Description: Ahsoka Tano, a Togruta female, was a Force-sensitive outcast from the Jedi Order who, after the Clone Wars, helped establish a network of various rebel cells against the Galactic Empire. 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, who nicknamed her "Snips" when she joined him 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 rebounded 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 Daughter, a Force wielder who personified the light side, 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 rebels—with her close friend, Lux Bonteri, among them—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 High Council's offer to rejoin the Order, instead departing in search of a new path. Tano briefly returned to lead Republic forces during the Siege of Mandalore and faced Maul and his allies. Order 66 was enacted shortly after the Sith Lord's capture and Tano alongside Rex, after freeing Rex from the control of Order 66, escaped the rest of her 501st division. Faking her death, she was forced into hiding.

After the Galactic Empire came to power, Tano went into hiding on Thabeska and Raada disguised as "Ashla." 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 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 the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader—who, unknown to her, was actually her former master, Anakin Skywalker—as well as the Imperial Inquisitors known as the Fifth Brother and the Seventh Sister, but it also gave her the chance to reunite with Rex. 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 portal into the World Between Worlds, a mystical plane 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 joined Sabine Wren in her quest to find the missing Bridger, who had disappeared during the Liberation of Lothal, and trained Wren in the ways of the Jedi until parting ways. Tano later journeyed to the city of Calodan on the forest planet Corvus looking for information on the location of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who had disappeared alongside Bridger, from Magistrate Morgan Elsbeth. Needing to rescue the city from Elsbeth's rule, she allied herself with the Mandalorian Din Djarin, who had been on a quest to bring the Force-sensitive youngling Grogu to the Jedi. After freeing Calodan, Tano refused to train Grogu and directed Djarin to the planet Tython instead. She later visited Luke Skywalker at his new Jedi Temple and, when Skywalker found Grogu in his care following a summons from the seeing stone, oversaw his training of the child temporarily.

Faced with Thrawn's return, Tano returned to Lothal and enlisted Wren's help once again in finding Bridger and the missing Grand Admiral. Decades after Tano began her search, her voice joined a multitude of Jedi spirits to guide the young Jedi Rey during the final battle of the First Order-Resistance War. Ahsoka inspired Rey to stand up to a resurrected Darth Sidious and destroy him once and for all.

Personality and traits
The fearless Force-sensitive
Ahsoka Tano was a Togruta female who had blue eyes, dark orange skin, brownish-grey lips, white facial markings, a slender build, and white lekku and montrals with blue stripes. The markings on her montrals were unique. During her early childhood, her trust in others was negatively impacted by a Jedi imposter who tried to enslave her, and the memory of the scorn her fellow villagers felt towards her remained with her until her trip to Ilum; upon trusting Master Yoda, she felt that trust came easier to her because she was again trusting her own instincts. The teachings and values of the Jedi Order became sacred to her, and she always sought to protect the lives of innocents.

As a teenager, Tano was snarky, cocky, stubborn, reckless, and impulsive, yet also brave, loyal, generous, and kind-hearted. The young Tano's emotions made her a perfect apprentice for Anakin Skywalker, with Grand Master Yoda himself recognizing that the two became "twice the trouble" after being paired together. She was very feisty and snippy, earning her the nickname "Snips" from her master. Like her master, she could at times become aggressive and willing to use terror or threats to get the answers she wanted. She had a tendency to follow her heart, which negatively impacted her path to Jedi knighthood. In her younger years, Tano's emotions inhibited her ability to make wise decisions, although she eventually gained the confidence to make the right ones, despite the great cost to her feelings. Beyond learning from both Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the teachings of Qui-Gon Jinn were indirectly passed down to Tano.

Over time, Tano became more mature and enlightened, with her experiences during the Clone Wars shaping her into someone who could control her emotions. 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. Throughout her time as a Jedi, she remained close with Plo Koon, who had brought her to the Jedi Temple, and saw him as an important mentor in her life. She also developed a friendships with Obi-Wan Kenobi and his second-in-command, Cody, as well as Senator Amidala through her master, Anakin Skywalker.

She respected Yoda despite often not understanding his advice, feeling he was almost always correct. 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 formed a strong bond with the clones, especially Captain Rex, and throughout her time as serving as their commander had learned a lot from them. She respected the clones as individuals and got along with them very well. Tano quickly began to enjoy their company, telling war stories with them as soon as she had any experience to speak on. When Tano found herself serving with the clones of the 501st again at the Siege of Mandalore, the clones continued to salute her out of respect and even repainted their helmets in her likeness to show how much she meant to them. When Order 66 turned the friends she had served with for years into enemies, Tano stood by her beliefs and told Rex to not kill them, determined to escape without directly killing her former comrades. When the ship crashed into the moon, Tano returned to the crash site to dig graves for each clone.

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 with the Martez sisters shortly before the end of the war, they noted that she still acted like a Jedi even though she was no longer a member of the order.

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. When Tano began to help people hurt by the Empire, she felt better about herself and as though she was fulfilling her training to do justice, feeling even better because her work was hurting the Empire that hurt her. She felt as though she had been a hero in her past and was one again, although she knew she needed to try to avoid tapping into her reckless nature. She decided to find a middle path to life when she became a rebel, not becoming a Jedi again but also not allowing her heart to harden when faced with the death of friends.

In addition to knowing friends would die in war, she knew it could change people, having spent her life as a Padawan fighting as a soldier instead of working as a peace keeper. Thus, she came to hate warfare, with her distaste for it making her notice that the fourteen year old Miara Larte had altered her behavior to avoid the Empire's patrols. In fact, she believed that, just because she had started to fight in the Clone Wars at that age, it was not a good example for Larte. Even as Imperial forces closed in, she found that meditation was easy for her, yet she also recognized she had nothing to say to the Empire's troops on Raada, not even using banter or taunts. Upon meeting Senator Organa for the second time, she noticed when he said his daughter took after her mother, yet she failed to answer the test she suspected the words were; Leia was secretly the daughter of Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala, but Tano elected to move past the subject, knowing Organa and her would need to trust each other despite each other's secrets.

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. 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 his former companion Sabine Wren in her quest to find him and bring him home.

Relationship with Anakin Skywalker
Tano's relationship with her master was tenuous to start. Skywalker had maintained that he would never take on a Padawan learner for fear that he would be "slowed down," so he was originally strongly opposed to Master Yoda's assigning of the young Ahsoka to him. Tano was offended by this, and deeply hurt, but she was eager to prove herself to her new teacher. Her enthusiasm often came at odds with her brash nature, a trait shared by Skywalker himself. In fact, in part due to her youthful impulsiveness and bravery, she was the perfect Padawan for Skywalker. The two would often butt heads, each believing that they knew better than the other. During their first mission together at the Battle of Christophsis, they developed demeaning nicknames for each other; Tano gave her master the diminutive title "Skyguy," while Skywalker returned the favor with the name "Snips," referring to Tano's snippy wit. Tano used the nickname Skyguy only because it annoyed Skywalker, although, as the war progressed, these nicknames would remain by changing into more playful terms of friendship.

For all their bickering, the two developed a close relationship during the Clone Wars. Skywalker reassured his Padawan that their meeting was no accident and that it was the will of the Force for her to train under him. Their rapport made it's way onto the battlefield, with the duo competing to see who could destroy the most droids during the Second Battle of Geonosis. The master and apprentice grew increasingly reliant on each other throughout the war, taking turns rescuing each other from Separatist forces and bounty hunters. After situations where she was nearly killed, she found that she could talk to her mentor to come to terms with it. Tano's naive outlook balanced with Skywalker's cynical approach. During her time on Mortis, Tano was killed by the Son and only resurrected after Skywalker pleaded with the Father to help save her. Later, after being captured by Trandoshan hunters, Tano credited her master's teachings as the one thing that allowed her to survive.

Skywalker grew protective of his Padawan, which Tano viewed as a lack of trust in her abilities. During the mission to Lola Sayu, Tano directly disobeyed Skywalker and joined his team, believing she should be the one to decide when to put her life in danger, not her master. Later, when Tano went on the run after being accused of murder, she realized that Skywalker was the only person who would believe in her innocence and begged him to trust that she would make the right decision. Ultimately, however, Tano left the Jedi Order, knowing that she had to discover more about herself without the help of her master. Skywalker confessed to his Padawan that he too understood the desire to leave the Order, and Tano, who had become aware of a connection between her master and Senator Amidala, but had never pushed the issue, assured him that she knew.

During her time away from the Order, Tano held her master in respect, regarding him as her own brother and later as a father figure. The lessons she had learned from him stayed with her in her exile; when asked by Trace Martez where she had learned to fly, the former Padawan credited her skills to "Skywalker Academy." Even still, when she was approached by the Nite Owls to join in the fight against Maul, Tano feared that she would become closer to the life and master she had left behind, but knew that she must go with them to help others. As she came face-to-face with Skywalker prior to the Siege of Mandalore, she did not indulge an emotional reunion and focused her attention on convincing the Jedi to assist the Mandalorians. In their final meeting as friends, Skywalker gifted Tano with her old lightsabers, now shining with blue blades, just as his own did. Before Skywalker left, Tano allowed her emotions to be shown, thanking him for his help and wishing him luck.

Vader's nemesis
During the Siege of Mandalore, Tano learned from Maul that Skywalker had been groomed for years to become the apprentice of Darth Sidious, but she refused to trust the Zabrak, defiantly believing that she knew her master. After Maul's capture, Tano attempted to speak with Skywalker but was unable to make contact with him. Later, she was able to feel his fall to the dark side through the Force, hearing him call out in anguish after attacking Mace Windu. She had no time to process these events before the execution of Order 66, forcing her to go into hiding. Although she did not know the fate of her master, she remembered him fondly, never forgetting the compassion and kindness Anakin offered to the galaxy.

In 14 BBY, Darth Sidious partnered Moff Wilhuff Tarkin and Darth Vader on a mission to investigate attacks on supply lines for the early Death Star. Sidious recalled Tarkin's prosecution at Ahsoka's trial as harming the relationship between Anakin Skywalker and then-Admiral Tarkin, and surmised that despite the Jedi's transformation into a Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader still harbored resentment against Tarkin for his treatment of his former Padawan.

During her time with the Spectres, Tano was stationed aboard the Phoenix Home when the Rebel fleet was attacked by the Sith Lord Darth Vader. During the battle, Tano sensed the anger and hatred emanating from the dark sider, and she was met with the realization that the individual behind Vader's mask was Skywalker. The incongruity of the two men being the same caused Tano to lose consciousness. In the aftermath of this discovery, Tano struggled to accept the truth. Although she maintained that she was unaware of the Sith Lord's identity, she secretly harbored feelings of grief and guilt, haunted by the idea that she could have helped her master in his time of need. During a mission to the Jedi Temple on Lothal, Tano was confronted by a vision of Skywalker that preyed upon these fears, blaming her for allowing Darth Vader to rise. Tano fought back against the vision, believing that there was still a way to reach her master.

Upon finally coming face-to-face with her former master once again on Malachor, Tano refused to believe that he and Vader were the same person; she was unable to reconcile the Sith Lord's vile nature with the kindness of the man she once knew. Although it pained her, Tano viewed Vader as the murderer of Anakin Skywalker and vowed to avenge her master's death, going against the Jedi teachings she had learned as a child. She battled him atop the Sith Temple, defending the Padawan Ezra Bridger. As the Temple began to collapse, Tano damaged Vader's mask, revealing the scorched face of Skywalker. The sight of her master forced her to pause. Feeling the guilt from leaving him years ago, Tano refused to leave Vader and continued to duel as her friends escaped. Before the debris of the ceiling could crush them both, Tano destroyed the floor beneath them, causing Vader to fall.

After Anakin's death
In 4 ABY, Anakin returned to the light side of the Force and sacrificed his own life to defeat Darth Sidious at the Battle of Endor. Following her master's death, Tano reflected on the impact of Anakin's decisions on the galaxy. Despite his flaws, she remembered him as "the best of us," a good man who fell victim to his own fears, and had favorable things to say about him. In 9 ABY, she refused to train the youngling Grogu because she recognized that the child's attachment to his father figure Din Djarin made him vulnerable to the same fears as Anakin. Tano could not bring herself to separate the infant from Djarin, vowing to not set him down the same self-destructive path as her old friend. However, she relented and told Djarin of Tython, a place where Grogu could reach out with the Force to contact other Jedi if he chose to.

Unsurprisingly, given her close relation to the Skywalker family, Tano met Anakin Skywalker's son Luke Skywalker at some point. In fact, when asked how she knew of his temple, she only answered that she was an old friend to the Skywalker family. Tano and Skywalker were on good terms. She even advised him in the training of Grogu, such as telling the young Skywalker to trust his instincts, and accepted his decision to train the youngling despite her own lack of desire to do so. She would even declare that being by Skywalker's side was the safest place in the galaxy for a young Force-sensitive like Grogu. While she still did not consider herself a Jedi, she had faith that Skywalker would create a "great school" and kept Djarin from seeing Grogu, as per Jedi rules on attachment. She favorably referenced Anakin to his son by noting they were similar and did not rule out seeing Luke again.

Powers and abilities
Ahsoka Tano made use of an unorthodox reverse grip during combat, but, at the insistence of her master, eventually began to utilize the standard grip in addition to her reverse grip. Tano was a particularly acrobatic lightsaber duelist who often utilized the Force to jump down on her opponents and to dodge lightsaber strikes. Although she was physically smaller than many of her foes, she proved to be a skilled duelist, wielding one and eventually two lightsabers.

At the beginning of her apprenticeship under Skywalker, Tano's combat skills were already quite considerable given that she defeated three IG-100 MagnaGuards single-handedly during her first mission. Later, Tano temporarily held her ground against the skilled Sith assassin Asajj Ventress and the Jedi hunter General Grievous after only a very short time training under Skywalker, although she was forced to run away from Grievous a short time into their confrontation. Her skills in lightsaber combat developed over time, and she began to favor using a variant of Form V in battle like her master, although Offee was certain she would be skilled at Form VI as well.

During the Clone Wars, Tano became a practitioner of Jar'Kai, wielding a yellowish-green shoto lightsaber in addition to her standard lightsaber. However, Tano occasionally utilized only her main lightsaber, such as when she dueled Skywalker on Mortis while under the dark side influence of the Son. Nevertheless, Tano more commonly utilized Jar'Kai, particularly when facing multiple opponents such as when she engaged the much more experienced Skywalker and Kenobi on Mortis. 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 overwhelmed her.

Around two years after her first duel with Grievous, Tano proved during their encounter on Florrum that her skills in lightsaber combat had improved vastly as she held her own against all four of Grievous's lightsabers, whereas previously she only lasted a short time when he was using only two lightsabers. Instead of fleeing after exchanging only a few blows, Tano held her ground and gave the Younglings time to escape before escaping with them. By the time of the Siege of Mandalore, Tano demonstrated highly advanced skills in lightsaber combat as evidenced by her prolonged duel with the powerful former Sith Lord Maul. Although Maul successfully disarmed Tano at the conclusion of their duel, she turned Maul's own attack against him in order to defeat him nonetheless.

Throughout the Clone War, Tano showed adeptness with deflecting blaster shots, particularly during Order 66, where she survived in a prolonged battle against her own men. Even in extremely close-quarter fighting, she was able to defend herself despite being surrounded by multiple troopers. Thanks to her training, she knew she could fight while blinded, yet she recognized needing to do that and fight without lightsabers would be a challenge. She was also skilled enough to fight without lightsabers, defeating the Sixth Brother, who was wielding a lightsaber, with only the Force.

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 easily defeated two Imperial Inquisitors at once and even deactivated the double-bladed lightsaber of the Seventh Sister with her bare hands. During the mission to Malachor, Tano again proved capable of fighting several Inquisitors at once and even disarmed the Fifth Brother and destroyed his lightsaber. During the same mission, Tano again proved capable of dueling to a stalemate with the former Sith Lord Maul before breaking off the fight to rescue Ezra Bridger. Shortly afterward, Tano engaged in an intense duel with Darth Vader, and although she ultimately lost, she proved capable of putting up a much more impressive fight against him than either Jarrus or Bridger were previously able to.

Force powers
Gifted with raw Force skill, Tano at first was only skilled at sensing the intentions and emotions of those around her, although she was able to advance in more skills once her training began. She was noted by her master to possess advanced abilities. At the beginning of her apprenticeship, Tano was capable of telekinetic feats as evidenced 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 strongly pushed Ventress and flung her back some distance in order to save the life of Luminara Unduli. By the end of the Clone Wars, Tano's telekinetic abilities advanced to the point that she was able to hold Maul aloft high above the city of Sundari and could use the Force to prevent a small starship from taking off. During Order 66, she was able to use the Force to guide her two lightsabers in a circle to cut an escape path for her and Rex. Tano later proved able to create a powerful protective Force barrier that was capable of temporarily holding back fiery dark side energies conjured by Darth Sidious.

Tano also had a strong ability to sense things in the Force, feeling 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. Tano would sometimes use a Force choke, despite it being a dark side Force power, but relied on it mostly to temporarily fend off an enemy. She used this method against a Trandoshan hunter on Wasskah, prompting her companion Kalifa to use it as well. However, when Kalifa did not let go and began to threaten to kill the hunter, Tano convinced her to let the Trandoshan go, saying it was not the Jedi way to kill out of anger.

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. She frequently used her acrobatic prowess during lightsaber combat, using front flips, back flips, and somersaults to avoid enemy attacks. During a duel against General Grievous, she vaulted herself on top of the cyborg general before springing off his back and escaping. Ultimately, thanks to her skill in the Force, she was never weaponless, as she could always call upon its power.

Tano also experienced Force visions and dreams. She used the Force to heal two corrupted kyber crystals that had been "bled red" and restored 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.

Tano also demonstrated the ability to sense the thoughts and feelings of others. When she met Grogu, Tano was able to sense his thoughts to such a precise degree that she was able to deduce his name and that he had been trained as a Jedi youngling at the Temple on Coruscant.

Other abilities
In addition to her Force powers and lightsaber combat skills, Tano was a talented pilot and also displayed skill as a war strategist by leading an attack that penetrated a Separatist blockade on Ryloth. During the Clone Wars, Tano passed on some of her flight knowledge to Senator Amidala, instructing her in starfighter combat. Due to her piloting skills, Tano found work as a courier for the Fardi clan while on the run from the Empire. She believed her skill in flying came from being trained by Anakin Skywalker, whom she considered the best pilot in the galaxy.

Tano displayed skill in hand-to-hand combat, as she easily overpowered 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. 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 killed the hunters Dar and his father, Garnac, by only using hand-to-hand combat and her Force powers.

Tano had a considerable knowledge of mechanics, which she had learned from her master. She used 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 understood Shyriiwook, as demonstrated by her translations for Chewbacca while captured on Wasskah. Tano later used her skills as a mechanic as her occupation after Order 66 and the fall of the Republic, repairing starships and threshers while hiding on Thabeska and Raada. Tano assembled her new twin lightsabers from scrap metal parts she had acquired from the Fardis.

During their mission to Malachor, Tano was able to read some words in Ur-Kittât, the ancient Sith language.

Equipment
Weapons
Ahsoka Tano owned two different pairs of lightsabers. She originally built her first lightsaber, which had a silver cylindrical hilt and a green blade, before becoming Anakin Skywalker's Padawan at the Battle of Christophsis. She wielded this lightsaber by itself for some time, before constructing a shoto lightsaber with a matching hilt and a yellow-green blade to accompany it upon taking up Jar'Kai. Both sabers had kyber crystals from the sacred planet of Ilum. Tano wielded both lightsabers in battle until her departure from the Jedi Order, upon which the weapons fell into the care of her former master Skywalker. While they were in his custody, Skywalker tinkered with them to improve them, which led to the sabers having blue blades when he returned them to Tano before the start of the Siege of Mandalore. Tano would later abandon the sabers on a moon after the issuing of Order 66 in order to fake her death to the Empire.

Over a year after the Clone Wars, Tano constructed a new pair of lightsabers, these ones with white blades, during the evacuation of Raada. The weapons initially had rough handles made of pieces of scrap Tano had acquired on her journeys, although she later rebuilt the hilts to be more functional and decorative. The kyber crystals within, as well as their mountings, came from the lightsaber of the Inquisitor Sixth Brother, whom Tano had defeated on Raada. Tano found the crystals familiar, and speculated they had been looted from the Jedi Temple after the Order's fall. After claiming the crystals, she purified them of the taint of the dark side until they shone white before assembling the weapons with scrap materials she had collected. These white lightsabers continued to serve her during the early rebellion, as she used them in battle against multiple Inquisitors, as well as Darth Vader.

During her time on Thabeska in the first year of the Empire, Tano also owned a unidentified blaster model which she used against Stormtroopers while escaping the planet of Thabeska. She destroyed it in order to provide a diversion for her escape. When her starship was captured by Chardri Tage and Tamsin, agents of Bail Organa, after her second departure from Thabeska, Tano knocked them out with a pair of bastons she had selected from the ship's weapons box.

Attire
During her time as a Padawan, Tano flew two different Jedi starfighters. At Ryloth and Umbara, Tano flew her own Delta-7B Aethersprite-class light interceptor. Later, while fighting in the defense of the planet Cato Neimoidia, she piloted a newer Eta-2 Actis-class light interceptor, in what would be her last battle before leaving the Jedi Order. Both starfighters sported dark red paint jobs with a white Jedi symbol over the top of it, and were co-piloted by her personal astromech droid, R7-A7.

Tano often flew missions with Anakin Skywalker in the Corellian G9 Rigger-class light freighter Twilight in the earlier stages of the Clone Wars, including at the Battle of Teth, the Battle of Abregado, the Mission to Skytop Station, and the Mission to Mustafar.

After her departure from the Jedi, Tano purchased a Joben T-85 speeder bike that was so prone to breaking down, Trace Martez dubbed it "Trash" when asked to name it. Tano left the bike with the Martez sisters at their repair shop when she left to search for Maul with Bo-Katan Kryze, saying that she would come back for it.

Upon her first departure from Thabeska, Tano stole a small and unremarkable freighter from the Fardi clan, which she used to travel around before and during the occupation of Raada, as well as when she returned to the Fardis. Tano flew an A-wing starfighter on missions during the early rebellion, including to Takobo. Following the battle of Endor, Tano traveled to Lothal in a T-6 shuttle to meet her friend Sabine Wren.

Outfits
Typical garb
When she initially became a Padawan, Tano wore a dark red bandeau top and skirt with white tights, along with dark red boots and fingerless gloves, as well as a purple sash. Tano later changed to wearing a dark red backless dress at the same time as she built her second lightsaber, this time with grey tights with diamond-shaped cut-outs and armbands with diamond shapes on her upper arms. She also wore a beaded headdress with a Padawan braid made of silka beads behind her right front lekku; after a ceremony on Coruscant, Master Yoda granted her an extension to the braid. The braid was taken away from her on two occasions: once briefly when she was captured by Cad Bane during the Battle of Devaron, and the other when she was expelled from the Jedi after being framed for treason. She was offered the braid back after her name was cleared, but chose to leave the Order instead. Ahsoka also had a wrist-mounted comlink but she had to destroy it to lay low while being on the run.

After surviving Order 66, she donned a hood that covered her face and montrals to obscure her identity. During her time on Thabeska and Raada, Tano wore a nondescript outfit, the only clothing she owned at the time. It was occasionally accompanied by hoods that concealed her face, with fellow Togruta Selda giving her a new one that fit her recently grown montrals better. She also owned a disused weapons belt that she put to use again upon constructing her second pair of lightsabers, and was given a backpack on Raada that didn't rub against her lekku.

When Tano met the Spectres after the naval action at Mustafar, she wore a grey dress with grey-and-brown armor plating on her chest and skirt, along with grey detached sleeves and forearm armor, as well as fingerless gloves. The outfit also had armored boots.

While operating on the planet Corvus during the New Republic Era, Tano wore sleeveless dark blue robes and a large belt from which she hung her lightsabers, as well as a pair of silver vambraces and arm wrappings on her forearms. Tano draped a dark cloak over these clothes during her assault on Calodan. This cloak hid her amid the smog of Corvus and also doubled as a poncho. Although Din Djarin incinerated this cloak upon meeting the Togruta, she replaced it not long after with a similar covering.

Specialized clothing
During the boarding of Cad Bane's flagship in the Devaron system, Tano wore a dark red vacuum-sealed bodysuit and space helmet. When she participated in the Battle of Mon Cala, Tano wore a grey-and-red scuba suit, with a face mask that allowed her to breathe but left her montrals and lekku exposed to the water. During the Mission to Zygerria, undercover as a slave, Tano wore a turquoise outfit with gold jewelry and sandals, initially covered with a grey-purple body-covering robe. Tano also owned a reddish-grey winter coat lined with white fur, which she wore on cold planets such as Carlac and Ilum.

During her time wandering Coruscant after leaving the Order, Tano wore a light blue mechanic's jumpsuit, along with a brown headpiece that went over her montrals and between her lekku and had a grey raised diamond on the front. She also carried a brown satchel. After being recruited by Bo-Katan Kryze and her resistance group to help pursue Maul, Tano was given a new combat outfit consisting of a blue-and-grey dress with a short skirt, blue tights, and grey boots, as well as forearm armor and fingerless gloves. The outfit also had Mandalorian beskar plating.

Vehicle weapons should be vehicle blasters - a Dexterity skill


30/Oct/2023 23:16:37 Posted by Hellstormer1

Technically you're right.

But, doesn't it seem weird that Vehicle Blasters is under Dex, and Starship Gunnery is under Mech?

And doesn't Vehicle Weapons sound better as a more general umbrella term? Not just for "blasters", but covering anything from blasters to .50 caliber machine guns? As far as operating them, shooting these weapons, repairing them and understanding their underlying functions is a different story and would possibly need different Repair skills, but it doesn't take much understanding to flick off a safety, cock a weapon, point and shoot it.
