Aboard the Jedi Cruiser Tranquility, Nute Gunray is interrogated by Jedi Luminara Unduli and Ahsoka Tano. Able to withstand Luminara's line of questioning, he finally relents after Ahsoka threatens his life.
FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
A by-the-book Jedi, Luminara Unduli served the Jedi Order during the last years of the Republic. Together with her Padawan Barriss Offee, Luminara joined the Jedi rescue effort on Geonosis, engaging Count Dooku’s battle droids in the first conflict of the Clone Wars.
Along with many other Jedi, Luminara led clone troops during the war against the Separatists. She supervised the transport of Nute Gunray to Coruscant and took part in the second invasion of Geonosis. Luminara also continued to train Barriss, though her Padawan would eventually turn against the Jedi Order.
THE DARK TIMES
Luminara led troops during the Battle of Kashyyyk, and for years it was believed that she had died there, killed by her own soldiers when Supreme Chancellor Palpatine issued Order 66. The truth was different: She was taken into Imperial custody and held in the prison known as the Spire before her execution. Holographic footage of a captive Luminara was then used to lure fugitive Jedi into an Imperial trap.
Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars. Alongside Anakin, she grew from headstrong student into a mature leader. But her destiny laid along a different path than the Jedi.
An assassin trained in the ways of the dark side by Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress yearned to be considered a true Sith, but such status wasn't allowed under the Sith's Rule of Two. Ventress fought with twin red-bladed lightsabers, and clashed with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker many times. But her destiny would not lie with the Sith. After Dooku rejected her as his apprentice and tried to kill her, Ventress returned to her roots as a Nightsister, made a living as a bounty hunter, and – in the strangest twist of all – rediscovered the way of the light that she’d rejected long ago as a Jedi Padawan.
Neimoidians are known for their business skills, but Nute Gunray, Viceroy of the Trade Federation, was more cutthroat than most. It was Gunray who conspired with the Sith Lord Darth Sidious to launch the blockade and subsequent invasion of Naboo. Once the planet was under siege, Gunray attempted to force Queen Amidala to sign a treaty that would legitimize the occupation. Amidala escaped, and returned to infiltrate her own palace and blast through Gunray's protectors. Arrested by Republic officials, Gunray was carted off to answer for his crimes, but evaded imprisonment and kept his post.
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.
Clone Commander Gree, designation 1004, led the Elite Corps of clone troopers during the Clone Wars. He saw deployments on such heated battlefronts as Kashyyyk. Gree himself wore camouflaged armor to better blend into jungle surroundings. Though a faithful commander who carried out the Jedi's orders, Gree was ultimately loyal to the Republic. When Chancellor Palpatine enacted Order 66, Gree understood it was a worst-case scenario contingency -- the Jedi had betrayed the Republic, and were therefore dangerous enemies of the state.
The Mirialan Padawan to Luminara Unduli, Barriss Offee preferred learning and studying ancient Jedi texts in the Temple to war. This mindset, while noble, led her down a dark path that saw her betray friends and commit terrible acts.
