Coleman Trebor was a male Vurk Jedi Master who served as a member of the Jedi High Council prior to 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[edit | edit source]

A Vurk male born on his species' homeworld of Sembla,[1] Coleman Trebor became a Jedi and was the only known Vurk to do so.[5] As a member of the Jedi Order he built 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 Anakin Skywalker was to accompany Amidala to her home planet of Naboo, while Obi-Wan Kenobi investigated.[3]

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 Obi-Wan Kenobi from the Confederacy of Independent Systems. He fought in the Petranaki Arena, igniting his green-bladed lightsaber whilst standing with Jedi Knight Bultar Swan. During the battle, Trebor infiltrated the stands and confronted Count Dooku on a balcony, aiming to kill him and hopefully halt a prospective war before it began. The bounty hunter Jango Fett 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.[3] After his brief time on the Council ended with his death,[6] Trebor was succeeded by Master Kit Fisto.[7]

Powers and abilities[edit | edit source]

A hulking Vurk, Trebor was revered for his meditation 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[edit | edit source]

Trebor was wearing Jedi robes and carried a green lightsaber with him.[5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

Coleman Trebor was a completely computer-generated character in the 2002 film 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" backwards). Coleman recalled that the character's name was suggested by Visual Effects Supervisor John Knoll.[8]
