Early life

Zam was born on the planet Zolan, a member of the changeling Clawdite race that was constantly at war with the native Zolanders, a race similar to the Clawdites but lacking their chameleon abilities. Zam was trained in the ways of the Mabari, an ancient order of warrior-knights from Zolan. She left Zolan at a young age to work as a corporate security officer on Denon, an ecumenopolis second only to Coruscant. She rose from officer to sergeant to executive bodyguard in short time before she decided that she didn't earn enough and became a professional bounty hunter.

Partnership with Jango Fett

One of Zam's earliest missions was the capture of Bendix Fust, a smuggler wanted by Malastarian Dug crime lord Sebolto. Fust was an inmate at the infamous Oovo IV asteroid prison, but that didn't stop Zam from breaking in, capturing him, and staging a riot in order to cover her escape. Unfortunately, the notorious Jango Fett had also broken in at the same time, for the same target. Their mutual interference botched their respective plans and they were forced to work together to escape. Zam cost Jango his ship and he was forced to steal a prototype Firespray Patrol Craft, which he would eventually call the Slave I.

They continued to collaborate after Fust was turned in to Sebolto. Jango had been working a larger job, tracking Komari Vosa, a former Jedi who had become the leader of the Bando Gora cult. After Sebolto's clues led Jango and Zam to Tatooine, Zam was forced to betray Jango to save herself from Gardulla the Hutt. Nevertheless, Jango escaped certain death and found what he needed from Gardulla, killing her as a favor to Jabba the Hutt. For her treason, Jango left Zam in Gardulla's dungeon.

Somehow, she managed to escape and track Jango to one of the moons of Bogden, headquarters of the Bando Gora. Jango was captured by Komari Vosa and only Zam's timely interference saved him, though her blasts were deflected by Vosa's twin lightsabers. Before Vosa could finish her, Zam blasted the bonds holding Jango, allowing him to rush for his weapons. Startled, Vosa fled, but not before Jango reached her and after a long battle, defeated her. // Spoiler warning: Aargau is one of the Deep Core Worlds, and is the headquarters of the Bank of Aargau, which is owned by the Confederacy of Independent Systems ally, the InterGalactic Banking Clan. ...


Though both Zam and Jango preferred working alone, they would team up from time to time over a period of ten years.


One of these times was when Zam and Jango teamed up to stop General Ashar Khorda, who intended to use a religious idol to destroy Coruscant. Tracking down Khorda, they fought in one of Coruscant's reactor relays, Zam killing some of the terrorists while Jango and the Jedi Master Yarael Poof killed the others. Zam saved Coruscant by saving the idol when it fell off the relay. Yarael Poof then volunteered to disable it. Zam was the quickest to trust the Jedi Master, and let him disable it, even though it cost him his life. She tipped off the Jedi Council about the death of Yarael Poof before she and Jango took the idol back to its rightful place. After returning to Kamino with Jango, she gave him a kiss on the cheek, before disappearing again. This article or section does not cite any references or sources. ...

Death

Zam changing back to her true form upon her death.

In Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones, Jango was hired by Count Dooku and Nute Gunray to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala. To conceal ties to the Sith Lord Darth Tyranus, Jango sub-contracted the job to Zam. Initially, she planted explosives on the senator's landing platform, resulting in the death of a well-placed decoy but ultimately missing the senator. For the second attempt, Jango provided her with poisonous Kohoun worms, which she loaded into her assassin droid, ASN-121. The droid successfully inserted the worms into the senator's bedroom, but her Jedi guards Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi sensed their presence and Anakin rushed in to slice the worms in half with his lightsaber. As Zam escaped in her speeder, the two Jedi chased her through the skies of Coruscant until she crash-landed near a seedy bar. Concealed by the bar patrons, she attempted to sneak up on Obi-Wan, suffering a severed hand from the Jedi's lightsaber strike. Just as Zam was about to succumb to Anakin's interrogation, Jango Fett killed her from afar with a toxic dart. Image File history File links No higher resolution available. ...
