Description: Ahsoka Tano, nicknamed "Snips" by her Master and known as "Ashla" after the Clone Wars, was a Jedi Padawan who, after the conflict, helped establish a network of various rebel cells against the Galactic Empire. A Togruta female, Tano was discovered on her homeworld of Shili by Jedi Master Plo Koon, who brought her to the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to receive Jedi training. Following the outbreak of the Clone Wars, Jedi Grand Master Yoda assigned the young Tano to be the Padawan learner of Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker, whom she joined at the Battle of Christophsis. Whereas Tano was eager to prove herself, Skywalker had a reputation for recklessness, and they had a rather difficult start as Master and apprentice. Yet, they worked together to rescue Rotta, the son of crime lord Jabba Desilijic Tiure, and returned Rotta to his father, thus facilitating a crucial alliance between the Hutt Clan and the Galactic Republic.
As a commander in the Grand Army of the Republic, Tano found a mentor in Clone Captain Rex of the 501st Legion, with whom she and Skywalker collaborated to lead frontline campaigns against the Confederacy of Independent Systems. In her first command position at the Battle of Ryloth, Tano disobeyed orders and lost her entire squadron of pilots, but she managed to rebound and helped secure a victory at Ryloth. Her assignments pitted her against a variety of opponents, from General Grievous and Sith apprentice Asajj Ventress to bounty hunters such as Cad Bane and Aurra Sing. Over time, she matured into a respected leader, contributing to key Republic victories like the Second Battle of Geonosis and the Battle of Mon Cala. She even died during a series of events on Mortis, but the Force wielder known as the Daughter sacrificed herself to bring Tano back to life.
Tano gained much experience on and beyond the war front, leading a group of Jedi younglings to revolt against their Trandoshan captors, helping rescue a colony of Togruta from enslavement by the Zygerrian Slave Empire, and serving as an advisor to the Onderon rebelsâ€”with her close friend, Lux Bonteri, among themâ€”as they liberated their world from the Confederacy. In a stark turn of events, Tano was framed for the bombing of the Jedi Temple hangar and other homicides, and she escaped into the Coruscant underworld to clear her name. Though she formed an unlikely alliance with Asajj Ventress, she was detained by Republic forces and was consequently barred from the Jedi Order. Ultimately, Skywalker uncovered the true culprit, Tano's friend and fellow Padawan Barriss Offee, and prevented his former apprentice from being convicted of sedition. Nevertheless, the ordeal dislodged Tano's faith in the Jedi. She refused the Jedi Council's offer to rejoin the Order, instead departing in search of a new path.
After the Galactic Empire came to power, Tano went into hiding on Thabeska and Raada. Following the evacuation of Raada, Tano joined Senator Bail Organa's growing rebel movement. She became the manager of his intelligence network and adopted the codename "Fulcrum." As Fulcrum, Tano provided intelligence to various rebel factions including Hera Syndulla's Spectres rebel cell. Tano took a particular interest in Syndulla's rebels because one of their members, a former Jedi named Kanan Jarrus, had begun to train his own Padawan, Ezra Bridger. In addition, Tano's efforts against the Empire brought her into contact with Skywalker, who by then had become the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader, as well as the Imperial Inquisitors known as the Fifth Brother and the Seventh Sister. Following the mission to Malachor, Tano became lost to the rubble and shadows of the Sith temple and was believed by many including Jarrus and Bridger to have perished during a duel with Darth Vader.
However, Tano was unexpectedly saved from Vader's wrath by a future Ezra Bridger, who pulled her through a time portal into the world between worlds, a dimension of the Force connecting all time and space. After a confrontation with Darth Sidious, who desired access to the dimension, Tano returned to her time, promising Bridger that she would find him once she returned. After the end of the Galactic Civil War, Tano returned to a freed Lothal and joined Sabine Wren in her quest to find a missing Bridger, who had disappeared during the liberation of Lothal.
Personality and traits
Ahsoka Tano was a Togruta female who had blue eyes, dark orange skin, brownish-grey lips, white facial markings, and white Lekku and montrals with blue stripes. As a teenager, Tano was snarky, cocky, stubborn, reckless and impulsive, yet loyal, brave, generous and kind-hearted. She was very feisty and snippy, which earned her the nickname "Snips" from her master, Anakin Skywalker. Like her master, she was known to be very aggressive, eager for battle and willing to use terror or threats to get the answers she wanted.
Over time, Tano became more mature and enlightened, her experiences during the Clone Wars shaping her. She had her victories, her failures, and her losses yet strove through them all, as she felt it was her duty as a Jedi to help restore peace and prosperity to the Republic. Her constant travels and experiences made her more worldly than most people her age, and often she was surprised by the various events and people she came across during the Clone Wars.
However, when Tano was framed for murder and treason, she was horrified when the Jedi Order cast her out and all but condemned her to a Republic military tribunal, and came very close to being sentenced to death. When Skywalker unveiled the true culprit, Tano was shocked to see it was her friend Barriss Offee. Though conflicted, she ultimately rejected the opportunity to become a Jedi again, having lost faith in the Order for not standing by her.
Tano was a confident and moralistic person, and a firm defender of the innocent. This carried on even after she left the Order, as she joined Bail Organa's rebellion to restore liberty and democracy to the people oppressed by the Empire. Tano also felt pity and compassion for the Inquisitor known as the Sixth Brother despite slaying him in combat. She regarded the Sixth Brother as a victim whose potential for good had been twisted and turned to the dark side. After befriending the Force-sensitive Hedala Fardi, Tano became concerned with protecting Force-sensitive children from being captured by the Empire's Inquisitors.
During her time running from the Empire, Tano continued to suffer from grief over the loss of her friends and guilt over the fact that she wasn't there to help them. During her time on Raada, Tano was unsure about making new friends, largely due to the emotional pain inflicted by Offee's betrayal. Despite everything Offee had done, Tano believed that while she was wrong about "a lot of things," she did have a point about the Jedi and the Republic, and later expressed her belief that if had they truly listened to her, they might have been able to stop Darth Sidious before it was too late.
As a rebel Informant code-named "Fulcrum," Tano worked indirectly with various rebel cells, always with her face hidden and her voice disguised, and became somewhat pragmatic as she advised Hera Syndulla to cease searching for Kanan Jarrus to protect her crew, especially Ezra Bridger. This may suggest she developed a more discreet nature and decided overall to put the many before the few.
Even after revealing her true identity to the rebels, her dealing in secret as Fulcrum appeared to have remained, as Tano told Jarrus and Bridger that she had no knowledge about the Sith Lord they encountered, as she herself was having trouble coming to terms with the horrific realization of what had become of her former Jedi Master.
Those feelings recently made themselves apparent when she was refused to help open the Lothal Jedi Temple, stating she was no longer a Jedi for leaving the Order. While inside the temple, she was haunted by a phantom of her master, who angrily scolded Tano for leaving him to a fate worse than death. Tano, shedding tears and welling up with grief, lashed out at the illusion, and then wept when she saw no one there, but now realized her fears were trueâ€”her former master was a murderous Sith Lord.
Upon finally coming face-to-face with her former master once again, Tano refused to believe he and Vader were the same person, stating Skywalker "could never be as vile as Vader," to which Vader responding by claiming he had destroyed Skywalker. Tano then swore to avenge Skywalker's "death," something against her Jedi training and morals, but affirmed she was not a Jedi and proceeded to duel Vader, only to find that he was indeed her former friend and mentor. Feeling guilty over leaving him before, Tano offered Vader compassion, refusing to leave him behind again, only to be rebuffed and sentenced to death. Despite Vader's ruthlessness and power, Tano bravely continued the fight.
When Tano was saved and reunited with Bridger in the world between worlds, she was saddened to learn of the fate of Jarrus, but disturbed by Bridger's idea of saving Jarrus from dying. Drawing from her own experience of being unable to save her master, Tano successfully convinced Bridger to let Jarrus go, and they parted ways, promising to find each other again as Tano went back to Malachor and resumed her journey.
After the Battle of Endor, Tano sought to keep her promise to Bridger and joined Sabine Wren in her quest to find him and bring him home.
Powers and abilities
Ahsoka Tano was very skilled in lightsaber combat for someone of her age. She made use of the unorthodox reverse grip during combat, but she utilized the standard grip at the insistence of her master. When she was made a Padawan by Yoda, she was already proficient in Form V and capable of doing so even in less than ideal positions. Tano's combat skills were clearly quite considerable, as she was able to defeat three IG-100 MagnaGuards single handedly and at least temporarily hold her ground against the skilled assassin Asajj Ventress and the Jedi hunter General Grievous.
At some point during the Clone Wars, Tano began to learn Jar'Kai, wielding a yellowish-green bladed Shoto lightsaber with a hilt that matched with her original lightsaber. She still sometimes used only her main lightsaber, such as when she dueled Skywalker on Mortis before Kenobi arrived, but would use Jar'Kai when facing multiple opponents and was able to hold her own against both Skywalker and Kenobi on Mortis, even though both of her opponents were more experienced warriors than she was. During her second encounter with Grievous, Tano showed that her skills had improved vastly, as she was able to hold off all four of Grievous's lightsabers and survive for the second time, whereas previously she only lasted a short time when Grievous was only using two lightsabers.
Whilst fleeing from clones after being framed for murder, Tano lost her second lightsaber and was forced to use only her main lightsaber to fight Barriss Offee. Her duel against Offee showed that she had become too reliant on her second lightsaber, something she had in common with Asajj Ventress, and though she did put up a considerable fight, Offee ultimately proved too powerful for her.
Sixteen years after her departure from the Jedi Order, Tano's skill in lightsaber combat had greatly improved to the point of mastery. During a skirmish at Hammertown, she was able to defeat two Imperial Inquisitors at once and even managed to deactivate the double-bladed lightsaber of the Seventh Sister with her bare hands. During the mission to Malachor, Tano was also able to duel evenly with former Sith Lord Maul before breaking off the fight to rescue Ezra. Afterwards, she engaged Darth Vader himself and was able, during the first portion of their duel, to hold her own for several minutes. However the second portion of their duel, occurring after Ahsoka damaged Vader's mask, lasted under a minute before Vader struck what would have been a killing blow.
Tano possessed a strong connection to the Force, and often performing Force-enhanced jumps and other acrobatic feats. Although Tano's Force powers required more training, she was capable of performing extensive telekinetic feats, as seen during the Battle of Christophsis, where she pulled down a large wall in order to save Skywalker from a group of retail droids. In another instance, Tano was able to deliver a strong push at Ventress and flung her back far away, saving the life of Luminara Unduli.
Tano also had a strong ability to sense things in the Force, able to feel the presence of Plo Koon after his fleet was destroyed by the Malevolence and the presences of the children who were kidnapped by Cad Bane. She also eventually learned how to perform mind tricks. In addition, Tano's Force powers enabled her to leap to incredible heights. She used this to her advantage when leaping into the Phantom in order to escape two Inquisitors.
Tano also experienced Force visions and dreams. She was able to use the Force to heal two corrupted kyber crystals that had been "bled red" and restore them to their natural white color. These crystals became part of her new twin lightsabers. Tano was also able to use the Force to amplify her touch. On one occasion, she used this Force power to shatter the hilt of the Sixth Brother's double-bladed spinning lightsaber.
In addition to her Force powers and lightsaber combat skills, Tano was also a talented pilot and also displayed potential as a skilled war strategist by leading an attack that penetrated a Separatist blockade on Ryloth. Due to her piloting skills, Tano found work as a courier for the Fardi clan while on the run from the Empire.
Tano also displayed skill in hand to hand combat as she was able to easily overpower Cad Bane before dropping her guard and being incapacitated by the bounty hunter. She later used her hand to hand combat skills on Mandalore by single handedly defeating a group of the Mandalorian Secret Service and later holding off several guards and subduing Prime Minister Almec despite being handcuffed at the time. However, on that occasion, she armed herself with one of the guards' shields, which she used to fend them off and defend herself from a stun gun. While she was a prisoner of Trandoshan hunters, Tano was able to kill the hunters Dar, and his father, Garnac, by only using hand to hand combat and her Force powers.
Tano also showed a considerable knowledge of mechanics which she had learned from her Master. She was able to use her mechanical skills to contact Skywalker and save her and Barriss Offee's lives when they were trapped under a destroyed droid factory on Geonosis. She also knew how to repair vehicles. While on Mortis, she repaired the shuttle that she, Kenobi and Skywalker had crashed on the planet. Tano had the ability to understand Shyriiwook, as demonstrated by her translations for Chewbacca while captured on Wasskah. Tano later put her skills as a mechanic to great use repairing starships and threshers while hiding on Thabeska and Raada. Tano was able to assemble her new twin lightsabers from scrap metal parts she had acquired from the Fardis.

Euh, 'green' paired lightsabers? you mean white now... At the same, I think her clothing style now includes a lightweight body armour...
Nevertheless, I was happy to see back our Snips back in the Canon Star Wars universe. It was one of my favs in Clone Wars...
