- "Many years ago I landed on this world and became part of the village. While looking around I found a crashed starship. Within I saw a dead pilot, and in her hand was the weapon. When I showed it to the village chief, he appointed me the village protector… after I told him I knew how to use it."
- ―Yeleb, to Kanan Jarrus
A chief ruled over a village of natives on the planet of Vyndal at some point between the Jedi Purge and the early rebellion against the Galactic Empire. One day, he met Yeleb, a marooned human male who pretended to be a Jedi. The chief believed the stranger's claim, and he appointed him the protector of his people.
