On Coruscant Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano have been ordered by Master Yoda to search for Senator Amidala who has been kidnapped prior to an important Senate speech. Believing that she is still on Coruscant, Anakin dismisses his Padawan from assisting him in this search telling her to monitor communications.
Fearful for his wife's safety, Anakin travels deep beneath the levels of the Galactic Senate to Coruscant's undercity, where he begins his search using some rather unorthodox Jedi methods. He soon learns that she is being held by a notorious gang of street-pirates-for-hire known as The Burning Rancors. It isn't long before he infiltrates the gang's hideout and wastes no time getting past the various security measures including motion detecting laser canons, a spike pit and numbers of thug guards. A short time later he discovers the prison cell holding his wife but is surprised to find two Senator Amidala's being held captive. It turns out that both "Senators" are in fact Padmé's decoys, Sabé and Eirtaé, who explain to Anakin that the real Senator is safe and well in a secure location.
The following day when Senator Amidala gives her speech to the Galactic Senate, Obi-Wan fills in the details: the Jedi Council had learned of a Separatist plot to kidnap the Senator and so used Padmé's decoys and Anakin's search to flush out the villains.

This story occurs between 22 and 19 years before the Battle of Yavin.
