The Wild Hunt was an ancient folk myth of the Nightsisters of Dathomir. It was thought that once every year, ethereal riders visible as dark figures with glowing eyes would come out of the spirit realm to gallop through the woods, shouting hunting-calls and taking with them any who crossed in their path.[1]


Mother Talzin, head shaman of the Nightsisters during the Clone Wars, claimed in her instructional treatise on the Nightsisters entitled Wild Power, to have personally witnessed a Wild Hunt. According to her, it was conjured by the Fanged God when the four moons of Dathomir were at their brightest and the snow had melted on the slopes of the Shattered Ridge.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Dathomiri Wild Hunt was inspired by the eponymous real life Wild Hunt.[2] Those fantasmal hunting parties were thought to be led by the Devil or a black-faced emissary of his.
