BiographyEdit

Cin Drallig, a human male, was a master swordsman who served the Jedi Order. Drallig rose to the rank of Jedi Master and led the Jedi Temple Guard during the Clone Wars. As a Master, he was a teacher of lightsaber combat who passed his skills onto new generations of Jedi. He earned the nickname "the Troll" from other members of the Jedi Order.[4]

The Clone WarsEdit

Guarding the TempleEdit

During the Clone Wars, the Jedi Temple was bombed by Padawan Barriss Offee. Before the perpetrator had been caught, the Jedi led an investigation to determine who was behind the attack. Anakin Skywalker approached Drallig, who was standing guard with the Temple Guard at the gates of the Jedi Temple, where protestors were demonstrating against the war and the Jedi Order's involvement in it. Skywalker showed Drallig a holographic image of their then-suspect, Jackar Bowmani, and asked the Jedi Master to be on alert for him. This led to the suspect's wife, Letta Turmond, being taken into custody after spotting the holographic image,[5] and the Jedi ultimately learned that Turmond was part of the plot to attack the Jedi Temple.[6]

The Temple was later attacked by Captain Rackham Sear of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. During the attack, Drallig led two Temple Guards in securing the quarters of the Jedi younglings. He arrived just in time to cut a small explosive drone in half before it detonated in a room with several younglings. He ordered the guards to stay with the younglings and destroy any more explosives that entered the area. Draligg then joined Masters Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi, reporting to them that there were the Younglings were safe, but that there were explosions throughout the Temple and that the source was unknown. Master Depa Billaba and Initiate Caleb Dume ended the attack by confronting Sear on the roof of the Temple, where he committed suicide by leaping off the building.[7]

Fall of the Jedi TempleEdit

At the end of the war, Skywalker turned to the dark side of the Force and became Darth Vader, apprentice to Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine—secretly Darth Sidious, the Dark Lord of the Sith. Vader attacked the Jedi Temple with the 501st Legion of clone troopers, while Palpatine issued Order 66 to force the clones to turn against the Jedi Order. Drallig fought to defend the Jedi Temple alongside Padawans Whie and Bene. The three Jedi were eventually confronted and slain in lightsaber combat by Darth Vader.[3]

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Drallig, the wielder of a green lightsaber,[2] was a skilled swordsman who used his knowledge of lightsaber combat to train other Jedi. He was nonetheless killed in lightsaber combat by Darth Vader during the attack on the Jedi Temple.[3]

For his brief appearance in Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, Cin Drallig was portrayed by prequel trilogy stunt coordinator Nick Gillard, whose name was used as the basis for the character's name.[3] Drallig was later voiced by Robin Atkin Downes in "Sabotage," the seventeenth episode of the fifth season of the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.[5]
