An American miniseries that is written by Dave Filoni, ‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’ is a part of the ‘Star Wars‘ franchise and a spin-off series of ‘The Mandalorian’. ‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’ takes place in the same time frame as the events of ‘The Mandalorian’ and also is interconnected to ‘Returns of the Jedi’ while being a continuation of the animated series ‘Star Wars Rebels’.
The series follows the adventures of Ahsoka Tano a.k.a Rosario Dawson as she investigated an emerging threat to the galaxy following the fall of the Empire. Along with Ahsoka, there is one more character that the audience has met previously, Morgan Elsbeth. Although labeled as the mysterious character in episodes one and two of ‘Star Wars: Ahoka’, here’s everything to know about the former Magistrate of Calodan.
Who Is Morgan Elsbeth In ‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’?
Played by Diana Lee Inosanto, Morgan Elsbeth is the antagonist in ‘Star Wars: Ahsoka’. The fans were introduced to Morgan Elsbeth as a prisoner, whom Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati rescued from a New Republic ship in the opening credits of ‘Star Wars: Ahsoka‘ episode one. It is later revealed that Morgan Elsbeth is the descendant of the Nightsisters of Dathomir (they are basically the witches in ‘Star Wars’).
Also, Morgan is a devotee of Grand Admiral Thrawn and is hell-bent on tracking him down and retrieving him. While the audience is still wondering what her appearance in ‘Ahsoka‘ means, there is a possibility that she is actually on a hunt for the Grand Admiral Thrawn and also on her task to track down a map left in a temple built by the Nightsisters of Dathomir, her ancestors.
