Mace Windu

Star Wars Character: Mace Windu

Mace Windu is one of the most respected Jedi in the order. He serves for a while as head of the Jedi Council. He accompanies Anakin Skywalker to confront and arrest Palpatine, the Sith Lord. He dies when he hesitates to strike down Palpatine due to Anakin’s reminder of the Jedi way. Ironically, culpability for his death is the final straw in driving Anakin to the Dark Side of the Force.
