Cargo of Doom
- "You will…never…get me to…unlock the…holocron."
"Unfortunately, I don't have time to discuss this with you. Hit him again, full power!"
- ―Ropal and Bane, prior to the former's death
During the Clone Wars, a bounty hunter named Cad Bane found that Ropal had the crystal that he needed to open a holocron Bane had been instructed to steal. The bounty hunter attacked and abducted Ropal on Devaron. Bane then tortured the Rodian to death in an effort to try to make him open the holocron. Meanwhile, two Jedi, Anakin Skywalker and his padawan Ahsoka Tano, went to rescue him but were too late; Ropal was already dead. The bounty hunter then used Anakin Skywalker to open the holocron by holding his Padawan hostage threatening to kill her if he refused. Skywalker subsequently opened the crystal and Bane escaped to report back to his employer Darth Sidious.
