Elzar Mann Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
As a youngling and Padawan within the Jedi Order, Elzar Mann befriends Avar Criss and Stellan Gios. Mann and Criss share a particularly close bond enabling each to know what the other thinking without speaking. When Mann ascends to the rank of Jedi Knight, the pair agree to break off their intimate relationship but remain friends. Mann, Criss, and Gios all remain close friends long after the Padawans ascend to the rank of Jedi Knight.
Curious and exploratory by nature, Elzar Mann enjoys tinkering with the Force and dislikes using the Force the same way twice. His unorthodox, erratic and somewhat unreliable use of the Force contributes to his remaining the rank of Jedi Knight long after most of his cohorts attain the rank of Jedi Master. He develops skills in many Force powers, including several obscure ones.
After the Great Disaster, a large fragment of the Legacy Run vessel hurtles toward a large sun in the Hetzal system and threatens to destroy all lifeforms in the system. Elzar Mann, Avar Criss, and many Jedi combine their powers in the Force to move the fragment. The Jedi save the system. The strain of the effort, however, causes some Jedi to faint or even die in the process.
When the Jedi Council assigns Avar Kriss to investigate the origins of the Great Disaster, she selects Elzar Mann to assist the investigation.
