Era(s)

The Nightsisters were a group of Dathomiri Witches (usually exiled from one of the other clans) who used the dark side of the Force. Though they used the dark side, their powers and abilities were quite different from the Sith Lords, which caused confusion among Jedi scholars as to who or what they really were.

Around the time of their defeat, their leader was Gethzerion, who endlessly terrorized the other Dathomiri Witch clans.

History

Founding

A Nightsister Initiate

The Witches of Dathomir had a long tradition of exiling darksiders and others who broke their ancient code to live outside the warrior clans in solitude and contemplation. However, at some point in the waning days of the Galactic Republic, the exile Gethzerion began to gather these outcasts to form a new clan, which became the Nightsisters. Over time, this group came to resemble the traditional clans and started to expand, raising its own children to heed the power of the dark side, although they did not regard it in those terms. While the other clans were reluctant to forcibly oppose them, their numbers rose steadily, counting approximately one hundred in 8 ABY.

The Clone Wars

It was known that during the Clone Wars, the Night Sisters were in-league with Count Dooku. This faction of dark side users were under the control of Sai Sircu and Yansu Grjak. Dooku had recruited them into the Confederacy of Independent Systems to help with espionage but their true goals are their own. They were involved in the plot to smuggle and make use of lightsaber crystals which made the Jedi Council aware of this new threat. At the time, they were allied with Count Dooku and his mysterious master who they betrayed in order to achieve their own goals.[1]

Fall of the Nightsisters

After the defeat at Yavin 4, the Empire established a prison colony on Dathomir. Gethzerion aided them, tracking down escapees and renegades, hoping to obtain passage offworld. When Emperor Palpatine came to learn the true extent of Gethzerion's dark power, however, he came to fear the formidable threat she posed to him. He had all the ships stationed on Dathomir destroyed and detached a fleet group to enforce a quarantine on the planet in order to keep her grounded. The Nightsisters then took over the Imperial prison, and enslaved all the stranded Imperials stationed there, trying but failing to cobble together an escape craft.

Despite this, there were several Nightsisters, such as Silri, who apparently managed to escape this fate. They allied themselves with Tyber Zann of the Zann Consortium. The nightsisters fought on the side of the Zann Consortium riding mighty Rancors. Other escapees included Charal, who ended up on Endor.

In 8 ABY, when a number of the Rebellion's heroes were stranded on Dathomir, Gethzerion made a deal with Warlord Zsinj that in exchange for turning over Han Solo, the Nightsisters would get access to a ship so they could escape the planet. However, Zsinj double-crossed them and had two Imperial Star Destroyers fire upon their escape shuttle, killing them all.

Rebirth

Around 23 ABY, a new clan of Nightsisters was formed by Tamith Kai in the Great Canyon. This clan accepted males and treated them as equals instead of slaves, as opposite to traditional Dathomiri society. The best of the clan were sent to the Shadow Academy for more training, with the rest remaining in the Great Canyon. Unlike the traditional Nightsisters, this new clan was heavily influenced by Imperial Dark Jedi teachings and drew upon the dark side of the Force as a concept. The fate of those left behind after the Shadow Academy fell is unknown, although at least one of them, Lomi Plo, later left the planet after the Second Imperium's fall.

Attributes of a Nightsister

The first Nightsister clan tended to display ruptured blood vessels (bruises) on their bodies especially around their eyes, a corruption due to constant use of the Dark side of the Force. Many higher Jedi Masters like Yoda also believed it was their power to manipulate weather patterns that made their appearances so rare. For unknown reasons, perhaps Imperial Dark Jedi training, this was not true for their later successors. There was no "uniform" for the Nightsisters, and each wore clothing that suited them personally, although most tended towards black robes and cloaks, adorned with tribal jewelry and accessories. Many of them also had unusually pale skin, which was perhaps painted. Nightsisters were known to be able to empower swords and other simple weapons with the Force, making them unbreakable even to lightsabers. They also use their Force powers to control Rancors.

The Nightsisters were a group of Dathomir Witches and Sith Lords, led by Sai Sircu. They tried to steal lightsaber crystals for their ship, the Devastation. However, once Anakin and Mace Windu defeated Sai Sircu, the Nightsisters disbanded.

Yansu Grjak talks perfectly. However, Sai Sircu talks in a slurred speech.

General Grievous is the only member of the Confederacy who has not met the Nightsisters.

A Nightsister Protector in Combat

Table of contents

Game Info

A tribe of Dark Side Force wielding Dathomir Witches. They are known for keeping male slaves. Their leader (according to Star Wars Canon) is Gethzerion, found on the second floor of the Nightsister Stronghold. Another powerful Nightsister, Axkva Min, is also situated in the Stronghold (in the caves beneath the area, entrance is outside the gate) under very heavy guard, and slaying her gains the player a Badge.

The NGE removed the Nightsisters Force Powers and more dangerous melee abilities such as bleed attacks. With Publish 29, Force Powers have been reintroduced, making Nightsisters far more dangerous, and much more fun. As always, many varieties deathblow and it is a long, long way between cloning facilities on Dathomir. With the AI improvements in publish 29, deathblows are more random - sometimes a foe will slay you, at other times, only incapacitate you.

There are many types of Nightsisters roaming the plains and forests of Dathomir. Some of the more common types are detailed below.

Star Wars Lore

The Nightsisters were a group of Dathomir Witches (usually exiled from their clan) who used the Dark Side of The Force. Before their defeat, their leader was Gethzerion, who endlessly terrorized the other Dathomiri Witch clans.

Due to Palpatine fearing the power of Gethzerion, he had all the ships stationed on Dathomir destroyed. The Nightsisters had then taken over the Imperial Prison, and enslaved all the stranded Imperials stationed there. Gethzerion had then made a deal with Warlord Zsinj that in exchange for turning over Han Solo, the Nightsisters would get access to a ship so they could escape the planet.

The Nightsisters were defeated after years of tyranny in 8 ABY, when the ship they were on was blown up by two of Zsinj's Star Destroyers.

Around 23 ABY, a new clan of Nightsisters was formed by Tamith Kai in the Great Canyon. This clan accepted males and treated them as equals instead of slaves. The best of the clan were sent to the Shadow Academy for more training, with the rest remaining in the Great Canyon. The fate of those left behind after the Shadow Academy fell is unknown.
