A skirmish took place on the moon Wasskah during the Clone Wars when a group of captive Jedi managed to overpower their Trandoshan captors. With the later help of Wookiee reinforcements, they managed to kill all but three of them, including their leader Garnac.
During the Clone Wars, a group of Trandoshan hunters, led by Garnac, had been bringing captives to the Trandoshan moon Wasskah, so that they could hunt them for sport. A small team of these fugitives, Jedi younglings Kalifa, Jinx and O-Mer, evaded the hunters by staying hidden and out of combat.
One of the hunters, Lo-Taren captured the Padawan Ahsoka Tano during the Second Battle of Felucia and she was brought to the moon. There, they dropped her with the other captured civilians and the Trandonshans shot at them, killing the Selkath Morgo and the Sakiyan Vadoo. Tano was rescued by Kalifa she advocated a more aggressive stance among the group.
The Snivvian Katt Mol and Terrelian Jango Jumper Lika were killed off the next day by the Trandoshans Ratter and Sochek. Tano and the other three padawans were pursued by Lo-Taren but managed to disarm and almost kill him. Tano eventually came up with an idea to get onto their headquarters, the Ubrikkian Floating Fortress, and tried to rally the other three padawans. However they were soon pursued by Garnac's son Dar. Dar engaged them in hand to hand combat but Tano managed to kill him before he could kill Kalifa. Garnac then shot Kalifa in his rage and Tano took command of the remaining padawans.
Bringing down the slave shipEdit
They sought to capture the slave ship that carried them there on it's next delivery. They jumped onto the side and the Tarndoshan crew, Clutch and Goron, became aware of them. Goron climbed outside the ship's hull and Jinx and O-Mer attacked him, disarming him quickly. Tano then got into the ship ad attacked Clutch and when killing him, she caused severe damage to the ships controls, forcing the vessel to spin around. Jinx and O-Mer managed to throw Goron off the ship as it crash landed and it's sole prisoner, the Wookiee Chewbacca, barely managed to escape. Chewbacca proposed building a transmitter from the ships wreckage and this meant they would need to return there and evade the newly found patrols Garnac had set up. They reached the wreckage again and Tano and Chewbacca went in to collect components for a transmitter.
Meanwhile, Krix and Smug arrived on one of their MSP80 Pteropter hover pods and Smug was dropped of to watch the wreckage. Smug soon spotted Tano and Chewbacca inside the wreckage but did not know that Jinx and O-Mer were under him. The two younglings attacked him and Tano and Chewbacca came in to help. They eventually overpowered Smug and tied him up. Chewbacca attempted to construct a transmitter from the pieces they had gotten together, but O-Mer and Jinx decided that it wouldn't work and persuaded Tano and Chewbacca into attacking the floating fortress of the hunters. They first mind tricked their prisoner Smug into calling Krix back. They then hijacked the vehicle when it arrived, knocking Krix and Smug unconscious.
Attacking the flying fortressEdit
When they reached the fortress they attacked two patrolling Trandoshans, quickly throwing Lagon overboard. The other hunter, Ramy, called out to the others and Garnac, Lo-Taren and Sochek appeared at his balcony. Garnac told his men to kill the attackers and they made for a way down to the lower deck. Ratter and Gilas also appeared and fire at the Tano and the others. Ramy attempted to get onto a hoverpod but Tano and Jinx used the force to throw it aside, hitting Ratter and Gilas. Chewbacca attacked Ramy and Tano and Jinx fought the other two when Lo-Taren and Sochek made it to the scene. O-Mer fired at them from his hoverpod and they jumped to the side. Garnac got to a gatling gun and fire at O-Mer's hoverpod until it was damaged enough to crash into the fight scene. The Trandoshans got up and Tano and the others found themselves overpowered.
However in the meantime, Chewbacca's transmitter had managed to reach the Wookiees and five of their warriors, including by General Tarfful, and the bounty hunters Sugi and Seripas arrived aboard the Halo. The Trandoshans open fired on them and Tano and her group attacked them, ensuing chaos on the lower decks of the flying fortress. Whilst Lo-Taren and Sochek took cover behind one of the downed hoverpod, the other hunters fought the Wookiees head on with Chewbacca fighting Ratter. Garnac attempted to use his gatling gun but the two Wookiees on the Halo damaged it so he took cover behind it instead. Tarfful quickly threw Ramy overboard and Tarfful wrestled with Gilas. Tarfful then got the upper hand and stomped of Gilas' head, killing the Trandoshan instantly.
As the fight got more hopeless for the Trandoshan's, Garnac ran back inside and Tano made chase after she got a boost up to the balcony from one of the Wookiee warriors. Chewbacca continued to fight with Ratter until he overpowered the Wookiee and sent him sprawling on the floor. O-Mer then hit him with a gun and Chewbacca got his leg and threw him overboard. In the mean time Tano found Garnac in his trophy room and the two fought each other. Lo-Taren and Sochek found themselves pinned down by the Wookiees behind the hoverpod and when Lo-Taren was shot dead, Sochek was distracted and Jinx used the force to move the hoverpod and give the Wookiee warriors a chance to shoot him dead. Tano eventually bested Garnac and when he tried to get his gun back, she force pushed him over the balcony, killing him on impact with the lower deck.
Ahsoka and the younglings returned to the Jedi Order after the battle. Garnac's hunting guild was essentially over. However, three of the Trandoshans had made it out: Ramy, who had survived his fall; and Kirx and Smug, who eventually regained consciousness following the hijacking of their pod. The three came relocate on Nal Hutta.
