“Ahsoka and Padme face off against a shape-shifting bounty hunter. ”

Note: the bounty hunter is Cato Parasitti.

“This Clawdite bounty hunter from the planet Zolan was one of the most lethal assassins in the galaxy. During the Clone Wars, she was involved in a plot with Cad Bane to steal a holocron from the Jedi Temple. Using holographic technology in addition to her shape changing abilities, she was able to infiltrate the Jedi Temple disguised as Ord Eniscence, a Jedi master murdered by Cad Bane. Eventually, Parasitti had to abandon that identity and assume the guise of Jedi Librarian Jocasta Nu. Eventually, padawan Ahsoka Tano saw through her disguise and defeated the Clawdite.” (source :
