Jolee Bindo (Iconic)
N Male Human (???) Grey Guru 16.
Weapon of Choice: Dao sword
A spirit sensitive human, Jolee Bindo was inducted into the Guru Order and trained in the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. During his days as a Guru in training, Bindo was considered brash and reckless, often defying the will of the Spiritual council in order to do what he felt was right, as exemplified by his actions during the Empire’s blockade of “The City”, which was was unable to receive food and supplies, and no help from the Senate was forthcoming. Bindo decided to help the people himself. He acquired a ship and was joined by a friend. Together they stole from the rich, considering it a “tax on the greedy,” and ran the supplies through the blockade to the city.
Eventually, his was boarded by none other than his future wife, Nayama, and the two were married, although marriage was frowned upon by many Jedi of the time. He discovered her to be strong in the way of the spirits and he took to training her personally despite the advice of the High Council and his apprentice status.1
During the war with Exar Kun, his wife, like many other Jedi, fell to the dark side. She attempted to turn Bindo, who resisted, culminating in a vicious duel which brought her to her knees. Unable to kill his own wife, Bindo let her go; this would ultimately lead to the deaths of many Jedi at her hands before she was finally struck down in battle. A sensitive topic for Bindo, the Jedi believed that he was unlucky in his life and just had, “So many bad memories, some you never want to think about ever again.” In fact, it takes a great deal of prodding to get him to talk about his wife at all.
The Council did not punish Bindo for his actions, though, stating he had learned his lesson the hard way. When instead they wished to promote him to the status of Jedi Knight, Bindo lost faith in the wisdom of the Council, and went into self-exile, giving up his aspirations to be a Jedi Consular.1
