Stass Allie, a Force-sensitive Tholothian female, was a Jedi Master who lived during the final years of the Galactic Republic. She was also the cousin of Adi Gallia, a fellow Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council. Allie became a Jedi General in the Grand Army of the Republic and, following Gallia's death, gained a seat on the High Council of the Jedi Order during the Clone Wars.
Allie was killed on the planet Saleucami during the waning hours of the Clone Wars. Having received the command to execute Order 66 from Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine, Clone Commander CC-8826 and another Grand Army clone trooper opened fire on their general, killing Allie in the process.
The Clone WarsEdit
Battle of GeonosisEdit
After the Jedi Council received word that Senator Padmé Amidala, Jedi Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi had been captured by the the leaders of the Confederacy of Independent Systems and the Geonosians resulting in a sentence to death, Stass Allie was recruited and joined Mace Windu's Jedi Strike team that were sent to rescue them. She and her fellow Jedi Masters fought valiantly inside the Petranaki arena against the Separatist Droid Army. Many Jedi were killed in the ensuing battle, though Allie managed to survive long enough for the new clone army to arrive, who escorted the remaining Jedi off the planet in several Republic gunships.
Jedi High CouncilEdit
Later in the Clone Wars, Stass Allie was eventually granted a seat on the Jedi High Council following the death of her cousin and fellow Tholothian Jedi Adi Gallia, who was brutally murdered at the hands of Savage Opress during a confrontation on Florrum along with Obi Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. Allie served on the Jedi Council until the end of the war.
Near the end of the Clone Wars, Allie was sent to the desolate planet of Saleucami, located in the Outer Rim, in order to battle Separatist forces. She was accompanied by the 91st Mobile Reconnaissance Corps, which was commanded by the clone commander Neyo, who was also present. Unknown to Allie or any of the other Jedi, the clones had been programmed with inhibitor chips, which forced them to comply[source?] with the execution of Order 66, which meant the extermination of all the Jedi across the entire Galaxy.
As the Order was commanded, Allie, along with Neyo and another clone trooper, were patrolling the bleak and barren landscape of the war-torn planet on BARC speeders. She was completely caught off guard as Neyo and his wingman lowered behind her and fired upon her speeder showing no remorse. She was killed in the blast instantly, leaving what was left of the speeder to crash, causing her lifeless corpse to be flung into the nearby grass.
Behind the scenesEdit
The creation of the character of Stass Allie is in many ways a retcon that took place prior to the release of any Attack of the Clones products. The filmmaker intended to use the majority of Jedi High Council members in the film's climactic Battle of Geonosis; however, because most of the film was shot in Australia instead of England, local model Lily Nyamwasa replaced Gin Clarke, who portrayed Adi Gallia in Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace. She filmed all of her scenes wearing Adi Gallia's costume, but the filmmakers eventually realized that she looked too different from Clarke's version of the character, so they created a new character for the film, who became known as Stass Allie.
After the death of Adi Gallia in The Clone Wars, in January 2013 the supervising director for the series, Dave Filoni, stated that the animation team had created a character model for Stass Allie, and that she was to appear in the show in a later season. This never happened, however, before the show was cancelled as a result of The Walt Disney Company acquiring Lucasfilm Ltd..
