Honor Salima was a human female native of the planet Coruscant. She was an officer in the Republic Navy and served as the commanding officer of the Coruscant Home Defense Fleet, a Republic planetary defense fleet, for a decade prior to the Clone Wars. After the approval of the Military Creation Act and the start of the Clone Wars, Salima gained access to new technology for the fleet.[1]

In 19 BBY,[2] the Confederacy of Independent Systems launched an attack on Coruscant where they managed to kidnap the Republic's Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. Salima, still commanding the Coruscant Home Defense Fleet,[1] was able to swiftly rally the fleet and ordered them to close in to prevent the Separatists from disengaging and escaping,[3] she also moved the fleet to the hyperspace jump point to prevent the Separatists from leaving the system with the Chancellor.[1]

Honor Salima had dark-colored skin, brown eyes, dark hair, and wore a standard Republic officer's uniform.[1]
