Series: Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Season 3, Episode 13
Original Air Date: January 14, 2011
The big winner is the subtly-named Savage Opress. Savage distinguished himself from the other candidates by being protective of his younger brother, Feral. In true Dark side fashion, this devotion is ultimately used to test his loyalty to his new master. Once Asajj gets him back to the Nightsisters' abbey, they use their powers to bulk him up. His emergence from this transformation is highly reminiscent of the birth of Lurtz, the first of the Uruk-hai created in the film version of The Fellowship of the Ring.
Savage is voiced by Clancy Brown, born Clarence J. Brown III on January 5, 1959 in Urbana, Ohio. His mother was a professional classical musician. Both his father and grandfather were Congressmen so he spent much of his childhood in Washington, DC. He graduated from St. Albans School, then went on to Northwestern University.
Despite what his characters would lead one to believe, he is apparently a very nice guy, active in numerous charities. He and his wife Jeanne Johnson have been married since 1993. They have two children, a boy and a girl.
