A War on Two Fronts
- "Come on, Dono! [...] You can do better than that!"
- ―Saw Gerrera
After Count Dooku placed King Sanjay Rash as ruler of Onderon, thus aligning the planet with the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Dono joined the Onderon Rebels to battle against the droid occupation of the planet. When the rebellion was struggling to maintain resistance, its unofficial leader, Saw Gerrera, contacted the Jedi Council requesting assistance. The Council responded by sending advisers Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Captain Rex and Ahsoka Tano to the planet to guide the rebellion. Dono took part in one of the training exercises the Jedi prepared involving the disabling of an Armored Assault Tank. She later accompanied the rebels as they infiltrated the capitol city, Iziz.
- "All in favor of Steela as our leader, raise your hand!"
- ―Dono, nominating Steela Gerrera as the Rebellion leader
Once the rebellion established a safe house within the capitol, they began striking numerous droid targets, including patrols and checkpoints.
The Soft War
After the rebels' first major victory—destroying the city's power substation, word was released that former Onderon king, Ramsis Dendup, was to be executed immediately. Dono overheard this in the market place and reported it back to the rebel leaders at their safehouse. Distressed and running out of time, Saw stated he would infiltrate the royal palace and free Dendup from his captors. Steela and Padawan Ahsoka strongly urged against it, but Saw ignored them and went to the palace anyway. As a result, Steela ordered Dono to follow Saw and ensure his safety. Unfortunately, upon reaching the palace, Dono watched as Saw attempted to take Dendup out of the palace, only to trigger the alarms by hitting the inside of the one-way shield covering the roof top terrace.
She quickly returned to the safehouse and reported Saw's capture to the others. Though Bonteri and some of the rebels wanted to assault the palace to free Saw, Steela objected to the risks and instead offered a plan to rescue Dendup and Gerrera just before the execution. During the attempt, Dono aided in subduing King Rash, General Kalani and the nearby droids, but as she led the group away from the palace, she was killed by a blaster shot to the chest from a B2 Super Battle Droid.
