Can someone give a rundown of what Zekk did during the Black Sun crisis? I don't have access to those books. StarNeptune 10:00, 10 Jun 2005 (UTC)

Un-joining Edit

Jaina and Zekk were un-joined

Source, please? I don't remember this in TSW... Thanos6 18:56, 31 Dec 2005 (UTC)

The source is Betrayal --Jacen Solo 18:45, 1 October 2006 (UTC)

Affliliations Edit

I find stating that he was a member of the Shadow Academy and a Dark Jedi a bit redundant, as the Shadow Academy trained Dark Jedi. I find it to be akin to listing Jedi Praxeum and New Jedi Order as an affiliation. I personally feel it would be less redundant to remove Dark Jedi as an affiliation if Shadow Academy is already stated.

As for Joiner being an affiliation, I disagree. Joiners are affiliated with The Colony (IIRC), so listing him as a Joiner is also redundant if it is stated he is affiliated with The Colony. StarNeptune 16:03, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

Age Edit

Legacy of the Force: Betrayal lists Jaina as being older than Zekk, yet in the YJK, he's definitely older than the twins. I think a retcon might be soon needed. Doran 19:39, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

  • I think you mean Betrayal has him listed as younger than Jaina. Anyway, we don't know yet if this is a continuity flub or a retcon, so maybe a note in the BTS section is needed. StarNeptuneTalk to me! 19:44, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

The Bi-sexual part Edit

He may not be because that is during a time when he is linked mentally with Jaina And Jaina may have those feelings about Jag So he is thinking with Jaina

  • I agree and plus before joining Zekk had feelings for Jaina. This joining thing is really freaky. JainaSolo32
    • As the saying goes, there's no fire without a spark. Thanos6 19:42, 10 July 2006 (UTC)
      • Can someone give me a excerpt that gives an example of the sex thing please.Purpilia 03:10, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
        • I don't have the book with me right now, but it's true that he does have a level of affection for Jag, but it does not constitute as bisexuality since he and Jaina were more like one person than two at the moments. --Sauron18 09:40, 11 July 2006 (UTC)
          • I vote we leave it as it is; a "possibility." Thanos6 00:10, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
            • I dunno, we'd otherwise have to consider everyone who ever joined to have been bisexual (or tri or who knows how many genders were joined)--Sauron18 03:25, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
              • To the best of my knowledge, I never saw any of the other Joiners develop those kind of feelings; didn't Jaina and Zekk join closer to each other than to anyone else? Sort of like how Han and Luke had a very mild joining... Thanos6 04:03, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
                  • Han and Luke were resistant to the joining process and Zekk and Jaina stayed in the nest longer than any of the other Joiners. As a result they became one person. I also think that it was Jaina who fantasized having sex with Jagged Fel and Zekk just happened to feel the same thing. Before the whole joining thing Jaina and Zekk had feelings for each other since the Young Jedi Knights series but never did admit it. I don't think it is a possibility. JainaSolo32 18:00, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
                    • This kind of thing makes me glad we never got to see things from Unuthul's point of view :P --Sauron18 20:30, 12 July 2006 (UTC)
                      • Can I still get an excerpt so I know what was thought.Purpilia 03:18, 13 July 2006 (UTC)
                        • So Zekk is bisexual???OxfordScholar09 15:56, 25 July 2006 (UTC)
                          • No. Zekk is not bisexual, the feelings that he had for Jag were a result of joining with Jaina. He has feelings for Jaina but Jaina thinks of him as a brother. Too bad, I would like for them to get together. Jaina Solo 00:27, 28 July 2006 (UTC)

  • I don't think that the "possibly" addendum should even be included. This is an encyclopedia, not a speculation website. At most, it belongs here, in the talk page. Unless Lucas or Pena or Chee "canofies" this, and given Lucas' propensity to keep Star Wars family friendly that is very unlikely, I don't think it should be in the article. And user jaina, no, she shouldn't marry Zekk. Jag's the man! Besides, we need to do away with the millions of Jedi running around. It's about time for a non-sensitive Skywalker and Jag would be a perfect candidate to help create a main character that relies on skill instead of the force. This is after all, Star Wars, not Jedi Wars, like Lucas made the prequels.--PhilCarr 14:33, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
    • Jaina+Jag = Emperor Fel in legacy time, populer thought line. Jaina's kids would be force sensitive despite the father, Leia/Han for instance. And theres been bi chracters before, Juhani for instance, but no Zekk is not gay, it was part of the Kilik effect and its getting riduculus even for people to assume that he is due to such a small line. Jedi Dude 14:36, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
      • Thanks "Dude". I forgot to mention that he feels Jaina's feelings for Jag, he doesn't develop his own feelings, as the article states. As for Juhani, when did this happen? I've played through KotOR as light female, and never got that impression.--PhilCarr 14:47, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
        • Don't get me wrong I like Jag alot but after he tried to shoot her down I lost much respect for him. Besides Zekk and Jaina seem to have reached couple status in Betrayal so there's hope for them yet. Lieutenant Colonel Solo (Rogue Squardon Personnel) Rogue Squadron 01:03, 24 August 2006 (UTC)
  • I'm removing the whole thing because this is what we'd call "original research" on wikipedia. I think it's best if it is published somewhere else and we make a brief mention of it (i.e. "Some fans have stated theories that Zekk is bisexual... see reference") and link there. The "possibly" in there doesn't make it any more valid and phrases like "The character's bisexuality is questioned" is POV. It is questioned by whom? I opine that the whole thing needs to be backed up with text or another source and written NPOV if it is to be a part of the article.

Wildyoda 04:33, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

    • We ain't Wikipedia, we're better in basically every way. I'm oh-so-tempted to revert this, but that would likely spark off another damn edit war. I'm going to let an admin decide. Thanos6 12:08, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
      • We may not be wikipedia, but if we don't have some level of consistency we won't be able to distinguish between verifiable information and fanon before long. Besides, when you click the edit button, look at the directions immediately below the text box: "Submitted content must be from a canon source and verifiable" If you put an intelligent source up next to it, nobody has any reason to delete it. Wildyoda 22:59, 3 November 2006 (UTC)
  • I just read Joiner King twice, and there's only one line of quotes that could even have any possible reference:

"Our boyfriend means business," Zekk observed. "Don't know that it's him. And it's old boyfriend." (Jaina) "Right. We 're so over him." (Zekk) "We?" (Jaina) Jaina and Zekk dropped the line of thought there. It was just getting too creepy, with Zekk sharing everything that Jaina still felt for Jag, and Jaina sharing everything that Zekk still felt for her, and it didn't help matters that, at the moment, Jag was doing his best to kill them both.</quote>

  • The text canonically states that it's Jaina's feelings that Zekk is sharing. So everyone talking about him being bisexual needs to put a sock in it or come up with some real canonical proof. Atarumaster88 20:27, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

QuotesEdit

It is I, Vladius Magnum, Lord of Quotes! That's right, this article needs a new quote. Leia making fun of her daughter's semi-boyfriend doesn't relate to his character. Maybe the one further down the page, perhaps. "I love a showdown" is pretty good. Tell me what will happen in my pathetic existence here on this page, or what you think, whichever comes first. --Vladius Magnum(Clan Magnum)

  • Au contraire. The general consensus is that that is an excellent quote. Please don't change it. --user:Vongchild
    • Nevermind. I see the quotes have already been restructured. --user:Vongchild

lightsaber color ? Edit

After he joined the New Jedi Order, what color lightsaber did he build ?

I believe he kept the same one, like the rest of the YJK. Verdant Fire 18:29, 18 April 2007 (UTC)Verdant Fire

I'm fairly certain that in Betrayal it says his lightsaber is blue. McJediProbie 16:15, February 12, 2012 (UTC)

Height ? Edit

Is he really 2 meters. In comparison to Jaina and Jacen, he is close to there height, I'm really confused.

  • Um, no he's not. He's a lot taller than Jaina, and significantly taller than Jacen. -LtNOWIS 04:17, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
  • He's taller than Han Solo, who is 1.8 meters. Which a couple people have tried to change it to. -Fnlayson 04:44, 18 April 2007 (UTC)
  • Now it's been changed to 1.88 meters. I don't have my books with me, so I didn't change it back, but I thought he was 2 meters tall. Can anyone provide canon support for either height? --Verdant Fire 18:26, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
  • I belive it was stated somewhere in Betrayal, possibly in the chapter where Han asks who invited Zekk.RushinSundaws 18:35, 1 May 2007 (UTC)
  • From The Joiner King, page 74: "Finally, Zekk said, 'I'm just happy it's thakitillo instead of some skalrat or something.' Seated on a bench next to Jaina, he wore his black hair as long and ragged as he had in his youth, but that was all that remained the same. A late growth spurt had turned him into something of a human giant, standing two meters tall with shoulders as broad as Lowbacca's." -Verdant Fire 03:02, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
    • Much thanks. I thought I had read that somewhere. I made Joiner King a reference. -Fnlayson 03:31, 3 May 2007 (UTC)
  • i don't care how tall he is does ANYONE know his last name<**>
  • I don't think he has a last name, quite a few people don't in the EU. Jaina Leia Mara 21:39, 4 January 2008 (UTC)


death?Edit

ok his ship is distroyed and his body was never found,so is he dead or what?(Verlok 19:48, 13 May 2008 (UTC))

-I believe it's a common saying among Star Wars fans... "He's not dead until you see a body?" I wouldn't draw any conclusions. He's Missing, Presumed Dead, but it isn't confirmed until we've got a corpse. Vongchild 02:21, 14 May 2008 (UTC)

-Denning's already "killed" at least two characters only to have them return in a subsequent book of his. 90% sure he's not dead. 128.243.253.217 12:20, 25 May 2008 (UTC)

-He's now been confirmed to be the main character of Blood Oath, so thats a no on his death... not particularly surprising. 124.169.0.127 09:15, 21 September 2008 (UTC)

-since blood oath was cancled does that mean that he's dead as of 45 ABY?

Sue Rostini has stated on the forums on StarWars.com that Zekk is not dead as of the Fate of the Jedi series. --Red haired jedi 21:50, October 9, 2009 (UTC)

Jedi Master Edit

In the infobox it gives the name of his Dark Jedi master, but not his Jedi one. I'm almost positive it's Luke but I'm not sure. Am I right? Mecenarylord 01:17, 24 February 2009 (UTC)

Main ImageEdit

Since Blood Oath is canceled, is the cover image still valid as a resource? Dangerdan97 20:42, 14 August 2009 (UTC)

So What Now? Edit

So how do we find out what happend to Zekk now that Blood Oath has been canceled

So Edit

Can we expect to see Zekk in the Fate of the Jedi or what? I dont think Jaina would be fine with him being gone and getting ready to marry Jag without knowing what happened to her best fiend


He appears again in Backlash by Aaron Allston. Personally, I think Jaina should marry Zekk, not JagKellymarieskywalker 18:20, April 3, 2010 (UTC)

Backlash Edit

Backlash doesn't take place in 43 ABY? If he appears again in Backlash, then it wasn't six months later Invincible. Unsigned comment by 189.60.106.110 (talk • contribs).

  • The six month period occurred after Invincible, in 41.5 ABY, but approximately two years before Backlash, in 43.5 ABY. So, by the time of Backlash, Zekk had been back for well over a year. Grand Moff Tranner Imperial Department of Military Research (Comlink) 00:19, April 7, 2010 (UTC)

Any better page quotes? Edit

Ahem, the defining characteristic of Zekk is a relationship that he hasn't been in for years, meanwhile, he's engaged to another woman? (- -) 11:59, July 22, 2011 (UTC)
