3. Expanded Concept

Assigned to develop a new Sith villain for Attack Of The Clones, concept artist Dermot Power drew from his own youthful interest in martial arts to create a vampiric and samurai-like female character. "I deliberately curved the Sith's lightsaber," Dermot says. "I wanted something exotic, almost Arabic."

Dermot's sketches were temporarily shelved when the actor Christopher Lee signed on to play Count Dooku. Sidious didn't have time to train a young apprentice.

However, the art was later used for Asajj Ventress, Dooku's apprentice. She now appears in Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes, comics, and novels.
