Saldith was an Ithorian Jedi Knight during the time of the Old Republic, around the time of the Stark Hyperspace War. During the confrontation, Republic forces and the Jedi Knights fell into a trap orchestrated by pirate and spacer Iaco Stark, who infected the navicomputers of Republic ships with a virus making it impossible for them to travel through hyperspace. The Jedi and Republic forces managed to retreat to a remote planet, but were outnumbered and under constant fire from Stark's pirate forces. With no way to communicate with the Jedi Council back on Coruscant, the Jedi across the galaxy were in a dangerous position.
This was where Saldith stepped in. Saldith remained on Coruscant in the Jedi Temple with a very special young Jedi, Sha Koon. Sha was a Kel Dor, and the neice of the great Jedi Master Plo Koon, who was leading the Jedi and Republic forces against Stark. Saldith brought Sha before the Jedi Council where, with their combined effort, manage to communicate with Plo Koon using Sha, and her unique bond she had with her uncle to discuss possible action plans. With the help of Saldith and Sha Koon, the Jedi were eventually able to defeat Stark and his forces, bringing the conflict to an end.
