- "Come on, Zatt. You're going to have to trust yourself instead of relying on technology."
- ―Zatt, focusing himself during The Gathering
Biography[edit | edit source]
A Force-sensitive Nautolan, Zatt was trained in the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. When the Clone Wars erupted between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the Order's members were forced to serve in the Grand Army of the Republic. As the war was waged around them, Zatt was deemed to be one of the top members of his clan and suitable to travel to the sacred Jedi world of Ilum to participate in the ancient ritual known as The Gathering. Escorted to Ilum by Padawan Ahsoka Tano, Zatt and several other Initiates; Gungi, Byph, Ganodi, Petro, and Katooni met with Grand Master Yoda in the Temple at the mouth of the Crystal Caves.
Entering the caves in search of a crystal for use in his personal lightsaber, Zatt was accompanied by fellow Initiate Katooni as he searched the labyrinthine caves. Coming across a massive icy cliff, Katooni was confident that her crystal lay at the top of the cliff. Leaving his friend to pursue his own crystal, the tech-savvy Zatt used a datapad enhanced with radar devices to search for his crystal. While the device detected several crystals all around him, he quickly became frustrated that it could not find his particular crystal. Angered, Zatt smashed the device on the wall, damaging its screen. After regaining his calm, Zatt realized the crystal he sought was on the other side of the wall and wired the malfunctioning device to detonate, to reveal the crystal. Able to free the crystal from the ice, Zatt claimed the crystal for himself and made it back out of the caves to await the other Initiates in the Temple. Master Yoda commended on him finding trust within himself.
After leaving Ilum, Zatt and the other younglings met Huyang, the lightsaber designer who would instruct him and the other initiates. While the younglings tried to use the force to create the lightsabers the Crucible was attacked by Hondo Ohnaka and his band of pirates. Before the Jedi ship could escape to hyperspace, Hondo boarded the Crucible. Without weapons the younglings were vulnerable, so they and Tano hid in the ventilation shaft. Zatt was ordered to go with Ganodi to secure the cockpit, and they succeeded with the help of R2-D2. Later the others got to safety with the help of Tano, who was captured. Without knowing she was not aboard Zatt jumped to hyperspace with his fellow younglings.
The younglings discovered the ship was leaking coolant soon after, and therefore the group had to land otherwise the ship would blow up. The nearest planet was Florrum, the location of Ohnaka's base, so when the got there they left the astromech droid R2-D2 and Ganodi with the ship. The rest of the younglings infiltrated the pirates through a troupe of the Dug Preigo. They waited until the right moment to steal back Tano's lightsabers and free her from the pirates and escape on a stolen speeder.
