- "The fact that you have Jedi younglings with you gives me hope for the future."
- ―Teron, to K'Kruhk
Teron was a male Human Commander in the Republic Navy, and later in the Imperial Navy. During the Clone Wars, he fought in the Siege of Saleucami under the command of Jedi Master K'Kruhk and was impressed with the valor of the Jedi. After the establishment of the Galactic Empire, Teron was sent to the planet Arkinnea, where refugees, displaced by the long war, were disappearing. Rumors abounded, but the truth was that the local militia was massacring the refugees in order to keep their planet free of outsiders.
Teron found the militia's actions to be barbarous and ordered them to stop immediately or face dire consequences. During the course of his investigation, Teron discovered that some refugees had survived the militia's attacks, and located one of them—his old commander, K'Kruhk. Teron volunteered not only to protect the Jedi Master and the younglings under his care, but also to use some of his income to purchase equipment and supplies for their outpost, helping to establish the Hidden Temple. Many years later, Teron did not show up as expected to deliver supplies. The Jedi feared him dead, and K'Kruhk vowed to always remember him and honor all that he had done for them.
