Star Wars: A Flicker of Hope
(a.k.a. The Prodigal Jedi) Master to Vasha Stormtamer
Fit and healthy for his age, the Prodigal Jedi Master is still charming and energetic. He keeps his salt and pepper hair short (in order not to draw too much attention on his receding hairline.) He wears a well groomed beard and has a generous and engaging smile. When questioned, he has the obnoxious habit of answering in short sentences, open to a large number of different (but yet profound?) interpretations.

A close collaborator of Dooku, the Corellian Jedi Master Kieran Tasiri left the Jedi Order shortly prior the Battle of Naboo, utterly disappointed, somewhat even disgusted, by a series of misguided decisions by the Jedi Council, resulting notably in successive debacles at Galidraan, the Yinchorri system, and Baltizaar.
Unwilling to join Count Dooku’s Separatist movement, Kieran chose not to involve himself with galactic politics (nor would he plays any recognizable role in the major events of the following decade.) Some in the Jedi Order believe that he might have worked as a smuggler for a time, or that the Prodigal Master even turned Gray.
This situation changed at the onset of the second year of the Clone Wars. Kieran confronted his former Padawan (some suspect his former lover) the dark jedi Vora Synn, capturing her and bringing her back to the Jedi Council. He then petitioned the leaders of the Order to be readmitted in their midst, after more than ten years of self-imposed exile.
He was recently awarded a new Padawan, Vasha Stormtamer.
Sent on Aeten II to confront Governor Leran Zarin, suspected to be a practitioner of the Dark Side of the Force by the Order, Kieran is believed to have been traitorously killed when the clone troopers assisting him with the arrest suddenly turned on him.
Our heroes learned on Dorin that he was a founding member of the New Jedi Covenant, a secret society devoted to the task of uncovering and eradicating all traces of the Sith.
