A disgustingly indulgent Belugan alien, Lord Otua Blank ruled the small planet of Quarzite with an iron fist. He marshaled an elite military force that protected his domain, but that weren't skilled enough to deal with the most elite of his enemies, the Kage warriors. Blank hired Boba Fett's crew of bounty hunters to protect a precious cargo delivery to his subterranean lair from the Kage marauders that prowled the underground.
A military officer loyal to Otua Blank of Quarzite, Major Rigosso was tasked with overseeing the safe delivery of a precious cargo to his lordship during the Clone Wars. Due to the inhospitable atmospheric pressure on the surface of Quarzite, the Belugan and Kage people lived in subterranean passages beneath the planet's crust. Transit and transportation for Blank's people was provided by a series of subtram lines, which were frequently raided by Kage Warriors. To best protect Blank's delivery, Rigosso hired a team of elite bounty hunters to accompany him and the cargo.
An assassin trained in the ways of the dark side by Count Dooku, Asajj Ventress yearned to be considered a true Sith, but such status wasn't allowed under the Sith's Rule of Two. Ventress fought with twin red-bladed lightsabers, and clashed with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker many times. But her destiny would not lie with the Sith. After Dooku rejected her as his apprentice and tried to kill her, Ventress returned to her roots as a Nightsister, made a living as a bounty hunter, and – in the strangest twist of all – rediscovered the way of the light that she’d rejected long ago as a Jedi Padawan.
With his customized Mandalorian armor, deadly weaponry, and silent demeanor, Boba Fett was one of the most feared bounty hunters in the galaxy. A genetic clone of his “father,” bounty hunter Jango Fett, Boba learned combat and martial skills from a young age. Over the course of his career, which included contracts for the Empire and the criminal underworld, he became a legend.
The crystalline caverns of Quarzite were home to an ongoing conflict between the powerful Belugans and the outnumbered Kage. The Belugans had wealth and technology on their side, but the Kage were a spirited and dedicated people. Their most powerful combatants pushed themselves to the utmost physical excellence, and Kage Warriors were tireless, elite fighters, nimble and stealthy, and effective with the electro sword or unarmed. Riding atop multi-legged milodons, they could keep pace with the subtram transports that supplied Blank's strongholds, and launch raids that caught the Belugan security forces off-guard.
