Dass Jennir Respect Thread [Updated 5/12/19]

"Know this -- pride is motivated by fear -- fear of what others think of you. When you allow another's opinion of you to control your actions rather than doing what you know to be right, then you are truly a slave."

Dass Jennir is a pretty obscure Jedi that survived Order 66 and isn't in any real way connected to other major characters. Jennir was stationed on the planet New Plympto and was fighting against the Separatist supporters Nosaurians, but eventually would join up with them after being betrayed by his clone troopers and Emperor Palpatine. Jennir would join with Bomo Greenbark and leave the planet in the ship Uhumele, where the two would join with Captain Schurk-Heren's smuggling crew and run with them for a while. Along the way, Jennir helped Bomo find his family but was too late to save his daughter, killing the man who had murdered and ate her but ultimately betraying Bomo by not letting him have his revenge. He would then part ways with the crew and take on a job for Ember Chankeli on Cato Nemodia, eventually developing feelings for her despite trying to live his life by the Jedi Code and help others when needed.
