While Star Wars: The High Republic starts at the beginning of Keeve Trennis’ Jedi career, earlier works indicate that she may not stay with the Order.
WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Star Wars: The High Republic #1-4 by Cavan Scott, Ario Anindito, Mark Morales, Annalisa Leoni & VC’s Ariana Maher, on sale now.
Star Wars: The High Republic begins with Padawan Keeve Trennis completing her trials and being knighted on the Starlight Beacon. Between the Nihil’s attacks and the Drengir’s awakening, her time as a Jedi Knight has been fraught with difficulties. While she currently is strong on her path, Cavan Scott’s earlier audio drama Dooku: Jedi Lost indicates that Keeve might not remain a Jedi Knight. Instead, she may become one of the Lost Jedi who leave the Order to find another path.

Dooku: Jedi Lost focuses on Count Dooku’s life story, from his childhood onward. During a section of the drama focusing on Dooku’s training, Yoda takes a class of young Jedi initiates to the Archives. When one of the students asks about the busts found in the room, Yoda and Jedi Master Yula Braylon explain the Lost Jedi to them. Braylon begins by talking about Radaki, a Jedi who became a Sith Lord, but she later explains that not all of the Lost Jedi fell to the Dark Side. She states, “Some became leaders. Others taught, while most simply vanished into history, never to be heard of again.” Thus, the terms Lost Jedi and fallen Jedi are not synonyms, and the only requirement to be considered a Lost Jedi is to leave the Jedi Order.
Notably, immediately after Braylon mentions that some Lost Jedi are lost to history, Yoda walks over to a bust of a woman, who he identifies as Master Trennis. He says, quietly, “Master Trennis. Hm. Sad, that was. Sad indeed.” The juxtaposition of this moment with Braylon’s earlier statement indicates that Master Trennis might be one of the Lost Jedi whose fates are unknown. Of course, the sadness of her fate might also indicate a fall to the Dark Side as well.
Yoda then turns to the students and states, “Remember them, we must. Honor them, yes. Learn from our failure.” When Dooku questions the “our failure,” Yoda responds that it was their failure “to keep them where they belonged.” While Yoda is taking responsibility for the Order’s failure to support some of its members, he still holds an underlying belief that the Jedi Order is the only place for people with force abilities. Yoda still fails to see other legitimate paths for Jedi that might be outside of the Order even though Braylon already explained that some of the Lost Jedi had meaningful lives once they left.
Star Wars: The High Republic begins at the start of Keeve Trennis’ career as a Jedi Knight, so if she is the Master Trennis depicted in the bust, her abandonment of the Jedi Order could be far in her future. Still, the issues so far have already shown that she is facing greater trials than many of the Jedi who came before her. The Nihil are making the galaxy a far more dangerous place. Most importantly, Jedi Master Sskeer, who trained her, has been struggling against the Dark Side and has made a brave but dangerous decision to bond with the Drengir to better combat their threat. While Keeve has been handling these trials with grace, they may take their toll on her and leave her disillusioned with the Jedi Order.
While the Master Trennis Yoda discusses could very well be Keeve Trennis, her fate is still uncertain. While some of the Lost Jedi, like Dooku and Anakin Skywalker centuries later, fell to the Dark Side, Keeve may not abandon her ideals even if she leaves the Order. The second wave of the Star Wars: The High Republic subseries already plans to begin addressing Jedi who have left the Order through Ty Yorrick and her adventures, and these adventures may intertwine with Keeve’s ultimate fate as she helps the Order and the High Republic deal with the dueling threats of the Drengir and the Nihil.
