"You may have Madame Jocasta's shape, but not her skills."
―Ahsoka Tano to Cato Parasitti, disguised as Jocasta Nu[2]

Cato Parasitti was a Clawdite female bounty hunter. During the Clone Wars, she was hired by Cad Bane to steal a valuable holocron from the archives of the Jedi Temple, which she managed by impersonating the deceased Jedi Knight Ord Enisence and later Jocasta Nu. Although the mission was a success, Parasitti was caught and imprisoned.


Infiltration of the Jedi Temple[]

"You should be able to walk into the Archives and monitor us without a problem."
"Now that I am a Jedi, I can do that."
―Cad Bane and Cato Parasitti, as the latter disguises herself as Ord Enisence[2]

Parasitti worked closely with Cad Bane.

During the Clone Wars, Parasitti was hired by fellow bounty hunter Cad Bane to assist in stealing a Holocron from the Jedi Temple for Sith Lord Darth Sidious. Using Todo 360's security chip for the temple, and schematics of the temple from the Sith Lord, Bane and Parasitti made their plans for the heist. Bane had Parasitti pose as Jedi Knight Ord Enisence, to infiltrate the Jedi Archives to help them from the inside.[2]

Parasitti defeated by Tano.

As Enisence, Parasitti was able to make her way into the Jedi archives. There, she ran into Padawan Ahsoka Tano and after exchanging some words, told the young Padawan to leave her alone. She then proceeded to the library and gained access to a computer terminal, where she assisted Bane and Todo in bypassing the security systems. However, they were soon discovered and the Jedi Temple was put on high alert. When librarian Jocasta Nu informed her of the matter, Parasitti knocked her out and took her form. It was not long however, before she was discovered and confronted by Tano. Despite her best efforts to fight her off, Tano was able to subdue her. It was then that Parasitti told her that Bane was trying to get into the Holocron Vault. After Kenobi and Skywalker failed in stopping Bane from stealing the holocron, Parasitti told them about Bane's next target; Jedi Master Bolla Ropal.[2] Parasitti eventually got out of Jedi custody.[4][5]

Disrupting negotiations[]

"Is she on the guest list?"
"Um. No."
―Ahsoka Tano and Padmé Amidala about Parasitti[6]

Parasitti's plot to disrupt the negotiations was foiled

Some time later, Parasitti attempted to disrupt negotiations with Arthurian delegates in Padmé Amidala's apartment. She disguised herself as Karté, one of Senator Amidala's handmaidens and hid a thermal detonator under a table. However, she made a mistake by setting the table with utensils, which the Arthurians never use, and was noticed by Ahsoka Tano, who was there for security. Parasitti attempted to kill Amidala by setting the detonator off, but that was soon foiled by Ahsoka and Amidala's teamwork and the explosive went of harmlessly in the air above the balcony of the apartment. Parasitti attempted to run away and was stopped with a piece of pottery, in the hands of the Senator, bashing her in the head and knocking her out.[6]

In 20 BBY, she was present in Chalmun's Spaceport Cantina on the planet Tatooine.[4][5]

Personality and traits[]

Skrilling jedi changeling

Parasitti impersonates Ord Enisence to infiltrate the Jedi Archives.

A Clawdite bounty hunter, Cato Parasitti stood at 1.79 meters tall.[1] During her work with Cad Bane, she initially believed, like Bane, that breaking into the Jedi Temple was impossible, but eventually got the opportunity to disguise herself as a Jedi, posing as Ord Enisence and Jocasta Nu.[2]


Cato Parasitti wore a suit that copied the clothing of those she shapeshifted into. She also wielded a long-barreled blaster rifle.[2]

Behind the scenes[]

"It was very important that Cato Parasitti as Jocasta Nu does not really have lightsaber skills. So we actually went through a large amount of effort to make most of the impostor's attacks defensive, and when offensive, incredibly wild and overdone."
―Dave Filoni[7]

Cato Parasitti was voiced by Gwendoline Yeo in Star Wars: The Clone Wars[2] and by Gina Torres in Star Wars Forces of Destiny.
