"The dark side is strong in me, for I am Sith! " ― Asajj Ventress' first and most famous line

Asajj Ventress is an antagonist in the Star Wars franchise, first appearing in the animated microseries Star Wars: Clone Wars. She is a "Dark Jedi", a warrior powerful in the Force who sides with the Sith, but is not a full-fledged member of the Order. A henchwoman to Count Dooku, she is a recurring nemesis of protagonists Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi.

In Star Wars: Clone Wars, she is voiced by Grey DeLisle. In the later animated film and series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, she is voiced by Nika Futterman.

  4. She has a sympathetic, even tragic, backstory
  5. She fears no one, even standing up to the monstrous General Grievous
  6. She eventually turns against Dooku
  7. She has an ill-fated romance with disgraced Jedi Quinlan Vos that ends with her sacrificing her life to save his
