- "When the shell fails… the essence remains…"
- ―Wolf Sazen
Wolf Sazen was a male Zabrak living around 130 ABY. He was Kol Skywalker's former apprentice and the Jedi Master of Cade Skywalker. Contemplative and serious, Wolf followed the Living Force and hoped to teach his Padawan to do the same.
He was apprenticed to Kol Skywalker, a powerful member of the Jedi Council. Eventually, he took Cade Skywalker, Kol Skywalker's son, as his apprentice.
Death and resurrection
During the Massacre at Ossus he fought Darth Nihl, who cut off his right arm and delivered a fatal blow to his abdomen with an explosive surge from Nihl's blaster gauntlet. Later, aboard an evacuating shuttle full of refugees from the temple, Wolf was resurrected by his apprentice Cade Skywalker, who used the Force to bring him back from the very brink of death. Wolf felt that it was wrong to be brought back and scolded Cade for using the Force in that manner, as Cade was skirting close to the Dark Side in doing so. Cade, caught up in the emotion from the turmoil of having to abandon his father to the Sith, paid no attention and left the transport carrying the younglings.
Against Wolf's wishes, Cade took a X-83 TwinTail starfighter and engaged in a dogfight with many Predator starfighters. Cade's fighter was destroyed in a barrage of laserfire. It appeared that Cade had died, but Wolf's reanimation at Cade's hands had led to a strengthened bond between the two, and Wolf's vision of hope for the Galaxy meant finding his former apprentice and convincing him to assume his legacy.
A quest begins
- "It is time we were Jedi again."
- ―Wolf Sazen
Wolf never believed Cade to be dead, because he had not sensed Cade's death in the Force. Seven years passed, and he could find no trace of his former apprentice. In the interim years, he took young Shado Vao as his apprentice to complete the young Twi'lek's training. At some point, Shado and Wolf parted ways. They were reunited after Wolf called forth four of the remaining Jedi to a meeting on Daluuj; Shado, plus Rasi Tuum, and a Human woman joined him. The convocation was ambushed by a Sith sneak attack, but only after Wolf revealed to the group that Cade was the galaxy's only hope. After the Sith assault on the gathering, Shado and Wolf were the only survivors. Shado agreed to accompany his former master on his quest for the lost Skywalker.
Reunion and confrontation
Knowing that if ever his sister, Astraal were in trouble, she would try to return to Vendaxa, Shado and Wolf headed for the planet and arrived just in time to rescue Astraal and Princess Sia Fel from an attacking acklay. Accompanying the two women were a group of unsavory-looking bounty hunters, among them a scruffy, blonde-haired young man named Cade.
However, before Wolf could question the man further, an explosion in the distance drew everyone's attention. Something had caused the destruction of the Jedi's transport, and that something was soon revealed to be the Sith, in the form of Darth Talon, who attacked the group alongside some of Vendaxa's local fauna, stirred up by Sith influence. The Sith Hand quickly gained dominance over the Jedi and easily disarmed the bounty hunters, and was about to deliver a fatal blow to Wolf when Cade, with an angry outburst hurled her into the surrounding forest with a burst of Force energy.
The threat from the Sith temporarily abated, the group retreated to Cade's ship, the Mynock. However, Talon had been there and sabotaged the ship, preventing them from lifting off right away.
While the crew and passengers of the Mynock set about making repairs, Wolf and Shado patrolled the perimeter, knowing that Darth Talon was not far off.
As Talon arrived with reinforcements, including Darth Nihl, he once again engaged in the fight against the Sith, but not without a fair warning—Perhaps the Force had a purpose in sending me back—to break your hold on the galaxy, he stated. Sazen and Darth Nihl started their rematch against each other. Meanwhile, Cade was saved from a Zabrak Sith Lord by Marasiah, who was injured. In a fury, he called her lightsaber to him and attacked Nihl in anger. Sazen warned him he could not defeat Nihl in anger, but Cade didn't listen. They managed to escape, and Cade revived the Emperor's daughter. When they reached Bastion, Cade sneaked out of his ship and joined Sazen and Shado. He offered them a ride wherever they wanted, but told them to not get any ideas about him rejoining the order.
They proceded to Ossus, where, in the ruins of the Jedi Praxeum, Cade asked Sazen to finish his training after being healed of his previous mental trauma by the Whiphid Jedi K'Kruhk. Sazen accepted and began to train Cade again with K'Kruhk's help.
Behind the scenes
- Wolf Sazen appears to be an homage to the popular Japanese manga character Tange Sazen. The story of a one-armed, one-eyed swordsman was created by Hayashi Fubo in the 1920s and went on to great success first as a manga character, as well as in film and television.
