Ky Narec was a male human Jedi Knight who served as Asajj Ventress's Jedi Master before his death. He was killed during a battle with Weequay raiders, causing Asajj great distress and starting her on her path to the dark side.
A human male, Ky Narec became a member of the Jedi Order some time before the galactic conflict known as the Clone Wars broke out. After becoming a Jedi Knight, Narec became stranded on the planet Rattatak and, during one encounter with Weequay raiders, witnessed a young Force-sensitive Dathomirian girl named Asajj Ventress use the Force to throw one of the raiders. Narec took Ventress under his wing and trained her in the ways of the Jedi.The two Jedi, now Master and apprentice, remained on Rattatak for the next ten years, aiding its people and being regarded as heroes by most. During another attack by Weequay raiders, Narec was shot in the back with a sniper rifle and died in Ventress's arms. Enraged by her Master's death, Ventress took Narec's lightsaber and struck down the sniper in a fit of rage, becoming the first step in her path to the dark side.
