Shaela Nuur was a female HumanJedi Knight who served the Jedi Order during and after the Great Sith War. Following the war, Shaela - along with fellow Jedi Knights Guun Han Saresh and Duron Qel-Droma - joined forces as a team hunting Force-sensitiveTerentateks during the Great Hunt. Once the Great Hunt was declared over, their team was dispatched to the world of Korriban to hunt down a rumoured Terentatek that was still on the ancient Sith world. However, before that mission could be completed Saresh would part ways from Nuur and Qel-Droma, largely over the two's both budding and forbidden romance. As a result, the two would go to Korriban alone where Qel-Droma would be killed and Shaela - who pursued the terentatek that killed Qel-Droma - would also be killed by the same beast after the Solari lightsabercrystal within her lightsaber would fail. The crystal, which can only operate while its user is attuned to the light side of the Force, could no longer work as Nuur had fallen from the light when Qel-Droma fell to the beast.
