Master Kenobi's former Padawan, now on the Jedi Council
Female Togruta Jedi Master
Ahsoka Tano is a Togruta Jedi Master. During the Clone Wars, the conflict between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Tano was assigned to Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi by Jedi Grand Master Yoda, and showed an eagerness to prove herself worthy to be his apprentice. Tano was involved in the defeat of the Separatist army on the planet Christophsis, and was important to Republic efforts during the Battle of Teth. Along with Kenobi, Tano was instrumental in acquiring the Republic’s safe passage through Hutt Space, due to her part in rescuing the son of Jabba the Hutt, which ensured an alliance between the Republic and the Hutt clans.
Along with her Master, Tano proved a key figure during the events surrounding the Separatist star dreadnaught, the Malevolence, a ship capable of destroying entire Republic fleets with its dreaded ion cannons. Partially due to her involvement in the crisis, the Republic was able to destroy the superweapon, removing yet another advantage possessed by the Separatists. Later, Tano would duel the feared General Grievous himself, becoming one of the few Jedi to survive such an encounter with the cyborg.
Over the years, Tano attained the rank of Jedi Knight, and most recently was made a Jedi Master and member of the Jedi High Council. Tano often teaches Jedi younglings and padawans in moving objects, sensing their surroundings, and in the Shien-form of Lightsaber combat. She prefers field work to Council duties, however, and possesses a spirit for adventure that Kenobi was never able to break.
