Saba Sebatyne, a female Barabel who fought against her own animal instincts and bloodlust in order to become a high-ranking member of the Order, was one of the most powerful Jedi in the Expanded Universe. Luke Skywalker’s failure to prevent his nephew Jacen Solo from falling to the dark side would be punished with his exile for his role in exacerbating the Second Galactic Civil War.
Although Kenth Hamner was Grand Master of the Jedi Order in his absence, his leadership style provoked numerous internal disputes that eventually resulted in a confrontation with Saba Sebatyne. Despite her protests, Hamner pressed his assault, which led to his untimely demise. She was subsequently named Grand Master of the Jedi Order by her fellow Jedi.
