A Force-sensitive Human female, Talilia Weden was brought to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant and learned the ways of the Force by the Jedi Order. After years of training as a Padawan learner, she passed her Trials of Knighthood and made it to the rank of Jedi Knight. Accepting missions from the Jedi High Council, Weden was active during the Separatist Crisis, a time of strife and conflict between the Galactic Republic and the growing Confederacy of Independent Systems.
When the Moulee-rah Patogga was impounded at a Xizor Transport Systems refueling station on the planet Karnst, Crew Chief Asador Leen of XTS contacted Republic Judicial Forces after suspecting that the light freighter was carrying illegal substances. With the Judiciaries ready to depart Coruscant, the High Council assigned Weden to accompany them and ensure a smooth boarding of the ship. Upon arrival, Weden led her team aboard the ship and discovered 3.5 million credits worth of illegal ryll spice. Arresting Captain Barada Rakul and his crew of five, it was quickly determined they were not aware of their illicit cargo.
After the owners of the freighter, the Besadii Hutt clan, were notified of the discovery, the other clans began to voice their opinions. Blaming each other for the cargo's transport, the Besadii insisted that the freighter actually belonged to the Desilijic clan and that they had planted the spice to create bad blood between the Republic and the Besadii.
Later on, as the rising tensions between the Republic and Confederacy came to a head when Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi, Padawan Anakin Skywalker and Senator Padmé Amidala were captured on Geonosis and sentenced to death by the Separatist Council. When Master of the Order Mace Windu assembled a massive strike team to rescue the captives, Talilia was among 200 Jedi that joined him and disembarked from Coruscant and set course to Geonosis. Landing on the plains of the desert world just outside the Petranaki Arena, Talilia and her comrades stormed inside the complex, igniting her lightsaber amongst the many spectators that filled the arena's stands, and engaging the Separatist Droid Army. While fighting alongside her Jedi comrades, she was ultimately overpowered and shot down by multiple Battle Droids that surrounded her.
