Get to know the Bounty Hunters of Clone Wars season 2.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 3 is already underway, and Clone Wars season 2 is now heading to DVD/Blu-ray. The second season focused on the Bounty Hunters of the Star Wars universe; some of them were familiar to fans (Bossk & Aurra Sing), while others were all new for the series. So for those of you that have not checked out season 2 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars yet, we have a look at the Bounty Hunters.
Cad Bane is a bad dude. Bane is a bounty hunter that hails from the planet Duro; known for his ruthlessness and his twin blasters. Bane attracted the attention of both the Jedi and the Sith when he freed gangster Ziro the Hutt from a prison on Coruscant. From then on Bane became employed by the Sith as they worked to destroy the Republic.
Fans of the original trilogy should recognize Bossk from the Bounty Hunter scene in The Empire Strikes Back. Bossk is not only a skilled tracker and hunter, he is also the son of Cradossk, former head of the Bounty Hunters Guild. In season 2 of The Clone Wars, Bossk teams up with fellow bounty hunters Aurra Sing and even his future rival, Boba Fett. Eventually, Bossk would find himself in a Republic prison on Coruscant
Aurra Sing is the rare exception of a character from the expanded Star Wars universe making an appearance in one of the films. If you look hard enough you can find the bounty hunter in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, in the podrace scene. Sing was not always a bounty hunter; as a child she was a Jedi hopeful who eventually turned her back on the Jedi Order, to later become one of the most skilled Jedi hunters in the galaxy.
Sugi is a female bounty hunter from the Zabrak species, as was Jedi Master Eeth Koth and the Sith apprentence, Darth Maul. A known associate of the bounty hunters, Rumi Paramita, Embo, and Seripas, Sugi once had a a twenty-five thousand credit bounty for crimes against the Republic. Despite her legal status, she once worked with several Jedi Knights to defend a farming community from pirates.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Season 2 will be available on DVD/Blu-ray on October 26
