A Force-sensitive, Ruchikila was Jedi Initiate who was training in the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple's academy during the Clone Wars between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems.
Grand Master Yoda oversaw Ruchikila's clan's training. During a session of blindfolded seeker testing, Yoda received an urgent message from Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his former apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, from the planet Lanteeb. On an undercover mission, the two Jedi's request was met without hesitation and Master Yoda left Ruchikila and the other Initiates to test by themselves for a time.
