Coleman Trebor was a male Vurk Jedi Master who served as a member of the Jedi High Council before the Clone Wars. During the First Battle of Geonosis, Trebor attempted to engage Count Dooku but was instead shot and killed by the bounty hunter Jango Fett.

Biography[]

Jedi Master[]

A Vurk male born on his species' homeworld of Sembla,[1] Coleman Trebor became the first and only Vurk Jedi.[5] As a member of the Jedi Order, he used a green lightsaber[3] and earned a seat on the Jedi High Council during the Separatist Crisis after the death of Jedi Master Yarael Poof.[1] In 22 BBY, he was present on the Council when an attempt on Senator Amidala's life was discussed. It was decided that the Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker was to accompany Amidala to her home planet of Naboo while his master Obi-Wan Kenobi investigated.[3]

Death[]

Once the Council learned of the Separatist force on the planet Geonosis, Trebor joined the Jedi assault team led by Mace Windu and traveled to Geonosis to rescue Kenobi from the Confederacy of Independent Systems. He fought[3] in the Petranaki Arena,[6] using his green-bladed lightsaber while standing with Jedi Knight Bultar Swan. During the battle, Trebor infiltrated the stands and confronted the former Jedi Master Count Dooku on a balcony, aiming to kill him. The bounty hunter Jango Fett, who was standing next to the Dooku, fired at Trebor, who was able to deflect two shots from Fett's blaster before a third struck him in the shoulder and then a fourth in his chest, knocking him over the balcony railing and sending him falling to his death on the arena floor. Later in the battle, Fett was killed by Windu.[3]

Legacy[]

After his brief time on the Council ended with his death,[7] Trebor was succeeded by the Jedi Master Kit Fisto.[8]

Powers and abilities[]

A hulking Vurk, Trebor was revered for his mediation skills and brought many difficult disputes to a harmonious end. Trebor was also an impressively proficient lightsaber user, though he was unable to match the blaster-wielding skills of Jango Fett and died at the bounty hunter's hand.[5]

Equipment[]

Trebor wore Jedi robes and carried a green lightsaber with him. Trebor had a thick reptilian skin, and the long ridge on his head made his life difficult. He had a food and energy capsule on his waist.[5]

Behind the scenes[]

Coleman Trebor first appeared in the 2002 movie Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones directed by George Lucas and written by Lucas and Jonathan Hales.[3]

Coleman Trebor was a completely computer-generated character in the movie Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, the second installment of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.[3] For scenes in the Jedi Council Chamber, stock footage from the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace was reused, with Trebor digitally painted over Yarael Poof, who was replaced as George Lucas felt the audience would confuse him with the newly-introduced Kaminoans. Coleman Trebor's name was derived from that of Rob Coleman of Industrial Light & Magic ("Trebor" is "Robert" backward). Coleman recalled that the character's name was suggested by Visual Effects Supervisor John Knoll.[9]
