- "Strike quickly!"
- ―Jor Drakas
Jor Drakas was a Twi'lek male Jedi Knight and General during the Clone Wars who participated in two battles against the Chiss Dark Jedi Sev'rance Tann circa 22 BBY. Upon Drakas' and Tann's first encounter at the Kaer Orbital Platform—in which Drakas unsuccessfully tried to prevent Tann from rebuilding the Separatist Droid Army—Tann retreated after completing her mission. However, during the battle for natural energy reserves on the Republic world of Sarapin, Tann killed Drakas.
Jor Drakas, a Twi'lek male, was a Jedi Knight who served the Galactic Republic as a Jedi General during the Clone Wars. Shortly after the Battle of Geonosis in 22 BBY, the Confederate leader Count Dooku sent General Sev'rance Tann—a Chiss Dark Jedi serving the Confederacy—to the abandoned Confederate base at Kaer Orbital Platform. There, Tann was assigned to rebuild the Separatist Droid Army in secret from the Republic. However, Tann's operation was discovered, and Drakas soon led a task force of clone troopers against Tann. After their Acclamator-class assault ship landed on the platform, Drakas' troops established a base of operations and began making raids on Tann's territory. After several small skirmishes, Tann chose to retreat, but not before finishing the construction of a considerable amount of droids.
Drakas was then assigned to guard the Republic energy world of Sarapin after the Republic learned that the Separatists would attempt to secure the planet's natural energy reserves. On Sarapin, Drakas occupied the Citadel located on Mount Corvast, the planet's capital. It was not long before Tann's forces approached Sarapin, destroyed orbital defenses, and landed on the planet. Using the stolen Republic Decimator technology—a ground vehicle equipped with a powerful laser—Tann overwhelmed Mount Corvast and destroyed the Citadel. Drakas survived its destruction and attacked Tann with his lightsaber. However, he was quickly slain by the Chiss general. With Drakas' death, Sarapin fell into the hands of the Confederacy.
