Zett Jukassa was a Jedi Padawan during the Clone Wars. At the time of Order 66, he was killed by Clone Troopers trying to escape with Bail Organa. He was potrayed by Jett Lucas.
Born in the waning years of the Galactic Republic, Zett Jukassa was trained at the Jedi Temple of Coruscant and attained the status of Padawan prior to the conclusion of the Clone Wars. In 19 BBY, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine issued Order 66 to the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic, labeling the entire Jedi Order as traitors to the state. As such, Jukassa and his Jedi brethren were declared enemies of the Republic, forcing them to fight for their lives when Darth Vader and the 501st Legion stormed the Temple with orders to exterminate its inhabitants. Jukassa fought bravely, killing several clones and Commander Appo before his own death, an event witnessed by Senator Bail Organa of Alderaan.
