The Bando Gora cult was a deadly Force-worshipping criminal organization that operated around the time of the Invasion of Naboo.

History

"The Bando Gora has become a dangerous parasite. It must be eradicated."
ā€•Darth Sidious to Darth Tyranus ā€” (audio)Listen (file info)

The cult ruled through fear on Outer Rim Territories and uncivilized worlds in the galaxy, often killing those who stood in their way or refused to convert. Their ruthless assassination attacks began crippling the galaxy's most powerful industries. Shortly after the Battle of Galidraan, the cult attacked the planet Baltizaar. The Galactic Republic requested Jedi intervention, but the Jedi were under-prepared to face the power of the Bando Gora. The Jedi were almost overwhelmed and many died, but the cult was eventually driven off.

One unauthorized member of the Jedi task force was Komari Vosa, who was captured by the cult with two others and brutally tortured. Succumbing to the dark side of the Force, she broke free and slaughtered both her captors and fellow captives before taking leadership of the cult.

Members of the cult became hideous, with black mottled skin and glowing red or blue eyes. Bando Gora captains usually wore terrifying masks with long, downward horns and carried staffs which emitted green balls of fire. Shortly after the Battle of Naboo, the Bando Gora produced a potent strain of death stick which contained even more powerful narcotics and was used to help brainwash victims. The cult soon proved to be a threat to the Republic, as well as to the Sith lords Darth Tyranus and Darth Sidious.

Dooku hired bounty hunters Jango Fett and Montross to track down Vosa for a sum of 5 million Republic credits, an offer few could refuse. After chasing the Dark Jedi down to Kohlma, the burial moon of Bogden, and defeating his rival, Fett penetrated Vosa's heavily defended fortress and engaged her in a furious battle. He finally bested Komari, but spared her life. Dooku, who somehow seemed to be present, had other ideas and used the dark side to choke her to death, decapitating the Bando Gora cult and ending their reign of terror. He revealed that he knew the location of Vosa all along, that this was a test and made an agreement with Jango for him to become the template for a clone army. It is not known what happened to the thousands of servants. Whether they died or reverted back to normal is unknown.

Bando Gora was a cult created by Komari Vosa. After Vosa's death at the hands of Jango Fett and Count Dooku, Thrall Delacroix, a Sith Lord at the time, refounded it.

First Incarnation

The Bando Gora ruled through fear on Outer Rim Territories and uncivilized worlds in the Galaxy, often killing those who stood in their way or refused to convert. Their ruthless assassination attacks began crippling the galaxy's most powerful industries. Shortly after the Battle of Galidraan, the cult attacked the planet Baltizaar. The Galactic Republic requested Jedi intervention, but the Jedi were under-prepared to face the power of the Bando Gora. The Jedi were almost overwhelmed and many died, but the cult was eventually driven off.

One unauthorized member of the Jedi task force was Komari Vosa, who was captured by the cult with two others and brutally tortured. Succumbing to the dark side of the Force, she broke free and slaughtered both her captors and fellow captives before taking leadership of the cult.

Shortly after the Battle of Naboo, the Bando Gora produced a potent strain of death stick which contained even more powerful narcotics and was used to help brainwash victims. The cult soon proved to be a threat to the Republic, as well as to the Sith lords Count Dooku and Darth Sidious.

Dooku hired bounty hunters Jango Fett and Montross to track down Vosa for a sum of 5 million Republic credits, an offer few could refuse. After chasing the Dark Jedi down to Kohlma, the burial moon of Bogden, and defeating his rival, Fett penetrated Vosa's heavily defended fortress and engaged her in a furious battle. He finally bested Komari, but spared her life. Dooku, who somehow seemed to be present, had other ideas and used the dark side to choke her to death, decapitating the Bando Gora cult and ending their reign of terror, and made an agreement with Jango for him to become the template for a clone army.

Second Incarnation

Many years after the first Bando Gora, Thrall, one third of the notorious Delacroix brothers, found out about it and decided to recreate it. He made an almost perfect replica of the first incarnation, but with a few minor adjustments. Thel Vadum was returned and promoted to Second-In-Command and the cult again used death stick to brainwash victims into joining them. Thrall somehow gained the power to turn anyone he touches into cult members (which is why he always wore gloves). The Bando Gora had risen again and the fear and respect for it along with it.

Prominent Figures of the Cult

The most prominent members of the cult (both incarnations) included:

  • Thel Vadum (aka the Mysterious Scene Stealer)- Lieutenant in the first incarnation and second-in-command in the second incarnation
  • Elan Sel'Sabagno (aka Elan Sleazebaggano)- The second incarnation's main source of death stick.
