Depa Billaba was a female Jedi Master who served on the Jedi Council in the years prior to the Clone Wars. Billaba served on the Jedi Council when Qui-Gon Jinn presented Anakin Skywalker, the Chosen One to the governing body, and later attended Jinn's funeral after the Jedi Master was killed during the Battle of Naboo. She retained her seat on the Jedi Council in the political crisis that led to the Clone Wars.
During the war, Billaba took on a Padawan named Caleb Dume. The two were attacked by clone troopers after the execution of Order 66, which branded the Jedi as traitors against the Galactic Republic. The two fought to save one another, but Billaba fell to the Republic's betrayal. Dume survived and took on a new name—Kanan Jarrus. He eventually became a rebel fighting against the Galactic Empire, and continued thinking of his fallen master and her lessons years after her death.
