Ahsoka was discovered on Shili by Jedi Master Plo Koon at the young age of three and was raised at the Jedi Temple. Eventually, Yoda would be involved with assigning her to become Anakin's apprentice.
Despite only being a Padawan, Ahsoka showed great skill in battle. She had been able to hold her own, for a short time, against the numbers of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, such as Grievous and Asajj Ventress.
She was also very accomplished with ship repairs, starfighter piloting, and hand-to-hand combat. Even with her skills, Ahsoka still had much to learn about becoming a Jedi, as she sometimes tended to lash out in ways that are not befitting of a Jedi. These outbursts may have been because of her more aggressive Togrutan tendencies.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars (film)
- "You're reckless, little one. You never would've made it as Obi-Wan's Padawan...But you might make it as mine."
- ―Anakin takes Ahsoka as his Padawan
Tano was a talented student and was promoted to the rank of Padawan earlier than normal by Master Yoda. He assigned her to Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker in hopes that it would teach Skywalker a greater sense of responsibility.
The Jedi Council hoped that, as Tano became more independent, her Master would learn to let go of his problematic sense of attachment. They sent the Padawan to the planet Christophsis to join Skywalker, hoping to aid him in the current battle and pass on a message that Kenobi and Skywalker must return to the temple. Though it was presumed she would be Master Obi-Wan Kenobi's new Padawan, she revealed that she was assigned to Skywalker.
Unfortunately, Separatist General Whorm Loathsom had activated a deflector shield and had his droid army advance behind it, negating the use of cannons. Master Skywalker and his new Padawan tried to figure out how to get inside the shield and destroy the generator. They hid beneath a box and waited until the droids and tanks passed before they carefully sneaked in. Unfortunately, they bumped into a droideka. Tano was intent on fighting, but Skywalker insisted on running. He told her to stop, allowing the chance to slash at the rolling droid as it passed them. When they reached the generator, Tano accidentally tripped several sensors, alerting retail droids to their presence. Skywalker distracted the droids while Tano planted explosive charges on the generator. One of the droids approached her from behind, but she managed to slice it in half with her lightsaber.
The new weapon utilized by the Confederacy, The Malevolence, had destroyed countless ships of the Republic fleet, leaving no survivors. The Jedi Council sent Master Plo Koon to hunt and destroy the battleship. Unfortunately, Plo Koon's fleet was destroyed by the ship's massive ion cannon, leaving only Plo and several other clones alive in escape pods. Anakin and Ahsoka flew the Twilight to 'scout ahead.' When they arrived at the Abregado system, Ahsoka didn't know that her master wanted to rescue Master Plo Koon, so she was surprised when Anakin told her. As they were about to turn around, R2-D2 picked up a distress signal and they decided to continue searching.
Supreme Chancellor Palpatine contacted the two Jedi, ordering them to listen to the Jedi Council and rejoin the convoys. However, just as they were about to return to the fleet, Ahsoka sensed that Plo Koon was alive, then she took control of the ship to find Plo Koon. When she found Master Plo Koon and three clone troopers, she got them onto the ship. Plo informed Ahsoka and her master that the secret weapon used an ion cannon to disable the enemy ship and rendering the ship defense. At that point, the Malevolence passed by, forcing them to shut down all systems before it could detect them. However, they forgot to shut off the medical droid, TB-2. It was detected by the Malevolence, which responded by firing the ion cannon. The Twilight managed to escape the ion wave by jumping into hyperspace, taking the knowledge of the Separatist weapon with them.
Shadow of Malevolence
Shortly after, Anakin Skywalker planned a counterattack on the Malevolence with a squad of Y-Wing Starfighters known as Shadow Squadron. The Republic soon became aware that the Malevolence would target the Medical station. Ahsoka was a gunner of her master's ship. As Ahsoka and the others escaped the Nebula, the Malevolence arrived. When the strike team had taken several casualties, Ahsoka then suggested that they change the plan to the Shadow Squadron, destroying the ion canon of the Malevolence. Ahsoka and her master were aboard a medical station while Obi-Wan Kenobi pursued the fleeing Malevolence and waited for the next order.
Downfall of a Droid
After the Republic suffered a series of defeats at the hands of General Grievous, Ahsoka was commissioned to participate in the defense of the planet Bothawui, along with her Master and his battle group. She took command of the Republic ships aboard the Resolute and while her Master led the group of starfighters. While the Republic managed to repel Grievous's forces, Anakin's ship was destroyed during the battle, and R2-D2 was lost, but Anakin managed to recover.
Ahsoka encouraged the use of the replacement droid R3-S6, especially after she and her Master failed to recover R2-D2. Anakin mounted a mission to discover a listening post used by Grievous; however, due to the ineptitude of R3, he found himself in dire trouble. Fortunately, the timely intervention of Ahsoka and Captain Rex aboard the Twilight ensured that Skywalker escaped.
Duel of the Droids
Searching R2 and Separatist's listening post
Ahsoka and others aboard the Twilight, still searching for R2-D2, followed a signal that her master felt was from the missing astromech and arrived at Skytop Station, the Separatist listening post used by General Grievous.
Mission to Skytop Station
Upon arrival at the station, Kenobi gave the team orders to destroy it, regardless of whether or not they rescued R2. Ahsoka separated from her master to command the small clone task force to plant explosive charges and destroy the station's reactors, while Skywalker went to locate R2-D2. Ahsoka found herself face to face with General Grievous himself, who caught the group by surprise. After saving Captain Rex from a killing blow by Grievous, Ahsoka engaged the cyborg in a brief duel, luring him away from the clones. Although a Padawan, she distinguished herself by being one of the extreme few to face the cyborg and survive. She later discovered that R3 was a Separatist spy droid under the general's command.
After Grievous escaped and the Skytop Station was destroyed, Tano somewhat agreed with Kenobi's reprimand of Skywalker's attempt to save R2, to which he countered R2 was not merely a droid but an ally.
Cloak of Darkness
Later, Ahsoka was assigned to Luminara Unduli's ship to guard Trade Federation Viceroy, Nute Gunray, who had been captured on Rodia. Ahsoka threatened Gunray during his interrogation, earning a chastising from Unduli. When super battle droids boarded the ship, Ahsoka stayed at Gunray's cell while Unduli dealt with the droids.
Ahsoka faced Asajj Ventress when the dark assassin broke into the detention level to free Nute Gunray. However, Ahsoka was tricked and was locked in Gunray's cell. Unduli came to her rescue and insisted on chasing Asajj alone, despite Ahsoka's warning. Eventually, Ahsoka decided to help the Jedi Master and the two dueled Ventress together. Although the traitor, Captain Faro Argyus, and the Rattataki assassin successfully rescued Gunray, it was not a total loss because the Republic could track the ship. Ahsoka spoke with her Master, who told her to meet him at a rendezvous point, departed after saying goodbye to Unduli. She also briefed the Jedi Master Kit Fisto on the possible whereabouts of Gunray.
Ahsoka, along with Captain Rex and Obi-Wan Kenobi, set out to find Anakin, who was last seen dueling with the Sith Count Dooku. While Obi-Wan boarded Dooku's frigate and freed Anakin, Kenobi ordered Ahsoka to command the cruiser to open fire on Dooku's frigate. Ahsoka did, but Kenobi and Skywalker took a shuttle and went after Dooku's Solar Sailor, crash-landing on the planet Vanqor. Ahsoka and a couple of clone troopers took a shuttle down to the planet, where they freed the two Jedi from a cave. Ahsoka was unimpressed when she heard that Dooku escaped.
Ahsoka, alongside Anakin, were sent to the Quell system to help Aayla Secura, who was in the middle of a losing battle. Ahsoka, Anakin, Rex, and a couple of other troopers took gunships to Aayla's cruiser, the Liberty, but faced rocket battle droids. Anakin said he would rescue Aayla and her crew and jumped on a rocket droid and flew down to the cruiser. One rocket droid destroyed Ahsoka's gunship's cockpit, forcing the pilot to jump and be helped by Rex. Without any pilot, the gunship crashed into the ship. Ahsoka led the clones and met up with Anakin, Aayla, and Commander Bly. Anakin ordered a ship to dock on the Liberty and escape. The group headed towards the docking bay, but a fire started and starting blowing up the ship. Anakin used the Force on the group and sent them to safety, holding out the fire. The explosion sent the door flying and had hit Anakin, injuring him. Ahsoka quickly helped Anakin, and they were able to escape on the ship.
Unfortunately, a droid shot the cockpit, killing one pilot while they docked with Admiral Yularen's ship. The pilot's head hit the hyperdrive, and the crew had to detach and go into hyperspace. Then they discovered that the navicomputer had not calculated correctly, and they were about to crash into a star. They avoided the star, but they made a spectacular crash on the planet Maridun. After they set up a small camp, one of the troopers found a drawing carved in wood of a giant tree and had a being attacking a creature. They concluded there must be intelligent life on the planet. Aayla, Ahsoka, Bly, and some more clones searched for the beings with hopes they could heal Anakin. They set off and immediately ran into giant trees. Then some giant seed pods started falling from a tree, and the group nearly escaped with their lives.
They continued but were attacked by two native creatures, which were eventually warded off, but not without killing all the clones except Bly. By dawn, they reached a village of Lurmen and were greeted by chief Tee Wat Ka. They asked him for medical assistance, but he refused, saying his people had come here to escape the fighting and he feared helping the Jedi would pull them into the war. But, with Ahsoka's plea for help, Tee Wat Ka then agreed and sent his son, Wag Too, the village's healer, to go with them to heal Anakin.
The Blue Shadow Virus
Battle in Nuvo Vindi's laboratory
- "Rex and his men will be right behind you, Snips. We'll have your back"
- ―Anakin to Ahsoka before the attack on Dr. Vindi's laboratory
The Jedi Council later sent Ahsoka, along with Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi, to Naboo in response to intelligence that suggested that a Separatist bio-lab had been set up on the planet. When contact with Senator Amidala and Representative Jar Jar Binks, who had begun the search for the lab, was lost, her master sent Ahsoka along with the Gungan native Peppi Bow to locate them. While they searched the swamp where Jar Jar Binks and Senator Amidala disappeared, the two accidentally find a spy cam.
While hiding from the camera, Ahsoka contacted Anakin and Obi-wan, who instructed her to detonate a bomb in the south bunker to create a distraction. She levitated a thermal detonator using the Force and dropped it right on the hatch. She told Bow to stay outside the lab and stop anyone from leaving while she continued into the lab. Once inside, she acted as a distraction, drawing battle droids to her so that Skywalker would be free to rescue Senator Amidala and Jar Jar Binks, which he was able to do. Luckily, the Jedi were also able to capture Dr. Nuvo Vindi, the scientist in charge of the lab, and prevent him from releasing the deadly Blue Shadow Virus.
Mystery of a Thousand Moons
While Obi-Wan and her master prepared to transfer Vindi for trial, Ahsoka, Senator Amidala, and several clones went about further to secure the lab, only to discover that a vial of the virus was missing. Although they were able to sound the alarm, they were too late, and Dr. Vindi's assistant droid was able to detonate a bomb releasing the virus throughout the lab. Fortunately, Senator Amidala and Jar Jar Binks were in a safe room at the time and had avoided infection. Unfortunately, Ahsoka and the clones with her were not so lucky. Despite her deteriorating condition, Ahsoka aided Senator Amidala in ridding the lab of battle droids, during which Senator Amidala herself became infected by the virus. Moments before Ahsoka succumbed to the effects of the virus, her master and Master Kenobi returned with the antidote which they had acquired on the planet Iego, curing her, Senator Padmé Amidala, and the majority of the clones.
Storm Over Ryloth
Breaking the Blockade
- "I lost so many of my pilots."
"Take heart little one, that's the reality of command."
- ―Ahsoka and Anakin after the former commanded her first squadron
After Techno Union Foreman Emir Wat Tambor took control of the planet Ryloth and its inhabitants, the Jedi Council dispatched Anakin and Ahsoka to destroy the planet's blockade, clearing the way for the invasion forces led by Master Windu and Kenobi. Ahsoka, and her new droid, R7-A7, were leading a squadron for the first time. The squadron was the Blue Squadron, and Ahsoka was the Blue Leader. She led her squadron from the Resolute and proceeded to attack the incoming Vulture droids and managed to cut a clean path straight to the battleship. However, after Separatist reinforcements arrived, she disobeyed a direct order from Admiral Yularen and Anakin Skywalker to retreat. Vulture droids began to plunder the Resolute on suicidal runs, and she turned back but lost half of her squadron along the way.
After the Republic forces retreated, she was extremely shaken. Her master tried to comfort her, which was to no avail. Later, she found the injured Admiral Yularen unconscious in the medical bay and mournfully apologized for her failure. Master Skywalker received orders to continue with the plan despite their losses. Ahsoka, now adamant against taking command because of her earlier failure, questioned Skywalker's readiness, and Skywalker ordered her back to her quarters to "cool off." Later, alarms started to sound, and she found from a passerby clone trooper that the Defender had been ordered to evacuate.
Arriving in the hangar bay of the Resolute, she found that her Master had devised a plan to pilot the Defender alone and ram it into the lead control ship, thereby leaving out-maneuverable droids in charge of the blockade. Ahsoka was overwhelmed, now given even more pressure with the added responsibility of her Master's life, but before she could stop her Master, he left for the Defender and left her in charge of the remaining forces.
Ahsoka was hesitant about devising a plan to take out the remaining blockade. When she devised a plan to angle the hull of the Resolute toward the blockade, acting as a screen so the fighters could launch, the navigation officer of the Resolute was doubtful, but she received support from a recovered Admiral Yularen. After Anakin rammed the Defender into the lead control ship and its commander, Mar Tuuk fled, and the Resolute came out of hyperspace, and Ahsoka led fighters and bombers and successfully destroyed the remaining frigates in the blockade. Three Acclamator-class ships came out of hyperspace, the lead ship carrying Obi-Wan Kenobi and Mace Windu. Obi-wan conferred with Ahsoka, and she told him that they were clear for a ground assault; Master Kenobi was rather disapproving of Anakin Skywalker's reckless plan but was glad it had worked. She dispatched Rex to send a shuttle to pick up Skywalker's escape pod.
Liberty on Ryloth
Tactical droid TA-175 ordered the Hyena Droid Bombers to destroyed the Ryloth's capital. Ahsoka joined her master to destroy the Hyena Droid Bombers. She and her master completed their mission when they captured Wat Tambor. The Galactic Republic and the Twi'leks retook the capital.
First Battle of Felucia
- "Can't you see they're retreating?!"
"They're about to overrun you, Ahsoka, you just can't see it. Now follow orders and get in the ship!"
- ―Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker, during the retreat from Felucia
As the war raged to Felucia, the Confederacy of Independent Systems, led by General Grievous, invaded the planet. Jedi General Plo Koon, Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Anakin Skywalker, and Commander Ahsoka Tano led an assault to counter the Separatist threat. The Republic forces engaged the Confederate Navy above the planet and began to break up their advancement; however, waves of Vulture droids caused problems for the Republic group. Few clone trooper transports made it to the planet surface to aide Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. As battle droids continued to fire on the struggling clone troopers, General Plo Koon cleared the skies of Vulture droids inside his starfighter. Meanwhile, a Vulture droid fragment fell from the sky and landed on one of the Republic's AT-TE walkers.
Seeing that the Republic forces had lost much of its reinforcements, Obi-Wan Kenobi signaled for an immediate retreat; however, both Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker noticed that Ahsoka has been missing. Contacting her through his comlink, she revealed that she had engaged another group of battle droids six klicks east of the Jedi Masters' location. Obi-Wan told her that the Republic forces were retreating and that Ahsoka needed to return, which the Togruta Padawan denied and told him that she had broken through the Separatists' defense. However, her master and Obi-Wan landed their LAAT/i gunships in front of Ahsoka's Juggernaut Turbo Tank, which caused her to shout at Anakin Skywalker in dismay, then forced her to enter his gunship.
As the Republic forces onboard the LAAT/i gunships lifted above the ground, the forces within them witnessed Ahsoka's Turbo Tank's destruction and reinforcements, which made her finally realize her mistakes. After leaving Felucia, the Republic forces returned to Coruscant.
Anakin Skywalker takes Ahsoka to be an Archives guard, under the assistance of Jedi Librarian Jocasta Nu. After Anakin left, Nu took Ahsoka on a tour around the Archives. After giving the Padawan the authority to guard the Holocron Vaults, she greeted Jedi Master Ord Enisence. However, unbeknownst to her, a female Clawdite bounty hunter had taken the appearance of Enisence to infiltrate the Jedi Temple. Ahsoka began to bother the seemly Jedi, asking if he needed help. After she walked away, the bounty hunter uses a computer terminal to secretly provide Duros bounty hunter Cad Bane information about the Jedi Temple via comlink. As Cad Bane and his Techno-service droid, Todo 360, entered the Jedi Temple through a ventilation vent, Grand Master Yoda continued to feel the intruders through the Force and soon placed the temple on high alert. While the ongoing events escalated, the elder Jedi Librarian told Ahsoka to remain on guard while she went to notify everyone that the temple was on high alert.
Jocasta Nu first went to Enisence, but the bounty hunter punched Nu in the face, knocking her unconscious. Yoda contacted Ahsoka via comlink and alerted her of the danger. Worried, Ahsoka left the Archives main room and confronted Cato Parasitti, who had changed her appearance from Enisence to Jocasta. Cato engaged Ahsoka in a brief lightsaber duel inside the Archives main room but was no match for the Padawan, who quickly defeated the Clawdite, knocking her to the ground. Several Jedi consisting of Mace Windu, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Aayla Secura, and Kit Fisto arrived inside the Archives room. The group arrested the bounty hunter yet noticed that a Holocron was missing from the vault. Before the Jedi dismissed the captured bounty hunter, the latter revealed that Cad Bane was about to hunt Jedi Master Bolla Ropal to retrieve the Kyber memory crystal.
Cargo of Doom
Battle over Devaron
After leaving Coruscant onboard the Venator-class Star Destroyer, Resolute, Ahsoka, alongside her Master, went to the planet Devaron to help Jedi Master Bolla Ropal recover the Jedi Holocron that Bounty hunter Cad Bane had stolen. Above Devaron, Republic Star Destroyers engaged Bane's Munificent-class Star Frigates. After witnessing the location of Bane's frigate, Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka joined Rex and his men on the Resolute's hangar bay. After Rex revealed that they had no transports to deliver the troops to Bane's frigate, Admiral Yularen joined the group and offered his help. Anakin ordered the latter to activate a few AT-TE walkers near them; however, Yularen was not pleased with Anakin's decision. Determined to use deactivated AT-TE walkers, Anakin ignored the admiral's claim and soon activated them with Ahsoka, who claimed that her Master was a genius.
When Ahsoka and others land on Bane's ship, B1 battle droids engaged the group and were defeated by the Republic forces. Anakin Skywalker ordered his astromech droid, R2-D2, to open the main hatch, which allowed the group to enter the frigate. Upon entering, the group made their way into the bridge. They manage to capture the bridge, but they don't find Cad Bane or Bolla Ropal. Unfortunately, Bane had set up self-destruct, and then Ahsoka and others found master Bolla Ropal dead. The Republic force soon ventured through the ship, and R2-D2 spotted Cad Bane running through a hallway. They caught up to the bounty hunter; however, the latter soon released his battle droid force at the Jedi and clones.
Through his wrist gauntlet, the bounty hunter turned off the artificial gravity, which allowed Bane to have the advantage over the Jedi. Ahsoka ordered R2 to reactivate the gravity, and the droid complied. Bane escaped then Ahsoka chase him, but Cad Bane managed to capture her. Later Anakin arrived and destroyed three B1 Battle Droids and entered the room that Bane kept Ahsoka in. Seeing his Padawan in grave danger, Anakin began to fight the bounty hunter. However, Bane told the Jedi Knight that if he pressed a button on his gauntlet, she would be sucked out of an airlock. The mercenary gave Anakin the choice of sacrificing his Padawan while he killed him or open the Holocron. Although Ahsoka feared for her life, she bravely tried to persuade her master not to cooperate with the bounty hunter, thinking that killing Bane and retrieving the Holocron was more important than her own life. However, Anakin didn't feel the same way; he cared about Ahsoka more than he cared about the Holocron, so he chose to open the Holocron for the bounty hunter. He opened the Holocron, and Bane placed the stolen Kyber memory crystal within before holding up the now readable Holocron.
With Bane distracted, Anakin mentally retrieved both his lightsaber and Ahsoka's. Making quick work of Bane's two B2 super battle droid bodyguards, Skywalker noticed that Bane had opened the airlock, threatening Ahsoka's life. Skywalker's Force pushed a fragment of the droid at the ray shield control and saved Ahsoka, although Bane had escaped the room with the Holocron. Both Jedi exited the room and began to chase after the mercenary in retaliation. Ahsoka, who had realized that they needed to get off the ship, demanded her master not to chase after Bane and instead return to Rex and the clones, who were waiting for the Jedi in the frigate's hangar bay. Acknowledging her claim, both soon entered the hangar bay.
Noticing that Rex and his men had secured a shuttle, both ran toward it. Above it in the upper-deck level of the hangar, clone troopers Denal and Koho engaged Bane in a brief duel, which cost the lives of both clones. Bane, disguising himself as Denal, entered Anakin's getaway ship and remanded hidden within the clone trooper armor. Ahsoka, who believed that Bane had died, wanted to retrieve the seemingly fallen Holocron. However, Skywalker told her that there wasn't any time to do so because the frigate was tearing itself apart.
Children of the Force
Upon arriving at the Resolute, Bane, disguised as clone trooper Denal, made his way to V-19 Torrent to escape. Bane kicked Ahsoka. Bane managed to escape, and Anakin told Ahsoka to report to the Jedi Council.
Hunting Cad Bane & Rescue the Children
As Bane escaped, Ahsoka was aboard the Resolute waiting for a mission. Ahsoka was assigned to Naboo, preventing Bane from capture the children. To do this, Ahsoka laid a trap and managed to capture Bane. Anakin stole Cad Bane's ship and found that Bane had taken two other children to Mustafar. Ahsoka, alongside her master, went to Mustafar. When they tried to rescue the children, the Nanny Droids tried to stop them, but the two Jedi managed to help them and take them back to their homeworld.
Landing at Point Rain
Ahsoka and her master joined up with Obi-Wan Kenobi after the Battle of Dorin. Alongside Jedi Master Ki-Adi-Mundi, Commander Jet, Captain Rex, and Commander Cody lead the assault on the droid factory. Their gunship was launched to meet up with Obi-Wan Kenobi's team, but because of heavy fire, they were shot down, and the AT-TEs were destroyed, and all but a small band of Clone Troopers survived.
After losing many Clone Troopers and AT-TEs, Anakin and Ahsoka make their way to Obi-Wan Kenobi's forces. The droids and the Geonosians attack them; however, when they arrive at the Fortress, many droids and turrets fire at them, and they lose even more Clone Troopers. Anakin then tasked Ahsoka to destroy the Fortress by climbing to the hill and lay a grenade into the Fortress. They completed their mission, but when they found Jedi Ki-Adi-Mundi, they teamed up and made their way to Obi-Wan Kenobi. Ahsoka and Anakin were tasked to destroy the Droid Factory's shield generator, and they completed the mission.
The second phase of the battle involved Anakin Skywalker and Luminara Unduli engaging new advanced separatist tanks to act as a diversion while Ahsoka with Unduli's Padawan, Barriss Offee, completed their mission of destroying the droid foundry using the underground catacombs made by the Geonosians. The Padawans were followed by one of the Geonosians, who soon alerted Poggle of their presence. Poggle ordered the deactivation of the Padawan's detonators, which covered the entire droid foundry generator. While doing so, Poggle the Lesser also sent a squad of battle droids and super tanks to distract the Padawans.
After the two Jedi destroyed all of the droids, Ahsoka suggested using the super tank's weapons system to blow up the power generator since the Geonosians took the bombs. She contacted her master, telling him that they were trapped inside. After taking out the power generator, Ahsoka was able to help her master locate Barriss Offee and herself by hot-wiring a power cell from the tank. Anakin Skywalker and Luminara Unduli were able to locate the two in time and freed them from the rubble.
Ahsoka and Barriss Offee were assigned to lead a supply ship to the medical station. Since she was not able to sleep, Ahsoka decided to eat with Barriss. While eating, two clones named Edge and Ox attacked them because they were under the control of brain worms. The Padawans took out their lightsabers and defeated them. Then, Trap and another clone came to Ahsoka and Barriss Offee, asking them what was happening. The troopers said that they would keep an eye on Edge and Ox. After realizing what was going on in the ship, she and Barriss decided to split up, and Ahsoka went to talk to her master and Master Fisto. While investigating the ship, Barriss Offee walked into a trap laid by the infected Clone Troopers and was infected by the worm and then went after Ahsoka. Ahsoka escaped when Barriss Offee engaged her, and her master advised her that the parasites could be destroyed by cold. Ahsoka ruptured the coolant system aboard the ship but was then attacked again by her friend. Amid the duel, Barriss started to regain control of her mind and begged Ahsoka to kill her. Ahsoka refused to harm her due to her attachment to Barriss Offee and only killed the worm coming out of Barriss's mouth. Kit Fisto, Anakin, and reinforcements quickly arrived and told Ahsoka she had managed to stop the infection, though she remained conflicted about the choice she made. She recognized that the parasite could have spread further if she had failed, but her master reassured Ahsoka that she did the right thing by following her instincts to save as many lives as possible.
Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka were in the slums of Coruscant, searching for an arms dealer named Car Affa. They eventually arrived at the bar where he was located, and her master instructed her to stand guard outside if Car Affa were to escape. When patrons stormed out of the bar because of blaster shots and Anakin's lightsaber, She was caught in the middle of the hurried crowd, and her lightsaber was snatched by, unbeknownst to her at the time, Bannamu.
Ahsoka went to Jocasta Nu to help; Jocasta introduced the Padawan to Tera Sinube, a Jedi Master who possessed vast knowledge of Coruscant’s criminal underworld. After acquiring some information about the thief’s physiology, Sinube located Ahsoka’s thief in the archival database, a Patrolian named Bannamu. Although hesitant at first, fearing he might slow her down, she allowed Sinube to accompany her, searching for Bannamu. They were able to capture him, but Bannamu told them that he sold it to Cassie Cryar. When they found her, Ahsoka chased her but fell. Then Tera Sinube drove a BARC Speeder to aid her. They were able to capture Cryar and Ahsoka got her lightsaber back.
After the Destruction of the Felucia Medical Center, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano were sent to investigate. They crash land on Felucia, and they met with Bounty Hunters Sugi, Seripas, Embo, and Rumi Paramita. At first, the Jedi and bounty hunters were hostile towards each other, but then the village leader Casiss stopped them from killing each other.
After the pirates arrived, Ahsoka was present when Ohnaka arrived though she hadn't met him before. Obi-Wan Kenobi tried to get Hondo and the pirates to leave the village in peace, but the Weequay wanted to get his hands on the villager's spice harvest for profit. The pirates gave the villagers until morning to prepare the harvest before leaving the village and regrouping with the rest of the pirate forces.
The Jedi and the bounty hunters tried to train Felucians to fight. During their preparations, Ahsoka befriended Seripas, who wore armor to make him look larger and more intimidating than he was. She saved his life during the preparation for the pirate attack. He was cutting down a large fungus at the time and did not realize that it was too heavy for his suit to handle. Ahsoka was able to get him out of the way during the preparations. She then told him that just because he didn't look tough, it did not mean he could not be tough.
Along with the other Jedi and the bounty hunters, Ahsoka defended the village from the pirates, and eventually, they managed to defeat them, forcing them to retreat. Sugi then offered the Jedi a ride in her ship to the nearest Republic outpost, which they accepted.
R2 Come Home
On Coruscant, R2-D2 came and replayed Anakin Skywalker's message to several other Jedi. Plo Koon and Ahsoka made their way to Vanqor to help the two Jedi. After the mission, Mace Windu complimented R2 on his bravery.
When Boba Fett sent a hologram message showing that he had hostages, Ahsoka went with Master Plo Koon to track them down. Starting in the under levels of Coruscant, the pair had difficulty getting useful information due to Ahsoka's lack of subtlety.
After arriving at a small diner, Master Plo Koon told Ahsoka to stand back and remain subtle while questioning the barman. Wanting to be useful instead of standing around, she used her Togruta montrals to listen for anything useful, and after a while, she finally heard a conversation involving Aurra Sing. Getting caught while listening in, she and Master Plo Koon were forced to abandon subtlety to get out. After doing so, Plo chided Ahsoka for her unsubtle ways, but she told him that she overheard that Sing and Fett were on Florrum.
After arriving on Florrum, they received assurance from the pirate gang leader, Hondo Ohnaka, that he wasn't involved, nor would he interfere. After Plo briefly questioned Aurra Sing, Ahsoka cut off her head antenna and held her lightsaber to her throat. That didn't last long, and after a brief skirmish, Aurra ran off with Ahsoka at her heels. Arriving outside, Ahsoka took a speeder to chase after Aurra but would have been shot before she could if Hondo hadn't stopped his man.
After chasing Aurra Sing through many canyons, she received word from Master Plo Koon, after using Hondo to persuade Boba to talk, that the hostages were in the opposite direction. After freeing the hostages from Bossk, Aurra Sing made an escape attempt on Slave I but was unsuccessful thanks to Ahsoka's efforts. Afterward, she accompanied Master Plo Koon in bringing Boba Fett and Bossk back to Coruscant to face justice.
Sphere of Influence
- "Senator Amidala, Master Skywalker!"
"What is it, Ahsoka?"
"Someone has kidnapped Chairman N. Papanoida's daughters!"
- ―Ahsoka informs Anakin and Padmé
After the Blockade of Pantora and Chairman N. Papanoida's daughters were kidnapped, Ahsoka informed Anakin Skywalker and Padmé Amidala. But since the Jedi couldn't officially get involved, Ahsoka volunteered to go alone since Senator Riyo Chuchi was a good friend of hers. When she arrived at Chuchi's office, Chuchi introduced her and then informed the chairman that she would be helping in locating his daughters. Taking the news with welcome, the chairman assigned Ahsoka and Chuchi with a diplomatic visit to the Trade Federation, thinking that his daughters were on the ship blockading Pantora while he and his son followed their lead. When they arrived on the Federation ship, Chuchi announced to the administrator of a pending alliance between Pantora and the Confederacy of Independent Systems if it would lift the blockade. After being shown to their quarters, the Ahsoka and Riyo sneaked out and explored the ship, hoping to find the girls. When they made their way into a conference room, they hid under a table while listening to a conversation between the captain and the administrator involving the chairman's daughters. Chuchi nearly gave Ahsoka and herself away by gasping, forcing the pair to take new hiding spots, and Ahsoka used the Force to levitate her out of sight.
After avoiding discovery, the pair made their way to the detention level to find one of the girls. When they arrived, the guard wouldn't let them pass, so Ahsoka used a mind trick for the first time. The pair soon found one of the chairman's daughters but were discovered due to listening devices in the halls after dispatching a group of B2 Super Battle Droids. Ahsoka stood back and watched as Chuchi interrogated and then blackmailed the captain into compromise. The blockade was formally resolved by Lott Dod in the Senate later.
Corruption on Mandalore
After Duchess Satine Kryze requested Senator Amidala for a Jedi Knight, Master Yoda sent Ahsoka to aid Satine on Mandalore in an undercover mission to expose government corruption. Ahsoka arrived under the guise of being a teacher to Mandalorian students, including Satine's nephew Korkie. After Korkie and his friends discovered that someone had been holding out the food supply to boost the black market trade on Mandalore, Ahsoka soon discovered it was Prime Minister Almec, the second most powerful official behind the Duchess. After making that discovery, Ahsoka and the students went to present their discovery to Satine only to discover that she had been arrested by Almec and imprisoned under false charges of treason.
Ahsoka then came up with the plan to present the students to Almec as prisoners to discover Satine's location. Almec imprisoned the students but would not reveal Satine's whereabouts to Ahsoka, forcing her to alter her plan. After conversing with the students under the ruse of an interrogation, Ahsoka then used a mind trick to have a guard take her to the Duchess. Upon discovering Satine, Ahsoka attempted to free her, only to fall into a trap set by Almec. Almec captured Ahsoka and attempted to force Kryze into signing a confession for committing treason. Kryze refused, forcing Almec to torture her with a shock collar, followed by Korkie. Ahsoka, however, managed to free herself and capture Almec using the same shock collar he used on Satine. After his imprisonment, the Duchess revealed that she had planned all along for Ahsoka to discover the corruption in the Mandalorian government.
Mission to Alderaan
After the events on Mandalore, Ahsoka returned to Coruscant to report to the High Council of her mission. Ahsoka started to become plagued by visions of Aurra Sing and a potential assassination attempt during her stay. Asking Master Yoda for guidance on the subject, Yoda advised her to calm her mind, using her visions to see who would be assassinated. It was determined that Senator Amidala was Sing's target. Ahsoka went to Amidala to warn of the threat, finding out that Amidala was going to Alderaan at the request of Senator Bail Organa to speak on the Clone Wars. Seeing that Amidala was going to go despite the warning, Ahsoka insisted that she escort her to Alderaan as a part of her security detail, to which Amidala agreed. After arriving on Alderaan, Ahsoka had another vision of Aurra, leading her to believe that Amidala was in danger at that very moment. It was, however, a false alarm as Ahsoka was inexperienced in interpreting dreams.
Ahsoka would have another vision revealing the location of the assassination attempt to be the very room that Amidala was to speak in. Increasing the security, Amidala proceeds to speak at the gathering, during which time Sing attempted to assassinate Amidala. Ahsoka, sensing Sing was there, intervened and prevented the shot from being deadly and causing damage only to Amidala's left arm. After a short battle and a chase to catch the bounty hunter, Ahsoka lost her and was forced to return to the security team to plan further action. Amidala was set to speak again later and refused to cancel her appearance. That prompted the plan to send a cloaked droid in her place while Amidala spoke remotely from a different location, thought to be secure. Ahsoka sensed that Amidala was still in danger during the speaking and rushed to the room she was in, barely making it in time to deflect a blaster bolt shot by Aurra. Sing then shoots the controls to the room's door to lock the three of them inside. Afterward, Aurra would pull out her blasters and proceeded to shoot at Ahsoka, who was desperately trying to keep up with the pace of the shots to protect Amidala. Shortly after Aurra began firing, Ahsoka was overwhelmed and hit in the arm, collapsing to reveal Amidala holding her blaster, stunning her. Amidala's security was able to pry open the door at that point and place Aurra under arrest.
Return to Coruscant
After returning to Coruscant with Aurra Sing in custody, Ahsoka revealed that the person who hired the bounty hunter was not found out. Yoda then told Ahsoka to use the Force and her instincts to feel who the perpetrator was. After concentrating, she could not figure out the identity of who hired Sing, but gave a few details about who it may be. After hearing the description, Amidala was able to deduce it was Ziro the Hutt. Ahsoka and Skywalker then went to where Ziro was being held to confront him on the charges. Denying them at first, Ahsoka managed to cleverly trick Ziro into confessing by telling him Sing had already told them about the job, to which Ziro furiously raged on Sing's supposed betrayal but unwittingly confessed his crime to Ahsoka and Anakin Skywalker, causing an extended stay in prison.
Heroes on Both Sides
As the Galactic Senate debated on borrowing financial loans from the Intergalactic Banking Clan to fund the creation of more Clone troopers, Ahsoka had difficulty understanding the politics of the war. Anakin Skywalker left her with Senator Amidala, hoping that a lesson in politics would reassert Ahsoka's belief in the righteousness of the Republic's cause. So Amidala planned to go to Raxus.
After their arrival on Raxus, Padmé and Ahsoka met with Mina Bonteri, a separatist senator and one of Padmé's old friends. While Amidala spoke with Bonteri, Ahsoka met the senator's son, Lux Bonteri. After a short talk about their differences, both took a liking to each other. When Mina put opening negotiation with Chancellor Palpatine on the floor of the Separatist Congress, the motion was passed by majority vote. Ahsoka and Senator Amidala returned to Coruscant to relay the news to Palpatine so that the Senate could have the opportunity to vote on ending the war as well. Before the Republic could complete its vote, Demolition Droids sent by Grievous bombed Coruscant's power generator.
Once it was confirmed as a Separatist attack, the Senate canceled the vote, and many senators motioned to redirect corporate economic assets to bolster the Republic war funds to create additional Clone Troopers. After the session concluded, Anakin Skywalker took Ahsoka back from Amidala and expressed deep disappointment in Ahsoka for going to Raxus.
After the Jedi Council received a two-thousand-year-old Jedi distress code from the Chrelythiumn system, Ahsoka Tano accompanied her master, Anakin Skywalker, and Obi-Wan Kenobi to discover the exact origin of the transmission. Aiding in the search was Captain Rex, who remained aboard a Republic Star Destroyer. Although they made it to the rendezvous point, the Jedi could not perceive the Venator-class Star Destroyer; Rex likewise could not see the Jedi's Eta-class shuttle. At that moment, the vessel's power and communication systems deactivated as an irresistible force pulled the Jedi's shuttle into a gigantic crystal-shaped structure, and later all three Jedi were unconscious.
After the Jedi crashed on Mortis, they encountered Daughter; however, they got separated. Anakin followed the Daughter while Obi-Wan and Ahsoka looked for shelter, but they encountered Son, the dark side of the Force personified. When the Son asked if Anakin Skywalker truly was the Chosen One, Ahsoka and Obi-Wan brandished their Lightsabers, believing the dark figure to be a Sith Lord. The Son easily disarmed the two Jedi of their weapons. Before departing, he warned them to take shelter in a nearby cave to avoid the lightning from the oncoming storm. While Ahsoka and Obi-Wan were sleeping in the Cave, Ahsoka saw a vision of herself as an adult. An older Ahsoka Tano sought to warn her younger self about the great danger Anakin Skywalker posed due to his gradual succumbing to the dark side. Before vanishing, the older Ahsoka gave a cryptic warning to the younger version of herself, insinuating that Ahsoka's future might never come to pass as long as she remained at her master's side.
While Anakin Skywalker was tested by Father to discover that Anakin was the Chosen One, Father ordered his children to captured Ahsoka and Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan was at the hand of Daughter, Ahsoka at the hand of Son. The Father tried to forced Anakin Skywalker to choose who would live and who would die between the two, his Master or Padawan. Utilizing the Force in a desperate attempt to bring the Son and the Daughter onto their knees in submission, Ahsoka's master succeeded and, in doing so, demonstrated his ability to create and maintain the balance between the two conflicting sides of the Force. But rather than remain on Mortis to complete his destiny, however, Skywalker opted to leave with Tano and Kenobi to leave the planet via their recovered shuttle.
Altar of Mortis
While the trio was leaving Mortis, Ahsoka was kidnapped by the Son and brought to his palace. Anakin Skywalker tried to pursue the Son but failed when their ship crashed. Meanwhile, Ahsoka was approached by a diminutive and seemingly harmless creature. Although it tried to delve into Ahsoka's innermost thoughts and fears, she remained firmly attached to the belief that her master would rescue her at any cost. Although the creature helped Ahsoka escape from her chains, it also tried to convince her to forget about Anakin Skywalker. When Ahsoka made it clear that she would not willingly turn against her master, the creature sunk its teeth into Ahsoka's arm; as she swiftly fell unconscious, the creature revealed itself to be the Son in disguise.
Meanwhile, Anakin Skywalker succeeded in scaling the Son's tower, only to find his apprentice waiting for him. Although initially relieved to be reunited with Ahsoka, Anakin became uncomfortable as he noticed an undeniable change in her personality. Ahsoka, deeply immersed in the power of the dark side, increasingly gave in to her subconsciously suppressed fears and resentments. It was then that she finally revealed her frustrations with Anakin Skywalker, giving him a dilemma. Either turn to the Dark Side with the Son, and kill her, or she will kill him. Anakin refused to kill her, so she dueled with her Master and told him to stop calling her "Snips." Soon Obi-Wan joined Anakin's battle, having witnessed it from the Father's room in his tower. To this, Ahsoka mocked Anakin further, saying that two Jedi would finally be a challenge. Continuing her barrage of attacks, Obi-Wan revealed that he has a weapon that could destroy the Son, which Ahsoka became intent on obtaining, thus increasing her attacks to get it. Suddenly, the Son and Daughter, having been Force pushed out of the window onto the ground where the three Jedi were fighting, stopped the battle due to their arrival. The Son used Force lightning on the Father, much to Ahsoka's appreciation. He was able to get the Father on his knees. Seeing a chance, Obi-Wan threw the Mortis Dagger towards Anakin, only to be intercepted by Ahsoka, who loyally presented it to the Son. He ordered her to give it to him and, hesitating only slightly for her Master's final pleas to overcome the Dark Side, gave it over.
Death and Resurrection
- "Then let my Daughter's last act be to breathe life into your friend."
- ―Father prepares to help Anakin resuscitate Ahsoka
After Ahsoka gave Mortis Dagger to the Son, the Son thanked Ahsoka before draining the life force from her body, thus leaving her on the brink of death. Anakin, overcome with rage, shouted out and ran for her. The Son used his powers to force him back. Poised to kill the Father, he plunged the dagger and killed his sister, who had shielded the Father. Overcome with grief and anger, the Son fled. Later Ahsoka was resurrected by her master using the last bit of light from the dying Daughter.
Ghosts of Mortis
While the Dark Side of the Force had corrupted Anakin Skywalker, Ahsoka fixed the ship, but Kenobi ordered Ahsoka to abandon the shuttle, but not before rendering its engines useless. Ahsoka drives a speeder to rescue Obi-Wan of the Well of the Dark Side.
Ahsoka and Obi-Wan rejoin Anakin Skywalker and the Father at the monastery, where they are confronted by the Son once more. Rejecting his Father's final plea to turn back from the dark side, the Son fought and easily overpowered his opponents, countering their attacks and retaliating with his considerable power. However, the fight came to an unexpected end when the Father sacrificed his life by using the dagger on himself, thus not only preventing the Son from stealing his power but also robbing the Son of his powers. The Son, shocked and defenseless, failed to prevent Anakin Skywalker from fatally impaling him with a lightsaber blade through the chest. With all three incarnations of the Force destroyed, the realm of Mortis was destroyed.
Upon awakening, Ahsoka, Skywalker, and Kenobi found themselves once more in space and inside their shuttle. At that moment, they were contacted by Captain Rex and were confused to discover that only a moment had passed since they lost all power and communication, despite the time that they spent on Mortis had been considerably longer. Although still somewhat shaken by their entire ordeal, Ahsoka and her fellow Jedi had recovered enough to complete their rendezvous with the Jedi Cruiser.
After Jedi Master Even Piell had been captured with the Nexus Route, Master Plo Koon planned to rescue Piell. However, Ahsoka learned from Skywalker that she could not participate in the rescue of master Piell. While Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Clone troopers prepared to be frozen in carbonite to sneak into the Citadel undetected, Ahsoka confided in Koon regarding her master's decision, believing that the risk of her own life should be left up to her rather than her master.
As R2-D2's Class Type B escort shuttle passed through the Separatist Blockade over the planet, Skywalker and Kenobi discovered that Ahsoka smuggled into the group by having herself frozen last, though she claimed to be assigned to the team by Plo. Although he was displeased at being disobeyed by his student, Anakin grudgingly allowed Ahsoka to accompany the group.
Later, they found that a ray shield guarded their only entrance into the Citadel. Ahsoka was able to crawl into the ventilation system, allowing her to deactivate the shield from within the base. Once inside, Ahsoka and her companions were able to track down Master Piell, but they were trapped by BX-Series Droid Commandos. They escaped from the trap, then found Piell. Later they rescued accompanied her master and Captain Tarkin, along with ARC troopers Echo and Fives and the other captive clones. The two groups planned to rendezvous at the shuttle where R2-D2 awaited them.
Ahsoka was kidnapped by Trandoshans using a stun net during the Battle of Felucia. She woke up in a cage, inside a Trandoshan slave ship, and learned from one of her fellow inmates that they had been captured by Trandoshans to be hunted for sport. When the slave ship arrived at Island Four, the place where they were going to be hunted, they dropped all the prisoners on the beach. The Trandoshans then opened fire with a blaster cannon. Many prisoners attempted to run and were shot. Instead, Ahsoka took cover under a large piece of vegetation before running towards the jungle. The gunner wasn't able to hit her, and she escaped.
She walked shortly in the forest before encountering three younglings: Kalifa, O-Mer, and Jinx. They told her to follow them and led her to their hide-out, where they explained to her who they were and that they had been captured on a training mission and survived until now.
The next day, they went out in the jungle as the hunt began. They saw the Trandoshans target two others, and Ahsoka said they had to save them. Kalifa told her to stay there, and they watched as the two were shot. Ahsoka declared they should have saved them as they left, but Kalifa replied they were survivors, not heroes. Ahsoka replied her master would've never forgiven her for running and hiding in such a situation, and left, despite Kalifa's begging for her to stay with them.
Ahsoka walked in the jungle, completely exposed, calling for the Trandoshans. One of them quickly engaged her. She used the Force to prevent him from shooting her; then, Force strangled him for a short time. The Trandoshan fell to the ground, and she jumped on his back. They fought, and he ejected her on the ground and regained his gun. He prepared to fire but was prevented by Kalifa, who started to Force strangle him. But unlike Ahsoka, she kept strangling him, attempting to kill him. Ahsoka made her stop, reminding her it wasn't the Jedi way to kill out of hatred.
The Trandoshan once again dropped to the ground and called for help. Ahsoka and the younglings fled as the Hover Pods arrived. They were chased by two Hover Pods and soon splitting into two groups: O-Mer and Jinx and Ahsoka and Kalifa. The Trandoshans were chasing Ahsoka and Kalifa, and soon, a blaster broke the branch where Kalifa was stepping. She fell and was wounded. One Trandoshan, Garnac, went after her. He chased her and finally got in front of her. He was going to shoot her when Ahsoka dropped from an upper branch and kicked him in the face, giving Kalifa the occasion to escape. They fought in hand-to-hand combat, and finally, as Garnac attempted to leap on her, she dodged, and he fell and impaled himself on a stalagmite.
Ahsoka left him and went back to Kalifa, where she helped her to walk away. But as they left, Kalifa was shot in the back. Just before dying, she told Ahsoka to take care of O-Mer and Jinx.
Ahsoka escaped from the Trandoshans tracking her and returned to their hide-out, where she announced the news of Kalifa's death. O-Mer and Jinx were struck, and O-Mer declared all was lost. But Ahsoka refused to fall into despair and refused to give up. She made a plan to high-jack the dropship that brought prisoners to escape.
The following night, the dropship came to drop new prisoners. They jumped on it, and one of the two pilots got out to attack them. O-Mer and Jinx engaged him while Ahsoka got inside to neutralize the pilot. The Trandoshan opened fire on her, but she dodged the bolts and force pushed him in the window, killing him. But the blaster bolts had damaged the ship, and it was starting to crash.
Meanwhile, outside, O-Mer and Jinx kept fighting their Trandoshan. They were eventually able to make him fall from the ship. As the ship started to fall apart, Ahsoka struggled to keep the ship flying in an attempt to save the prisoners. She had to contempt herself for releasing them using the hatches and then to jump out to save her own life.
The ship being a complete wreck, Ahsoka and the younglings realized their plan to escape had failed. But as they prepared to leave, they heard a roar coming out of the wreck. A Wookiee, Chewbacca, got out. Once they got back to their improvised base, they talked to him, using Ahsoka's knowledge of Shyriiwook. He told them his name and that he could build a communicator out of the wreck to contact his home planet. They came back to the ship, and he chose the materials he needed. As he and Ahsoka left the dropship, they were located by a Trandoshan dropped there to investigate the crash. He prepared himself to snipe Ahsoka but was prevented from that by O-Mer and Jinx. They fought, and, ultimately, Chewbacca came to neutralize the Trandoshan. Back to the base, they realized the transmitter Chewbacca had built was not working. O-Mer and Jinx then wanted to attack the Trandoshan base head-on, using their prisoner in their favor. Ahsoka was against the idea, but since they weren't going to change their plans, she accepted to go with them, feeling responsible for them.
The next day, they forced their prisoner to call in a hover pod. It was sent, and Chewbacca knocked out the pilot. Then, Ahsoka, O-Mer, and Jinx attacked the Trandoshan flying base. But they were hopelessly outnumbered and outgunned and were eventually defeated. As their death seemed inevitable, the Halo arrived, transporting a platoon of fully armed Wookiees; the communicator had finally worked. The battle restarted, and all the Trandoshans were killed. Their leader escaped in the upper level, but Ahsoka went after him. He ambushed her with a gun, and they fought in close combat. After throwing him to the ground and disarming him, Ahsoka ordered him to stand down. He refused and reached for the gun. Ahsoka Force pushed him through the door, and he killed himself as he landed many meters down.
Ahsoka, the Wookiees, and the younglings were brought back to Coruscant by the Halo, where she was reunited with her master, Anakin Skywalker. He excused himself for not protecting her, but Ahsoka reassured him and thanked him for his training that had enabled her to survive and help others to do as well. They walked inside the Temple, with Master Yoda smiling at the duo.
During the Battle of Mon Cala, Ahsoka was deployed with Kit Fisto and several clones to help Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, and the Mon Calamari, who were under attack by the Quarren and the Separatists. Shortly after the initial deployment, she saved her master's life, giving back the helmet he had lost. She was then sent to protect Prince Lee-Char, who was the target of Separatist Riff Tamson. She was able to bring the Prince away from Tamson, using an underwater speeder, and offered him cover and protection during the battle.
Darkness on Umbara
Ahsoka, alongside Barriss, piloted her Delta-7 Aethersprite-class Starfighter to destroy the Separatist fleet protecting the planet of Umbara, which allowed the Republic forces to begin their invasion.
Ten rotations after Master Yoda communicated with the Torguta's colony of Kiros, Ahsoka, and Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Captain Rex landed on the surface of Kiros. Ahsoka and the others moved out on their BARC Speeder to explore the colony. Ahsoka finished off the AAT, and later, Republic troops surrounded the governor's tower.
As Obi-Wan stalled D'nar in combat, Anakin and Ahsoka took AT-RTs and went to disarm the bombs. They were able to disarm multiple bombs that D'nar set around, but two Sniper droids came and fired at her and Anakin, pinning them down as they approached the last two. Short on time, Anakin and Ahsoka discovered a weakness in the droids' design; they had no armor on the side. With the droids dispatched, they quickly disarmed the bombs.
Later D'nar escaped from the tower and tried to escape from the planet with his ship, Tecora. Anakin and Ahsoka hastily pursued and managed to land on D'nar's ship. With the two of them disabling the ship, D'nar unleashed the Blixus, which Anakin handled, while Ahsoka went to the cockpit and stabilized the ship and captured D'nar. Afterward, Anakin aggressively interrogated D'nar on the missing colony. Ahsoka quickly calmed him and was successful in learning about the colonist. With D'nar in custody and having learned of the Zygerrian queen's plan, the three contacted Jedi Council, but Admiral Yularen informed them that the entire colony disappeared.
Slaves of the Republic
Ahsoka, along with Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Captain Rex, traveled to Zygerria. Ahsoka dressed like a slave to locate the enslaved Togruta Colonists. Ahsoka in disguise is given to the queen, and slavers soon capture Kenobi. The queen ordered Anakin to kill Obi-Wan, but he refused. Ahsoka gave a signal, and Anakin turned on the guards. R2-D2 provided the trio with their lightsabers. Ahsoka attempts to capture the queen, but the queen shocked her, and she fell unconscious.
Escape from Kadavo
Having separated from Skywalker, Ahsoka was kept in a cage by her new slaver Atai Molec, but later, Anakin freed her and ordered her to get to their ship and wait for his signal. While waiting, Ahsoka took the opportunity to change back into her normal apparel and clothing.
Ahsoka and Anakin arrived at Kadavo to rescue Obi-Wan and free the Togrutas. Their ship was destroyed, then Obi-wan contacted Anakin said they could not win alone, but the Republic forces command by Plo Koon came to aid Ahsoka and her master. Ahsoka and Anakin were able to get inside the Zygerrian Labor Processing Hub. Ahsoka attempted to help her people, but there were no ways to escape when she got inside. Ahsoka contacted Admiral Coburn to get the ship to rescue her and the Togrutas. Later the ship arrived with Wolfpack command by clone commander Wolffe. When the Republic cruiser arrived on Kiros, and the Togrutas prepared to return to their home, Governor Roshti thanked the Jedi for their help, and Skywalker told him that Ahsoka was the real hero and that he saved a population of Kiros with her creativity. Roshti agreed and spoke with Ahsoka privately, telling her that he still felt sad as he knew that his people would never recover from the horror of the processing facility, but that all she had done for her people was a great deed as well, and Kiros would join the Republic.
A Friend In Need
- "These are the Death Watch! They're Mandalorian terrorists. They'll kill us both!"
- ―Ahsoka Tano tries to warn Lux Bonteri
Padmé Amidala, accompanied by Ahsoka, traveled to Mandalore for peace conferences between the Republic and Separatists. During the meeting, Lux Bonteri arrived and stated that Count Dooku was responsible for the murder of his mother. The Separatist delegates had him removed and escorted to their ship. Amidala had Ahsoka follow them to try and save him. When Lux was brought before Count Dooku, the count ordered the droids to kill Lux. At that moment, Ahsoka arrived and dispatched the droids and got him on to their ship, and set a course for Coruscant. She contacted her master, Anakin, who informed her the peace conferences collapsed and to return herself and Bonteri to Coruscant immediately.
However, Lux told Ahsoka that he made contact with a group on Carlac. When Ahsoka declined, Lux incapacitated her and set a course to Carlac. Ahsoka woke up when Lux had already ventured onto the surface of Carlac. When Ahsoka confronted him, Death Watch, led by Bo-Katan, surrounded them and took Lux and Ahsoka to their camp. Soon after, the group traveled to the Ming Po village. Pre Vizsla gave Tryla, a captured citizen, to the villagers then killed her. Ahsoka revealed herself as a Jedi and attacked the Death Watch, only to be captured.
Back at their camp, Vizsla prepared to execute Ahsoka. Fortunately for her, R2-D2 arrived and gave her her lightsabers, making Pre Vizsla want to duel with her. He pushed her outside and followed Ahsoka but was attacked by some droids that R2 had fixed. Ahsoka managed to escape, but Pre Vizsla ordered Bo-Katan to chase Ahsoka and Lux. However, Ahsoka managed to get to the ship and escape from the planet. Lux wanted to follow on his path on the ship, so he left on the escape pod and promised Ahsoka that one day, they would meet again.
- "I've got him! Go!"
- ―Ahsoka talking to Anakin while Obi-Wan was shot
Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano walked through the nightly street on Coruscant when a sniper opened fire on the Jedi. Ahsoka and the others dodged the attack and were unhurt. Ahsoka chased the sniper on the ground, while Anakin and Obi-wan followed a sniper on the buildings. After they chased him and almost caught him, Obi-Wan got shot by the person. He fell off of the building that Ahsoka was by. After the sniper escaped, Anakin returned to check on Obi-Wan, but Ahsoka's expression showed that Obi-Wan Kenobi was dead.
Once they believed that Obi-Wan had died, Ahsoka and Anakin pursued Rako Hardeen, which was actually Obi-Wan in disguise. Finally, they tracked him down and arrested him.
Friend and Enemies
On Coruscant, Chancellor Palpatine sent Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka to Nal Hutta to capture or kill Rako Hardeen. The two Jedi learned that their ship was at Orondia, and after they quarrel, they prepare to leave. Anakin decided to go for their ship, leaving Ahsoka to pilot the ship. Both ships then crashed, and Ahsoka was knocked out for a while. Meanwhile, Anakin fought the bounty hunters. While the disguised Obi-Wan knocked out Anakin, Cad Bane prepared to kill Anakin. Fortunately, Ahsoka arrived, and she protected her master from the hunters. The bounty hunters escaped, and Anakin awoke. He told Ahsoka that Obi-wan was still alive, so Yoda and Mace Windu told Ahsoka and Anakin the truth.
Crisis on Naboo
In the Jedi Temple communication center, the Jedi Council, alongside Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka, discussed the security for Palpatine's visit to Naboo for the Festival of Light. Anakin proved confident and determined to see the mission done – but perhaps a little too much, earning him concerned glances from Windu, Yoda, and Ahsoka.
When Ahsoka and the others arrived on Naboo, they were greeted by Queen Neeyutnee and Padmé Amidala. On that evening, their Senate guests gather at the Royal Palace to perform the initiation of the festival, with Bane infiltrating the crowd holographically, disguised as a Neimoidian. However, when Dooku’s operation commenced, and Derrown prepared to disable the deflector shield generator, Obi-Wan warned Windu, but he and Anakin could not prevent the shield’s deactivation or Derrown’s escape. Ahsoka helped the queen and the others escape. Later on, Obi-Wan attempted to prevent the Derrown, disabling his jetpack, but his blaster packs had only one shot.
The shield generator’s explosion knocked out the Chancellor, and amidst the resulting confusion, Embo and Twazzi made Palpatine look like a fallen Senate Guard with a holographic matrix while Twazzi took on the Chancellor’s appearance. Anakin and Windu intercepted the two and fell for the ruse, while Bane and Eval escape with the unconscious Chancellor. As the only one closest to the kidnappers, Obi-Wan commandeered a speeder and followed Bane and Eval to the rendezvous point, where their escape ship was waiting. Count Dooku was supposedly arranged to meet the two, but he was nowhere to be found when Eval and Bane got there. When Obi-Wan arrived, he claimed custody of the Chancellor at gunpoint, triggering a vicious fight against Bane. Obi-Wan eventually overpowered the two criminals and handed them over to the authorities, who just arrived, along with Anakin and Windu. When Windu revealed his true name, Bane swore bitter revenge against the Jedi.
"I sense disturbance, something sinister."
"All the way out here?"
"Do you know what....or who it is?"
"No. But whatever it is, it feels familiar."
- ―Ahsoka and Anakin, speaking of Savage Opress on his hunt for his brother
Savage Opress was still on the quest for his long-lost brother, Darth Maul, which Mother Talzin sent him. Gradually, as each day went on, he became stronger and more uncontrollable. As a result, Count Dooku informed General Grievous of Opress' growing power, while Asajj Ventress and Anakin Skywalker sensed something was amiss concerning both of their respective companions Latts Razzi and Ahsoka Tano.
A War on Two Fronts
As the Clone Wars continued, the Jedi Council received a message from the insurgents of Onderon, requesting their aid during a Confederate invasion of the planet. Ahsoka traveled to Onderon with Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Captain Rex to assist them.
Ahsoka participated in the training the Jedi orchestrated with the rebel forces. Amongst the rebels was Lux Bonteri, with who she has had previous encounters. She struggled to focus on her mission as she was distracted by Lux's interactions with Steela Gerrera, a skilled sniper working with the rebels.
After a brief run-in with the droids at their rebel camp, they decide to go to the capital city of Iziz. They will take the fight to the Separatists.
The Onderon Rebels were in Iziz at that time. The Jedi observe the public's reactions to the rebel's strikes. They seemed afraid of them, unsure what their true intentions were. The rebels needed a way to earn the trust of the citizens of Onderon. Obi-Wan, Anakin, and Rex had to return to Coruscant to report on the rebels' progress. They left Ahsoka in charge to keep an eye on the rebels.
Ahsoka took part in several operations carried out by the rebels inside the city walls. Ahsoka, Steela, Lux, and Saw Gerrera ambushed a droid patrol to capture an AAT tank. A rebel by the name of Dono blew up a speeder to block off a road to slow a group of droids down. While the droids were occupied with the speeder, the rebels attacked. They picked off the droids one by one until destroyer droids were called in. Lux and Saw went after the droids from behind. Saw destroyed the first droideka while Steela destroyed the last.
When the tank arrived, Lux and Saw used what they were taught to disable the tank. The four of them then piloted the tank towards the power generator station to wipe out power to the droids.
They stormed the generator station. They are attacked by Commando droids but are quickly overcome by Lux and Steela. Saw fires the cannon of the tank, and the blast hits the generator. The rebels take cover as the station erupts in flames. The power goes out in the city. The rebels have defeated the droids, for now.
The Wrong Jedi
After Ahsoka was caught with the nanodroids, Admiral Tarkin requested that the Jedi Council expel her from the Jedi Order to have a trial with the Senate. Though Obi-Wan Kenobi begged the Council to stay on her side, the rest of the Council believed that Ahsoka was guilty and brought her to the Chamber of Judgement. Although Tano told the truth, the Council stripped her of her Jedi status and expelled her from the Order. Senator Amidala had decided to speak on her behalf, but it did no good. The Court believed Tarkin. But just when Ahsoka was about to be pronounced guilty, Anakin Skywalker burst in surrounded by Temple guards. Skywalker told everyone that he had found the true saboteur, and from the temple, guards emerged one of Ahsoka's closest friends, Barriss Offee. Ahsoka was shocked that Offee could frame her. Later, Tano met up with the members of the Council. They invited her back into the Order but, to everyone's shock, she refused and left. The Council's lack of trust and support had shaken Tano to the very core, and though it was a difficult decision, she chose to walk away from the only home she ever knew.
After leaving the Jedi Order, Ahsoka started a new life as an ordinary citizen in the lower levels of Coruscant. She eventually met Trace Martez, a spice runner, and mechanic, who offered to repair her broken speeder. When some thugs threaten Trace for money that her sister, Rafa, owes them, Ahsoka fights them off. Hiding her Jedi past from them, Ahsoka assisted the two sisters in repairing some old droids of theirs, but they soon turned out to be violent-prone. Without either sister noticing, Ahsoka used the Force to deactivate them.
Ahsoka later joined the Martez sisters to deliver a load of spice to the Pyke Syndicate on Oba Diah. As they were leaving Coruscant, they encountered a Republic star destroyer, which Anakin Skywalker was on with Admiral Wullf Yularen. Sensing Ahsoka's presence on the Martez sister's ship, the Silver Angel, Anakin decides not to pursue them. While in hyperspace, Ahsoka argued with the sisters that the Pykes might also claim the ship and the spice, which is then jettisoned into hyperspace by Trace. When the three arrive on Oba Diah, Ahsoka tried to deceive the Pykes; the Kessel's king double-crossed them, but instead, the three women are captured.
While trying to escape, Ahsoka learned that the Martez sisters lost their parents thanks to Cad Bane during his rescue of Ziro the Hutt, and the Jedi did little to comfort the sisters over their loss. This lead to the sisters becoming embittered towards the Jedi. Ahsoka used the Force to help the sisters escape without their notice, but they were eventually recaptured. During the escape attempt, Ahsoka was unknowingly watched by a group of Mandalorians led by Bo-Katan Kryze.
Ahsoka convinced the Pykes to let the Martez sisters leave to retrieve the lost spice, allowing herself to remain captive in the meantime. While the sisters were gone, Ahsoka broke out of her cell and planted explosives all over the facility. She also discovered the Pykes communicating with Darth Maul, who was operating out of Mandalore. After reuniting with the sisters, Ahsoka admitted to being a former Jedi. The three then destroyed the facility and returned to Coruscant, where Ahsoka fully reconciled with the sisters over keeping her past hidden from them. There, Bo-Katan approached Ahsoka and convinced her to help bring an end to Maul's machinations on Mandalore, an invitation that Ahsoka accepted.
Personality and traits
While Tano's Jedi training was meant to bring out the good side of her personality, she was also plagued by several more aggressive tendencies. When in combat, she displayed determination to win, similar to her master's disposition, and often spoke down to others in battle, behaving as if she was superior to them, again mirroring the attitude of her master. That extended to her behavior towards enemies, as she often came up with degrading pet names for them, such as referring to the IG-100 MagnaGuards as "stick-tinnies" and even calling Asajj Ventress a "hairless harpy" and dismissing Grievous as "just another tinny." She was known to be quite aggressive in her postures and actions, willing to use terror and threats as a means to get information. Even though Tano did not intend to follow through with any of these threats, her behavior caused concern on the part of the venerable Jedi Master Luminara Unduli, who felt Tano's actions were not following the Jedi way.
Ahsoka had light blue eyes, dark orange skin, and brownish-gray lips. Her lekku were white with blue stripes. She originally wore a maroon tube top and mini skirt with white tights and brown combat boots and gloves. She only wielded one lightsaber then and still wore her Togruta Sash and Padawan braid. Later in the war, she wore a burgundy top with a decorative hole in the front and the back out, dark grey leggings with diamonds cut in the sides, crossed belts, gauntlets, and three armbands on each arm, and different combat boots and gloves. Ahsoka also wielded a yellowish-green shoto (short lightsaber) in addition to her regular one, a result of her master giving her training in Niman and Jar'Kai.

"My older brother taught me."

Ahsoka was a skilled warrior with considerable lightsaber skills, especially for an individual of such a relatively young age. Tano was known to utilize a Shien-style reverse grip but, over time, would transition into Niman, Ataru, and Djem So, which she learned from her master. More recently, she has seen using the dual blade fighting style Jar'Kai adopting a yellow colored shoto. In addition to saber combat, Tano had a great deal of martial arts training in the field of unarmed combat, her hits were always precise and often lethal, and she was excellent at hand to hand fighting; she was able to kill three Trandoshans, defeat Cad Bane and match Bo-Katan, the female Mandalorian warrior, in close combat, respectively.
Ahsoka also possessed a strong connection to the Force and often used the Force push ability, as shown when Ahsoka used this skill to save the lives of Jedi Master Luminara Unduli and Lux Bonteri. She also had experience with Force grip and had a strong force sense ability. Ahsoka was later taught the Jedi Mind trick by her master and used it to sneak past Neimoidian guards to save Chairman Papanoida's daughter, Chi Eekway Papanoida.
