Puroth was a female Eirrauc who served as a Jedi Master of the Old Jedi Order, living during the final period of the Old Galactic Republic. Due to this unique physical feature, Puroth was one of the best swordsman and had taken Nystammall as her apprentice during the Clone Wars, an ongoing conflict between the Republic and the Separatists. On the planet Tovarskl, Puroth fought against the deadly General Grievous killed dozens of Jedi Knights in battle, including her apprentice. With four arms herself, she was a physically equal opponent to Grievous. Unfortunately, Grievous proved to be just a bit better, cutting off all four limbs of the Eirrauc Jedi and sending her to join her Padawan in the Force.
Hailing from the world of Eirrauus, Puroth was a female Eirrauc who was connected to the Force. Discovered as a young age, Puroth was brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant. During her life in the Jedi Temple, Puroth received a lot of training and learned the ways of the Force before ascending to the rank of Jedi Master. Having constructed a four blue-bladed lightsabers, which she wielded in all her four hands, Master Puroth selected a Vuvrian named Nystammall as her Padawan. Training him to the rank of Jedi Knight, Master Puroth worked with him well after his leaving her tutelage.
When the Clone Wars erupted across the galaxy between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Master Puroth took up the rank of General in the Grand Army of the Republic. Leading clone troopers in the war, Puroth continued to work with her former Padawan on many missions, Together, the pair were dispatched to the planet Tovarskl where they were assigned to defend the Republic from the Separatist Droid Army. Encountering the leader of the Separatist army, General Grievous, Master Puroth engaged the Kaleesh cyborg in a lightsaber duel only to be slain by the deadly warrior. Grievous took Master Puroth's lightsaber as a prize, adding it to his collection of Jedi weapons.
Becoming one of his favorite lightsabers, Grievous used it in battle with Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi on Utapau. During Kenobi's battle with the cyborg, he was able to remove the hand that wielded Master Puroth's weapon, at which time the weapon was lost forever.
