Vhiran Ashukahwa was a male Bodisei Jedi Knight who lived during the latter years of the Galactic Republic and rise of the Galactic Empire. After receiving the rank of Jedi Knight, he became a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Ashukahwa fought in various battles against the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars, often alongside the ARC Trooper team Alpha Squad, which he commanded. When Order 66 came down at the end of the Clone Wars, Vhiran and several Jedi fled Coruscant and hid on Zaloriis to discuss the future. Following an Imperial attack on Zaloriis,Vhiran traveled from planet to planet with Jedi Knight Bultar Swan and Padawan Shamila to stay out of the hands of the Empire. During this time on the run they helped plant the seeds for resistance against the Empire. After the the Conclave of Kessel, where he witnessed the killing of Bultar and nearly died himself, Vhiran would eventually find himself on Dantooine with the help of the ancient former Jedi Tha’ci, where the two intended to clone Swan and bring her back to life.
