Shang-Troy Thanabo was an ancient Jedi Knight whose history was long lost to the tides of time. However, Shang-Troy's story did survive as a myth and a fable, passed down for generations among the Jedi Knights.


Shang-Troy was a Jedi Master who dedicated a part of his life to searching the galaxy for Force-sensitive beings. A humanoid Jedi with blue skin, matching dreadlocks, and black, glass eyes, he felt one of the most powerful surges in the Force while traveling near the planet Boranall.

Having never felt such a strong presence in the Force, he journeyed to the planet to investigate. On the surface, Shang-Troy found a young woman, pregnant and ready to give birth to twins. Assisting her in the birth, he was there to welcome the two young boys, one of which received a scar on his arm during a slight complication in the delivery. With the planet having little to offer it citizens, the boys' mother agreed to let Shang-Troy take them offplanet and train them as Jedi Knights so that they might have a brighter future.

Shang-Troy took it upon himself to train the boys on a remote planet, and as the boys grew into young men strong in the Force, they came to love Shang-Troy as a father. Together they traveled the Galaxy, protecting the innocent and upholding justice while staying true to the Jedi way. During their travels, however, the younger brother met and fell in love with a young lady who returned his love just as much. However, the older brother loved the woman just as much, and it did not take long for his love to turn to jealousy and anger. Shang-Troy did his best to comfort the young man, but was unfortunately unable to extinguish the anger and jealousy within him. One night, the older brother used his identical appearance to fool the woman into sharing a kiss with him, but was caught by his brother.

This time, the jealousy was in the younger brother and the woman's true love. Giving in to their anger, malicious words soon turned to physical violence. Sensing the disturbance in the Force, Shang-Troy rushed to scene of the fight. Unable to calm the two young men, Shang was caught in the middle of a fight fueled by emotion. Unable to stop themselves, a misplaced lightsaber strike found its way into Shang-Troy, their master, the man who cared for them since their birth, the man who—to them—was a father.

That night, Shang-Troy Thanabo became one with the Force at the hands of his two brightest students, and the men he loved as sons. Finding their master dead, the two brothers' emotions amplified to an even greater degree, and the two flew into a rage, battling each other. Even screaming and pleading by the woman they loved could not stop the fighting. In the end, the two brothers were consumed by their emotions and the Force, destroying them both, the woman they loved, and even the planet on which they waged war. Passed down in tale and in legend, Shang-Troy Thanabo's story was used as a lesson to teach young Jedi Knights the dangers of letting emotions cloud their judgment and the consequences of letting it do so.
