Luminara was very calm, physically disciplined, level-headed and patient, as she rarely lost her temper. She was confident in her abilities, but this confidence became overconfidence and arrogance, when she fought Asajj Ventress and almost lost her life. Luminara was grateful to Ahsoka Tano for saving her from Asajj and told Ahsoka she owed her life to her. She was one of the few Jedi to easily connect with her companions and she complemented them during battle.
Luminara greatly cared for her former apprentice, Barriss Offee, but nevertheless she maintained a very professional relationship with her. Keeping in mind the Jedi sense of detachment, Luminara was prepared to let go of Barriss in the event of her possible death.
As a Jedi, Luminara was intelligent and wise. Despite her serious demeanor, she had a sense of humor, as she stifled a snort of laughter at Anakin Skywalker's "simple logic", during the Second Battle of Geonosis.
