Description: Agruss, also known as the "Keeper" was the head of the Kadavo slave processing facility on Kadavo. At the time that Obi-Wan Kenobi was imprisoned there, Agruss was an obese man confined to a hover chair. As with many slavers, he was a cruel creature; he did not hesitate to end the lives of several slaves in an attempt to break the morale of his captive Jedi.
When Anakin Skywalker led Republic forces on a rescue mission, Agruss tried to dispose of the remaining slaves by dumping them in the caldera. Most of the Togruta captives were saved by the Jedi at the last moment, and Agruss was impaled by Captain Rex with an electrostaff, killing him almost instantly.
An obese individual who used a repulsorchair to move about, Keeper Agruss was a male Zygerrian slaver who served the Zygerrian Slave Empire and, by extension, the Confederacy of Independent Systems. He oversaw the Kadavo slave processing facility, the center of slaving operations on the planet Kadavo. Around 21 BBY, the captured Togruta population of the planet Kiros was sent to Kadavo to undergo processing under Agruss's supervision. However, the disappearance of Kiros's residents had not escaped the notice of the Galactic Republic, and an investigation led three Jediâ€”Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tanoâ€”and Clone Captain CT-7567, "Rex," to the Zygerrian homeworld, where all were captured by Zygerrian forces.
While Skywalker and Tano remained captive on Zygerria, Kenobi, Rex, and Kiros Governor Roshti were sent to the processing hub on Kadavo. Agruss was on hand to greet Kenobi when he and his fellow captives arrived on the planet. While the Keeper expressed his excitement at having a Jedi at the processing facility, he immediately demonstrated his authority in an attempt to force Kenobi into submissionâ€”without warning, Agruss had several Togruta slaves dropped into the volcano above which the processing hub rested. He proclaimed that any attempt at disobedience on Kenobi's part would only result in the further suffering of others. Even Kenobi's attempts at helping the Togruta slaves backfired, causing them to avoid the Jedi or risk further pain.
Agruss, under the order of Count Dooku, prepared to execute Obi-Wan and Rex, but the men of the Republic overpowered the guards while Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano led an assault by clone forces to liberate the slaves. Under threat of capture or worse, Arguss tortured Togruta slaves to force the Republic troops to stop, then destroyed the control panels that would have enabled their rescue. At this moment, Obi-Wan took possession of his lightsaber and pointed it at the slavemaster, who scoffed and claimed that the moralistic Jedi would not kill an unarmed man. Rex, enraged by the treatment of his men, the slaves and the Jedi at the hands of Arguss, quipped that he was no Jedi and threw an electrostaff taken from a guard. Arguss was impaled by the weapon and, in distress and agony, he flew his repulsorchair into a bank of monitors and was electrocuted. He died almost immediately, and his corpse was incinerated when the labor processing hub was destroyed by Republic forces after their personnel were evacuated.
