|Unidentified Nightsister (Shira)|
|Chronological and political information|
- "It's a trap! This is an illusion spell those beings are able to cast!"
- ―The unidentified Nightsister
About one hundred years before the Galactic Civil War, this witch somehow escaped a Jedi intervention on Dathomir. She managed to stow away in starship that was stopping over oi the planet. When the navigating crew finally noticed her presence on board, she was forced to use her powers on them. But the ship's captain briefly came back to his senses, and he programmed the navicomputer to hit the ground, hoping to bring the witch to her doom.
The Nightsister survived the crash on planet Shira, but she was unable to repair the starship and was condemned to stay on that jungle planet forever. In order to survive, she passed as a goddess in front of the native K'aargs, a primitive race of lizard-like humanoids. When she was displeased with one of her new subjects' behavior, the Nightsister would turn them into a brainless servant. One day, when archeologist Jonas Tylers landed on Shira to explore antique ruins, the Dathomiri witch finally saw a way out.
Powers and abilities
This witch would generally fight with a weighted staff, and she was also trained for hand-to-hand combat and sword fighting. She was able to apply the Dark side of the Force offensively, in the form of Force lightning. A strange and rare power, this witch could use metamorphosis and take the shape of other beings. It seems she also displayed talent with precognition, as she could sense incoming dangers or abnormal activities.
Behind the scenes
This unidentified Nightsister has only appeared in the French RPG magazine Casus Belli 109. In the original story, she was referred to as "Elle" (always between quotation marks), which is just a French pronoun meaning "she".
