41. Kit Fisto
- Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace
- Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
- Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
- Clone Wars
Kit Fisto was one of many Jedi to show up on Geonisis and rescue Anakain, Obi-Wan and Padme from their public execution in Attack of the Clones. But his finest moments were had as a more fleshed out character in the Clone Wars series that helped establish him as more than just a background Jedi character and more of a member of the Jedi society.
While he was a decent bad ass in the Clone Wars series, Kit Fisto was one of many Jedi who went out like a punk in the films. He was supposed to help Mace Windu overthrow the Chancellor — who had been revealed as the Sith Lord they were all looking for but couldn’t find. Rather than be much of a help, he went out like a punk and in pretty quick order too, seemingly calling into question how much of a bad ass he really was in the end.
Fisto was mostly a background character who was there to fill out the council and make it look like there were a ton of Jedi. But over the years, his backstory has become more fleshed out for fans, and there has been an attachment to him that we’ve seen with other characters who get his sort of treatment. The bigger the universe, the more plentiful the characters will be, but Kit Fisto has managed to stick out nicely thanks to more of his story being told as the years go by.
