A Force-sensitive, Gilp was inducted into the Jedi Order and received training in the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. When the Clone Wars erupted between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Page remained at the Temple and participated in the 19 BBY Jedi Temple Apprentice Tournament. Administrated by Master Ilena Xan, Gilp faced off against fellow Initiate Page .
Behind the scenesEdit
In addition to an entry for Gilp, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia mistakenly combined Gilp's name with Padawan Page in Page's entry, listing the latter as "Page, Glip." In the novel, Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, the names of the pairs of Padawans that are about to duel each other are being called by Master Ilena Xan. Each pair is listed, surname only; i.e. "Flerp, Zrim" and "Page, Gilp." Later Xan calls out, "Chizzik, Enwandung-Esterhazy," thus providing the reader with concrete evidence that only surnames were being used.
