Genel was a Duros Jedi youngling who served the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars and was one of the survivors that escaped Order 66 with K'Kruhk and Chase Piru following the establishment of the Galactic Empire.
Genel was a Duros member of the Soaring Hawkbat Clan. The clan was stationed a the Jedi chapter house on Bogden 3. They were awaiting transport back to the Coruscant Jedi Temple, which had been delayed due to the battle there. When masters K'Kruhk and Sian Jeisel arrived with their clone troopers, Order 66 was issued. Several of the younglings were killed as Du Mahn defended them. K'Kruhk and Chase Piru Piru ultimately escaped with nine younglings to parts unknown. Two months afterwards, the young Jedi was living with the group of younglings in exile under the tutelage of K'Kruhk.
Great Jedi PurgeEdit
Genel was present when Lumbra and his men came to the youngling's camp. When they noticed that the broken ship had a piece that they needed, Lumbra proceeded to take it. As he approached the ship, fellow youngling, Seddwia, jumped at him saying that it was their ship and to leave it alone. Lumbra grabbed Seddwia by the arm and pulled her away, starting a conflict. Chase Piru jumped to her rescue, but was shot and believed dead. When Lumbra realized they were Jedi younglings, they were chained up and on their way to be turned into the Empire.
The younglings were freed by K'Kruhk who gave in to un-Jedi like behavior briefly. With the help of Chase Piru, he shot down Lumbra's men with arrows. Lumbra and his shipmate, Callow, died at the hands of K'Kruhk's lightsaber. After the conflict, K'kruhk didn't want to be a constant reminder of what he had done and left the Soaring Hawkbat Clan after dropping them off on another planet.
Genel was present with Master K'kruhk, Piru, and the rest of the Soaring Hawkbat Clan when then were shot down over Arkinnea. He was placed in a refugee camp and later had dinner prepared by Master Zao.
