Fisto was born on the [[planet]] [[Glee Anselm]], in the [[Sabilon]] region. He was known for his trademark smile and his unusually close relationship with fellow [[Jedi]] [[Aayla Secura]], a relationship that occasionally pushed at the boundaries of the portions of the [[Jedi Code]] that forbade attachments.

His distinctive head tentacles contained highly sensitive olfactory receptors that allowed him to detect [[Pheromone|pheromonal]] expressions of emotion and other changes in body chemistry. This was indeed a unique attribute not afforded to any other Jedi, naturally, or through the power of [[the Force]]. As such, he had hoped to be assigned to the [[Council of Reconciliation]], but was instead elected to the Jedi High Council.

Fresh off from dispatching the [[Pirates of Iridium]] early in [[22 BBY]], Kit was later chosen as one of the [[Geonosis strike team|two hundred Jedi]] that accompanied [[Mace Windu]] to [[Geonosis]] to [[Mission to Geonosis|rescue]] [[Obi-Wan Kenobi]], [[Anakin Skywalker]], and [[Senator]] [[Padmé Amidala]] from the [[Confederacy of Independent Systems|Separatist]] leaders. He fought against hundreds of [[B1 battle droid|B1]] and [[B2 super battle droid|B2 battle droid]]s in the [[Petranaki arena]], and even disabled a droid that was accidentally built with the head of [[C-3PO]], grinning the entire time.

Kit survived the arena battle, escaping in the same [[Low Altitude Assault Transport/infantry|LAAT/i]] [[gunship]] as Masters [[Yoda]], Mace Windu, and [[Ki-Adi-Mundi]]. Then, along with the other Jedi survivors, he led the new Grand Army of the Republic in the [[Battle of Geonosis]], the start of the Clone Wars.

Soon after dispatching the [[Pirates of Iridium]] in early [[22 BBY]], Fisto was chosen as one of the [[Geonosis strike team|two hundred Jedi]] that accompanied [[Mace Windu]] to [[Mission to Geonosis|rescue]] [[Obi-Wan Kenobi]], [[Anakin Skywalker]], and [[Senator]] [[Padmé Amidala]] from the [[Confederacy of Independent Systems|Separatist]] leaders at the [[Geonosian]] [[Petranaki arena|execution arena]]. Amidst hundreds of droids, he came across one with the head of [[C-3PO]]; he pinned him underneath a [[B2 super battle droid]] before giving his signature grin.
   
In one of Kit's first Clone Wars campaigns, he led the Republic's forces in [[Battle of Mon Calamari (Clone Wars)|defeating]] the [[Quarren]] [[Quarren Isolation League|Separatist league]] on the watery world of [[Mon Calamari (planet)|Mon Calamari]] and later forged a new accord on the world that led to joint Quarren-[[Mon Calamari]] representation in the [[Galactic Senate]].

Kit Fisto later went back to Mon Calamari when he found out that there were still enemies there. He discovered that the Isolation League was still being led by strange individual jellyfish-like creatures known as [[Moappa]] that joined together to become one being with great intelligence and [[telepathy]]. Kit defeated this being by scattering the individual creatures throughout the ocean.

In one of his first Clone Wars campaigns, Fisto led a team of [[clone SCUBA trooper]]s in [[Battle of Mon Calamari (Clone Wars)|Battle of Mon Calamari]] against the Separatist-allied [[Quarren Isolation League]], destroying a [[Quarren]] [[crab cannon]] in the process. Kit later forged a new accord on the world that led to joint Quarren-[[Mon Calamari]] representation in the [[Galactic Senate]].

Some months later, he would travel to [[Devaron]] with fellow Jedi [[Tholme]], Aayla Secura, [[Tr'a Saa]], and the [[An'ya Kuro|Dark Woman]]. Their mission was to locate and destroy a Separatist base launching raids on Republic supply convoys. While Tholme and the Dark Woman were injured and Aayla was battling [[Aurra Sing]], Kit and T'ra attacked and captured the Separatist base.
+
Fisto later journeyed back to [[Mon Calamari (planet)|Mon Calamari]] upon discovering that the Isolation League had come back into being, under the leadership of strange jellyfish-like creatures known as [[Moappa]]. These beings grouped together to become one great beast, possessing superlative intelligence and the power of [[telepathy]]. Fisto defeated this being by scattering the individual creatures throughout the waters.
   
During the height of the Clone Wars, Fisto was the first Jedi to fight and defeat a new type of droid that was given the name "[[JK-13 combat droid|Jedi Killer]]". With Fisto went Obi-Wan Kenobi, one [[Advanced Recon Commando|ARC trooper]], four [[clone trooper]]s, and [[Barrister]] [[Doolb Snoil]], a representative from the Galactic Senate. They headed to [[Ord Cestus]] to negotiate an agreement to sell the "bio-droids" to the Republic. While en route to Ord Cestus, Obi-Wan constructed a [[lightwhip]], which Kit wielded skillfully during the mission. During this mission Fisto took on the alias of a [[Dark Jedi]] named [[Nemonus]] to trick the [[Five Families]]. Near the end of the Ord Cestus mission, he battled [[Asajj Ventress]] in a fierce duel and lost. Luckily, Obi-Wan stepped in before she could kill him. When Asajj was about to behead Obi-Wan, the near-unconscious Kit Fisto quickly stepped in and returned the favor by saving his life.

While Tholme and Kuro lie injured and Secura was holding off [[Aurra Sing]], Fisto and Saa assaulted and captured the base.
   
Eventually, the Jedi learned of a [[bounty]] that had been placed on the heads of all Jedi. To stop this threat, Kit traveled with fellow Jedi Masters Mace Windu, [[Agen Kolar]], and [[Saesee Tiin]] to [[the Rig]]—the base of operations of the [[Crimson Nova]] chapter of the [[Bounty Hunters' Guild]]. The four made [[Mission to the Rig|quick work]] of the [[bounty hunter]]s, forcing them to drop the job of hunting Jedi.

For years, Fisto's name had been suggested as a candidate for the Jedi High Council. Humble, and not feeling that he had the skills for such an appointment, Kit would always dismiss such offers, feeling he was better suited to the Council of Reconciliation. Eventually, however, Kit's exploits in the Clone Wars answered any lingering doubts to his suitability, and he ascended to a seat on the august body.

At some point during the war, Fisto traveled with fellow Jedi Master [[Plo Koon]] to quell an uprising of inmates at an underwater prison. There they encountered the infamous [[Gen'Dai]] bounty hunter [[Durge]], whom they eventually trapped in the catacombs beneath the prison with the aid of an inmate. Fisto did remark that he would surely escape, though reinforcements would most likely have arrived by then. Plo Koon then decided to defer to Fisto's judgment on the fate of the inmate who aided them, whom Kit decided to trust. He even determined to petition for a reduced sentence for "good behavior", provided the inmate watch their backs while they continued to put down the uprising.

During the [[Second Battle of Coruscant (Clone Wars)|Second Battle of Coruscant]], Fisto, along with Mace Windu, initially provided help with the [[Red Guard]]s in defending [[Supreme Chancellor]] [[Palpatine]]. He even battled some of [[General]] [[Grievous]]'s [[IG-100 MagnaGuard]]s atop a speeding [[mag-lev train]], disposing of them easily, while Windu battled Grievous. However, none were able to save the Chancellor from his capture. After Palpatine was kidnapped, Windu and he piloted a cruiser in an attempt to recover the shuttle that contained the captive Chancellor. This endeavor was met without success, however.

After Chancellor Palpatine revealed himself to be the [[Dark Lord of the Sith]] that had been operating under the Jedi's noses, Kit Fisto once again accompanied Mace Windu, Agen Kolar, and Saesee Tiin to [[Duel in the Chancellor's Office|confront]] him. Kit had a short chat with Agen and Saesee before their gunship departed to the [[Chancellor's office]]. He said he would have been much calmer if Yoda or Obi-Wan Kenobi had been with them. Saesee scolded him for this: he deemed they were sufficient to defeat the Sith Lord without the aid of any other Jedi. The discussion ended when Mace embarked the gunship and immediately ordered the [[Clone trooper pilot|clone pilot]] to set course for the Chancellor's office.

Kit Fisto was a renowned male Nautolan Jedi Master in the waning years of the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, he served as a High Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic, as well as a member of the Jedi High Council.

Biography

Fisto was born on the planet Glee Anselm, in the Sabilon region. He was known for his trademark smile and his unusually close relationship with fellow Jedi Aayla Secura, an attachment that occasionally pushed the limits of the Jedi Code.

File:Kitfisto2.jpg

His distinctive head tentacles contained highly sensitive olfactory receptors that allowed him to detect pheromonal expressions of emotion and other changes in body chemistry. This was indeed a unique attribute not afforded to any other Jedi, either naturally or through the Force. As such, he had hoped to be assigned to the Council of Reconciliation, but was instead elected to the Jedi High Council.

Fisto was a master of Shii-Cho, the first form of lightsaber combat, which he mastered to a degree that made him one of the finest swordsmen in the Order. He was also an extremely skilled swimmer and honed his Jedi abilities to take advantage of his amphibious origins, making him a deadly foe underwater as well as on land. For instance, he was capable of creating and manipulating water currents through use of the Force for both offensive and defensive purposes. Fisto devised his own Force technique from this ability, aptly named the Force water orb.

Ep2kitfistosaber

Kit Fisto's lightsaber.

His lightsaber contained two crystals employing a bifurcating cyclical-ignition pulse that allowed the blade to operate underwater.

In 41 BBY, Fisto took Bant Eerin as his Padawan when her original master, Tahl, was killed.

Clone Wars

"Here we go again."
―Kit Fisto
KitGeonosis

Kit Fisto leads a group of clone troopers in the Battle of Geonosis.

Soon after dispatching the Pirates of Iridium in early 22 BBY, Fisto was chosen as one of the two hundred Jedi that accompanied Mace Windu to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Padmé Amidala from the Separatist leaders at the Geonosian execution arena. Amidst hundreds of droids, he came across one with the head of C-3PO; he pinned him underneath a B2 super battle droid before giving his signature grin.

Fisto survived the arena, escaping in the same gunship as Jedi Masters Yoda, Mace Windu, and Ki-Adi-Mundi. Then, along with the other survivors, he led the new Grand Army of the Republic in the Battle of Geonosis at the start of the Clone Wars.

In one of his first Clone Wars campaigns, Fisto led a team of clone SCUBA troopers in Battle of Mon Calamari against the Separatist-allied Quarren Isolation League, destroying a Quarren crab cannon in the process. Kit later forged a new accord on the world that led to joint Quarren-Mon Calamari representation in the Galactic Senate.

KitFisto-swrep

Master Fisto during the Clone Wars.

Fisto later journeyed back to Mon Calamari upon discovering that the Isolation League had come back into being, under the leadership of strange jellyfish-like creatures known as Moappa. These beings grouped together to become one great beast, possessing superlative intelligence and the power of telepathy. Fisto defeated this being by scattering the individual creatures throughout the waters.

Some months later, he would travel to Devaron with fellow Jedi Tholme, Aayla Secura, Tr'a Saa, and An'ya Kuro. Their mission was to locate and decimate a Separatist foundry launching raids on Republic supply convoys. While Tholme and Kuro lie injured and Secura was holding off Aurra Sing, Fisto and Saa assaulted and captured the base.

During the height of the Clone Wars, Fisto became the first to fight and defeat a new type of droid that was given the name "Jedi Killer". Theses droids were known for their unmatched combat abilities after demonstrating their power on an unfortunate ARC trooper. Accompanying Fisto was Obi-Wan Kenobi, an ARC trooper, four clone troopers, and Barrister Doolb Snoil, a representative of the Galactic Senate. They traveled to Ord Cestus in order to negotiate an agreement that would sell the "bio-droids" to the Republic. During this mission, Fisto went by the false name of Nemonus, a Dark Jedi, to trick the Five Families. Near the end of the operation, he dueled with Asajj Ventress. While he lost to her, he was saved from death by Obi-Wan, who arrived seconds before Ventress finished him. Obi-Wan, however, would have been beheaded if the near-unconscious Fisto had not quickly returned the favor.

Eventually, the Jedi learned of a bounty that had been placed on all Jedi. To end this threat, Fisto traveled with fellow Jedi Masters Mace Windu, Agen Kolar, and Saesee Tiin to the Rig—the base of operations for the Crimson Nova chapter of the Bounty Hunters' Guild. The four made quick work of the bounty hunters, forcing them to drop the price on Jedi.

For years, Fisto's name had been suggested as a candidate for the Jedi High Council. Humble, and feeling that he had not the skills for such an appointment, he would repeatedly decline such offers. Eventually, however, Fisto's exploits in the Clone Wars answered any lingering doubts about his suitability, and he ascended to a seat on the august body.

At some point during the war, Fisto traveled with Jedi Master Plo Koon to quell an uprising of the inmates of an underwater prison. Here they encountered the infamous Gen'Dai bounty hunter Durge, whom they trapped in the catacombs beneath the prison.

After Palpatine was kidnapped, they pursued Grievous's shuttle in one final attempt, but were unsuccessful.

Death

Soon after Palpatine revealed himself to be the Dark Lord of the Sith that the Jedi had been seeking for some time, Kit Fisto once again accompanied Mace Windu, Agen Kolar, and Saesee Tiin to confront him. Fisto briefly chatted with Kolar and Tiin before their gunship departed to the Chancellor's office. He said he would have been much calmer if Yoda or Obi-Wan Kenobi had been with them. Master Tiin scolded him at this; he maintained that they were capable of defeating the Sith Lord without the aid the of other Jedi.

Fisto's Death

Jedi Master Fisto dies at the hands of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine.

Despite his prowess, Fisto's Shii-Cho fighting style could not match Sidious's superior skill. Mere seconds after he had crossed sabers with the Sith Lord, he met his end when Sidious, the very man he had "protected" a few days before, cleaved into his waist, although he was able to survive longer than his companions Agen Kolar and Saesee Tiin. Fisto met an ignominious end with a smile on his face, much to the surprise of Anakin Skywalker when he arrived.

Behind the scenes

Kit Smile

Kit's famous smile.

Kit Fisto first appeared in Attack of the Clones. Originally, his character was designed as a Sith, but since the movie did not call for a Sith of a species other than Human, this was changed.

Zac Jensen played Fisto in Attack of the Clones, but did not replay Fisto in Revenge of the Sith. The role went to stuntman Ben Cooke.

Like Boba Fett, Kit is disproportionately popular among Star Wars fans as a minor character, mainly because of his distinct smile.

In the novelization of Revenge of the Sith, Kit was beheaded by Palpatine, not cleaved into the waist. His death was not described firsthand—instead, Anakin found Fisto's head on the Chancellor's table with the Nautolan's typical smile on it.
