Mace Windu was a Jedi Master during the Clone Wars. Windu held the position of second chair on the Jedi High Council and was considered to rival Master Yoda in both power and skill.

Windu held the title of Master of the Order but passed it on to Yoda following the First Battle of Geonosis. Windu created Form VII: Vaapad lightsaber combat, which focuses on dark emotions.

Battle of Ryloth

After answering a plea from the Republic Senate, the Council sent Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano to breach the Separatist blockade around the planet of Ryloth so as to make way for a ground assault aimed at freeing the Twi'lek people from Separatist occupation.

When the initial engagement with the blockade proved unsuccessful, resulting in huge losses on the side of the Republic, Master Windu warned Skywalker that he was allocated only a single planetary rotation of Ryloth to breach the blockade, as the invasion needed to move forward with or without having broken the Separatist's defenses. As such, Skywalker and Tano utilized less than conventional tactics to defeat the Separatist warships; making way for the forces led by Masters Windu and Kenobi to begin their ground assault of the oppressed planet.

Kenobi and Ghost Company set off to land on Nabat, which the Jedi planned on using as a landing point. However, proton cannons from below attacked their Acclamator-class assault ships above, and after Clone Commander Ponds reported that the guns were breaking through their shields, Windu ordered Kenobi to destroy the guns and allow the transports to land. Kenobi was later successful, and after the transports landed, the Jedi and the clone troopers set off for the capital city of Lessu to retake it and free the planet.


Mace Windu on Ryloth

Windu went to liberate the capital of Ryloth along with members of Lightning Squadron. To accomplish this, Windu was forced to rely on his considerable negotiation skills, as he knew he would require the aid of Cham Syndulla; leader of the Twi'lek Freedom Fighters. However, Syndulla did not trust Ryloth's Senator Orn Free Taa, whilst Taa himself feared that Syndulla planned to seize power. After learning that the Separatists had begun to bomb innocent local villages however, Syndulla at least agreed to talk with Senator Taa.

Windu acted as moderator during the talks, and ultiamtely was able to form an alliance between the two out of their mutual wish to see their people free. Syndulla then added his forces to Windu's and the pair managed to retake Lessu from Tambor. In addition, Windu managed to capture the Separatist leader, Wat Tambor before he could escape.

Later Life

Windu later partook in several talks with the council as well as the Battle of Malastare and Mission to Black Stall Station.

The Bad Batch

"The Droids have over run our main production facility and it is only a matter of time before the Separatists have taken Anaxes compromising our entire reserve fleet"
―Windu conferring with Skywalker during the Battle for Anaxes[src]

Windu and Skywalker at the Republic base.

Later in the war, Mace Windu lead the 91st Reconnaissance Corps along with Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and the 501st Legion to the planet Anaxes which was under attack by Admiral Trench. The Separatists had gained the upper hand in the battle despite weeks of battle. At the Republic base, Windu confers with Skywalker after the Droids have over run their main production unit which indicates them losing. 501st Legion Captain Rex and 212th Attack Battalion Commander Cody arrive and Rex shares his theory on why Trench has been winning the battle that he has his algorithm and is using it to win the battle. Only two troopers ARC Troopers Echo and Fives, who are both dead. Windu and Skywalker immediately agrees and Windu orders them to take a small squad of troopers to go behind enemy lines to infiltrate the Cyber Center.

Lightsaber Techniques

Windu was a very powerful Jedi, assumed to be second in Force ability only to Master Yoda. He created his own lightsaber form, a variation of Form VII called Vaapad. It brought him dangerously close to the Dark Side, as Windu created the form as an avenue for his own dark impulses. He was the only Jedi who did not turn to the Dark Side after mastering this form.

Behind the Scenes

Mace Windu is voiced by Terrence C. Carson in the TV show Clone Wars and film Samuel L. Jackson.
