Barriss Offee Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee fights alongside her master Luminara Unduli in what would become known as the First Battle of Geonosis. They are among the few Jedi survivors. Barriss Offee and fellow Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano work together on a mission. Despite their conflicting personalities, the two become friends and serve on several additional missions together.
As the Clone Wars drag on, Barriss Offee becomes disillusioned with the Jedi Order and the leadership of the Jedi Council and the Republic. She comes to believe that Jedi Order has strayed from the morals and ideals of the Jedi way of life.
Offee joins forces with an anti-war activist named Letta Turmond. The two decide to make a statement against the Jedi Order. Offee and Turmond orchestrate a deadly explosion in the Jedi Temple hanger. The blast kills several Jedi, civilians, clones and Republic military personnel. Offee Force chokes Turmond to death before she could reveal Offee’s involvement in the crime.
Barriss Offee frames her friend Ahsoka Tano for the crime. Her deception works and the Jedi Council quickly moves to expel Tano from the Jedi Order. Tano’s master, Anakin Skywalker, is angry and suspicious of his Padawan’s expulsion. Skywalker interrogates Ventress. She claims someone had stolen her lightsabers. Skywalker visits Offee and moves to attack her with her own lightsaber. Offee reflexively calls the Ventress lightsabers to her with the Force. Skywalker captures her and bursts into Ahsoka Tano’s trial. Offee admits her guilt and accuses the Jedi of bearing responsibility for the Clone Wars.
Although Ahsoka Tano is cleared of all charges and offered reinstatement in the Jedi Order, she feels betrayed by both Offee and the Jedi Order. She refuses to return and leaves the Jedi Order for good.
