Zam Wessel was a bounty hunter from Zolan. Like other Clawdites, Wessell was a shape-shifter, though Zam was much more skilled than most others, being able to mimic the appearance of almost any species for an indefinite amount of time. On several occassions, Wessell worked with fellow bounty hunter Jango Fett, and developed a close friendship with Fett's son. Wessel was known to favored the KYD-21 blaster pistol, and owned a personal airspeeder and assassin droid. Wessel was eventually shot by Jango Fett with a toxic dart, due to her being captured after being chased through Coruscant by Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker, and beginning to divulge information to them about Fett.
