In 22 BBY, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi was captured by the Confederacy of Independent Systems after he tracked a bounty hunter to the planet Geonosis.

Stouff, like many fellow Jedi, was killed in the ensuing battle.
Biography[edit | edit source]
A Jedi, Galdos Stouff was selected to be the Padawan of Weequay Jedi Master Sora Bulq, a gifted swordsman and fighting instructor. In 22 BBY, separatist forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems captured Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi after he tracked the bounty hunter Jango Fett to the Outer Rim planet Geonosis. Jedi High Council member Mace Windu assembled a strike team of 200 Jedi to rescue Kenobi from the Separatists. Stouff and Bulq were part of the team that infiltrated the Petranaki arena on Geonosis, where Kenobi was being held.
The Jedi task force faced numerous Geonosian warriors and Confederate battle droids as the ensuing fight turned into a full-scale battle. Though Bulq and Stouff incapacitated a dozen guards on the arena's tribune, the number of adversaries overwhelmed the Jedi, and many were killed, including Stouff. In the engagement's aftermath, Bulq was listed as a casualty of the battle, but he ultimately survived. The loss of Stouff and many other of his former students on Geonosis eventually led Bulq to fall to the dark side of the Force, and he subsequently joined the Separatists.
