In [[22 BBY]], during a [[Mission to Ansion|diplomatic mission]] to the [[planet]] [[Ansion]] undertaken by several members of the [[Jedi Order]], a '''skirmish''' occurred in a [[Qulun camp|camp]] belonging to the nomadic [[Qulun]] tribe. Four Jedi&mdash;[[Jedi Master|Master]] [[Luminara Unduli]], [[Jedi Knight]] [[Obi-Wan Kenobi]] and their [[Padawan]]s [[Barriss Offee]] and [[Anakin Skywalker]]&mdash;were dispatched to Ansion to ensure it remained in the [[Galactic Republic|Republic]]. However, they were drugged by the Qulun tribe and taken captive alongside the clanless Ansionians [[Kyakhta]] and [[Bulgan]] in an attempt to stop them from completing their mission. This was due to a reward promised by [[Soergg Vosadii Bezhin|Soergg the Hutt]] to those who delayed the offworlders' return to [[Cuipernam]], the [[capital]] city of Ansion, until after the vote for secession had taken place. However, the [[Prisoner|captives]] were freed by [[Tooqui]], a male [[Gwurran]] who had not been with the group at the time they were drugged and had managed to avoid capture, and they promptly escaped the camp. Shortly after their escape, [[Baiuntu]], chief trader for the clan, was [[Death|killed]] by [[Shanh]]s, predatory animals native to Ansion.

During the [[Separatist Crisis]] in [[22 BBY]], in which many [[star system]]s seceded from the [[Galactic Republic]] to form the [[Confederacy of Independent Systems]], the [[planet]] [[Ansion]] became a target in a plot led by [[Shu Mai]], [[president]] of the [[Commerce Guild]]. This was due to the fact it lay at the heart of several treaties, meaning if Ansion seceded, many other worlds would have to follow. Four [[Jedi]]&mdash;[[Jedi Master|Master]] [[Luminara Unduli]], [[Jedi Knight]] [[Obi-Wan Kenobi]], along with their [[Padawan]]s [[Barriss Offee]] and [[Anakin Skywalker]]&mdash;were dispatched on a [[diplomat]]ic [[Mission to Ansion|mission]] to Ansion to reach an agreement with the [[Unity of Community]], Ansion's government. To achieve this, the Jedi hoped to negotiate an arrangement between the Unity of Community and the [[Alwari]], nomadic groups of [[Ansionian]]s, to end the protracted conflict between the two. To that end, they sought out the [[Borokii]], the most powerful overclan of the Alwari, and they were later joined by [[Kyakhta]] and [[Bulgan]], two clanless Ansionian [[Sexes|males]]. Shortly after [[Tooqui]], a male [[Gwurran]], joined their group, the Jedi and their companions encountered a patrol from the Alwari tribe, the [[Qulun]], and were invited by [[Baiuntu]], chief trader of the clan faction, to come to the [[Qulun camp]]. As Baiuntu showed them around the camp, the Jedi and their two Ansionian companions were drugged while sampling [[Paluruvu]], an extract containing a powerful sedative. When they awoke, the Jedi and their Ansionian companions were informed by Baiuntu they were being held due to a large reward promised by [[Soergg Vosadii Bezhin|Soergg the Hutt]] to those who could delay the group's return to [[Cuipernam]], the [[capital]] city of Ansion, until after the vote for secession had taken place. Tooqui, however, was able to evade capture, as he was not with the group at the time they were drugged, and shortly after returned to the camp to free his companions.<ref name="The Approaching Storm" />

The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on official information from the Star Wars Legends continuity, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

"It's said that if the return to Cuipernam of certain offworld visitors could be delayed for two parts of a breeding cycle, a great reward would be paid."
―Baiuntu, to the Jedi and their companions.[src]

In 22 BBY, during a Jedi Order diplomatic mission to the planet Ansion, a skirmish occurred in a camp belonging to the nomadic Qulun clan. Four JediMasters Luminara Unduli and Obi-Wan Kenobi, and their respective Padawans, Barriss Offee and Anakin Skywalker—were dispatched to Ansion to prevent its secession from the Republic. However, they were drugged by the Qulun chieftain Baiuntu and taken captive alongside the clanless Ansionians Kyakhta and Bulgan in an attempt to stop them from completing their mission, as Soergg the Hutt promised a reward to those who delayed the offworlders' return to Cuipernam, the planet's capital city, until after the vote for secession had taken place. The captives were soon freed by the Gwurran Tooqui, and the group promptly escaped the camp.

PreludeEdit

"Welcome, offworlders! The Qulun bid you welcome!"
―Baiuntu, to the Jedi and their companions.[src]

During the Separatist Crisis in 22 BBY, in which many star systems seceded from the Galactic Republic to form the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the planet Ansion became a target in a plot led by Sith Lord Darth Tyranus and Commerce Guild Presidente Shu Mai, to have it secede from the Republic.

Ansion lay at the heart of several treaties, meaning that if it seceded, many other worlds would have to follow. The Jedi Order dispatched four of its members—Jedi Masters Luminara Unduli and Obi-Wan Kenobi, along with their respective Padawans, Barriss Offee and Anakin Skywalker—on a diplomatic mission to Ansion to reach an agreement with the Unity of Community, Ansion's government. The Jedi hoped to negotiate an arrangement between the Unity of Community and the Alwari, the Ansionian nomadic tribes of the Ansion plains, to end the protracted conflict between the two dominant groups. To that end, the Jedi sought out the Borokii, the most powerful overclan of the Alwari, and they were joined in this endeavor by Kyakhta and Bulgan, two clanless Ansionian males.[1]

It was shortly after Tooqui, a male Gwurran, joined their group, that the Jedi and their companions encountered a patrol of the Qulun, a non-traditional Alwari clan that was essentially a trading faction. Baiuntu, the clan's chief trader, invited the Jedi to join him in the Qulun camp. After Baiuntu showed them the Qulun's varied artware and allowed them to sample fragrant essences which they sold, the Jedi and their two Ansionian companions were drugged. Paluruvu, an extract containing a powerful sedative, was the deceptive catalyst that the chief trader employed to sedate both himself and his guests.

When the Jedi and their Ansionian companions awoke, Baiuntu informed them that they were being held because of a large reward promised by Bossban Soergg to those who could delay the group's return to Cuipernam until after the vote for secession had taken place. He also told them that he had destroyed their comlinks in order to keep them from informing anyone in Cuipernam of their progress with the Alwari tribes. Tooqui, however, had evaded capture, as he was not with the group at the time they were drugged. As such, he was able to shortly thereafter return to the camp and free his companions.[1]

The skirmishEdit

"Tooqui tell truth. Tooqui bravest of his people. The strongest, the fiercest, the wisest—"
―Tooqui, as he frees his companions.[src]

Tooqui, having escaped the Qulun camp, agitated a local herd of native lorqual by throwing rocks at them, causing them to stampede toward the camp. Though some of the animals were stopped by sentries, the rest reached the camp. While the Qulun were distracted by the stampeding lorqual, Tooqui sneaked into the transport where the Jedi and their companions were being held and freed them using a knife belonging to Bulgan. After being freed, the Jedi engaged four nearby sentries, quickly killing them before leaving the camp to continue the search for the Borokii overclan.[1]

AftermathEdit

"You idiots! Gather yourselves. Collect your wits!"
―Baiuntu, attempting to organize a pursuit of the Jedi.[src]

While attempting to organize a pursuit of the group, Baiuntu was killed by a pack of shanhs, predatory animals native to Ansion. Shortly after escaping, the Jedi and their companions found the ruling Borokii and fought in a skirmish between the Borokii and the Januul, who were overclan rivals and traditional enemies.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The skirmish in the Qulun camp first appeared in the 2002 novel The Approaching Storm, written by Alan Dean Foster.[1]
