Jedi spotlight/Luminara Unduli

Jedi Master Luminara Unduli was a trusted advisor to the Jedi Council and the Galactic Republic. A fearless leader within the order without being a Member of the Jedi Council, what made her dope was the fact she turned her body into a living weapon so you can imagine how she was with a lightsaber. They say her skills with a saber was on the level and grace of count Dooku, she preferred form III/Soresu technique for she believe if one mastered this style you could become unbeatable. She was accompanied almost everywhere by her loyal Padawan Barris Offie, and while in battle they move together, synchronizing every attack.

for More info on this jedi master read the paper back novel The approaching Storm and she was featured in Star wars Republic series comics and in clone wars cartoon series. She was from the cold Desert planet of Mirial, note her padawan was from the same planet hence this is why they shared similar tattoos which is native to there planet's customs.

Sadly, she was killed brutally by a AT-RT on the Wookiee world of Kashyyyk, when Order 66 was executed in the movie Revenge of the Sith. What many people do not know is that she was portrayed by a Woman of Color
Mary Oyaya (name means joy in Yoruba) who is from the town of Mombasa Kenya, sista is a model and has two Master Degrees in international relations, She aspired to be a Diplomat like her parents who work for the UN as diplomats, instead she played a jedi known for her diplomatic abilities, she also studied martial art of Chinese sword fightin....

Oh by the way hit up her website www.maryOyaya.com
