Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 2, Episode 7 //
Legacy of Terror
A first look at an upcoming episode of The Clone Wars. See new episodes on television every Friday on the Cartoon Network, and online each following Monday on StarWars.com.
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 legendary Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi was a noble man and gifted in the ways of the Force. He trained Anakin Skywalker, served as a general in the Republic Army during the Clone Wars, and guided Luke Skywalker as a mentor.
Luminara Unduli served the Jedi Order in the final years of the Galactic Republic. A green-skinned female humanoid, Luminara was a trusted advisor to the Jedi Council and the Republic government. When crises demanded it, she and her faithful Padawan learner, Barriss Offee, would rush into the thick of conflict, where their incredible talents with the lightsaber blade served them well. Following Order 66, the fate of Luminara remained a mystery. Yet 14 years after the formation of the Empire, an underground Holonet transmission revealed that she was being held in The Spire prison. It was all a ruse, however; Luminara was dead, her body used as bait to draw surviving Jedi Kanan Jarrus and his apprentice Ezra Bridger into the Inquisitor's clutches.
A natural and practical leader in the clone army, Cody was a good fit for General Kenobi, to whom he was particularly loyal. Cody's keen ability to strategize, combined with his fierce combat style in the heat of battle, earned him the respect of the Jedi, and of his fellow clones as well. He often worked with Captain Rex, with whom he became friends. Cody enjoyed a close relationship with Kenobi, often sharing a tension-busting joke with him during intense moments on the battlefield. When Darth Sidious gave Order 66, however, Cody's loyalty to Kenobi was eclipsed by his clone indoctrination, and he ordered his troops to fire on the Jedi.
The secret leader of the Geonosians, Karina dwelled in the catacombs beneath the Progate Temple, laying eggs, controlling an army of Geonosian drones, and giving orders to public Geonosian leaders such as Poggle the Lesser. When Poggle fled to the Temple, the Jedi followed and discovered Karina, who had captured Luminara Unduli—and now sought control of Jedi Knights.
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.
