You don't understand power, Grand Admiral Thrawn. Conquering worlds you'll never even visit isn't power. Neither is destroying ships and people and rebellions you haven't looked at face-to-face.
~ C'baoth to Thrawn
So at last you have come to me. I knew you would. Together we will teach the galaxy what it means to serve the Jedi.
~ C'baoth to Luke Skywalker and Mara Jade
I serve no Emperor. My power is for myself alone.
~ C'baoth

Joruus C'baoth was a Dark Jedi and the insane clone of the long-deceased Jedi Master Jorus C'baoth. He was created by Palpatine to serve as the Guardian of the Imperial storehouse at Mount Tantiss on Wayland. He is the secondary antagonist of Heir to the Empire and Dark Force Rising as well as the main antagonist of The Last Command.

History

In 9 ABY, Grand Admiral Thrawn discovered the existence of the storehouse and traveled to Wayland. He succeeded in recruiting the Dark Jedi to join him in his campaign to destroy the New Republic, making good use of his battle meditation powers. C'baoth also attempted to lure Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa Solo to the dark side of the Force as part of a plan to seize the Empire for himself. However, as his plan entered its final stages, Thrawn had C'baoth imprisoned in Mount Tantiss, having finally realized the threat the insane Jedi posed to the Empire. After taking control of the Imperials left to guard him on Wayland, he was confronted by New Republic forces including Skywalker and the Force-sensitive smuggler Mara Jade. The two dueled with C'baoth, and Jade managed to kill the mad clone.

Trivia

Originally Timothy Zahn intended C'baoth to be a mad clone of Obi-Wan Kenobi that had survived the Clone Wars. However Lucasfilm objected to that premise, so Zahn created the character of Jorus C'baoth and his clone Joruus C'baoth as a replacement.
