Jedi spotlight/Adi Gaillia

Jedi Master Adi Gaillia is a member of the Jedi Council who is mostly used as negotiator which is what she specializes in and gathering information. Adi was born to wealthy Corellian parents, and traveled to Coruscant to begin her training in her infancy, She has an vast knowledge of the workings of both Republic and Jedi affairs, and has developed a vast information network, with most of her contacts concentrated on Coruscant, but we are told in the obsession series she also have connection amongst space pirates and was hanging with them, as you can guest she is Corellian (Han solo is corellian and was often called a pirate) .

It was this sister who set off the phantom menace Episode I, it was her who warned Chancellor Valorum and the Senate of the Trade Federation's blockade of Naboo, and urged him to request aid from the Jedi Council. In addition to her investigation skills, she was a master of form six, but a modified version, a unique lightsaber combat style, which holds the weapon with the blade pointed towards the ground, held at the side and angled slightly to the rear, facilitating long, sweeping strikes.

She was strong in the force and feared for her use with a blade, when the jedi was sent to hunt aurra sing down mace windu gave her props for her skill and her smarts, in the last days leading up to revenge of the sith. she faced general grievous and became one with the force. A lot of star wars fan confuse her with her cousin who was also promoted to the jedi council during episode III but Adi died in obsession series comics by dark horse, it was her cousin who was in revenge of the sith and her name was Stass Allie, I guess even in Sci Fi we all look alike, they were both known for there beauty and piercing blue eyes and dark exotic skin, Oh well, I don't know what they were thinking with the blue eyes...

About the Sista that played her in the movie:

Gin Clarke was first spotted by French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier whilst on a trip in London. Soon her tall athletic figure and beautifully shaped bald head were gracing catwalks all over Europe. Her look was copied by a number of young, black models, especially in the UK where many bald black women modeled for UK shows in the mid-90s.She no longer does but has appeared in the movies , the latest Star War films and music videos. She still rocks the Bald look, man he should have let her rock it for the movie...

It's too bad they never allowed her to actually say anything in any of the movies. None of the female Jedi get to speak.
