Fisto was born on the planet Glee Anselm, in the Sabilon region. Trained by the Grand Master of the Jedi Order, Master Yoda, his distinctive head tentacles contained highly sensitive olfactory receptors that allowed him to detect pheremonal expressions of emotion and other changes in body chemistry. This was indeed a unique attribute not afforded to any other species of Jedi, either naturally or through the Force. As such, he had aspired to be assigned to the Council of Reconciliation, but was instead elected to the Jedi High Council.

Becoming a Jedi
Soon after dispatching the Pirates of Iridium in early 22 BBY, Fisto was chosen as one of the two hundred Jedi that accompanied Mace Windu to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Padme Amidala from the Seperatist leaders at the Genosian execuion arena. Amidst hundreds of droids, he came across one with the head of C-3PO; he pinned him underneath a B2 super battle droid before giving his signature grin.
Fisto survived the arena, escaping in the same LAAT/i gunship as Jedi Masters Yoda, Mace Windu, and Ki-Adi-Mundi. Then, along with the other survivors, he led the new Grand Army of the Republic in the Battle of Geonosis at the start of the Clone Wars.
The Clone Wars
In one of his first Clone Wars campaigns, Fisto led a team of clone SCUBA troopers in Battle of Mon Calamari against the Separatist-allied Quarren Isolation League, destroying a Quarren crab cannon in the process. Fisto later journeyed back to Dac upon discovering that the Isolation League had come back into being, under the leadership of strange jellyfish-like creatures known as Moappa. These beings grouped together to become one great beast, possessing superlative intelligence and the power of telepathy. Fisto defeated this being by scattering the individual creatures throughout the waters. Kit later forged a new accord on the world that led to joint Quarren-Mon Calamari representation in the Galactic Senate. During this battle Fisto had a fish like Yin Yang symbol on his belt.
A few months after the Battle of Geonosis, Fisto and Aayla Secura took residence on Kamino. One day the Jedi found several dead clone troopers. After examination by the Kaminoan scientists, they concluded that the troopers were infected by a nano-virus. After visiting the master cloner Sayn Ta, they stated that there was a Kaminoan traitor in the facility. Fisto and Secura traced the traitor and faced off against a group of super battle droids, which were given to the traitor by the Separatists. In the resulting skirmish, Secura was thrown off the platform and dragged down into the water by one of the battle droids. Kit quickly jumped after her and, being amphibious, breathed for the both of them, although it was more than "breathing for both of them" to Aayla and Fisto. Aayla then climbed up the platform and was grabbed by the traitor, with the nano-virus injector pointed to her arm. Aayla saved herself with great timing and pushed the injector into the traitor's own arm. The Kaminoan died instantly. Fisto's saving of Aayla started a brief relationship between the two that pushed the limits of the Jedi Code, similar to the relationship of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Siri Tachi.
Some months later, he would travel to Devaron with fellow Jedi Tholme, Aayla Secura, Tr'a Saa, and An'ya Kuro. Their mission was to locate and decimate a Separatist foundry launching raids on Republic supply convoys. While Tholme and Kuro lay injured and Secura was holding off Aurra Sing, Fisto and Saa assaulted and captured the base.
During the height of the Clone Wars, Fisto became the first to fight and defeat a new type of droid that was given the name "Jedi Killer." These droids were known for their unmatched combat abilities after demonstrating their power on an ARC trooper, designated CT-36/732, and nicknamed Sirty. Accompanying Fisto was Obi-Wan Kenobi, ARC trooper "Nate," four clone troopers, and barrister Doolb Snoil, who was a representative of the Galactic Senate. They traveled to the planet Ord Cestus in order to negotiate an agreement that would sell the "bio-droids" to the Republic; however, the plan soon became to recruit guerrillas to fight in a possible coup against the government. Fisto went by the false name of "Nemonus", a Dark Jedi, to trick the Five Families, whom the Jedi discovered to have complete control over the planet.
Near the end of the operation, he dueled with Dark Acolyte Asajj Ventress. She studied his moves while he took out her X'Ting minions with ease; when he came to her, he was ready. Kit accelerated into a blur of motion complex and rapid enough to baffle even Obi-Wan's experienced gaze. However, he was no match for Ventress's skill in Makashi and was wounded in the arm. He was saved from death by Obi-Wan, who arrived seconds before Ventress would have finished him. Obi-Wan, however, would have been beheaded if the near-unconscious Fisto had not quickly returned the favor. After Nute Gunray escaped from Luminara Unduli and Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi Council tracked him to a moon of Vassek and sent Kit Fisto to capture him. There Kit landed his Delta-7B in the fog and was reunited with his former Padawan and newly made Jedi Knight, Nahdar Vebb, who brought along a small squad of clones.
The group then entered a castle where Gunray was thought to be hiding, however, the lead was a ruse. The beacon led only to a hologram of Gunray laughing derisively. Gunray's image was replaced by that of Count Doooku's, informing them of a trap, but not indicating whether it was for them or for someone else. They soon realized that they had entered the sanctuary of General Grievous, who happened to be approaching the citadel they were infiltrating. Grievous was caught by surprise when the Jedi and their squad of clones engaged him, and suffered the loss of his legs before he escaped and retreated to the control room of his castle, where he directed efforts to eliminate the intruders.
After numerous traps and fighting roggwart, which had finished off the clone escort accompanying the Jedi, Fisto and Vebb witnessed from a hiding place the General exiting his control room. When the area was clear, Fisto entered the sequence on the security door that he remembered by watching Grievous. Fisto went to get inside of the control room however, Vebb, feeling a strong urge to defeat the Jedi killer once and for all, disputed with Fisto from the other side of the threshold. Vebb's fate was decided when a Ubrikkian Steamworks medicl unit remotely sealed the door between the two Jedi and alerted Grievous. Grievous defeated Fisto's colleague while dueling him by using a blaster with one of his free appendages. Kit then destroyed the console and exited the castle to a cliff precipice to wait for R6-H5 to bring his ship. Grievous then climbed the side of the cliff to trap Kit. The Jedi Master and the cyborg then engaged in an intense lightsaber duel. Grievous took the upper hand first, destabilizing Fisto with one of his favorite approach, 'windmilling' with his two upper arms while fencing with his two lower. It wouldn't last long however: Fisto retaliated by locking Grievous' numerous blades and severing one of his arms, reclaiming Nadhar's lightsaber in the process. Fisto then switched to Jar'Kai and quickly overpowered his opponent. As he was about to pin Grievous to the clif's wall, Grievous' MagnaGuards suddenly appeared and surrounded him. Ignoring Grievous taunts, Fisto force-jumped toward his starship and departed, leaving a fuming Grievous behind.
After a hostage crisis in the senate, Kit Fisto was sent to Rodia when the Rodian wildlife began dying. Senator Onaconda Farr was afraid the separatist had returned. Kit searched the waters, while his Commander stayed on the surface. While in the water, Master Fisto and his troops found the droid generator. It turned on the clones and fired at them, killing them. Master Fisto witnessed Robonino leaving the scene and pursued him. The bounty hunter threw several thermal detonators at the Jedi, but Kit Fisto redirected them in the generator, deactivating all droids on the planet. Unfortunately for the Jedi, Robonino was able to escape while Kit was distracted. Kit Fisto and the commander later reported to Senator Farr and told him that all droids were eliminated and the wildlife would turn back to form, but that the bounty hunter escaped. A Kwazel Maw then spit out Robonino on the shore next to them, and he was arrested.
For years, Fisto's name had been suggested as a candidate for the Jedi High Council. Humble, and feeling that he had not the skills for such an appointment, he would repeatedly decline such offers. Eventually, however, Fisto's exploits in the Clone Wars answered any lingering doubts about his suitability, and he ascended to a seat on the august body.
At some point during the war, Fisto traveled with Jedi Master Plo Koon to quell an uprising of the inmates of an underwater prison. Here they encountered the infamous Gen'Dai bounty hunter Durge, whom they trapped in the catacombs beneath the prison. Kit remained alert, thinking that Durge would escape before reinforcements arrived. Plo Koon was confident they had subdued the seemingly invincible bounty hunter, but as Kit predicted, the bounty hunter escaped.
Eventually, the Jedi learned of a bounty that had been placed on all Jedi. To end this threat, Fisto traveled with fellow Jedi Masters Mace Windu, Agen Kolar, and Saesee Tiin to the Rig—the base of operations for the Crimson Nova chapter of the Bounty Hunter's Guild. While the other three Jedi were wreaking havoc on the bounty hunters, Kit made his way to the prison cells. Upon freeing the prisoners, Kit incited an uprising of the inmates by reminding them of the wrong done to them by the bounty hunters before joining his fellow Jedi. The four soon made quick work of the bounty hunters, forcing them to drop the price on Jedi.
Revenge of the Sith
With a large Republic counterattack against the Core Worlds, General Grievous had ordered all members of the Council to retreat to a rendezvous point in the Outer Rim Territories. However, Republic Intelligence obtained information that Nute Gunray fled back to his stronghold on Cato Neimoidia. Kit Fisto, accompanied by General Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, led an assault on the Neimoidian homeworld of Cato Neimoidia. After a large aerial bombardment, the main clone force, led by General Fisto, landed and began to hammer the city's energy shields. After heavy fighting Kit and his clones finally broke through to the citadel where Nute Gunray was hiding. However, Gunray escaped before any of the Jedi could stop him.
During the Battle of Coruscant, Fisto, along with Mace Windu, initially provided protection of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, valiantly fighting against General Grievous's attempts to capture the Chancellor. When General Grievous tried to take the Chancellor by boarding the mag-lev train he was being evacuated in, Fisto and Windu pitted themselves against Grievous's strike force, saving the Chancellor and the countless civilians on board.
In one attempt, Grievous was so bold that he jumped onto the train and tried to pry open the roof of the car in which the Chancellor was in. Kit was the first to realize this danger and shot through the hole Grievous had made, followed by Mace Windu. While Mace was fighting Grievous, Kit took down two IG-100 MagnaGuards with ease, repulsing Grievous's attempt to take the Chancellor. However, their efforts proved to be in vain. When they heard of Shaak Ti's failure to protect Palpatine, they pursued Grievous's shuttle in a final, unsuccessful attempt.
Soon after Anakin Skywalker had revealed Chancellor Palpatine to be the Dark Lord of the Sith that the Jedi had been seeking for some time, Kit Fisto would accompany Mace Windu, Agen Kolar, and Saesee Tiin to confront him.
Fisto briefly chatted with Kolar and Tiin before their gunship departed to the Chancellor's office. He said he would have been much calmer if Yoda or Obi-Wan Kenobi had been with them. Master Tiin scolded him at this; he maintained that they should be capable of subduing Palpatine, and that they were sufficient for the task. Although his prowess allowed him to survive longer than Tiin and Kolar, Fisto's Shii-Cho mastery was no match for Sidious's superior skill. He met his end when Sidious, the very man he had "protected" a few days before, cleaved into his stomach.
Kit was always a joy to have around and was cool and calm during a fight. He always did what he had to do to finish the job.Kit was a fun guy and got his signature smile at the battle of Geonosis. He was romantically Involved with Aayla Secura, Who fell into water during a battle and Kit Fisto rescuing her, while Fisto was trying to breath for her it was most of a kiss, Breaking the Jedi Code.
Powers And Abilities
Kit Fisto was born on Glee Anselm. One of the characteristics of his species are those "tentacles" in the head, they serve a purpose of detecting the pheromones in the air, which gave Kit Fisto an advantage to know the people's feelings.
Kit Fisto is a master practitioner of Shii-Cho, and was considered to be one of the best swordsmen in the Jedi Order. Kit Fisto is one of the only Jedi that has mastered Form 1: Shii-Cho of Lightsaber. While sparring with Jedi Obi-wan Kenobi, Obi-wan said Master Fisto was a better swordsman than himself and while fighting Kit, it looked like a moving blur. His mastery of the form was advanced, and he applied it in many battles and duels, always with his trademark smile. He went head to head with many of the most dangerous adversaries of the Clone Wars and survived; A notable opponent was Grievous, whom Fisto almost defeated, as Form I's specialization against multiple foes, or in this case, multiple weapons, was well-suited to holding off the four Lightsabers Grievous' bizarre mechanical anatomy allowed him to wield. Fisto's quick thinking and speedy reflexes enabled him to recognize vulnerable body zones on his opponents and react immediately, as shown when he cut off Grievous' legs and later one of his hands during their duels. His versatility with Shii-Cho was such that he could ably apply it towards the usage of dual-blades, or even lightwhips.
Having been trained as a Jedi Consular, Master Fisto was adept in the use of the Force. For instance, he was capable of creating and manipulating water currents through use of the Force for both offensive and defensive purposes. Fisto developed his own Force technique from this ability, aptly named the Force water orb, which he used during the battle of Mon Calamari to destroy a cannon. He was the only known practitioner of this power, having created it himself. He also possessed an acute olfactory sense, allowing him to read the emotions of other sentient's.
Fisto was also skilled in the use of Force speed. On Ord Cestus, his Force enhanced speed even baffled Obi-Wan Kenobi's experienced gaze. Fisto was also an extremely skilled swimmer and honed his Jedi abilities to take advantage of his amphibious origins, making him a lethal foe underwater as well as on land. Also, he was skilled in hand-to-hand combat underwater, holding his own against Riff Tamson in an underwater brawl although he was unable to defeat him. Master Fisto is able to move fast under water but with no water resistance even faster on land.
Fisto's Lightsaber contained two crystals employing a bifurcating cyclical-ignition pulse that allowed the blade to operate underwater. This proved helpful on Mon Calamari during the Clone Wars. He wielded a green blade, the traditional color of Consulars.
R4-H5 served as Kit Fisto's Astromech droid during the Battle of Geonosis. R4-H5 had a dome painted a red-orange with a body that was green and yellow-green in color.
Jedi Master Kit Fisto was as comfortable in the vastness of space as he was in the waters of his home planet. Trained since childhood to move and fight in the three-dimensional realm below the surfaces of Glee Anselm's vast oceans, starfighter combat comes as second nature to him. Jedi training has only perfected his skills, while the precise and responsive controls of his ship enhance them even further. His tactics are as graceful as they are deadly, inspiring awe and respect in friend and foe alike. Though he was as skilled a pilot as any in the Jedi Order, Kit Fisto preferred engaging in planet-side combat, and took command of Republic forces in many unorthodox campaigns. As a result of his preference and skill, Kit Fisto did fewer performance enhancing modifications to his Delta-7 than many other Jedi. Instead, he strengthened its airframe, struts and landing gear to help it withstand high-speed reentry and rough landings, reasoning that the faster he could get on the ground, the sooner he'd be able to get into the fight. He used a droid called R4-H5 in this starfighter.
Kit Fisto was not without his weaknesses. Form 1: Shii-Cho was ideal when heavily outnumbered and effective against many opponents, but a single opponent was able to find flaw in it, and this proved to be Kit Fisto's downfall. Against Asajj Ventress on Ord Cestus, he simply wasn't quick enough with his blade, to deal with the Makashi specialist, and Shii-Cho was considered weak against Form II: Makashi in any case.
His final battle against Darth Sidious ended with Fisto's death. Despite Fisto's own power and skill, he simply wasn't able to compete with Sidious. However, Fisto managed to last longer than his fellow combatants, Agen Kolar and Saesee Tiin, being able to block several of Sidious' vicious blows before falling.
