Captain Enoch from Star Wars: Ahsoka

20 September 2023

Captain Enoch made his debut in the sixth episode of the "Ahsoka" series on Disney+. This episode, titled “Far, Far Away,” not only introduced the Star Wars fandom to a new galaxy but also marked the live-action debut of iconic characters like Grand Admiral Thrawn and Ezra Bridger. Among these new introductions was Captain Enoch, a unique stormtrooper with a gold face plate, portrayed by Wes Chatham.

Captain Enoch from Star Wars: Ahsoka

Captain Enoch is a stormtrooper who stands out due to his gold face plate. He was prominently featured leading a chant for Grand Admiral Thrawn, making him a significant presence in Thrawn's legion of Stormtroopers. The mystery surrounding Captain Enoch is whether the gold face is a mask or his actual face, and if he might be a robot.

Wes Chatham, known for his role in the Hunger Games franchise, plays Captain Enoch. However, the specifics of Captain Enoch's role in the Star Wars universe and his connection to Ahsoka remain speculative.

Night Troopers & Nightsisters

An intriguing aspect of Captain Enoch and his fellow troopers is their title as "Night Troopers." These troopers have bits of red cloth woven around their standard stormtrooper armor, hinting at a connection to the Nightsisters. The Nightsisters, Force witches from the planet Dathomir, are known for their dark magic, including the ability to resurrect the dead.

In the same episode, Nightsisters are shown aiding Thrawn on the new planet, Peridea. Given the Nightsisters' capabilities, there's speculation that Enoch and the Night Troopers might be undead warriors resurrected through the Nightsisters' dark magic.

Inspiration Behind Captain Enoch's Look

The gold face-like mask of Captain Enoch might have been inspired by George Lucas's earlier sci-fi film, THX-1138. In this movie, police officers wore polished chrome masks that bear a resemblance to Enoch's golden mask. If this connection holds, Captain Enoch's look could be a homage to Star Wars and Ahsoka Tano’s original creator (with Filoni), George Lucas.

As the series progresses, fans eagerly await more revelations about this enigmatic character.
