Early Career

Stass Allie's early career as a Jedi was in the shadow of her cousin and Jedi Master Adi Gallia; she wanted to be known for something greater than just being Adi Gallia's cousin.

After having achieved the rank of Jedi Knight near 26 BBY, Stass Allie began to define herself from beneath the shadow of Gallia. Stass Allie was an experienced warrior, but preferred to focus on the development of her healing skills and yearned to join the Jedi Healers. She was eventually inducted into the Circle of Jedi Healers, later becoming an instructor herself, taking the young Barriss Offee under her wing.

Clone Wars

As Count Dooku's Separatist Crisis begun to unfurl the bonds of the Republic, Stass Allie served as an adviser to many high ranking government officials. When word reached the Jedi Order that Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker had been captured by the Separatists on Geonosis, Stass Allie left her advisory post to join the task force and aid in their rescue. She used her skills and technique to destroy many droids. She was one of the few Jedi to survive the massacre on Geonosis.

Thus began the Clone Wars. While Stass Allie wanted to focus on her healing abilities, she found herself becoming more and more involved in various military campaigns instead. When Master Gallia was killed by General Grievous at Boz Pity, Stass mourned over the loss of her cousin for some time.

By the time Coruscant fell under attack by the Separatists, Stass Allie had been chosen to replace her late cousin on the Jedi High Council and promoted to Jedi Master. She and Shaak Ti were assigned to find and protect the chancellor. This search led them to the Senate Building, where they ran into Senators Padmé Amidala, Bail Organa, and Mon Mothma. Allie lent the senators and C-3PO her airspeeder to escape in exchange for information about the Chancellor's whereabouts. The Jedi finally found him in his apartment in 500 Republica, surrounded by his aides and guards, urging him to take shelter. Palpatine, however, refused to leave. As the Jedi were about to convince him, General Grievous crashed through his floor-to-ceiling window. Allie and Ti were able to escape with the Chancellor, and led Grievous on a chase throughout the city, ending at the secure bunker. The droid general outwitted them, though, and while the two Jedi stayed at the building's entrance to defend it, Grievous made his way to the bunker, and killed all of Palpatine's guards, and took the Chancellor. The Jedi realized this deception, and ran to the Chancellor's rescue. However, they were too late, and were quickly subdued by Grievous.

Order 66

While preparing to lead clone reinforcements to Felucia to assist Aayla Secura and Barriss Offee in the struggle there, Stass was notified by Anakin Skywalker that she was to head to Saleucami immediately to finish what Generals Secura and Quinlan Vos had started on the planet.

As Allie patrolled the battlefields of Saleucami, the clone troopers accompanying her on speeder bikes executed Order 66. Clone Commander Neyo and his wingman opened fire on her speeder bike, sending the Jedi Master hurtling off her speeder and towards the ground, where she died in her bike's explosion. The remains of her speeder bike were scattered across the field as it was tossed by the explosion. She was never notified that Obi-Wan Kenobi defeated General Grievous on Utapau, thus avenging Adi Gallia.

When the Galactic Empire emerged, official records compiled by Sate Pestage stated that Allie was executed for planning to meet at a terrorist rendezvous on Saleucami.

Behind the scenes

Nina Fallon as Stass Allie

Stass Allie was originally going to be Adi Gallia, a Jedi Council member from The Phantom Menace. However, similarly to how Eeth Koth became Agen Kolar, after Gallia's role had to be recast from Gin Clarke to Lily Nyamwasa, it was decided that her appearance was different enough to become a different character, in spite of both women wearing Tholoth headdresses. Adi Gallia herself still makes an appearance in Attack of the Clones, since archive footage from Episode I featuring the Jedi Master was used as the template for a new Jedi Council scene. It is due to this confusion that publicity photos of Stass Allie feature her holding a blue lightsaber (like Adi Gallia), though she carries a green one in the film.

After Episode II, George Lucas himself decided that if an actor portraying a Human or near-Human Jedi was not available for Episode III, that Jedi would be replaced with a different character entirely. Nyamwasa thus returned, but when she was not available for pick-up shoots, Lucas broke his own rule and replaced her with not one but two actresses. She was portrayed in hologram form during the second Council scene by Tace Bayliss, and in her death scene by Nina Fallon. Nyamwasa was cut entirely, though she continues to be the canon representation of the character, appearing in the Visual Dictionaries, the action figure packaging and in all other media.
