Description: Porter Engle, known as the Blade of Bardotta, was a male Ikkrukkian Jedi Master and cook who lived during the High Republic Era. Sporting an enormous beard, Engle was a legend in the Jedi Order and formed a bond of siblinghood with fellow Jedi Barash Silvain, whose memories of infancy drove her desire for family. The two resolved disputes in the Galactic Frontier, with Engle specializing in combat and Silvain in sensing the Force and perceiving others' intentions. In 382 BBY, they arrived on the isolated world of Gansevor, confident that they could quickly answer a plea regarding the besiegement of the city Firevale.

Engle and Silvain negotiated with the Bethune army to allow the passage of some humanitarian supplies into Firevale in return for the Jedi to investigate Bethune's claim that their heir, Princess Sicatra, had been kidnapped by Firevale. The Bethunians then also requested the assistance of mercenaries led by General Viess, and they began bombarding the city to expedite the siege's end. Having been told by Firevale's Prince Colden that Sicatra had fled Bethune in order to marry him, the Jedi pair wanted more time to investigate the ordeal by speaking with Sicatra directly, and Silvain sent Engle down to the Bethune encampment, where he successfully pleaded for a ceasefire.

However, Silvain was quick to believe in Sicatra's claim that she was pregnant with Colden's child, who would thus be doomed as a Firevale royal staying among Bethunians. Silvain thus told Engle to ask the besiegers to leave. Fully trusting his sister's judgement, as always, Engle attempted to persuade the Bethunians and Viess to avoid further bloodshed and withdraw. Viess instead fired on the Jedi and the bombardments resumed. With his mastery of combat, Engle held his own against his opponents and started destroying their heavy cannons, prompting Viess to demand that they target the heart of the city to expedite the siege. When the Bethunian leadership refused, the general killed them, reasoning that Gansevor was disconnected from the galactic comms network and that her mercenaries were free to plunder as they pleased.

While Sicatra revealed that she and her husband had planned the siege in order to usurp the Firevale throne and persuaded the Bethunians to bear arms against the treacherous mercenaries, Engle fought overnight in what became one of the most epic instances of lightsaber combat ever recorded. After the battle, Silvain became uncertain of herself due to her misjudgements, vowing to venture as a lone Jedi and leaving Engle. He later broke the siege of Bardotta, for which he was renowned as the great "Blade of Bardotta," and eventually stepped down from combat duty to serve as a cook at the Jedi Outpost on the planet Elphrona, becoming known for his Nine-Egg Stew by the time of the Nihil maurauders' attacks in 232 BBY.

Master Engle was embroiled in combat again while fighting the Nihil on Elphrona alongside fellow outpost Jedi Master Loden Greatstorm, Jedi Knight Indeera Stokes, and Padawan Bell Zettifar. Engle was later reassigned to the Jedi outpost on the world Derra before leading a drift of Jedi Vector starfighters against the Nihil raid on the Cyclor Shipyards, rescuing Zettifar. Together with Stokes and other pilots, Engle defended the planet Valo during the devestating Nihil assault on its Republic Fair in 231 BBY, and later single-handedly foiled a raid on the world Quilken.

When the Nihil claimed ten Outer Rim sectors as part of their Occlusion Zone in 230 BBY, Engle was among the Jedi trapped behind its Stormwall boundaries. He spent a year attempting to send a message out of Nihil space by collecting parts to build an EX droid that could bypass the Stormwall.

Personality and traits
As an Ikkrukkian, Engle had pale gray skin, a pair of eyes with blue pupils and black irises under black eyebrows, two bulges on his forehead, and free-flowing black hair, which connected with a black moustache with a long beard. His hair turned white as he aged, and the beard grew voluminous in his later life, being held at the ends by six beard wraps inspired by Barash Silvain's braids. As a youngling and Padawan, Engle tied his hair back in a ponytail. He also did so on occassion with a light hair tie as a full-fledged Jedi, but otherwise let his shoulder-length hair loose.

His left eye became blinded, with a long scar visible over it, but the Jedi covered the wound with a yellow eye patch. The Ikkrukkian had a strong, athletic body in his youth, and kept a burly build after retiring from active Jedi service, speaking with a gruff and expressive voice. As a young Jedi, Engle preferred to wear dark robes in stark contrast to Barash Silvain and her white robes. The Ikkrukkian lived a long life and stood 1.93 meters, or 6 ft 4 in, tall.

Skills and abilities
Despite being in the "bottom middle" of his class as a youngling, Porter Engle trained to become a formidable warrior in lightsaber combat, unparalleled as a duelist and admired across the galaxy. He became an esteemed Jedi who was compared with Masters Yoda, Zaviel Tepp, Arkoff, Brisbane, and Cherff Maota, and his blade endured tens of thousands of hours of practice and combat. Engle could lock his blade into an opponent's lightsaber telekinetically, holding them in place, and use his shoto lightsaber to attack the other unsuspecting lightsaber-wielder; he successfully bested a fellow Jedi Master using the technique.

The Jedi also had mastery of simultaneous, coordinated telekinesis of multiple objects, being able to confuse and impress opponents on the Boneworld with deflecting blaster bolts through tiny sabacc chips levitated around himself, redirecting many Bethune missiles when using the Force together with his sister, Silvain,] and single-handedly lifting and crushing a heavy tank at the siege of Firevale. Engle could extend his senses via the Force to gauge others' emotions even when they were out of sight, as well as anticipate danger and deflect and freeze blaster bolts using only the Force. The accompaniment of a hand gesture was optional when he countered blaster fire, being able to accurately return the bolts even to disarm opponents rather than kill them. Engle was confident that firing at a Jedi was essentially the same as shooting oneself. According to Jedi legend, his prowess in deflecting the blaster shots of hundreds of mercenaries on Bardotta earned him the title "Blade of Bardotta," and continued to perform valiantly in his later years at during the rise of the Nihil.

The Ikkrukkian was capable of falling from a great height and jumping up even to the top of a canyon, as well as sprinting and pushing opponents and taming beasts by calming them and forming a connection with their minds via the Force. Engle was also a proficient medic, using the Force to treat wounds. He recited Jedi teachings about the omnipotence of the Force while cooking a stew, and even did so with Barash Silvain while he fought with his sabers. At the Battle of Valo, he united other Jedi's minds in battle meditation, coordinating their actions as one to rescue those on the brink of death.

By the time of the Nihil, Engle had a wealth of experience as a teacher, explorer, diplomat, and warrior that he drew on in terms of battlefield strategies. He was a persuasive diplomat, being able to negotiate a truce with Field Marshal Tozen of the Bethune during the siege on Firevale, although it was broken by a combination of Viess' disregard of life and a tragic misjudgement on the part of Barash Silvain. However, Master Stellan Gios doubted Engle's diplomatic capabilities, deeming the man to be lacking in sensitivity.

Porter Engle was capable with animals, being able to ride an avian creature on Gansevor and steelee mounts on Elphrona. He bent down to scratch behind Ember's ear and could quickly tame agitated steelees, his touch and Force connection with them calming their muscles and emotions. The Ikkrukkian could similarly ride a starfighter when standing outside one, enduring the high speed battle against the Nihil in Valo's skies. As a pilot, he also led a drift of Jedi Vectors. On Daedus, Engle could make and control a fire in a forest so as to avoid attention, as well as build an EX droid using salvaged components and repairing his shuttle's engine housing.

Porter Engle's Jedi attire as a youngling consisted of white robes, which ended in sleeves with a parallel pair of thin golden lines, over a gray tunic and beige trousers. He also had a brown belt with a gray clasp and black boots. The first training lightsaber that he picked up had a blue blade and a straight, gray hilt. As a Padawan, Engle wore a white tunic under tan robes and dark boots, as with Barash Silvain, although the former had a blue belt while the latter had a green one. Later, at the pair's reunion, each Jedi were dressed in a dark brown tunic under hazel brown robes, a dark brown belt, and dark boots.

While a young Jedi Master, Engle fashioned sleeveless dark gray robes over a biege overtunic and a gray undertunic as well as dark gray trousers. The Ikkrukkian also had a dark poncho and a dark hooded cloak, which featured light lines along the edges, and could be used in conjunction with a dark fabric that concealed his face below the nose. Donning black gloves and boots, Engle wore a golden belt with a silver-colored clasp bearing the High Republic crest over his robes. While reporting to the Jedi Council following Barash Silvain's departure, Engle wore white Temple robes, which included a hooded cloak over an overtunic and an undertunic, with brown boots and a black belt bearing a gray clasp of the High Republic crest. Similar to Silvain, he had his hair braided, hanging down over his torso from the right side.

In his older age, Engle wore a yellow-brown tunic with its sleeves rolled up, hazel brown robes, and loose-fitting beige trousers that were tucked into his dark brown leather boots, which were flexible to support his large frame. He put on a brown belt with several pouches and a golden clasp bearing the crest of the High Republic. The Ikkrukkian also sported a yellow eye patch over his blinded left eye and a brown ring on the index fingers of each hand.

While trapped in the Occlusion Zone, Engle wore civilian clothing to keep a low profile from the Nihil, including a circular olive-gray metal hat, a dark eye patch, and a worn olive-gray poncho over a dark gray sleeveless tunic that extended down to his thighs and gray trousers underneath. Over the tunic was a black belt with shoulder straps and an olive-gray trim along the middle, including an extension that suspended a pouch below Engle's left waist. He also wore black gauntlet gloves that exposed his fingers and a pair of black boots.

Tools and weaponry
The Jedi wielded a lightsaber with an intricately detailed golden hand guard in conjunction with a shorter shoto, both of which had blue blades. Engle lost the latter blade during his battle on Gansevor, when he hurled it into a tank and caused it to explode. Similarly, Engle could flick a button on his remaining saber to keep the blade ignited while tossing the weapon. Its hilt had grooves that were worn into the metal due to long hours of use, and it made a snug fit into his lightsaber holster. He flew a Jedi Vector starfighter into space battles against Nihil forces.

As a cook, Master Engle used a ladle and a pot over a cooker that included a hob with knobs and a hot oven in Elprona Outpost's dining chamber. The outpost also included sleeping chambers for the Jedi and a kitchen, which was stocked with ingredients and featured an island with a large cooking aparatus that emitted blue flames and could hold a pan with dual handles. He was skilled at dual-wielding kitchen knives, making use of a ladle and a pot when cooking on the Boneworld.

Inside the Occlusion Zone, the Ikkrukkian carried a pack that included the receiver unit for the EX droid that he hoped would bypass the Stormwall. Its other parts were assembled in the shuttle that he used to travel through Nihil space.
