- "Pure defense is inferior to a combination of defense and offense."
- — Luminara Unduli
Luminara had become a Master in the years prior to the Battle of Naboo. Like Offee, her previous Padawans had all been natives of Mirial, as their culture had a requirement that any children given to the Jedi Order were to be trained by Mirialan masters.
Luminara and Offee fought alongside each other on many occasions. On Ansion, with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, they foiled a plot by the Commerce Guild to force a secession of a vital world. Luminara and Barris were later part of the strike force to sent to rescue Obi-Wan and Anakin, and as a result fought in the Battle of Geonosis.
During the Clone Wars, she served as a Senior General; the Sector Army under her command included the 9th Assault Corps. Luminara's last mission alongside her Padawan was at Ilum , where they were able tostop a CIS attempt at destroying the Force Crystals that formed inside the cave. After this, and a similar mission on Drongar, Barriss ascended to the rank of Jedi Knight, and the two rarely crossed paths from then on.
She possessed power that very few Jedi would be able to overcome. She had amazing lightsaber skills, as she was a master of Form III. Not only were her lightsaber skills superb, but she had also trained herself to become so incredibly flexible that she could easily twist to evade almost any attack that she did not block with her green lightsaber. These skills were in tandem with her apprentice, Offee, who had long studied at her side.
Her lower lip was stained a permanent purplish-black, and a series of interlocking black diamond-shaped tattoos covered her chin, while more intricate markings covered her knuckle joints. These were Mirialan signs of her dedication to physical discipline. Her eyes were of an intense blue color, a contrast to her olive-colored skin, that gave the Jedi Master a serene, outworldly look.
Luminara was one of several Jedi sent to Kashyyyk following Separatistincursions into the area. Right before the battle of Kashyyyk, she and Jedi master Quinlan Vos were fighting droids, while out-numbered and out-gunned, a senario they would have died in if it wern't for Quinlan's old friend, Vilmarh Grahrk and the young Wookiee Chak. When the battle of Kashyyyk came, she was healing the wounded when the battle was nearing an end. The treacherous Order 66 was transmitted to the clone troopers in her squad and she was gunned down by the troopers under Commander Faie's command.
