"Greetings, Jedi. It would seem once again one of your Order has lost his way. And even better, a leading member of your Jedi Council. Listen to me, Jedi. I do not care about your politics. I do not care about your Republic. I only live to see you die!"
―Grievous' message to the Jedi Council — (audio) Listen (file info)[5]

During the Clone Wars, Jedi Master Eeth Koth was captured by General Grievous and the Droid Army of the Confederacy of Independent Systems in the Saleucami system.[7] Koth's capture came during a battle deep in the Outer Rim Territories, one in which Grievous' fleet attacked Koth's Star Destroyer. The Separatists boarded the Jedi cruiser and made their way to the bridge, where Grievous dueled and ultimately captured the Jedi Master. Grievous later proclaimed, in a transmission to the Jedi Council, that he had captured Koth, prompting the Jedi Order to launch a rescue mission over Saleucami.[5]

The capture[]

"Your reputation precedes you, General—the reputation of a coward and a murderer."
"Murderer? Is it murder to rid the galaxy of you Jedi filth?"
―Eeth Koth and General Grievous — (audio) Listen (file info)[5]

In 21 BBY,[6] General Grievous began to target members of the Jedi Council.[9] Using a fleet of three Munificent-class star frigates and his own Recusant-class command ship, the General attacked Jedi General Eeth Koth's flagship, the Steadfast. Grievous' command ship then moved alongside the Steadfast and crippled it.[5]

Koth, Captain Lock, and their troopers prepared for Grievous' and his forces boarding. Super battle droids attacked Lock and his troopers. As the droids were overwhelming their position, Koth order Lock and his remaining troopers to evacuate the Steadfast. Despite droid commandos boarding the ship, Lock and his remaining troopers left Koth to deal with Grievous on his own. Grievous and his commando droids cut through the bridge's blast doors.[5]

Koth and his remaining troopers fought the commando droids. Despite losing all his remaining troopers, Koth was able to finish off the battle droids. However, he was shot in the arm by one. Grievous then brought his IG-100 MagnaGuards to help subdue Koth. Koth was able to hold his own against Grievous, but the MagnaGuards were able to use to their electrostaffs to allow Grievous to disarm Koth. Grievous choked Koth into captivity aboard his command ship.[5]


"It's time somebody finally put an end to that monster."
―Anakin Skywalker, on Grievous — (audio) Listen (file info)[5]

Grievous later sent a message to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, displaying his capture of Koth. Grievous' message was seen by members of the jedi council, as well several other jedi and younglings who watched in horror as Grievous and his magnaguards torutred Koth. Despite his torture, Koth was able to use his hands to send a coded message. Commander Wollfe was able to discover the message. The message told them that Koth was still in the Saleucami system at Sector J-19, coordinates zero-eight, zero-five, two-nine.[5]

  2. 2.0 2.1 AltayaCite.svg "The Beginning of the Clone Wars" – Star Wars Encyclopedia
  3. Star Wars: Rogue One: The Ultimate Visual Guide states that the Onderonian Civil War began 22 years before the Rogue One mission. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Rogue One mission to 0 BBY. Therefore, the Onderonian Civil War began in 22 BBY, while its end, depicted in "Tipping Points," must occur in 20 BBY; Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the events of "Water War" to 20 BBY, while Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Character Encyclopedia - Join the Battle! dates the events of "The Gathering" to be 20 years before the events of Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope, which corresponds to 20 BBY according to Star Wars: Galactic Atlas. As StarWars.com Star Wars: The Clone Wars Chronological Episode Order on StarWars.com (backup link) establishes that the events of "Tipping Points," and therefore the end of the Onderonian Civil War, occurred between the events of "Water War" and "The Gathering," the war must have ended in 20 BBY. Therefore, the Capture of Eeth Koth occurs concurrently to the civil war.
  4. "Brain Invaders" establishes that the second occupation of Geonosis began after the Second Battle of Geonosis, while Catalyst: A Rogue One Novel shows that it continued throughout the rest of the Clone Wars. As AltayaCite.svg "The Beginning of the Clone Wars" – Star Wars Encyclopedia establishes that the Capture of Eeth Koth occurred after the Second Battle of Geonosis, but still during the Clone Wars, the capture must have been concurrent to the second occupation.
