Gabe Shessan, also known as the Dark Knight, is a rogue Jedi last known to be working with the Shadow Guard. He is extremely dangerous and specially trained to deal with Sith.
Born to the working classes of Kuat, Gabe Shessan was identified by Jedi recruiters at a young age and taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. Sources state that ever since he began lightsaber training, Gabe displayed a talent for the martial abilities of the Force. This skill caused him to be assigned as a Padawan to Jedi Knight Okana Tasi, one of the Order's specialists in dealing with the Sith. Under Tasi he refined his technique and learned the Form II dueling style. He was also taught to use the Force to conceal his presence, as well as further training which prepared him to face other Force users.
Despite his master's prowess, Okana Tasi was killed in a duel with the Sith assassin Occisor, an event which reportedly caused Gabe to give up the lightsaber and turn to more unorthodox weapons, such as the lightwhip. However, this did not prepare him for his confrontation with non-Force using Mandalorians after the Jedi strike force was rerouted to Atzerri. During the fighting, he was separated from the other Jedi and cornered by three warriors. Despite being outnumbered, he managed to slay one Mandalorian and wound a second before being subdued. The Mandalorians captured him but treated him well due to his display of combat skill. It is unknown how exactly he escaped, but information from the Mandalorians place the blame on Republic-supporting clans that participated in the Schism, and several members of these clans went missing during this time as well.
There is a gap of approximately one year between Gabe's escape and his return to Coruscant, and no information can be found on what transpired in this interim. He was apparently given the rank of Jedi Knight after returning to Jedi Temple, and sometime after that gained a Padawan named Vinna Isard. Utilizing his abilities to the fullest extent, the desperate Jedi Council deployed Gabe on various missions with the express purpose of eliminating Sith targets. Due to his successes, there is very little information on these missions.
Recently, Gabe was assigned a new apprentice, Laesa, who was in fact the escaped LAES:B subject from Imperial Black Site Trill. He unknowingly trained her and allowed her access to the archives, at which point LAES:B murdered Vinna Isard and left the temple with an artifact. This incident apparently made him to rogue from the Jedi Order and join forces with the Senator to hunt LAES:B. He mistakenly captured the Intelligence agent who served as a genetic template for LAES:B, but the two managed to forge a temporary alliance and combine their resources to track down and neutralize the loose subject.
