In Revenge of the Sith, Anakin joins the Jedi Council.

The number of members seems to stay the same, at 12, so he must have replaced a member who either left the council or died.

Is it known which member he replaced and what happened to them?

I've seen some people claim he replaced Even Piell, but I can find no proof of this.


He replaced Even Piell.

According to this article at the official Star Wars web site, between 22 BBY and 19 BBY Obi-Wan had replaced Saesee Tinn and Anakin had replaced Even Piell (amongst several other changes).

Here is a useful chart from the article:

As for Piell's fate, he was killed by an Anooba during the Clone Wars — specifically the Battle of Lola Sayu — as seen in the episode "Citadel Rescue" of the Clone Wars television series.

His death opened up a seat on the Council, which was filled by an overly eager Anakin during Revenge of the Sith.

  • I just read the full article and it says no such thing. He more likely replaced Rancisis.

  • @Conner : I can only speak to what I read at the linked URL in November 2015.
