Background: Torbin was a Force-sensitive human male who served as a Master of the Jedi Order during the High Republic Era. By 148 BBY, he was the Padawan of Jedi Master Indara. That year, he was stationed on the planet Brendok with Indara, the Jedi Sol, and Kelnacca. There, they discovered a coven of witches led by Mother Aniseya who were living in a fortress. The Jedi spied on the coven, and noticed Aniseya’s children, the twin sisters Verosha “Osha” and Mae-ho “Mae” Aniseya, who often wandered outside the fortress.

On the night of the twin’s Rite of Ascension ceremony, where they would become witches, the Jedi interrupted the ritual and entered the courtyard where the ceremony was taking place. After Indara introduced herself and the other Jedi, she stated her concerns about the witches illegally training children to use the Force, which the witches called “the Thread”. The witches responded that they had no children, but the Jedi noticed Osha and Mae and asked them to come out of the crowd. At Sol’s suggestion, Osha asked her mother for permission to be tested and trained as a Jedi. In response, Aniseya used a Thread ability on Torbin. His eyes turned black, and he fell to his knees while struggling to breathe. Aniseya threatened the Jedi, telling them she would not return Torbin to his right mind unless the Jedi left. However, after Osha and Indara persuaded her, she reluctantly agreed to allow her children to be tested, and the Jedi returned to their starship.

The next day, Osha and Mae arrived at the site of the Jedi’s encampment to be tested. While Mae tried to persuade Osha to fail the test on purpose, Torbin spoke with their other mother, Koril. Mae was tested first, and after she completed her testing, she exited the Jedi’s ship, followed by Torbin, who informed Osha they were ready for her. Aboard the ship, Torbin took a blood sample from Osha. When she asked him if all Jedi got a lightsaber, he told her they did, but only after much training. Torbin remained present while Sol and Indara tested Osha, who attempted to fail the test at first, but was persuaded to admit that she did wish to become a Jedi.

That night, Mae started a fire to kill Osha to prevent her from becoming a Jedi. Sol rescued Osha, but the rest of the witches were killed. Mae was also believed to have died in the fire, though she survived. During the incident, Torbin’s face was badly injured. Along with Indara, he was present in the ship’s medical bay along when Osha awoke from her injuries and Sol told her about the fire.

At some point after the mission, Torbin attained the rank of Master. By 142 BBY, Torbin took the Barash Vow to atone for his part in the incident on Brendok. As part of his vow, he entered a levitating meditation and did not speak for over ten years. The Barash Vow created an impenetrable barrier around Torbin, which may have been a side effect of the inner journey he took while meditating.

Sixteen years after the incident on Brendok, in 132 BBY, Mae, now an assassin, began targeting the four Jedi stationed on Brendok to seek revenge and please her master. After killing Indara, Mae found Torbin in the Jedi temple on the planet Olega, where he was still in his levitating state. There, Mae challenged him to attack her, but he remained silent. Mae then attempted to attack him, but he remained unresponsive while his barrier deflected her attacks. After her break in was noticed by other Jedi, she was forced to flee.

Mae later returned to the temple, this time with a vial of Bunta poison, which she had obtained from her accomplice, Qimir. Instead of attacking Torbin, she placed the poison in front of the Jedi. She offered him a choice to either confess his crime to the Jedi High Council, or to drink the poison and receive forgiveness. He finally responded to this, ending his silent meditation, and drinking the poison, killing himself.

After his death, Osha, who was assisting in the investigation into her sister, found Torbin’s body. After closing his eyes, she picked up the empty vial and smelled it, identifying it as Bunta from her homeworld of Brendok. When other Jedi, including Sol and his Padawan, Jecki Lon, entered the room, they were initially suspicious of Osha, but another Jedi, Yord Fandar, confirmed her innocence. After Sol realized that Torbin had taken the posion willingly, Osha informed the group of the poison’s identity. Shortly after, Osha told Sol that Mae was targeting the four Jedi who had been stationed on Brendok.

Later, in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, Jedi Master Vernestra Rwoh convened a small council to discuss Mae and the Jedi she was targeting. During the meeting, which Sol attended, holograms of Torbin, Kelnacca, and Indara were shown. The holograms of Torbin and Indara, who had been killed, turned red. A team then traveled to the planet Khofar to extract Kelnacca from his post. There, Lon encountered Mae, and attempted to arrest her for the murders of Torbin, Indara, and Kelnacca, who had also been killed, but she was unsuccessful.
