Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 4, Episode 13 //
Escape from Kadavo 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.
The Queen of Zygerria, Miraj Scintel longs for a return to glory for her people. Ages ago, the Zygerrian Slave Empire stretched across many sectors, supplying luckless labor to unscrupulous masters in the galaxy. Scintel takes advantage of a Republic distracted by war to grow the slave trade, allied by the Separatist Alliance. When Anakin Skywalker goes undercover to infiltrate Scintel's court, and discover the whereabouts of a vanished colony of Togruta artisans, the wily Queen takes interest in him. She sees in Anakin a prize to own and overpower, and uses her seductive charms to her full advantage.
Atai Molec is the ruthless prime minister of Zygerria who will do whatever it takes to bring his homeworld back to its former majesty. He also serves as Captain of the Guard, leading the royal sentinels sworn to protect the Queen and enforce Zygerrian dominance over their slaves. Despite his rank, Molec often took a hands-on approach. He has been known to personally prowl the markets on foot, vigiliant for any inklings of rebellion, and he delights in breaking slaves himself, brandishing the Zygerrian electro-whip with unrivaled cruelty.
A Zygerrian slavemaster who led the slaving operation on Kadavo, Agruss delighted in his superiority over his pathetic charges. Agruss flaunted his power freely, punishing and executing slaves at a whim to ensure no one every questioned his authority. The overweight Zygerrian hovered aloft on a repulsorlift chair, exuding an air of decadence. Agruss particularly delighted in tormenting Obi-Wan Kenobi, the first ever Jedi to be interred at his grueling facility.
