Mace Windu was a strong speaker. He rarely had to use the Force to persuade others into doing something. Once fourteen Gank killers surrounded Windu. No master would be able to deflect that many laser bolts. Windu said to them "It's your desicion." Each of the Ganks then layed their weapons on the ground. Mace's words were always strong whether speaking to the Senate or an army.
Windu traveled much as a Jedi. He spent much time on his homeplanet and learned how to raise deadly akk dogs. On Wroona he fought pirates on the ship Temblor. He then helped fight against the Arkanian Revolution and the Arkanian mercenary Gorm the Dissolver. He then fought in the Stark Hyperdrive Conflict.
Windu trained dozens of Jedi. He helped train council member Depa Bilaba after rescueing her from space pirates. Mace had served for a decade on the council as of the Battle of Naboo. He was forty years old. He shared the title of Senior Representative of the Jedi Council with Master Yoda. Windu was often the public speaker and the contact between the chancellor and the council. He was often called by the chancellor to mediate disputes between warring groups.
A year before the Battle of Naboo, the Yinchorri started a campaign of conquest. They were being instructed by Darth Sidious and were immune to Jedi mind tricks. Windu led a group of Jedi to the Yinchorri to stop their campaign. He walked right into a trap and many Jedi died before they destroyed the Yinchorri. Micah Giiett died during that Battle and Windu recommended Ki-Adi-Mundi for the position. He was accepted. Windu was told to send negotiators to Naboo right before the Battle of Naboo. He sent Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi. When Jinn and Kenobi returned Windu found out that the Sith had risen again and that Jinn found Anakin Skywalker, the possible being to bring balance to the Force. Windu meditated on this boy prophecy but was unable to figure anything out. He did know that the Force was on the edge of catastrophe and was not sure if Anakin would help balance or tip the Force into chaos.
After Naboo, Windu went to Malastare with Depa Bilaba. They got caught in a war started by Lannik terrorists. The terrorists used akk dogs, native to Windu's homeworld. That led him to Nar Shaddaa where he and Bilaba stopped an animal smuggling ring.
Ten years after the Battle of Naboo, Count Dooku emerged. He started a seperatist movement. Windu, the council, and Senate had their hands full with this problem. When Obi-Wan Kenobi traveled to Geonosis and found that the Geonosians, Dooku, and Trade Federation were creating an army, Windu decided it was time to strike. He led a team of two hundred Jedi into battle on Geonosis. Many perished from the droid battalions, and it was only Master Yoda showing up with the Republic's new clone army that turned the tides of war. During the Arena Battle on Geonosis, Windu killed Jango Fett in front of his son Boba. What he did not know is that this incident would turn Boba into the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy.
