In a season two story arc of The Clone Wars television series, the Galactic Republic fears Duchess Satine Kryze is secretly building an army to aid the Separatists and sends Obi-Wan Kenobi to investigate Mandalore. Satine reassures him that the local militant group Death Watch is a small group based on Concordia, Mandalore's moon, that will soon be eliminated. Obi-Wan's investigation uncovers that Pre Vizsla, the governor of Concordia, leads Death Watch. However, he escapes. Death Watch seeks to depose Satine and assume control of Mandalore. With aid from Separatists and Sith lords Count Dooku and Darth Sidious, Death Watch will push the Senate to send peacekeeping troopers to Mandalore; Death Watch will appear as saviors against Republic invasion and seize Mandalore through popular support. Though Satine insists Death Watch is no threat to the Republic, a doctored recording and Death Watch's attempts to assassinate Satine push the Senate to approve an invasion of Mandalore. Once Satine proves the recording is altered, the order is rescinded.
