FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
The Cerean Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi was a member of the Jedi Council when Qui-Gon Jinn arrived at the Jedi Temple with a strange story: He had fought a Force-using warrior on Tatooine. Ki-Adi-Mundi doubted Qui-Gon’s contention that the Sith had survived and now threatened the Jedi again.
During the Clone Wars, Ki-Adi-Mundi was one of many Jedi to serve the Republic as a general leading clone troops against the Separatists’ droid armies. Among other campaigns, he fought in the First and Second Battles of Geonosis and the Outer Rim Sieges.
Despite his years of Jedi training, Ki-Adi-Mundi was caught by surprise when Supreme Chancellor Palpatine issued Order 66 to the clone troopers under his command. He turned in disbelief as the troops he served with turned their weapons on him, firing the shots that ended his life.
At the time of their introduction, the Republic clone troopers represented the future of galactic warfare. Far superior to battle droids, the clone troopers formed the backbone of the Republic's new military that waged war against the forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. So symbolic were they of the times, the galaxy-wide conflict that saw their debut took its name from their ranks: the Clone Wars.
A grim Jedi Master with an amethyst-bladed lightsaber, Mace Windu was the champion of the Jedi Order, with little tolerance for the failings of the Senate, the arguments of politicians, or the opinions of rebellious Jedi. As the Clone Wars intensified, Mace sensed the dark side of the Force at work, and knew the Jedi's enemies were plotting to destroy the Order and end its stewardship of the galaxy.
Yoda was a legendary Jedi Master and stronger than most in his connection with the Force. Small in size but wise and powerful, he trained Jedi for over 800 years, playing integral roles in the Clone Wars, the instruction of Luke Skywalker, and unlocking the path to immortality.
A noble order of protectors unified by their ability to tap into the power of the Force, the Jedi Order were the guardians of peace and justice in the Galactic Republic. The age of the Jedi would end, however, due to a nefarious plot by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious.
Discovered as a slave on Tatooine by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. A hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin was caring and compassionate, but also had a fear of loss that would prove to be his downfall.
A harsh rocky world less than a parsec away from Tatooine, Geonosis is a ringed planet beyond the borders of the Galactic Republic. Its uninviting surface is made up of harsh, rocky desert, and the creatures that evolved on Geonosis are well equipped to survive in the brutal environment. The most advanced lifeform are the Geonosians, sentient insectoids that inhabit towering spire-hives. The Geonosians maintain large factories for the production of droids and weapons for the Separatist cause in the Clone Wars.
