    Lura Tranor was a Human female Jedi Master who served the Old Jedi Order during the final period of the Galactic Republic.


    A Force-sensitive Human female, Lura Tranor was brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and learned in the ways of the Force. She later attained the rank of Jedi Master by the time before the Separatist Crisis happened. Selecting the young Human Initiate Jyl Somtay as her Padawan, the Master-Padawan duo trained together for several years until Somtay achieved the rank of Jedi Knight.

    At the height of the Separatist Crisis, the tensions between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems came to a head on Geonosis when Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padmé Amidala of Naboo were captured by the Separatists were sentenced to be executed by Count Dooku and the Separatist Council. When Master of the Order Mace Windu formed a strike team to rescue the Jedi and senator, Master Tranor answered the call while her former apprentice was away. Following her fellow Jedi to the dusty world, Master Tranor stormed into the Petranaki Arena and took up her green-bladed lightsaber against the Separatist Droid Army. Despite her bravery and skill, Master Tranor was soon surrounded and struck down by blaster fire during the terrible battle.
