Ulic Qel-Droma was a male Jedi Knight whose life was recounted in the quasi-historical Qel-Droma Epics. According to the myths, after Qel-Droma's Master was killed by the Krath, Qel-Droma volunteered to infiltrate and destroy the Krath. However, he was corrupted, turning to the dark side of the Force on Empress Teta, and took over the Krath alongside fellow fallen Jedi Exar Kun. Qel-Droma eventually turned away from the dark side and was redeemed by being cut off from the Force. During his time as a Jedi, he wielded a lightsaber with a powerful yellow-green blade.
Behind the scenes
- "There's somewhat of a connection to Luke. As a matter of fact, Ulic is sort of an anagram of Luke. This guy ends up going totally over to the dark side. So the idea is, we take the young, idealistic hero, don't make him look like Skywalker, make him a different person, but the definite type—the impulsive, young warrior who's very sure of himself."

Ulic Qel-Droma was first mentioned in the new Star Wars canon in the Nexus of Power, a sourcebook for Fantasy Flight Games' Star Wars: Force and Destiny roleplaying game published in March 17, 2016. The character Ulic Qel-Droma originally appeared in the Star Wars Legends continuity in the first issue of the comic series Tales of the Jedi: Knights of the Old Republic, written by Tom Veitch, penciled by Chris Gossett, and published by Dark Horse Comics on October 1, 1993. Although that comic issue was Qel-Droma's first actual appearance, he was first mentioned in Veitch's endnotes for the Star Wars: Dark Empire series released earlier.
