Born into a wealthy Corellian family, Arfan Ramos had an affinity for the Force that was discovered at an early age. Instead of sending him to the Jedi Council for training, however, his family gave him over to the Green Jedi of Coronet City‒an enclave of Jedi who rejected the council's authority and placed loyalty to Corellia above all else.
Like most of the Green Jedi, Master Arfan focused primarily on philosophical studies and research into the non-martial uses of the Force. Over the decades, he distinguished himself among his peers and rose to a position of wise, contemplative authority. With the arrival of the Empire and the defection of the local government, however, Master Arfan recognized the time for pacifism was past, and he was quick to change the Green Jedi's focus. Strong in the Force and a confident and capable leader, he has willingly shouldered the burden that has been thrust upon him.
