Ahsoka - Is Morgan Elsbeth a Nightsister

Is Morgan Elsbeth a Nightsister in Ahsoka? Star Wars is back on our small screens, and the early signs for Ahsoka are very positive indeed. It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet for the most devoted Star Wars fans.

One of the aspects of Star Wars lore being brought to the surface, along with the continued adventures of Ahsoka Tano, is the existence of the Nightsisters of Dathomir. Fans of The Clone Wars, one of the best animated series on Disney Plus, will already be familiar with this order of witches, who gave us some of the best Star Wars villains in animated form.

They got a name-check in the first episode of Ahsoka, and you likely have a big question: is Morgan Elsbeth a Nightsister in Ahsoka? Well, let’s dive into the story of some of the best Star Wars characters to find out if they’re back to wield their magick again as part of the Ahsoka cast.

Is Morgan Elsbeth a Nightsister in Ahsoka?

Yes, in Ahsoka episode 8, Morgan Elsbeth officially became a Nightsister after she received the Blade of Talzin and completed her initiation into the coven.

From the start of the series, it was always hinted that Elsbeth would be a Nightsister though. In the first episode, she revealed herself to be a descendant of the Nightsisters of Dathomir. Throughout the series, she has shown that she has access to some of the magick we’ve come to expect from the Nightsisters since they first showed how formidable they were during the Clone Wars before Count Dooku and General Grievous wiped them out.

However, let’s set facts straight: Elsbeth isn’t a full Nightsister for long. In Ahsoka episode 8, she is defeated by the titular hero and is ultimately used as a tool by Grand Admiral Thrawn. Although she had access to a powerful weapon (The Blade of Talzin), let’s be honest, she was still just initiated and wasn’t prepared to face our hero. In the end, her death gave Thrawn the time he needed to escape from Peridea.
