Affiliations: The Jedi
The niece of the famed Admiral Ackbar, Cilghal becomes one of Luke Skywalker's first students in his fledgling New Jedi Order. Starting out as a simple ambassador, Cilghal discovers her talent for healing while training on Yavin 4. She proves instrumental in saving the life of New Republic Chief-of-State Mon Mothma, who is possessed by the Dark Side Spirit of Exar Kun. Upon graduation from the Jedi Academy, Cilghal follows in her uncle's footsteps and drifts into politics, becoming the Mon Calamari Senator for The New Republic. Years later, she returns to the academy and resumes her duties as a Jedi Knight, becoming an instructor and taking on a Chadra-Fan apprentice named Tekli.
When the Yuuzhan Vong sweep through the galaxy, Cilghal's skills as a healer are in great demand. She eventually becomes the obstetrician and midwife to Mara Jade Skywalker and a loyal friend to that family, in addition to being a dedicated Jedi Master.
Cilghal has a noble and gentle spirit. Although trained in the Lightsaber and more than willing to use it in defense of the injured and helpless, Cilghal prefers using her skills as a diplomat and healer to serve the will of The Force. Her combination of medical knowledge and Force Powers means that there are few ailments or injuries that she cannot cure.
Cilghal Encounters Edit
Depending on the time period, Cilghal is commonly found at the Jedi Academy on Yavin 4 or in the New Republic Senate. She travels extensively with both Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade and could be encountered alongside them or performing some mission on their behalf. If one of the heroes becomes poisoned or contracts a supposedly incurable disease, they might seek out Cilghal, based on her reputation as an amazing healer.
