- "Better a few faithful supporters than a wealth of false friends."
- ―Adi Gallia
As a revered Jedi Master, Gallia was naturally an exceptionally skilled member of the Order, who completed several notable assignments during her service to the Galaxy. Gallia was a key player in the Yuuzhan Vong War, where her actions saved countless lives during the devastating conflict. She later served as a chief negotiator during the Imperial-Republic Cold War, aimed at mending ties between the warring factions.
During her years as an apprentice, Gallia crafted a lightsaber using a synthetic red crystal, and befriended her fellow apprentices, Kyp Durron and Mace Windu. Gallia progressed through the academy and eventually graduated, and was elevated to the status of Knight.[source?]
Personality and traitsEdit
- "If I can deal with family, I can deal with anything."
- ―Adina Windu
Adina Gallia was a highly intuitive woman with a sarcastic sense of humor. She was noted for being politically savvy and very well known within the political spheres of the Core Worlds' representatives. Her understanding of the New Republic's complexities was natural, and she developed an extensive list of contacts. Gallia had no qualms about bringing the fight to the enemy, and she had a reputation as an aggressive warrior. Nevertheless, she was also a strict and focused woman, which often led her to criticize certain outrageous tactics by her peers.
Opposed to tyranny or slavery in any form, Gallia was particularly appalled when she saw the art of the Malastarian palace and its depiction of the subservient lifestyle of the Dugs to their Gran masters. Though the daughter of Corellian parents, Master Gallia was notable for wearing a traditional Tholoth headdress, suggesting she had ancestors from the planet Tholoth and was proud of her heritage.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Like all Jedi, Master Gallia was taught the ways of lightsaber combat and the uses of the Force. During her lightsaber studies, Master Gallia chose to adopt a reverse one-handed grip when wielding the blade, giving her the ability to counter attacks with long, wide swings and strikes. Over the other six forms of lightsaber style, Master Gallia preferred to employ an aggressive and physically demanding style of fighting.
Master Gallia's skill with a lightsaber was only rivaled by her affinity for piloting starfighters in battle, having trained with the renowned ace pilot Corran Horn. Indeed, Master Windu chose Gallia to lead her fellow Jedi in the space battle over ? while the other Jedi engaged the Yuuzhan Vong on the ground. Using the callsign "Shooting Star", Master Gallia was assigned many missions by the New Republic where she employed her piloting skills.
