Background: Bode Akuna was a Force-sensitive human male mercenary and gunslinger, and was once a Jedi Knight of the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars, in which he was assigned to Republic Intelligence operations by the Jedi High Council. Akuna worked with Lank Denvik, who served as a mentor to him. With the advent of the Great Jedi Purge, Akuna abandoned his Jedi teachings, becoming a mercenary and freelance gunslinger.

At one point during the Imperial Era, he married and started a family with a woman named Tayala, whom he settled down with on the planet Birren, and together had a daughter they named Kata Akuna. However, he later lost his wife to the Inquisitorius and managed to escape with his daughter. After being on the run for so long, Akuna reluctantly cut a deal with ex-colleague Lank Denvik—now a chief supervisor within the Imperial Security Bureau—who questioned the Inquisitorius’ capabilities. Akuna—whom Denvik saw as a useful weapon that exceeded the Inquisitorius—would work for Denvik in exchange for protecting Kata and himself from the Inquisitorius.

During the Stinger Mantis crew’s crusade against the Empire, Akuna would infiltrate and become an “ally” to Jedi survivor Cal Kestis, who was unaware of his true nature. Akuna would hide his Jedi past from Kestis. Despite this duplicity, Akuna came considering Kestis his best friend. Akuna considered defecting from the ISB when Kestis began his hunt for the hidden planet Tanalorr, believing it could be provide a new refuge for him and his daughter. However, Kestis soon decided to share the location of Tanalorr with the Hidden Path, reducing the planet’s secrecy and creating a chance for the Empire to discover the world as well. Desperate to keep his daughter safe, Akuna betrayed Kestis by anonymously tipping off the Inquistorious to the location of the Path safehouse on Jedha, stealing the Abyss compass necessary for safely navigating to Tanalorr during the subsequent attack. He then lured Kestis to Denvik’s headquarters, so that the Jedi would take out the base and inadvertently destroy any trace of Akuna’s survival. Fleeing to Tanalorr with his daughter, Akuna was pursued by Kestis and the crew of the Stinger Mantis. In the end, Akuna was killed by Kestis during their duel on Tanalorr.

Bode was quite powerful and skilled with the Force, proficient with telekinesis, able to make use of it in various ways with little effort, such as lifting, push, choke, or pull objects. He even had the strength to force-choke the likes of Cal and Merrin, with Cal requiring considerable effort to break out of his attack, and easily force-pushed Cal when he was off-guard. Bode was also proficient in using the Force to enhance his physical abilities, using dashes of Force enhanced speed to surprise Cal in their fights and amplifying his strength to perform various unblockable attacks that caused shockwaves upon hitting the ground on several occasions. Despite being Force-sensitive, Bode was able to conceal his connection to the Force to the point where even a Jedi Master couldn’t sense it.

Bode displayed a degree of proficiency in lightsaber combat, preferring the aggressive, brutal style of Form V that complemented his muscular build, but the need to hide his Jedi heritage had made his skills rusty, causing him to instead combine the expert marksmanship and unarmed combat skills he gained as a mercenary with his lightsaber combat, which made him a deadly opponent, masterfully wielding a fluid fighting style that could overcome most advesaries. He defeated Cal Kestis in their first duel due to Cal being emotionally distracted and caught by surprise over Bode’s true nature as a Jedi survivor, and even held his own against Cal and Merrin on Tanalorr for quite some time, but was ultimately defeated by Cal in a one-on-one lightsaber combat.

Having served in Republic Intelligence during the Clone Wars, Bode was highly skilled in espionage, surveillance, and tracking, utilizing these skills to hide his daughter from his enemies and keep his true identity as a former Jedi hidden. He was also a skilled actor and manipulator, changing his personality to suit his target
