Non-UPC InfoEdit

Nichos Aplina was a Male Human Alderaanian Master in the Jedi Order. He was a member of the Jedi High Council for a time, replacing Even Piell after he stepped down, holding one of the 12 highest postions in the Order. He was later replaced by Piell following Aplina's death. He was also the treasurer of the Skilled Swordsman, his primary weapon being a blue-bladed lightsaber. He was trained by Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn just previous to Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was a good friend of his. Aplina also trained Tonje Stewt to knighthood, and was training Jedi Padawan Keni Sten up until both of their deaths. He served in the Clone Wars as the High Jedi General of the 617th Attack Battalion of the Grand Army of the Republic. Aplina was the mentor to Roman demigod Frank Zhang in the area of lightsaber combat. Aplina was killed by Savage Opress in 2012. He and his padawan, Keni Sten, were sent on a mission with Tonje Stewt and his padawan, Ajin Lilian, to defeat the dangerous Dark Force user. He and Sten engaged in combat with him while Stewt and Lilian led a portion of the 617th Attack Battalion against a group of mercenaries that Opress had hired to work for him. Aplina died saving Keni Sten's life, though it was futile, for Keni Sten was soon killed afterwards, also struck down by Savage Opress's blade. Stewt and Lilian tried to intervene, but were too late, and were killed by Opress after dueling him to try to avenge Stewt's former mentor. The clone troopers of the 617th Attack Battalion, led by Commander Juto and Lieutenant Alden, defeated the mercenaries, but were slaughtered afterwards by Opress. Aplina was the first member of the UPC to be killed, and one of the only five, which only included him, his padawan, his Clone Commander, and his and his padawan's astromech units.
