In 40 ABY, a meeting between Dark Lady of the Sith Lumiya and her apprentice Jacen Solo was interrupted when the Twi'lek Dark Jedi Alema Rar caught Jedi Master Tresina Lobi spying on the conversation. Rar's subsequent attack on Lobi alerted Lumiya to the presence of both women and, as Solo fled, Lumiya joined the lightsaber duel that had erupted in the midst of Coruscant's Fellowship Plaza. Lobi held her own against the pair of darksiders for a time and severed Lumiya's weapon arm, but was unable to maintain a protracted offensive against two opponents. She was crippled by the extensions of Lumiya's lightwhip, then killed with a decapitating strike of Rar's lightsaber.
Meeting in the Senate DistrictEdit
As Jacen and Ben were talking in Fellowship Plaza, they were being listened to by Lumiya, Jacen's Sith Master, along with Alema who was spying on Jacen, and Tresina Lobi, a Jedi Master Luke sent to watch over Ben. After Jacen and Ben finished talking about Luke Skywalker's concerns about his son and a new GAG Star Destroyer, Jacen sent him to GAG headquarters. As Ben passed Alema, she noticed Tresina eavesdropping on the conversation. Lumiya then left her own hiding place to talk to Jacen about his control over Ben and the possibility of making him his Sith apprentice. Alema noticed Tresina recording the conversation as Jacen told Lumiya to assassinate a list of Bothans to lure the terrorists into a trap. As Tresina was about to send the recording to Luke, Alema realized that she did not want him to receive the message. She wanted Jacen to become a Sith Lord so that Leia Organa Solo's heart would be broken assuring that The Balance was served. Alema sprang towards Master Lobi and landed on Tresina's shoulder blade, crushing it. Alema used the Force to remove Lobi's headset and they began fighting. Lumiya noticed the fight and told Jacen to leave for his meeting with Cha Niathal. At first Lumiya cautiously approached Alema, but the Twi'lek stated that she was a friend and the two teamed up to fight the Jedi Master.
- "You are good, Master Lobi—but not that good. Even you cannot defeat two of us."
- ―Alema Rar
Lobi used the Force to throw an urn into Alema's crippled shoulder before she could redirect it with Force lightning and knocked her into some shrubs behind her. As Alema rose, she saw Lumiya engaging the Jedi with her lightwhip. As Alema headed towards the fight, Master Lobi backflipped while pulling Alema into the lightwhip's strands which cut her thighs and ribs. Tresina landed and sliced off Lumiya's cybernetic weapon arm, then aimed for her torso before Alema caught the attack with her own blade. As Lobi attacked the Twil'lek, Alema Force threw the prosthetic arm towards Lobi's head. The arm missed, but gave the Sith Lady time to attack. Tresina pivoted away and kicked Alema in the chest. As she went flying, Lumiya launched another series of attacks which moved her towards Alema. Lobi whirled around and attacked Alema, but stumbled back into Lumiya's lightwhip and lost both of her legs. As Tresina screamed in agony, Alema ended her suffering by cutting her head off.
After Master Lobi had been struck down, Lumiya still remained suspicious of Alema. She stepped to the other side of the body with her lightwhip still activated. It was then that Alema took the recording device from Lobi's body, tossed it to Lumiya, and joined her cause. She continued to fill a role similar to that of a Sith Minion in Lumiya's Sith Order. She would go on to fight with Lumiya at the Roqoo Depot and save Darth Caedus's life during the Battle of Kashyyyk.
