Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker and his Padawan Ahsoka Tano have attended a Rancor fight on Coruscant in an attempt to discover a traitor who has stolen valuable Republic weapons data. Aware that the fight is highly illegal, the pair do not wish to draw attention to themselves and so assume inconspicuous positions where Anakin can monitor the crowds. It doesn't take the Jedi Knight long to locate the traitor Raice Liq of the Banking Clan receiving a datacard and both Jedi descend upon the traitor's location.
However, Raice spots the pair as they make their way through the crowded stands and alerts both the crowd and organisers to the Jedi's presence. Now required to force their way through a hostile audience, the Jedi get separated and just as Anakin is about to apprehend Raice, Ahsoka is pushed from the stands onto the arena's floor and the awaiting jaws of two angry rancors.
With ignited lightsaber Ahsoka leaps through the air over the back of the first rancor but is caught mid-air in the claws of the second. With his Padawan looking to become a snack for the rancors, Anakin allows Raice to escape and leaps from the stands onto the arena floor. However Raice, seizing his chance for escape, is distracted by the Jedi's predicament and runs headlong into a service droid, knocking himself unconscious.
As the excited crowd cheer on the rancors, Anakin
charges the beasts and quickly discovers that their thick hides are too strong to be cut by his lightsaber. With Ahsoka fighting for her very life, Anakin tries a new tactic and using the Force to exert his will he attempts to calm the minds of the rancors. The animals are very susceptible to Anakin's strong will and release his Padawan. They also allow the two Jedi to ride on their backs and are led towards the audience stands and Raice's last known position.
Very quickly the stunned crowd begin to flee the arena when Anakin uses the Force to trip the force barrier protecting them from the arena pit. As Raice regains conscious he awakens to find himself hemmed in by the two rancors and surrenders to the two Jedi.

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