Nightsisters - from Dathomir to Peridea

20 September 2023
The recent episode of "Ahsoka" Far Far, Away has brought to light intriguing revelations about the Nightsisters of Dathomir. 

Contrary to popular belief, these Force witches did not originate from the Star Wars galaxy where they were initially introduced. Instead, they hailed from Peridea, ruling over "The Great Witch Kingdom."

They tie into many elements of the show:

1. Thrawn's Return and Emotional Depth

Thrawn, a character known for his strategic brilliance and cold demeanor, has shown signs of homesickness in the recent episode.

This emotional depth adds layers to Thrawn's character, making him more relatable and complex. It raises questions about his past, his connections, and what he truly desires. His homesickness might hint at a deeper storyline that ties him to the Nightsisters or other elements of the Star Wars universe.

Thrawn's emotional state could be a result of his separation from his home or a consequence of his interactions with the Nightsisters. His potential connection with the Force witches might reveal more about his character's motivations and goals.

2. Troopers, Nightsister Magic, and Thrawn's Connection

The episode introduces "Night troopers," possibly influenced or controlled by Nightsister magic. Thrawn's guard, Enoch, and these troopers might have a deeper connection to the Nightsisters.

The use of Nightsister magic on Thrawn's troopers suggests a strategic alliance or a deeper bond between Thrawn and the Nightsisters. This alliance could provide Thrawn with a unique advantage in battles and political maneuvers.

Thrawn's interest in the Nightsisters might not be purely strategic. There could be personal reasons or past interactions that have led to this alliance. The extent and nature of Nightsister magic's influence on the troopers remain to be explored.

3. Witches, Greek Mythology, and Symbolism

An intriguing detail from the episode is the naming of the three witches after the Moirai, the Fates of Greek mythology.

Naming the witches after the Fates suggests that they hold significant power and influence over events. In Greek mythology, the Moirai controlled the destiny of mortals. Drawing this parallel, the Nightsisters could play a pivotal role in shaping the future of the Star Wars universe.

The use of Greek mythology might hint at the Nightsisters' roles in upcoming episodes. Their powers, combined with their connection to destiny, could influence major plot points and character arcs.

They certainly remind us of the Bene Gesserit order from Dune and their Missionaria Protectiva.

4. Ezra's Journey and the Star Wars Narrative

Ezra's return to the series brings with it a plethora of questions, especially considering the significant events in the Star Wars universe since his disappearance.

Ezra's processing of events like the destruction of Alderaan, the fall of the Emperor, and the rise of the New Republic will be crucial. His reactions and decisions will influence the series' direction and his relationships with other characters.

Speculation: Ezra's journey might intertwine with the Nightsisters and Thrawn. His unique perspective, combined with his Force abilities, could make him a key player in the unfolding narrative.
