- "But during your time away, you must not forget what Dathomir has given to you. Although space is cold and empty, Dathomir's wilderness is lush and rich. It may be years before you return, so never forget the place that birthed and nurtured you – you will always be a Nightsister."
- ―Mother Talzin
This manual was written at some point during the Clone Wars, when Talzin was clan mother and shaman of all witches on Dathomir. At some point, the manual fell into the hands of Asajj Ventress. The latter included many handwritten comments throughout the pages, comparing Talzin's teachings with those of her new master, Darth Tyranus.
Darth Sidious somehow recovered this text and included it in his Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side, a collection of writings dealing with the dark side of the Force, which was published after the Declaration of a New Order (circa 19-18 BBY).
