Kritz Drassarb was a male Barabel Padawan who served as a member of the Jedi Order during the later years of the Galactic Republic. Drassarb studied under the Twi'lek Jedi Master Vhiin Thorla and was killed while the pair were investigating a band of pirates operating in the Mid Rim.


Kritz Drassarb was born on the world of Barab I during the waning years of the Galactic Republic and joined the Jedi Order at a very young age. Arriving at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, Drassarb trained in the ways of the Force and became the Padawan of the Twi'lek Jedi Master Vhiin Thorla. In 23 BBY, a year before the Clone Wars erupted between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Drassarb and Thorla were sent by the Jedi Council to investigate a band of pirates that were operating in the Mid Rim region of the galaxy. They came into conflict with the pirates and two months later, the pirate band had been dismantled and Drassarb was killed in the terrible crossfire, and became one with the Force.[1]

The Jedi Council absolved Thorla of any responsibility for causing Drassarb's death, but the Twi'lek still blamed himself for it. He returned to his homeworld, the planet Ryloth, where he meditated on how he could have saved Drassarb. Thorla soon found a new purpose and began rescuing Twi'leks that had been captured by slavers. He established a settlement on Ryloth to serve as a safe haven for liberated slaves, and was very protective of the settlement's inhabitants, because he still felt guilt for Drassarb's death.[1]
