Aurra Sing’s only film appearance is a quick one-shot in The Phantom Menace. There, she is calmly and casually watching the Boonta Eve podrace. But The Clone Wars showed Aurra’s true character: an absolutely ruthless assassin.

Aurra has no shades of gray. She has no qualms about killing adults or children. She works with Hutts. And she mentored the most feared and beloved bounty hunter in the original trilogy, Boba Fett. She even helped him in his attempts to kill Mace Windu, who beheaded Boba’s father Jango in Attack of the Clones.

Not only is Aurra a skilled bounty hunter, she is fearsome to behold. Her spidery fingers, chalk-white skin and the evil gleam in her eyes make her look like a witch straight out of a Grimm fairytale. And she would likely take that comparison as a compliment.

Aurra Sing’s fate remains undetermined, as she survived The Clone Wars. She was once Hondo Ohnaka’s girlfriend, so perhaps the pirate will reintroduce her in Star Wars Rebels. We hope she shows up again because this fierce, scary woman is a rare example of a true female Star Wars villain.
