Star Wars; Diminished Hope
Jedi Knigh, teacher of Mallik Khiff
Shaela Nuur was a female Human who served as a Jedi Knight during the Great Sith War and its aftermath. Trained on the Jedi Order’s library world of Ossus, Nuur became a strong and promising Knight under the tutelage of her Neti Jedi Master, Ood Bnar. Bnar eventually rewarded her with the Solari crystal, a powerful Force artifact that could be used in lightsabers, provided that the user was attuned to the light side of the Force. Nuur later lost both Bnar and Ossus during the Great Sith War when the planet was devastated by the Cron Supernova.
In the aftermath of the war, Nuur was selected to be a member of a team of Jedi assigned to tracking down and killing terentateks. The terentateks were ancient monsters reawakened by the instigator of the Great Sith War that were highly deadly to Jedi, as they fed on the blood of Force-sensitives. In what became known as the Great Hunt, Nuur cleansed numerous planets of the creatures alongside fellow Knights Duron Qel-Droma and Guun Han Saresh. Over the course of their hunts together, Nuur and Qel-Droma nurtured a growing romance that greatly upset a jealous Saresh. Following their cleansing of Tatooine, the Great Hunt was officially declared over; however, the Jedi Council of the Enclave on Dantooine dispatched the three to Korriban on an unofficial mission to rid the planet of any surviving terentateks.
While on Korriban, Nuur, Qel-Droma, and Saresh argued over the questionable acts that they had committed to find the beasts. The disagreement led to Saresh’s departure, leaving only Nuur and Qel-Droma to hunt down the terentateks. As the two engaged one of the animals within a cave in the Valley of the Dark Lords, Qel-Droma was killed, leading a vengeful Nuur to hunt down the beast by herself. Upon finding it within the tomb of the Sith Lord Naga Sadow, Nuur was killed after the Solari crystal within her lightsaber stopped working, as she had fallen away from the light side of the Force. Her remains went untouched for decades until they were found forty years later by the Jedi Knight Revan during the Jedi Civil War.
