Cin Drallig was a Jedi Master in the waning days of the Galactic Republic and a General during the Clone Wars.

Trained by Grand Master Yoda, Drallig was a legendary lightsaber instructor and battlemaster at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and his skills were impressive, to say the least. Though he was not a member of the Jedi High Council, his swordsmanship likely rivaled or exceeded that of several Council members. Other Jedi sometimes referred to him as "The Troll" in reference to his relentless training procedures and ferocious attack style. 

Drallig instructed many Jedi in the art of lightsaber combat, such as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. However, Drallig trained Serra Keto as his favorite apprentice. He specialized in all forms of lightsaber combat except Form VII, though he seems to have maintained a good working knowledge of it as he was able to describe its strengths and weaknesses to his students. In addition, Cin was also capable of hurling powerful spheres of concentrated Force energy at his opponents. Also, he seemed to frequently utilize Force Speed during combat, to great effect which people could not catch up with him in duels. Drallig made his home deep within the Jedi Temple and gave himself over completely to the will of the Living Force.

Near the end of the Clone Wars, his apprentice, Serra, was killed by Darth Vader during his raid on the Jedi Temple. Cin Drallig, good as his dueling skills may have been, was no match for Lord Vader. Drallig was later accompanied in the duel by two Padawans: Whie Malreaux and Bene. They were holding off the clone troopers in the Room of a Thousand Fountains while the younger Padawans fled the building. Then, Vader attacked them and first killed Whie, then Bene. 

Drallig attacked Vader, but Vader managed to outmaneuver him and slashed through Master Drallig's shoulder. He then watched as the venerable Jedi Master dropped to the floor, dying. His murder was one of many witnessed by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda over the security holograms in the temple. At the time of his murder, Drallig knew Vader as Anakin Skywalker, hero of the Republic. 

When the Galactic Empire emerged, official records compiled by Sate Pestage stated that Drallig was killed fighting Imperial agents.
