Count Dooku was a menacing Sith Lord and central figure in the Clone Wars. Once a Jedi -- trained by Yoda -- he became disillusioned with the Jedi Order and thirsted for greater power. Dooku voluntarily left the light side behind and became Darth Sidious’ dark side disciple, taking the secret name Darth Tyranus and leading the Separatist army.
Rako Hardeen had aspirations for greatness -- he wanted to stand shoulder-to-shoulder among the legendary bounty hunters of his era, hired guns like Cad Bane, Embo and Twazzi. A crack shot, he was reputed to be the best marksman from Concord Dawn, but he never gained the notoriety he desired. That is, until the day he killed Obi-Wan Kenobi... Hardeen was hired by a mysterious client to target Kenobi. He succeeded, just barely outrunning Kenobi's vengeful former apprentice, Anakin Skywalker. Hiding out in the seamy depths of Coruscant, Rako was shocked to discover his client was the Jedi Council. it was part of a secret plot to replace Hardeen with a Jedi agent to infiltrate the criminal underworld.
Conniving even for Phindian standards, Moralo Eval earned a loathsome reputation as a heartless murderer at a young age. As a boy, he killed his mother, telling authorities he did it because he was "bored." A lifetime spent as a criminal and a fugitive gave Eval a sharp survival instinct, and he had impressive technical and engineering skills. Life on the run may have also left him deranged; Moralo's odd mannerisms included talking about himself in the third person. During the Clone Wars, reports surfaced that Moralo was working with Count Dooku, possibly plotting to kidnap Chancellor Palpatine.
Together with his brother Bulduga, Onca was part of a legendary bounty hunting team. While Bulduga fancied himself a fast-drawing gunslinger, Onca was slower, unable to overcome the bulk of his Ithorian build to snap off shots as quickly as his brother could. Instead, Onca favored firepower over flash or finesse. He often carried more than one blaster rifle at a time, including a sawed-off one.
Most beings in the galaxy assume that Ithorians are peaceful keepers of gardens and contemplative philosophy. The ones who have stared down the barrels of the bounty hunting brothers Bulduga and Onca beg to differ -- if not busy begging for their lives. While Onca favored heavier rifles, Bulduga preferred the fast-draw blaster. Some who noticed Bulduga's low slung holster, red-lensed goggles and wide-brimmed hat wondered if perhaps Bulduga was a copy-cat, looking to imitate another well known gunslinger -- but not within earshot of the deadly Ithorian.
A fearsome bounty hunter of few words, Embo was quick to disable his target, be it by a single trained shot from his bowcaster or a decisive blow from his pan-shaped hat, which could be hurled at an adversary with deadly accuracy. The hat also doubled as a shield when the Kyuzo directly charged his target head-first. Embo appeared loyal to Sugi and her band of bounty hunters, a group which possesses a rare sense of honor among outlaws.
