A Force-sensitive, Kanzhei Opli was trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order, attaining the rank of Jedi Master and training independently as a Jedi Beast Master. Serving the Order and the Galactic Republic for decades, Opli was responsible for creating the nobilis subspecies of the fierce tuk'ata beasts. Gifting the two nobilis creatures to the people of Vaklin for their devotion to the Order and support of its members, the Vaklin people kept the beasts inside the Jedi Temple there to safeguard its halls. Considered to be one of the finest Beast Masters of the Order by the adherents on Vaklin, the nobilis creatures were slain by Darth Vader in 19 BBY as the Galactic Empire asserted its control over the world.
