Though two years younger than Obi-Wan, Siri was just as powerful in her skills with [[lightsaber]] and [[the Force]]. As an adolescent, she had a very tomboyish attitude, even while considered attractive by her male peers. As with Obi-Wan, Siri had a rivalry with fellow [[Jedi]] trainee [[Bruck Chun]].<ref name="The Captive Temple">''Jedi Apprentice: The Captive Temple''</ref>

The first time Siri spoke to Obi-Wan, she had already learned of his temporary leave from the Jedi Order to help with the crusade of the adolescents on [[Melida/Daan]], and was angry with him, calling him an embarrassment to all potential [[Padawan]]s (this was before she was chosen as a Padawan herself). Later on, she helped him trace Bruck Chun's connection in [[Xanatos]]'s infiltration of the [[Jedi Temple]].<ref name="The Captive Temple" />

A few months following the Xanatos incident, Adi Gallia chose Siri to be her Padawan learner. The two accompanied Obi-Wan and his master [[Qui-Gon Jinn]] on several missions to [[planet]]s such as [[Kegan]]. Before the Kegan mission, Siri was a headstrong and impatient Padawan, but learning from Obi-Wan's example, she became more patient and determined.<ref name="The Fight For Truth">''Jedi Apprentice: The Fight For Truth''</ref> With Adi Gallia, Siri also helped Obi-Wan rescue Qui-Gon from [[Jenna Zan Arbor]].

It wasn't until a few years into their friendship that Siri and Obi-Wan realized their true feelings for each other. Along with their masters, the two were again sent on a mission together: this time to save a boy, [[Talesan Fry]], from bounty hunters on the planet [[Cirrus]]. After crashing on the planet [[Quadrant Seven]], the masters sent the Padawans to hide in the nearby caves in order to protect Talesan. During the time they spent in the caves, Siri and Obi-Wan's bickering briefly allowed them to express their feelings for each other, but they decided to put their focus on the mission.

After putting Talesan into safe hands (following the death of his parents at the hands of the bounty hunter [[Magus (bounty hunter)|Magus]]), the two agreed to abandon their love, after a talk with Qui-Gon and [[Yoda]] about the consequences of Qui-Gon's love for the late [[Tahl]]. Siri and Obi-Wan vowed never to speak of their love again. However, this decision led to the gradual drifting of their friendship.<ref name="Secrets of the Jedi">''Secrets of the Jedi''</ref>

Shortly after the [[Invasion of Naboo]], Siri and Adi Gallia had a major disagreement, which led to Gallia dismissing her informally as Padawan, and Siri leaving the Jedi Order. She joined the slave trader [[Krayn]] and renamed herself Zora. Siri remained a part of his operations as his right-hand person until she briefly encountered Obi-Wan and his new apprentice, [[Anakin Skywalker]]. Obi-Wan, like most other Jedi, had believed that Siri was a traitor. But after the encounter with Zora and lashing out at her, he later searched his feelings and realized the truth that Siri would never willingly betray the Jedi. This was confirmed by the [[Jedi High Council]], revealing that Siri's "disagreement" with Adi Gallia and her "dismissal" from the Jedi Order were all part of an intricate plan set up by the Council to overthrow Krayn's slave operations. Soon after this revelation, Anakin, who was captured earlier and made a slave, inadvertently disclosed the true identity of "Zora", and Krayn imprisoned her with Skywalker. Working together, the two Jedi convinced the slaves to organize a revolt. With Obi-Wan's help from the outside, they succeeded in destroying Krayn's operations, ending with Anakin killing the slaver. Her undercover mission finished, Siri was welcomed back to the Jedi Order.<ref name="Jedi Quest: The Path to Truth">''Jedi Quest: Path to Truth''</ref>

"No one owns me, Krayn."
―Siri Tachi[src]

Siri Tachi was a Human female Jedi Master[4], apprentice of Adi Gallia and master to Ferus Olin. She was a talented pilot who served in the Clone Wars, and helped to overthrow the operations of the notorious slave trader, Krayn. She was one of Obi-Wan Kenobi's closest friends, and at one point they were romantically involved.

After Ferus resigned from the Jedi Order, Siri never took on another Padawan. She went on many other missions, particularly against the Trade Federation. In 20 BBY, she met her early death on Azure while on a mission with Obi-Wan.

Biography

Padawan

File:Siritachi.jpg

Though two years younger than Obi-Wan, Siri was just as powerful in her skills with lightsaber and the Force. As an adolescent, she had a very tomboyish attitude, even while considered attractive by her male peers. As with Obi-Wan, Siri had a rivalry with fellow Jedi trainee Bruck Chun.[5]

The first time Siri spoke to Obi-Wan, she had already learned of his temporary leave from the Jedi Order to help with the crusade of the adolescents on Melida/Daan, and was angry with him, calling him an embarrassment to all potential Padawans (this was before she was chosen as a Padawan herself). Later on, she helped him trace Bruck Chun's connection in Xanatos's infiltration of the Jedi Temple.[5]

A few months following the Xanatos incident, Adi Gallia chose Siri to be her Padawan learner. The two accompanied Obi-Wan and his master Qui-Gon Jinn on several missions to planets such as Kegan. Before the Kegan mission, Siri was a headstrong and impatient Padawan, but learning from Obi-Wan's example, she became more patient and determined.[6] With Adi Gallia, Siri also helped Obi-Wan rescue Qui-Gon from Jenna Zan Arbor. During this mission, Obi-Wan saved her from the bounty hunter Ona Nobis.[7]

Siri and her Master, Adi Gallia.

It wasn't until a few years into their friendship that Siri and Obi-Wan realized their true feelings for each other. Along with their masters, the two were again sent on a mission together: this time to save a boy, Talesan Fry, from bounty hunters on the planet Cirrus. After crashing on the planet Quadrant Seven, the masters sent the Padawans to hide in the nearby caves in order to protect Talesan. During the time they spent in the caves, Siri and Obi-Wan's bickering briefly allowed them to express their feelings for each other, but they decided to put their focus on the mission. At one point in the mission, the Padawans and Taly were on board a ship rigged to blow up if it exited hyperspace. It was during this time of potential death that Siri and Obi-Wan truly recognized their feelings and after finding a way to land the ship safely, they confirmed that they were in love. They agreed to discuss their situation more in depth after the mission was over. After putting Talesan into safe hands (following the death of his parents at the hands of the bounty hunter Magus), the two agreed to abandon their love, after a talk with Qui-Gon and Yoda about the consequences of Qui-Gon's love for the late Tahl. Siri and Obi-Wan vowed never to speak of their love again. However, this decision led to the gradual drifting of their friendship.[2]

File:SoraTachi-jediquest2.jpg

Shortly after the Invasion of Naboo, Siri and Adi Gallia had a major disagreement, which led to Gallia dismissing her informally as Padawan, and Siri leaving the Jedi Order. She joined the slave trader Krayn and renamed herself Zora. Siri remained a part of his operations as his right-hand person until she briefly encountered Obi-Wan and his new apprentice, Anakin Skywalker. Obi-Wan, like most other Jedi, had believed that Siri was a traitor. But after the encounter with Zora and lashing out at her, he later searched his feelings and realized the truth that Siri would never willingly betray the Jedi. This was confirmed by the Jedi High Council, revealing that Siri's "disagreement" with Adi Gallia and her "dismissal" from the Jedi Order were all part of an intricate plan set up by the Council to overthrow Krayn's slave operations. Soon after this revelation, Anakin, who was captured earlier and made a slave, inadvertently disclosed the true identity of "Zora", and Krayn imprisoned her with Skywalker. Working together, the two Jedi convinced the slaves to organize a revolt. With Obi-Wan's help from the outside, they succeeded in destroying Krayn's operations, ending with Anakin killing the slaver. Her undercover mission finished, Siri was welcomed back to the Jedi Order.[8]

Jedi Knight

Upon her return, Siri became a Jedi Knight, and she took Ferus Olin as her Padawan learner. They went on a number of missions together, along with Kenobi and Skywalker, to places such as Radnor[9] and Euceron[10]. One mission was when Siri and Obi-Wan's apprentices infiltrated and posed as students at the Leadership School on Andara in order to discover the background behind the kidnapped son of a Senator. Siri and Obi-Wan's part of the mission involved them posing as the king and queen of Cortella considering the enrollment of their "children" at the school.[11]

Other missions that Siri and Ferus took included their rescue of Obi-Wan and Anakin from Jenna Zan Arbor on Vanqor,[12] their investigation of Zan Arbor, Roy Teda, and Granta Omega on Romin,[13] and their investigation of Zan Arbor's Blackwater Systems laboratory on Falleen, before a crucial mission on Coruscant.[14]

Following Omega, Zan Arbor, and Teda to the capital world, Siri, Ferus, Obi-Wan, and Anakin discovered their plans to assassinate hundreds of Senators and dignitaries, including Supreme Chancellor Palpatine himself, using assassin droids assigned to specific targets. Siri, Obi-Wan, and Anakin went off to find the trio of criminals while Ferus valiantly protected the Chancellor and other Senators from the droids (though there were about two dozen casualties).[14] Following the death of Teda and another escape by Omega and Zan Arbor, the two master and apprentice pairs headed for Korriban, where the two criminals were reported to have been seen.[15]

Along with Soara Antana, Ry-Gaul, and their respective apprentices, Darra Thel-Tanis and Tru Veld, the investigation of the Jedi in Korriban's capital of Dreshdae led them to Omega and Zan Arbor in the Valley of the Dark Lords. It was during this fateful mission that Darra Thel-Tanis was killed by Omega. After completing the mission (which resulted in Omega's death and Zan Arbor's escape) and returning to the temple, Ferus expressed his guilt over Darra's death and announced that he was resigning from the Jedi Order.[15]

Following Ferus' resignation, Siri never took another Padawan. She worked on solo missions and befriended the pilot Nym and his squadron, the Lok Revenants. Siri helped them defeat the Trade Federation numerous times, but eventually she parted ways with them. However, Siri fought alongside them again, with Adi Gallia and a number of other Jedi pilots, using the new Delta-7 Aethersprite starfighters. She was introduced to the Galactic Republic's new Clone Army and guarded the Republic transports with Gallia in space above Geonosis, where Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Padmé Amidala were being held by Count Dooku's Confederacy of Independent Systems. Prior to the battle, Tachi aided her former master Adi Gallia in thwarting Cavik Toth's fleet of Hex Deployers. This was the start of the Clone Wars.[16]

Clone Wars

SiriTachi-SOTJ

Siri during her padawan years.

Following the Battle of Geonosis, Siri went to Kamino to investigate the sighting of Slave I, despite its owner Jango Fett having been killed by Mace Windu in the battle. While on Kamino, Siri almost discovered Fett's son, Boba, but having been forewarned that a Jedi was arriving, he managed to elude her.[17]

In 20 BBY, over two years into the Clone Wars, Siri reunited with Obi-Wan and Anakin, as well as Padmé Amidala, to go to the planet Genian. The Separatists were after an important codebreaking mechanism invented by Talesan Fry, whom Siri and Obi-Wan had met decades earlier. Talesan was now the founder of a very wealthy business on Genian, a world that remained neutral during the war. Reuniting with Talesan brought back old memories to Obi-Wan and Siri of the feelings that they once had for each other. After convincing Talesan to give the device to the Republic, they were attacked by someone else from the past, the bounty hunter Magus, who had killed Talesan's parents.[2]

Talesan accompanied the Jedi and Senator Amidala to Azure, where the Republic was fighting off more Separatists. While Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Talesan fought off the attack led by Magus (who was working for the Corporate Alliance), Siri and Padmé took a starfighter of their own to go after Magus himself. Upon reaching Magus, Siri made a desperate leap and landed on his starfighter, leaving Padmé to fly the ship herself. Siri was able to break into Magus’ ship and fight him off, which resulted in the ship's crash landing.[2]

When the Jedi found them, Talesan already had Magus held at gunpoint, while Siri was fatally injured, having been shot by Magus. Obi-Wan tried to save her, but she stopped him knowing she was dying, and the two expressed their love for each other yet again. Siri handed him the blue warming crystal she had from their first mission with Talesan, telling Obi-Wan that she would always be with him, and then passed on. As Obi-Wan came close to the dark side, he held his lightsaber blade to Magus' throat; however, he regained control before it was too late, sparing the merciless bounty hunter. Later Anakin wondered about Obi-Wan's feelings for Siri, but incorrectly came to the conclusion that his master did not love Siri because he did not kill her murderer. Obi-Wan had learned to love with an open heart, and could live with losing Siri. The memory of a great Jedi Knight and dear friend lived on with Obi-Wan.[2]
