Parts of the Ahsoka premiere had Baylan Skoll (Ray Stevenson) and Shin Hati (Ivanna Sakho) tracking down and freeing Morgan Elsbeth (Diana Lee Inosanto). Morgan Elsbeth has been in custody of the new Republic since confronting Ahsoka in The Mandalorian Season 2. As the three dark Force users navigate the galaxy in search of the map that can lead to Grand Admiral Thrawn (Lars Mikkelsen), it is revealed that Morgan Elsbeth is actually a member of the Nightsisters of Dathomir, which gives her unique abilities such as seeing and hearing glimpses of Thrawn.
Who Are The Nightsisters of Dathomir?
The Nightsisters of Dathomir were originally created by Dave Wolverton for the 1994 novel Star Wars: The Courtship of Princess Leia. The Nightsisters are a faction of mystic Dathomirian sorceresses who have a connection to the Dark Side. The way they fit into the current Star Wars canon is that the Nightsisters’ leader, Mother Talzin, was the mother of Darth Maul. She pushed him into becoming Darth Maul’s apprentice. This led to conflict involving Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress and eventually Sidious wiping out nearly all the Nightsisters.
What is Star Wars: Ahsoka About?
