Plo Koon descended from a long line of Kel Dor Jedi Knights. His highly developed extrasensory organs increased his Jedi mind powers. Plo Koon and Qui-Gon Jinn were friends long before becoming Jedi Masters. Plo Koon was appointed to the Jedi Council, but Qui-Gon proved too headstrong to serve with his friend. Master Koon looked forward to the day his friend Qui-Gon would earn a short-term appointment to the Jedi Council. Master Koon’s own appointment to the Jedi Council was due in large part to his actions during the Stark Hyperspace Conflict. A great Jedi Master's death in the Fifth Battle of Qotile threatened to rout the Republic's forces, but Koon rallied the Republic forces and led them to victory.
Master Koon was among the six Jedi Council members assigned to a mission to Malastare to negotiate peace between the planet of Lannik and Red Iaro terrorists. Months before the Battle of Naboo, Master Koon sat on the Reconciliation Council when Qui-Gon reported the destruction of the Trade Federation freighter Revenue. During the Battle of Geonosis, Master Koon was among the Jedi forces that attacked the Droid Control Ship and was one of the few Council members to survive the battle.

Plo Koon is the tightest Jedi ever.
When an offender breaks wind in a group consisting of two or more people, during a serious conversation and carries on without recognizing that any infraction has occurred. A Grand Plo Koon is when none of the members of the group shows any reaction whatsoever.
During the annual board meeting, the CEO Plo Kooned relentlessly. The only thing keeping the situation from turning into a Grand Plo Koon, was the CFO's inability to keep a smirk from his face.
