14Lor San Tekka
Killed in the opening scene of The Force Awakens, Lor San Tekka was an accomplished explorer and archaeologist even before his discovery of a lost map leading to the first Jedi Temple. It was this sacred site where Luke Skywalker sought refuge after the death of his students at
the hands of Kylo Ren.
Lor San Tekka was a member of the Church Of The Force, which secretly upheld the ideals of the Jedi Knights during the dark days of The Imperial Rule. While not a Force Sensitive, he became the galaxy's leading expert on the ancient lore of the Jedi. He preserved many Jedi documents and worked side-by-side with Luke Skywalker in locating those few Jedi temples left untouched by Emperor Palpatine's purge of Jedi holy sites.
