High Republic Era By the High Republic Era, Yoda was considered a great Jedi Master, having gained a seat on the Jedi High Council and the rank of Grand Master. At least two other Jedi— Lahru and Pra-Tre Veter —shared that title with Yoda.
The species had two known sexes: male and female. Members of the species were small in size, roughly comparable to that of a human child, with green skin, large eyes and long pointed ears. Their three-fingered hands ended in claws.
When Sidious, publicly Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, revealed himself and issued Order 66, which killed most Jedi across the galaxy, Yoda was one of the few survivors, returning to Coruscant and duelling the self-declared Galactic Emperor; however, Yoda was forced to retreat.
The species to which the legendary Jedi Grand Master Yoda belonged was ancient and shrouded in mystery. Members of this species were rarely seen anywhere in the galaxy. The few members of this species seen in the galaxy were all Force-sensitive, and the species' homeworld and name were unknown.
