"This girl—Aayla—she called me through the Force. She helped calm me in battle with the wampa. Could she be…"
"A Jedi? Perhaps."
Quinlan Vos and Tholme

Aayla Secura, born Aaylas'ecura, was a Rutian Twi'lek Jedi Master in the later days of the Republic, who served with distinction as a General during the Clone Wars. She served as a Padawan under the tutelage of Quinlan Vos, and later, Vos's own master Tholme. Both Secura and Vos survived a brush with the dark side early in her Jedi training, though she later proved herself worthy of knighthood.

After Secura was promoted to the level of Jedi Knight, the Clone Wars broke out, and she was one of many Jedi to participate in the Battle of Geonosis. She served in various campaigns, surviving such infamous battles as those on Hypori and Kamino. Indeed, such were her achievements that Secura was promoted to the level of Jedi Master near to the beginning of the conflict.

As a Jedi Master, Aayla Secura led the Republic war efforts at Quell and was instrumental in the defense of Maridun. However, despite her undoubted prowess, Secura met her end during the instigation of Order 66 on Felucia, though because she was so respected by her troops, she was granted a quick death. Master Secura was remembered for generations by the people of the worlds she had helped during her life, and stories of her were known to have become part of the culture of many such people.

Early life

Young Secura and her savior.

Secura was always strong with the Force, and at a young age was discovered by the Jedi during a mission on Ryloth undertaken by the young Quinlan Vos, the Kiffar Padawan of Jedi Master Tholme. The very young Secura was kept with the Twi'lek slaves of the local Hutt to be safe from any possible threat. She was still Lon Secura's niece, but the wampa guard of the Hutt went on a rampage, and the little Secura was in peril. Fortunately she was sensed and saved by Quinlan Vos. He and Secura had a strong connection with each other through the Force. Vos persuaded master Tholme to test Secura on Coruscant for Jedi training where she passed the tests.[6]

She was a skilled swordsman; she studied and used Form IV of lightsaber combat. She also studied the Jar'Kai form, using a green and a blue lightsaber.[7] She would also occasionally use a violet lightsaber.[4] She had a good relationship with a young Twi'lek Padawan named Xiaan Amersu, to whom Secura gave a Heart of Fire as a gift.[8] She also had a very close relationship with Jedi Kit Fisto, one which pushed the limits of the Jedi Code at times.[9]

Secura once learned a very valuable lesson when her dear pet T'da 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, it was on Felucia that she buried T'da—a planet which she would return to toward the end of her life.[10]

Padawan Secura and her Master, Quinlan Vos, undertook many successive missions together. They rescued a little princess from the Skyboat Pirates of Xoman Free, faced the Terbeasts of Ogden Minor, solved the Mystery of the Lodi on Solibus IV, and even witnessed Sebulba, a Dug, threatening a Gungan on Tatooine.[11] But when Vos and Secura were assigned on a mission to Ryloth to investigate the sources of glitteryll, all went wrong. The two were captured and drugged. Secura and her master suffered heavy amnesia. She was taken by her uncle Pol Secura, who had to feed her more glitteryll every day because her spirit kept reasserting itself. She forgot that she was a Jedi; she forgot she had a master and had Force powers.[4]

One day a strange man came to Pol Secura's quarters, looking for his "Padawan" Aayla Secura. He showed Secura her lightsaber, but she still couldn't remember anything. After a while, when the man figured out that Pol Secura was behind the drugging he came back for him. When Secura tried to rescue her uncle, she accidentally Force pushed him off the balcony. She blamed the stranger, Quinlan Vos.[4]

Brush with the dark side

Aayla being seduced to the dark side of the Force by Volfe Karkko.

Secura wanted revenge on the man who killed her uncle. She hid herself on a pirate ship en route to Kiffex. On that planet she discovered and released Dark Jedi Volfe Karkko from his stasis field. She gave in to the dark side of the Force and was willing to help the Anzati Dark Jedi. He gave her command of his Anzati minions and let her hunt down the Jedi on Kiffex. Karkko needed them alive to regain his strength; he needed to suck their "Jedi-soup." But first he needed to feed himself and his Anzati. Secura took the Anzati and stormed a local stronghold. There she faced off against Quinlan Vos, Tholme, and Master Zao and got away with their captured people. Vos followed her and reached the prison of Karkko. Again she fought against her former master, but then she at last realized her true identity. At that moment Karkko used Force lightning to knock her out. When she woke up, she found Karkko dead and later on she was assigned to Master Tholme, Vos's former master. Vos pictured himself as "a leaf blown forth by the wind" and left Kiffex, going where the Force told him to go.[5]

Ascension to Knighthood

Secura and Tholme returned to Coruscant and, like Vos, she was re-trained in the Jedi Temple. Master Plo Koon agreed to use his telepathy to guide Secura as she arranged her newly-recovered memories. She also learned of the Stark Hyperspace War and met the veteran Jace Dallin.[12]

In 29 BBY, Secura went undercover in the Twi'lek clan Fenn. She discovered that the clan's leader, Ro Fenn, was planning an attack on the Secura clan's heir Nat Secura. She informed Tholme and hurried to her master, ready to help him. He faced off against two Nikto Morgukai, was defeated but still managed to slip on their ship. Unfortunately he was discovered and imprisoned. Secura followed Vilmarh Grahrk, who was in league with the Nikto, and his ship Inferno, but lost them.[6]

The Force led her to a junkyard on Ord Mantell. There she found her former master, Vos and helped him fight against bounty hunters. She explained everything to Quinlan, and the two decided to rescue Nat Secura and Master Tholme. They traced Grahrk and made him tell where the two Morgukai went. Quickly they set course to Kintan, the home planet of the Nikto, and faced off against the two Morgukai Bok and his father, Tsyr.[6]

Vos and Secura on Ord Mantell

The Nikto escaped Ord Mantell and went to the fortress of the Twi'lek Kh'aris Fenn, who was behind all this misery all the time, and waited for the Jedi to arrive. The two Jedi broke in the fortress and inside they confronted the Nikto again. Aayla Secura was to rescue Nat Secura and Tholme, Vos would fight the Nikto.[6]

Secura reached the dungeon, defeated the torture droid AX/RX, freed Tholme and Nat and went to Vos to help him. Vos had already beheaded Tsyr but he was smacked to the ground by Bok. Secura saved Vos's life by fighting Bok before he could deliver the final blow. She wounded the Nikto, taking his right hand, but did not kill him. Bok let himself fall hundreds of meters in order to keep his honor. The three Jedi and Nat survived. They returned the young Twi'lek boy to his father, but, unfortunately, Fenn escaped from Ryloth to Count Dooku's hidden stronghold. Ro Fenn was sent into the Bright Lands, the side of Ryloth that was baked in eternal sunlight.[6]

Back on Coruscant, Secura and Vos were both promoted by the Jedi High Council. Secura was granted the rank of Jedi Knight and Vos a Jedi Master.[6]

Clone Wars (22 BBY–19 BBY)

Aayla Secura during the Clone Wars
"Aayla Secura made a point of seeing us off personally, calling us the bravest soldiers she had ever met. It's a good thing we were wearing helmets, because none of us could bear to look her in the eye."
― Diary of the 501st, before Order 66

Battle of Geonosis

Secura was in the Jedi Temple at the time of the Battle of Geonosis and thus was a member of the 212 Jedi task force sent to Geonosis to rescue two Jedi and the Senator Padmé Amidala held captive. She was one of the few survivors of the battle between the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Jedi that ensued in the Petranaki arena and then led her own squad of clone troopers into battle. Thus was sparked the conflict known as the Clone Wars.[13]

Mission to Corellia

Like almost every other fully trained Jedi in the Order, Secura became a Jedi General. Eight standard days after the Battle of Geonosis, she was sent on a mission to intercept Techno Union scientist Ratri Tane, who had fled to Corellia with the files and prototype of new droid circuitry, along with fellow Caamasi Jedi Ylenic It'kla.[14]

Infiltrating the Wheel

Less than a standard month later, she infiltrated the Wheel, posing as a down-on-her-luck mechanic named Jayzaa, in order to locate Quinlan Vos, who hadn't reported from his undercover mission since the Battle of Geonosis. Together, they secured a copy of the plans of the impending Confederacy attack on Kamino. With the help of Khaleen Hentz and Tookarti they kept crime boss Zenex from stealing back the plans. After killing Zenex and his henchmen, Vos told Secura that he was going to set up spy networks for the republic.[15] Using the intelligence they had collected, the Galactic Republic was able to fend off the attack on the rainy planet. In the Battle of Kamino, Secura defended the cloning facilities in her Jedi starfighter.[16]

Battle of Kamino

She would remain on the planet, alongside Master Kit Fisto, and save the facilities once again, this time from sabotage from within—a Kaminoan nano-virus meant to wipe out the clone troopers. During the last minutes of the battle against super battle droids (under the control of a double-crossing Kaminoan), Secura fell into the waters of Kamino and nearly drowned before being saved by Fisto. As an amphibian, the Nautolan was able to absorb oxygen from the water and breathe it into Secura to help her breathe. When they were up on the surface again, they killed the double-crossing Kaminoan using the virus by tricking him into injecting it into himself. When Fisto saved Secura, it marked a significant point in the lives of both Jedi. The event started a relationship between the two that pushed the limits of the Jedi Code. It was similar to the relationship of Obi-Wan Kenobi and Siri Tachi. It was more than "breathing for both of them" to Secura and Fisto, especially by the manner in which it was done.[17]

Aayla Secura fighting against Grievous on Hypori.

Battle of Hypori

Later into the war, Secura ascended to the rank of Jedi Master.[18] Four months after Geonosis, the Twi'lek Jedi participated in the Battle of Hypori, where she was one of the Jedi who survived their first encounter with General Grievous. Grievous gripped Secura and the dead Tarr Seirr with his feet and sent both flying into the ceiling. She suffered grave wounds in the attack, and only survived due to the intervention of a squad of ARC troopers.[19] It was after this mission that she was assigned to the 327th Star Corps, and later forged a close relationship with Commander Bly.

Battle of Quell

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, but it didn't work and seriously injured him, but 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. Secura told Admiral Wulf Yularen to take the Resolute up above, before they took the destroyer with them.

Battle of Maridun

Aayla Secura on Maridun.

After a treacherous trip through hyperspace, the Jedi and the few clones in their company crash landed on the planet Maridun. After they landed, Secura and Tano took Bly and the three remaining troopers (except for Rex, who guarded Anakin during the night) to look for help. They found a drawing of a tree, so they looked for it, but some giant pods fell down, and they are dragged away by, as Secura said, "someone or something intelligent enough to find a use for the pods". They followed the tracks and were attacked by a pair of mastiff phalones and only Bly, Tano and Secura came out alive. The next morning, they found a village of Lurmen who had settled on the planet, far away from the war. The village elder, Tee Watt Kaa refused to aid them, fearing that destruction would break the peace they already had. However, at Tano's request, he did give them medical supplies and had his son, Wag Too help deliver them. But he requested that only one Jedi take the supplies and that Bly should follow. The Jedi agreed to this, Tano and Bly went to bring back Skywalker, and the injured Jedi was healed.

Later, an army of droids, led by General Lok Durd, landed on Maridun and upon meeting Tee Watt Kaa, claimed the planet for the Separatists. The Jedi and the clones decided to leave the village, or else the droids would have killed the Lurmen. They left, but decided to steal a Separatist ship to get off of Maridun. They were followed by a spy droid, but they destroyed it before it could send news of their plans to the Separatists. The team climbed a tree and saw a Separatist fort and Durd testing a new weapon that destroyed life forms, but not machines. After the successful test, the Separatist army headed for the Lurmen village. The Jedi and the clones mounted a raid on the fort that night and stole a ship and two shield generators. They then headed back to the village. They offered their help, which Tee Watt Kaa turned down, but they then barricaded the village anyway. The Separatists reached the village and tried using their new weapon, but the shield generators stopped the effects of it. They then sent the droids out. Secura and the others obliterated the first wave, but the second group got past them and destroyed the shield generators. Secura and Tano took care of them while Skywalker destroyed the new weapon. After the battle, Wag Too thanked the Jedi for saving the village, and Kaa admitted that the Lurmen owe the Jedi their lives. Finally, three Jedi cruisers appeared and picked up Secura, Tano, Skywalker, Rex, and Bly.

Mission to Alzoc III

Aayla Secura and Luminara Unduli face off Asajj Ventress.

Secura went with Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and Clone Commanders Bly and CC-1004, nicknamed "Gree," to investigate the planet Alzoc III, where Separatist activity had been reported by the Hutt crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure. The Republic squad took several All Terrain Tactical Enforcers and headed for the coordinates of the location provided by Jabba. Along the way, the walkers were forced to scale a vertical cliff, and when a walker's path became blocked by a bulk of ice, Bly immediately ordered his men to blast it. Secura, however, ordered to hold, stating that the blast could lead to the collapse of the entire cliff, and proceeded to remove the obstacle in a more delicate way. Upon arriving at their destination, both the Jedi and the clone troopers witnessed a crash site of a large capital ship and were stunned by the view of huge masses of ice and numerous starship parts floating freely in the air. Deciding to investigate the unusual phenomena, the clone troopers used their jetpacks to reach what remained of the ship's hangar, while the Jedi followed them by using the Force to navigate through debris. Rendezvousing at the hangar, the group was attacked by a Vulture droid, and it became apparent that the crash site attracted Separatist interest as well. Unduli and Secura quickly defeated the droid and ordered the clones to scout ahead and find the ship's data recorder, while they themselves engaged the battle droids and followed by an alternate route.[20]

After reaching the remains of the ship's bridge, Gree began to slice the vessel's data recorder, while the Jedi and the clone troopers protected him from the attacking droids. After successfully neutralizing the battle droids, Gree was able to access the record of the ship's final moments. It became apparent that an individual had used a Telgorn dropship to board a Munificent-class star frigate carrying two classified weapons, stole one of them, and then departed shortly before the frigate was hit by an explosion. The vessel had then crashed on the planet, where the weapon created a gravity anomaly. Soon, it was also revealed that the Dark Acolyte Asajj Ventress had already visited the crash site and set the remains of the frigate for self-destruct. Unduli and Secura ordered the clone troopers to safety and then briefly dueled Ventress. Secura and Unduli trapped the Dark Jedi under the bulk of ice before leaving the crash site and reporting to the Jedi High Council.[20]

Mission to Devaron

Twenty-seven standard weeks into the war, Secura investigated Separatist raids on Republic supply lines along the Corellian Trade Spine as part of a Jedi task force of masters Tholme, T'ra Saa, Kit Fisto, and An'ya Kuro. When the headquarters of the raiders were pinpointed to the planet Devaron, Secura went undercover as Tuulaa Doneeta, the spoiled daughter of a Twi'lek shipping baron. This way, she managed to infiltrate Senator Vien'sai'Malloc's apartments as her guest, with Masters Tholme ("Miles Croft"), and Kuro ("Saba") as her servants. The Senator was the one who backed the raiders, hoping to play both sides in the war. She had hired bounty hunter Aurra Sing, an ex-Jedi, to make sure nobody learned of her plans.[9]

The Jedi on Devaron were Sing's next targets, and after caving in her former Master and Tholme, she ambushed Secura. The Twi'lek survived and attacked Aurra. The two fought, and Secura was able to win by hitting the bounty hunter where it hurt: her feelings of abandonment. Aurra reacted by unleashing her rage, but thus became disorientated, and Aayla cut off the antenna implant—installed by the hunter's Anzati mentors—that allowed Sing to feed off the fear of her prey. As Sing was enveloped in anger, Secura was at peace, and turned the former Jedi over to local authorities. She eventually ended up on the penal colony of Oovo IV. Then, Secura rescued Tholme and Kuro and provided intelligence she had gathered about the raider headquarters to Fisto and Saa and the raiders were dissolved in a battle between them and Republic forces.[9]

Mission to Endor

"Do you have any Jedi skills whatsoever?"
―A sarcastic battle droid, to Aayla Secura

During the war, Master Secura and Commander Bly investigated a deserted Separatist outpost in the Endor system. After discovering the base to be empty, (and finding remains of countless clone troopers and battle droids) Secura went out scouting, during which she encountered a lone battle droid. While removing its appendages, Secura was caught unaware by the native Ewok people and was shot with a tranquilizer dart.[21]

Secura awoke within an Ewok treehouse, and using the battle droid as a translator, learnt that the natives believed her to be a forest spirit. As a spirit, it was her duty to vanquish the Beast in the Mouth of the Mountain. Secura, taking the droid along, complied. Reaching the cave, the Jedi Master tripped on a pile of bones, alerting the Beast to her presence. The Beast quickly impaled the battle droid with its claw, leaving Secura free to use the Force on collapsing parts of the ceiling, forcing them down upon the monster. Having fulfilled her duty as the Ewok's spirit, Secura returned to her Republic gunship, where Bly was waiting. Dismissing her commander's worries, the pair, along with their squadron, headed to Felucia.[21]

Order 66

"When her death came, I hope it was quick. She earned that much."
―Unknown 501st clone trooper
Aayla Secura is killed by her troops during the execution of Order 66 on Felucia.

Following the siege of Saleucami, Secura and her troops were sent to Felucia to help Knight Barriss Offee uncover a plot to poison Felucia's water supply.[22] There, Secura had also gained the respect of the 501st Legion in the time they served with her.[7] After freeing Offee and her new Padawan Zonder, Secura and the Padawans Ekria and Drake Lo'gaan were able to discover that Presidente Shu Mai of the Commerce Guild had arranged the poisoning of Felucia's water supply.

While Offee took a squad to Har Gau, Secura and Commander Bly went to Niango.[22] While preparing to engage an oncoming onslaught of droids, Secura glanced to the skies as a Felucian bird flew overhead. Standing behind his friend and commanding officer, the ever-loyal Commander Bly received word from Supreme Chancellor ordering him to carry out Order 66. Before the Twi'lek could ignite her lightsaber she was struck by blasterfire from behind; her troops continued to fire at her body repeatedly after she had fallen to the ground. Soon after, the AT-TE walker that was closest to her fired at Barriss Offee, making her the next victim of the Great Jedi Purge.[2]

Legacy

"They believe you are a forest spirit…"
Anonymous B1 battle droid

When the Galactic Empire emerged, official records compiled by Sate Pestage stated that Aayla Secura and Barriss Offee were both executed because they were plotting to poison Felucia's water supply, although it was really the Separatists.[23]

However, despite the attempts of the Empire, Aayla Secura was remembered by the peoples of the worlds she aided, in some cases merging with pre-existing goddess myths or historical figures. Even as late as 40 ABY, the descendants of such worlds were still writing fictitious accounts of her life.[24]

Personality and traits

Yularen: "Are all Jedi this reckless?"
Secura: "Just the good ones."
―Republic Admiral Yularen and Aayla Secura
Aayla Secura was an empathic and higly intelligent Jedi but was also impulsive and somewhat mischievous. She was a good leader and a skilled tactitian and her quick thinking earned her the respect of many Clone Troopers during the Clone Wars. She was close friends with Commander Bly.
Aayla Secura's lightsaber

Secura had a brief romantic relationship with Kit Fisto but she was dedicated to the Jedi Order and decided the Order was more important than her relationship with Fisto. She also appeared to have a close bond with Quinlan Vos, at least before he turned to the dark side, because she mentioned that he had been like a father to her.

Powers and abilities

"The Force has made us strong."
―Aayla Secura

Aayla Secura was trained as a Jedi Guardian,[25] leading her to focus more on the physical aspect of the Force, becoming an impressively skilled fighter. She mastered the fourth form of lightsaber combat, Ataru, and had some skill in Form V, as well as being a user of Jar'Kai.[7] Thanks to the training of Vos and Tholme, Aayla was very skilled in stealth and infiltration. Aayla also had some skill with Force Cloak,a hard to learn skill that some masters couldn't complete.[9] She was also known to use her beauty and Force powers to seduce people into giving information.[26]

Behind the scenes

Aayla Secura was originally created for the Expanded Universe by artist Jan Duursema and writer John Ostrander. After seeing a piece of cover art of the character, Lucas decided to place her in Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, making Secura one of the few C-canon characters that made it into the films. In the films, she is portrayed by actress Amy Allen. However, the character's appearances in the films are brief, and she sees most of her action in Expanded Universe material.

The painting by Jon Foster that secured Secura's place in the Star Wars saga.

She is voiced by Jennifer Hale in the Clone Wars TV series. It is noted that Jennifer gives Aayla a slight French-type accent in Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Director Dave Filoni wanted Aayla Secura to have something slightly different for her voice, resembling a post World War II veteran dialogue.

Her surname came from Nat Secura, originally introduced in the short story Of the Day's Annoyances: Bib Fortuna's Tale from Tales from Jabba's Palace. The two eventually appeared together in Rite of Passage. Writer John Ostrander originally wanted to kill Secura in Twilight, but was convinced by Jan Duursema's daughter to let her live.[27]

Secura is also depicted in the game Star Wars: Battlefront II as having two lightsabers —a green one and a blue one (although she has blue and purple sabers in the cutscenes and the PSP version), despite the fact that in Attack of the Clones she can be seen fighting with a single blue lightsaber during the Battle of Geonosis, and in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, she can be seen carrying one lightsaber in her hand and another on her belt.

Secura is one of the few Jedi that does not wear traditional robes, most likely due to her conceptual origins in the Expanded Universe. It is possible that this is due to the fact that she is a Twi'lek, as Twi'lek females traditionally wore less clothing. She is seen wearing a Jedi robe as a child though.

In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (video game) Aayla makes appearance in the Wii and PSP-exclusive duel mode.[28] and is voiced by Kari Wahlgren. Also, if AAYLA is entered as a cheat code, the Aayla Secura skin is available for use.

In Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (video game) all concept art can be unlocked by entering AAYLASECURA as a cheat code.

Although her clothing was practical, Aayla was not devoid of ornamentation as this ornate belly button jewelry illustrated.

Sold into slavery by her uncle at a very early age, she was eventually found at the age of four by the Jedi padawan, Quinlan Vos; who removed her from Ryloth to the Jedi Temple, where she was found to be Force-sensitive. When she was ten years old, Quinlan, who had since been knighted, took her as his padawan learner.

At this point she had forgotten her past, and overlooked the unescapable implications of being a Twi'lek female in a galaxy which inevitably saw them as sex objects, despite having been warned about it in the detached manner of the classroom. She would face down this attitude for the first time during a firefight she and her Master engaged in when she was only eleven. At that time their opponent's crude remarks would shock her to the point that it was only her Master's fighting skills that got them out of the situation alive. Later she would harden to such attitudes and even take advantage of them.

One of the defining times in Aayla's life happened when she was twelve years old, and witness to the arrival of two refugee Twi'lek slaves at the Jedi Temple, Loss'anamersu and her Force-sensitive daughter Xiaan. Because of her knowledge of Twi'leki, she was assigned to tutor Xiaan and teach her Basic. Xiaan's accounts of her life as a slave would drive home to Aayla how lucky she had been to be rescued from that life and to have been able to grow up with a basic sense of respect for herself and self-worth.

It was also during this time that she would first meet and later fall in love with Kit Fisto, who was assigned to act as language teacher and interpretor for Loss'anamersu. Both her friendship with him and her friendship would Xiaan would last her entire life. Kit and Aayla eventually married secretly and conceived one son, Hapana Fisto, who died in a miscarriage.

When Loss'anamersu's testimony would lead to prosecution of several elite merchants from the Outer Rim, Aayla would attend the trial, accompanying Xiaan. There, in front of considerable crowds, Loss'anamersu would have cause to indicate Aayla as what she hoped her daughter would become. For many years, this would be the proudest moment of Aayla's life.

It would remain so, in fact, until shortly before her death in 19 BBY, when, in an interlude between fighting Separatists, she would lead a raid on a slave transport, one with unfortunate results, as the captain chose to go down fighting, and take all of his slaves with him. However, one, a Force-sensitive toddler Twi'lek female, survived, and Aayla would take her back to the Temple and hand her over to the cresh after giving her the name of Cerni'olanga. It is speculated that, had they lived, she, like her Master, would have eventually taken the girl she had saved as her own padawan. Sadly, Cerni Olanga met her end at the hands of Darth Vader.

After hearing of her beloved husband's murder by the Chancellor, Aayla planned to leave Felucia for Coruscant, but was shot down by clones. However, Aayla and Kit were both secretly given a double Jedi funeral by Yoda on Dagobah, reuniting the two lovers at last.

"Cerulean" Continuity

During the Battle of Salecumai, Commander Bly, who held a high respect for his Jedi General, began to realize that perhaps he couldn't bring himself to execute Order 66; the traitorous feeling was finalized when he had helped Aayla stitch up a wound in her shoulder. She had felt Bly's feelings of confusion and attraction, and had acted upon them, forgetting her Jedi Code for a brief moment when she kissed him, then quickly apologized. It was then that Bly realized he couldn't kill her, and had devised a plan to fake her death when the time came, gathering together four of his best Clone troopers... Kex, Jaing, Booster, and Silas... to let them in on the plan; when Order 66 was to be executed, they would be the ones to "execute" Aayla, setting their blasters on a high stun setting to incapacitate her, then smuggle her unconscious body inside a spare suit of Clone Trooper armor with the fabricated story that her remains were incinerated by napalm missiles.

Aayla was later resuscitated on Kamino, where she was given the news of the virtual decimation of the Jedi Knights. Devastated by the news, she was given time to recover from her wounds, both physical and emotional, on Kamino, posing as a twi'lek slave girl owned by a retired Republic soldier. But when her strength was back, Aayla had decided to set out to try to find survivors. Returning to Coruscant, she discovered a young Cathar Padawan named Briarra Caalb, rescuing her from Clone Troopers out to kill her. From there, the two had sought to find a place to hide away during the incursion of the First Galactic Empire, attempting to find refuge on Tatooine, then Geonosis, and aided by Bly and his four Clone Troopers, who had all severed ties with the Empire out of loyalty to the twi'lek Jedi.

Aayla Secura still lives, despite the Empire's claims that she is dead. Her goal is to continue to survive until the Empire has fallen; her promise to Briarra. It will remain to be seen if Aayla can indeed see the eventual Return of the Jedi.

Imperial New Republic continuity

within the reality/timeline of Empire of The New Republic Aayla did survive the Clone Wars and managed to escape with an elite squad of ARC Troopers still loyal to the Republic. Many years later just as her "Cerulean" counterpart was secretly still fighting against the empire. However several years after the empires fall it was discovered by Luke Skywalker that she had given birth to a daughter named Phonea'ceura whom she had hidden away for several years. Although Luke had tried for many years to find who her father was but his searching seemed in vain. Although there was some speculation as to who her father it would be several years until the true identity of her father was known.
