    Half the jedi council is missing during the battle of Geonosis. Where are Saesee Tinn, Even Piel, Depi Billaba, Adi Gallia, Yarael Poof, and Oppo Rancis?

    Slimy!

    They took the main soldier class of Jedi. There's no reason to risk the lives of the entire council. Plus, Mace estimated an easy victory against the group of Geonosians. He didn't know that his jedi wouldn't be enough.

    Saesee Tinn was there, although you don't see him until the survivors are rounded up. I'm pretty sure Depa Billiba was there too. Isn't she the Asian female Jedi? If Oppo Rancis fought, I'd be in a home right now--that dude freaks me out. Oh, and according to the EU, Adi Gallia was providing air support for the ground battle in her starfighter.

    Mace Windu does say he took what was available. In the novel, it mentions less than 200-300 of the ten thousand Jedi in the Order were actually on Coruscant at the time due to various missions and such. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to assume some of the Council members were out on important missions, especially considering the civil upheaval going on the in the galaxy.

    When you see the group of jedi survivors and mace is shouting up at Dooku, you can see Adi Gallia from behind. You can see that weird headress

    As slimybug notes, it's a relative -- a cousin according to the OS.

    Adi Gallia

    Additionally, I think it would make sense that a few Jedi would stay behind, one, to look after the exceptionally young Jedi like the ones Yoda was teaching earlier in the film, and two, to have at least one Council-level voice remaining on Coruscant in case the Council needed for some unexpected reason to have a voice available to advise the political offices of the Surpreme Chancellor and the Senators.

    No, you can see Eeth Koth there. I never saw Oppo, and he's kinda hard to miss. Also, if Poof is dead, then who on the Jedi Council took his place. The only new Jedi Council member I saw on the OS is Shaak Ti, who I assumed just replaced Yaddle.

    Slimy!

    Eeth Koth cannot be seen on Geonosis, that was Agen Kolar, but Eeth was killed when his gunship was shot down. We saw this shot onscreen, although they never filmed a scene for Eeth, the EU just killed him off in that explosion. I'm not sure whether Oppo Rancisis was there or not, but I believe a game says Even Piell was there.

    Coleman Trebor took Yarael's place on the Council.

    Even Piell wasn't there, or at least if he was, then he survived, according to Clone Wars Chapter 21.

    Oppo Rancisis is a reknowned Jedi strategist, my guesss is that he accompanied Yoda to Kamino, and possibly formulated the plan for the ground assault to rescue the Jedi in the arena.

    Eeth Koth was presumed dead along with Tarados Gon and Sora Bulq when their gunship was downed after escaping the arena.

    Depa Billaba remained at the Jedi Temple in order to lead the supervisation of the Jedi Younglings.

    Adi Gallia returned from Lok with Siri Tachi and Nym's pirates and fought an air battle above Geonosis.

    adi gallia is in a prototype jedi star fighter above geonosis. she escorted the ships that transported the clone troops and she fought in the space battle above geonosis. She's the main character of jedi starfighter which was released to the ps2 and xbox about a month before epII came out. It leads right into the battle of geonosis.

    Poof died in one of the comics. I believe it was the first Zam Wessell comic.

    In regards to Oppo, I also find him a very odd character. It would be interesting to see how they would make him move since he is a serpentine creature. Another interesting thing about him is that, according to the OS databank, he was a master of malacia, a Jedi technique that produced powerful dizziness and nausea in his targets. The results cause incapacitation. That would be cool to see. It would be interesting to see some scenes with Oppo in ROTS or at least some other new Jedi abilities.

    ****The only new Jedi Council member I saw on the OS is Shaak Ti, who I assumed just replaced Yaddle.****


    Just because a Jedi is no longer on the council doesn't mean they are dead. According to the visual dictionary: There are 12 council seats, 4 permanent seats, 4 semi-permanent seats, and 4 rotating seats. It's possible that some of the Jedi who are no longer on the council in ATOC have those semi-perm or rotating seats. Although Yaddle seems to be dead for sure.

    saesee tiin - probably in his starfighter as we always see him
    even piel - too short to fight any real battles
    depi billaba - who?
    adi gallia - killed between tpm and aotc
    yarael poof - same as adi
    oppo rancis - how do you expect him to stand up? he has no legs!

    Tiin can be seen in the circle of Jedi in the arena before Yoda arrives.

    depi billaba - who?

    Adi Gallia is still on the Council when Obi-Wan and Anakin meet with the Council after Zam Wesell's second attempt to assasinate Amidala. The footage used for the establishing shot was a blending of footage that was taken from what was filmed for TPM and new footage filmed for AotC. Production wise, they attempted to replace the actor playing Adi Gallia and have the character be in the arena on Geonosis, but the new actor and the former actor ended up looking too different for it to be pulled off, thus the new one was given the backstory of being Adi Gallia's cousin.

    At least, this is what I've come to understand happened from all the things I've read over the years since AotC's release.
