Dro Plund was a Kel Dorian Jedi Master. He was the second person to reach Jedi Knight within the Kalway Order of Jedi. Later in his life, he attained the rank of Council Master and Lead Sentinel.
Dro was a native-born on the planet Dorin in 200 ABY. Dro was abandoned after his birth to a local orphanage. At the age of 10, the elders of the Baran Do took him into their custody. For the next ten years, Dro was a part of the Baran Do, learning the ways of the Force through them. The Baran Do sought out the fate of Dro's parents and found that they had both been killed while Bounty Hunting. Dro was a social Kel Dor and was held in high regard by his peers.
Dro was sent by the Baran Do to find a Jedi Order. The Baran Do taught him a powerful force illusion trick to use on himself, and for a while, he appeared as a redhead human male. Dro eventually arrived on Coruscant, where he visited the local Jedi Order. Dro's black and white nature was not suited to an Order on a City planet with all the undue suffering. Dro heard of an order on Yavin IV and headed there. Upon arriving, He found the Kalway Order of the Jedi; they had recently migrated to Yavin and sought members.
Dro Plund decided to apply for KOJ after he settled down on the planet. He was accepted into the order, and Master Moonsoo took him on as her apprentice. She said he had great potential and would do well.
Dro excelled as a padawan achieving good results and marks; during this time, Dro uncovered that he was a good pilot and a good Sentinel. Dro was confident in his piloting abilities; they were attacked by a rogue ship during his second day of training with his Flight Instructor. The rogue ship incapacitated Dro's Flight Instructors ship, forcing Dro to take defensive action to save his Flight Instructor.
A few days later, on Yavin, while cleaning the medbay, he felt a great disturbance in the Force and ran to find Master Luvbutton Moonsoo. He told her about what he had felt. They went and searched all over Yavin looking for this injured person; they found him amongst the ruins of the old temple, he was half dead. Master Moonsoo ran back to get a stretcher, while Dro spoke to the injured man as he tried his best to heal him. The injured man recovered and thanked Dro for healing him.
A month later, Dro and fellow padawan Moy were on a mission accompanied by Master Moonsoo. During this mission, Himself, Master Moonsoo and Moy had to defend their cargo ship from being boarded by 3 unknown pirates. The pirates successfully board but were fought off by the Jedi, luring them into traps and using their skills to defeat the unknown pirates. All three of the pirates were fought off the ship and retreated; they continued on their way to Ruusan and managed to make it with all the equipment they had to deliver.
Dro Plund was Knighted alongside Moy Borsuk in the first Knighting Ceremony of the Kalway Order of Jedi. During this Knighting Ceremony Dro was given Golden Wings, Silver Wings and a Flight certificate. Dro's heroic actions in saving his Flight Instructor, and overall high achieving in Star Fighter Training led to him being named one of the first Ace's of the Kalway Order Of Jedi.
Dro and Moy went on to form the Knights Council to discuss issues and report them back to the Jedi Council. As more padawans were Knighted, the Knights Council grew. It further helped the Order deal with the consistent attacks it underwent from different Sith groups.
During his time as a Knight, Starbase Omega accused him of stealing a bomb from their Space Station and would put a bounty out on him. Dro maintained his innocence, however to further prove he would hand himself in so that Justice would prevail. Unbeknowest to Dro, he was followed by two individuals claiming to be Republic Knights. These republic knights would knock him unconscious and break him out. During this time Master Kunta Scribe of the Republic Knights would force painful images into Dro's mind of betrayal from KOJ and unloyalty of KOJ.
Starbase Omega would eventually drop the charges, although they did try to charge him with breaking out. The images casted in Dro's mind made him undergo a lot of confusion as a Knight. He was told by the Masters of the order that he was overly aggressive and quick to jump at the sith.
Dro had taken on padawans, Conrad, Elli and Bo'relli. Dro trained Conrad to Jedi Knight, Padawan Elli unfortunately left the order. Bo'relli was taken on, however Dro departed from KOJ, leaving Bo'relli masterless.
The images and forced nightmares became too much for Dro Plund. After a few months, he left the order believing it had been disloyal to him and the Jedi Way. Soon after leaving, he found Master Kunta Scribe, who accepted him into Republic Knights and promoted Dro to Master. Dro's time in Republic Knights was short as the Grand Master of the order was killed shortly after joining. Dro learnt that the Order's teaching was the Grey Jedi, a teaching that Dro fundamentally disagreed with. With the death of Grand Master Scribe and the relevation of the teaching Dro moved to disband the order shortly after this, with Magnus who he had taken on as a Padawan becoming a grey knight.
Corellian Jedi Order
After a few months of roaming around, Dro stumbled upon the Corellian Jedi Order. He applied to join and was accepted in as a Jedi Master. The order was small, but Dro liked it; he took on a padawan who was simply known as "Baby" he never knew why she was named this. Dro stayed within this order for months, but in truth, he was missing KOJ.
So Dro went back to Yavin, where he saw a petite redhead Jedi grand Master recruiting Jedi to her order. He looked into it and saw that it was based on the planet of Aurilia. He had never heard of this planet but went with her. It was here where Dro got one of his most promising students. He taught her and was impressed with her; however, she disappeared for a few months. Dro was worried; he searched everywhere, looking to find his most promising student, but he gave up. The Jedi Order of Aurilia fell through, and Dro returned his attention back to the Corellia Jedi Order. The CJO decided it would go through a name change and changed into the White Moon Jedi Academy. Dro still missing the old days of being in KOJ. He then decided to reapply for it.
Return to KOJ
"Sometimes being a defender means you need to attack first if its in the best interest of the greater population and safety of them."
— Sir Dro
Dro returned to KOJ on one condition that he return as a Jedi Knight. With a cheerful heart, he did this. Coming back into KOJ he learnt of the demise of an old friend of his. He was sad at this but quickly found joy in seeing some of the people she taught and them teaching others. Dro also learned that his old padawan Borelli had turned to the Darkside; this shook Dro into disliking Human Jedi teaching alien padawans. Dro then took on a human Jedi padawan named Ken. Although Dro did not fully train Ken he trained Ken for the last two stages of being a padawan before making Knight. After Ken, he made a pact with a fellow Knight to try to teach all the alien padawans. With this, he took on the alien adept of Krelith. Dro would spend hours and hours ensuring that his padawan stayed on the right track to becoming a Jedi knight. After months of work. Krelith was ready; he had excelled every trial he was given. Dro watched as Krelith was his fourth padawan ever to make Knight. Within the same Ceremony, the council summoned Dro forwarded and Mastered him.
Kalway Order of the Jedi Master
For a few months after Krelith made Knight, Dro did not take on a padawan; instead, he began to instruct padawans in the ways of the Force without taking one on as a padawan. However, he came across a male padawan he saw potential in and took him as his padawan; that padawan was Kronantus Jokar. Dro spent heaps of time with Kronantus, as he taught him the ways of the Jedi; eventually, it came time to Knight Kronantus, and Master Dro did; he was happy; this was the 5th padawan that he had knighted.
Soon after, major conflict broke out among the Kel Dorian people. Master Dro Plund was assigned by the Jedi council to go and bring peace back to his homeworld.
Kalway Order of Jedi Council Master
"You've been around longer than me Master Dro so I can give you this question with the understanding you have the wisdom to at least grasp it. Do you ever question if its all still worth it? How many times do we have to lay it on the line only for the entire galaxy to turn against us when they feel its right? We've bled the same blood in the same mud defending this moon from Obsidian Dominion and the like. The dangers of the darkside have been shown time and time again and yet we still lose ground, people and governments still side with those would destroy what keeps the galaxy whole. Nev'la and Rhaaka died out of sight of the rest of the galaxy but the weight of their sacrifice was heavy. Is it still heavy even if I am the only one who feels it? Maybe the only one who really cares?"
— Sha'ira Luroon
"I do question it. Then I look back at our teachings, and realise, that while the whole galaxy may be against us, we do this for the Force and for the galaxy. We don't do it for popularity polls, opinion polls or the fashion of the time. We do it, so that the galaxy is a better place, for the next generation of young people. For the friends in the galaxy, we have made, who will have kids. So that those kids can have a future, of democracy and hope. I have lost, many friends. My dearest friend Sir Moy, is missing, presumed dead. Other friends of mine, have made sacrifices the same as Nev'la and Rhaaka, however, the galaxy won't know. The galaxy, is somewhat better off not knowing. We as jedi do not seek the limelight and praise of others. The Jedi are the heros that the Galaxy deserves, but not always wants."
