The humid, forested world of Felucia is teeming with fungal life forms and enormous plants. Near the end of the Clone Wars, Jedi general Aayla Secura leads a mission to Felucia to rescue captured Jedi and stop a plot to poison the planet. Accompanying Secura is the 327th Star Corps of clone troopers led by Commander Bly. As the team picks its way through the dense foliage, Bly receives a transmission to enact Order 66. In an instant, Secura is struck down by the troops she trusted with her life.
One of the few Jedi to survive the Battle of Geonosis, Aayla Secura has led many campaigns during the Clone Wars. The athletic and graceful Twi'lek has no idea that this mission will end in a deadly and unexpected manner.
Clone Commander Bly:
Clone commanders were part of ARC trooper Alpha's advanced training program that allowed certain clones to maintain a sense of individuality and independent thinking, critical to the role of leading the infantry forces in battle.
The clone troopers in the 327th Star Corps serve with Aayla Secura during the Clone Wars, under the command of Commander Bly. The troopers have taken part in battles on many worlds including New Holstice, Honoghr, Anzat, and Saleucami.
