An'ya Kuro, who renamed herself the Dark Woman, was a controversial Jedi Master who served the Jedi Order in the final years of the Galactic Republic.
A secretive and mysterious Jedi, Kuro abandoned her name as a sign of selflessness. Her Padawan training methods were considered unorthodox, and the end results were a mixed bag. After the loss of her Padawan Aurra Sing, she went into a self-imposed exile, but later rejoined the Jedi.
During the Clone Wars, Kuro chose to serve the Republic as a spy, and because of this her activities during the Clone Wars were mostly unrecorded. During the onset of the Great Jedi Purge, Kuro went into hiding until she was discovered and struck down by Darth Vader.
