|Chronological and political information|
Bodotor Thuvat was the leader of the Nockudumey Terrorists around the time from 23-22 BBY. One of his first public moves as leader was to threaten to assassinate Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. He later made an alliance with Count Dooku of the Separatists, but it was a fragile alliance at best.
A conspiracy rose against Bodotor during the Clone Wars led by Mecupa, and he eventually was overthrown.
- "I am a Terrorist Leader. A leader, perhaps, is true, but 'terrorist' is merely a title."
- ―Bodotor Thuvat[src]
Little is known of Bodotor Thuvat's rise to power when he became leader of the Nockudumey Terrorists, but he was one of the later successors to , founder of the organization. Revan's successors before Bodotor had turned the Nockudumey into an actual terrorist organization, which Revan had not intended.
Assassinating the ChancellorEdit
In 22 BBY, Bodotor made public threats to assassinate Supreme Chancellor Palpatine. The Republic made various attempts to contact Thuvat, but he would not respond, and the Chancellor announced that they would track the Nockudumey down after a last warning. Bodotor moved the terrorists from the current base to Mithus, a cold snow-covered world, where they set a trap for the Republic.
He had not intended to win, however; he simply wanted to announce the Nockudumey's presence to the Republic. The Republic Peace Keepers attacked their base, defeating a small portion of the terrorists. Bodotor landed in the battle half-way through it, and was almost blasted by the laser fire of a Republic Gunship piloted by Larry Drewton when distracted by Burt Drewton in a sword fight. Dem Nozah had almost suffered the same fate; Konot'tak Malus himself, the Commander of the battle, had died.
Alliance with the SeparatistsEdit
- "I am surprised by you, Thuvat. I would not have thought that such a small terrorist organization would dare challenge the Republic."
- ―Count Dooku to Bodotor
Following the Battle of Mithus, Bodotor Thuvat moved the Nockudumey to the underlevels of Coruscant, and met with the Separatist Leaders on Geonosis, including Count Dooku. Nute Gunray, the Viceroy of the Trade Federation, gave a number of battle droids to the Nockudumey.
Soon after the Peace Keepers were sent to investigate the Coruscant underlevels. Once inside the base, the Drewtons and Jedi Master Idnum-Ki found a toxin which could destroy an entire city, but then instantly a group of battle droids fired upon them.
Kyle Krenis, however, found Bodotor and Dem, although he was struck down by Count Dooku's Force Lightning, who was also present. Thuvat had wanted to kill Krenis so he would not alert anyone of finding the terrorists, but Dooku advised not to, saying that the sound of blaster fire would be heard. Bodotor then, after being promised there would be a war very soon, moved the Nockudumey again, this time to .
The Clone Wars beginEdit
- "The Republic is continually getting weaker under Count Dooku's assaults. Eventually the two sides are going to destroy each other, and finally, when the Clone Wars are at an end, we shall take over."
- ―Bodotor Thuvat
Thuvat was present while Count Dooku held a meeting of the Separatists on Geonosis, one that a Jedi named Obi-Wan Kenobi was spying on. Dooku captured Obi-Wan, as well as his apprentice Anakin Skywalker and Senator Amidala. They were sent for execution, but a group of Jedi and an army of clones had come to rescue them, resulting in war.
Seeds of betrayalEdit
Thuvat managed to escape and returned to the base on Nar Shaddaa. Unfortunately for him, he did not know that there were others in the organization plotting to overthrow him, notably an assassin named Mecupa.
Capture of the DrewtonsEdit
- "Yesterday, we captured two Republic soldiers, both great contributors to the war."
- ―Bodotor to several Nockudumey terrorists[src]
Months later, the Nockudumey captured Lieutenant Burt Drewton and Captain Larry Drewton. Bodotor told Burt that the Nockudumey was not actually intended to be a terrorist organization by its founder, Revan, and that he himself was not a terrorist. Burt, of course, did not believe him at first, but his doubts were eventually weakened.
When Bodotor next arrived with Dem Nozah and a Mandalorian named Daklif Ordo in Larry's quarters, he found that Larry had been tortured by Mecupa, who had assassinated Drazil Drewton. Thuvat reprimanded him for going against his instructions, but before he could lecture him further, Daklif Ordo pointed a blaster to Dem Nozah's neck, saying that he would be the first, but not the last, of the Nockudumey he would kill.
Bodotor tried to tell him that they were not actually terrorists, but he was unable to because Mecupa was still present, who could use it, among many other things, against him. Mecupa himself dealt with Daklif, knocking him unconscious. With sarcasm, Bodotor told him that he would be promoted for saving Dem.
