Early life[]

Bairdon Jace[3] was a human male who was the Padawan of Jedi Master Khaat Qiyn.

Prior to the Invasion of Naboo, Jace was touring Coruscant with Qiyn when they both sensed the cold presence of Darth Maul, who was secretly tracking them from afar. Jace was unsure if what they sensed through the Force was true, and he asked his master if their senses could have been betraying them. As the two Jedi walked away together, Qiyn warned her Padawan that the shadows they had sensed held great rage that could swallow him whole in the mind, and that he should always trust in the Force.[1]

Battle of Geonosis[]

In 22 BBY, he accompanied his master to Geonosis as part of the Jedi assault team to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Padmé Amidala. He stormed the arena along with his master, and many comrades.[2]
