In 21 BBY, Ma'kis was present at the Jedi Temple when he witnessed a hologram of General Grievous torturing Jedi Master Eeth Koth. Ma'kis was disturbed by this and left with most of the other Jedi present when dismissed by Grand Master Yoda.
Behind the Scenes
In the episode Nightsisters, Ma'kis, along with Padawan Ahsoka Tano, led a Republic fleet to reinforce Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker in the battle of Sullust. During the battle, Ma'kis, Tano, Kenobi and Skywalker were able to shoot down the starfighter of Dark Side Acolyte Asajj Ventress, forcing it to crash land in the hangar of the Separatist command ship. When the Jedi landed to confront Ventress, she viciously attacked them. Though Ma'kis fought skillfully, Ventress overpowered and defeated him.
However, this portion of the episode was rewritten with only Obi-Wan and Anakin in the battle, maintaining Ma'kis's original death in Purge. The original battle, though cut from the final version, was revealed in the deleted/alternate scene of the episode, shown in the Jedi Archives of the Blu-Ray release of Season 3.
