Asajj Ventress is easily one of the most popular female characters in the Star Wars franchise. She has a long history in the comics and cartoons, which detail her early life on Dathomir, her association with the Nightsisters, and her extended story arc with her lover, Jedi Master Quinlan Vos. Ventress has been featured throughout the Star Wars canon (and some Legends material), including numerous appearances in The Clone Wars and one unfinished arc of the series.
That unfinished story eventually became the Dark Disciple novel, which has its own army of fans who love the character. Throughout her time in the Star Wars galaxy, Asajj Ventress has been a Jedi, she's fought alongside her partner Quinlan Vos, and she was once Count Dooku's apprentice (and would-be assassin). Despite being one of the most beloved characters in the franchise, there's a lot about Asajj Ventress that most fans (probably) don't know about one of the franchise's greatest female villains.
That's what this list is all about, as it features some of the most important facts most people don't know about the deadly Sith assassin. Her impact, purpose, place in the grand scope of galactic affairs, and everything else can be found below.
