Melari Ruxon was a female Duros Force-sensitive. A member of the New Jedi Order, she was a Padawan by 43.5 ABY. She and another apprentice, Reeqo Swen, assisted Jedi Knight Leia Organa Solo and her husband Han Solo in the detainment of the insane Jedi Yaqeel Saav'etu and Bazel Warv. Shortly after, however, Ruxon and Swen decided to resign from the Order, as they were unhappy with the way Daala was beginning to take control of the Jedi.
