"How did you come to the Temple, Si?"
"The same as you. A Seeker found me. Master Maota."
Dooku and Sifo-Dyas[src]

Cherff Maota was a male Jedi Master who lived long before the conflict between the First Order and the Resistance.[1] He served as a seeker in the Jedi Order and encountered the Force-sensitive infant Sifo-Dyas, and brought him to the Jedi Temple to become a Jedi Knight.[2] Maz Kanata owned a bust in Maota's image, which she kept in her castle on the planet Takodana.[1]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The bust of Cherff Maota was one of the props created for the castle of Maz Kanata in Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens (December 18, 2015).[1] In the movie's novelization, the private collection of Kanata notably includes what is described as "a bust of some unknown bearded human."[3] Maota's bust, however, clearly has non-human features.[1]
