  • Veneka was a senior Twi'lek Padawan who was enrolled in the Old Jedi Order's academy on Coruscant during the final years of the Republic Classic Era.


    A female Twi'lek from the world of Ryloth, Veneka was discovered to be Force-sensitive and was sent to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant where she would learn the ways of the Force by the Old Jedi Order. When the Clone Wars started, Veneka was still a Padawan until she was promoted to the rank of Jedi Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic.

    Shortly after the battle of Kothlis, she took with a group of other Padawans part in a practice match, which the Jedi Master Taria Damsin hosted with Ahsoka Tano. To this end, two teams were formed where Veneka belonged to Green team led by Ahsoka. When the competition began, the Padawans had a path through battle droids and other obstacles to their destination, a high tower, on top of which the goal was to pave and these reach as far as possible before the Blue Team led by Master Damsin. After they had fought over obstacles and through droid, some of the other Padawans were eliminated in his team. When they reached the tower, Veneka and Chivas were only ones left. They immediately began to climb the tower, but were overtaken by recent Padawans that opposed the team before they reached the top. As they reached the spire at the same time with them, the game ended in a draw.

    In 19 BBY, Veneka remained at the Jedi Temple until was almost over after the battle of Coruscant, resulting the death of Count Dooku. After Mace Windu and his team tried to arrest Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, who was revealed to be the Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Sidious defeated the Jedi with the help of Anakin Skywalker, who had fallen to the Dark Side of the Force and became Darth Vader. At the beginning of the Great Jedi Purge, Sidious declared all the Jedi, including Veneka, as traitors to the Republic and enacted Order 66, a mandate that Republic clone troopers across the galaxy had been conditioned to follow without question since before the Clone Wars had broken out. Veneka had perished in the attack of the Jedi Temple when Darth Vader led a large detachment of troopers from the 501st Legion to eliminate all the Jedi.
