A powerful Dark Jedi with exceptional lightsaber combat abilities, Ventress wields dual lightsabers with curved handles that can attach together and form a double bladed weapon with a curve in the middle. Originally a Nightsister of Dathomir who was sold as a slave, she later became a Jedi Padawan, and eventually an informal Sith apprentice to Count Dooku after falling to the dark side of the Force due to her Jedi Master's death in battle. Trained as Dooku's personal assassin, Ventress was assigned various missions during the first years of the Clone Wars and came into conflict with the Jedi, primarily Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano. However, after being betrayed and left for dead by Dooku on the orders of his master, Darth Sidious, Ventress rejoined the Nightsisters and attempted to exact revenge on Dooku, before settling on becoming a bounty hunter. She later began to slowly redeem herself, helping her former Jedi enemies on several occasions, and was eventually completely redeemed the 2015 novel Star Wars: Dark Disciple, though Dooku killed her not long after.
