Agen Kolar was a Zabrak male Jedi Master who was known for his skill with a lightsaber and his willingness to use it. An accomplished swordsman who almost always took a blunt approach, Kolar spent many years traveling the Outer Rim Territories on missions. He was intensely loyal to the Jedi High Council and rarely doubted its wisdom or questioned its dictates. When the Clone Wars broke out, Kolar fought in the Battle of Geonosis, losing his Padawan, Tan Yuster. Kolar pushed forward, however, becoming an accomplished Jedi General and serving in such engagements as the recapture of Brentaal.

Kolar was also sent on more personal missions, such as his attempt to arrest the wayward Jedi Master Quinlan Vos—though unknown to Kolar, Vos was in fact a double agent, and the failed arrest was meant to give him credibility as he attempted to penetrate Count Dooku's circle of Dark Acolytes—and the show of force against the Crimson Nova chapter of the Bounty Hunters' Guild when they began taking bounties on Jedi. He also became a member of the Jedi Council, taking on a leadership role in the war.
Agen Kolar was originally intended to be Jedi Master Eeth Koth, first seen in the 1999 film The Phantom Menace. As the majority of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones was being shot in Australia, local actor Tux Akindoyeni was brought in to replace the original actor, Hassani Shapi. However, Akindoyeni's facial characteristics, skin tone, makeup and hairstyle were all noticeably different from Hassani Shapi's version of the character—in particular, Shapi's Koth had noticeable lined facial tattoos which Akindoyeni's lacked—and so Akindoyeni's Eeth Koth was thus deemed an entirely new character: Agen Kolar. The newly created Kolar went on to make appearances in the remaining films of the prequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith, the latter of which featured his death during the Showdown on Coruscant.
