Usma was a female Jedi Master who served the Jedi Order and the Galactic Republic during the Great Galactic War with the resurgent Sith Empire. One of the Order's most celebrated duelists, Usma was cut down in front of her apprentice by the Sith Lord Praven during the Sacking of Coruscant in 3,653 BBY.
A female Force-sensitive, Usma had risen to the rank of Jedi Master within the Jedi Order by the year 3,653 BBY, and had taken on at least one young Padawan during the Great Galactic War with the Sith Empire. Usma was widely acknowledged as one of the Order's most famous duelists, and she and her apprentice were present at the Jedi Temple on Coruscant when the Empire attacked the Republic capital in 3,653 BBY.
During the early stages of the fighting, a Sith strike force led by the Sith Lords Darth Malgus and Lord Adraas attacked the Temple, and Usma and her Padawan rallied to the Temple's defense under the leadership of Jedi Master Ven Zallow. However, a Sith Pureblood by the name of Praven engaged Usma in a fierce duel during the battle, and despite the Jedi Master's skill she was struck down and killed in front of her student.
