human Jedi Knight serving the Jedi Order on the planet Tython during the Cold War between the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. Charged with the protection of the training grounds in Tython's Gnarls region, Weller was charged with receiving new Padawans upon their arrival to Tython at the Masters' Retreat. However, his duties were interrupted in 3643 BBY when Tython's native Flesh Raiders launched an attack on the training grounds. Left with little choice due to lack of available defenders, Weller had to order a just–arrived apprentice into battle against the Flesh Raiders. Weller himself joined the fight to defend the training grounds after informing the Jedi Council of the situation, but he suffered a blaster wound to the leg while defending several padawans from a Flesh Raider. The injury proved to be non-fatal and he was quickly evacuated to a nearby medcenter.
