Reeft was a Dressellian Jedi Knight who was trained in the Jedi Temple during the period of the Old Republic. He was good friend of Obi-Wan Kenobi, Garen Muln, and Bant Eerin during their childhood years.
Hailing from the planet Dressel, Reeft was discovered to be Force-sensitive as an infant, and was brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant where he studied the ways of the Force. Like all Initiates to the Order, Reeft was sorted into a clan of fellow younglings. and became a good friend with Obi-Wan Kenobi, Bant Eerin, and Garen Muln. Making fast friends with fellow clan members Obi-Wan Kenobi, Garen Muln, and Bant Eerin, the group received their earliest lessons from clan instructor Docent Vant. Known for his enduring appetite, Reeft would often finish any remnants of food left on his friends' plates in the Temple's dining halls. After years of studying together, the wrinkle-faced boy was chosen by Jedi Master Binn Ibes for one-on-one training as a Padawan around his thirteenth birthday.
After years of study with Master Ibes, Reeft was tasked with completing his Trials of Knighthood; a series of tests which he passed successfully under the eyes of the Jedi High Council and Temple battlemaster. Ascending to the rank of Jedi Knight, Reeft pursued independent studies throughout his service during the Separatist Crisis.
In 22 BBY, Jedi Reeft was assigned to apprehend the notorious thief Rotar Lopani on Brentaal IV. As Reeft tracked the criminal through a crowded market, the Xexto bounty hunter Tosinqas trailed him and was eventually able to get to Lopani first. As Reeft approached Lopani, Tosinqas jumped from the shadows and killed Lopani. Startled when Reeft drew his lightsaber in a defensive position, Tosinqas charged the Jedi and, misjudging the lightsaber's length, bisected himself on the blade. Reporting the incident to the High Council and returning the bodies to the Temple, Reeft came under political fire from the angered Bounty Hunters' Guild who filed a complaint with the Judicial Department. The Guild's stance was that the Order operated in relative secret, and stated that better communication between the Jedi Temple would have prevented an incident like the one involving Tosinqas.
During the same year since his return to Coruscant, a civil rest between the Old Republic and the Separatist Alliance continued and Reeft would become a Jedi General of the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. However, after the war was coming to an end, Reeft was by his own troops during the execution of Order 66 which was orchestrated by Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, who was in fact Darth Sidious. His death marked the spark of the Great Jedi Purge.
