"It can't be… It can't be."
―Obi-Wan Kenobi, after witnessing Bene's death at the hands of his former apprentice[src]

Bene was a Force-sensitive human female Padawan of the Jedi Order who lived during the waning years of the Galactic Republic. As the Clone Wars drew to an end, Bene was killed by the Sith Lord Darth Vader during Order 66 and the fall of the Jedi Temple.


Bene was raised as a member of the Jedi Order during the final years of the Galactic Republic. In the waning days of the Clone Wars, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine commanded the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic to execute Order 66, labeling every Jedi an enemy of the state and therefore subject to summary execution. When the 501st Legion stormed the Jedi Temple of Coruscant, Bene confronted the fallen Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker—now anointed as the Sith Lord Darth Vader—[3] with the aid of Whie Malreaux and Jedi Master Cin Drallig. Despite their combined effort, Vader killed[2] his former comrades in lightsaber combat.[3] Bene's death was later witnessed by Obi-Wan Kenobi, Skywalker's Jedi Master, through a holographic security recording.[2]

Personality and traitsEdit

As a Jedi, Bene rallied to the defense of the Jedi Temple against a legion of clone soldiers led by a former Jedi Knight who turned to the dark side of the Force, Darth Vader. She was a human female who possessed brown hair and eyes, as well as fair complexion.[3]

Powers and abilitiesEdit

Bene's connection to the Force allowed her to harness its powers, and she was therefore trained as a Jedi Padawan. By the time of Order 66, she wielded a blue-bladed lightsaber.[3]

Behind the scenesEdit

Mousy McCallum, daughter of the Star Wars prequel trilogy producer Rick McCallum, portrayed Bene in the 2005 film Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[3]
