Stellan Gios was a human male Jedi Master who was part of the Jedi Order during the High Republic Era. At one point, Vernestra Rwoh was his Jedi Padawan before she was promoted to Jedi Knight, and he was also stationed at the Jedi outpost on the planet Caragon-Viner. Stellan had risen through the ranks of the Order along with Avar Kriss and when they worked together they were seen as immense powerhouses on missions for the Order and the Galactic Republic. Gios was formerly the Padawan of Master Rana Kant, and formed close bonds with Kriss and Elzar Mann during their time as apprentices, often serving as a voice of reason in the trio.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Stellan Gios, a Force-sensitive human male born during the High Republic Era, was recruited into the Jedi Order at a young age. He eventually became the Padawan of Jedi Master Rana Kant. During his time as a Padawan, he formed close bonds with two other apprentices, Avar Kriss and Elzar Mann. Gios rose through the ranks of the Jedi alongside Kriss, and on the occasions they worked together they were seen as powerhouses for the Order and Galactic Republic. Eventually attaining the rank of Master himself, Gios trained his own Padawan, the Mirialan Vernestra Rwoh. Rwoh, a prodigy, would attain the rank of Jedi Knight at only fifteen, making her the youngest Knight in a generation.
Afterwards, Gios was stationed at a temple outpost on the Colonies planet Hynestia. When the Great Disaster occurred and the Outer Rim's Hetzal system was threatened by large amounts of hyperspace debris, Gios received the star system's distress signal and set out in a starship to help. Kriss, coordinating the Jedi and Republic's rescue effort on Hetzal Prime, sensed his approach from afar. Gios later attended the dedication ceremony of the new Starlight Beacon space station. Later, Gios was stationed at a Jedi outpost on the planet Caragon-Viner. He would eventually be appointed to the Jedi High Council, before working with Padawan Bell Zettifar and the Force-sensitive monster hunter Ty Yorrick against the Nihil, a dangerous pirate group who had recently began moving against the Jedi and Republic.
