The battle is going badly for the Republic on Jabiim. Separatist forces are launching their final strike - and Republic forces are in retreat. Only a handful of Padawans - whose Masters have been killed in battle - stand between the Republic forces and the approaching Separatists with their Pollux A-Series Assassin Droids. The Padawans decide to fight the Separatists - giving the Republic forces time to escape. Anakin chooses to join them in their brave yet futile last stand - but fate has other plans for young Skywalker.
