- "Great fear in you there is, since the death of your master. Much honored was Casieck Akinslesh. Honored, and now missed."
- ―Yoda, to Orykan Tamarik
Casieck Akinslesh was a respected member of the Jedi Order in the waning years of the Galactic Republic. Akinslesh's death in 53 BBY was mourned by Grand Master Yoda and the Jedi High Council, as well as Orykan Tamarik, the Twi'lek Padawan Akinslesh had been training. The loss of her master left Tamarik concerned and fearful. In the wake of Akinslesh's death, Tamarik was temporarily assigned to Jedi Master Tahl.
