Satele Shan was a Human female who served as a Jedi during the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the resurgent Sith Empire. She was a descendent of the Jedi Knights Bastila Shan and Revan.
During the start of the Great Galactic War, Shan participated in several major battles on behalf of the Republic during the war, and studied under a number of Jedi Masters, including the Togruta Dar'Nala. As a Padawan in 3,681 BBY, she was an apprentice to Zabrak Master, Kao Cen Darach, during the Fall of Korriban. They both fought against Malgus and Vindican until Kao urged Satele to escape and warn the Republic about the Sith's return, while he remained behind to delay the Sith; Satele felt Kao's death at the hands of Malgus. With the help of a smuggler, Satele was able to deliver the news to the Jedi Order and the Republic. After achieving Knighthood, Shan played a pivotal role in the struggle for the Core World of Alderaan, which had come under a devastating attack from the Sith Lord Darth Malgus. In a confrontation in the forests of Alderaan, Shan engaged Darth Malgus and was defeated by the Sith Lord, but with the assistance of the Commander Jace Malcom she was able to dispatch him. Near the end of the war, Satele led forces on Rhen Var alongside many powerful Jedi to defeat Darth Mekhis and her Sith forces.
In 3,653 BBY, Shan was selected by the Jedi High Council to accompany Master Dar'Nala back to Alderaan, where peace negotiations were being held between delegations from the Republic and Empire. During the conference, it was revealed that the Sith were only entertaining the idea of peace so as to distract the Republic from their true goal: the capture of their enemy's capital world of Coruscant. Imperial forces sacked Coruscant during the peace negotiations, and held the world hostage in an attempt to gain leverage over the Republic delegates. Although Shan attempted to kill the Sith negotiator, she was stopped by Dar'Nala and Republic senator Paran Am-Ris. Am-Ris was eventually forced to sign the Treaty of Coruscant, which declared the war to be at an end and the Sith to be its victors. In the aftermath of the Sacking of Coruscant and the debacle on Alderaan, Shan and Dar'Nala were assigned to tour the former flashpoints in the war and ensure that Republic forces were complying with the mandates of the Treaty. During this time, Shan discovered that Dar'Nala was undermining both Republic and Imperial interests by instigating acts of terrorism, and so was forced to act against her former Master—a decision that ultimately resulted in Dar'Nala's death.
Satele Shan was later promoted to the rank of Jedi Knight in light of her heroics both during the war and after. She cemented her position as a major actor within the Jedi Order when she rediscovered the lost Jedi homeworld of Tython and helped to establish a new Jedi Temple on the planet. Shan became a mother at some point in her life, giving birth to Theron Shan, who eventually became a spy for the Republic. During the period of tension that characterized the post-war years, Shan was selected to be the Jedi Order's leader in the capacity of Grand Master, and took the Kiffar Shigar Konshi as her Padawan. Around 3,643 BBY, full-scale war was very nearly reignited between the Republic and Empire when rogue droids and a Mandalorian warrior began initiating conflicts between the two governments. Due to the work of Shan, her Padawan, and their short-lived alliance with members of the Empire, war was avoided, but the tensions remained.
