A Karina the Great was the Geonosian queen of Geonosis during the Clone Wars, who served as the Karina the Great—the secret leader—of the Stalgasin hive and Geonosis during the war.


Karina ruled over Geonosis and her empire from beneath the Progate Temple with Archduke Poggle the Lesser acting as Geonosis' public leader. Karina laid many eggs and learned how to bring dead Geonosians back to life.[3]

Clone WarsEdit

In 21 BBY,[6] during the Second Battle of Geonosis, Karina was able to have her undead soldiers capture Jedi Master Luminara Unduli when Poggle allowed her to follow him into the Progate temple's catacombs. Karina then allowed two more Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, to come before her.[2]

When Kenobi told that she must surrender to the Republic, Karina refused to do so. She told Kenobi about her plans to use her children to control Unduli and the other Jedi. However, Karina was blinded by Commander Cody's troopers' flashlights. As the Jedi made their escape and took Poggle, Karina was buried alive.[2]
