Bio: Most Star Wars fans will only recognize this Jedi Master by his appearance rather than name. When seen sitting on the Jedi Council he is the one with the tall slender neck; topped off by a bulbous head.
Though his appearance may be comical to most, his close friends and past enemies know a different story. Poof, a sly and mysterious Jedi, was a master at the most advanced Jedi mind tricks. During a fight he would rarely use a lightsaber as his natural born telepathy allowed him to utterly confuse and mislead any enemy by placing disturbing (or simply distracting) images in their minds. His Padawan, Roron Corobb was greatly trained in Poof's art and Corobb became a great Jedi. The sly Master Yarael Poof could also make objects explode.
Though he rarely needed to use a lightsaber, he still carried one and, if need of it arose, he was a dangerous opponent. This might be due in part to the additional pair of arms concealed beneath his robes. Something else viewers don't see on screen is that Poof sported two brains; one in his head and the other was in his chest cavity.
Master Poof died 27 years before the Battle of Yavin. He gave his life saving Coruscant from a band of terrorists who had secured a weapon powerful enough to destroy the entire planet. In this, his final battle, he was aided by the bounty hunters Jango Fett and Zam Wesell. He died a hero, and his body was burned on a traditional Jedi funeral pyre. His fellow Jedi deeply mourned his loss.This entry uses material provided in part or in the main by wikipedia.org.
