Ban-yaro was a male Jedi Master serving the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars as the Chief Communications expert at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.


A Force-sensitive male, Ban-yaro was trained in the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. Attaining the rank of Jedi Knight after completing his Trials of Knighthood, Ban-yaro went onto pursue independent study as a Sentinel specialized in communications. After serving the Order for some time, Ban-yaro was made a Jedi Master by the Jedi High Council. At some point as a Master, Ban-yaro was appointed to the position of Chief Communications expert at the Jedi Temple communication center.[1]

When the Clone Wars erupted between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Master Ban-yaro remained at the Temple to help coordinate Jedi Command. When Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker were appointed a secret assignment by Grand Master Yoda, Ban-yaro was advised to keep all that he heard a secret so as not to endanger the pair. As Kenobi and Skywalker sent scrambled transmissions to the Temple, Ban-yaro kept the Grand Master informed of their mission on Lanteeb. When the Jedi honed in on Confederacy General Lok Durd and his deadly nanovirus, Senator Bail Organa aided Ban-yaro and the Jedi to end the Separatist threat.[1]
