Star Wars Legacy - The New Jedi Order part 2

I will get around to doing Power Trip soon honestly, but it needs a little more research and thought before I get started so I thought I'd hit you with another reveal into the world of Star Wars Legacy this time discussing those Jedi who are no longer active members of the order for various reasons.
There should be a fair bit less to say in this so I'll just get it out and then move on to another topic.

With the Sith in power the galaxy is not a safe place for the Jedi who used to defend it. At the end of the war, the Sith and the Empire assaulted both the Jedi temple on Coruscant and the academy on Ossus. This brought the Jedi down to around half their strength and scattered them. The Sith hunt them as well as eager bounty hunters so their numbers have been reduced further and it is hard for them to fight back or make their presence known at all. We will look at some of the Jedi who have not survived the changing galaxy.

Inactive Jedi

Kol Skywalker

Species: Human
Sex: Male
Homeworld: Unknown
Position: Jedi Master, Council member
First Appearance: Legacy #1 (Broken, part 1)

Kol was a leading member of the Jedi Council and heir to the Skywalker name, despite being proud of his heritage Kol did sometimes feel trapped by his anscestry, never more so than when he fell in love with an Imperial agent named Morrigan Corde, who bore him a son, Cade. Knowing the council disaproved Corde left when she was called for duty, leaving Kol to raise his son alone. Kol remained a leader among the Jedi until one of his ideas gave the Sith their opening. Showing the compassion of a true Jedi Kol devised a plan to let the Yuuzhan Vong become a part of galactic society, but the Sith sabotaged the project and when the Jedi tried to defend the Vong war broke out - and the Jedi lost. Kol fell battling Sith at the academy he called home, sacrificing himself to let the young padawans escape.

Rasi Tuum

Species: Cathar
Sex: Male
Homeworld: Cathar(?)
Position: Jedi Knight (maybe master)
First Appearance: Legacy #2 (Broken, part 2)

Little has been revealed about Rasi Tuum. He met reluctantly with Wolf Sazen of Daluuj to discus his plan of finding Cade Skywalker, Rasi believed Cade to be dead and wasn't sure of the plan. Soon afterwards he was attacked and killed during a Sith ambush, only Sazen and Vao survived.

Hosk Trey'lis

Species: Bothan
Sex: Male
Homeworld: Bothawui (?)
Position: Jedi healer
First Appearance: Legacy #2 (Broken, part 2)

Hosk is a Jedi healer who got caught up in unfortunate events in a darker galaxy. Hosk had managed, like many Jedi, to blend into society and escape the Sith for many years. But when he was in a safehouse Cade's crew of bounty hunters burst in after a mark. Thinking they were after him Hosk revealed his Jedi powers and tried to escape, but was brought down by the crew. Hosk was handed over to Rav, the former pirate who kept Cade and crew in his debt, who then turned him in to the Sith. He was tortured into revealing Cade's identity and was even forced to attempt to heal Darth Krayt due to his abilities, but he failed. Cade attempted to rescue him, but was himself captured and now Hosk remains in the hands of the Sith.

I've mentioned Cade enough times so I don't need to explain his situation again. We don't know much about the Jedi in this era, what with them being scattered and in hiding, but who knows more may appear some day.
