May 2006. From "Republic Commando: Triple Zero" by Karen Traviss, General Bardan Jusik is a young Jedi Knight working secret operations for a very special anti-terrorism unit of elite clones. They are lead by Mandalorian warrior and mercenary Kal Skirata.
The attracting point with Bardan is his attachment to the Mandalorian culture as a Jedi. He gets his own scary armor and helmet at the end of the novel but YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO KNOW THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T READ IT
