    After Giiett's death, Swan continued her training under Jedi Master Plo Koon. Just before the Clone Wars, Swan served on a team of Jedi diplomats attempting to bring peace during the Sepan Civi War.

    Swan was one of the 212-member Jedi task force that arrived on Geonosis on a rescue mission to free fellow Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, his Padawan Anakin Skywalker, and Senator Padme Amidala from Separatist forces in the Petranaki arena. She fought in and survived the ensuing Battle of Geonosis.

    Swan served as a Jedi General in the Clone Wars. She fought in such conflicts as the Battle of Aargonar. During the Battle of Coruscant, she piloted a Jedi interceptor against the Separatist fleet.

    Six months after the Mission to Geonosis, Swan was involved in the Battle of Amaltanna, and led several clone troopers to assault a fortress owned by a CIS commander. All the clones were killed but most of the battle droids were destroyed too. The fortress, named Impregnable, was the personal castle of the Separatist leader and, as the name describes, impenetrable to large armies, Jedi and even orbital bombardment.

    Swan entered the fortress alone, seeing the massacre that had not only occurred outside, but also inside the castle. Through comlinks and cameras placed all around the fortress the CIS leader could follow every move of Swan's and kept mocking the Jedi about the impossible task of ever getting to the commander's chamber.

    He taunted her by saying that his own population of Amaltanna, loyal to the Galactic Republic, had attacked his fortress, as he had sent resources to the Separatists. But the Amaltannians fought in vain, and their assault was hopeless, because of the seeming-endless waves of battle droids and then the castle's inner defenses.

    Against Swan the CIS commander first sent small flying spider droids on a falling bridge, and then a pair of B2 super battle droids in the communications room, which Bultar quickly took care of.

    She also destroyed the comm array, before arriving at the immense gate guarding the commander's private chamber and control room. The commander told her that she had no possible chance to get into his chambers, and as an answer Swan pierced her lightsaber in the control panel on the wall next to the door, destroying the door-open mechanism. Now it wasn't possible at all to get inside his room, but as Bultar walked out of the fortress, the commander realized that it wouldn't be possible to ever get out of the room either.

    Swan survived the execution of Order 66, and a month afterwards would go on to participate with fellow survivor Tsui Choi in the Conclave on Kessel, an ill-fated attempt at revenge against Darth Vader. However, the plan failed, and fellow Jedi Koffi Arana murdered her for her lightsaber during the fight against Vader. When the Galactic Empire emerged, official records compiled by Sate Pestage stated that Swan was killed by her fellow Jedi in a power struggle. This was one of Sate Pestage's only true entries regarging the Jedi Purge.

    Powers And Abilities

    Bultar Swan was trained as a Jedi Guardian, leading her to focus more on the physical aspect of the Force, becoming a master martial artist and acrobat. Swan excelled at drawing opponents toward her by minimizing her own physical movements and focusing on defense, then suddenly striking forward in a flawless attack of blinding alacrity. Bultar had never killed an opponent before the Battle of Geonosis. This was merely a statistic to her, as she knew the time would come for her to take a life.
