Lux Bonteri was the son of Separatist Senator, Mina Bonteri. Having been told once that Jedi were good, during the Clone Wars, Lux no longer knew what to believe after the Republic killed his father in a surprise attack. After his mother became a prominent senator in the Separatist Congress, Bonteri moved with his parents to the Separatist capital of Raxus. Reaching adolescence in a time of war, Bonteri took on many idealistic views and hoped, like his mother, for a peaceful resolution to the devastating conflict. A year into the war, Bonteri's views on the Republic and the Jedi were significantly tested after he personally met Ahsoka Tano for the first time.
