But Aayla saw her end while serving as a general during the Battle of Felucia, she was killed by clone troopers after Order 66 was given.

It didn’t take Aayla long to climb up the Jedi ranks. She became a Jedi Knight before the Clone Wars, and became a Jedi Master after the Clone Wars.

Aayla Secura was a calm and patient Jedi who would go wherever she was needed. She was also very skilled with her bright blue lightsaber. She mastered a form of lightsaber combat known as Form IV. This form of lightsaber combat was best suited for use in bigger spaces, because it focus’ primarily on acrobatics. But it also includes the ability to use the blade of one’s lightsaber to deflect incoming fire.

Aayla’s death was felt by many in the Force, most notably by Grand Master Yoda, who felt her life end while he was on Kashyyyk.
