Question: How old is Asajj Ventress?
Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003)
Starring: Grey Griffin, James Arnold Taylor, Andre Sogliuzzo, Mat Lucas
Continuity mistake: The red-marked leader of the ARC Troopers sure goes through a rapid succession of field promotions and degradations. In Chapter III, he is addressed by Obi-Wan as a Sergeant; when Obi-Wan arrives at the Banking Clan's HQ in Chapter IX, he calls him Commander; and when Anakin returns from his duel with Asajj Ventress in Chapter XX, he is suddenly a Captain.
Chapter 13 - S2-E3
Captain Fordo: Fall back! Fall back! Fall back!
Yoda: Hold your positions! Hold your positions!
Chapter 20 - S2-E10
Trivia: Among the Jedi there is a human Padawan, who is called Sha'a Gi Zonks in several sources. According to Clone Wars director Genndy Tartakovsky, the character was inspired by the character Shaggy Rogers from the Scooby-Doo cartoons, resulting in a similar appearance and name pronunciation. Also, Zoinks was a favorite quote of Shaggy's.

Answer: Her date of birth is unrevealed. What little is known is that she was found as a child (precise age unknown) by a Jedi who crashlanded on her homeworld of Rattatak somewhere around 40BBY (precise year unknown). Realising her Force potential, he took her as his Padawan and trained her for some years, only to be cut down by a local warlord before he could finish, leaving her to seek vengeance on the warlords who had conspired against him, precipitating her fall to the Dark Side. It's difficult to determine her precise age from all this, but if we assume that she was ten when she was found, and that was in 40BBY, then Asajj would be 28 at the outbreak of the Clone Wars. So figure on anywhere in a range a few years either side of that.
