Well it's that time again, another Star Wars respect thread and this time going over an obscure, yet pretty awesome character. He has no name, or one that is mentioned, but he shows some impressive stuff none the less, this respect thread will be a tad short considering he only appears in 5 issues, so let's get to it!

Respect the Ninth Assassin!

The explosion of the same type from the 1st two scans, was also powerful enough to kill some Clone Troopers.

Equipment

Has macrobionculars which can see infa-red.

Has a grappling line, enabling him to swing pretty good through trees and the like.

Skill

The mercs were able to react quick enough to shoot down a flying creature coming at them and were then able to gun down 4 armed guards who had their weapons raised and ready to fire.

Here he avoids being rammed by a huge creature before killing it with ease, using his blades.

Here he takes down a Red Guard(before they became actual Royal Guards with better training), them being handpicked from the best trained Senate Guards, who are chosen from the best law enforcement agencies in the galaxy.

Here he fights against Vader, who was holding back, but even still, he impressed Vader with his skill and ability.

Nice work! He was a pretty cool character, shame he had to bite it to show how awesome Vader is, he even had cool swords too.

(Minor point- the goggles show Infra-red, not infer. Spellcheck probably mixed it up on you.)

@wolfrazer: been going on a Wolfrazer RT binge. I love these short but sweet RTs they are works of art btw I found this.

Star wars insider: 141
Star wars insider: 141

its says that the 9th assassin is always two steps ahead of his prey per the author, and then the author says his Vibroblades are made of custom cortosis weave as well, good gear IMO
