- "You may not have heard that Master Dapatian intends to retire from the Council, effective next month."
"That is our loss."
"We hope it will also be our gain. Qui-Gon Jinn, we hereby offer you a seat on the Jedi Council."
- ―Mace Windu and Qui-Gon Jinn
Poli Dapatian was a male Jedi Master who sat on the Jedi High Council at some point before the Invasion of Naboo. During his time on the Council, Dapatian took on an apprentice that had been one of Qui-Gon Jinn's crèche-mates. Sometime later, Dapatian announced that he intended to retire from the Council in a month's time and his place on the Council was offered to Jinn, who requested time to meditate on the offer. He breathed with the aid of a respirator mask. He was considered highly renowned, but became very aged in appearance in his later years.
