Tiplee Lightsaber in Star Wars Canon
Tiplee and her twin sister Tiplar study the ways of the Force under the guidance of the Jedi Order. Both sisters ascend to the rank of Jedi Master and both serve as Jedi Generals during the Clone Wars.
Jedi Generals Tiplar, Tiplee and Anakin Skywalker coordinate with Clone Commander Doom a campaign against the Confederates in the Battle of Ringo Vinda. During the battle, Skywalker recommends that each Jedi General lead a team through the three corridors leading to the command center. The three groups would converge at the command center, the location of Confederate Admiral Trench.
As all three groups near the command center, during the battle, Tiplee witnesses one of Tiplar’s own clone troopers strike Tiplar down with one blaster bolt (the clone trooper had enacted the secret Order 66 early). Tiplar dies, the Republic loses momentum in the battle and is forced to fall back.
Later in the war, Tiplee, along with fellow Jedi Mace Windu, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Aayla Secura go on a mission to the planet Ord Mantell. When the Jedi arrive at the outpost, they discover that the rogue Sith Lord Darth Maul of the Shadow Collective and Count Dooku of the Separatists have formed an alliance. Maul and Dooku engage in a lightsaber duel with Tiplee and Kenobi. Windu and Secura join the duel later.
During the duel, Dooku uses the Force to pull Tiplee toward him. He he stabs her and the impact knocks her lightsaber out of her hand. Tiplee dies.
