Kamen Woof is a former Jedi Master and one of the members of the Jedi High Council prior to Khanzem. Although loyal to the Order, he was dissatisfied with his job and often ended up running errands for the rest of the Council. Following the rise of Whoot Smackler Whoot, Woof managed to survive using a very bold, or arguably stupid tactic; unlike the other Jedi, who had gone far away into exile, Woof hid in Khanzem in plain sight, picking up various odd jobs to get by.
Era of the Jedi
Kamen Woof hatched on May 19, 1887 in the High Penguin Confederacy. A few years later in 1889, he was discovered to be force-sensitive, and was brought to the Jedi Temple in South Pole City to be trained as a Jedi. In 1894, Woof participated in The Gathering, an annual ritual where Jedi younglings would construct their own lightsabers, and did just that.
Eventually he rose up through the ranks of the Jedi and was appointed to the Jedi High Council in 1909 following the tragic death of a former council member in a freak papercut accident. He slowly grew dissatisfied with the state of the Council, feeling that the members with the most seniority made most of the decisions while the other Jedi had their opinions ignored, if they were even consulted in the first place. It didn't help that he was often sent on errands by the rest of the Council, such as picking up pizza.
In 1913, the High Penguin Confederacy was taken over by Whoot Smackler Whoot, and Khanzem rose. Whoot allied himself with the Sith, who decimated the Jedi Order across Antarctica as the Khanzem War progressed. The surviving Jedi were forced to go into exile, and Kamen Woof eventually lost contact with what remained of the Council. Unlike most, he decided to hide in plain sight, wearing an oversized fake mustache to disguise himself and picking up various odd jobs, often serving food. While on the job, he often served high-ranking Khanzem officers and Sith warriors, and at one point even had an encounter with Whoot himself, but his status as both a high penguin and exiled Jedi was somehow never discovered.
Once Khanzem fell, Woof opted to leave the ways of the Jedi behind and went into retirement, leading a life as a normal penguin, although he still kept his lightsaber with him at all times and would often use the force to accomplish mundane tasks.
- Jedi - For much of his early life, Kamen Woof was involved in the Jedi Order. He was later appointed to the Jedi High Council in 1909, but was often sent on errands by the other Jedi.
- Server - Serving food was the most common type of job that Kamen Woof picked up during the Khanzem War. One of these was serving food to the high penguins who had been forced to maintain one of Whoot's orange groves.
Woof was originally a much more cheerful penguin, and was also somewhat of a trickster, occasionally using the force to play harmless pranks on other Jedi. As the years went by, he became more cynical as a result of his dissatisfaction with the state of the Council. He was a firm believer in peace and justice, and despite his disappointment with what he believed the Order had become, stayed loyal to it for upholding these ideals.
His mental health basically fell apart after the rise of Khanzem due to the stress of the situation, and he would often have panic attacks. After the Khanzem War ended, he recovered somewhat, but was never quite the same.
Kamen Woof is very tall even by high penguin standards, being nearly 7 feet tall, towering over fellow high penguin Jedi Obi-Wan Sensei and Axe Pingu. How he managed to keep his identity as a high penguin a secret in plain sight in Khanzem is unknown.
- Lightsaber - A blue-bladed Jedi lightsaber, which he personally constructed while participating in The Gathering as a youngling.
