this Jedi Padawan was being trained by Master Arligan Zey when the Clone Wars broke out. When Master Zey assumed the role of an intelligence officer, Jusik followed him as an advisor and companion. He was unprepared for his first encounter with a clone trooper, however, and often stared at individual troopers for long periods of time before recovering himself. The more he came to understand the cloned soldiers, the more Jusik realized that they were people, just like every other sentient being. The fact that they were being "manufactured" and sent into battle - just like the battle droids fo the Separatists - meant that the Old Republic was using them as a means to an end, and little more. The fact that the Jedi Order had agreed to command these troops meant that the Jedi also were losing their respect for living beings. Even though he was just a Padawan, Bardan arranged to argue these points with the Jedi Council, after the fighting on Qiilura.
