Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 2, Episode 17 //
Bounty Hunters Episode Guide
Discovered as a slave on Tatooine by Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker had the potential to become one of the most powerful Jedi ever, and was believed by some to be the prophesied Chosen One who would bring balance to the Force. A hero of the Clone Wars, Anakin was caring and compassionate, but also had a fear of loss that would prove to be his downfall.
A legendary Jedi Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi was a noble man and gifted in the ways of the Force. He trained Anakin Skywalker, served as a general in the Republic Army during the Clone Wars, and guided Luke Skywalker as a mentor.
Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was the Padawan learner to Anakin Skywalker and a hero of the Clone Wars. Alongside Anakin, she grew from headstrong student into a mature leader. But her destiny laid along a different path than the Jedi.
The leader of a group of noble bounty hunters, this female Zabrak asks no quarter and gives no quarter. Tough and fair minded, she took jobs she believed in, contrary to what others may think. Among the more heroic tasks she has undertaken were protecting a defenseless farming village from pirates on Felucia, and saving stranded younglings from Trandoshan hunting grounds.
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.
A tough, pragmatic Weequay, Hondo Ohnaka led a notorious Outer Rim pirate gang from his headquarters on Florrum. A former colleague of Jango Fett and a former lover of Aurra Sing, Ohnaka won fame during the Clone Wars when he kidnapped Count Dooku, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Anakin Skywalker and tried to ransom all three for a big payout. Since that incident, he maintained a peculiar relationship with the Republic -- respecting the Jedi Knights, but not being above robbing them blind or betraying them. During the age of the Empire, Ohnaka found himself running a solo operation, but he continued scheming and dealing. He was, after all, a pirate through-and-through.
