- ―Depa Billaba, on the HoloNet's Medicine Today
Depa Billaba was a deeply stoic and enlightened Human (Chalactan? whatever, Human) Jedi who trained under Mace Windu. She was a member of the Jedi Council, where her job was to sit in the background and look wise. She was one of those Jedi consular types who preferred not to kick ass with lightsabers, which unfortunate, since she was one of the only people Mace taught his super-cool-secret-sweet lightsaber technique to. She was also the innovator of a Force technique called Billaba's interposing hand.
Billaba also had a brief stint as a religion correspondent on the HoloNet, where she spouted meaningless catchphrases and promoted homeopathic medicine. She refused to say what the heck the red dot on her forehead meant. Either it had deep religious significance, or Mace Windu tapped her too hard with his finger.
During the Clone Wars, Billaba was sent on a mission to Mace Windu's homeworld of Haruun Kal. There she joined a resistance movement, went completely insane, turned to the Dark Side, and committed countless atrocities and war crimes in the jungle. She fought alongside the leader of the Upland Liberation Front, which was engaged in a blood-struggle with the Liberation Front of Upland and the Upland Freedom Alliance, all of which were supposedly fighting against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, even though all used electronic devices imported from the CIS's Trade Federation. Mace Windu had to go and smack Billaba up and drag her by the hair back to the Jedi Temple.
