Biography

Knight of the Jedi Order

Brought into the Order

Forty-Eight years before the Battle of Yavin, a young Aayla Secura was discovered to have a strong connection to the Force while a pair of Jedi undertook a mission to Ryloth. Though she was a member of Clan Secura, the girl was kept with Twi'lek slaves of the local Hutt crime lord, to help ensure her safety from any possible threat. Although, during Tholme and Vos's visit, the wampa of the Hutt went on a rampage, and the little Secura found herself in immediate peril. To her fortune, she sent out her need through the Force and her presence was sensed and she was saved by Quinlan Vos. A strong connection formed almost instantly between him and Secura. Vos persuaded master Tholme to test Secura for Jedi training on Coruscant, where she passed the tests.

Arising to Knighthood

When Aayla was about ten years old, Quinlan Vos took her as his Padawan. Aayla Secura developed into a skilled swordswoman and studied various Lightsaber forms including the Jar'Kai form, using a green and a blue blade. She would also occasionally use a violet Lightsaber. She also had a very close relationship with Jedi Kit Fisto, one which pushed the limits of the Jedi Code at times. Secura once learned a very valuable lesson when her pet died. Her master comforted her by relating how her beloved was now part of the Force, and would also live on in her heart. Ironically enough, she buried her pet on Felucia a planet she returned to just before her own life abruptly ended. Padawan Secura and her Master, Quinlan Vos, undertook many successive missions together. Eventually, after returning to the Jedi Temple back on Coruscant, Secura and Vos were both promoted by the Jedi High Council. Secura was granted the rank of Jedi Knight, and Vos, that of a Jedi Master. Aayla Secura was in the Jedi Temple at the time of the Battle of Geonosis and thus was apart of the task force sent to Geonosis to rescue two Jedi and the Senator Padmé Amidala held captive. Igniting her Lightsaber and charging into battle, Secura was one of the survivors of the battle between the Separatist Alliance and the Jedi that ensued in the arena. She took part in a skirmish that took place in the Geonosian arena and was one of only a handful of Jedi to survive. 

Conflicts in the Clone Wars

Forced into the circle of survivors at gunpoint, Secura and the others evacuated on newly-arrived gunships and then led her own squad of clone troopers into battle. She later led her Clone Troopers squad into the battle that led to the galaxy-wide conflict known as the Clone Wars. Secura was assigned Commander CC-5052, known as "Bly", as her second in command and his 327th Star Corps. While most of the Jedi that were a part of the ground team died in battle, Aayla survived the conflict and participated in the further stages of the Battle of Geonosis, and the rest of the war. After capturing an important Separatist tactical droid, Secura and Commander Bly were dispatched to lead an assault over the planet Quell. As her ships were assaulted by rocket droids, Jedi Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano, arrived and helped Bly and Secura evacuate the decimated Republic Cruiser. The Jedi and the Clones destroyed most of the droids on her ship, but were ambushed by a large number of Super Battle droids and were forced to flee toward Skywalker's ship. But then, an explosion started behind the pursuing droids. Skywalker noticed this early and Force pushed Secura, Tano, and some more clones into the ship's doorway and tried to use the Force to stop the explosion. Skywalker's attempt didn't work and he was seriously injured, fortunately, Tano and Secura rescued him.

Before the Jedi could dock aboard the Resolute to give Skywalker medical attention, fire from droid fighters knocked out one of the pilots, accidentally activating the hyperdrive. She then ordered Tano to assist Bly in flying the frigate before it could collide with one of the stars. Secura then ordered the power to be turned off, despite the risk to Skywalker's life. However, during the chaos, she was pushed away from the switch but was able to use the force to turn the power back on. The ship then crashed on the planet Maridun. After the crash, Secura then decided to find help and ordered Tano to accompany her, Bly, Cameron, Lucky, and Flash to do so. En route, Secura began sensing Tano's doubt and confusion. Worried about her master, she started questioning the Jedi philosophy concerning attachments. Secura assured her that it was nothing to be ashamed of as she went through the same thing with her own master, but Secura learnt to let go. Secura and her group then came under attack by Mastiff phalones that killed three of her troopers. She, Ahsoka and Bly then found a village of Lurmen. Secura then asked the village elder Tee Watt Kaa for aid but he refused to help them. However, upon hearing of their friends' plight, he allowed his son to go with Ahsoka and Bly to treat them as long as Secura stayed at the village. Secura and Tee Watt Kaa then started discussing the Jedi involvement in the war and how she believed it was their intention not to spark conflict but to restore peace to the galaxy.

Secura, Skywalker, Tano, Rex and Bly were then forced to leave the village when Separatist General Lok Durd arrived and searched the village for contraband. Secura then destroyed a scout droid and found Durd's base. There she witnessed Durd's secret weapon, the Defoliator tank, and rescued Bly from its effects. Despite Tee Watt Kaa's wishes, Secura and Skywalker decide to steal Durd's shuttle and stop him from using it on the Lurmen village. Secura and Tano then snuck into the base, destroyed the droids and took the shield generators. Secura and the others then made their way back to the village and set up a barrier and shield around its periphery, despite Tee Watt Kaa's objections. She and the others then fought against Durd's Squad until Skywalker disable Durd and his weapon. With the Lurmen finally deciding to defend their village, they along with the remainder of the republic forces, were able to destroy the rest of the separatist droid army. Secura then took Durd and the Defoiliator's gunner, into custody aboard their shuttle just as the Republic arrived. Secura would be in the Jedi Temple's communications center when Cad Bane infiltrated the Temple to steal a Holocron on the behalf of the Dark Lord of the Sith. Secura then aided Grand Master Yoda in distracting the Zillo Beast while Anakin Skywalker worked on a plan to save Chancellor Palpatine, Senator Amidala, C-3PO, and R2-D2.

Fall of the Jedi

Secura later went with Masters Windu, Kenobi, Tiplee to investigate a recent battle on Ord Mantell. She and Windu assisted Kenobi in fighting Darth Maul and Count Dooku. After the death of Tiplee, she left Maul's ship with prisoners. Shortly after the Battle of Coruscant and following the Siege of Saleucami, Secura and her troops were sent to the exotic Outer Rim planet of Felucia, along with Clone Commander Bly, where she and her troops fought against the Separatist forces stationed there. While preparing to engage an oncoming onslaught of droids, Secura glanced to the skies as a Felucian bird flew overhead. Standing behind her friend and commanding officer, the ever-loyal Commander Bly received word from the Supreme Chancellor ordering him to carry out Order 66, which denounced Secura and all her fellow Jedi across the throughout the galaxy as traitors to the Republic. Bly, having received the orders, ordered his fellow clones to open fire on the Twi'lek Jedi. Distracted by the bird, the Twi'lek could not even ignite her Lightsaber before she was struck by blasterfire from behind; as she crumpled to the ground beneath a large fungal growth, the same clones she had trusted and even risked her life for continued to fire at her body repeatedly. Despite the attempts of the Galactic Empire, Aayla Secura was remembered by the people of the worlds she aided, in some cases merging with pre-existing goddess myths or historical figures.
