- "—ah, Governor, thank you for attending."
"It is such an honor!"
"The honor is all mine."
- ―Count Dooku and the Aqualish governor
An Aqualish male served as a governor and supported the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars. In the year 19 BBY, the governor and his wife attended a gala held on the Separatist capital planet Raxus to celebrate the Confederacy's bestowment of the Raxian Humanitarian Award upon its leader, Count Dooku. As the count spoke with his former apprentice, Asajj Ventress, at the event, he noticed the governor in attendance and thanked him for coming. The governor told Dooku that he was honored, and enthusiastically shook the count's hand. As a member of the Aqualish species, the governor had arachnid-like tusks which, at the gala, appeared white and polished. The governor wore a well-kept uniform while attending the gala, which was weighed down by epaulets and medals.
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
The Aqualish governor appeared in the 2015 novel Dark Disciple, written by Christie Golden and adapted from an unfinished eight-episode story arc for the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, which was written by Katie Lucas, Matt Michnovetz, and Dave Filoni.

Notes and references[edit | edit source]
- Dark Disciple
- Ultimate Star Wars, New Edition establishes that Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos's plot to assassinate Count Dooku took place between the trial and exoneration of Ahsoka Tano and the Battle of Coruscant, both of which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas date to 19 BBY. Therefore, the plot to assassinate Dooku, as well as the gala on Raxus, must have also taken place in 19 BBY.
