Kyle Katarn, Jedi Outcast
An Expanded Universe Character from Star Wars Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast, available now
By Cory Herndon
One of the Rebellion's most successful intelligence agents, Kyle Katarn also danced on the edges of Jedi greatness for years before fully joining Luke Skywalker's New Jedi Order. In the chaotic early years of the New Republic, however, Katarn grew distrustful of the Force for many years after too many perilous brushes with the dark side. He returned to intelligence work full-time, giving up his Jedi studies (albeit temporarily) and handing over his lightsaber to Master Skywalker.
During this stretch of his career, Katarn willfully gave up many skills and techniques he had learned over years of study. He took to the spacelanes in a new ship, the Raven's Claw, which replaced the Moldy Crow.
By the time Kyle Katarn resumed his studies, he did so as a green apprentice. (The stat block below is based upon information created for the upcoming Power of the Jedi Sourcebook.)
