Hello, searcher. I will guide you on your way.
~ A pre-recorded message by Avar Kriss in a holocron

Avar Kriss, also known as the Hero of Hetzal, is one of the main protagonists of the Star Wars: The High Republic multimedia project.

Kriss was a member of the Jedi Order considered a paragon by her peers and the citizens of the Galactic Republic alike. She grew up and was close with fellow Jedi Elzar Mann and Stellan Gios, the former of which she had a secretive romantic interest in. Like Gios, Kriss was a shining example of what a Jedi should aspire to be and was famous across the galaxy for her heroic deeds.

After saving the Hetzal system from imminent destruction at the hands of the Great Hyperspace Disaster, Kriss was proclaimed the "Hero of Hetzal" and named Marshal of Starlight Beacon, an enormous and advanced space station on the Galactic Frontier. She wielded a green single-bladed lightsaber and wore white-and-cream robes with a golden cape. Unlike the Jedi of the future, Kriss was compassionate rather than dogmatic. She was also willing to sacrifice herself in the stead of others, and found the challenges she faced on the galaxy's frontier invigorating rather then tedious.

Nearly two and a half centuries later, during the era of the New Republic which followed the destruction of Darth Sidious' Galactic Empire, Luke Skywalker discovered a Jedi holocron that contained an interactive hologram of Kriss. In the recording, Kriss greeted the future viewers of the message and offered to guide them. At one point, this holocron recording was viewed by Jedi Padawan Hennix, who trained at Luke Skywalker's Jedi Temple before its destruction.


Avar Kriss is a cameo character in the novel The High Republic: Into the Dark, the main protagonist of the novel The High Republic: Light of the Jedi, the tritagonist of the comic series The High Republic, a cameo character in the comic series The High Republic Adventures, a minor character in the novels The High Republic: The Rising Storm and The High Republic: Out of the Shadows, a supporting character in the novel The High Republic: The Fallen Star, and a posthumous cameo character in the comic miniseries The Rise of Kylo Ren.


Early life

Avar Kriss was a Force-sensitive human female born during the High Republic era, a period of prosperity and expansion for the Galactic Republic and the Jedi Order. As a child, Kriss was taken to the Jedi Grand Temple on the Republic's capital planet Coruscant to be trained in the Jedi arts. As a youngling, Kriss constructed her own lightsaber and grew close to fellow Jedi Elzar Mann and Stellan Gios. As a teenager, Kriss was taken under the wing of Jedi Master Cherff Maota as his Padawan learner.

Kriss and Elzar Mann became romantically involved during their time as Padawans, although as the Jedi forbid such attachments they kept their relationship a secret. Eventually, Kriss, Gios and Mann all passed their Jedi Trials and became fully-fledged Jedi Knights. Having matured since their Padawan years, Kriss and Mann ended their forbidden relationship. Kriss and Gios later went on to become Jedi Masters by the time they were thirty, yet Mann became stuck as a Jedi Knight due to his unorthodox methodology.
