Background: K’Kruhk was a male Whiphid Jedi Master who lived from around the end of the Galactic Republic to the time of the One Sith and the Second Imperial Civil War as a member of the New Jedi Order. An apprentice of Lilit Twoseas, K’Kruhk survived his Master’s death during the Yinchorri Uprising and went on to serve with distinction in the Clone Wars. A disastrous loss of life at Teyr led K’Kruhk to question his cause, and he joined a dissident movement on Ruul. Betrayal by one of his own, however, caused him to reaffirm his absolute loyalty to the Republic and the Jedi High Council, and he would go on to serve on Saleucami in the final weeks of the Outer Rim Sieges.
Despite countless brushes with death, K’Kruhk survived both the Clone Wars and the Great Jedi Purge, living to see the demise of the Galactic Empire and the return of the Jedi, albeit while in hiding from the agents of Darth Vader. Only when Luke Skywalker’s New Jedi Order was well-established and the last elements of Palpatine’s Empire destroyed did the Whiphid finally emerge from hiding.
Some period between the events of the Galactic Civil War and the Yuuzhan Vong War, K’Kruhk joined the New Jedi Order and was still active even past the rise of Darth Krayt, serving as a member of the Jedi High Council, and taking a leading role in the Jedi resistance to the ascendant Sith. K’Kruhk’s efforts were integral in forging an alliance between the Jedi, the Galactic Alliance Remnant, and the Fel Empire. With the death of T’ra Saa at Taivas, K’Kruhk became the oldest and most experienced of the surviving Jedi and participated in the alliance’s final assault on the Sith-held Coruscant.
Following the deaths of Darth Krayt and Roan Fel, K’Kruhk became one of the three Triumvirs of the restored Galactic Alliance. During his tenure, K’Kruhk had to contend with both Empress Fel’s ambitious G51 communications array project and the threat posed by an underground One Sith Order, whose members had infiltrated key government positions across the galaxy. K’Krukh was also concerned by the emergence of the rogue Sith Darth Wredd, who wanted to destroy the One Sith and reinstate the Rule of Two. He was one of the first high-ranking Triumvirate officials to realize that Darth Wredd was pursuing his own independent agenda.
Despite his gentle soul, K’Kruhk was a powerful warrior, his large Whiphid frame giving him an advantage against smaller opponents and his Jedi talents granting him a speed and agility few of his species could match. K’Kruhk’s fighting prowess allowed him to hold his own against Asajj Ventress and General Grievous. Despite being unable to actually defeat them, he was one of the few Jedi who managed to survive an encounter with them. He was also able to hold his own against Quinlan Vos.
K’Kruhk was skilled at using the Force to heal wounds, not just his own, but also the injuries of others, as proven when he healed Chase Piru. He also attempted to use this ability to save Oppo Rancisis, but failed. In addition, K’Kruhk possessed an incredibly powerful Force Sense, as he was the only known Jedi besides Yoda who was able to sense the intention of the clone troopers during Order 66. Further evidence of his exceptional Force Sense was his ability to detect Quinlan Vos, who was skilled at hiding his presence even from other Force users.
K’Kruhk’s most remarkable talent was that of survival. Thanks to both the natural fortitude and inborn “healing trance” of his kind, he was able to survive injuries that in any other Jedi might prove fatal. Left for dead on battlefields as diverse as Teyr, Hypori, and Ossus, K’Kruhk was remarkable for his ability to live to see another day. Even a fall from the heights of Coruscant was unable to end the mighty Whiphid’s life, nor could the complete destruction of the Ossus temple by the new Sith Order.
