    Naeshahn was a female Nelvaanian Jedi Knight of Old Jedi Order, and the master of Padawan Ebor Taulk. In 33 BBY, she and her Padawan were sent by Mace Windu to Yinchorr to negotiate with the Yinchorri when they had allegedly assaulted several planets. They made both on the way to this, however, were killed shortly afterwards. Naeshahn's mutilated body and her Padawan were later found in Finis Valorum's chambers.


    A female Nelvaanian from the planet Nelvaan, Naeshahn was discovered to be to be connected to the Force and her entire family and clan decided to send her to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Agreed and accepted by the Jedi High Council, Naeshahn entered the Temple Academy to begin her training in the ways of the Force. When she was old enough, Naeshahn was selected as a Padawan by a Jedi Master and she began one-on-one training that would last for over a decade before taking and passing her Trials of Knighthood and ascending to the rank of Jedi Knight.

    Accepting missions and assignments from the Jedi High Council, Naeshahn was an active Jedi in the decade before the reemergence of the Sith. While she would never learn of the Sith's machinations, she would suffer the ripple effects of the dark sider's manipulation of events. After taking on young Ebor Taulk as her Padawan, the pair was dispatched by Master of the Order Mace Windu to investigate the disturbance in the Yinchorri system. Upon their arrival, the Sith-incited violence on Yinchorr overwhelmed Naeshahn and Padawan Taulk and they were killed by the war-like Yinchorri. At the behest of Darth Sidious, the architect of the uprising, Sate Pestage and Kinman Doriana arranged for the bodies of the Jedi to be shipped to the Presidential Tower of the Senate Building on Coruscant. Supreme Chancellor Finis Valorum then contacted the High Council in hopes that they would send a larger strike force to deal with the Yinchorri Uprising.
