40 BBY, Mirial
|Chronological and political information|
Barriss Offee was a female Mirilian Jedi Padawan during the Clone Wars. She was the padawan of Luminara Unduli and a close friend of Ahsoka Tano. Near the end of the war, in 20 BBY, Barriss believed that the Jedi Order were villains of the Clone Wars and warmongers, so she conceived a plot to attack the Order at the heart of it, in the Jedi Temple. She hired Letta Turmond to feed her husband, Jackar, Nano-droids, which would cause him to blow up when he was in the Jedi Temple's hangar bay. She killed Letta and framed Ahsoka for the murder, but her plan was soon discovered by Anakin Skywalker and she was defeated while dueling with him. Skywalker then arrived with several Temple Guards, who transported Barriss to Ahsoka's trial. Ahsoka was freed and all charges dropped against her. Barriss was then convicted and executed for her crimes.
