While on his way to his home on the third moon of Vassek, the droid General Grievous, had visions of his past. Grievous revealed that he was one a Kaleesh warrior that wanted war. The drums of conflict were beating his heart. The fire of conquest raged through his veines. His lungs breathed air filled with enemies turned to ashes. It was there where he thrived. He had toppled nations. He had slain kings. He had murdered legends. His name was feared by warriors, and cursed by widows. But those were just dreams to General Grievous. Dreams of a past that continued to fade. Grievous believed he was a failure. He believed that the bitter blood he tasted, was his own. Grievous wanted to feel young again. And the only place he found that, was in war. But the troops he commanded were not warriors of his past. They were not the warriors of his dreams. Grievous continued to dream as he drifted in space in his personal starfighter, Soulless One. He was still thinking, when a B1 Battle droid interrupted his thoughts to report that Count Dooku had been trying to contact him. Grievous ignored the droid and continued drifting in space. The Battle Droid, however, continued calling his name. Grievous continued to ignore and contined heading for the third moon of Vassek.
