"Come on! Let's go!"
―Minas Velti, to the younglings[2]

Minas Velti was a human female who was a Jedi Master towards the end of the Clone Wars. Velti was killed by clone troopers of the 501st Legion during the siege of the Jedi Temple at the start of the Great Jedi Purge and the implementation of Order 66.


"Execute Order 66."
―Darth Sidious[2]

Minas Velti served the Jedi Order as a Jedi Master at the end of the Clone Wars.[2] In 19 BBY,[1] as Velti led a group of Jedi Initiates — including young Reva[4] — through a training routine within the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, the Grand Army of the Republic executed Order 66—the command to eliminate the Jedi—under the authority of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. As part of the siege of the Jedi Temple, clone troopers of the 501st Legion interrupted Velti's training and opened fire upon the Jedi Initiate Clan. Velti defended herself and the younglings before striking the troopers down. She then led her younglings through the Temple, protecting them along the way. Velti was soon overwhelmed by clone troopers and was killed in combat.[2]

Though Velti died in the escape, she protected the group of younglings, who were able to use her sacrifice to run.[2] However, Velti's death only delayed the inevitable as Darth Vader found the younglings and slaughtered them all, except for Reva.[4]
