Saesee Tiin was a male Iktotchi, and a member of the Jedi Order during the waning days of the Galactic Republic. A noted starfighter pilot and accomplished Jedi Master, he was one of twelve such masters sitting on the Jedi Council in the final days of the Clone Wars. He was talented and courageous in the area of lightsaber combat and a veteran general of commanding troops in the Clone Wars.


Blockade of NabooEdit

Tiin was promoted to the rank of Jedi Master and appointed to a seat on the Jedi High Council prior to the blockade of Naboo by the Trade Federation. Master Qui-Gon Jinn, who had been sent by Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum to end the blockade alongside his Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi, came before the council after rescuing Queen Padmé Amidala and bringing her to Coruscant. He told the council that he believed he had encountered a Sith Lord on Tatooine and that a slave he freed, Anakin Skywalker, was the Chosen One. The council was skeptical of Jinn's claims, and denied him permission to train Anakin due to him being too old. After Jinn was slain on Naboo by Darth Maul, Tinn and the council attended his funeral and decided to let Kenobi train Skywalker to fulfill Jinn's dying wish.[4]

Separatists CrisisEdit

Tiin was a participant in the Battle of Geonosis, in which he survived.[5]

Clone WarsEdit

During the Clone Wars, Tiin was present at the Jedi Temple when Delta Squad brought back the bodies of Jedi Master Halsey and his apprentice Knox who were killed in the massacre on Devaron. Adi Gallia suspected it was the work of presumed dead Asajj Ventress, but Plo Koon suspected it was a newly appointed Sith Lord. Obi-Wan Kenobi, however, suspected it was the work of a monstrous animal.[6]

Battle of Lola SayuEdit

Saesee Tiin's Starfighter-CR

Tiin took part in the rescue of Even Piell, Wilhuff Tarkin and his men from The Citadel because they were carrying vital information of hyperspace coordinates that could change the scale of the war to the faction in possession of said information. Tiin alongside Masters Adi Gallia, Plo Koon and Kit Fisto rescued the team and returned to Coruscant.[7]

Water WarEdit

Kit Fisto, Anakin Skywalker, and all other Republic troops were trapped in a losing battle against their opposition's superior strength provided by the Quarren and Aqua droids. Kit Fisto and the others manage to contact the Jedi Temple with a faint signal but it was too weak and within moments collapsed. Mace Windu understood the broken communication as sign of the Republic's impending defeat however noting that it would take a considerable time to train any new SCUBA troopers, the situation was dire. On this, Yoda recommended that they should ask help from a suitable ally of the Republic. Master Tiin suggested they contact the Gungans who were an amphibious species with a standing army and planet located near Mon Cala.[8]

Fugitive PadawanEdit

Tiin also partook in deciding the fate of Jedi Fugitive Ahsoka Tano after the bombing of the Jedi Temple where he, along with Masters Windu and Ki-Adi-Mundi did not believe Tano was innocent of the crime. Tiin felt the evidence piled up against Ahsoka was enough for her to be convicted.[9]

Duel in Palpatine's OfficeEdit

Duel on Coruscant

He was one of four masters sent to arrest Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, revealed by Anakin Skywalker to be the powerful Sith Lord Darth Sidious, along with Kit Fisto, Agen Kolar and Mace Windu. Sidious, however, resisted his arrest, instead pulling out his red lightsaber and engaging the group of Jedi in combat. Despite the skills of the Jedi Masters, the Sith Lord quickly cut down Kolar, Tiin and Fisto, leaving only Windu, who was also later slain, to continue the fight.[2][10]

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Master Tiin had natural telepathic powers that were superior to most other Jedi, and was an ace starfighter pilot.[11]
