Tiplar Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
Agile and acrobatic in lightsaber combat, Tiplar constructs and wields a green-bladed Jedi lightsaber. The two-toned lightsaber hilt is mostly metallic silver in color with dark accents.
Tiplar and her twin sister Tiplee learn the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Order. Both rise to the rank of Jedi Master and both accept commissions as Jedi Generals during the Clone Wars.
Jedi Generals Tiplar, Tiplee and Anakin Skywalker coordinate with Clone Commander Doom a campaign against the Confederates near the Ringo Vinda space station. When the contentious battle reaches a stalemate, General Tiplar launches and offensive to break through the deadlock. Successfully securing a position, Skywalker suggests that each Jedi lead a team through the three corridors leading to the command center. They would converge at the command center, the location of Confederate Admiral Trench.
Tiplar, Doom, and several additional clone troopers start clearing their corridor of droid forces. As Tiplar leads the charge and deflect enemy blasterfire with her lightsaber, a clone trooper’s inhibitor chip malfunctions, causing the trooper to enact Order 66 early. The clone trooper, nicknamed Tup, approaches Tiplar from behind. He kills her with a single blaster bolt. He is taken into to custody and later interrogated for apparent treason. The Republic forces on the space station lose their momentum and eventually fall back.
