Shamila was a female Human Jedi Padawan who lived during the latter years of the Galactic Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire. She was trained as a Jedi Padawan by Zabrak Jedi Master Loria Ashukahwa until Loria’s death near the end of the Clone Wars. Shortly after the execution of Order 66, Jedi Knight Vhiran Ashukahwa became her new Master and brought her along to the planet Zaloriis, where several Jedi were gathering to discuss the future. After the Empire attacked Zaloriis, she traveled the Galaxy with her Master and Jedi Knight Bultar Swan to evade the Empire and prepare for resistance against it. Shamila was nearly killed in an Imperial attack over the planet Kessel at the time the Conclave on Kessel took place below. However, she awoke two weeks later on Coruscant, where she discovered that she had been found and saved by the Empire and that her Master appeared to have joined to Empire. Vhiran would eventually convince Shamila to do the same.
Powers and abilities
Shamila was discovered to be Force sensitive shortly after birth and received Jedi training from a very young age. During her time as a Youngling, she was taught the basics of lightsaber combat and use of the Force. Both of these were developed further after Shamila became was chosen as Padawan learner by Jedi Knight Loria Ashukahwa, who was determined to bring out the great potential she sensed in the girl.
In addition to her Force sensitivity and Jedi training, Shamila was quick in many ways. A quick learner, she obtained a great deal of knowledge about the known galaxy during her many journeys with her Master. In addition, she proved to have remarkably keen senses and was able to rapidly read and determine the state of her surroundings. Furthermore, she was physically quite quick and agile, able to both move at great speed and get in and out of most places with ease.
Finally, despite appearing petite and fragile, at age twelve Shamila already showed to possess exceptional physical endurance, especially for someone her age. Her taking a direct punch to the head from a veteran ARC trooper on Nar Shaddaa, without any discernible physical damage, and surviving a fall from an incredible height on Kessel are testament to this.
