Friends and Allies
Ahsoka first met Obi-Wan during the Battle of Christophsis, when she was assigned to Anakin Skywalker as his apprentice. Throughout the Clone Wars, the two became good friends. They had a healthy relationship, trusting each other and having each other's backs, Ahsoka having a deep respect for Obi-Wan and Obi-Wan believing Ahsoka had the right to know about Anakin's past.
Nearing the end of the Clone Wars, like Anakin, Obi-Wan also held a high degree of trust in her, being one of the few people that were correctly doubtful of her being guilty of bombing the Coruscant Jedi Temple; he was the only member of the Jedi High Council who was against the decision to strip her of her status as a Jedi, so she could be turned over to a military court for her so-called treason and urged them to show solidarity with Ahsoka. However, unlike Anakin, he did nothing to help Ahsoka clear her name.
Like many of the Jedi, Obi-Wan was present during Ahsoka's trial as presided over by Chancellor Palpatine and during Barriss Offee's confession, proving Ahsoka to be innocent. He was not surprised that Ahsoka had been innocent the entire time.
Unfortunately, Ahsoka refused to rejoin the Jedi Order due to the fact that most members of the Order had refused to believe in her, a decision that surprised all of members of the Jedi Council, including Obi-Wan. After she left the Coruscant Jedi Temple, Anakin ran after her; Obi-Wan started to follow before Plo Koon placed a hand on his shoulder, silently advising him not to, as Plo knew there was nothing they could do about it. Although Obi-Wan was very sad to see Ahsoka leave, he refused to truly acknowledge that the Council were at least partly responsible for Ahsoka leaving the Jedi Order in the first place, believing that Ahsoka had let emotion cloud her judgment, something against the Jedi way.
It was probably the last time Ahsoka saw Obi-Wan alive before he was killed by Darth Vader.
Ahsoka first met Rex during the Battle of Christophsis, when she was assigned to Anakin Skywalker as his apprentice, throughout the Clone Wars the two became good friends.
Initially, Ahsoka believed that because she was a Jedi and he was a captain, that she outranked him, but Rex told her that experience outranks everything; she soon developed a high level of respect for him, as the captain became somewhat of another mentor to Ahsoka, particularly in warfare. The two often saved each other's lives during the Clone Wars and shared a friendly bond similar to the bond Ahsoka shared with Anakin, but not quite as close.
Nearing the end of the Clone Wars, like Anakin, Rex also held a high degree of trust in her, being one of the few people that were doubtful of her being guilty of committing murder and bombing the Coruscant Jedi Temple, telling Commander Fox "I know Commander Tano. She would never do something like this". His reaction to her departure from the Jedi Order is unknown.
When meeting the Ghost crew, Rex told them that any friend of Ahsoka's is a friend of his, showing that they still have a close friendship sixteen years after her departure from the Jedi Order and renouncing her command position in the Grand Army of the Republic.
Rex was deeply saddened when he learned of Ahsoka's apparent death on Malachor.
- “By the way... Your Padawan was brilliant.”
- ―Padmé to Anakin.
Ahsoka and Padmé greatly respected and admired each other. It was Padmé who taught Ahsoka that politics, as well as other things, aren't as black and white as she once thought.
When Ahsoka was accused of treason, Padmé was one of the few people who correctly believed that Ahsoka had actually been framed and after she was expelled from the Jedi Order, Padmé, like Anakin, took an active role in attempting to clear Ahsoka's name. Ahsoka trusted Padmé during this time to confide how betrayed she felt. During Ahsoka's trial, Padmé put up a good defense, pointing out that if Ahsoka really was the culprit she would not have made the so-called evidence against her so obvious. Despite Padmé's impressive defense, the Senate believed Ahsoka was guilty and the young Togruta would have been executed had Anakin not exposed the true culprit.
It was probably the last time Ahsoka saw Padmé alive before she died after giving birth to her children (Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa) combined with the stress that the latter's husband had become evil. Though the two never saw each other again, her affection for a woman that was like a big sister to her remained, as Ahsoka kept her marriage to Anakin a secret.
Ahsoka and Bail became allies after the birth of the Galactic Empire. Though Ahsoka was initially cautious of Bail, they soon came to trust each other; together they created the Rebel Network, a group of Rebel cells, to undermine the Empire and throw wrenches in the Emperor's plans until the time was right for an open rebellion.
Hera was the only member of the Ghost Crew who communicated with Ahsoka, known to the Twi'lek as "Fulcrum" until the events following "Fire Across the Galaxy". Hera is respectful of Ahsoka, and trusts her completely and respected the necessity of Ahsoka keeping her identity secret, that Hera wouldn't allow Sabine to know more, partly to protect the Rebel Network, and Hera (albeit reluctantly) heeded Ahsoka's warning of giving up on Kanan and going into hiding (at least at first). After Ahsoka found out Vader is her former master and fainted in Kanan's arms, Hera was shown that she was concerned for her safety while still trying to pilot the Ghost.
Sabine didn't know much about Ahsoka since the latter girl went by her codename "Fulcrum". Sabine tried so hard to find out who "Fulcrum" was but Hera told her that she didn't need to know which makes Sabine feel distrusted. However, Sabine grew to respect the former Jedi's wisdom and Ahsoka tasked her with many handy work, such as re-activating a Tactical Droid's head to help Ezra, Kanan and Zeb find an old friend of Ahsoka's who can supply the rebel fleet with a list of useful bases.
Before Ahsoka and Ezra met, Ezra only knew Ahsoka by the name "Fulcrum". After Kanan was captured by the Empire Ahsoka told Hera to take her crew into hiding in order to protect Ezra. Ahsoka later saved Ezra and the rest of the Ghost Crew from the Empire on Mustafar. After receiving a message from Maketh Tua that she needed help, Ahsoka was seen smiling at Ezra when he stepped upped and said they need to help Tua, and Ahsoka agreed with Ezra.
Ahsoka seems to see a bit of herself in Ezra, and Ezra seems to have great faith and confidence in Ahsoka, readily trusting Rex on her behalf and correctly believing she could take care of herself when she fought two Inquisitors at once.
When Ahsoka sacrificed herself to give Ezra and Kanan more time to escape from Darth Vader, Ezra was devastated and mourned her loss for a long time afterwards. It is later revealed that he in fact blames himself for her apparent death.
Ahsoka met Kanan when she rescued the Ghost Crew from the Empire on Mustafar. It is currently unknown if Ahsoka and Kanan knew each other during the Clone Wars. During Vader's raid on the Rebel fleet, Ahsoka asked Kanan too help her find out who was in the TIE Fighter, where Kanan asked how he could help, which Ahsoka responded with "Just remember your training". After Ahsoka found out that Vader's her former mentor, she fainted in Kanan's arms with him deeply concerned for her safety.
In "The Future of the Force", Kanan asked about Ahsoka when she was fighting the Inquisitors, shown that he's worried about her and was the first one to suggest that they couldn't leave her.
Kanan was saddened when Ahsoka sacrificed herself to give him and Ezra more time to escape from Darth Vader.
- “It was Master Plo Koon who found me and brought me to the temple where I belonged...”
- ―Ahsoka about when She and Plo Koon first met.
Plo was the very Jedi that found and brought Ahsoka to the Coruscant Jedi Temple, affectionately nicknaming her "Little Soka", Ahsoka had a very close bond with Plo and once mentioned that he was her oldest friend; because of their bond, Ahsoka was able to sense his presence after his fleet was destroyed by the Malevolence.
Unfortunately, nearing the end of the Clone Wars, when Ahsoka was found among nano droids when being accused of murdering Letta Turmmond, all this relationship was shattered making only a few half-hearted attempts to defend her and showing an appalling amount of disloyalty towards the girl who had looked up to him her whole life.
Like many of the Jedi, Plo was present during Ahsoka's trial as presided over by Chancellor Palpatine and during Barriss Offee's confession, proving Ahsoka to be innocent. He was surprised to learn that Ahsoka had been innocent the entire time.
Plo was the only member of the Jedi High Council who actually apologized to Ahsoka after she was proved to be innocent; while the others took no responsibility for their actions, Plo humbly admitted they had been wrong to accuse Ahsoka and even called her by her nickname of "Little Soka".
Unfortunately, Ahsoka refused to rejoin the Jedi Order due to the fact that most members of the Order had refused to believe in her; she was deeply hurt and disappointed by the whole ordeal, and chose to leave the Jedi Order, believing she couldn't trust any member of the Council, not even the Jedi who had brought her to the Jedi Temple in the first place. It was very likely that Ahsoka ended her friendship with Plo; due to his betrayal.
After she left the Temple, Plo was very sad to see his former friend leave, but did not attempt to go after her.
It was probably the last time Ahsoka saw Plo alive before he was killed during the execution of Order 66.
Although Plo had acknowledged that the Jedi Council had been wrong to accuse Ahsoka and took responsibility for his failure, Plo's devotion to his own beliefs in justice and right from wrong ultimately blinded him to the fact that he knew Ahsoka better than any other Jedi, apart from Anakin Skywalker, and that she would never murder someone in cold blood or commit the crimes she was being accused of.
Like all Jedi, Ahsoka deeply respected Yoda and would usually go to him for guidance when Anakin or Obi-Wan were not around. Yoda seemed to have a slight fondness for Ahsoka; in fact, he was the very Jedi who made her Anakin's apprentice.
Unfortunately, nearing the end of the Clone Wars, Ahsoka's trust and respect for Yoda was permanently shattered and broken when he, along with the rest of the Jedi High Council, abandoned her when she was accused of treason, as he believed she would commit unspeakable crimes.
Like many of the Jedi, Yoda was present during Ahsoka's trial as presided over by Chancellor Palpatine and during Barriss Offee's confession, proving Ahsoka to be innocent. He was surprised that Ahsoka had been innocent the entire time.
Along with the rest of the Jedi Council, Yoda personally invited Ahsoka to rejoin the Jedi Order, even offering to promote her to the rank of Jedi Knight, but Ahsoka, feeling betrayed because the Council never believed in her, refused reinstatement and walked away from the Jedi Order, a decision that surprised all of members of the Order, including Yoda.
After she left the Jedi Temple, Yoda was very sad to see Ahsoka leave, but did not attempt to go after her.
It was probably the last time Ahsoka saw Yoda alive before he died from his old age; at the age of nine hundred.
Ahsoka's departure haunted Yoda for sometime afterwards; he felt extremely guilty and remorseful, not just for refusing to stand by her, but also for placing her on the path that led to her departure from the Jedi Order. Only then did he acknowledge that the Council had been wrong to accuse Ahsoka and took responsibility for his failure, albeit secretly.
Like most Jedi, Ahsoka held Mace in high esteem for his legendary wisdom and fighting skills, but he held her in low esteem because of her young age and rebellious nature.
Ahsoka's trust and respect for Mace was permanently shattered and broken when he, along with the rest of the Jedi High Council, abandoned her when she was accused of treason. During the Judgment meeting, Mace openly accused Ahsoka of lying to the Council and coldly closed the matter by casting her from the Jedi Order, stripping her of her status as a Jedi. Her expulsion from the Jedi Order left Ahsoka heartbroken and feeling deeply betrayed by every member of the Council, especially Mace.
When it was confirmed Barriss Offee was the true culprit, Mace was surprised that Ahsoka was innocent and shocked by Barriss's scathing speech against the Jedi Order. Instead of taking responsibility for his and the Council's failure, Mace claimed that Ahsoka's traumatic experience had been nothing more than a great trial that proved she was worthy of becoming a Jedi Knight. Ahsoka, who was still hurt by Mace's lack of trust and support, was deeply disappointed and disgusted by his shamelessness and refused the offer to return to the Jedi Order as a Jedi Knight, feeling she could no longer trust any member of the Council, especially Mace.
It was probably the last time Ahsoka saw Mace alive before he was killed by Palpatine.
Ahsoka served alongside Ki-Adi during the second battle of Geonosis. Though Ki-Adi found the adventurous natures of Ahsoka and Anakin unusual, he quickly developed a degree of respect for her, especially after she and Barriss destroyed the Droid Factory. Ahsoka also highly respected Ki-Adi.
However, when Ahsoka was accused of treason, Ki-Adi, like the rest of the Jedi High Council, abandoned her. He made no attempt whatsoever to defend her and alongside Mace Windu, openly accused her of lying to the Council, and stripped her of her rank and status as a Jedi.
Like many of the Jedi, Ki-Adi was present during Ahsoka's trial as presided over by Chancellor Palpatine and during Barriss Offee's confession, proving Ahsoka to be innocent. He was surprised that Ahsoka had been innocent the entire time.
Afterwards, Ki-Adi joined the Jedi Council in offering to reinstate Ahsoka into the Jedi Order and praised her efforts to prove her innocence, even quite warmly stating she had shown the true signs of a Jedi Knight. However, he failed to understand how deeply the ordeal had effected Ahsoka, and thus was both shocked and surprised when she refused to rejoin the Jedi ranks.
It was probably the last time Ahsoka saw Ki-Adi alive before he was killed during the execution of Order 66.
Ahsoka met Lux when Padme journeyed to Raxus Prime to meet his mother Senator Mina Bonteri. It was Lux who helped Ahsoka learn how life wasn't as black and white as she thought.
When they first met during the second battle of Geonosis, Ahsoka and Barriss quickly became close friends and helped each other on numerous occasions. Their friendship came to an end after Barriss turned against the Jedi Order and framed Ahsoka for all her own crimes.
During Ahsoka's trial, Anakin unveiled Barriss, who finally confessed her crimes. Ahsoka was deeply shocked and hurt to learn that not only did her former friend set her up, but she was also willing to let her be executed for crimes she didn't commit.
Barriss' betrayal would haunt Ahsoka for years to come. Two years later, after the birth of the Empire, she would express her belief that while Barriss was wrong about most things, she did have a point about the Jedi and the Republic, and that if they had truly listened to her they might have been able to stop Palpatine before it was too late.
Like Anakin at first, Ahsoka initially respected Palpatine, but the two became enemies after she left the Jedi Order; after Palpatine declared himself emperor, Ahsoka helped Bail Organa create the Rebel Network. Bail also revealed to her that Palpatine is Darth Sidious.
Ahsoka first met Tarkin during the mission to rescue him and Jedi Master Even Piell from the Citadel. Unlike her then-mentor, Anakin Skywalker at first, she didn't like Tarkin at all for his arrogance and rude comments, as well as his disdain for the Jedi Order, while he didn't like her for her starry-eyed view of life. Despite her dislike for him, Ahsoka saved him from being killed by the Citadel Prison warden.
Ahsoka's dislike for Tarkin was intensified when the latter prosecuted Ahsoka when she was accused of treason. Tarkin, like the members of the Jedi High Council (excluding Obi-Wan Kenobi), he refused to believe in her innocence and the rising body count only convinced him that Ahsoka was guilty even when Padmé pointed out that he had no real proof and that all the evidence that was present proved otherwise.
After Ahsoka was proved to be innocent, Tarkin didn't apologize to her for what put her through, and the two have been enemies ever since because after the birth of the Galactic Empire, Ahsoka helped Bail Organa establish the Rebel Network and Tarkin joined the ranks of the newly born Imperialists and became the Imperial who founded Imperial Doctrone. Ironically, Tarkin's prosecution of her and demands for her expulsion from the Jedi Order saved her life, as she was not present during the execution of Order 66.
- “You're reckless, little one. You never would've mad it as Obi-wan's Padawan... but you might make it as mine.”
- ―Anakin to Ahsoka.
Ahsoka initially had a rocky relationship with Anakin, due to her snarky attitude. She became annoyed when Anakin told Rex that he had no intention to train her, in retaliation she called him "Skyguy".
After the battle of Christophsis, Anakin finally accepted Ahsoka as his apprentice and the two quickly became good friends. He would not give up on saving Ahsoka after she got caught in an explosion of a droid foundry that she destroyed with a tank, having no other method. Greatly relieved that Ahsoka was still alive, he told her that he hadn't doubted her, after she told him that she knew he would save her.
When Obi-Wan told him it was Anakin who had saved the day, Ahsoka "felt a rush of pride" and boasted that she was his apprentice. That pride was evident in his trust in her to command in his stead, such as during the Battle of Ryloth. Ahsoka's presence seemed to soften Anakin's reckless and impulsive nature. Similar to Anakin's relationship with Obi-Wan, she occasionally disobeyed him, and he did not like it when Ahsoka disobeyed him.
Nearing the end of the Clone Wars, Anakin held a great degree of trust in her, being one of the few people to correctly believe that Ahsoka had actually been framed. However, he also realized that he could not help her directly as it would have made her seem even more guilty than she was already believed to be by everyone else. After she was caught, he was the only Jedi who took a proactive approach to clearing her name. He also managed to track down the actual guilty party, Barriss Offee, and expose her after defeating her in a lightsaber duel. Although Ahsoka was grateful for Anakin's trust in her, she ultimately could not stay as she longer trusted the Jedi High Council because they had turned their backs on her when she needed them the most. Ahsoka was very sad to leave her friend and former mentor, behind, as well leaving the only life she ever knew. Before leaving, due to her closeness with the two of them, she inferred to Anakin that she knew of his secret marriage to Padmé Amidala, mentioning an "I know," when he agreed he had his reasons for wanting to leave the order as well.
The last time Ahsoka saw Anakin was before he was sent to rescue chancellor Palpatine from Count Dooku and General Grievous; unknown to either of them, this would be the last time they would see each other as friends, before Anakin fell to the Dark side.
- “I won't leave you... Not this time!”
- ―Ahsoka during the duel with Darth Vader.
Ahsoka believed for years that Anakin was killed in the Jedi Purge, unaware at the time, that he is in fact the ruthless Sith Lord Darth Vader. When she discovered the truth, she was left heartbroken and in shock that her former mentor was worse than dead, but in fact the very threat she was facing. However, she still aided the Rebel fleet against Vader, despite their past friendship.
After she entered the Lothal Jedi Temple in "Shroud of Darkness", Ahsoka has a vision of Anakin, who torments Ahsoka, expressing a twisted hatred of her for leaving him. The vision of Anakin is a manifestation of her guilt, as Ahsoka secretly feels extremely guilty and remorseful for leaving her former mentor.
In "Twilight of the Apprentice", Ahsoka finally comes face-to-face with her former mentor. When Vader offers to spare her life if she tells him where the other lost Jedi are hiding, Ahsoka states that there are no more Jedi thanks to Vader and his Inquisitors. She is still in denial that Anakin and Vader are the same person, Ahsoka expresses outrage that she ever suspected so and refuses to believe it. Vader then claims that Anakin was weak and that he (Vader) destroyed him. Ahsoka then coldly decides to avenge Anakin's "death" and engages Vader in a fierce lightsaber duel.
After Ahsoka slices off part of Vader's mask, she sees Anakin's disfigured face; she is shocked and saddened, but finally accepts that Anakin and Vader are one-and-the same. She offers him compassion, firmly stating that she won't leave him. For a moment Ahsoka's compassion appears to have reached Vader, but he then shrugs it off and cruelly resolves to kill her. Despite them now being enemies, Ahsoka stays behind on Malachor to give Kanan and Ezra time to escape. She continued her duel with Vader during the Malachor Sith Temple's destruction until she was rescued by a future version of Ezra before Vader was able to strike her down, as revealed in "A World Between Worlds". Vader left the temple scathed but alive, and confused over Ahsoka's disappearance during their duel.
During the Siege of Mandalore, Ahsoka and Maul had a direct confrontation, in which Ahsoka and her comrades briefly managed to capture the former Sith. Though Ahsoka was given the opportunity to kill Maul (since she was longer a Jedi, she could kill an unarmed opponent), she instead chose to save Rex, allowing Maul to escape. Though she didn't regret this decision, despite this, Ahsoka suffered from guilt over her failure to catch Maul, especially since the Jedi Order was no longer around to protect the galaxy from his wrath.
Sixteen years later, they come face-to-face once again on Malachor. Ahoska is shown to distrust Maul, while Maul is shown to think very little of Ahsoka, often calling her things like "Part-timer" and "Lady Tano" in mockery of her departure from the Jedi Order.
