"Keep each movement tight yet subtle. Diminish areas of vulnerability. Maximize your defenses without need to strike."
―Lakshay to Jedi trainees[1]

Lakshay was a Jedi Master who lived during the High Republic Era. In 132 BBY, Lakshay oversaw a class of Padawans training in lightsaber combat in the Jedi Temple on the planet Coruscant, asking the students Daro and Rena to stay behind and show their opening stances at the end of the class.


"That's our time. Daro, Rena, I want to see your opening stance before you leave."

Lakshay was a Force-sensitive human member of the Jedi Order during the High Republic Era.[1] In 132 BBY,[2] Lakshay held the rank of Jedi Master and oversaw a class of Padawans as they trained[1] in lightsaber combat with wooden bokken sabers[3] in a training room in the Jedi Temple on[1] the planet[4] Coruscant. As the group practiced, the master walked between them and gave instructions on movement, advising the students to diminish their areas of vulnerability and maximize their defenses with tight and subtle movements but without needing to strike.[1]

As the Padawans finished their routine,[3] a chime sounded and Lakshay announced the end of the session. Tucking away their weapons, the class bowed to the Jedi Master, who returned the gesture and then asked the students Daro and Rena to remain behind and show their opening stances while the other Padawans left the class room. Former Jedi Verosha Aniseya, who had watched Lakshay lead the class, stopped the Padawan Jecki Lon as she left the Jedi Master's class room and the pair spoke in the doorway as Lakshay worked with Daro and Rena.[1]

Personality and traits[]

Lakshay had light skin, red hair, and hazel eyes.[1]


While training the Padawans, Lakshay wore a set of white and gold Jedi temple robes with a brown belt on which hung their silver-hilted lightsaber.[1]
