the outbreak of the Clone Wars made necessary a heavy focus on combat training over more passive abilities. However, Unill was soon killed in the growing conflict, and Zett found himself back at the Jedi Temple amongst the other similarly 'orphaned' Padawans. He continued his studies under Cin Drallig's tutelage.[1]

The Great Jedi Purge

In 19 BBY, Jukassa fell in combat against a detachment of the 501st Legion when it attacked the Jedi Temple under the leadership of Darth Vader. He fought through the temple, killing many clone troopers and eventually reaching the outside of the Temple.[2]

Zett holds off the clone troopers.

Jukassa fought his way out of the doors of the temple and cut through the clones' ranks, causing the casualties to rise even more.[2]

He had almost made an escape towards the landing platform and a civilian speeder owned by Senator Bail Prestor Organa of Alderaan. He felled eight clone troopers and wounded Commander Appo, who led the attack, under the command of Darth Vader. He defended himself using his trained lightsaber skills, but was shot down by Sergeant Fox before reaching Organa.[2]

After seeing the clones' brutality firsthand, Bail fled from the Temple and immediately departed Coruscant in the Tantive IV, determined to save as many Jedi as he could.[2]

When the Galactic Empire emerged, official records compiled by Sate Pestage stated that Jukassa was executed for threatening to murder Senator Organa.[4]

Powers and abilities

Zett Jukassa possessed a strong connection to the Force and was gifted in farsight. He was one of the Jedi Temples most promising students and put up a valiant defence during the raid on the Jedi Temple. Impressively the young Padawan almost escaped the Temple but was finally shot down by Sergeant Fox before he could reach Bail Organa's speeder.

Behind the scenes

Zett Jukassa was played by Jett Lucas, son of George Lucas. Zett's name is Jett's name, only with the "J" replaced with a "Z", and Jukassa is an alienlike spelling of Lucas. This method of basing a fictional entity on a real-life person's name is known as a tuckerism. The character went through many name changes through development, including Titi Jukassa, Tado Jukassa, and Tado.[1]

Jett Lucas also played the Padawan Warpoc Skamini in Attack of the Clones, though after the release of Revenge of the Sith, the two characters were merged into one with a backstory.[5]
