Charcter Bio - Etain Tur-Mukan was a female Human Jedi Knight and General who
lived during the Clone Wars. She was the Padawan of Jedi Master Kast Fulier.
They both were assigned to Qiilura some time before the Battle of Geonosis to
collect vital information about the Trade Federation and Separatist
infrastructure on the planet. She preferred to use a LJ-50 concussion rifle over
After Qiilura, Etain became a full Jedi Knight. She spent some time serving with
both Omega Squad and Delta Squad, both on Coruscant and elsewhere. She also
married Darman, RC-1136, a Clone Commando in Omega Squad, with whom she had a
son, Venku Skirata. Little is known about the childhood of Etain Tur-Mukan, but
it seems likely that she spent most of it at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant under
the training of Master Kast Fulier. She was also said to have been taken from
her parents at a young age, and remembered nothing about them.
Before the breakout of the Clone Wars, Etain and her Master were entrusted with
the intelligence task of monitoring the Trade Federation activities on the
backwater planet of Qiilura. They worked for several weeks on gathering
information on a number of Separatist facilities around the planet's capital,
Imbraani, including Dr. Ovolot Qail Uthan biological research facility and the
Separatist communication facility near Teklet. Fulier though, shaken to the core
by the way the Neimoidians and the Mandalorian mercenary Ghez Hokan exploited
and oppressed the local population, couldn't resist intervening at one point.
After defending a couple of locals against one of Hokan's thugs, the same locals
turned him in to Ghez for the price of a bottle of Urrqal. He was eventually
captured and killed by Ghez. For the next few weeks Etain managed to survive on
her own, hiding in the countryside outside Imbraani. Still in possession of the
plans, she was desperately
looking for a way to either escape the hostile world or at least transmit what
she and Fulier had gathered off-planet. Right after she had narrowly escaped a
drunk Weequay thug, she met with a Gurlanin by the name of Jinart, whom at that
time was under the guise of an old woman. Jinart helped Etain by influencing a
barq farmer named Birhan in order to get her shelter at his farm, at least for
the time being.
When Omega Squad landed on the planet, it was also Jinart who scouted out the
whereabouts of the Commandos and led Etain to meet RC-1136. When she first felt
him in the Force, she was confused to sense a child rather than a man. When she
finally met Darman, she mistook him for Hokan, and attempted to kill him. After
being disarmed, she realized that it was not, in fact, Hokan. From Darman, Etain
first learned of the Grand Army of the Republic, as well as the fact that Jedi
had been made commanders and generals in charge of leading the army. Given her
self-critical nature, feeling she had been a disappointment to the Jedi, Etain
refused to take up on that role, going so far as to order Darman to disobey her
if she was screwing up. Nevertheless, she agreed to join Omega Squad in their
mission to avert the danger rooting in Dr. Uthan's research of a nanovirus
lethal to clones and take the scientist prisoner.
With Etain's plans on the Separatist facilities, Etain and Darman tried to make
contact with the other three members of Omega Squad. During her march through
Qiilura's backlands, Etain got to know the clones as people, and they
established a friendship-like relation. Etain felt sorry for the clones, whose
only purpose in life was to fight and eventually die for the Republic, and tried
to match their expectations as much as possible.
After teaming up with the rest of Omega Squad, who had already destroyed the
Separatist communications monitoring facility at Teklet, they proceeded towards
the nanovirus research laboratories. Through various firefights with hostile
mercenaries and Separatist Battle Droids, Etain became more and more used to the
soldier's ways, learning that sometimes difficult decisions have to be made.
Although still feeling under pressure from the faithful expectations from the
clones, she began to slip into the role of a commanding officer.
Utilizing one of Hokan's deserted lieutenants the Omega Squad had taken
prisoner, Etain spread false information about their numbers by using a Jedi
mind trick on the lieutenant, in order to force the Mandalorian to concentrate
his forces at one point. However, the bluff turned against the squad: Hokan
instead divided his forces between the two possibly endangered locations,
attempting to perform a double bluff to get the Omega Squad to attack the villa
of Lik Ankkit, in which a stockpile of explosives were being stored.
With Jinart's help, Omega Squad managed to blow up the villa, infiltrate the
research facility and take Dr. Uthan prisoner. While Etain, Darman, and Atin
made their way back to the extraction point with their prisoner, Niner and Fi
were confronted by Hokan.
During the rendezvous with the landing craft from the Majestic Etain discovered
that two members of her squad were still missing. Even though Jedi Master
Arligan Zey insisted on leaving the planet immediately with the prisoner, Etain
refused to leave anyone behind. After a short argument, in which Etain even
threatened to disable the landing craft, Zey finally consented to wait for the
two remaining members of Omega, feeling that her decision rooted deeply in her
connection with the Force.
Going after the missing two members of Omega Squad, Etain arrived at the battle
between the two clones and Hokan, seeing Niner down, screaming for his Sergeant,
while Hokan stood over him, about to finish him off with a vibroblade. Before
Hokan managed to kill Niner, Etain snuck in behind the Mandalorian and beheaded
him. Despite the fact that Niner had only been screaming to draw Hokan out,
where Fi could kill, the sound of his screaming scarred Etain.
After retrieving her master's lightsaber from Hokan's body, Zey offered Etain to
let her stay with him on Qiilura and assist the Gurlanin in establishing a
working resistance against the remaining Separatist forces on the planet. Etain
knew that she had to adhere to the Jedi code and turn from the attachment she
was about to form, but still asked Darman if he would like to stay with her.
Staying with Master Zey, she said farewell to Omega Squad.
Before the events on Qiilura, Etain had not been confident in herself or her
Force abilities, as her connection with the Force was weak compared to others in
the Order. It was Darman that helped her build self-esteem and confidence. Etain
was a caring, but very insecure person. Even after getting used to her role as
commander of Omega Squad, she was often shocked or disgusted by the actions of
the troopers. She also felt disdain toward the thought of a clone's predestined
life. Spending her whole life inside the Jedi order, she did not expect many
things in the outside world and was routinely suprised by how non-Jedi acted.
Etain was a doubtful person; of her own abilities, her worth and usefulness as a
Jedi and commander. Her fear of disappointing those who relied on her made her
draw back from responsibility, which sometimes, especially under stress, made
her desperate and angry. This inability to control her feelings as compared with
the standards of the Jedi made her anxious and paradoxically uncomfortable.
However, as she grew older and more experienced, particularly with Omega Squad,
Etain started to relinquish these problems. She would compare her situation in
the Jedi order to the clone pre-determined path, and start to see conflict
between what she wanted and the Jedi order.
