Yoda

Yoda is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe.

Yoda was a green Jedi Master in Star Wars and one of the senior members of the Jedi Council. He trained Count Dooku as an apprentice. He also trained Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker. At the climax of the Battle of Geonosis, Yoda duelled Count Dooku and saved Obi-Wan Kenobi and his Padawan, Anakin Skywalker. During the Jedi purge, Yoda escaped to Dagobah. Luke met Yoda on Dagobah and Yoda agreed to train him in the ways of the Jedi. Luke chose to leave Dagobah to confront Darth Vader and save his friends before completing his training. Luke promised he would return. When Luke returned to Dagobah, Yoda had became very sick. Yoda died at the age of 900.

In the original Star Wars trilogy, Yoda was realised as a Muppet and voiced by Frank Oz. In Attack of the Clones, computer animation was used instead, allowing Yoda to participate in an elaborate fight scene.

Yoda's mangles his English in a distinctive manner (need the technical explanation from a grammarian...isn't it something like object-verb-subject?)
