Coleman Kcaj was a Force-sensitive Ongree Jedi Master who served the Jedi Order during the last years of the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, he gained a seat on the Jedi High Council, and survived for years during the Jedi Purge.
Bombing of the Jedi Temple hangarEdit
Kcaj was present during a Council meeting concerning the fate of Padawan Ahsoka Tano, who was accused of the murder of Letta Turmond and orchestrating the bombing of the Jedi Temple. Wilhuff Tarkin said that the Senate wished to put her in a militrary trial. The Council expelled Tano from the Order after a debate and she was put on trial by the Galactic Republic, but Padawan Barriss Offee was ultimately revealed to be the true culprit.
Clone trooper Tup, whose malfunctioning and secret biochip caused him to murder Jedi Master Tiplar, was sent to the hospital. Kcaj was present through holographic form when Jedi Master Shaak Ti turned to the council as she believed that Tup may have a tumor. Tup's friend, Fives, believed that there was a tumor in his head after discovering that there was a control chip in his head, but was silenced. Kcaj and the other Jedi didn't know that what Tup believed was the truth.
Mission to BardottaEdit
Later, Kcaj was present when the Council agreed to send Jedi Master Mace Windu and Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks had an assignment to investigate a number of disappearances on Bardotta after Queen Julia specifically requested Binks, confusing both the Council and the Senate.
Mission to the moon of Obah DiahEdit
Kcaj was present when Plo Koon reported that he found the lightsaber of Master Sifo-Dyas. Yoda confirmed that it was and decided to investigate. Kcaj was again present when it was reported that Dooku was responsible for the purchase of the clone army. The Council decided to keep it a secret since people would lose trust in the Republic if the public knew the truth.
Kcaj was present when Grand Master Yoda told the Council that he had heard the voice of long-dead Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn in his head and hoped to learn the meaning of the communications from beyond.The Council all meditated with Yoda, but nobody heard the voice. Yoda would then go to Dagobah to learn how to become immortal and succeeded his task.
Later, Kcaj was present when Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker discussed a giant kyber crystal they had found on Utapau. He was present again when they reported that the crystal has been destroyed, causing Yoda to remind the Council of stories were the kyber crystals were used for weapons that the Jedi and Sith used to fight each other.
Mission to UtapauEdit
Near the end of the war, Kcaj was present when the Council granted Skywalker a seat on the Jedi Council, after he had been appointed there by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. He was also present when they discussed about how Palpatine had told them that General Grievous was hiding on Utapau and recommended they send Skywalker. However, they decided that they needed a Jedi Master, who will have more experience than him. Shortly thereafter, Palpatine declared himself Emperor and Skywalker, having become the Sith Lord Darth Vader, helped destroy the Jedi Order.
