YMMV / Star Wars: The Clone Wars Mon Calamari Arc

Go To

  • Complete Monster: Riff Tamson is a ferocious Separatist ambassador seeking to destabilize the Mon Cala government and take control of the planet. To that end, he orchestrates a civil war between the Mon Calamari and Quarren people by murdering the planet's beloved king, and radicalizing the Quarren by preying on their fears that his successor Prince Lee-Char is unfit to rule. After initiating a surprise attack on the peace-seeking Mon Calamari, Tamson oversees a series of battles resulting in numerous deaths on both sides while viciously biting many Mon Calamari to death himself. After taking control of Mon Cala and having its population enslaved, Tamson has Anakin Skywalker electrically tortured for the whereabouts of Prince Lee-Char, and when he doesn't cooperate, threatens to drown his wife Padmé. Even when the Prince is bought before him, Tamson callously leaves her to die anyway before ordering his men to rip the teenage prince to shreds in a public execution. Even Tamson's Quarren allies aren't safe from his brutality and treachery, as he plans on subjugating them as well once he's seized control of the throne.
