"The best blades are kept in their sheaths."

Culoph was an individual who served as a Sky Judge on the planet Tython before the founding of the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic. The individual was renowned for being a legendary swordsman who had many victories during wartime.[2] After the end of the New Sith Wars and the Ruusan Reformation, Culoph was quoted by Jedi Battlemaster Skarch Vaunk in a guidebook called The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force when Vaunk was explaining the tenets of Form "Zero", which emphasized a Jedi's ability to seek non-violent methods to end a conflict.[1] During the Clone Wars, Jedi Grand Master Yoda quoted the Sky Judge during a conversation with Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi regarding the Republic's war with the Confederacy of Independent Systems.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

"Also in this section is a reference to the Tythonese Sky Judge Culoph, who is a new character created to voice an old quote. His quote, 'The best blades are kept in their sheaths,' is from the comic Star Wars Jedi: Yoda."
―Daniel Wallace explains the creation of Culoph's character[src]

Culoph was first mentioned as an anonymous person in the comic Jedi: Yoda, which was written by Jeremy Barlow and published on July 21, 2004. Culoph was officially created in The Jedi Path: A Manual for Students of the Force, written by Daniel Wallace and released on September 28, 2010. Wallace later explained that the character was developed to give an attribution to a quote that appeared in Jedi: Yoda.[3]
