As chief librarian in the Jedi Archives on Coruscant, Jocasta Nu's confidence in the data contained in the archives was complete. When Obi-Wan is unable to find the planet Kamino in the records, she asserts that the planet simply doesn't exist.
Unwilling to tell her master, Anakin Skywalker, that her lightsaber had been stolen, Ahsoka seeks aid from Jocasta Nu in the Jedi Archives. Nu introduces her to the ancient Jedi Master, Tera Sinube, who has an extensive knowledge of the Coruscant underworld.
When Ahsoka is taken off active duty and charged with guarding the Jedi Archives, Jocasta Nu shows her the entrance to one of the most restricted areas of the temple: The Holocron Vault.
To help him infiltrate the Jedi Temple, Cad Bane hired a Clawdite shape-shifter to impersonate a recently-deceased Jedi Master. When Jocasta Nu becomes suspicious of the imposter's activities, he quickly knocks her unconscious.
Holocrons are ancient repositories of knowledge and wisdom that can only be accessed by those skilled in the Force. Both Jedi and Sith use them to record and preserve their teachings, creating a record for future generations seeking to understand the mysteries of the Force. During the time of the Republic, countless holocrons were stored on Coruscant; after the Jedi purge, however, they became scarce remnants of an era long gone.
A noble order of protectors unified by their ability to tap into the power of the Force, the Jedi Order were the guardians of peace and justice in the Galactic Republic. The age of the Jedi would end, however, due to a nefarious plot by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious.
A legendary Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi was a noble man and gifted in the ways of the Force. He trained Anakin Skywalker, served as a general in the Republic Army during the Clone Wars, and guided Luke Skywalker as a mentor.
Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars. Alongside Anakin, she grew from headstrong student into a mature leader. But her destiny laid along a different path than the Jedi.
Instantly recognizable by its distinctive crown of five spires, the Jedi Temple was the home of the Jedi Order on Coruscant. Part school and part monastery, the Jedi Temple was the central hub for all Jedi activities in the galaxy. When Supreme Chancellor Palpatine enacted Order 66, clone troops led by the newly risen Darth Vader attacked the temple, massacring its inhabitants and leaving the structure badly damaged. With the Empire triumphant, the Jedi Temple’s spires still rose into the Coruscant skies. But the building was now the Imperial Palace, home to the Sith Lord who had destroyed the Jedi.
Purged from the otherwise complete Jedi Archives is all evidence of the mysterious world of Kamino. A lonely world beyond the Outer Rim and just south of the Rishi Maze, few could have predicted that Kamino would become a key contributor to a massive shift in political power in the final days of the Republic. Kamino is a planet of endless oceans and storms. Few features mark its surface, save for massive stilt-mounted cities wherein reside the planet's natural inhabitants, the Kaminoans. From Tipoca City, the planet's Prime Minister rules. Lama Su closely monitored the operations of Kamino's most prized export: clones.
