3. Wishan, a Duros Jedi Master and Sculptor

Wishan, a male Duros Jedi Master, serves the Jedi Order during the High Republic era. He develops proficiency as a sculpture. The Jedi Master uses the Force to sculpt clay into a variety of objects and forms. Jedi Padawan Jabe Rann observes Wishan sculpting four statues intended as a gift for the Jedi Temple’s librarian.

Although Wishan attempts to teach the Padawan how to sculpt, the Padawan struggles and fails to sculpt Wishan’s likeness in clay as instructed. When Rann notices a Padawan trying to steal some of the sculptures, Rann manages to quickly sculpt a large and fierce krayt dragon out of clay. He successfully scares off the would-be thief, to the bemusement of Wishan.

4. Darth Caldoth, a Powerful Ancient Sith Lord

Darth Caldoth is the only known Duros Sith Lord. According to legend, immediately after taking on Twi’lek Ry Nymbis as his Sith apprentice, Caldoth abandons Nymbis on the forsaken planet Simoth. While there, Nymbis becomes enslaved. The Sith Lord returns to the planet seven years later, finding his apprentice much stronger and angrier than before. Caldoth kills everyone on the planet, slaves and slave masters alike, except for Nymbis. The pair grow in power, eventually become the most powerful individuals in the galaxy. They come to despise each other as well.

When Nymbis plots to encase Caldoth in stone through a Sith stone ritual, Caldoth senses the betrayal and modifies the words of the ritual. As a result, Nymbis inadvertently traps himself in stone instead of Caldoth as intended.

Although the canon audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost (2019) mentions Caldoth, the Sith Lord first appears in the story “Gaze of Stone” inside the short story collection Star Wars: Myths & Fables (2019).
