"I am fear. I am the queen of a blood-soaked planet and an architect of genocide. I have helped to crack the galaxy in half with this war and conquered every enemy I have ever faced—including death. All except for you"

Asajj Ventress was a feared commander for the Confederacy of Independent Systems. Ventress was also Dooku's best agent and assassin during the Clone Wars.


Early LifeEdit

Ventress was originaly a Nightsister from Dathomir, but her mother

Ventress and her Mother

Ventress, as a child, with her mother before she gave her up.

at the behest of Mother Talzin, was forced to give her up to a criminal named Hal'Sted. Hal'Sted took Ventress to to Rattatak where she was raised. However, he was then killed in an assault by Weequay raiders. She would have most likely died were it not for the arrival of a Jedi Knight by the name of Ky Narec. Stranded on Rattatak after his starship crashed, Narec sensed Ventress's connection to the Force after force pushing one of the raiders and, although Narec was cut off from the rest of the Jedi Order, he decided to train Ventress as his Padawan.[1]

The Master and Padawan duo became heroes to the people, ending wars and uniting rival armies. But tales and rumors of Ventress's new powers—her ability to move things with her mind and influence the minds of others—concerned the other warlords, and under one of the warlord's leadership, they banded together to kill Ventress and her mentor. Tragically, the warlords would indeed manage to kill Narec, but the pain of his loss combined with Ventress's own undisciplined skills sent her spiraling down the path toward the dark side of the Force.[2]

When Narec died at the hands of a Weequay raider
AV & KN (d)

Flashback of the day Ventress's master, Ky Narec was killed.

[1], she shaved and tattooed her head and left her innocence behind. Her skull was striped with twelve marks, one for each of the twelve warlords she had killed after swearing their deaths. Ventress, now in control of the land once held by the warlords who had murdered her Master, had a castle built on Rattatak, from where she controlled her new kingdom. Ventress kept Narec's lightsaber as a memento of the good times with her mentor, and developed a hatred of the Jedi, who she believed had abandoned Narec.[2]

Clone WarsEdit

Initiation on RattatakEdit

"The dark side is strong in me, for I am Sith."
"A bold claim, but you are not Sith. You wear the trappings of the Sith, you fight like the Sith, but this can be imitated, however. You lack a vital quality found in all Sith. Sith have no fear, and I sense much fear in you.
―Asajj Ventress & Dooku

Ventress was still in command on Rattatak when the Clone Wars began with the Battle of Geonosis. After Sev'rance Tann was killed on Krant, Count Dooku, alias Darth Tyranus, went in search of a new disciple to serve him as a commander in the Confederacy of Independent Systems. He traveled to Rattatak, where he was met by a waiting humanoid co-conspirator. As he sat beside the Count in a nearby observation chamber, this robed individual was silently and swiftly dispatched by a dark, cloaked figure who then took his seat. Dooku noted the presence of the killer, but initially voiced doubt about her combat abilities—until Ventress threw herself into a gladiatorial pit fight in the Cauldron and easily annihilated such all the foes assembled there.

Dooku applauded Ventress's talents, but she then went too far by declaring herself a Sith, and claimed that Dooku knew nothing of the dark side. Dooku decided to "enlighten" her. After rendering her unconscious with a blast of Sith lightning and later defeating her in a duel, Dooku presented her to Darth Sidious, who approved his choice, and ordered her to kill a certain Jedi—Anakin Skywalker. After her departure, Sidious told Tyranus that it was irrelevant whether or not Ventress succeeded. Either way, Lord Sidious won. In fact, events turned out better than even he had planned. Not only did Skywalker draw on his rage, but Ventress survived and the two Sith gained a valuable assassin. [3]Before Ventress left, Dooku presented her with a pair of new lightsabers that belonged to his former apprentice, Komari Vosa. These lightsabers could be joined together to make a light-saberstaff.[4]

went to Ohma-D'un to test out Jenna Zan Arbor's chemical weapon known as Swamp gas. There they along with specially fit super battle droids, poisoned and killed the Gungan Colonists. Ventress and Durge then waited for the Republic forces to arrive. Durge and the new variations of the B2 super battle droids attacked and released the gas upon the jedi strike team. While the Jedi were being occupied by Durge and the droids, Ventress made herself appear for the first time as she decapitated Jedi Master Glaive from behind. Then, she discarded her cloak on Glaive's corpse and before she dueled Kenobi, she stated these words with a hint of her past:

Ventress then attacked Jedi General Kenobi, but admired his speed for dodging his attack. Ventress tried to cripple him in a Force Grip. Durge then tried to help her defeat kenobi just they were about to shoot his head off when the late Glaive's Padawan, Zule Xiss, attacked him, causing him only to hit Kenobi in the left shoulder and to have Ventress release her grip.

As Ventress told Durge to go after Kenobi's apprentice and clone officer before they could sabotage the Separatist efforts of a Naboo invasion, she used the dark side to bring the dead Gungans to rise up as an army to back her up in taking on Kenobi and Xiss. The reanimated Gungans were destroyed, but the Jedi's strength were being depleted by the swamp gas. Ventress sliced off the fallen Glaive's apprentice's left arm, though the Padawan had managed to hold on. She nearly killed Kenobi, only to be outnumbered by the enemy when the unaffected Skywalker and the clone officer, who destroyed the Separatist fueling station, arrived.

Seeing that Skywalker wasn't cowardly as she thought, Ventress vowed to her assigned target she would remember that at their next encounter. She jumped for a ride with Durge, who was using his jetpack to pick her up for the Separatist retreat—though now the Jedi would undoubtedly remember the new face of war. Also, while Durge said that Dooku would consider the mission a failure, Ventress did not for she knew Kenobi's face and heart.[5]


Mace Windu: "Who and what are you?"
Ventress: "I am your humble servant, Mace Windu. I trust you're pleased.'"
Mace Windu: ""Pleased?!""
―Ventress meets Jedi Master Windu for the first time.[src]
Ventress trained at Dooku's fortress. Three months after the Battle of Geonosis, she was sent to Ruul,
AV on Ruul

where Mace Windu, Senior Member of the Jedi High Council, was to meet with the Jedi dissidents led by Sora Bulq. Bulq had been converted to the dark side by Dooku after being captured on Bakura following the Battle of Geonosis, and was part of Dooku's plan. Ventress was sent in as an assassin, whom the dissidents were led to believe had been hired by Windu. Windu eventually uncovered the truth, but not before Ventress killed Bulq's former Padawan Mira (to the Weequay's remorse). While Windu confronted Bulq, Ventress later ambushed Rhad Tarn, in whom she saw promise and persuaded him to no longer be a "weak pawn of the Republic." Together, they dueled K'Kruhk and Sian Jeisel, who were too late to save Rhad from Ventress' lies. As Jeisel killed Rhad in self-defense, Ventress wounded K'Kruhk and was about to kill him when Jeisel (whose loyalty Ventress respected) blocked her attack. Then Windu, who had rendered Bulq unconscious in a lightsaber duel, arrived on the scene.

Though Ventress briefly dueled Mace Windu, she realized she was no match for the Korun Master's skill in Vaapad—even using her deadly saberstaff—and fled Ruul with Bulq in a solar sailer.[4]

then met with Kenobi again a month after her encounter with Master Windu after Ruul [6]on Queyta. There she fought against kenobi and 4 other jedi for the antidote to the swamp gas chemical weapon. Ventress made quick work of the jedi team leaving only Masters Kenobi and Fay for last. Ventress was then mentally attacked by Fay, who Ventress then threatened to to crush her heart before she fell. Unfortunately, Kenobi got the antedote from her.

Ventress then stabbed Fay in the back. Ventress then saw kenobi hanging from the cliff. See that, Ventress offered Kenobi the chance to join the Confederacy, but Kenobi refused the Dathomirian and he escaped the planet with the antidote.[7]

Sometime after this event, Ventress then fought against Jedi Master Darrus Jeht who was falling to the dark side in a jungle. Jeht was then stabbed him in the chest with her lightsabers, but then he attacked her with Force lightning before being rescued by clone troopers. She contacted Dooku after the fight, who told her she had done well in her "exercise" and that he would reward her with one day to recover before she was to move on to her primary target after that.[8]

Muunilist & Yavin 4Edit

4 months after the 1st battle of Geonosis, Ventress then went to besieged Muunilist to carry out her first official mission; kill Jedi Commander Skywalker. Flying her Fanblade starfighter, Ventress attacked Skywalker over Muunilinst[9][10] and then lured him to the jungle moon of Yavin 4.[11]

Once there, Ventress destroyed both Skywalker's starfighter and the clone squad that kenobi.[11] Ventress and Skywalker then fought each other in one of Yavin 4's temple. Their duel ended when Skywalker, fueled by his rage, twisted Ventress's left hand and grabed one of her lightsabers. Skywalker, after disarming her, through her into a ravine, where she wounded and still alive[12][13]

Sometime after this, Ventress was then worshipped as a goddess on the planet Mauk.[14] Also during this time, Ventress developed an obsession to go after Kenobi and Skywalker, course Kenobi was always her favorite to go after.[1] Ventress saw Kenobi as the center of her rage, no matter how hard she tried to dismiss it.[15] Ventress's obsession for the two jedi would often get in the way of her completing her missions.[16]

Ord CestusEdit

Obi-Wan Kenobi: "Then your droid order was a sham?"
Ventress: "Intended to frighten Palpatine and your precious Jedi Council into an overreaction. I would say our plan worked, wouldn't you? The resulting slaughter will tip the galaxy in our favor. Then once we do clone the tissue, who needs Cestus?"
Kit Fisto: "You're a monster."
―Ventress reveals the Separatists' plans for Ord Cestus to Jedi Generals Kenobi and Fisto[src]
Ventress was then sent secretly by Dooku to Ord Cestus to make sure that the Five Families of Cestus Cybernetics continue to make the JK-13 security droids, known as "Jedi Killers," for the Separatist cause. Unfortunately Dooku did not tell the family when and who was coming to see them. This gave ventress the time to sneak. Also, Dooku's plan was to expose the 5 families to Republic, expose their control on Cestus and Separatist allegiance, and force them to bombard the planet as example to seceding worlds, which would convince other systems to join the Separatist cause. Then, the Separatists would clone the tissue of Dashta eels for many JKs in the droid army and would no longer need Cestus. {C}When Ventress arrived at the Tolmea Mountains, which held the secret base of X'Ting gang leader Trillot, she was led to him by his brother, Fizzik. She presented Trillot a gift from her master: salt, water, and windsnakes. As Trillot accepted the honor, his bodyguard Remlout, hearing that Ventress never turned down a challenge, offered her a hand-to-hand combat fight. She accepted and promised Trillot that she would spare Remlout's life, since it was "hard to find a good bodyguard these days."

Though Remlout was known to be Trillot's best bodyguard, he could not lay a finger on Ventress as she leaped from his every charge and, through the Force, won the challenge against him.

After Remlout was taken to a medic, Ventress and Trillot discussed the business at hand. However, Trillot mentioned that Jedi General Kenobi had come to Cestus to negotiate with Regent Duris, Ventress saw a chance to put an end to Kenobi. She knew right away that Kenobi would try to stop the JK production line, so she claimed that she would first take care of kenobi, and then speak with the Families.

When she heard that Kenobi and Barrister Doolb Snoil were invited by Regent Duris to a ball held in their honor, she decided to mess around with Kenobi, using the Quy'Tek meditations that Dooku taught her during her dark side training to hide her presence. She attended the ball, disguising herself in a X'Ting mask, where the Jedi Knight almost sensed her, while Fizzik awaited her outside. This troubled Kenobi for a moment, much to Ventress's delight.

The next day, at Trillot's base, Ventress sensed Kenobi's presence here, cloaked her own, and saw him asking Trillot, who was now in female form, to supply him with a radiation suit so that he could infiltrate the Clandes Industrial factory and find information that would expose the Five Families' Separatist allegiance. When Kenobi left, Ventress told Trillot that in order for her trap to be sprung, the crime lord would have to give Kenobi what he needed so that he could trust her.

Ventress followed Kenobi to the Cleft Head cantina in ChikatLik, which had plenty of crowds for her to blend in. She went on playing her dangerous game of masking her existence around Kenobi and when she sensed that he and Regent Duris were beginning a form a trust, she was determined to break it.

Fellow Jedi Council Member and General Fisto devised a plan of his own to expose the Five Families-Separatist connection by disguising himself as Dark Acolyte name Nemonus, which allowed him to capture the Five Families members. They believed he was a assassin sent by Dooku to "execute" them. Kenobi confronted him and in an orchestrated duel, Kenobi sent Fisto to run away and thus, with this, it appeared that Ord Cestus would shift its attention away from the Separatists. Unfortunately, they were unaware that Ventress had placed a hidden holocam in Kenobi and Fisto's "fight". Ventress then delivered the camera footage to Caiza Quill, one of the Five Families members and a cousin of Regent Duris. When Quill presented this footage to Duris, the deal with the Republic was called off, thus forcing Kenobi and Barrister Snoil to seemingly leave together.

However, Ventress knew that Kenobi would stay on Cestus and send Barrister Snoil to show evidence of the Five Families' counterfeiting , so she sent a drone fighter of probe droids to destroy the Republic cruiser, with Snoil in it. However, Snoil managed to flee in an escape pod to the planet's surface, while Fisto's secret strike team prepared to wage a rebellion against the Five Families after diplomacy failed.

Ventress met with the Five Families at their most private base in ChikatLit. She brought assurance that if the JK droids were used to conduct fair trade, the Five Families would be rewarded. She also warned them that any attempt to use as mere commerce would result in their execution. Furthermore, she discussed the matter of the Cestian resistance's 3 recent attacks and asked for Cestus' map data so she could find the resistance's hideout using the Force.

Once she had found where the resistance was hiding, Ventress ordered that the specially-made plastoid infiltration droids designed and ordered by Dooku to be tested and later sent them, with the JKs, after the Jedi and their allies. The resistance's casualties were low, but among them was Barrister Snoil, who gave his life to save Kenobi.

Shortly after, Ventress met with Regent Duris in person. She explained that if the information of Cestus Cybernetics' fraud were to be brought to the Senate, the consequences would be very simple, but severe: the Republic would bombard the planet to stop the droid foundries; the Hive Council would suffer dearly; and Duris would "personally bear the full brunt of Count Dooku's wrath." Then, the Dathomirian assured Duris that if Cestus ever needed help, Dooku and the droid leader General Grievous would "provide" them with resources and proctection.

Kenobi and Fisto traveled to Trillot's base, where they came to buy the radiation suit Trillot "promised" to supply earlier. When Trillot lured the two Jedi to a huge hive cavern beneath ChikatLik, Ventress sprung her trap as she activated a Xythan force shield to trap her opponents. Following her wake were a pair of young male X'Ting loyal to the Hive. She then ordered Trillot to leave and said that she would use the gang leader's protocol droid to translate her orders to the thugs.

After Ventress revealed Dooku's plan to the Jedi, she ordered the X'Ting thugs to attack them

so that she may have enough time to study their movements before engaging them in combat. The two Jedi knew they couldn't slaughter the X'Ting for their loyalty to the Hive, so they fought them without their lightsabers. But even when unarmed, it did no good from preventing Ventress from learning their lightsaber technique.

Fisto was able to break away from the pack, activated his lightsaber, and pursued Ventress. However, since he had never faced Ventress before, his one lightsaber was unable to block both of hers. She was able to wound Fisto in the arm. As she came in for the kill, Fisto rolled off a dock and into an underground river.

Meanwhile, Kenobi broke free and told Ventress to tell the young X'Ting to leave, but she demanded to know why. Then, something in Kenobi's answer struck a nerve in Ventress that forced her to have the droid translate the X'Tings' order to leave:

"Haven't you learned what you wanted to learn? Seen what you wanted to see? What is the point of sending these children to their deaths? They only die because they trust you. Is there nothing left in you? If not goodness, then loyalty?


―Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]
As he fought Ventress, Kenobi gained leverage initially. He blocked all the strikes, and pinned her lightsabers down. She freed her right hand and almost decapitated Kenobi. As he moved to the left, Ventress's spin-kick caught him and knocked him onto the dock. Sensing, through the Force, that Kenobi was in trouble, Fisto summed up some strength and severed the dock. It collapsed, sending Kenobi and Ventress into the river. Fisto then lost consciousness.&nbsp {C}Kenobi fitted a rebreather into his mouth, but since Ventress held two lightsabers, she could not. Obi-Wan pressed the sudden advantage until she dropped one of her lightsabers temporarily to grab her rebreather. In the murky water, Kenobi struck a blow against her ribs. Ventress headbutted Kenobi, causing them both to drop their rebreathers. Fighting underwater with no air, they realized that the first one to go up for air would be vulnerable. Seeing that she was stuck, Ventress released a black ink from her belt, and escaped.

After the deaths of the Five Families and a ARC trooper, Ventress resurfaced from the water and confronted Trillot at her bedchambers. She raised one of her lightsabers and executed the X'Ting gang leader not just for failing her, but for accidentally seeing her dreams of death and destruction. Then, she had broken two of Trillot's guards close to her ship when she prepared to leave Cestus to rendezvous with her master and General Grievous.

During takeoff, as Ventress started wondering how Kenobi was able to remain firm back in their duel, her hands were shaking with either fear or anxiety. Seeing that this was not like her at all, she dismissed the feeling with the need and hunger for action, whatever the assignment.[15]

Jabiim & aftermathEdit

3 months later, Ventress then joined in on the Battle of Jabiim in helping fellow separatist commander and Jabiim Nationalist Alto Stratus to break Jabiim from the Republic, which they achieved victory for the Confederacy.

She then took Kenobi and his ARC Trooper, who were believed dead by the Republic and Dooku himself, as her prisoners.

Ventress then transported them to her castle on Rattatak for interrogation and torture. While there, she placed a Sith torture mask on Kenobi and lied to him that Skywalker had died on Jabiim with the rest of the Republic forces, in order to break him.[17] She hoped to show Dooku how worthless Kenobi was. Ventress wanted to save the revelation of Kenobi's survival as a surprise for her master. Ventress hope that she would at last be accepted as her master's official Sith apprentice and a Dark Lord of the Sith. However, one day, after Ventress's interrogation of the ARC Trooper, Ventress promised the ARC Trooper a slow death. Afterwords, one of her guards Aidus suggested to Ventress that Kenobi be shot so that they could meet up with Durge. But Ventress explained her reasons and went to spar with a couple of Bugnaughts. While thinking about that, she was aware that Kenobi, the ARC trooper, and Osika Kirske had caused a prison break and caught up with them. Though she managed to avenge her master's death by slaying Kirske,

Kenobi stole both Ky Narec's lightsaber and Ventress's own starfighter, using the latter to reach Riflor, and leaving Ventress filled anger and rage on the landing platform.[2]


She then went to the planet Praesitlyn to get an update from Adm. Tonith on how his battle on that world was doing. Tonith, impressed by Ventress's looks, asked her to stay and help her with his battle. Ventress however refuse his offer saying she was busy elsewhere.

Ventress was then contacted by the admiral again, who told her that battle was going in his favor and that he would require any more reinforcements that Dooku Promised him. Despite, Ventress told him that when next they meet, she would be his executioner, scaring the admiral. [18]


After the defeat of Praesitlyn, Ventress killed Jedi commander Jang Li-Li in a space dogfight and brought Li-Li's severed hand and damaged lightsaber to Dooku for the deed, though Dooku mourned for Jang's death in a way since he knew her as a child before leaving the Order.&nbsp Ventress was told to bring Jedi Master Jai Maruk before him alive so that his "treaty" between him and Yoda would be complete. However, after scarring Maruk, she believed that he should have been made "# 17" in her list of dead Jedi.

Dooku's plan was set in stone. Ventress watched from her ship, Last Call, as what seemed to look like Yoda entering a starship. She then followed him to Ithor and destroyed his escorts. But after realizing through the Force that "Yoda" was actually an actor, playing as a decoy, she then decided that it would be best to capture him and destroy the ship to make it look like Yoda had actually perished.

The events on Ithor caused Republic morale to deteriorate, much to Ventress's liking. However, she was furious when news stated that she was known for killing only 11 Jedi. Despite that, she continued her objective and hired a FIII Footman droid named Solis to give her the location of the real Yoda's whereabouts.

Ventress took eighteen A-series assassin droids on the Last Call and unsuccessfully ambushed Jedi General Yoda on Phindar Station, but managed to slay only Masters Maruk and Maks Leem. Unbeknownst to Ventress, Chuff escaped and helped Yoda destroy the Last Call.

After Whie Malreaux watched his Master Leem to die, he struck at Ventress, but she suspended him. Before leaving, she gave Whie a chance to turn to the dark side, since she could see that he was "indoctrinated" by the Jedi.

Recalled to Château Malreaux on Vjun on Dooku's orders, Ventress was given the liberty to toy with the jedi Commanders Whie and Scout when they were captured

. When Scout tried to reach her lightsaber, the Dathomirian clawed her in the head, causing her to bleed, and later held her in a Force grip when she "spoke out of term." She then ordered Whie's own Footman droid servant Fidelis, whom she thought was the one that gave her Yoda's location, to shoot himself with a Neural-Net eraser for his loyalty to the Malreaux family.

After sensing Whie's feelings for Scout, Ventress decided to enjoy herself by telling the boy to give in to his dark nature and kiss the girl he adored. When the Padawan resisted, she was about to order the droids to kill the Padawans, when Solis came to the rescue and shot the droids down. Solis then held Ventress off while the Padawans managed to run. He sliced her on the left knee with a flechette, but was destroyed as she fired the Neural-Net eraser at him.

After placing a piece of cloth from her shirt on her wounded knee, Ventress went after the Padawans. Unfortunately, she met up with both Skywalker and Kenobi, but turned tail when faced with the prospect of fighting them both at once in her condition.[19]


During the initial stages of the Battle of Rendili, Jedi Gen. Kenobi discovered his old friend, the renegade Quinlan Vos aboard the abandoned exploration vessel Titavian IV. Vos had betrayed Dooku's trust, and the Count had sent Ventress and Tol Skorr to eliminate him.

Ventress and Kenobi battled yet again, though this time Ventress felt assured of victory and rode a ferocious rancor in pursuit of her nemesis. Kenobi and Vos escaped, but Ventress put a homing beacon on their ship's hull and followed them back to Coruscant, but had a little argument with General Grievous while on the way after the defeat at Rendili. Upon her arrival, Ventress was unable to get at either Kenobi or Vos, as both were within the Jedi Temple. Instead she tracked down Skywalker, ambushing and engaging him in a duel in the upper underlevels of one of Galactic City's industrial sectors.

Ventress dueled Skywalker and preyed upon the young Jedi's fears, leaving a scar from her lightsaber down the side of Skywalker's face, though she claimed she could have taken his head. When she taunted Skywalker with threats to kill his secret wife, Skywalker again used his anger to defeat her. He entwined her body in thick electric cables, then sent her plummeting down into the murky lower levels. As on Yavin IV, Ventress barely survived her fall, but was this time too weak to continue fighting without assistance.[16]


After Adm. Trench's failed blockade of Christophsis,[20] Ventress, alongside General Loathsom led CIS forces to capture and take Christophsis. Ventress gave Loathsom intelligence on the Republic's planned to ambush his droid army[21] from her spy, Clone Sergeant Slick. After the ambush, Ventress was then informed by Slick that Jedi were onto them, warning her that jedi were coming her way to CIS headquarters.

Once Kenobi and Skywalker, Ventress greeted them, saying that her loyal servant informed her of their coming. Ventress then duel with jedi.

However, Ventress's real's mission was to delay the Jedi, so that Slick could safely destroy the weapons depot at their base. Just as CIS reinforcements, arrived Ventress and the two jedi continued their duel till the jedi escaped on a couple of STAPs. Ventress then ordered Gen. Loathsom and his tactical droid delay the jedi while she and her master continue their plan to make the Hutt Clans join the Confederacy.[22]


Ventress then took her ship, the Trident, to Tatooine to kidnap Jabba the Hutt's son. She took him from agents of Jabba's uncle, Ziro the Hutt [23] Ventress then took the infant to a old B'omarr Monastery on the planet Teth with a battalion of battle droids where, as she told Dooku and Lord Sidious, that he would be safe here according to their plan. After Skywalker and his forces had taken the monastery, Ventress then sent the spy droid 4A-7 to edit a recording of Skywalker and his apprentice to show that they were kidnapping the child. She sent the footage to Dooku so that Dooku would use the footage to convince Jabba of the Republic's treachery. Dooku then ordered Ventress to retrieve the Huttlet.

Ventress then recieved reinforcements and retook the Monastery, sealing the republic inside, knowing that they have no where to run.

After her droids defeated the clones, Ventress then came under fire from Skywalker's clone captain. After she disarmed the clone, Ventress then strangled him with force to get him to reveal Skywalker's location. After that failed, Ventress was succesful in using a mind trick to have the clone contact Skywalker. Despite republic reinforcements coming, Ventress continued her mission. She was able to find Skywalker, his apprentice, and the huttlet on landing platform. Unfortunately, Skywalker and the other escaped Ventress and made their to a ship.

Ventress was then contacted by her master, who asked her progress in retrieving. Just then Ventress was confronted Kenobi. The two dueld with each other until they both sensed that Skywalker and huttlet were gone. Despite her being disarmed and kenobi offering her a chance to surrender, Ventress then escaped on a Vulture droid. Ventress then contacted her master, who was in the presence of Jabba, that she failed in retrieving his son, but lied that Skywalker had kill Jabba's son. Dooku then told that they would discuss her failure later. [24]

Following her failed mission Teth, Ventress then went to Kashyyyk to meet with the Wookiee traitor Quaagan and take possession of Bitt Panith's secret project. Here she crossed paths—and blades—with Jedi General Bant Eerin and her apprentice.[25]

Ventress suggest Yoda prove himself by accepting a challenge; if her best troops could capture Yoda, then King Katuunko would join the Separatists, if not he would join the Republic. She assured the King that she would give Yoda a fair fight, but she and her master were not know for keeping their word.

After Yoda destroyed her droid army and Katuunko swore allegiance to the Republic, Dooku ordered Ventress to kill Katuunko. As loyal as she was, she was unsuccessful. Yoda showed up just in time to stop Ventress by force gripping both of her lightsabers in mid-swing and implored her to surrender. She, however, activated an explosive which sent boulders crashing down towards Yoda and Katuunko. While Yoda was occupied using the Force to stop the rocks from crushing them, Ventress was able to escape and fled the moon.[27]


Ventress: "All is ready, General."
Grievous: "Good. We will attack Tipoca City first!"
Ventress: "I have the exact locations of both the clone DNA room and the clone trooper barracks."

Unfortunately, the Republic intercepted their messages between each other. Ventress and her forces, in her personal ship, Trident, and other Trident assault ships waited for Grievous to start the attack in the oceans of Kamino near Tipoca City.
