|Quinlan Vos, nicknamed Quin by those closest to him, was a Kiffar male Jedi Master who, despite walking perilously close to the dark side of the Force throughout his life, served the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic in their final days. Born into Clan Vos, the ruling bloodline of the planet Kiffu, Vos possessed a strong sensitivity to the Force, one that nurtured in him an exceptional talent for psychometry. After Jedi Master Tholme discovered his Force sensitivity, Vos underwent initial Jedi training on his homeworld instead of at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, as his people hoped to one day make him a Guardian of Kiffu. Yet everything changed for Vos after his power-seeking great-aunt, Tinte Vos, secretly sacrificed his parents - Guardians Quian and Pethros Vos - to Anzati vampires and then tricked him into psychometrically experiencing their murders. To master his subsequently acquired fear of Anzati, Vos began proper Jedi training as Tholme's Padawan learner, though the memory of his parents' deaths spawned in him a darkness that he would never be able to vanquish.Vos took the lead in a number of missions and events, including the Stark Hyperspace War, and he eventually achieved Jedi Knighthood. He took a Padawan of his own, Aayla Secura, and they formed a close bond over their years of training. While investigating a glitteryll smuggling ring, the two were dosed with glitteryll and robbed of their memories, bringing Vos ever closer to the dark side. Finding an unlikely ally in the bounty hunter Vilmarh Grahrk, Vos returned to the Jedi Temple with help from Jedi Master Mace Windu to recover his forgotten training. Once Vos rescued Secura from the Anzati Dark Jedi Volfe Karkko, Secura resumed her own training under Tholme, though it was not long before Vos and Secura were again reunited. Their combined efforts in rescuing the heir to Ryloth's Clan Secura earned them elevations in the Jedi Order: Secura became a Jedi Knight, while Vos, who had by now overcome the loss of his memory, ascended to Jedi Mastery.After participating in the Battle of Geonosis, Vos turned down orders from the Jedi High Council to serve as a Jedi General in the resultant Clone Wars, instead opting to oversee a spy network that he had developed within the rising Confederacy of Independent Systems. Vos later turned to infiltrating the Confederacy, specifically Count Dooku's inner circle of disciples, to find the identity of the second Sith Lord who was eluding the Jedi. Vos's three-year gambit subjected him to constant tests for Dooku's trust, pitted him against his friends, and saw him commit several cold-blooded assassinations as he sought to justify his exploits. His deceptions persisted until the Siege of Saleucami in the war's final year, in which he renounced Dooku's fold once and for all and returned to the Jedi Order. Vos finally became a Jedi General and took up a command within the Grand Army of the Republic, only to be betrayed by his clone troopers during the Battle of Kashyyyk as part of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's Order 66, which branded all Jedi as traitors to the Republic. Thanks to aid from Vilmarh Grahrk, Vos survived the ambush and went into hiding with his lover, Khaleen Hentz, and their son, Korto Vos, to escape from the newly christened Galactic Empire.
