The Hunt for the Hunter (12)
Basic info
First appearance: Attack of the Clones
Relations: Coruscant
Summary
Following the first failed attempt on Amidala's life, Wesell was sent by Fett to terminate the life of Amidala a second time. Fett, saying that a more subtle attempt would be more desirable, gave Wesell two kouhuns, a type of venomous arthropod capable of easily killing adult Humans. He then warned her that they could not afford to make any mistakes this time, as Fett's client was getting impatient. Wesell placed the kouhuns in her ASN-121 courier droid and sent it to place the kouhuns in Amidala's bedroom. Although the Kouhuns initially made enough noise to put R2-D2 out of standby mode, they quickly blended in with the bed frame and eluded the astromech droid's scanning the perimeter until it shut itself off. Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, from outside the bedroom while in a heated discussion, sensed the danger, however, and Skywalker burst into the room and killed the kouhuns. Kenobi then grabbed onto the ASN-121. Skywalker, instead of jumping out the window with his master, attempted to find another means to follow him. Scaling various rooftops, and disabling several security droids in the vicinity, eventually went to a Senator parking garage several meters down from Amidala's apartment to access an airspeeder, ultimately opting for an XJ-6 airspeeder since it was the only one that had a convertible design. Meanwhile, Wesell, seeing this, was forced to shoot her own droid down, knowing full well that if she tried to shoot Kenobi directly, the autopsy would find the bullet in his body and thus trace it back to her, and that the Jedi Knight's fall would seem less suspicious. However, Anakin, via an airspeeder that he had "borrowed" from a senator, rescued Kenobi at the last minute. The two Jedi then pursued Wesell by airspeeder through the Coruscant skylanes to the CoCo District. During the pursuit, Wesell attempted to use various tricks to her advantage in an attempt at deterring her pursuers, including forcing them to pass through smokestacks bellowing smoke, as well as shooting power pylons to generate electricity potent enough to induce heart attacks for non-Force users. Eventually, after the craft stalled, Anakin hovered some distance above Zam Wesell's craft, let his body drop the intervening distance through the air, then latched a firm hand-grip to its rear canopy handle. He ultimately was forced to let go when she shot at him, although not before getting a good look at her, wherein he deduced that Zam was not only a female, but also a changeling (he'd briefly glimpsed Wesell's true form when she looked up). Wesell was likewise forced to crash her vehicle shortly afterward, with Skywalker then supplying pursuit, with his also being forced to slow down somewhat due to the criminal element constantly harassing him, though he ultimately lost her trail by the time he reached the Outlander Club. Skywalker reported his earlier discovery about Wesell to Kenobi when they had reconvened. After the Jedi duo caught up with the bounty hunter at last and had literally disarmed her, Fett was forced to fatally shoot Wesell with a toxic saberdart just as she was about to reveal her employer's identity to the Jedi.
