Star Wars; Diminished Hope
Jedi Master, Jedi Council Ossus
Ood Bnar was a Neti Jedi Master who lived for over five thousand years, from before the Great Hyperspace War in 5,000 BBY until 10 ABY. Bnar was born on the planet Ryyk, but found himself stranded on Myrkr during his youth. He eventually joined the Jedi Order, and over time became one of the most respected and revered Masters of the era. Bnar specialized in the history of the Sith, and preferred to avoid combat where possible, though he often advised more martial Jedi on how best to fight the dark side. Eventually, he had such knowledge of Jedi and Sith lore that he recorded a holocron, which was passed down through the generations for centuries.
Bnar eventually became the understudy of Head Librarian Odan-Urr at the Great Jedi Library on Ossus, and after his friend’s death at the hands of Exar Kun during the Great Sith War in 4,000 BBY, Bnar took over his role as Head Librarian. However, his reign would not last long. He was among the Jedi who discovered that they would have little time to evacuate before Ossus was destroyed by a Sith-created supernova in the nearby Cron Cluster. While the other Jedi hurried to save as much as they could, Bnar went to his bundle of ancient lightsabers, hoping they would survive the shockwave heading for the planet. However, he was interrupted by Exar Kun, who had come to Ossus to scavenge any artifacts left behind. Knowing he could not defeat the Dark Lord of the Sith, Bnar transformed into a giant and immovable tree, barring Kun from the trove of sabers.
Bnar survived the devastation of Ossus, and entered a millennia-long slumber. He was awakened in 10 ABY to find Luke Skywalker and Kam Solusar facing off against a Dark Side Elite named Sedriss QL, who had taken a native girl hostage. Bnar freed the girl and gripped Sedriss tightly with his roots. The darksider attempted to use the dark energies contained in Ossus’s skies against Bnar, but the Neti fought back, counteracting Sedriss’s attack by using the powers rooted deep in the Ossus ground. He eventually sacrificed himself to stop Sedriss and save the two Jedi and the native.
