Name: Nomi Sunrider

Rank: Jedi Grandmaster

Tier: High 1

Background: Nomi Sunrider was a Human female who served as a Jedi Master and later Grand Master of the Jedi Order in the days of the Galactic Republic. Born Nomi Da-Boda, she married Andur Sunrider, who was training to become a Jedi Knight, and eventually gave birth to a baby girl, whom they named Vima. During a trip to the Stenness system, Andur was ambushed by gang members of Bogga the Hutt, who were after the Adegan crystals carried by Sunrider and her husband. The ensuing fight witnessed the murder of Andur, and Sunrider's decision to begin down the path to become a Jedi Knight. Sunrider eventually completed her training under the Jedi Master Thon, and was placed in charge of the Jedi relief mission sent to Onderon to aid Ulic Qel-Droma in the Freedon Nadd Uprising. Along with several other Jedi, Sunrider helped Qel-Droma bring about the end of the Naddist Revolt, essentially putting an end to the reign of the Sith on Onderon. Following those events, Sunrider was one of many Jedi to participate in the Great Sith War against the rise of Exar Kun and his apprentice, the fallen Jedi Ulic Qel-Droma. During the war, Sunrider witnessed Qel-Droma slay his own brother Cay and, guided by her intense emotions, used her powers to permanently sever Qel-Droma from The Force. With Sunrider's defeat of Qel-Droma, the Sith War was soon brought to an end.

Following the devastation of the Great Sith War, Sunrider steadily climbed the ranks of the Jedi and was eventually made Grand Master of the Jedi Order around the time of the Conclave on Exis Station, a conclave which Sunrider had assembled so the Jedi could discuss the rebuilding of the Order following the end of the war.

It was later that Sunrider found herself in the World Between Worlds with Han Solo and Chewbacca, the three in a massive spot of bother.

Weaknesses: Nomi Sunrider is far weaker in combat than she is with the Force. When engaging Sunrider in a battle, a quick approach immediately at close quarters is well suited. While no slouch with a blade, Nomi is far more dangerous with her variety of combat and non-combat Force abilities. A Ysalamir would be useful in this case, furthermore, preventing her from using her Force Sever is vital for survival. Under no circumstances can one let Sunrider use her more esoteric based Force powers. With her ancient arts, she can effectively remove any threat from the battlefield.
