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.
Though the deeper levels of Coruscant may be far from the prying eyes of clone troopers and police droids, some semblance of order was maintained courtesy of the underworld police. Completely swathed in the protection and anonymity of their leather and metal uniforms, with mechanical eyes poking through their fully wrapped heads, it's unclear if they were droids, humanoids, or something in between.
On Coruscant, local police divisions would not be able to patrol the vast reaches of the planet-wide city without the use of droids. These automatons are afforded programming that allow them to harm sentient beings when very specific operational parameters have been met - namely, the breaking of laws and the endangerment of citizens. These droids are beyond corruption and fatigue, though their rigid procedural thinking can be outsmarted. Automated security is particularly popular in deep space facilities, where organic crews are kept small to reduce the amount of life support supplies required.
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.
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.
