|Chronological and political information|
Komari Vosa was a "Fallen" Human Jedi, crime lord, and the last leader of the Bando Gora cult. She served as the catalyst for Count Dooku's plot to draw out a worthy template for the Grand Army of the Republic.
Vosa was the target of The Hunt, which ultimately brought about her untimely demise. Following her death, the Bando Gora ceased to exist.
Vosa was a brash young student with a short temper. Never was this more evident than when the Jedi were called to Galidraan to stop the army of Mandalorians, which the Jedi Council had been misled to believe were killing political activists on the planet. Komari Vosa killed at least twenty of the soldiers, as she would later boast to one of the two Mandalorian survivors, Jango Fett.
The Jedi High Council were disturbed by what seemed to be a growing infatuation in Vosa for her Master. This, in conjunction with her aggression, was used to deem her unworthy of Knighthood. Furious with the decision, Komari took it upon herself to leave Coruscant with four other Jedi on a mission to Baltizaar to save civilians from a cult called the Bando Gora.
The mission was a failure. Two of the Jedi died and the other three, including Vosa, disappeared and were presumed dead.
In truth, they were captured and Komari was tortured to the point of madness, leaving scars along her back and chin. Vosa eventually broke free, but did not escape. Embracing the dark side, she overthrew her captors and became their leader, proving her worth by executing the other two Jedi captives. Another Bando Gora became her chief minion, informing her of happenings around the galaxy.
With Komari Vosa's worth proven, she took the reins and set her plan in motion. It was simple: release a brainwashing agent into death sticks which would immediately enslave the users and recruit them into the Bando Gora. Komari Vosa would ship the agent to Gardulla the Hutt on Tatooine to cover her trail, who would in turn send it over to Sebolto on Malastare to be processed into the death sticks. Sebolto would then send his death sticks to Coruscant's underworld leaders such as Groff Haugg. Such made her the key to the whole operation.
As a result, this disrupted much bigger plans in the highest place of the galaxy. Darth Sidious, with his plans to grab power in the Galactic Senate and then establish himself as Emperor, took notice of the Bando Gora and knew that it had to be destroyed if his plans were to succeed. As such, he ordered Dooku, now his apprentice, Darth Tyranus, to eradicate Komari Vosa and the Bando Gora. Tyranus obeyed his Master and would not only have Vosa killed but find someone to become the template for a clone army.
Tyranus hired bounty hunters and mercenaries across the Galaxy to find, capture or kill Komari Vosa. One named Jango Fett was able to trace the source of the death sticks to Malastare through the corrupt politician, Senator Connus Trell. From Malastare, Fett found the source to be from Gardulla the Hutt. All the while, Jango was eliminating Vosa's underworld contacts, disrupting her plans and ensuring that the hunters became the hunted. Also, Jango was being trailed by fellow Mandalorian, Montross.
Komari Vosa was finally found by Rozatta, the Toydarian working with Jango, to be on one of the moons of Bogden. Roz was forced to give up the information to Montross after he infiltrated her station. Jango was able to get to her in time for him to receive the information.
After fighting his way through countless Bando Gora slaves as well as killing Montross, Jango Fett was captured inside Komari Vosa's citadel. Komari Vosa had her slaves torture Jango until she arrived to see the one bounty hunter who was able to find her. Vosa then interrogated Fett personally. She tried to seduce him, even getting on top of him. Luckily for Fett, another bounty hunter arrived. The Clawdite known as Zam Wesell, who was also working with Jango to find Vosa, infiltrated her citadel. Vosa sensed Wesell and confronted her. Wesell killed two of Vosa's minions and opened fire on her, but Vosa deflected the bolts back to Zam and knocked her over. As Komari Vosa was about to kill her, Wesell shot Fett's restraints. Freed, Fett retrieved his weapons and attacked Vosa.
Vosa fled further into her citadel as Jango pursued her. Eventually confronting Vosa in her throne room, after going through her maze, Jango managed to defeat her and had her at his mercy. Strangely, when Vosa asked if Jango was going to finish her, he showed mercy and lowered his weapons. At that moment, Vosa finally sensed her old Master, who had been observing the confrontation in secret. Tyranus then Force-choked her to death. Fett collected his bounty of five million credits. Tyranus offered Fett a chance at immortality: to be cloned. Fett accepted, but part of the bargain was that he would be provided with a single clone, unaltered. With this deal struck, Fett accompanied Tyranus to Kamino to be used as the template for a clone army.
Vosa's legacy would, in a way, live on. Her twin lightsabers were given to Asajj Ventress as a gift by Tyranus, after he chopped her two other lightsabers in half testing to see if she was truly Sith material.
Komari Vosa was a headstrong Padawan learner, talented but impatient. She was infatuated with Dooku, which was one of the factors which led to her dismissal from the Order. She was a capable warrior, especially with two blades, and killed a large number of Mandalorians during the Battle of Galidraan.
After her capture, she was subjected to torture and finally snapped, falling to the Dark Side. As the leader of the Bando Gora, Vosa sought to revenge herself against the Republic, the Jedi, and Dooku himself. Many, including Darth Sidious, considered her a madwoman.
"Kill them. Kill them now. Bring me their bodies." (Star Wars: Bounty Hunter)
"Congratulations, bounty hunter… you've found me." (Star Wars: Bounty Hunter)
Komari Vosa was voiced by Tamara Phillips in Star Wars: Bounty Hunter.
In an alternate ending to Bounty Hunter, if the player loses against Komari Vosa, she leaps onto Jango's shoulders and slices his head off with her dual sabers, much like how his employer, Count Dooku, loses his life in Episode III and, to a lesser degree, how Jango himself dies canonically in Episode II.
A date for Komari Vosa's apprenticeship to Dooku (50 BBY) is given in the Star Wars Annual 2008 as part of a timeline in Dooku's article. However, since the timeline has other obvious continuity issues, the date may not be accurate. Assuming Vosa was 12 years old when she was chosen as a Padawan, this gives her an approximate birthdate of 62 BBY. She would then have been about 18 at the current placement of the Battle of Galidraan (44 BBY), and would have been captured by the Bando Gora at approximately age 23 in 39 BBY.
