A mission to Anzat occurred when Jedi Master Quinlan Vos brought back information that Sora Bulq had made several trips to Anzat and the Jedi thought he was up to something out there. Master Tholme believed he had to take part in the mission and worked alongside Jedi Knight Aayla Secura and her troops.
When they arrived on Anzat, Tholme visited Akku Seii, his former teacher, while Secura went to learn about Bulq's activities in the planet. When Tholme found Seii, he asked him why Sora Bulq came so frequently to Anzat, but the Anzati Code of Honor forbade the telling of contracts or kills. Suddenly, some Anzati assassins attacked Tholme. The Jedi Master tried not to kill anyone. When the fight was over, Tholme realized that all that assassins were students of Akku Seii, which was strange, because the tradition was always one teacher and one student. Seii told him that there were no teachers available.
Meanwhile, Aayla went to Maggot's Cantina, searching for somebody that could help her. There, the Houk Gort said that he had seen Bulq and told Secura where she could find him. Aayla went to the specified place, where she found Sora Bulq's ship. She got inside and downloaded the ship's logs. While leaving, a Morgukai assassin attacked her but she defeated him. Then Bulq appeared with Rath Kelkko and other Confederacy people talking about their plans with the Anzati teachers and the Morgukai.
Later, Tholme and Secura met at their ship and analyzed the Bulq's ship's logs and they noticed that the Dark Jedi often visited Saleucami, so they assumed that probably Sora Bulq had a base there. Then Tholme and Secura's paths split, with Aayla going to Trigalis, where she had been ordered, and Tholme to Saleucami.
