Teuch Neuko was a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council during the Clone War and the years
preceding it. He considered himself to be neither Guardian nor Consular, instead studying all aspects of Jedi training. He was a very moderate Jedi, practicing Form III, Soresu, and only demonstrating his superior lightsaber skills and Force knowledge if absolutely necessary. He was elected to the High Council after the murder of Even Piell, and continued to serve through the Clone War. Though he often remained as a leader on Coruscant, he still engaged in several battles during the war, such as Serenno and Telmaros.
He was killed on Darabbon during Order 66.

Early Years Edit
Clone War Edit
Personality and Traits Edit
Teuch was a very reserved Jedi, and often very traditional in his thinking, though he did recognize the need for the Jedi to become generals, even if he disliked it. He was known to be a tough and exacting master, though he was also very supportive and proud of his padawans should they complete his training and reach the rank of Jedi Knight. Teuch was also very demanding of himself, which showed in his skills in the rare instances that he displayed them to their full measure.
Powers and Abilities Edit
"The closest to Sith most any Jedi has faced are Asajj Ventress and General Grievous."
"and very few survive an encounter with Grievous. One of those few is here with us now."
"Indeed. Though none escape a battle with that monster unwounded."
~Plo Koon, Kyidyin Muchian, and Teuch Neuko, in regards to Neuko's battle with Grievous.
As neither a Guardian nor a Consular, Teuch heavily practiced both his swordsmanship and his Force abilities, becoming highly skilled in each due to his tough training regimen. He also had abilities as a diplomat, which he preferred to use before force. Despite his prowess, Teuch only displayed his abilities to the fullest when absolutely necessary, preferring not to showcase his talents for fear of becoming prideful of them, particularly his mastery of the Force. When he did use his skills to the fullest, he was a force to be reckoned with, and was one of very few Jedi to not only survive, but actually win a one-on-one engagement with General Grievous, though he was injured during the battle.
Despite his plethora of skills, Teuch, like so many others, was blindsided and murdered by his clone troopers before even having the chance to defend himself.
