Traits

Vos is a Jedi Master, hailing originally from the planet Kiffu. He has long, dreadlock-like hair and a band of pale yellow across his upper face. He has the power of psychometry, which allows him to read "memories" from inanimate objects through physical contact. He was a student under Qui-Gon Jinn for a time. Quinlan finished his training as a Jedi under Jedi Master Tholme. He later trained Aayla Secura as his own Padawan.

Quinlan has a long history of struggle with the dark side of the Force, particularly after sustaining permanent amnesia after a drug overdose administered by an enemy. When Quinlan was young, his parents were killed by the vampiric Anzati. Later, on the planet Kiffex, Secura became entranced by an ancient Anzati Dark Jedi. Aided by Master Tholme, Quinlan amassed a network of spy contacts within the Separatist movement. Quinlan's network, however, failed to provide any advance warning of the trap on Geonosis, and Vos was ashamed of his failure to save so many Jedi at the start of the Clone Wars. Aayla, thinking that her former master turned to the dark side, decided to search for him. However, Master Tholme would not allow it, for he knew it would foil their plan of secrecy.

Name

The name "Quinlan" is an anglicised form of the Irish name Caoindealbháin, which is both an Irish male first name and a surname. Its compounds are caoin - denoting beauty, gracefulness - and dealbh, meaning form or shape. Quinlan can therefore be taken to denote "fitness","free spirited" and "strength" in the context of "well-shaped" and "athletic". The initial compound of the anglicised form, quin, is derived from the ancient Gaelic personal name, Conn (hence surnames such as Quinn). However Conn and caoin are not synonomus; the former is a name, the latter a descriptive term. While not a common first name these days, it is still a popular surname since the Quinlan family line still continues, especially in Cork, Tipperary, Limerick and Waterford, though they may be two or more unrelated families bearing the same or similar name. His surname "Vos" means "Fox" in Dutch or Flemish. Since in German, Dutch or Flemish fairytales the fox is always a cunning but somehow shady character whose loyalties are seldom clear, it is quite safe to assume that this surname was chosen for a reason. A family name, or surname, is that part of a persons name that indicates to what family he or she belongs. ... This article is about the modern Goidelic language. ...

Character history

Pre Clone Wars

Around the time of the Battle of Naboo (circa The Phantom Menace), Quinlan was on an undercover mission on Tatooine. He saw Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn at Mos Espa.

Clone Wars

Quinlan played a major part in the Clone Wars by infiltrating Count Dooku's Inner Circle and giving information to the Jedi. Dooku eventually led him to the dark side by revealing to him that his great-aunt had betrayed his parents to the Anzati. Quinlan killed his great-aunt on his homeworld, and was accepted fully into Dooku's command and shortly worked as a triple agent against the Republic. He assassinated a corrupt Republic Senator, Viento, on the belief he was Sith, and battled K'Kruhk, injuring him in the process. In the end, however, it turned out that Vos had been loyal to the Republic all along, although in order to completely infiltrate Dooku's Inner Circle he had to fool even those on the Republic's side into thinking that he was allied with Dooku, and committed many evil deeds in the process. During the Battle of Saleucami, Quinlan revealed his true loyalties, overcoming Dooku's temptations to truly turn him to the dark side and killing the Dark Jedi Sora Bulq. He believed that Darth Maul and Dooku were apprentices to the true Dark Lord of the Sith, and it was this Sith Lord who was responsible for the Clone Wars. He believed that if he could uncover the identity of this Sith Lord and kill him, he could end the war and atone for his misdeeds.

Shortly afterward, Quinlan's lover Khaleen Hentz told him that she was pregnant. Quinlan told Khaleen to go to the far edges of the galaxy where she and their unborn child would be safe, and promised that once the Clone Wars were over he would leave the Jedi Order and find her. This revelation sets up the possibility of a powerfully Force sensitive offspring. Khaleen Hentz was the lover of the Kiffar Jedi, Quinlan Vos. ...

Quinlan Vos with his lover Khaleen Hentz

Returning to the Republic, Quinlan was given command of a battalion of Clone troopers, and moved his troops to Boz Pity. This is mentioned by Obi-Wan Kenobi in Revenge of the Sith when news of the events concerning the Clone Wars is heard at the Jedi Temple. In the comic book novelization of Episode III, Quinlan is on Kashyyyk riding on top of a Clone Turbo Tank when Palpatine issues Order 66 to the Clone troopers throughout the galaxy, causing them to turn on their Jedi Generals. Another tank fires at the one Quinlan is riding on, and he is presumed to be killed in the fire.

Quinlan Vos escaped into the woods of Kashyyyk, eluding the clone troopers. He clung to his training as a Jedi through his pain, using lessons taught by Yoda, Mace Windu, and Count Dooku to overcome his clone opponents. He was eventually tracked by Captain Fei, who told Quinlan that if he didn't come out of hiding, Fei would call in an airstrike and kill himself, Quinlan, and the neighboring Wookiee village. Quinlan made up his mind that he could not run and hide, and that he would never track down the second Sith Lord. His destiny was to stop Fei and protect the innocent Wookiees. It was rumored that Quinlan jumped from his perch, lightsaber in hand, and Fei shot him in the stomach with his blaster rifle. (This was never confirmed by George Lucas, however.)

Another story is that Villie soon came looking for Quinlan and found him on the ground, the dead Fei a few feet away. Soon after this, a squad of clone troopers came through the woods, and found Villie apparently burning Quinlan's body. Villie claimed to have killed the Jedi himself, though the body was actually that of Fei. As the clone troopers left, Villie muttered under his breath, "All debts paid, Jedi."


Still another story says that when Vos attacked Fei, he was killed by the clone commander himself. Vos cut Fei's gun in half, but Fei bested him in hand to hand combat, breaking Vos' back. He then killed him with a vibro-knife.


In a cave on Kashyyyk, Khaleen and her baby had met up with Jedi Masters Tholme and T'ra Saa, along with some Wookiees. Khaleen was watching a holocube from Vos, explaining his feelings for her, when suddenly he walked in, and told her himself. She had feared that he was dead, as had they all, but due to Villie's trickery Quinlan had snuck off-planet and been healed. Khaleen falls into his arms, then presents their child, Korto, to Quinlan. Quinlan paints the child's face with the same markings as his own, and proclaims to the baby that he will be raised in the Light, and the Darkness will never touch him.

Ghost

Quinlan Vos briefly appeared in the comic book Ghost, which took place about 10 years before the Battle of Yavin. A teenage Han Solo met Quinlan while looking for a map. Just then, bounty hunters appeared, and Han was pushed into a Sarlaac. Quinlan used his Force powers to rescue him. Vos looked considerably older and war-scarred when Han encountered him.

This encounter, however, may or may not be canonical as the Tales series was considered part of the Infinities line of What-If style stories. That said, the events at the end of the Republic series cast doubt on it being non-canonical.


Vos in the Star Wars TV series?

Lucas himself instructed the writers of the Star Wars: Republic comic book series not to kill off the Quinlan Vos character. Since then, Lucas' instructions have fueled rumours that Vos may appear as a minor character in the Star Wars live-action TV series, but they are still to be confirmed.


Lucas had originally written a scene for Revenge of the Sith involving Vos, but ultimately, he only received a passing mention, from Obi-Wan Kenobi, in the film. The fact that George Lucas had written a scene including Quinlan Vos is enough to fuel speculation that the character maybe one of the future Star Wars television series main or minor characters. Since Lucas did not want him to be killed, it can be implied that he has some plans for the controversial Jedi Master in regard to the upcoming TV series.
