"Baby Ludi"'s mother, Jonava Billane with a picture of the disputed Baby Ludi.

The "Baby Ludi" custody case was a dispute between the Jedi Council and Jonava Billane over the custody of Aris-Del Wari, a Jedi youngling in the months before the Clone Wars.



After the groundquake of Ord Thoden, a team of Jedi rescue workers found the Force-sensitive child in the ruins of the Ord Thoden capital Domitree. Presuming the child's parents to be dead, the Jedi named the child Aris-Del Wari and decided to train her in the ways of the Force.

When Jonava Billane had recovered and learned the the child had survived, she traveled to Coruscant in order to reunite with her daughter.

The case

Jonava Billane petitioned to be reunited with Baby Ludi. However, the Jedi Council rejected her petition arguing that they would not give her back her child—now named "Aris-Del Wari"—because it was too dangerous now that her mind had been opened to the Force.

The case went public, gaining her many supporters Galaxy-wide. She would eventually appear on the Eriadu-based talk show Essence to tell her story. Her particular episode was seen by over 25 billion sentient viewers and gained her much support. During the show she broke into tears four times, gaining even more sympathy Galaxy-wide than before. She thanked all her supporters and also revealed that she had authorized a full-length holo feature based on her story.

Jonava seemed to eventually lose interest in the case, focusing more on the holo feature that would tell the story of her and "Baby Ludi". When Ludi was moved to the Jedi Training Center on Kamparas, Jonava was too busy reviewing casting auditions for the holo feature to comment on it publicly.


The case of "Baby Ludi" sparked considerable anti-Jedi feelings throughout the galaxy.
