The grand master of the Jedi order for over a few centuries. Master Yoda lead the Jedi knights during the Clone Wars, where he would see the slow demise of the order he once held so dear.
Tasked with both serving as a general in the war, and training Jedi, Yoda would do his best to uphold the very principles of the Jedi Code. Serving as diplomat and peace keeper first, and warrior last. But when it came down to it, he would ignite his blade and take to the battle field along side his clone troopers and fellow knights.
He was both strong as he was wise, often guiding young knights down the path of light. And many Jedi would often look up to him both as an inspiration and for guidance. Even if some of his answers were somewhat cryptic in nature. Yet there was always a small layer of understanding in what he taught. Even to other Clones, did Yoda offer his guidance.
When a squad of clones were pinned down and stranded alongside Yoda on a neutral world, their moral took a turn for the worst. The clones knew they were vastly outnumbered and outgunned by a 10 t0 One margin. Yet, Yoda would do his best to calm the worried clones. Offering that they remove their helmets once they found shelter. Though they were reluctant to do so, saying they all had looked the same. Yoda was quick to offer a unique outlook on their claims, thus slowly gaining their trust and rebuilding their morale.
Yoda had a fondness for teaching younglings especially. He knew that the younger generations held the key to the survival of the order, and even lamented on how wonderful the mind of a child could be. Because of this, he was often the most patient with them, offering classes in both the most basic of lightsaber training, and guidance for them to eventually become padawaans to the various knights and masters in the order.
His connection to the force was strong. And perhaps one of the strongest known in the Galaxy aside from Skywalker. And yet even he could not penetrate through the shroud of the Darkside concerning their future. The Clone War clouded the Jedi's judgement for sever years up until it was far too late. And during the Battle of Kashyyyk, Yoda felt a massive surge in the force. The Republic was doomed, and with it the Jedi order was rapidly falling. One by one the Jedi Knights were being executed by their Clone subordinates though Protocol 66.
In a last ditch effort, Master Yoda along with Wookiee generals Tarfful and Chewbacca made a daring run for a specialized pod allowing the master to escape into Space. He met with fellow Master Obi Wan and Senetor Organna to discuss the future of the Order and to uncover the mastermind behind the brutal massacre, only to find the Jedi temple on Coruscant in ruins, and every Jedi inside had been butchered. To make matters worse, the one Jedi they had trusted most was behind the attack, mercissly slaughtering every knight, master, padawaan, and youngling. inside. He knew there was only one chance to stop the Sith from completely wining, and set out to challenge the Sith master, Darth Sidious.
After an intense duel, the fight ended in a stalemate, and Yoda was forced to retreat, where he would live in exile in Degobah for nearly two decades until Luke Skywalker crashed his Xwing on the planet surface. He would once again train one final Jedi in hopes that he would bring an end to the Sith. Shortly after Master Yoda, one of the last of the Jedi Masters passed peacefully in his home.
