Description: Marrok was a mysterious Force-sensitive humanoid warrior and mercenary who once served in the Inquisitorius of the Galactic Empire. After the Imperial Era, the former Inquisitor was hired by the Nightsister Morgan Elsbeth. During his time in Morgan Elsbeth's forces, Marrok worked with other Force-sensitive mercenariesâ€”former General Baylan Skoll of the Jedi Order, and his apprentice Shin Hati.
Around the year 9 ABY of the New Republic Era, Marrok aided Elsbeth in her quest to find Grand Admiral Thrawn. The former Inquisitor engaged Ahsoka Tano, a former Jedi Padawan, in a lightsaber duel during a mission on the planet Corellia. They confronted each other once more on Seatos, where the former Jedi hunter was struck down by Tano's blade. Despite Marrok's fall, Tano and her Padawan Sabine Wren failed to prevent Elsbeth's journey to the distant galaxy where Thrawn was exiled.
Marrok was a humanoid Inquisitorâ€”a Jedi hunterâ€”during the reign of the Galactic Empire. With a few exceptions,the Sith Lord Darth Sidious ordered the execution of all Jedi by the end of the Clone Wars in 19 BBY. Whilst highly effective, the Great Jedi Purge did not eliminate every member of the Jedi Order outright. Sidious deployed the Inquisitorius as a result, turning the Jedi who fell to the dark side of the Force against other Jedi who survived Order 66.
As an Inquisitor, Marrok carried out his organization's directive to hunt and destroy the Jedi for the Empire and the Sith. Through the Inquisitorius' efforts the number of Jedi survivors decreased over the course of Sidious' reign as Galactic Emperor. However, as a result of their own success, the Inquisitors were deemed obsolete by Sidious who viewed them as an expendable force. The Empire ultimately fell to the New Republic after the deaths of Sidious and his Sith apprentice, Darth Vader, during the Galactic Civil War.
Morgan Elsbeth's mercenary
Marrok was active during the New Republic Era; around 9 ABY, the former Inquisitor was hired as a mercenary by Morgan Elsbeth, a Nightsister of Dathomir who plotted to liberate Grand Admiral Thrawn from his exile in a faraway galaxy. Marrok worked alongside the former Jedi General Baylan Skoll and his apprentice Shin Hati, both of whom were, like Marrok, Force-sensitive mercenaries in Morgan Elsbeth's forces. Elsbeth sought to acquire a star map which contained the location of Peridea, a planet located in the galaxy where Thrawn was believed to be.
Accompanied by Marrok, Skoll, and Hati, Elsebeth tracked the map to the ruins of a Nightsister stronghold on Arcana. After arriving, Marrok and Skoll searched the nearby area. Upon returning to Elsbeth, Skoll suggested that it had either been taken already by the former Jedi Ahsoka Tano, or vaporised in the explosion that had occurred. Elsbeth responded that Tanos apprentice Sabine Wren was in possession of it, before ordering Skoll to send Hati to Lothal to retrieve it. Marrok watched as Elsbeth walked away. Skoll explained the situation and mission to Hati, who questioned Elsbeths intentions, before the latter walked off to journey to Lothal. Marrok then approached Skoll, before the two followed Elsbeth.
Duel on Corellia
Whilst Hati retrieved the star map from Tano's former apprentice, the Mandalorian Sabine Wren on Lothal, Marrok was sent on a mission to Corellia to steal a Super Star Destroyer's hyperdrive core for Elsbeth's hyperspace transport ring, the Eye of Sion. Ahsoka Tano and General Hera Syndulla tried to prevent the hyperdrive's theft, forcing Marrok to confront Tano directly while Elsbeth's forces absconded with the hyperdrive unit on Transport CT-O5. Marrok fought against the former Jedi using his red double-bladed spinning lightsaber against Ahsoka Tano's white lightsabers. An HK-87 assassin droid fought alongside Marrok until the droid was destroyed by Tano. Marrok continued the lightsaber duel despite the loss of his assassin droid, activating the second plasma blade of his lightsaber.
Marrok disengaged from their duel after his allies succeeded in leaving the Corellian shipyard with the hyperdrive core. By then, Hati had arrived with her master's Eta-class shuttle to retrieve Marrok. She used the shuttle's weapons to slow Tano down, allowing Marrok to reach the vessel before the Jedi could catch up to him.
Pursuit above Seatos
With Syndulla's help, Tano and Wren tracked the transport to the Denab system. Elsbeth dispatched a starfighter squadron led by Hati and Marrok to destroy Tano's T-6 shuttle. Although a few of their scout guards were killed during the dogfight in space, Tano's starship was damaged and forced to land on the planet Seatos.
Defeat in the forest
With the Eye of Sion in the process of downloading the star map's coordinates to Peridea, Elsbeth and Skoll dispatched their scout guards into a forest on Seatos where Tano and Wren had landed their shuttle. Knowing that the guards would not survive for long against a Jedi, Skoll ordered Hati to confront Tano and her Mandalorian apprentice. Marrok accompanied Hati into the forest where they obstructed Tano and Wren's path to the star map. While Wren and Hati fought, Tano and Marrok ignited their lightsabers and paced in a circle before engaging. Following an exchange of strikes, Marrok spun his blades across the circular hilt, preparing for an attack. As the two stepped forward, Tano slashed a large cut through Marrok's armor. A cloud of dark green mist erupted from the wound followed by a piercing shriek as Marrok's armor fell to the ground.
Personality and traits
Marrok was a mysterious warrior who once hunted Jedi in service to the Galactic Empire. After the Empire's fall, the ex-Inquisitor became a hired mercenary who carried out "dark deeds" for Morgan Elsbeth. Marrok followed his orders and traveled to where he was sent; Baylan Skoll was confident in Marrok's ability to complete his task, having vouched for him to Elsbeth. Marrok also complied with Shin Hati's orders while serving under her command in the Denab system. As a warrior, Marrok challenged Ahsoka Tano to a duel on two occasions, first with the help of an assassin droid on Corellia, and then alone on Seatos, where he ultimately lost to the former Jedi. Marrok's body was completely encased by his armor, with a green mist exploding out of the slice in the armor caused by Tano's lightsaber.
Powers and abilities
Marrok was Force-sensitive and skilled in lightsaber combat, able to fight Ahsoka Tano on even footing. The former Inquisitor possessed Force powers such as telekinesis, which Marrok used when he pulled his lightsaber back to his hand after throwing it at Tano. He also was an adept pilot, capable of navigating through a swarm of purrgil. As an Inquisitor, Marrok was experienced in hunting Jedi.
Marrok's lightsaber was a double-bladed spinning lightsaber, also known as an Inquisitor lightsaber, that featured red plasma blades on either end of its circular hilt. The Inquisitor lightsaber was specifically designed to increase the wielder's lethality in combat. While similar in design to Darth Maul's double-bladed lightsaber, the lightsaber used by Marrok and other Inquisitors featured an emitter ring that could rotate the blades around the hilt at a high speed.
The former Inquisitor still wielded his red-bladed lightsaber after becoming a mercenary. While dueling with Tano, Marrok switched between the use of his lightsaber's single-blade and the double-blade, and adjusted his fighting style accordingly. He also made use of its design by rotating the blades of his lightsaber during his first and second duel with Tano. In addition, Marrok wore full-body battle armor that completely encased his body, complete with a face-concealing helmet and a black cape, which he discarded in battle. However, the armor was in a battered condition by the time of the New Republic.
Marrok's Fiend fighter was a starfighter that the former Inquisitor used as his vehicle during his time as a mercenary in Elsbeth's forces. It was the same model as Shin Hati's Fiend. During their attack on Tano's T-6 shuttle in the Denab system, Marrok piloted his starfighter as a member of Hati's squadron.
