->''Who we are never changes, who we think we are does.''

After the destruction of the Nightsisters clan, Asajj Ventress travels around the Galaxy, until she eventually arrives to Tatooine. After killing a BountyHunter, she agrees to fill in his place in the group he belonged to, in order to finish a job.


* AstonishinglyAppropriateAppearance: "Kage" means "shadow" in Japanese. The Kage warriors have dark skin, and they're {{ninja}}s.
* BigCreepyCrawlies: The [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Milodon milodons]] used as mounts by the Kages.
* BeneathTheEarth: Due to Quarzite's highly pressurized atmosphere, it's uninhabitable on the surface, so the Belugans and Kages dwell underground.
* BreatherEpisode: While action packed, with some genuinely dark themes touched upon, this episode is ''much'' LighterAndSofter than either the previous one, or the following two.
* BureaucraticallyArrangedMarriage: Pluma Sodi was kidnapped from her family and people in order to be wed to Otua Blank, the dictator of the Belugans.
* CharacterDevelopment: Ventress goes through quite a big one, when she decides to let the Sodi siblings go.
* CivilWar: Between the Belugans and the Kages.
* CoolVsAwesome: [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot Alien bounty hunters]] vs {{Ninja}}s!
%%* DamselInDistress: Pluma Sodi.
* DrowningMySorrows: Arriving on Tatooine, Ventress goes straight to a bar, where she orders a short drink, gulps in down at once, and immediately orders another.
%%* FatBastard: Otua Blank.
* JoinOrDie: A variation: Bossk and Latts Razzi basically tell Ventress if she doesn't take Oked's place on the job, they'll hand her over to the authorities for killing him. Needing the money, Ventress doesn't have any problem going along with it.
* NotSoDifferent: Ventress, after hearing Pluma Sodi's story, comes to realise that the girl's predicament is very similar to hers.
* OhCrap: The Kage warriors when Ventress pulls out her lightsabers and reduces their knives to scrap metal.
* SpaceElevator: Quarzite has one, as due to its high-pressure atmosphere, it's impossible to land on it with spacecrafts. [[FridgeLogic But then how did they build the elevator in the first place?]]
* StandAloneEpisode: The episode has little plot relevance, and focuses on Ventress' development as a character.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: Zigzagged. While Ventress has nothing but contempt for Boba Fett on account of his youth, she works quite well with the other bounty hunters.
* TemptingFate: This exchange:
-->'''Krismo Sodi:''' I've come for what's mine.\\
'''Major Rigosso:''' Over my dead body... ''[Krismo impales him in the chest with a thrown dagger]''
* TooDumbToLive: Oked, the bounty hunter who tries to hit on Ventress and won't take the hint she's not interested. Ventress has to drive the point home with a lightsaber.
* TrainJob: The Kage warriors try one in order to free Pluma from her captors.
