- "There are some citizens of the Republic, like myself, who believe the Jedi Order is not what it used to be. The Jedi have become warmongers. They have become military weapons. And they are killing when they should be keeping the peace."
- ―Letta Turmond to Ahsoka Tano, explaining her motives
Letta Turmond was a human female citizen of the planet Coruscant. She was an anti-war activist whose radical beliefs led to her participation in the bombing of the Jedi Temple during the Clone Wars. Turmond fed NM-K reconstitutor nano-droids to her husband, the Abyssin Jackar Bowmani, who worked as a munitions expert at the Jedi Temple, and they eventually exploded, killing Bowmani and others.
Barriss Offee, the Padawan who masterminded the attack, choked Turmond to death in order to hide Offee's involvement. Ahsoka Tano was then framed for the murder, before Offee's involvement was discovered.
Biography[edit | edit source]
Letta Turmond, a human female, lived on the Core World of Coruscant near the end of the Clone Wars. She was hardened by a life in the working-class levels, and had a bitter view on the Jedi Order and Galactic Republic. Turmond was opposed to the Clone Wars, and believed that the Jedi Order had become warmongers instead of the peacekeepers they once were. At some point, Turmond married the Abyssin Jackar Bowmani, who worked at the Jedi Temple as a munitions expert. His expertise was used to arm gunships, influencing how Turmond felt about what the Order had become.
