Profile: Who is Ashoka Tano in Star Wars?

12 April 2023
Ahsoka Tano is a fictional character from the Star Wars franchise, introduced in the 2008 animated film and subsequent television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. She is a Togruta female, who served as a Jedi Padawan under the tutelage of Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars. After being falsely accused of a crime, she left the Jedi Order and later became a leader in the Rebellion against the Galactic Empire.

She's pretty cool and a fan favourite.

Physical Appearance:

Ahsoka is a Togruta, a humanoid species with distinctive head-tails called "montrals" and "lekku." Her montrals are striped in white and blue, and her lekku are white. She has yellow-green eyes, and her skin is a shade of reddish-brown. 

Ahsoka is about 1.6 meters tall. So she's taller than Tom Cruise.

Ahsoka is known for her bravery, loyalty, and strong sense of justice. She is fiercely independent and unafraid to stand up for what she believes in, even if it means going against her superiors. She is also compassionate and empathetic towards others, often putting their needs before her own.

Early Life:

Ahsoka was born on the planet Shili and was discovered by Jedi Master Plo Koon at a young age. She was taken to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant, where she began her training as a Jedi Padawan. Ahsoka was assigned to Anakin Skywalker as his apprentice, and the two formed a close bond throughout the Clone Wars.

Role during the Clone Wars:

Ahsoka served as a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic during the Clone Wars. She fought in many battles and became known for her skill with a lightsaber and her tactical prowess. Ahsoka also helped to uncover a conspiracy within the Jedi Order known as the "Jedi Temple bombing" and was instrumental in stopping the plot.

Leaving the Jedi Order:

During the war, Ahsoka was accused of a crime she did not commit and was expelled from the Jedi Order. Although she was eventually cleared of all charges, the incident left a lasting impact on her, and she chose not to return to the Order.

Joining the Rebellion:

After leaving the Jedi Order, Ahsoka became disillusioned with the war and the Republic. She went into hiding, but was eventually recruited by the Rebellion to help fight against the Galactic Empire.


After the Rebellion, Ahsoka continued to fight against the remnants of the Empire. She also helped to train a new generation of Jedi, including Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus. Ahsoka was also involved in the search for Ezra Bridger, who had disappeared with Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Powers and Abilities:

Ahsoka is a skilled Jedi, with impressive physical abilities and mastery of the Force. She is known for her dual-wielding lightsabers, which she can use to devastating effect in combat. Ahsoka also has a strong connection to the Force, allowing her to use it to sense the emotions and intentions of others.
