Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Season 2, Episode 11 //
A first look at an upcoming episode of The Clone Wars. See new episodes on television every Friday on the Cartoon Network, and online each following Monday on StarWars.com.
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 female Terelian Jango Jumper has impressive acrobatics skills which came in handy as a thief in the Coruscant underworld. Cassie Cryar's main objective was to steal highly-sought after objects. By helping her partner Ione Marcy murder her boyfriend, the Trandoshan assassin Nack Movers, Cassie obtained one of the most valuable items in the galaxy -- a Jedi's lightsaber. Her desire to keep the lightsaber made her overconfident. She believed she could wield the same power as a Jedi.
Ione's large eyes and small voice help her maintain her illusion of being an innocent witness to the crimes found in the deeper levels of Coruscant. Few would suspect her as a thief or accomplice to murder. Ione was a partner in crime to the nimble Cassie Cryar. When the two hoods managed to get a hold of a stolen Jedi lightsaber, they desperately tried to avoid the law.
A city-covered planet, Coruscant is the vibrant heart and capital of the galaxy, featuring a diverse mix of citizens and culture. It features towering skyscrapers, streams of speeder-filled air traffic, and inner levels that stretch far below the world’s surface. Coruscant was the seat of government for the Galactic Republic and the Empire that followed, and was the site of numerous historic events during the Clone Wars. It also housed the Jedi Temple and Archives, which hosted Jedi training and learning for over a thousand generations -- traditions that ended when the planet bore witness to Order 66.
The lightsaber is the weapon of a Jedi, an elegant weapon of a more civilized age. It can be used to cut through blast doors or enemies alike. Using the Force, a Jedi can predict and deflect incoming blaster bolts, and reflect them.
The wise old Jedi Master Tera Sinube was an expert on the Coruscant underworld, having studied the criminal activities of the lower levels of the city world for decades. A methodical investigator, Sinube was also a keen observer of people. Bolstered by his connection to the Force, Sinube's deductive skills could piece together evidence and solve a crime faster than seasoned detectives in Coruscant law enforcement. Though his body may have slowed in his advanced years, his mind remained quick and agile.
