Letta Turmond

Suspect Number One

Details

Description

Hardened by a life in the working class levels of Coruscant, Letta Turmond had a jaundiced view of the Jedi Order and the leadership of the Galactic Republic. Her husband, Jackar Bowmani, was a technician who worked in the Jedi Temple, and devoted his life to supporting the Order. With the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Bowmani's expertise was used to arm Republic gunships, and it galled Letta to see what was once an institution of peace and justice transformed into an instrument of war. She became an activist opposed to the Jedi involvement of the war, but her beliefs were so radical that they apparently crossed the line into terrorism, when she sacrificed her own husband to launch a deadly strike against the Temple in a stark display of protest.

Jedi Order

Public opinion of the Jedi Order soured considerably as the Clone Wars dragged on and the Senate kept funneling more and more resources into the conflict. Though the Jedi never sought to be soldiers, they had no choice but to take stewardship of the clone army when it became evident that the Separatists were mounting for all-out war.

Jedi Temple

Letta Turmond's husband, Jackar Bowmani, worked in the Jedi Temple hangar, where he applied his expertise in munitions and nano-technology in maintaining the weapons systems of the Republic gunships. Turmond exploited Jackar's inside access to the Temple, gruesomely turning the unwitting mechanic into a deadly explosive.

Anakin Skywalker

As he was absent from the Jedi Temple at the time of the explosion and thus above suspicion, Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano led the investigation in the Temple bombing. Skywalker and Ahsoka's search for clues led them to Letta's apartment, where the Jedi apprehended her.

Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka Tano's detective skills uncovered evidence of nano-droids in the food disposal unit of Letta Turmond's apartment. This alone was enough to brand Turmond as a person of interest, but when she fled from the Jedi and inadvertently tipped off that she knew her missing husband was dead, she became the prime suspect.
