this Nelvaanian male served as the chieftain of the Rokrul villages, during the final years of the Old Republic. When the Separatists established a hidden facility on Nelvaan and began drawing off the planet's geothermal energy, Tuzes-Adaz and his warriors were unable to locate the facility, which the Nelvaanians only understood as a growing illness of the Great Mother. When Tuzes-Adaz discovered Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi in the wilderness of Nelvaan, he quickly remembered the prophecy of the shaman Ovros, who claimed that an offworlder would arrive on Nelvaan and help the Great Mother return to health. Rather than killing the offworlders, Tuzes-Adaz brought the two Jedi back to his village to meet with Orvos. His actions proved important, as it was Anakin who later destroyed the Separatist facility and began Nelvaan's return to normalcy.
