AHSOKA has finally revealed the truth about Marrok with it’s Marrok Ahsoka Twist and we really didn’t see this coming… did you?
Warning: Spoilers Ahead
Ahsoka Part 4: Fallen Jedi finally revealed the mysterious truth about surrounding Marrok and what lies beneath Marrok’s helmet and it really wasn’t what we or other Star Wars Ahsoka fans were expecting.
Marrock wields the red lightsaber of a Sith Inquisitor. His face has been hidden behind his black mask from the start of the series. We have heard Marrok speak with a very heavily modulated voice. But we haven’t really seen or heard much more.
This has led to scores of Ahsoka fans coming up with fan theories about the masked villain. Some fans were convinced that Marrok was either Sam Witwer’s Starkiller or even a dark corrupted version of Ezra Bridger, Mara Jade was even thrown into the list.

Any of these options would have been compelling viewing and also confusing as they played out, but the truth about Marrok is he is just Marrok.
In an epic lightsaber duel on Seatos in the Denab system, Ahsoka comes into direct conflict with Marrok. Ahsoka is no stranger to battling enemies with double lightsabers and manages to outsmart the mysterious villain, cutting her white lightsaber through Marrok’s midsection, and killing Marrok, all this happening while Ahsoka’s Padawan Sabine Wren was in the middle of her own personal battle with Shin Hati… we did say it was epic!
But this was no ordinary death as we see Marrok combust into a burst of green dust-like energy mist erupting from his wound accompanied by what sounds like a scream.
In The Clone Wars animated series, we witnessed Savage Opress dying in a very similar fashion to Marrok after Darth Sidious kills him on Mandalore. As Savage lies on the ground, green smoke is also seen coming from his body so it is safe to assume that Marrok was also a Nightbrother.
An Emperor’s Inquisitor?
So it would appear that Marrok was once one of the Emperor’s Inquisitors, who was raised from the dead by Morgan Elsbeth using Nightsister magic as a henchman to assist her alongside the fallen Jedi Baylan Skoll and his apprentice Shin Hati.
Ahsoka Part 1 revealed that Morgan was a Nightsister with her powers of clear display during the first four parts of the series.
The Nightsisters used their powers with Savage Opress it is more than likely that Morgan did the same to Marrok. He would have made the perfect candidate for her after the fall of the Empire with his force-sensitive abilities being a bonus.
