The Jedi have tracked fugitive Nute Gunray to the third moon of Vassek and send Kit Fisto there to capture him. Landing his Jedi Starfighter in the fog, Fisto reunites with his former Padawan, Nahdar Vebb, who is joined by a small squad of clone troopers.
In a mysterious stronghold on the third moon of Vassek, Kit Fisto, Nahdar Vebb and several clone troopers move cautiously through the chamber's halls, uncertain of the lair's inhabitant -- that is, until they discover the body armor of General Grievous!
When General Grievous unleashes a vicious roggwart on the clone troopers who have infiltrated his lair, the entire squad is decimated before the Jedi can take down the monster. Nahdar Vebb's vengeful reaction troubles his old Master, Kit Fisto.
FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
A Nautolan Jedi Knight, Kit Fisto traded his traditional role as a negotiator and peacekeeper for a generalship leading Republic troops. As part of a Jedi rescue mission to Geonosis, he fought Separatist droids and saw the first shots fired in the Clone Wars.
Kit was a capable fighter on land, but as a water-breathing Nautolan he particularly excelled at underwater combat. He led clone troopers into battle on Mon Cala, helping keep Prince Lee-Char safe from Separatist troops hunting him.
Kit survived the Clone Wars, but met his end when the Jedi tried to take Supreme Chancellor Palpatine into custody. He wasn’t prepared for the ferocity of Palpatine’s assault on the Jedi, and a lightsaber slash ended his life.
Scheming, powerful, and evil to the core, Darth Sidious restored the Sith and destroyed the Jedi Order. Living a double life, Sidious was in fact Palpatine, a Naboo Senator and phantom menace. He slowly manipulated the political system of the Galactic Republic until he was named Supreme Chancellor -- and eventually Emperor -- ruling the galaxy through fear and tyranny.
A noble order of protectors unified by their ability to tap into the power of the Force, the Jedi Order were the guardians of peace and justice in the Galactic Republic. The age of the Jedi would end, however, due to a nefarious plot by the Sith Lord Darth Sidious.
General Grievous was a brilliant Separatist military strategist and a feared Jedi hunter, known for his ruthlessness and hacking cough. His body itself was a weapon, allowing him lightning quick strikes and devastating blows. But he was also quick to run from a fight, a tactic that worked until one final meeting with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
A harsh rocky world less than a parsec away from Tatooine, Geonosis is a ringed planet beyond the borders of the Galactic Republic. Its uninviting surface is made up of harsh, rocky desert, and the creatures that evolved on Geonosis are well equipped to survive in the brutal environment. The most advanced lifeform are the Geonosians, sentient insectoids that inhabit towering spire-hives. The Geonosians maintain large factories for the production of droids and weapons for the Separatist cause in the Clone Wars.
C-3PO is a droid programmed for etiquette and protocol, built by the heroic Jedi Anakin Skywalker, and a constant companion to astromech R2-D2. Over the years, he was involved in some of the galaxy’s most defining moments and thrilling battles -- and is fluent in over six million forms of communication.
A grim Jedi Master with an amethyst-bladed lightsaber, Mace Windu was the champion of the Jedi Order, with little tolerance for the failings of the Senate, the arguments of politicians, or the opinions of rebellious Jedi. As the Clone Wars intensified, Mace sensed the dark side of the Force at work, and knew the Jedi's enemies were plotting to destroy the Order and end its stewardship of the galaxy.
