"Halt where you are. I am Yadira Ban, Padawan of the Jedi Order. I was sent to protect the general, and you will not pass."
―Yadira Ban[src]

Yadira Ban was a female Lethan Twi'lek Jedi Padawan who served the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic during the Cold War against the resurgent Sith Empire.

A Force-sensitive Twi'lek, Yadira Ban was trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order. A Padawan, Ban was assigned to a ship the Brentaal Star. She served as The General's bodyguard with instructions to protect him from those who wished him harm as he was a very important asset to the Republic.[1]

During transit, the Sith Empire attacked the Brentaal Star with the Black Talon and boarded the ship. When Imperial spacers confronted Ban, she was slain in combat with the Imperials who had arrived to capture or kill the General.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Yadira Ban shares a personal name with Yuthura Ban who first appeared in Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic also developed by BioWare. As Twi'lek names start with a clan name, followed by their personal name, it is unlikely that the two are related in any way.[2]
