Dreadtech Android eXterminators are clones crated grown to adulthood to
fight during the Clone Wars. Their origins are still shrouded in
mystery, although it is known that neither the Republic or the Separatists
created the Dreadtechs. The Dreadtechs were cloned from Jedi Masters
to fight against the Jedi with three different batches of twenty six
made. The first batch, the Omega, where all identical and female
as it was assumed that females would be easier to control. When
one of the clones stared to show Jedi abilities their Clone Master tried
to destroy them but they escaped. The Dreadtechs, now with there own
thoughts and feeling, fled and scattered throughout the galaxy.
Some forty years later
Cassandra Lane, now calling herself DAX, with total memory loss and a
brain chip to control her found herself working for a crime lord as his
chief bodyguard. It was here that she uncounted the Wildcats who
had a bounty on her master. DAX almost defeated the whole team by
herself, but was almost killed by the Coda Warrior Savant. Before
Savant struck the killing blow she had a vision through The Force that
this human cyborg was important to not only the future but her own
personal future. It was well she stayed her hand, and instead took
her prisoner. The Wildcats were captured by the crime lord all but
for Savant. Savant was not only a powerful force user but also a
healer. She found the chip controlling DAX and removed it, freeing
her. With DAX's tactics and Savants fighting skill they freed the
Wildcats and took the crime lord prisoner collecting the one
million credit bounty on him. Dare, the then leader of the Wildcats,
with Savants encouragement, asked DAX to join the Bounty Hunter
Guild. She did.
Two years later the
Wildcats had become the most successful team of Bounty Hunters in the
Mid Rim territories. DAX and Savant now lovers had become inseparable,
but as the team became more famous they came to the attention of the
Empire and soon were working for them full time. Even though Savant was
a powerful force user she was not a Jedi but two other members of the
team were. It soon became difficult for the team to hide so many force
users from Empire's Jedi hunters. The Empire gave the team a lot of
missions forcing the team to spit up to cover them all but had agreed to
meet up every six months on Alderaan. The force users of the team
would remain hidden until they were needed on Alderaan but as the team
spent more and more time with the Imperils they came to see how much
they were evil and made plans to escape. Dare, DAX and two other members
Ashara and the Vampire Jedi Kracus (called Shadow by the rest of the
team) were on a hunt for the first time for a Rebel team on Sluis Van
but when they got there the rebels had already been captured by the ISB
agents Lira Vex and Valkyrie, It was here that the news of Alderaans
destruction reached the four members of the Wildcats.
The Rebels team, led
by Lt. Laura Mers, were about to be executed when DAX shot dead the
Imperial officer in command. Believing that Savant and the rest of
the Wildcats were all killed on Alderaan she continued shooting, killing
all the Stormtroopers. The four members escaped Sluis Van with Lt. Mers
and the two members of her team to the Rebel HQ. Dare was offered a rank
in the Rebel Alliance, as he had been leader of the Wildcats, but Dare,
having just lost his Guild and his friends, refused and gave the rank to
It was not long
before DAX became a captain and was part of the group that brought
General Madine over to the Rebels. It was on the way back from this
mission that they ran into Savant and seven other members of the
Wildcats that they believed dead. Sixteen members of the Wildcats
had been on Alderaan when it was destroyed, but Savant had been on
another mission, she herself believing DAX had been killed on Alderaan.
The remaining Wildcats all joined the Rebellion.
DAX, now a major, was
reassigned to the Elrood sector. It was here that DAX encountered Landra
Lane. Landra was another Dreadtech, identical to Dax, but was
suffering from split personalities. Even though Savant could not
heal Landra she did manage to allow her to live with some control
allowing her to be useful to the team. It was from Landra that DAX
learned of her history and real name, Cassandra, and that DAX was what
they all were, DREADTECH ANDROIDS EXTERMINATORS. They were
clones. They could be killed but could never grow old and die.
With the help of
Savant and her friends DAX accepted who and what she was and even
started to call her self Cassandra Lane.
Cassandra is now a
Brigadier General and is the highest ranking rebel officer in the Elrood
Sector. Her command goes all the way from Elrood across the Rimma
Trade Route to Tapani.
However, it was when
DAX crossed paths with the mad Imperial Captain Caligula that her
troubles really started!
