Artefacts of Old
Gar Anstak was a Jedi Master during the Great Sith War. A male Mairan from Maires in the Hapes Consortium, Anstak was shunned by his fellow Mairans, as all Jedi were by the peoples of the Consortium. He possessed black, rubbery skin and over forty tentacles which came in handy during his service as an archivist on Ossus.
Gar worked as a scholar on Ossus in the Great Jedi Library of Odan-Urr; gathering many artifacts in an underwater repository.
Coming from a watery world, Gar specialized in recovering and identifying artifacts from aqueous worlds such as Iskalon, Issor, and Drexel. Due to the necessity of keeping himself moist, and because the artifacts were water-based, Master Anstak established his offices in the submerged caverns of Imhar Canyon on Ossus, which was annexed to the library.
In 3,996 BBY, when Ossus was devastated by the creation of the Cron Drift, courtesy of Aleema Keto of the Krath, Master Anstak`s remote office location protected it from annihilation. However, landslides resulting from the explosion trapped Gar in his offices and hid them from the galaxy for millennia.
