Eeth Koth, a Force-sensitive Iridonian Zabrak male, was a Jedi Master who served on the Jedi High Council during the last years of the Galactic Republic. Like his fellow Jedi, he fought against the Confederacy of Independent Systems as a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. After surviving the first battle on Geonosis that started the intergalactic conflict, Koth was captured by General Grievous and used as bait to lure other Jedi into a trap. However, he had narrowly escaped death upon being rescued by with the combined forces of Adi Gallia, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker at Saleucami.
Koth was eventually removed from the Jedi High Council and his seat was given to Agen Kolar, after which he left the Order. By the time of the Galactic Empire—the regime that came to dominate the galaxy in the aftermath of the Clone Wars—Koth was a priest in the Church of the Ganthic Enlightenment and had a wife, Mira, who gave birth to the former Jedi Master’s infant daughter. Darth Vader, the Sith Lord who oversaw the Great Jedi Purge that began with Order 66, defeated and killed Koth in a lightsaber duel. Vader then abducted Koth’s child, having chosen her as a potential candidate for Project Harvester.
