A Force-sensitive, Hera Tuix received her early education in the ways of the Force at the Coruscant Jedi Temple's academy. Selected as a Padawan after the outbreak of the Clone Wars, a conflict between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Tuix was made a Commander in the Grand Army of the Republic.
Stationed at the Temple in 19 BBY, Tuix participated in the Apprentice Tournament overseen by Jedi Master Ilena Xan. Making it through to the Round of Eight, which was held in one of the Temple refectories, Tuix was defeated by a wrist-lock performed by fellow apprentice Whie Malreaux.
