Villainess Overview

Now you fall. As all Jedi must.
~ Asajj Ventress to Luminara Unduli. - her most famous quote.
Jedi. Their Order is a fading light in the dark. Corrupt and arrogant. They must be punished! The Jedi shall fall!
~ Asajj Ventress declaring her intentions.

Asajj Ventress is a recurring antagonist in the Star Wars franchise, appearing as a prominent antagonist in both the Canon and Legends continuities. She is a Fallen Jedi who serves as Count Dooku's apprentice and personal assassin, and a commander of the Droid Army of the Confederacy of Independent Systems. She is also the (former) arch-enemy of Ahsoka Tano.

In the micro-series, she was voiced by Grey DeLisle, who also voiced Catwoman in the Injustice series and Azula in Avatar: The Last Airbender. In the film and TV series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, she was voiced by Nika Futterman, who also voiced Silhouette in Destroy All Humans!, Zira in The Lion Guard and Catwoman and Lashina in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.

Roles

In the canon continuity, she appeared as the secondary antagonist of the 2008 film Star Wars The Clone Wars, as major antagonist in Season 1 of the TV series of the same name; and later as an anti-heroine in Seasons 3-5, and also served as one of the two main protagonists (alongside Quinlan Vos) of the novel Dark Disciple.

She is also a major antagonist in the Legends continuity, making her original debut in the 2003 micro-series Star Wars: Clone Wars where she served as the secondary antagonist of Season 1 and the main antagonist of Season 2, and is a recurring antagonist in Star Wars: Republic. In this continuity, she is also a member of the Dark Acolytes.

Personality

Asajj Ventress had a tragic life, she started out as a caring, kind person but hardened her heart when her first master Ky Narec died. She fell into darkness giving into her emotions of resentment and rage. Ventress had a short temper, quick to be angered or infuriated during battles and lightsaber duels. As opposed to her recklessness, she was known to be cunning and swift in the long run.

Asajj was known to be vindictive and when she was betrayed by her master, she desired nothing more than vengeance against him. Ventress returned to her kin, the Nightsisters, and with their help recruited Savage Opress and treated him like a slave which ultimately caused him to turn against her and thwarted her plans. After her people were massacred, Ventress was once again alone without a family and wandered the galaxy. Overall, Ventress is cunning, mysterious, and sophisticated.

Ventress became a bounty hunter wanting to take on dangerous missions with big payouts. Her attitude towards missions involving people softened as she freed the Kage hostage Pluma Sodi. She no longer wished to kill anyone, and rescued her former nemesis Obi-Wan Kenobi from the returned Sith Lord Darth Maul, but was really interested in the bounty that was on them. She encountered former Jedi Ahsoka Tano when she was on the run from the Republic and sympathized with her when her master abandoned her as well and tried to help her clear her name.

Near the end of the war, she encountered Quinlan Vos, who asked for her help in assassinating Dooku. Vos later gave into the dark side and in the end, Ventress told him not to give into hate and experienced the light that embraced her before sacrificing herself to save Quinlan. Ventress redeemed herself by giving her life for love that she finally received.

Trivia

  • Her design originated as concept art by Dermot Power for a potential female Sith Lord during the development of Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones. However her character was abandoned in favor of Count Dooku. Power wanted her earlier designs to look almost as if she was a samurai.
    • In addition, Asajj Ventress had served as an early concept to Kit Fisto.
