Deesra Luur Jada was a green-skinned, Twi'lek Jedi Knight during the time of Darth Malak's war of the Star Forge. Deesra spent most of his time at the Jedi training compound on Dantooine and was somewhat of an expert in galactic zoology. When the memory wiped Jedi, Revan, returned to Dantooine to re-learn his Jedi training and to search for the Star Forge, Deesra had the opportunity to spend a few moments with Revan and his companions.
There, Deesra recited the tale of the Great Hunt, in which the Jedi Knights Duron Qel-Droma, Guun Har Saresh, and Shaela Nur were given the task of hunting down the dangerous terentateks. Unfortunately, the Jedi academy on Dantooine was targeted by Darth Malak who attacked the academy from space with a planetary bombardment from his capital ship. The academy was destroyed and many of its inhabitants were killed. It is unknown if Deesra Luur Jada was one of those Jedi killed that day.
