Dark Blue

An Expanded Universe Character from the
Dark Horse
Star Wars Comic Book Series

By Cory Herndon

The graceful blue Twi'lek female Aayla Secura, onetime Jedi Padawan of Master Quinlan Vos, once very nearly killed her Kiffar mentor while both were still suffering from the effects of a memory wipe. Her uncle, glitteryll smuggling figure Pol Secura, had erased their memories to protect his interests, keeping his unknowing niece as insurance against Jedi reprisals and for his use as an ignorant, cold-blooded enforcer. Eventually, Aayla lashed out with the dark side and killed her uncle. She faced Quinlan Vos in a series of duels that ended when Vos unleashed dark side energy.

Her memories restored, Aayla now has a new Master, Tholme. The Council decreed that Aayla and Quinlan Vos had both ventured too close to the darkness and would recover inner peace more easily if separated. Soon, Aayla hopes to take the trials and emerge a full-fledged Jedi Knight, but she still shows impatience and anger stemming from the theft of her memories and her dabbling in the dark side -- which, Master Yoda bluntly says, is the reason she is still a Padawan.
