A unit of clone troopers was led by Jedi Knight Aayla Secura during the First Battle of Geonosis at the outbreak of the Clone Wars. Following Jedi Grand Master Yoda's arrival on Geonosis to rescue the Jedi assault team in the Petranaki Arena with two battle armies of clone troopers, Secura took command of a unit of clones after arriving on the front lines.
It was during this time when Secura demonstrated strong leadership and combat qualities, and how to masterfully manage military command. Secura proved her skills to the clones under her command, with who she fought shoulder to shoulder during the battle. Her blue lightsaber was a standard for the clones who followed her. Following the battle, due to her leadership qualities, Aayla Secura was made a Jedi General and placed in command of the 327th Star Corps.
