Tensions gather on the home planet of Droid General Grievous, Kalee. As two armies that were once a united tribe charge the other with a goal of destruction of their foes, Jedi Council members Mace Windu, Yoda, Plo Koon, and Kit Fisto unanimously vote Obi-Wan, the "Negotiator" to travel to the savannah planet and bring peace. Little do the Jedi suspect that on another side of the galaxy, Count Dooku fills General Grievous's head with lies about his past, and how he should aid the Shadow Kaleesh in the destruction of his old tribe, the Purifites. A war soon breaks out between both sides of the now split tribe, Jedi on one side, Separatists on the other. Obi-Wan leads to the unity of the tribes and the Purifites' victory over the Shadows, Kaleesh Chief Suirad Kahmentuatn allowing Obi-Wan to use Kalee as a Republic base, where he and any friends would be welcome. Grievous later returns to Dooku stating his failure, the General suffering an unviewed torture.
