While Anakin Skywalker enjoys a brief respite from the
Clone Wars (and a reunion with his secret wife Padme
Amidala), Obi-Wan Kenobi embarks on a
"personal" mission. Kenobi's first stop is a
frontier town on the swamp world of Trigalis, where he
fights a small army of bounty hunters, duels with a
crime lord who has ties to Count Dooku, and obtains
undercover help from fellow Jedi Aayla Secura. All that
just to verify a rumor about an enemy that he can't
forget. Obi-Wan is becoming obsessed, and he knows it.
But the danger of flirting with the dark side is a risk
he's willing take to save the person about whom he cares
most in the galaxy.
Consumed by the belief that the dark Jedi Asajj Ventress
still lives, Obi-Wan Kenobi has temporarily forsaken the
Clone Wars and recruited Anakin Skywalker in his
desperate hunt for Ventress. But Anakin still believes
that Obi-Wan is chasing a ghost-and he should know,
because he himself killed Ventress. And Anakin's doubts
are not assuaged when, following the trail of the rumors
of Ventress' existence, they walk into a trap set by
their old enemy, the bounty hunter Durge!
Lured into a trap aboard a drifting space wreck, Obi-Wan
and Anakin become separated, and Anakin is forced to
face the seemingly unkillable bounty hunter Durge. But
Durge has not reckoned with Skywalker's innate power, or
the young man's growing ties to the dark side. Without
Obi-Wan's moderating influence, Anakin goes off on Durge!
Occurs during the thirty-second month after the
Battle of Geonosis.
