Aayla Secura is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe, played by Amy Allen. Her name is pronounced as one word, Aayl'asecura in her native tongue. She was a Jedi Knight who appeared in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. She was an empathic and highly intelligent Jedi with impressive fighting skills. However, she never sat on the Jedi High Council.
Aayla is a female Twi'lek who was always strong with the Force. When she was training as a Padawan, her master was Quinlan Vos, a Kiffar who had recently lost his memories but maintained his Jedi ways.
The character was originally created for the Expanded Universe by artist Jan Duursema and writer John Ostrander, but after a piece of striking artwork by artist Jon Foster caught George Lucas's eye, the character was placed in the film.
Aayla Secura is a master of Ataru (Form IV Lightsaber Combat) according to her co-creater Jan Duursema.
Aayla was known to have an especially close friendship with Master Kit Fisto, a friendship that would probably have become more if neither had been a Jedi.
Although Aalya was only in Episodes II and III for a short time, she has a large following among fans. When the Clone Wars began, Aayla became a general in charge of a garrison of clone troopers. She was hospitalized after the attack by General Grievous during the Battle of Hypori, but eventually returned to the battlefield.
Aayla Secura was killed in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith when she was shot in the back by her clone troopers on Felucia after Order 66 was delivered. (On the starwars.com official homepage, it is said that just before the clones shot her, an indigenous bird took flight and distracted Aayla, therefore making her an easy target for the clone troopers aiming at her.)
