- "Ahsoka trusted you, and you betrayed her!"
"I've learned that trust is overrated. The only thing the Jedi Council believes in is violence!"
- ―Anakin Skywalker and Barriss Offee during the duel
During the Clone Wars, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker fought fallen Padawan Barriss Offee in a lightsaber duel in the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. The duel occurred after after Skywalker learned that Offee framed his Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, for the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar that occurred several days earlier. After speaking with Asajj Ventress, and learning about the ambush that occurred during the attempted capture, Skywalker felt that Offee was the only other person capable of bombing the Jedi Temple. This proved to be true and she engaged Skywalker with Ventress' Sith lightsabers. Barriss was ultimately defeated and brought to the Senate Building, where she confessed to bombing the Jedi Temple, believing that the Jedi had become an army fighting for the dark side and it was only a matter of time before the Republic failed.
