The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

Fox: "Suspect has killed three clones. Code red. If you see the target, shoot to kill."
Skywalker: "Belay that order, Commander Fox."
Fox: "She's killed troopers!"
Rex: "I know Commander Tano. She would never do something like this."
―Commander Fox, Anakin Skywalker, and Captain Rex discuss how Ahsoka Tano's escape should be handled[src]

After her arrest for the murder of Letta Turmond, Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano managed to effect an escape from the Republic military base where she was being held.

PreludeEdit

"Can't say I blame you, Commander Tano, but all the same, you're under arrest."
"I—n-no. I did not do this."
―Commander Fox and Ahsoka Tano, after Letta Turmond was killed while Tano was in her cell[src]

Ahsoka Tano is placed under arrest by Commander Fox

After the bombing of the Jedi Temple killing several Jedi, clone troopers, and Temple workers, Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano discovered that Letta Turmond, the wife of a Temple worker by the name of Jackar Bowmani, had fed her husband nano-droids which then exploded when Bowmani was working inside the Temple. The Jedi placed Turmond under arrest[6] and she was later transferred to the custody of the military at the request of Chancellor Palpatine. While being held at the Republic military base, Turmond asked to see Padawan Tano.[2]

Suspicious of her motives, Padawan Tano sought to personally interrogate the prisoner in order to better understand the reasoning behind the murder of her Jedi compatriots. Turmond revealed that she had been approached by another Jedi, disillusioned with the Jedi Order, who had asked her to give the nano-droids to Bowmani. However, before Turmond could reveal that Jedi to be Barriss Offee she was Force choked by Offee[1] who had hidden herself and thereby framed Tano for Turmond's murder.[2][1] Commander Fox of the Coruscant Guard, seeing the chocking Turmond on the monitor screen, rushed in with two other troopers and placed a confused Tano under arrest on suspicion of murder. After reviewing the footage which had no audio but appeared to show Tano chocking Turmond, Admiral Wilhuff Tarkin believed Tano to be guilty, given that she was displeased with Turmond being placed under military jurisdiction. Tarkin then restricted visitors, especially to Skywalker, who was forced to leave when he demanded to be let through.[2]

The escapeEdit

"I'm not guilty!"

Tano on the run from clone troopers

After a brief stay in a cell, Tano noticed a security access card sitting on the floor just beyond the force field barring the door. Assuming it had been planted by her master, she levitated the card with the Force and used it to escape her cell. Proceeding through the corridors, Tano came upon lightsabers and comlink—amidst several unconscious troopers. As she was answering her beeping comlink, Commander Fox entered the security observation room and and seeing Tano among the unconscious clones, immediately assumed she was the guilty party. Instead of staying to face Fox, Tano ran, trying to escape the facility. Fox sounded the alert, and after evading several clone patrols, Tano found three dead clones, apparently killed with a lightsaber. A chase through the facility ensued, with orders given by Fox to shoot to kill, until the arrival and intercession of Anakin Skywalker and Captain Rex, at which point the troops were ordered to only fire stun blasts and capture Tano alive.[2]

All clone shock troopers were placed on alert throughout the base and the hunt continued into the landing area outside the base and past the memorial. It was there that the shock troopers spotted Tano and gave cahse with increasing numbers of troopers and LAAT/i craft pursuing her. During the chase, as she deflected stun bolts, one clone fired a rocket launcher, knocking her off her feet. As she dropped her lightsabers, Tano retrieved one before continuing to run. Eventually, Tano found herself cornered, but was once more able to escape by cutting into a nearby piping system. She managed to evade the troopers before finding herself at the end of the pipe leading to a sinkhole towards the Coruscant underworld. Skywalker managed to find her, pleading her to come back, as escaping would only make things worse. However, Tano refused to be imprisoned for crimes she did not commit and pleaded him to trust her as she trusted him while she finds proof of her innocence. As Rex and Fox caught up to Skywalker, Ahsoka jumped onto a transport descending into the underworld.[2]
