|Chronological and political information|
Aayla Fortuna was a Twi'leki Jedi Master of the Una Clan on Ryloth. She was born as the daughter of Tutso and Oola Fortuna, members of Ryloth's Clan Council. She was found by Jedi Padawan Quinlan Vos in 39 BBY while on a mission to meet with Clan Secura's Pol Secura. She, along with Pol's niece, were sold to a local Hutt crime lord so that they could be safe from any possible threat. But when the Hutt's wampa broke loose and killed his aide, the wampa was about to kill the Hutt and the two young girls and their mothers when Vos had came in, rescued them, and killed the wampa. She, along with Secura, was taken to the Jedi Temple for training. She was also one of the few survivors of the Great Jedi Purge.
