  • Niebur Boton was a female Zeltron Jedi Knight who served the Jedi Order during the final decades of the Galactic Republic.


    Niebur Boton was a Force-sensitive female Zeltron who came from the world of Zeltros. Discovered by the Jedi, Niebur was taken from her family and traveled to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant where she began her training in the ways of the Force by the Old Jedi Order. After some time during the Separatist Crisis, Boton completed her Trials of Knighthood and was elevated to the rank of Jedi Knight.

    When the Clone Wars erupted across the galaxy, Boton fought as a General within the Grand Army of the Republic. In 19 BBY, as the war came to an end, the Republic's Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, who was revealed to be the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, issued Contingency Order 66 to the Army's clone troopers, a command ordering them to kill their Jedi leaders. Boton survived at first, but was eventually found by the newly risen Galactic Empire. Tortured by Inquisitor Antinnis Tremayne, Boton succumbed to the intense interrogation and revealed the names of several of her surviving comrades. Boton was killed soon after and became one with the Force as her body was transported to Coruscant by several Imperial stormtroopers. Meeting the body at its landing site, the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader took up the fallen Jedi's lightsaber and mutilated her body with it.
