Asajj Ventress

Bounty Hunter

Details

Biography

An assassin trained in the ways of the dark side by Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress yearned to be considered a true Sith, but such status wasn't allowed under the Sith's Rule of Two. Ventress fought with twin sabers, and clashed with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker many times.

Ventress served Dooku faithfully, but the Count betrayed her as a demonstration of loyalty to Darth Sidious, telling his own troops to turn their guns on her. She returned to Dathomir, where she sought revenge with the help of her people, the mysterious Nightsisters.
