Appears in Jedi Academy

Jaden Korr is a protagonist in the Jedi Academy video game, a sequel to Jedi Outcast. Being a customizable character, the appearance, species and sex of Jaden can be changed by the Player.


Jaden Korr is a young talented being, born on Coruscant, who was able to construct a personal lightsaber without any knowledge prior to the events of the game. In the starting cutscene Jaden meets Rosh Penin, another Force-sensitive, who is making his way to the Jedi Academy on Yavin IV. The Jedi transport is shot down however and crash-lands in the jungle, where the two Jedi initiates find Imperial Remnant and a strange figure with a scepter completing some ritual near one of the temples.

After these events both Jaden and Rosh begin their Jedi training under Kyle Katarn as their mentor. As they pass the trials, both are sent on various missions, including the ones on Tatooine, Blenjeel, Ord Mantell, Dosuun and many others - all part of the investigation into the Sith Cult of Marka Ragnos. It is later revealed, that the organization is led by Tavion Axmis, a long-time nemesis of Katarn, who wants to resurrect the ancient Sith Lord Marka Ragnos. With the help of her minions Tavion steals the Force power from various notable places, strong in the Force, and even lures Rosh Penin to follow the Dark Side of the Force.

By the end of investigation Jaden finds Rosh Penin several times, the last being on Byss, where the young Jedi pleads his friend to be merciful and asks forgiveness. Alora, a Dark Jedi and the apprentice of Tavion is infuriated by this set of events and duels Jaden after cutting off Rosh's arm. Korr then rushes to Korriban to stop Tavion in the Valley of the Jedi.
