Biography[edit | edit source]
The spiritual Bardotta was neutral during the Clone Wars, but Julia enlisted the help of the Galactic Republic, specifically asking for the help of Jar Jar Binks. The planet was threatened by an ancient prophecy and therefore Binks' help was requested. Bardotta was the planet of Dagoyan Masters, and due to a incident in the past, the Jedi were considered kidnappers and they were not welcome. Nevertheless Mace Windu also accompanied the representative on this mission.
Julia had in the past become very close to Jar Jar, and she kissed him when they were alone together. Julia told him that the Dagoyan Masters were disappearing and were kidnapped by the Frangawl Cult. When Jar Jar left Julia alone to talk to Mace, a comlink from one of the guards informed the two that Julia had been kidnapped by the cult. The Bardottan explained that Julia believed that a shrine of the cult existed under one of the temples. In this sanctuary there used to be a demon worshipped by the Frangawl.
When Jar Jar and Mace entered the catacombs, Jar Jar was also kidnapped by one of the cult members. Through his comlink Mace, however, could follow the trail of the Gungan. Julia was indeed detained and neither Mace nor Jar Jar were able to save her. They had to watch the cult leader spirit the Queen away to Zardossa Stix, a moon of Bardotta.
Although Mace and Jar Jar gave chase, Julia's kidnappers reached Zardossa Stix, and were chased by Windu and Binks through the desert. On top of a pyramidical structure, Julia was to be sacrificed on behalf of the Great Mother who turned out to be Talzin. Talzin wanted to combine Julia's energy with a magical ball of the cult which was filled with the stolen essence of the Dagoyan Masters.
After Mace and Jar Jar fought the Stone Guardians, they went to deal with the cultist. As Mother Talzin and Mace Windu dueled, Jar Jar went to save Julia, but instead of Julia, Jar Jar was now in place to be sacrificed. Julia, however pushed Jar Jar away just in time so that the leader of the sect was the victim. The magic sphere broke, creating a huge explosion. Julia, Jar Jar and Mace took cover but the blast killed the cultists and Talzin herself was turned into green smoke.
Julia thanked Jar Jar Binks in her mediation room and said the actions of Mace Windu had convinced her that the Jedi Order and the Bardotta could begin anew, Jar Jar then kissed her again, which she happily accepted.
