Grievous was a General and the Supreme Commander of the Separatist Droid Armies during the Clone Wars. He became a cyborg to become stronger and replaced his arms with cybernetic ones that split into two, giving him four arms. Count Dooku trained him in Lightsaber Combat and made him a General in the Separatist Armies.

Biography Edit

Early life Edit

Grievous was a Kaleesh warlord originally. He claimed to have wanted to be rebuilt as a cyborg to become more powerful.

Hiring AD-W4 Edit

Early the Clone Wars, Grievous hired the droid mercenary AD-W4 to oversee the Separatists' operations on the planet Hissrich. Grievous admitted that he would have liked to do so himself, but could not as he had an entire droid army to command. AD-W4 served as commander of the droid forces on the planet, and battled with Mace Windu and his Jedi squadron. Ultimately, the droid and his forces were defeated and Hissrich was taken by the Republic.

The Malevolence Edit

Grievous then took Malevolence as his flagship. Under the general's command he began the Malevolence campaign, executing attacks on Republic fleets that left no survivors. While stationed in the Abregado system with Count Dooku aboard, a Republic task force led by Jedi Master Plo Koon arrived in the system to engage the warship. The ion cannons of the Malevolence disabled the Republic fleet's  shields, and this led to the eradication of the fleet. A few individuals including Plo Koon managed to survive via escape pods, but Dooku dispatched a pod hunter to destroy the pods. The survivors were rescued by Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano on the Twilight. As a result of the escape of some survivors, Dooku's trust in Grievous was shaken, and the Sith Lord left to discuss plans with his master, Darth Sidious.


Grievous during the Clone Wars

After intercepting and iradicating a Republic fleet in the Ryndellia system, Grievous, instructed by Count Dooku via hologram, took the Malevolence to destroy a Republic medical facility that was treating over 60,000 wounded clones. In order to reach the target, the Malevolence had to navigate around the Kaliida Nebula. Anakin Skywalker led a small strike force of fighters which disabled the ion cannons of the Malevolence. After this, a fleet led by Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived and attacked Grievous' crippled ship.  Grievous was forced to

retreat, but Dooku came up with a new plan: taking Senator Padmé Amidala hostage. After Senator Amidala's ship was captured, the Republic fleet stopped firing, and a team was sent to board the Malevolence led by Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. Grievous fought Obi-Wan Kenobi and overpowered him, but the two Jedi managed to escape with Padmé and C-3PO. Grievous pursued the Twilight in his personal starfighter, the Soulless One but Anakin had rigged the navigation system of the Malevolence such that when the ship engaged its hyperdrive, it would crash directly into a nearby moon. After the destruction of the Malevolence, the Republic made efforts to locate him. Clone Intelligence spotted him in the Balmorra system, but he vanished soon afterwards.

Rishi Edit

Weeks later, Grievous arranged for an attack on the planet Kamino, determined to stop the clone production at its source. In order to reach the planet undetected, Grievous sent a team of BX-series droid commandos to seize Rishi Station from the clone troopers stationed there. After the commando droids had taken control of the station, Grievous was contacted by their captain aboard his frigate, who informed him that the outpost was secure, and that they managed to disable the alarm and activate the all-clear signal. Grievous ordered the droid captain to keep the signal activated, so as not to draw the Republic's attention and lose the element of surprise. After ending the transmission, a battle droid informed the general that their spy on Kamino, Asajj Ventress, was contacting him. Ventress assured Grievous that everything was ready for their planned invasion. Pleased the General informed her that he had almost reached their rendezvous point. However, after losing contact with the commando droids, Grievous sent a battalion of droids to the station to investigate, in order to ensure that the invasion continued He was then informed that there are still some clones remaining, and ordered them eliminated. Unfortunately , the station was destroyed and the all-clear signal stopped transmitting. Realizing they were under attack, the Republic fleet moved into the Rishi system and attacked Grievous' fleet, forcing him out of the system.

Retreat at Bothawui Edit

Grievous and his forces then attacked Anakin Skywalker's fleet at Bothawui. However, Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano managed to defeat Grievous's fleet after devising sveral tactics, and the general fled on Soulless One. Following, R2-D2, who had been captured by Gha Nachkt, was offered to Grievous.

Attacking Skywalker Edit

Later, Gha Nachkt informed Grievous that he had R2-D2 in his possession and also revealed that Anakin Skywalker had boarded the ship searching for the droid. However, Grievous threatened him, demanding that Nachkt bring the droid to him as fast as he could.

Not long after, Grievous detected Skywalker's fighter's tracking beacon, which had been activated by R3-S6, Skywalker's replacement astromech droid, in reality a Separatist spy. Grievous attacked the jedi, destroying his Hyperspace transport ring and preventing his escape. Grievous then launched a squadron of vulture droids to kill the Jedi, and ordered his Munificent-class star frigates to move in. However, Skywalker was rescued by the timely arrival of his apprentice Ahsoka Tano and the Twilight. The General then ordered his ships to prevent their escape, but the Twilight was able to navigate between the two battleships, causing them to collide with each other, destroying the vulture droids. The Jedi's ship then jumped to hyperspace. In his anger, Grievous decapitated an unfortunate battle droid who had informed him that the Jedi had escaped.
