Danak was a male Jedi member of the Jedi Order during the Cold War against the Sith Empire. He was part of Master Surro's group of Jedi that served as the Galactic Republic's scouts on the planet Balmorra after Grand Marshal Cheketta's defeat at the Balmorran Arms Factory. Danak was sent to gather information on the factory defenses, but was noticed by a Twi'lek named Ivo. Ivo recognized Danak as a spy and, assuming him to be a member of Balmorran resistance, decided to turn him in to the Empire. Ivo faked a leg injury and when Danak approached him to help, he was stunned and delivered into Imperial Captain Bowenn, who executed him.
