Forgotten Class: Rosh Penin


Now it's time to move on from Luke's first wave of students and start to determine who came afterwards to the academy, perhaps even as early as the second wave of recruits to join.


I should place a special disclaimer in that I have no evidence of any of this being official, yet rather an educated guess on other potential Force users who went through training in the early days of the academy.


The first one I'm going to mention of Rosh Penin.


Rosh was trained by Kyle Kartarn in the early days of the Academy. His first introduction came from the video game Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy


In the story, Rosh is portrayed as arrogant and impatient. He believed Katarn was holding him back from his true potential and eventually left the Academy to study abroad. He was captured by Dark Force users who used his fear to turn him to the Dark Side.


Thankfully his former students were able to convert him back to the Light Side of the Force in the end, saving him from a terrible fate. Rosh was also fortunate enough to be mentioned in Paul S Kemp's novel Riptide.

Wow. You're right. Haha! Rosh Penin is Max Goof. I used to watch the dubbed cutscenes of Jedi Academy that were on Youtube about 12 years ago. Most of them were making fun of Rosh and they were hilarious.
