this young, male Rodian was a member of the Jedi Knights who trained under Luke Skywalker and fought during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion of the galaxy. Jovan Drark accompanied Tenel Ka to Bilbringi, shortly after the Battle of Fondor, to assess the Yuuzhan Vong threat to the system and its shipyards. He was known among the Jedi an an inperturbable being who rarely took sides, and never let anything which was out of his control affect his judgement. However, he was killed aboard the Baanu Rass, when the Jedi attempted to infiltrate the worldship and destroy the voxyn queen. He was severely bitten by modified flitnats, then took a Yuuzhan Vong strike to his chest. The resulting wound was too large for Tekli to repair, and Jovan died shortly afterward.
