|~ Cere Junda, to Cal Kestis|
Cere Junda was a human female Jedi who was trained by Jedi Master Eno Cordova. After she became a Knight, she took on a Padawan of her own named Trilla Suduri. However, after the passage of the infamous Order 66 and commencing of the Jedi Purge, she and Trilla would both end up captured and mercilessly tortured by the Galactic Empire. Trilla would fall to the Dark Side and become the Second Sister Inquisitor, an event which would drive Cere to use the Dark Side and escape in desperation. She would later on sever her Force connection out of guilt. But she did take on the fugitive Jedi Cal Kestis under her wing and attempt to revive the Jedi Order using a holocron - left behind by her old master - containing a list of Force sensitive children across the galaxy.

Intelligence: High. Cere was headstrong, reckless, naive as a Padawan. However, since her knighthood and the after the ordeals she has been through, she has matured into a fine teacher and wise leader. She is a capable tactician, a master of stealth, and a highly skilled and dangerous combatant overall. She is a masterful hacker and communications expert. She has also crafted various codes to mask the true identity of starships and get them through Imperial Navy blockades.
Weaknesses: Headstrong, reckless, naive as a Padawan. As of the Imperial Era, she struggles with PTSD following Order 66 and her torture at the Fortress Inquisitorius. She also struggles with her connection to the Dark Side of the Force, which can consume her when she is angered enough.
