"One of the senior members of the Jedi Council, Master Jaric Kaedan was born in the Outer Rim and, although he wasn’t discovered by the Jedi until he was twelve, quickly rose in prominence. During the war, Master Jaric Kaedan joined the Republic forces fighting on the front lines and was involved in several notable military actions, including the battles on Rhen Var and the capture of the Dread Masters. He remains the council member with the closest ties to the Republic military. To his students, Master Jaric Kaedan is a harsh taskmaster, driven by the knowledge that his lessons may one day save their lives. He believes that the greatest threats to a Jedi can come from within, and encourages his students to master themselves before they seek mastery over a lightsaber. To the Sith, he is known as a formidable enemy, firm in his conviction that there can never be peace while the Empire still exists."
―In-game Codex (Persons of Note)[src]

Jaric Kaedan was a Human male Jedi Master who served the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic during the Great Galactic War against the resurgent Sith Empire. Also known as the Order's Watchman, Kaedan was born in the Outer Rim Territories in the decades before the war and taken in for training by the Jedi at the age of twelve, becoming a Jedi Knight under the tutelage of Ngani Zho. Serving valiantly on battlefields across the galaxy during the war, Kaedan was instrumental in the capture the Sith Lords known as the Dread Masters in 3,668 BBY, and as a Jedi Master he fought in the Battle of Rhen Var in the last months of the war. When the Treaty of Coruscant brought the war to a close in 3,653 BBY, Kaedan was appointed to the Jedi High Council in the subsequent Cold War and accompanied the rest of Order to their recently rediscovered homeworld of Tython. Training a Sullustan Padawan by the name of Nae Nuuv to Knighthood, Kaedan remained ever-vigilant against the threat of the Sith, and he joined the Republic Military in combating the Empire on Ilum in 3,641 BBY after war broke out. Leading a contingent to reclaim the Jedi Temple on the Order's sacred world, Kaedan was killed by a Sith strike team during the Battle of Ilum.
