- "My sister… you were the only one I ever truly loved."
- ―The Son
The Daughter was a member of a powerful family of Force wielders who inhabited Mortis. She served as the paragon and the personification of the light side of the Force, embodying compassion, serenity and love among other attributes.
The arrival of the Chosen OneEdit
When the Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, and Ahsoka Tano visited the planet Mortis, Daughter, as a paragon of light, came into conflict with her sibling, Son, a paragon of dark, and Father, a paragon of balance between the two, attempted to stop their confrontation. Eventually, Daughter shapeshifted into her other form, a great four-legged eagle with the same colors as her, and kidnapped Kenobi, and Son shapeshifted into his form, a great flying monster, and kidnapped Ahsoka Tano. Father brought Skywalker to an arena, where Daughter and Son landed with their captives. Skywalker was tasked by Father to save one or the other from death at his children's hands. Refusing to choose, Skywalker used a massive Force wave and disentangled his master and apprentice from the talons of the siblings, ultimately bringing Son and Daughter to their knees. This show of power illustrated to Father that he could trust Skywalker to be the Chosen One and keep his children in balance, as he himself was dying. Skywalker refused however, and boarding his ship with Kenobi and Tano, left Father and his children behind.
The Daughter was present when the Son attacked and attempted to murder the Father, although she did not witness the assault herself. Convinced of the danger her twin brother posed by Kenobi, the Daughter left the Father to recover at the Monestary, and took Kenobi to the Altar of Mortis. There, she told him to retrieve the Dagger of Mortis, knowing that the blade could kill the Son. Travelling to the Son's tower, the Daughter pled with him to stop his attempts to escape Mortis, as well as confronting him over trying to kill their father. When the Son refused to stop, the Daughter engaged him in a heated duel, both unleashing their great power against each other; the Daughter employing her mastery of telekinesis against the Son's deadly Force lightning. However, the siblings were evenly matched, and forcibly separated by the recovered Father. The Jedi tried to kill the Son with the Dagger, but the attempt was thwarted, and the Son obtained the blade for himself. Using the Dagger, the Son tried to kill the Father again, but at the last second, the Daughter leapt in the way, and was fatally stabbed in the back. As a horrified Son fled, the Daughter asked her father not to hate him, as to be destructive was the Son's nature. Nearing death, the Daughter chose to use her final moments, and last amount of power, to heal Tano, who had been poisoned with the dark side and left for dead by the Son. With Tano saved, the Daughter died, and the balance of the Force on Mortis became undone until both the Son and the Father died not long after.
After the Daughter sacrificed her life, the Father buried her body within a tomb with the Dagger of Mortis laid upon her breast. She was later visited by the Son, the grave's final visitor, to retrieve the dagger. There, he admitted that he truly loved his sister.
Personality and traitsEdit
- "It is in my nature to do what is selfless. My brother's will always be to do what is selfish."
- ―The Daughter
The Daughter was a selfless being who cared greatly for her family, particularly her father. She was very concerned for the Father's failing health, and looked after him when he was injured by the Son. In her greatest show of loyalty and love, the Daughter threw herself in front of the Dagger meant to kill the Father, sacrificing herself to save him. Despite their natures as polar opposites, the Daughter also loved her twin brother, the Son, pleading with him to stop his efforts to unbalance the Force and escape Mortis, and asking her father, even as she died, not to hate the Son.
The Daughter was also a very compassionate woman, empathizing with the struggles of the stranded Jedi. She tried to help them as soon as they arrived by taking them to her Father, although she later participated in kidnapping Ahsoka Tano and Obi-Wan Kenobi as part of the Father's test. The Daughter's compassion was shown exceptionally in her final moments: she used the last iota of power in her body to heal Ahsoka Tano, and died content that she had saved her.
It is worth noting that the Daughter was the only member of the Ones who was on good terms with both of her family members: both the Father and the Son were devastated by her death, neither having intended for her to die, despite their attempts to kill each other.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
Although she rarely expressed her powers in the Force, the Daughter was a very powerful being. Like the rest of her family, she had no fixed material form, and displayed the ability to change her shape at will, particularly by assuming the form of a large griffin. She also possessed telekinetic abilities, being able to throw the Son around the room where they were fighting. She also had healing abilities, which she used to try to heal her injured father. During her fight with the Son, the Daughter showed the ability to deflect and absorb Force lightning, deflecting every blast the Son shot at her, and even redirecting a bolt back at the Son. At the conclusion of their duel, the Daughter was able to match the Son's lightning with an equally powerful Force push, and, while she never managed to overcome him, the Son also failed to penetrate his sister's defense, proving that they were evenly matched.
Only three beings were known to be strong enough to challenge the Daughter: the Father, the Son and the Chosen One Anakin Skywalker.
