ASAJJ VENTRESS (BOUNTY HUNTER)

ASAJJ VENTRESS (BOUNTY HUNTER)

Category: Hunters
Detachment: Sins of Korriban

CONTEXT: STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS

After the eradication of the Nightsisters, Asajj found herself wandering the Outer Rim Territories where she fell into the position of Bounty Hunter. After a short stint as part of the Bounty Hunter Syndicate lead by the adolescent Boba Fett, she separated and continued to hunt on her own. During an attempt to collect a Senate bounty on Ahsoka Tano, she allied with the former padawan in an attempt to clear Ahsoka’s name. Her helmet and saber hilts were stolen after a brawl with the renegade Jedi, Barriss Offee, who intended to frame Asajj in addition to Ahsoka for the bombings of the Jedi Temple. Barriss used the saber hilts and helmet to falsely lead Ahsoka into believing Asajj had betrayed her until Anakin was able to capture Barriss and clear their names.
