Attack of the Clones
Shu Mai, as President of the powerful Commerce Guild, pledged her forces to fight against the Galactic Republic. Mai was the only Separatist leader to support Count Dooku in secret, knowing that it amounts to treason. Though the Commerce Guild didn't openly back the Separatists, Shu Mai's homing spider droids began to fight on the battlefields on the break of the Clone Wars.
Revenge of the Sith
During the Clone Wars, Mai served as a member of the Separatist Council alongside Nute Gunray, Wat Tambor, San Hill, and others and during the course of the war she was obsessed with status and power. Mai along with the rest of the Council first hid on the sinkhole planet Utapau until the death of Count Dooku when the Separatist Commander General Grievous moved the Council to Mustafar. Shu Mai awaited her fate on the volcanic Mustafar along with the rest of the Separatist leaders. Darth Vader arrived and executed Mai as well as the other Separatists.
