Micah Giiett is one of my favorite Jedi, and is unfortunately also relatively lesser-known and hardly talked about. Respect the Pudgy Jedi!

Micah Giiett is one of the best Jedi in the Order.

The New Essential Chronology (2005, Daniel Wallace, Kevin J. Anderson) wrote:Though the cruisers carried some of the best Jedi in the order -- including Windu, Adi Gallia, Eeth Koth, Plo Koon, Micah Giiett, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Qui-Gon's Padawan Obi-Wan Kenobi -- the Yinchorri possessed cortosis-weave armor that could resist lightsaber cuts. They also had the advice and silent backing of Darth Sidious.

Obi-Wan Kenobi states matter-of-factly that Micah Giiett has the superior mastery of the Force to himself and K’Kruhk.

Micah Giiett fools Obi-Wan Kenobi and K’Kruhk with his game, teaching them to use their minds and other senses as well as the Force. According to Qui-Gon, the same trick had worked on almost every other Padawan he could remember.

Micah Giiett’s permanent seat on the Jedi High Council is given posthumously to Ki-Adi-Mundi, who was a senior member of the Council and the third highest in authority, at least heavily implying that Micah Giiett had been as well.

Fact File #23 (2002, Christopher Cerasi) wrote:It was the death of Master Micah Giiett during the conflict with the Yinchorri that tragically left a space in the ranks of the Jedi Council. Mace Windu suggested that Ki-Adi-Mundi fill that position.

In combat scenes, Micah Giiett is always taking point in the Jedi's charges and bringing up the rear in the Jedi's retreats, deflecting any attacks to come their way. It's arguable that he has the most consistently impressive combat performance of any Jedi in the Acts of War series.

Micah is an incredibly quick thinker, an intent carried over by his main writer to even "silly" comics, often outshining even Plo Koon, who's consistently lauded as a tactical genius in his own right.

Micah was almost certainly the third in authority leading up until the Phantom Menace, which has great implications for his combative ability.

Micah's death, brought on by a shot to the back from an enemy whose mind is immune to the Force, was sensed by the most powerful Force users across the galaxy, and was seen as a major boon by Darth Sidious.

Atop all that, he's a godly chef.

All in all, he's definitely one of the Jedi High Council's heavy hitters, and extremely underrated. Respect Micah Giiett!
