Black, later White
|Chronological and political information|
Jek-14 was a Force-sensitive Sith clone created by Count Dooku (Darth Tyranus) on Kamino. He was originally intended to be part of a much larger "Sith clone" army. After dueling and evading Mace Windu and Yoda, he escaped to Geonosis, where he presented himself to Darth Sidious in the flesh.
However, when Jedi Master Yoda attacked Tyranus sometime later, and offered Jek the choice to join the light side of the Force, a dispute between Yoda and Dooku burst Jek into an outrage and wanted nothing more than be left in solitude, creating things as time went by. Eventually, he joined forces the Jedi after his betrayal from the Sith. He had aged into an elder by the era of the Rebellion, but still strong enough to build spaceships.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Jek-14 was incredibly powerful in the Force. His dangerously enhanced Force powers were given to him when Count Dooku channeled Force energy from an extremely powerful Kaiburr lightsaber crystal into his cloning chamber.
Jek-14 was able to fire continuous, powerful bursts of presumably Force energy from one of his arms, which was transparent and seemed to be a reservoir of his power. He was agile, performing complex flips with ease and was able to erect a powerful, visible Force barrier to protect himself. Jek could use telekinesis effortlessly, with great precision and power, and could create complex and even artful structures with that power. His powers were varied, and he was seen to fire a ball of Force energy that caused a kinetic blast/ shockwave, absorb, deflect, and redirect Force energy, shoot Force lightning, and form a giant sphere of Force energy, that also gave off heat. He was also capable of holding off Jedi Masters Yoda and Mace Windu, and piloting a starfighter. Upon arrival on Geonosis, he created a dent in the ground with his Force powers to show off to Darth Sidious. He also wielded a blue lightsaber with a white hilt of an unidentified design. He wore an early precursor to the phase II clone armor and stole a starfighter.
Behind the scenesEdit
Jek-14 appears in The Phantom Clone, the first episode of LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles television special. He appears in the final two Yoda Chronicles as well. In LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles video game, he is buildable as a unit and the player must chase him in a series of missions as well. Jek-14 is released in 2 sets, Jek-14's Stealth Starfighter and the Jedi Scout Fighter. In the second set his helmet and armor are plain white as opposed to both red and white. In Jek 14's Stealth Starfighter set he carries a blue lightsaber with a white hilt.
Jek-14's stealth starfighter looks almost exactly like a mostly black version of the much later E-wing Escort Starfighter other than a change in positioning and model of Astromech droid, R4-G0 and minor added functionality that may simply stem from misunderstanding the design; the top cannon being able to swivel in a 180° arc and movable struts enabling minor repositioning of the wings for landing like S-foils.
Jek-14 also appears in the LEGO Mini Movies.
During the Clone Wars, after escaping Geonosis, Jek-14 was the subject of a manhunt between the Separatists and Republic. Chased by clone troopers and bounty hunters, he escaped using his stealth fighter.
