Name: Asajj Ventress

Rank: Dark Acolyte

Tier: Middle 1

Background: Asajj Ventress was a Dathomirian female who was, at various points throughout her life, a slave, a Jedi Padawan, an assassin of the Sith, a Nightsister and a bounty hunter. In the final decades of the Galactic Republic's reign, Ventress was born into a clan of Force-sensitive Nightsister witches led by Mother Talzin on the planet Dathomir. Early in her life, her coven was forced to surrender Ventress to the criminal Hal'Sted, who spirited Ventress away from her sisters to the war-torn world of Rattatak where she was raised as a slave in his service. She was orphaned when her master was killed by Weequay pirates, but was later discovered by the Jedi Knight Ky Narec, who was stranded on Rattatak and waging a battle against the pirate marauders.

Narec raised Ventress and taught her to use the Force in the ways of the Jedi Order, and together they protected the populace of Rattatak and fought back against the predatory attacks of pirates and warlords. After a decade of helping the local population, Ventress was orphaned once more when Narec was killed by pirates seeking to end the Jedi's crusade on their world. Enraged by the loss and bereft of guidance, Ventress embraced the dark side of the Force, deposing the local warlords and ruling in their stead. She was ultimately captured while attempting to assassinate the warlord Osika Kirske, who forced her to fight as a gladiator in his arena. She was eventually discovered by the Sith Lord Count Dooku and fell under his guidance and tutelage as a Dark Acolyte and aspiring apprentice.

When the pan-galactic Clone Wars erupted between the Galactic Republic and Dooku's Confederacy of Independent Systems, Ventress became a commander in her Master's Separatist droid military and an assassin in the employ of the Sith. 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 engaged Anakin Skywalker in a duel in the Yavin System, where Ventress was injured and left stranded on the planet. She blamed Obi-Wan Kenobi for her failures to become a Sith Apprentice, 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. Although she was highly talented and saw success in the kidnapping of Rotta the Hutt, the rescue of Nute Gunray, and the infiltration of the Republic fortress world of Kamino, Ventress was repeatedly forced to compete for her Master's favor against Confederate military leader General Grievous.

Weaknesses: Ventress is extremely cocky in her own abilities, to the point that bar obvious survival, she is willing to engage the likes of anyone; believing in her own power. This can be exploited by a mindful combatant, who can bait her into specific manoeuvres and scenarios if she believes she has the upper hand. Ventress, while an extremely skilled Makashi user, typically uses the form with two-blades. And though she has mastered such techniques, Makashi and Jar’Kai both suffer against physical strength; and thus Ventress suffers greatly against those who apply a large amount of physical force.
