"Jedi Master Belth Allusis, seven dozen of the Order's finest Knights, and four thousand of the Republic's strongest soldiers dug in to defend the shield generators…or die trying."

Belth Allusis was a male Human Jedi Master serving the Galactic Republic during the Great Galactic War between the Republic and the Sith Empire. In 3,671 BBY, Allusis was in charge of the Republic troops that defended the planet Bothawui against the overwhelming Sith forces. Although all of the Republic defenders, including Allusis, were killed, they managed to inflict heavy casualties upon the Sith, forcing them to retreat.

Biography

"Allusis and his men fell, but not before the Imperials were driven to retreat."
―Gnost-Dural — (audio)Listen (file info)

Belth Allusis was a Human male Jedi Master active during the Great Galactic War between the Galactic Republic and the resurgent Sith Empire. Since the beginning of the war in 3,681 BBY, the Empire had scored many victories, and eventually established its dominance in the Outer Rim region of the galaxy. In 3,671 BBY, the Sith turned their forces toward the Mid Rim and attempted to seize control of the planet Bothawui. However, a Republic fleet had been waiting for them above the planet, and the Sith attack was repelled. The Republic fleet was then pulled back from Bothawui, and only a small force led by Master Allusis remained behind to defend the planet against a possible Sith counterattack.[1]

The attack soon followed; Imperial battlecruisers from all around the galaxy moved in to capture Bothawui. However, the planet was protected by a high-powered planetary shield, which prevented the Sith from using orbital bombardment and forced them to initiate a ground assault instead. Soon, a fifty-thousand-strong force of Sith landed on the planet and attacked the shield generators, which were protected only by seven dozen of the Jedi Order's Knights and four thousand Republic soldiers, all commanded by Allusis. Despite being greatly outnumbered, the Republic troops put up a valiant fight; for each Republic soldier killed, the Empire paid with ten lives. During the battle, Allusis and his men developed unorthodox tactics, which—combined with the Imperial commanders' decision to send all of their troops directly into the assault—resulted in so many Sith losses that the Empire was forced to call in reinforcements.[1]

The last stand of Belth Allusis.

Eventually, however, most of the Republic defenders were killed, and only a handful of Jedi and soldiers remained. The survivors gathered near Master Allusis and prepared for a final stand. At that moment, the Imperial Grand Moff Zellos offered to spare Allusis if he and his forces surrendered. Drawing from the Force, Allusis and his soldiers did not accept the offer and fought to the last man. Although all of the Republic forces perished, the Empire had taken too many casualties and was forced to retreat from Bothawui.[1]

The last stand of "The Heroes of Bothawui"—as Allusis and his men became known—restored hope across the Republic[2] and served as a turning point in the war. The strategies developed by them helped the Republic to temporarily hold off the Sith advancement,[1] until the Sith allied with the Mandalorians four years later.[3] The Republic was eventually defeated and forced to sign the Treaty of Coruscant with the enemy.[4] In the aftermath of its signing, the keeper of the Jedi Archives, Kel Dor Jedi Master Gnost-Dural, documented the Battle of Bothawui in a holorecord.[1]

Personality and traits

"Neither pride nor foolhardiness drove the defenders' decision. They were guided by the Force. They had passed beyond the fear of death. Their glorious last stand will never be forgotten."
―Gnost-Dural — (audio)Listen (file info)

Belth Allusis was a courageous and selfless person, who was willing to defend Bothawui at all costs, even if it meant sacrificing his own life and the lives of his comrades. According to Gnost-Dural, Allusis's refusal to surrender was guided by the Force and was not driven by pride.[1] The bravery of Master Allusis and his fellow defenders of Bothawui was remembered in many years to come and was regarded as being the key factor in restoring hope of the Republic forces and rallying them to fight the enemy with renewed courage.[2]

Powers and abilities

Belth Allusis was a Force-sensitive individual, who trained with the Jedi Order around the time of the Great Galactic War, and by 3,671 BBY he had risen to the rank of Jedi Master. He was put in command of all of the Republic forces on Bothawui, with whom he created and employed several unorthadox tactics, resulting in heavy Sith losses during the battle. During the battle on Bothawui, Allusis utilized a yellow-bladed lightsaber.[1]

Behind the scenes

Belth Allusis appeared in the fifth and the sixth installment of the Galactic Timeline, a series of videos that serve as a tie-in to the upcoming massively multiplayer online role-playing video game Star Wars: The Old Republic. The videos are presented as holorecords made by Jedi Master Gnost-Dural, who is portrayed by voice actor Lance Henriksen.
