Fallen Jedi
The Fallen Jedi were the type of Jedi who embraced the Dark Side of the Force and renounced the Jedi Order's principles and restrictions. While some Jedi turned to the Dark Side due to well-meaning but ultimately misguided intentions, others embraced their baser passions and utilized the Dark Side for selfish goals.

Appearances: The Clone Wars

"I will not be undermined by creatures bred in some laboratory!"

Pong Krell was a Besalisk Jedi Master during the final years of the Galactic Republic. During the Clone Wars, Krell held the rank of Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic and took over leading the 501st from Anakin during the Battle of Umbara. As the battle progressed, his reckless tactics led to ever-escalating conflicts between him and the Clone Troopers under his command. The Clone Troopers soon discovered that he was trying to lose the battle, having fallen to the Dark Side and planning on defecting to the Separatists.


  • Arc Villain: He is the main antagonist of the Umbara arc. The whole time he has been secretly working to undermine the Republic's effort to capture the planet.
  • Asshole Victim: No one objected to Dogma's shooting of him. Although, it did catch everyone off guard.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: An accurate summary of his strategy. Although, this is at least partially because he's a traitor and so trying to screw things up for the Republic.
  • Ax-Crazy: It really shows once he reveals his true colors, taking pleasure in killing many Clone Troopers up close and personal, both to help the Separatists and for his own sadistic amusement.
  • Badass Baritone: He has a very deep, bass voice.
  • Badass Beard: He has a trimmed, pointed one that doesn't manage to cover his massive, frog-like jaw.
  • Bastard Understudy: He wanted to become Dooku's apprentice once he defected to the Separatists. Stopping the Republic from capturing Umbara would've been his ticket.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a beard, and proves to be quite evil.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Downplayed. Krell is first shown showing respect toward Anakin but as soon as he leaves, he waste no time demeaning the Clones, but still comes off as a Jerk with a Heart of Gold. However, the reveal of his Face–Heel Turn is not as shocking given his earnest hostility to the Clones.
  • Blood Knight: His tactics are extremely aggressive, and at one point while fighting Rex's group, Krell deliberately puts away his lightsabers in favour of killing several Clone Troopers with his bare hands.
  • Call-Forward: When the Clone Troopers finally turn on him, he says "It's treason, then", which is exactly what Palpatine will say to the Jedi Council when they try and arrest him in Revenge of the Sith. Both Krell and Palpatine play a similar game, pitting different sides- including his own- against one another, trying to kill as many of his own allies as possible, all in a bid for power, and both being Darksiders pretending to be on the side of good, though Krell is much less talented / interested in hiding his true nature.
  • The Chessmaster: A small-scale version, but his efforts at playing the Clone Troopers are highly effective, especially when he sets two battalions against each other.
  • Control Freak: He has no tolerance for having his orders disobeyed or defied, even if he (ostensibly) benefits from the result.
  • Death by Irony:
    • It's hinted that he thinks the reason the Jedi will lose the Clone Wars is because the Clone Troopers are incompetent. Aside from being completely wrong about this, Krell himself is killed by a Clone Trooper.
    • He foresaw the occurrence of Order 66, yet is one of the first (fallen) Jedi to get executed by a Clone Trooper.
  • Death Glare: He gives one to Rex, bending over to get right in his face. Rex returns it.
  • Double Weapon: He uses not one but two double-bladed lightsabers, one green and one blue.
  • Dreaming of Things to Come: He claims to have had a vision of the Republic's downfall, which leads him to switch sides and deliberately try to sabotage his own war effort in hopes of impressing Count Dooku.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: He gets so hooked on massacring the Clone Troopers that he fails to realize that Tup is clearly luring him to a trap.
  • Dual Wielding: With double-bladed lightsabers.
  • Establishing Character Moment: Krell is first shown to have a respectful meeting with Anakin before showing his bigotry to Clone by insulting and demeaning Rex.
  • Evil All Along: Having foreseen the Republic's eventual collapse, he intended to defect to the Sith. In hindsight, all of his idiot strategies made sense.
  • Evil Is Hammy: When Krell reveals his true loyalties, he does it with a big, hammy speech.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Krell's already deep voice becomes almost demonic after he's revealed to be a traitor due to his sinister delivery and booming, hammy dialogue.
  • Expendable Clone: He doesn't care the least about the casualties his "right in the middle of it" tactics cause, purely because his troops are Clone troopers. It turns out he wanted there to be casualties.
  • Face–Heel Turn: He secretly turned to the Dark Side sometime prior to his introduction, when he foresaw the fall of the Republic.
  • Fallen Hero: He's a Jedi Master so he must have done something right before the Face–Heel Turn.
  • Family-Unfriendly Death: It's not quite as bad as some of the installment’s more gruesome ends, but being shot In the Back military execution-style by one of his own men, while unarmed and kneeling, is not exactly your typical cartoon villain death.
  • Fantastic Racism: He treats Clone Troopers with nothing but utter contempt.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He was reasonably polite towards Anakin, and, while he was generally just a Jerkass, Krell managed to show a few shreds of respect to Rex and Sergeant Appo. Even this small affability proved to be a complete lie to cover Krell's true monstrous nature.
  • For the Evulz: He manipulated his Clone Troopers into being slaughtered and into killing their own comrades because he could. Even if it was part of his plan to defect to the Sith, he obviously enjoyed the Clone Troopers' deaths.
  • Freudian Excuse: He turned to the Dark Side after forseeing the fall of the Republic. Of course, this excuse is pretty weak, since he decided he'd rather save his own skin than report his findings to the Jedi Council.
  • General Failure: The way he commands, you'd think he's trying to lose. Which, as it turns out, he was.
  • Genius Bruiser: The genius part only comes into play when his true plans are revealed. Once he gets into the action, he tears things up.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Subverted. Initially, it seems he's just a Jedi that puts more emphasis on "no personal attachments" and a lot less on being compassionate. Then it turns out he's just plain evil.
  • Hannibal Lecture: When Rex tries execute him, Krell gives a speech about how he's too scared to pull the trigger. It actually works on Rex. However, he wasn't counting on Dogma to be the backup executioner.
  • Hate Sink: He is one of the most detestable characters in the Canon. He orders the Clone Troopers around harshly, threatens Fives with his lightsaber, and tricks two Clone Trooper regiments into killing each other. He even slaughters half of them when escaping. It's extremely satisfying when he is shot and killed by Dogma.
  • Hoist Hero over Head: He does this to a Clone Trooper after revealing his true colors, even breaking his spine on his knee in a manner similar to Bane.
  • I Fight for the Strongest Side: He fights for who he believes will win. When he foresaw the fall of the Jedi, he decided to betray the Republic.
  • Informed Ability: He is said to be a highly successful military strategist, but mostly just gives orders that seem intended to get as many Clone Troopers killed as possible. Not surprisingly, he's also stated to have the record for highest Clone Trooper casualty rate. It's later revealed that Krell truly is a brilliant strategist: all of his battle plans were intended to kill as many Clone Troopers as possible.
  • Insane Admiral: Krell invariably chooses the most straightforward, violent approach, resulting in massive casualties. This might seem like part of his corruption, but it's mentioned early during the Umbara arc that he has a long history of suffering great casualties. Either he's been planning to defect for quite some time, his Fantastic Racism is really that strong, or he's just that bad a tactician.
  • In the Back: Rex intended to execute Krell while the treacherous Besalisk was facing the wall of his cell. When Rex hesitated, Dogma intervened and shot Krell in the back.
  • It's All About Me: Krell foresaw the eventual fall of the Jedi Order, so he decided to betray the Jedi, the Republic, and the Clone Troopers, all just so that he could join what he believed was the winning side. Even before being outed as a traitor, Krell is a ruthlessly controlling leader who insists that his commands be followed above all else, even threatening Fives for questioning him.
  • Jerkass: The nicest way to describe him. He's later revealed to be far worse.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: The one smart thing Krell does during the Umbara arc is correctly point out that Dogma was "the biggest fool of them all" and that his plan would never have worked without the blind loyalty and order-driven mentality of Dogma and those like him. Dogma outgrows that mentality rather quickly.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: He gave one or two signs that he might not have been quite as bad as he seemed early on in the Battle of Umbara. Then...
  • The Juggernaut: Nothing that the Clone Troopers throw at Krell is enough to stop him. Even when a vixus has Krell in its grip, he still manages to kill a few Clone Troopers before he's stunned long enough for Tup to knock him out.
  • Jumping Off the Slippery Slope: He initially seems to be sacrificing Clone Troopers for the good of the Republic, but then he tricks the Clone Troopers into killing each other and reveals himself as a Separatist and Sith supporter.
  • Jump Scare: This is how his death plays out: he's abruptly and loudly shot in the back while monologuing with no warning whatsoever. It can be quite startling the first time watching it.
  • Karmic Death: He receives one at the hands of Dogma, the one Clone Trooper who was utterly loyal to him out of duty.
  • Killed Mid-Sentence: Dogma shoots Krell right in the middle of his Hannibal Lecture to Rex.
    Krell: Eventually, you'll have to do the right thing and— [fatally shot]
  • Knight Templar: Krell starts out seeming like an exceptionally brutal, rude Jedi who is nevertheless dedicated to the Republic. The truth, however, is that he's only out for himself.
  • Lack of Empathy: Even before he's revealed to have been Evil All Along and to have fallen to the Dark Side, he takes the "no personal attachments" part of the Jedi Code way too far and doesn't even focus on the part about being compassionate, treating the Clone Troopers serving under him as expendable.
  • Large and in Charge: Krell towers over the Clone Troopers, indicating his role as a military authority and his power as a Jedi.
  • Large Ham: From the start, Krell is a dramatic, forceful personality. Once he reveals himself to be a traitor, Krell revels in delivering almost every line with as much malice and smug superiority as he can with a few Evil Laughs thrown in for good measure.
  • Laser Blade: He wields two double-bladed lightsabers. One of them is green-bladed and the other one is blue-bladed.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: He harshly insults Dogma, the one Clone Trooper that was consistently loyal to him up until his true nature became apparent. Said Clone Trooper is the one that does him in.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Krell is incredibly fast for his size, can lift fully-grown and armored soldiers over head, and can block hundreds of rapid fire shots at time with his lightsabers.
  • Manipulative Bastard: He used Rex to secure the loyalty of the Clone Troopers in the 501st, despite the resistance his obviously flawed strategies met, and tricked two Clone Trooper battalions into fighting each other. All of this to cripple the Republic offensive on Umbara, which he intended to use as a ticket to become Dooku's apprentice.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: He has four arms, and he puts them to good use while wielding two double-bladed lightsabers.
  • Multicultural Alien Planet: One of the things that The Clone Wars managed to do was take races that were previously shown as friendly or antagonistic and flip that around. In this case, Pong Krell is a Besalisk, one of whom, Dex, was previously shown in Attack of the Clones as a friend of Obi-Wan who was friendly, boisterous, and not out to kill anyone.
  • Mythology Gag: He seems to be based on the "Jedi Brute", a type of mook from the Revenge of the Sith video game adaptation who also wields double-bladed lightsabers.
  • The Neidermeyer: Even before he was revealed to have been Evil All Along, the Clone Troopers hated him.
  • Oh, Crap!: The look on his face right before getting stunned by Tup screams of this.
  • One-Man Army: He managed to cut through dozens of Clone Troopers without much difficulty.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Well, he was correct about the Republican "being ripped apart from the inside". It just wasn't because the Separatists won, or because the Clone Troopers were incompetent. It was quite the opposite, in fact.
  • Sadist: Krell positively revels in slaughtering Clone Troopers as brutally as possible. He doesn't limit himself to physical suffering, either; as he destroys Dogma's illusions of righteousness, Krell has a big smile on his face, and he clearly enjoys delivering a Hannibal Lecture to Rex.
  • Slasher Smile: He sports one once he reveals his true colors.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Even if his plan had worked, it's rather unlikely he would have been able to convince someone like Count Dooku to take someone as slimy and overconfident as Krell for his apprentice.
  • Smug Snake: Even when Rex had a gun aimed at his head, Krell remained absolutely confident that he would come out on top. Dogma proved him wrong.
  • The Sociopath: Krell displays politeness whenever he has to, but has no empathy whatsoever, callously manipulates even the Clone Troopers who were unquestionably loyal to him, and actively enjoyed massacring them once his duplicity was revealed.
  • Strong and Skilled: His natural Besalisk strength combined with his Jedi combat training makes Krell an extremely deadly combatant with a lightsaber and unarmed.
  • Super Window Jump: Does one out of the control tower when the Clone Troopers begin their attempt to capture him.
  • Supernatural Gold Eyes: They're indicative of his alien nature and his status as a Darksider.
  • Token Evil Teammate: He treats his Clone Troopers worse than any other Jedi in the war. It is hardly a surprise when he is revealed to indeed be evil.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Telling Captain Rex that You Wouldn't Shoot Me while he's unarmed, bound, kneeling, and has his back to Rex was perhaps not the smartest thing to do, even if Dogma was ultimately the one who did the deed.
  • Unfriendly Fire: He is executed by one of his own Clone Troopers, and afterwards there was much rejoicing.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: He has no respect for the Clone Troopers, even for Dogma, and taunts Dogma by calling him "the biggest fool of them all".
  • Yellow Eyes of Sneakiness: His eyes are yellow and his true plans are extremely devious. This may be a case of Fridge Brilliance because "yellow eyes" are often a sign of deep immersion in the Dark Side - if it's not his natural eye colour, then it might be an early sign of his true allegiance.
  • You Are Number 6: He refers to the Clone Troopers by their letters and numbers instead of their nicknames as a way to avoid attachment.
  • You Wouldn't Shoot Me: He tells Rex that he's too scared to pull the trigger. He's right... But Dogma sure wasn't.

    Barriss Offee 

Barriss Offee

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/barriss_offee_sw_6568.jpg
"I don't have all the answers, Ahsoka. Like you, I'm a learner."

Species: Mirialan

Homeworld: Mirial

Portrayed by: Nalini Krishan (films)
Voiced by: Meredith Salenger (The Clone Wars)
Appearances: Attack of the Clones | The Clone Wars | Adventures: Forces of Destiny

"I've learned that 'trust' is overrated. The only thing the Jedi Council believes in is violence!"

Barriss Offee was a female Mirialan who trained under Jedi Master Luminara Unduli as a Jedi Padawan during the Clone Wars. Offee was a survivor of the Battle of Geonosis and was extremely loyal to her Jedi Master. She also preferred studying ancient Jedi texts to fighting and was a bit older than most Jedi Padawans. During her time as a Jedi Padawan, Offee struck up a friendship with Ahsoka Tano, the Padawan of Anakin Skywalker. Though rather different in personality, the two bonded through shared experience in combat. She led Ahsoka and herself through the catacombs of Poggle the Lesser's main droid-factory during the Second Battle of Geonosis and together they destroyed the facility, becoming close friends along the way. However, during the course of the war, she became embittered with the Jedi Order and eventually turned to the Dark Side, which resulted in her bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar.


  • Ambiguously Gay: Barriss has a lot of subtext with Ahsoka. Behind the scenes, Giancarlo Volpe even says it was deliberate: "You have no idea how hard I secretly pushed this agenda in "Weapons Factory"". And, unlike Ahsoka, Barriss never shows an interest in any male characters.
  • Anti-Villain: Of the Well-Intentioned Extremist variety. The motivations she has for bombing the Jedi Temple hangar are somewhat justified, but her actions in pursuing them are just unforgivable.
  • The Apprentice: Of Luminara Unduli. She is even of the same species and shares similarities in mannerism as her.
  • Arc Villain: She is revealed to be the mastermind behind the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar.
  • Ascended Extra: Just like her master (along with many of the other members of the Jedi Order), she receives a fleshed out expanded role in The Clone Wars after being featured in the Prequel Trilogy as a peripheral member of the Jedi Order with small screen time and zero lines.
  • Badass Adorable: Barriss is a very positively adorable and beautiful Jedi Padawan learner who is skilled to the point of which she managed to bomb the Jedi Temple hangar, frame Ahsoka for the crime (along with defeating her in a lightsaber duel), and briefly held her own against an enraged Anakin.
  • Badass Bookworm: She is extremely intelligent as proven by her intensive studies of the Geonosian hive system and later her manipulations after secretly bombing the Jedi Temple hangar.
  • Beware the Quiet Ones: No one suspected that anything was wrong with her until she was revealed to have bombed the Jedi Temple hangar.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: She continued to act as a Jedi after secretly betraying the Jedi Order via bombing the Jedi Temple hangar.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: She allowed Ventress to live after stealing her lightsabers. Just killing Ventress would have silenced the last possible witness to Ahsoka's innocence. Befitting the trope, failing to eliminate Ventress led directly to Barriss's exposure and downfall.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: When she gets infected by a Geonosian brain worm, she is forced to attack Ahsoka.
  • Break the Cutie: This is what fighting in the Clone Wars did to her.
  • Broken Ace: Barriss is initially a perfect, reliable Padawan who was trusted by her master to complete missions on her own. But, she slowly breaks down over the course of the Clone Wars without anyone noticing, culminating in her turn to the Dark Side.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Sort of. When Anakin snarls that she should have gotten rid of Ventress's red Sith lightsabers, Barriss cryptically responds, "I think they suit me".
  • The Chessmaster: She was the mastermind behind the bombing in the Jedi Temple hangar. First, she convinced Letta to feed explosive nanodroids to her husband, who worked in the Temple, using him as the bomb. When evidence led back to Letta (purely by chance), she had arranged for Letta to ask Ahsoka for help, at which point Barriss Force-choked her while Ahsoka was in the room to pin suspicion on her. Then, she arranged for Ahsoka's escape, knowing that she was looking for proof of her innocence. Barriss pretended to provide that proof in order to frame Ahsoka for the bombing as well as stealing Ventress's lightsabers and Cool Helmet to deflect the suspicions of anyone who might believe Ahsoka's story. Were it not for the fact that Anakin decided to hear Ventress out, her plan would have worked perfectly.
  • Combat Pragmatist: She ambushed Ventress by hurling a heavy piece of metal at her before knocking her out with a pipe. Later, she threw heavy barrels at Ahsoka during their duel and detonated containers of high pressured gas in her face.
  • Commanding Coolness: As with every other Padawan learner, she was given the rank of Jedi Commander when the Clone Wars began.
  • Consummate Liar: She manipulates Ahsoka with a completely straight face, giving no indication that she isn't just helping out a friend. Her responses to Anakin's interrogation sound perfectly genuine. Once he makes it obvious that he knows she's guilty, her mask starts to slip rapidly.
  • Crazy-Prepared: She memorized all two hundred junctions of a Geonosian hive in advance for a stealth infiltration.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: First, she successfully ambushed Ventress. Then, she easily defeated Ahsoka in a duel. However, she found herself on the receiving end of one when she had to face Anakin.
  • Cute and Psycho: She is very adorable, soft spoken, well-mannered, beautiful, and overall one of the nicest members of the Jedi Order... then she turned out to be a mass murderer, a terrorist, and a highly capable Chessmaster and Manipulative Bastard of her own right.
  • Dark Action Girl: Anyone who can successfully sneak up on Ventress, curb-stomp Ahsoka, and briefly hold her own against an enraged Anakin deserves the title.
  • Deadpan Snarker: She shows a few hints of this.
    Barriss: Whatever you're doing, I hope it works, because I'd sure rather have died fighting up there than starve to death down here.
    Ahsoka: Don't worry. We'll run out of air long before we starve.
    Barriss: That's a comforting thought. Thanks.
  • Distressed Damsel: A variation: Ahsoka had to save Barriss's life while Barriss was possessed by a Geonosian brain worm and trying to kill her.
  • Dual Wielding: She uses Ventress's two lightsabers during the separate duels she had with Ahsoka and Anakin.
  • Easily Forgiven: While not at all absolving her for killing people and framing her for it, Ahsoka seems to have forgiven Barriss relatively quickly. It probably helps that Barriss was right about the situation in hindsight, despite her wrongful methods.
  • Et Tu, Brute?: Ahsoka's reaction when Anakin revealed her betrayal is simply and softly asking her if it was true.
  • Evil Former Friend: She and Ahsoka were very close before Barriss used her as a scapegoat for her own terrorist plot.
  • Evil Genius: She masterminded a plot that completely fooled and cornered the Jedi Council.
  • The Extremist Was Right: Despite how wrong her actions were, Barriss has a very good point about the increasing militarization of the Jedi Order. She was also right on the money, although probably not for the reasons that she believed, when she claimed that the Republic was failing and that the Jedi had become "an army fighting for the Dark Side". Even Ahsoka admits that Barriss was correct in her thoughts about the Jedi, if wrong in her actions.
  • Face–Heel Turn: She becomes disillusioned with the Jedi Order, believing that they've become a corrupt shadow of their former self. This prompts her to act against them.
  • Facial Markings: She has a set of cultural tattoos across her nose and on the backs of her hands.
  • Fallen Hero: She went from a heroic Jedi to a hypocritical terrorist.
  • The Ghost: In the Ahsoka novel, Ahsoka mentions Barriss a few times.
  • Good Girl Gone Bad: Barriss was initially extremely polite and kind in addition to practically being the poster image for a proper Jedi apprentice. Two years of the Clone Wars pass and she has become an unhinged Knight Templar and mass murderer.
  • Green-Skinned Space Babe: This is standard for female Mirialans. However, just like her master, she's more classically beautiful than sexy.
  • Hypocrite: She was disgusted by how the Jedi have become warmongers and, as she put it, "an army fighting for the Dark Side". How did she fight against this? She did it with terrorism, deception, and betrayal, which are the exact methods the Dark Side favors. She also claimed every Jedi should be tried, yet she framed Ahsoka specifically to avoid being caught. She at least seems to acknowledge it in her Motive Rant and when she says that she kept Ventress's lightsabers because she felt that they suited her. Red lightsabers are usually seen as the signs of a Darksider.
  • Hypocrite Has a Point: While she is in no position to judge due to being a fallen Jedi herself, Barriss is right in saying that the war has seriously corrupted the Jedi Order.
  • In the Hood: She almost always has her hood up.
  • Knight Templar: Her reasoning against the Jedi's involvement in the war is sound and just, but resorting to terrorism and deception to get her point through made her even worse than what she claimed to have been fighting against.
  • Lady of War: Her fighting style is rather graceful, just like her master's own.
  • Laser Blade: She wields a blue-bladed lightsaber. Eventually, she wields two red-bladed lightsabers.
  • Manipulative Bastard: While Barriss was pretending to be helping Ahsoka, she manipulated her moves to incriminate her even more.
  • Moral Myopia: Barriss considered the Jedi Order to be corrupt and violent, yet saw nothing wrong with using violent, destructive methods to try and end their involvement with the war. She was so obsessed with trying to end the Order's corruption that she didn't notice it in herself until the end. Although, she still blames her own corruption on the Jedi Order.
  • Most Common Super Power: She has very buxom breasts.
  • Motive Rant: She delivers one to a courtroom full of people after her crimes are uncovered.
  • Murder Is the Best Solution: This is her approach to the Clone Troopers infected by Geonosian brain worms. After she is infected herself, she begs Ahsoka to kill her.
  • Necessarily Evil: This is what she appears to see herself as. The reality is far different, as her methods end up preventing anyone from truly listening to her valid point.
  • Nice Girl: She is a very good friend to Ahsoka. The friendship was genuine at first, but it became a façade after Barriss started going down the path of the Dark Side, with her new idea of friendship being manipulating, framing and harming Ahsoka.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: An Anti-Villain example. Her confession attacking the corruption of the Jedi Order ends up planting a seed of doubt in the mind of one of the Temple Guards escorting her. That guard later falls to the Dark Side, becomes the Grand Inquisitor, and executes Luminara Unduli.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: Sure, her attempt to frame Ahsoka was certainly not a good thing in and of itself, but it contributed to Ahsoka's decision to leave the Jedi Order ... which spared her life when Order 66 was executed.
  • Put on a Bus: Her fate after being imprisoned is unknown, though it was stated by Word of God that she was not executed.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: She is the blue to Ahsoka's red. She even has the eye and lightsaber colors to match.
  • Slasher Smile: In a Freeze-Frame Bonus, she has one for a brief period at the beginning of her duel with Anakin.
  • Spared by the Adaptation: In the Legends continuity before The Clone Wars, Barriss was said to be on Felucia during the execution of Order 66 and met her demise by an AT-TE cannon. The Fugitive arc in The Clone Wars rendered it non-canon via a cruel twist: Barriss had turned to The Dark Side in the later days of the war and was the mastermind behind the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar and Ahsoka's fugitive status. Barriss confessed her crimes before the tribunal and was taken into Republic custody, but not before calling out the Jedi Order's increasing militarization and dogma. According to Dave Filoni, she was not executed.
  • Teen Genius: To memorize two hundred junctions of a literal bughive requires one to be this.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Barriss’s skill in lightsaber combat initially isn't exceptional and Ahsoka is able to handle her without too much difficulty when Barriss is possessed by Geonosian brain worms. Two years later, she utterly curb stomps Ahsoka and manages to briefly hold off an enraged Anakin.
  • The Unfettered: Manipulating innocent civilians, killing innocent people and her own friends alike, framing Ahsoka and letting her be almost executed... Barriss proved that nothing was beyond her in her attempt to end the growing corruption of the Jedi.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Ahsoka saved her life twice, yet she was perfectly fine with using her as a patsy for her own crimes, which nearly resulted in Ahsoka's execution, although granted Barriss didn't intend for that part... she hoped Ahsoka being branded a criminal would draw her to her side of terrorism against the Republic.
  • Villain Ball: As Anakin points out, the smart thing to do would have been to dispose of Ventress's lightsabers after using them to attack Ahsoka. Barriss admits that she kept them out of vanity.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: She believed the Jedi Order was degenerating from peacekeepers into warmongers and believed they should be punished for it, but this doesn't justify a bombing that killed many innocent people.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Her blue lightsaber gets sliced in half during her duel with Anakin. Ironically, it's Anakin who is actually using her weapon it with his own at the time and Barriss herself is the one who destroys it (using Ventress's red Sith lightsabers, no less.)
  • You Are What You Hate: She hates the Jedi Order because she thinks they've betrayed their principles and fallen to the Dark Side... which is exactly what she did. To her credit, she seems to be aware of this as she includes herself when she says the Jedi have fallen.

Species: Miraluka

Appearances: Jedi of the Republic | Dark Lord of the Sithnote 

A Miraluka Jedi Knight. In place of his species' lack of physical sight, his intuition and insight have made him valuable to the Jedi Order to the point he was acknowledged as such by Mace Windu and the Jedi Council. Because of his skill, Master Windu recruited him on a reconnaissance mission to Hissrich.

For info on the Tenth Brother, see his entry on the Star Wars – Inquisitorius character page.


  • Blind Weaponmaster: Like other well-known Miraluka characters before him, he qualifies as this.
  • Canon Immigrant: He is the first known Miraluka to be introduced into canon.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has a dry quip every now and then.
  • Face Framed in Shadow: Since Miraluka (at least according to Legends) don't have eye sockets, they usually wear something over where it would be so that other people don't get disturbed by it or that part of their body isn't really important to show. Prosset's hood is shorter than what we've seen so far from previous Miraluka, so whenever art shows where his eyes would be, they're scribbled in shadow.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Frustrated with the Jedi Order's inability to protect others and maintain peace as a result of taking up military titles in the Clone Wars, he blames the Jedi Council for this and fights Mace. Though he voiced intent to leave the Jedi Order to follow his own path, Mace apprehends him and sends him to the Council to be processed. The Council would've sentenced him to death had Mace not vouched for him to work probation in the Archives instead. Somewhere along the way, it leads to him joining the Inquisitors.
  • Foreshadowing: While arguing with Mace about whether or not the Council is corrupt, Mace dismisses his claims as "bold accusations" and "grand inquisitions". Huh.
  • History Repeats: Later in the Clone Wars, Barriss would have similar views to Dibs and would lash out against the Jedi Order as well.
  • Pungeon Master: He is particularly fond of eye-related puns that poke fun of his lack of sight.
