Star Wars Rebels - Season 2, Episode 8 //
Blood Sisters Episode Guide
Ketsu Onyo was an old friend of the rebel Sabine, with both attending and escaping the Imperial Academy together. But they eventually took different paths. Ketsu became a bounty hunter, contracting with the Black Sun syndicate. During one job to recover a droid courier, she once again encountered Sabine, who looked to bring the droid to the rebellion. Their meeting was tense, but they put their differences aside to survive an attack from the Empire. In the end, Ketsu rejected an offer to join the rebellion -- for the time being.
The starship of bounty hunter Ketsu Onyo, the Shadow Caster was fast, powerful, and featured some surprises. In addition to laser cannons, the craft was equipped with a tractor beam, which Ketsu used to capture the rebel droid Chopper. The Shadow Caster served its owner well, and was key in evading the Empire when Ketsu and her old friend Sabine finally joined forces.
On the surface, a harmless GNK power droid. Underneath, a courier holding secrets vital to the rebellion. EG-86, custodian of important information and data, was sent to rendezvous with Sabine and Ezra of the Ghost crew. While the Mandalorian and Padawan didn’t expect a GNK droid, neither would the Empire, making EG-86 a wise choice.
The GX1 short hauler was a shuttle, ferrying commuters from one location to another. Piloted by an RX-series droid, It was commandeered by Sabine and Ezra of the Ghost crew while they looked to escape both Imperials and a bounty hunter. Eventually, with the Empire closing in, they abandoned ship and set the GX1 to explode, damaging an Imperial Light Cruiser’s reactor. The droid pilot, newly reactivated, was a casualty of the battle.
A versatile weapon, Ketsu’s staff was deceptively deadly. It could act as both a blaster and close-combat tool. Ketsu carried her staff on her back, where she could quickly draw it and strike. While on mission to recover the droid EG-86, the bounty hunter used the weapon to take down a squad of stormtroopers and vault onto a starship.
