Benn Anaron was an Jedi Master during the years leading up to the Galactic Empire.
Benn came from a long line of highly respected soldiers but was discovered at a young age to be Force-Sensitive. He was taken to the temple and trained as a youngling but when the time came to be selected by a Master, no one chose him.
Disgraced Benn fled the order, returning to the senate guards. He married and had a son, Cossy Anaron who would go on to serve in Harash Soru's Jedi Order. After some time however Benn's powers began to manifest again and the Jedi decided it would be safer to bring him back for re-training. Benn became a well known historian and fought bravely in the Clone Wars.
He was later killed in a fierce duel against Dooku where he gave his life to allow his fellow Jedi to escape.
