    Chankar Kim was a Human female Jedi Master from Naboo, serving the Old Jedi Order during the final period of the Galactic Republic. Three months before the Battle of Geonosis, Chankar Kim selected young Tallisbeth Enwandung-Esterhazy as her apprentice. Unfortunately, Chankar Kim was one of the two hundred Jedi to join Mace Windu in traveling to Geonosis to try and stop Count Dooku and the Separatist Crisis. However, Master Kim was killed in the battle leaving Tallisbeth without a Master.


    Chankar Kim was a Force-sensitive Human female from the world of Naboo, living during the last decades before the end of the Galactic Republic. After being accepted and brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, probably as an infant, Chankar began her training in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order. After passing her Trials of Knighthood, Kim eventually reached the rank of Jedi Knight and later a Jedi Master. Three months before the outbreak of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY, she took Tallisibeth Enwandung-Esterhazy, nicknamed "Scout," as her Padawan, although even Jedi Council member Mace Windu and other Jedi failed to see what potential Kim saw in the Force-weak girl.

    Three months after Kim took Scout as her Padawan, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi was captured by the Confederacy of Independent Systems while he was tracking down the Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Jango Fett on the planet Geonosis. Windu assembled a group of Jedi to free them, and Kim was part of the task force. Before leaving, she told Scout that her Padawan would accompany her on the "next mission". However, the rescue mission turned into a full-scale battle, and Kim fell in the fight against the Confederate droid army, leaving Scout an orphaned Padawan with a case of survivor's guilt. After Chankar's death, her Padawan found another Master, Jai Maruk. However, on their first mission together, Maruk was killed too, leaving Scout once again without a Master.

    Personality and traitsEdit

    Kim took Scout as her Padawan, although many Jedi failed to find the reason why she decided to train the seemingly ungifted girl. Although a fully trained Jedi Master, Kim was killed on Geonosis, like many other Jedi.

    Behind the scenesEdit

    Chankar Kim was first mentioned in Yoda: Dark Rendezvous, a novel written by Sean Stewart and published in 2004. She later received an entry in the 2008 The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia.
