|Chronological and Political Information|
Balin Tallanvor was a Rotronian Jedi Master during the later days of the Republic and during the Clone Wars. Balin was the friend and mentor of Bronn Holcom after the death of Holcom’s master. Tallanvor was to take one of the empty seats on the Jedi Council prior to the Jedi Purge at the end of the Clone Wars.
Balin, while enroute to Coruscant from the Outer Rim Territories, came under attack and was stranded in the backwater Kavas Sector. On the isolated worlds surrounded by the Pryvious Nebula, Balin and his companions found a lost remnant of the Sith Empire which had been isolated since the end of the Great Galactic War. Balin would eventually lose his life while attempting to protect his companions and charges from the Sith, which would go on to become the Shadow Imperium.
Born on Rotex in 63 BBY, Balin was discovered to have latent potential in the Force shortly after his birth. Separated from his family, Balin was taken to Coruscant to train in the Jedi Temple before he was a year old.
Jedi Knighthood and MasteryEdit
Days prior to the enactment of Order 66 by Palpatine, Balin was on his way back to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, escorting the Jedi historian Nyna Larkin and a group of 5 younglings through the Mid Rim and Expansion Region territories. It was known that Tallanvor's ship came under fire by Separatist forces and that Balin was attempting to lose his pursuers. Nothing more had been found concerning the incident. Balin's ship never made it to Coruscant and no communications were ever received after his ship went into hyperspace. It was thought that Balin and all hands aboard his vessel were lost.
The truth was that Balin hastily put his ship on a course that would put them in the Kavas Sector, where Balin's quick actions saved the crew and saw them safely navigate the Maris Drift in the sector. Their ship had received heavy damage, however, and Balin was forced to land on the abandoned world of Dismora.
Balin would assist his group in surviving on Dsimora over the next years until his group came under the notice of the Sith Remnant in the sector. Balin would teach his surviving friends to evade the Sith until he was forced to confront the up and coming Sith group leader, Lilandra Blackthorne. During the confrontation, Balin was killed by Blackthorne.
During the years Balin spent stranded on Dismora, he became increasingly convinced that he was helping to shelter a very important individual among his group.
Appearance and PersonalityEdit
Balin was best known for the passion with which he pursued causes he felt were important. While staying centered in the Force, Balin was quick to champion the less fortunate individuals in the galaxy. As a rarity in the Jedi Order, Balin believed in the philosophy of the Unified Force over the other, the Living Force. Balin always stated that even seemingly insignificant individuals could and would eventually influence the Force and the destiny of the galaxy.
