very minor TBB premiere spoiler

In the first episode of The Bad Batch, we see the aftermath of Order 66 across the galaxy. When the Bad Batch returns to Kamino, they see a covered dead body whose hand drops a lightsaber. Clearly, this is a Jedi who was killed in Order 66, but do we know who exactly it is?

Obviously, it seems like this is a Jedi who was on Kamino, but why would a Jedi be on Kamino so close to the end of the war? Is there anyone confirmed in SW to have been on Kamino at the time? Does the Jedi's lightsaber grant any clues?

    I'm pretty sure we don't know (yet). I've seen much speculation that it's someone called Rig Nema, but nothing definitive

  • To answer your question about why a Jedi should be on Kamino, presumably to replace Shaak Ti in her role as general, observer, protector, and representative of the Jedi Order May 9, 2021 at 23:38
  • @AntonHinkel Why did Shaak Ti need to be replaced at that point? She didn't canonically die in Order 66, did she? I'm not questioning your reasoning for a Jedi being on Kamino, because that does make sense, but I can't remember what happened to Shaak Ti that would mean that she couldn't be on Kamino.

    @SophietheJediKnight wookiepedia says she was killed by Vader at the temple. The cited sources seem to be Disney era, and therefore canon.

  • Oh really? I thought that she was killed by Grievous in a deleted scene that isn't technically canon anymore. That is interesting; I didn't know she died! May 10, 2021 at 17:08
