Zam Wesell was a female Clawdite bounty hunter capable of shape-shifting into any appearance she chose. She was the frequent accomplice of Jango Fett, and worked with him prior to the Clone Wars to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala on Coruscant. The job resulted in Wesell's demise, killed by Fett before she could reveal his identity to Amidala's Jedi bodyguards.
Early life and careerEdit
A Clawdite female, Wesell was born on the planet Zolan. She was trained by the Mabari until she desired wealth and journeyed to Denon to employ her skills and training as an assassin. At some point, Wesell worked with bounty hunter Jango Fett, and became both his frequent accomplice and sometime partner. Wesell preferred to strike her targets from afar, utilizing long-range sniper rifles or remote probe droids, and as a changeling was able to assume the appearance of anyone she chose, including her targets. She was capable of taking on any humanoid form.
Assassination plot and deathEdit
Wesell was then hired by Fett to assassinate Naboo Senator Padmé Amidala to prevent her from speaking up against the Military Creation Act. After her attempts at bombing Amidala's landing platform and poisoning her with kouhuns failed, Wesell was apprehended by the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. As she was about to reveal to them her partner's name, Fett killed her with a Kaminoan saberdart.
