A Force-sensitive Qiraash male, Repka De was instructed in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order, eventually attaining the rank of Jedi Master. Trained as a Guardian, Master De was well-trained in the art of lightsaber combat; so much so that he was selected by the acting battlemaster to gain the title of lightsaber instructor at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. After the Jedi High Council approved the appointment, Master De began teaching basic lightsaber techniques at the Temple to the many Initiates that passed through the Temple academy. Master De, an instructor while the famed Jedi Yoda was still a Knight himself, was often quoted in regards to his views on winning and losing.
