Ruchikila was a female Felacatian Jedi Initiate who trained in the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars.


A Force-sensitive female Felacatian from the planet , Ruchikila was initiated within the Jedi Order, and learned the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple's academy during the Separatist Crisis which plagued the Galactic Senate. When the Clone Wars erupted between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Ruchikila was nearing the age at which she was eligible to be selected by a Jedi Master for an apprenticeship.

As many Jedi were away from the Temple during the war, Grand Master Yoda oversaw Ruchikila's clan's training. During a session of blindfolded seeker testing, Yoda received an urgent message from Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi and his former apprentice, Anakin Skywalker, from the planet Lanteeb. On an undercover mission, the two Jedi's request was met without hesitation and Master Yoda left Ruchikila and the other Initiates to test by themselves for a time.

By the end of the war in 19 BBY, Ruchikila was still in the Jedi Temple when Order 66 was issued by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, who was revealed to be the Sith Lord Darth Sidious. As Anakin Skywalker, who had fallen to the dark side and became Darth Vader, led the 501st Legion to raid the temple and eliminate all the Jedi, Ruchikila served in the defense, but was killed in the massacre.
