|Chronological and political information|
Ona Nobis was a bounty hunter hired by the scientist Jenna Zan Arbor to capture Jedi for her experiments. Nobis was a member of the near-Human Sorrusian race. She wielded a deadly whip which could be used as a laser as well (though not exactly the same technology as a lightwhip).
Nobis began to track Didi Oddo because he had a datapad revealing information on Jenna Zan Arbor. Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi were sent to protect Didi. As a master of disguise, Nobis sold Didi a cottage where he believed he could hide. After he had left, Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan discovered what Nobis had done and went to confront her. While fighting, Obi-Wan kicked Ona Nobis by swinging from some pipes and later glanced her a blow on the hand. She escaped after capturing Qui-Gon and became obsessed with having revenge on Obi-Wan.
When Jedi Master Adi Gallia and her Padawan Siri Tachi were sent to help look for Qui-Gon, Obi-Wan and Siri started looking for leads. Obi-Wan battled Ona again at a fake hospital in the city of Arra on Sorrus. He was forced to leave the fight due to orders given to him by Qui-Gon. Later on Belasco, the two Masters and Padawans fought Zan Arbor and Ona Nobis.
In a last attempt to escape, Ona Nobis used her whip to hang from a pipe jutting out from the roof of a building. Adi charged her and cut the whip in half, sending Ona Nobis falling to her death.
