Cin Drallig was a legendary Jedi Master of the Old Republic during the time of the Clone Wars. Known for his skills in lightsaber comabt, Cin served as an instructor of lightsaber techniques at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. During his tenure as a Jedi Master, Cin Drallig accepted the dark-haired female, Serra Keto as his apprentice. As the apprentice of a Jedi Master with such remarkable lightsaber skills, Serra grew into a formidable fighter herself.
During the Clone Wars, Cin Dralling spent much time on Coruscant training Padawans in lightsaber combat. As the Clone Wars dimished the Jedi ranks and because the galaxy was consumed by war, Jedi with sufficient combat skills were in high demand. When the Sith Lord, Darth Sidious, launched his final attack against the Jedi Knights, Cin Drallig was in the Jedi Temple when Darth Vader invaded. Cutting down every Jedi in his path, Darth Vader eventually confronted Master Dralling. In the halls and chambers of the Jedi Temple two Jedi warriors clashed in a ferocious battle.
Cin Drallig was more than a match for Darth Vader using the Force to enhance his speed as he engaged Vader in his own unique style of lightsaber form. The battle caused much collateral damage to the Jedi Temple destroying statues, crumbling ceilings, the battle even spilled out onto the outer platforms surrounding the structure. Unfortunately, it was not in Master Drallig's destiny to defeat Darth Vader. Empowered with the strength of the Dark Side, Darth Vader was simply too strong for Master Drallig to defeat. Despite his supreme lightsaber skills, Cin Drallig was cut down by Darth Vader and joined the many of his Jedi brethren who became one with the Force that day.
