Dana Vash was a Human female Jedi Knight during the Clone Wars. Vash, a descendant of Jedi Master Lonna Vash, was seen by her superiors as a potential future Jedi High Council member. Despite only being twelve years older than her first Padawan, Dormé Parricida, the two formed a close relationship, akin to sisters and, in some cases, a mother and daughter. Vash gave off a stoic and professional appearance, but she was also a soft and caring individual, similar to her apprentice.
