Early Life

Asajj Ventress was born on the planet Dathomir as a member of the Nightsisters, a group of female Zabraks who manipulated the dark side of the Force. As a child, Asajj's mother was forced to give her daughter up in slavery. As a child, Asajj's master was killed by weequay pirates. She was discovered by Jedi Master Ky Narec, who saw her use the Force on a Weequay pirate. Raised by her Master, Ky and Asajj grew close. However, when Ky was killed, Ventress embraced the dark side and disposed of the warlords who had taken over Rattatak. Eventually, she was found by Dooku, who saw her potential in the Force and offered her to become his apprentice, which she accepted. Dooku hoped that, once he had trained Ventress, he would kill his master to uphold the Rule of Two.
