- "Time to see who's smart enough to join the hunt. Open fire!"
Garnac was the ruthless leader of a group of Trandoshans during the Clone Wars who kidnapped sentient beings from all over the galaxy, including Jedi Padawans, and brought them to the moon Wasskah, where they hunted them down for sport.
- "The sun has risen. Let the hunt begin."
- ―Garnac to his fellow Trandoshan hunters.
Around 21 BBY, Garnac and his group of fellow hunters kidnapped the Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and brought her to Wasskah to be hunted down and there, she met a group of younglings whom she joined. Garnac had a son, Dar, whom had never killed a Jedi before and a chance would come when Dar was on a hunting trip with the rest of the Trandoshan hunters after his initiation, but things didn't go as planned and a confrontation with the four young Jedi got Dar killed, leaving Garnac screaming for revenge and shooting Kalifa in a fit of anger. Later, Ahsoka and her companions teamed up with the Wookiee Chewbacca who had been on the Trandoshan dropship, a HCT-2001 Dragonboat-class Reugeot 905 freighter, as the latest prisoner to be hunted down, the three young Jedi and their new friend managed to hijack a Trandoshan hunting speeder after capturing the Trandoshan Smug, whom they mind tricked into calling for his friend Krix, and flew up to the base of the Trandoshans, an Ubrikkian floating fortress. In the following skirmish, the remaining Trandoshans got killed as Wookiee reinforcements led by general Tarfful arrived in bounty hunter Sugi's ship, the Halo. While the fight raged on and the Wookiees started to get the upper hand, Garnac ran inside the trophy room, followed by Ahsoka, and the two shared a last confrontation where he saw a last chance to avenge his son by killing her. After a violent struggle between the two, in which he used a hatchet and a knife to try and kill Ahsoka, she eventually won and declared Garnac beaten. However, the vengeful Trandoshan refused defeat and reached for his gun even though Ahsoka warned him not to. Just as Garnac was about to shoot, Ahsoka accidentally Force-pushed him too hard, sending him flying through the doors, over the railing and down to the lower deck to his death.
Garnac was a bloodthirsty and ruthless individual who loved his occupation as a hunter and he liked collecting trophies such as mounted animal heads and skins from different species he had killed. The only one he really seemed to care for was his son Dar and he also seemed to have had a double standard issue as he thought it was okay for him and his group of hunters to hunt down and kill members of other species without mercy, but it was completely wrong for their targets to attack and kill them, even in a fair fight.
Skills and abilitiesEdit
Garnac was an experienced hunter and a skilled fighter who was seen using a variety of weapons, including a trandoshan blaster, a sniper rifle, a hatchet, and a knife. He was good at using blasters and was also skilled in hand-to-hand combat, as shown in his fight with Ahsoka Tano.
His skills as a hunter were evident by the many trophies found adorning the walls of his guild including Rancors, Wampas, Wookies, Dragonsnakes along with numerous other lethal beasts.
