Sar Labooda was a human female Jedi who served the Jedi Order prior to the Clone Wars. Her sister, Depa Billaba, was a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council during the final years of the Galactic Republic. In 22 BBY, Labooda joined Mace Windu's Jedi assault team in an effort to rescue Obi-Wan Kenobi on the Separatist world of Geonosis. She was among the Jedi casualties of the First Battle of Geonosis.
Orphaned by space pirates as a young girl, Sar Labooda and her sister, Depa Billaba, were rescued from their homeworld, Chalacta, by the Jedi Mace Windu. Windu brought the pair to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where they joined the Jedi Order, with Billaba eventually becoming a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council.
In 22 BBY, Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi was captured on Geonosis while investigating the Confederacy of Independent Systems. To rescue the captive Jedi, Windu led a team, including Labooda, to Geonosis. The arrival of the Jedi began the First Battle of Geonosis, where Labooda engaged 3464 and another B1-series battle droid. During the course of the battle, Labooda was killed.
Personality and traits
Behind the scenes
Sar Labooda first appeared in the 2002 film Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. The character was originally intended to be Depa Billaba. However, the actress who replaced Billaba's portrayer, Dipika O'Neill Joti, looked too dissimilar to Billaba. This led to the creation of Labooda as a separate character. Labooda was portrayed by Emma Howard.[source?]
