|Chronological and political information|
A Force-sensitive Human, Mavra Zane was trained in the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order at the Coruscant Jedi Temple. Constructing a yellow-bladed lightsaber and growing strong in the Jedi arts under the tutelage of Grand Master Yoda, Zane achieved the rank of Jedi Master and was appointed an instructor at the Temple's academy. As separatism grew in the Galactic Republic's Senate and the discovery of the Sith on Naboo, the Jedi High Council saw a need to expand their training program across the galaxy. Selecting a group of Jedi Masters, the Council dispatched them with groups of Padawans to open new academies. Master Zane, one of the Masters selected, was tasked with leading a group of students to the forested world Kashyyyk and instruct her students in the ways of the Force.
Traveling aboard a Consular-class cruiser with a group of students, Master Zane and her charges arrived unscathed on Kashyyyk where they met with Masters Yoda, Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Turning the Padawans over to the Grand Master, Zane rested on Kashyyyk as she assisted in the training. Shortly after their arrival on the world, the academy and nearby village were attacked by Trandoshan slavers and the armies of the Commerce Guild. During the first assault, a group effort by the Jedi and the Wookiees scattered their attackers and bought time for the Jedi to regroup. Master Yoda used the lull in the fighting to withdraw back to Coruscant in hopes of divining the political causes of the attacks.
Shortly after Yoda left, Zane and her students were forced into battle again. Assisted by a Wookiee named Chewbacca a small group escaped the attack while Master Zane and many other students were taken captive. The escapees boarded a ship called the Starrunner after a brief encounter with the Sun Guard, and flew into space to chase after the slavers holding the other Jedi captive. Receiving instruction from Masters Yoda and Windu via hologram transmission, the surviving Jedi were notified that Zane and the other captives had been taken to a prison facility above the planet Felucia.
Aboard the Providence capital ship, Zane managed to free herself while a group of Padawans fought their way through the ship's hangar bay to the other imprisoned students. Aboard the ship, the Jedi discovered that the Commerce Guild was amassing a huge army to stage an attack on one of the Core Worlds. Realizing that the information needed to reach the High Council, Zane was able to meet up with the Padawans and ward off an attack by Sun Guards and IG-100 MagnaGuards. Upon destroying the ship's reactor core, Zane and her students boarded the Starrunner and attempted an escape. Taking critical damage, the ship crash landed on Felucia.
Evading enemy combatants, Zane led her students to the planet's resistance stronghold. The native Felucians, under the leadership of the Human Mak Pra, planned to storm the enemy's base. Agreeing to assist the resistance, Master Zane and her students infiltrated Presidente Shu Mai's stronghold. Discovering that Mai hoped to weaponize the dangerous chemical Trihexalon for an attack on Coruscant itself, Zane and her students attempted to escape the compound with this knowledge but were captured by the Gossam. Presidente Mai ordered the Jedi to be executed and escorted them to the mouth of a massive sarlacc. Before the Jedi could be disposed of, Master Yoda arrived with Republic reinforcements and freed the Jedi.
During the fighting the Jedi were engaged by two Zabrak Sith Acolyte, one of which was named Ror, and were able to defeat them at the cost of allowing Mai to escape. Zane led the chase into space, determined to stop the Gossam before she reached Coruscant. After a brief conflict over Felucia, the Commerce Guild's fleet jumped to the capital and the Jedi and the Republic were forced to follow. Flying as Red Leader, Zane led her squad to destroy the Commerce Guild's fleet, successfully ending the threat to Coruscant. Returning to the Jedi Temple, Master Zane elevated her students to the rank of Jedi Knight with the permission of the High Council.
