Yarael Poof was a Jedi Master in the Star Wars series. He first appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.
A year before the Trade Federation invaded Naboo, Yarael Poof defended the Jedi Temple from the Yinchorri. One warrior was captured and interrogated by the Jedi Order.
After Naboo was invaded, Poof was still a respected member of the Jedi Council and was present when Qui-Gon Jinn reported that a Zabrak assasin attacked him and Jinn believed him to be a Sith Lord. Jinn also presented Anakin Skywalker to the Council and believed him to be the Chosen One. Poof along with the other Council members refused to train the boy until Qui-Gon was killed by Darth Maul.
Poof was later assigned to stop Ashaar Khorda from attacking Coruscant using an artifact capable of destroying the planet. The Jedi Master formed an alliance with Jango Fett and Zam Wesell to stop the terrorist. Khorda stabbed Poof with a vibroblade but the terrorist was shortly killed by Jango Fett. Yarael uses the last amounce of the Force to stop the device, saving trillions of lives in Coruscant but died in the process.
