Summary
Asajj Ventress was a female Dathomirian Dark Jedi and a valuable Dark Acolyte to Count Dooku. Originally a Nightsister from Dathomir, Ventress was taken as a slave to Rattatak and trained as a Jedi Padawan by Jedi Knight Ky Narec. However, after Narec was slain, Ventress gave into her anger and began walking the path of the dark side - taking up the lightsaber of her dead master, she trained herself in the Jar'Kai style of lightsaber combat, before slaying all the warlords on Rattatak and installing herself as its ruler. At the time of the Clone Wars, Ventress served as one of Count Dooku's loyal acolytes and served in the rank of commander in the Confederacy of Independent Systems. She had yearned to learn the ways of the Sith from Dooku and believed if she had proved herself worthy, she would become his apprentice. She even blamed Obi-Wan Kenobi for her failure and made it an obsession to hunt and kill him. Soon after her first encounter on the moon Ohma-D'un, she hunted him on missions on Christophsis, Teth, and Ord Cestus, but never gained the chance to defeat him. In addition, during her struggles with Kenobi, she was also confronted with Kenobi's apprentice Anakin Skywalker, who also defeated her several times, being seriously injured in a duel on Yavin IV. When she especially wanted to meet Skywalker by threatening his lover Padme Amidala, he was almost killed in another duel on Coruscant and initially disappeared from the scene. While Ventress' power continued to grow, the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Sidious ordered his Dooku to have Ventress terminated due to his great fear of her power. After an unsuccessful attempt to do so, Ventress sought revenge against Dooku for betraying her and received help from the Nightsisters, led by Talzin, to assassinate him. However, further attempts to kill Dooku failed and Ventress was forced to retreat back to her homeworld to recover and join the Nightsisters. When Count Dooku and General Grievous launched an attack on the planet and killed almost every member of the clan, Ventress lived in exile and altered her life in becoming a bounty hunter.
