Jeedi Skum was a Jedi Knight during the time of the Hidden War between Rovaniss' Sith EMpire and Harash Soru's Jedi Order. Initially Jeedi was adopted by a female Trandoshan on Tatooine after she found the young boy in the wreckage of a looted house. The Trandoshan named the boy Jeedi and gave him her surname of Skum as a play on words.
Jeedai became a skilled pilot and eventually left his Trandoshan mother after she was killed on a raid. He was discoveded by Master Goruq Da who took Jeedi in and began his training as a Jedi Knight.
