Depa Billaba

Search for 'Depa Billaba' on Amazon

Depa Billaba is a Jedi Consular Master and Jedi Council member, and one of only three (the other two are Mace Windu and Sora Bulq) Jedi to master Vaapad, a form of fighting with the lightsaber (see the seven forms of lightsaber combat). The respected Windu saved her from the space pirates that killed her parents. He brought the force-sensitive child to the temple and took her as his padawan when she was of age. Mace, the creator of Vaapad, taught her all he knew and she became as close as a daughter. Depa embraced the culture of Chalacta, making her attuned to the minds and personalities of her peers in the Council Chamber. Decorating the bridge of her nose were Chalcactan marks of illumination, testament to her spirituality. She was a calm but powerful presence on the High Council.

During the Battle of Geonosis, Billaba looked after the "younglings," while the other Jedi were dispatched to fight.

Later, Depa was assigned to Mace's homeworld of Haruun Kal to assist the Korunnai natives with their guerilla warfare tactics in an effort to relinquish the Separatist hold on the system. Tragically, the constant conflict between the jungle natives and the Balawai prospectors in combination with the environment's own lethal nature drove Depa into the darkness of the jungle. Mace, after considerable effort, was able to extract Depa from Haruun Kal. However, Depa never recovered from the dark, catatonic state that she fell into after making an attempt to end her own life, and was presumably killed in the conduct of Order 66.
