Tirns Pontell was a male Zabrak and a member of the Jedi Grand Council on Coruscant during the years leading up to the Shadow Crisis.
In 256 ABY, Master Pontell was sent to investigate a Hutt agent on Raxus Prime with an elite team of soldiers led by COD Captain Serin Berrant assisting him on the mission. After requisitioning vital information from the droid, Pontell flew back to Coruscant to report his findings, which would later implicate the gangster underboss Gondaa the Hutt in multiple illicit activities surrounding the insurgent Mandalorian Death Watch.
