Anakin and Ahsoka travel to the planet Devaron in pursuit of Cad Bane, who has stolen a Jedi holocron. Bane has captured Jedi Master Bolla Ropal, keeper of the Kyber crystal, which will reveal data on every known Force-sensitive child in the galaxy when combined with the holocron. Failing to force Ropal to open the holocron, Bane needs another Jedi. Capturing Ahsoka, the bounty hunter forces Anakin to open the holocron to save his Padawan. The holocron's secrets revealed, Bane attempts an escape, but appears to be killed by a clone. Anakin, however, still senses Bane's presence in the Force...
The Jedi Council suspects that Senator Rush Clovis, an InterGalactic Banking Clan delegate and former colleague of Padmé Amidala, may be working for the Separatists. Against Anakin's wishes, the Council asks Padmé if she would accompany Rush to Cato Neimoidia to uncover any clues regarding the Senator's true allegiances. Padmé agrees, feeling that her past relationship with the Senator -- which for a time had been romantic until she ended it -- might give her an advantage in the investigation. Fending off Anakin's jealousy, as well as an attempt on her life by Neimoidian Lott Dod, Padmé successfully reveals Clovis to be conspiring with the Separatists to build a military droid factory on Geonosis.
