History[edit | edit source]

Kit Fisto arrives at Vassek 3

During the Clone Wars, a conflict fought between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, a Galactic Republic task force traced a frigate stolen by Viceroy Nute Gunray of the Trade Federation to General Grievous's fortress on Vassek 3. However, the starship was not there, as Separatist leader Count Dooku had arranged for its tracking beacon to be placed in the fortress, wishing to test Grievous' combat abilities. Infiltrating the castle, the Republic forced were all but destroyed by the Kaleesh warlord and his forces. The survivors, Jedi Master Kit Fisto and his astromech droid, R6-H5, only narrowly escaped Grievous and his IG-100 MagnaGuards.[1]
