Barriss Offee was a Mirialan Jedi during the Clone Wars. Barriss served her master Luminara Unduli faithfully during the Second Battle of Geonosis, where which she befriended Ahsoka Tano. However, as the war dragged on, Barriss became disillusioned with the Republic and turned to the dark side, framing Ahsoka for murder and conspiracy. After the war's end, she was recruited by the Inquisitors, hoping to apply her dark side skills to hunt Jedi for the Galactic Empire.

Biography[]

Weapons Factory[]

"I hope whatever you're doing works because I would have sure rather died fighting up there, than starve to death down here."
"Don't worry, we'll run out of air long before we starve."
"That's a comforting thought. Thanks."
―Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee while trapped under rubble[src]

During the second battle of Geonosis, Barriss and her master Luminara Unduli were sent to aid General Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano in destroying a Separatist droid factory, overseen by Poggle the Lesser. Upon their arrival, Skywalker and Tano were arguing. Luminara commented on this, and Barriss was surprised to learn that this was not uncommon between the two.

Having been briefed, Ahsoka and Barriss were to infiltrate the catacombs beneath the factory while Luminara and Anakin had to distract the droids above. Barriss and Ahsoka quickly set off and descended to the catacombs. Using the Force, Barriss was able to find an end to a tunnel and cut through the cliff with her Lightsaber. She led the way, having memorized all 200 junctions of the catacombs. Along the way, they encountered a tunnel full of sleeping Geonosians. One rested its hand on Barriss's head, but Ahsoka helped her, and they were on their way again, unaware that the incident had woken the Geonosian. They were able to reach the main reactor room, where Ahsoka planted the detonators.

Before they could make their escape, however, the woken Geonosian had alerted Poggle and had made their way down to the reactor, with a new Super Tank in tow. The Geonosians collected up the bombs while Barriss and Ahsoka deflected the Super Tank's fire. Ahsoka, noticing the bombs were being taken, ran and jumped on two Geonosians. They flew up with her and knocked her against the reactor, rendering her unconscious. Barriss, unable to regain the bombs, protected Ahsoka while the Geonosians flew away. Seeing a chance, Barriss jumped onto the Super Tank and cut through the ceiling, destroying the droids and taking control. She opened the hatch for Ahsoka, who had regained consciousness, and they debated what to do because the bombs were gone. They concluded that they were to use the tank's firepower and destroy the reactor, even if it meant their death. Ahsoka contacted Anakin, saying they couldn't make it out and pressed fire.

After the factory blew up, Ahsoka and Barriss both ignited their lightsabers and conversed on how they would escape. Luckily, Anakin had taught Ahsoka how to give a communicator life and use a power cell; she began to contact above. Luminara said that if her Padawan was dead, she will mourn her but celebrate the victory. Anakin then said that he plans to celebrate with his Padawan Fortunately, Anakin picked up the signal, ordered the debris to be moved, and used the Force with Luminara to lift the last bit. Ahsoka and Barriss emerged, slightly short of breath but otherwise fine. Anakin happily told Luminara that they were alive, but Luminara said she didn't think they were dead, but she was ready to let Barriss go and asked Skywalker if he could do the same.

Legacy of Terror[]

Barriss and Ahsoka talked with Clone Captain Rex. Ahsoka apologized that they were leaving because he had a lot of work to do. Rex told him that they'd done a lot and that they should take some rest, and they'd let General Obi-Wan Kenobi go in their place, and Barriss assured him that they'd be back before he knew it. Then, they got on their ship and left.

Brain Invaders[]

Barriss is infected by the brain worm

After Padawan learners Ahsoka Tano and Barriss Offee were ordered on a supply run to Ord Cestus, they were assigned a supply run to Mace Windu on Dantooine. Meanwhile, a Clone called Scythe got infected by a brain worm. He started spreading it among other clone troopers. Meanwhile, Offee and Tano were sleeping and talking about the peace in the room. Growing restless, Ahsoka suggested they get a meal instead. While in the mess hall, however, two infected clone troopers opened fire on them. They subdued the clones but when Trap and Havoc arrived, they demanded to know what happened. Trap suggested they investigate the bridge while Havoc stayed with the clones. Trap soon revealed he was also infected when he attacked Barriss, forcing her to kill the parasite as well as its clone host.

Offee and Tano then split up to take back control of the ship. Later, Offee was caught in a trap set by the parasites who infected her as well. She tried to infect Ahsoka, but she evaded her. Ahsoka told her to fight back to her normal self, but Barriss won't listen. Jedi Master Kit Fisto told Ahsoka that the cooling system could stop the infections, so she put it on.

Luckily for the Republic, Ahsoka managed to activate the coolant system, and all the worms were soon expelled from the clones' bodies. Barriss briefly got control of herself and asked Ahsoka to kill her. Ahsoka refused, and Barriss remained under the influence of the brain worm. Ahsoka was forced to take a risk and cut the worm in half when it protruded from Barriss' mouth. When Kit Fisto and medical clones entered the frigate, they found an unconscious Barriss held by Ahsoka, both rescued near death.

Grievous Intrigue[]

After Barriss and Ahsoka recovered from their ordeal, they headed into the Communications Tower and witnessed General Grievous torturing Jedi Master Eeth Koth. The Jedi were disturbed by this, and many of them left when dismissed, including both Barriss and Ahsoka.

Darkness on Umbara[]

BarrissandAhsoka-UmbaraSpacebattle-DOU

Barriss, along with fellow Jedi Commander Ahsoka Tano, led a space battle above the planet of Umbara. They destroyed the blockade and allowed the Jedi forces to land on the planet to capture it. She piloted a Delta-7B light interceptor in the battle.

Sabotage[]

Barriss was present at the Jedi Temple when it was bombed. One of the victims of the bombing was her friend Tutso Mara. When the Jedi launched an investigation, Barriss passed by the interrogation room, closely eyeing the suspect, Letta Turmond.

To Catch a Jedi[]

Barriss proof

Barriss contacts Ahsoka

While Ahsoka was in the underworld, having allied with Ventress, Ahsoka contacted Barriss for help. Barriss told Ahsoka that Letta visited a warehouse at the time she was getting the nano droids.

While at the warehouse, Ventress left Ahsoka, ambushed, and stole Ventress's lightsabers and mask from an unknown figure. The figure dueled Ahsoka and framed Ahsoka once more by Wolffe and other clones, finding her next to a crate full of nano droids.

The Wrong Jedi[]

Anakin hunted for the truth while Ahsoka's trial was continuing. Ahsoka had believed that Asajj Ventress was responsible for setting her up for the bombing of the Temple. Anakin set out to find her and soon did in the lower levels of Coruscant. Ventress told him that Barriss was the one that leads her to the warehouse. Anakin confronted Barriss in her chamber and took her lightsaber, forcing Barriss to wield Ventress's paired blades. Anakin overpowered her after she was forced to flee the Temple Guards. She admitted her crimes at the Bombing of the Jedi Temple Hangar to the court and was then escorted away by the Guards.
