Tott Doneeta, né Tottdon'eeta, was a male Twi'lek from the planet Ryloth. Subjected to slavery in his youth, he was found by Jedi Master Arca Jeth and trained as a Knight of the Galactic Republic. A devout follower of the Force, Doneeta studied alongside fellow apprentices Ulic and Cay Qel-Droma at Master Jeth's praxeum on Jeth's homeworld of Arkania. As he progressed in the ways of the Jedi, Doneeta developed a unique, innate ability to understand and communicate with beasts.
In 4000 BBY, Doneeta and the Qel-Droma brothers were sent by Jeth to mediate negotiations between the warring peoples on the world of Onderon—the Beast Riders of Onderon's wilderness, and the dark side–worshiping citizens of Onderon's only city, Iziz. The mission went awry, and Doneeta found himself siding with the Beast Riders against the Naddists, followers of the ancient Dark Lord of the Sith Freedon Nadd that were led by Queen Amanoa of Iziz. The battle ended with the arrival of Master Jeth, who defeated Amanoa and banished Nadd's influence from Iziz. Doneeta and his companions remained on the planet to oversee Amanoa's funeral, and he was present when the forces of Amanoa's husband, King Ommin, arrived to steal both her remains and those of Nadd, Ommin's Sith forefather. After the ensuing battle, Doneeta stayed behind while Jeth attempted to retrieve the sarcophagi, but when Jeth was captured by King Ommin, Doneeta and his companions called for assistance from the Galactic Senate on Coruscant. The Republic responded by sending the full force of its navy and a team consisting of five additional Jedi. Doneeta and his team were successful in defeating the Naddists, freeing Jeth, and permanently driving Nadd's spirit from Onderon.
When a new Sith cult called the Krath was formed in the wake of the unrest in the Onderon system, Doneeta responded to the call for action by attending the Jedi Conclave on the planet Deneba. The Krath ambushed the convocation, and Master Jeth was killed in the attack, causing Doneeta's fellow Jedi, Ulic Qel-Droma, to subsequently infiltrate their ranks in an attempt to destroy the Krath from within. Many of Qel-Droma's colleagues were against his plan, and Doneeta was among those who were sent to collect him from the Krath, only to find that Qel-Droma had embraced the dark side and had become a Sith Lord. Qel-Droma and the Krath began a holy crusade and joined forces with Dark Lord of the Sith Exar Kun to wage the Great Sith War upon the Republic. When the Sith Brotherhood invaded Coruscant, Doneeta was among the Jedi that helped capture Qel-Droma so that he could be tried for his various war crimes. However, Qel-Droma was freed by Exar Kun, and together they resumed their war of galactic conquest. Doneeta was later present on the library world of Ossus when the Sith Brotherhood caused a supernova that threatened to devastate the planet. He assisted in the evacuation proceedings by gathering many priceless Jedi artifacts before the conflagration hit. The Sith were ultimately overthrown by the Jedi when Qel-Droma—who had renounced his allegiance to the Dark Lord—led Doneeta and his companions to Kun's stronghold on Yavin 4. There, the Twi'lek participated in the collective Jedi effort to defeat Exar Kun, which resulted in Yavin 4's surface destruction.
Ten years later
, Doneeta returned to Ryloth, where he unsuccessfully attempted to stall a planetary weather phenomenon known as a heat storm
in defense of his clansmen
. He later left his homeworld for the Exis space station
to attend another Jedi gathering
called by then–Head of the Order, Nomi Sunrider
. Arriving late, Doneeta was just in time to save Sunrider's daughter
from a stellar calamity. At the conclave's end, Doneeta traveled with the Cathar
in various attempts to help her release her anger, but to no avail. The quest led them to her homeworld
, where he finally recognized that Sylvar's hate was leading her into the dark side. In the deserts of Cathar, Tott Doneeta left his old friend to contemplate whether or not she would give in to it. (Read more…)
