The relationships of Ahsoka Tano.
- Main article: Yoda
Like all Jedi, Ahsoka deeply respected Yoda and would usually go to him for guidance when Anakin and Obi-Wan weren't around. Yoda chose Ahsoka as Anakin's Padawan, hoping she would get Anakin to learn the lesson of letting go so he could let go of his past and fulfill his destiny as the Chosen One. But that plan backfired when Ahsoka was framed for treason and the Jedi Council expelled her from the Jedi Order, showing her that they would rather do what the Republic said than follow their traditional ways. After finding out Ahsoka was innocent, the Council personally invited her to rejoin the Order. They even offered to promote her to the rank of Jedi Knight, as they considered Ahsoka's ordeal to be her "great trial", making her a stronger and better person and a true Jedi. Feeling betrayed because the Council never believed in her and unimpressed by their opinion of her traumatic ordeal, Ahsoka refused reinstatement and walked away from the Jedi Order, a decision that surprised all members of the Order, including Yoda.
Ahsoka's departure haunted Yoda for some time afterward; he felt extremely guilty and remorseful, partly for refusing to stand by her and partly for placing her on the path that led to her departure from the Jedi Order. In fact, his guilt was so great that the Dark Side attempted to use it against him, but failed.
Ahsoka and Yoda would see each other again years later in the Lothal Jedi Temple, where they shared a mutual smile and moment before Ahsoka had to flee.
- Main article: Obi-Wan Kenobi
Ahsoka Tano was the padawan of Obi-wan's former padawan, Anakin Skywalker (who later became Darth Vader). They had a healthy relationship, trusting each other and having each other's backs. Obi-Wan became something of a second mentor for Ahsoka. Obi-wan thought Ahsoka had the right to know about Anakin's past and told her even though Anakin wanted it kept secret from the young Togruta. When Ahsoka was framed for murder, Obi-Wan was one of the extreme few that were doubtful of her guilt; he was the only member of the Jedi Council that 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. Despite this, however, unlike Anakin, he did nothing to help her clear her name and didn't apologize when it was discovered she was innocent. He was surprised and saddened that she chose to leave the Jedi Order, which was her only home and felt guilty afterward.
It is currently unknown if Ahsoka and Obi-Wan met after Order 66, but Ahsoka became Darth Vader's main target for finding him.
- Main article: Rex
- “Ahsoka Tano. I fought by her side from the battle of Christophis to the siege of Mandalore. And a friend of hers is a friend of mine.”
- ―Captain Rex, regarding Ahsoka[src]
Ahsoka and Rex met around the same time as she met Anakin, and she at first tried to pull rank on him during the Battle of Christophsis. He quickly put the fourteen-year-old in her place, and she soon developed 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 as close.
When meeting the Ghost crew, Rex told them that any friend of Ahsoka's was a friend of his, showing that they still had a close friendship sixteen years after her departure from the Jedi Order and renouncing her command position in the Grand Army.
Rex was deeply saddened when he learned of Ahsoka's apparent death on Malachor.
- Main article: R2-D2
Ahsoka and R2-D2 met when Ahsoka was assigned to Anakin Skywalker as his Padawan Learner, on the planet Christophsis. Next to Anakin, Ahsoka seemed to be the closest (organic) friend Artoo had.
- Main article: Hondo Ohnaka
Ahsoka and Hondo had a mutual understanding during the Clone Wars. Hondo captured Ahsoka during a raid to steal Kyber Crystals from five younglings. But after General Grievous attacked Hondo's base, they had to put their differences behind them to escape him.
It is unknown if Ahsoka and Hondo ever saw each other after she left the Jedi Order.
- Main article: Kaeden Larte
- Main article: Hera Syndulla
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).
Even after finally seeing her trusted informant's face and role, Hera continues to hold Ahsoka in great esteem.
After Ahsoka found out Vader is her former master and fainted, Hera was shown that she was concerned for her safety while still trying to pilot the Ghost.
Hera was saddened when she learned of Ahsoka's apparent death on Malachor.
- Main article: Sabine Wren
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 what she needed to know, which, makes Sabine feel untrusted. However, Sabine grew to respect the former Jedi's wisdom, and Ahsoka tasked her with much 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.
Sabine was saddened when she learned of Ahsoka's apparent death on Malachor.
- Main article: Ezra Bridger
- “One chapter has closed for you, Ezra Bridger. This is a new day. A new beginning.”
- ―Ahsoka talking about Ezra's future.[src]
Before Ahsoka and Ezra met, Ezra only knew Ahsoka by the name "Fulcrum." After Kanan was captured by the Empire Ahsoka told Hera too take her crew into hiding to protect Ezra. Ahsoka later saved Ezra and the rest of the Ghost Crew from the Empire on Mustafar. After fleeing the battle, Ezra finally met Ahsoka on board the Ghost, where she tells Ezra that his message has given hope to people in need and that one chapter in his journey has closed. 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.
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 afterward. It is later revealed that he, in fact, blames himself for her apparent death.
- Main article: Kanan Jarrus
- “The force is strong with him! Kanan, lets find out how strong.
How can I help?"
Just remember your training.”
- ―Ahsoka and Kanan trying to figure out who is in the TIE Fighter.[src]
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 had found out that Vader was her former master, Anakin Skywalker, she fainted in Kanan's arms, leaving him deeply concerned for her safety.
In Future of the Force, Kanan asked about Ahsoka when she was fighting the Inquisitors, expressing his worry for the latter, 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.
Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker
- Main article: Darth Vader
Yoda chose Ahsoka to be Anakin's padawan so he learns the necessity of letting go so he can let go of his past but when Ahsoka and Anakin first met, their relationship was rocky, due to Ahsoka's "snippy" attitude and Anakin having not wanted a Padawan, to begin with. They eventually developed a close bond with each other, similar to a child and parent or even a big brother and little sister. After Anakin was severely injured during a mission to save Aayla Secura, Ahsoka was deeply concerned for her master, not wanting to leave his side until he was better. When Ahsoka chose to leave the Jedi Order, Anakin was very conflicted, heartbroken and felt personally responsible. Ahsoka was grateful to Anakin for having believed in her and stood by her through it all, but ultimately felt she could not stay, that she had to work through this matter without the Jedi Order and him, stating she knew how he understood the choice of leaving the Order. Anakin kept his padawan's braid as a way to remember her.
Later on in the war, Ahsoka saw Anakin again just before he left to save Chancellor Palpatine.
That would be the last time Ahsoka would see her former teacher as the man he was.
During Vader's attack on the Rebel Fleet, both Ahsoka and Vader became aware of each others' existence, and Ahsoka was left suspicious of who Vader was. Later, when Vader informed the Emperor of Ahsoka's survival, the former ordered him to personally hunt her down and use her to find any surviving Jedi.
While meditating in the Lothal Jedi Temple, Ahsoka had an illusion of Anakin's disappointment in her leaving and then transformed into Vader. Ahsoka then lashed out, only to find nothing there. Despite finding out the truth, Ahsoka still refused to believe Anakin and Vader were one in the same.
Upon their long-awaited reunion on Malachor, Vader offered her mercy in exchange for the location of any remaining Jedi, which Ahsoka refused, and voiced her doubts of who she thought was behind that mask, to which Vader coldly responded that he killed Anakin Skywalker, spurring a duel between them. When Vader finally revealed his true identity to Ahsoka, she finally accepted the truth and offered him compassion. Despite this, he cruelly declared his intent to kill her, and any trace of the bond he and his former student once shared died completely. It is unknown who ultimately came out on top in their battle, as Vader survived while Ahsoka's fate was left ambiguous.
- Main article: Wilhuff Tarkin
During a mission to save Jedi Master Even Piell and Tarkin from the Citadel, Ahsoka questioned Tarkin's opinion on the Jedi and their ways. Before they were rescued by the Republic, Ahsoka saved Tarkin from being thrown into a lava pit, which he then thanked Ahsoka for her help. Even though she saved him, Tarkin had no problem prosecuting her when she was framed for murder and treason.
- Main article: Inquisitors
Ahsoka engaged the Fifth Brother and Seventh Sister in battle after coming to the aid of the Ghost crew in Hammertown. Despite her Jedi training being incomplete, Ahsoka proved more than a match for the two Inquisitors, easily defeating them despite being attacked by both at once. She demonstrated complete confidence during the confrontation and was unimpressed by the Inquisitors' threats or their reinforcements.
- Main article: Maul
- “Running away again, Lady Tano?”
- ―Maul to Ahsoka when she went after Ezra[src]
During the Siege of Mandalore, Ahsoka and Maul had a direct confrontation, in which she and her comrades briefly managed to capture the former Sith. Ahsoka was given the opportunity to kill Maul (since she was no longer a Jedi she could kill an unarmed opponent), but she instead chose to save Rex, who was in peril. Although she didn't regret this choice, she nevertheless 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 came face-to-face once again on Malachor. Ahsoka hesitated to team up with him but reluctantly agreed. Maul later attacked Ahsoka, but the former was left to fight Kanan. Maul seemed to think little of Ahsoka, as he called her things such as "part-timer" and "Lady Tano" in mockery of her departure from the Jedi Order.
- “Barriss Offee was wrong about a lot of things. She let her anger cloud her judgment, and she tried to justify her actions without considering their wider effects. She was afraid of the war, and she didn't trust people she should've listened to. But she had a point about the Republic and the Jedi. There was something wrong with them, and we were too locked into our traditions to see what it was. Barriss should've done something else. She shouldn't have killed anyone, and she definitely shouldn't have framed me for it, but if we'd listened to her-really listened-we might have been able to stop Palpatine before he took power”
- ―Ahsoka expressing her mixed feelings over Barriss's actions[src]
Ahsoka first met Barriss during the second battle of Geneosis. Despite their somewhat differing personalities and beliefs, the two quickly became close friends. When Barriss begged Ahsoka to kill while she was being controlled by a brain worm, Ahsoka refused.
However, their friendship was broken when Barriss turned against the Jedi Order and framed Ahsoka for all her crimes, getting her expelled from the Order and turned over to the Republic military. When Anakin revealed Barriss's duplicity, Ahsoka was deeply shocked to learn that her friend had been setting her up.
Barriss's betrayal haunted Ahsoka for years to come, even after the rise of the Galactic Empire. The pain that someone she had considered a friend had used her for her own selfish gain changed every part of Ahsoka's outlook; it greatly shook her certainty in the Jedi way, and left her somewhat unsure about making new friends. However, despite everything Barriss did, Ahsoka still had some affection for her former friend. She later expressed her belief to Bail Organa that while Barriss had gone gone too far in trying to prove her point, her criticisms about the Jedi and the Republic were correct, and that if they had truly listened to her, they might have been able to stop Darth Sidious before it was too late.
