Thongla Jur[1]

"Ahsoka Nanostarter and Padmé Amidala will be representing me."
Ahsoka Tano[src]

Ahsoka Nanostarter was a female Togruta of the Jedi Order. She grew up with Ahsoka Tano and they were both taken to the Jedi Temple by Plo Koon in 33 BBY. She was taken on by Jedi Master Thongla Jur. She aided Tano when she was on the run from authorities in 20 BBY and was Tano's lawyer, along with Padmé Amidala, at Ahsoka Tano's trial.

During the Clone Wars, Ahsoka was assigned as the padawan of Thongla Jur, member of the Jur family. Ahsoka was involved in many battles with her master, such as: the Battle of Teth, the Battle of Felucia, the Battle of Cato Neimoidia, and many others. In 22 BBY, Ahsoka was sent along with Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano to battle Separatist forces on Teth and rescure Jabba Desilijic Tiure's son, Rotta the Huttlet, so that the Republic can gain access to Hutt Territories through an alliance with the Hutt clans. Later on, she went to investigate a report about Torpo the Hutt selling the Valsedian space belt to the Separatists.

Around the same time, Ahsoka was present when the Neimoidian Jedi Master Gutlag Dofine acted as his cousin, Lushros Dofine, behind enemy lines on Cato Neimoidia. She was disguised as Dofine's servant and managed to seduce a Neimoidian captain, who later gave her the location of a secret room. After entering the secret room, Ahsoka found the plans for a new weapon that the Separatists were building. While leaving to go get Dofine, she ran into droids, who had knocked out Gutlag and brought him with them. They then shot Dofine in the back of the left arm. But, Ahsoka managed to destroy the droids and escape with Dofine alive. She then took him to a nearby Republic ship, where they treated the Neimoidian Jedi.

Sometime later in 20 BBY, Ahsoka was sent to Nal Hutta by the Jedi Council to clear up the Ziro the Hutt incident with the Hutt Council. Shortly after arriving, the Death Watch and the rest of the Shadow Collective came to make an alliance with the Hutts. Ahsoka his in the Council's chambers out-of-view of the Death Watch and others. And when Jabba ordered bounty hunters that he had hired to go after the intruders. Ahsoka then went along with the bounty hunters and fought back until the Collective's reinforcements came, she then ran back to the chambers to get the Hutts to safety.

Later that same year, Ahsoka was present when an explosion occurred in the Jedi Temple Hangar Bay and her and Tano were assigned to investigate. Ahsoka had also helped Tano while she was on the run and when she was captured. She, along with Padmé Amidala became Ahsoka's lawyers during her trial. She would later attain Knighthood and survive Order 66 and would become part of a team that included other on-the-run Jedi, including Rachi Sitra. Ahsoka would later become the master of Gizar Oki and Ursa Saresh.

The CollectiveEdit

In the year of 20 BBY, the Jedi Council sent Ahsoka to clear up the Ziro the Hutt incident with the Hutt Council. Shortly after arriving on Nal Hutta, the Death Watch and the Shadow Collective came to make an alliance with the Hutts. But a skirmish started and Jabba sent Ahsoka and other bounty hunters after them. After accepting a soon-to-be defeat, she ran back to the Hutt Council's chambers to escort Arok, Marlo, and Oruba to safety. But after the exit had gotten blocked by a collapsed wall, Oruba became injured and stuck. Arok tried to help but then Ahsoka and Marlo urged him to hurry, so he did.

After taking Arok back to his palace, Ahsoka left for the Jedi Temple on Coruscant to inform the Jedi Council. Though Shaak Ti, Ahsoka, and Coleman Kcaj thought that they should help, the rest of the Council said no and that was that.

Trial of Ahsoka TanoEdit

Attaining Knighthood and the Battle of Cato NeimoidiaEdit

Shortly after her cousin's trial, Ahsoka gained {{SW|Jedi Trials|knighthood]]. Shortly after her trials, Ahsoka was positioned as a general in the Grand Army of the Republic and was assigned to go with Jedi Master Roron Corobb to Cato Neimoidia to participate in the campaign against the Separatists.[2] Shortly after reaching the planet, their Republic cruiser was shot down, forcing Ahsoka, Roron, and the rest of the ship's crew to retreat into the escape pods.

Once Ahsoka's escape pod reached the planet's surface, she and her team found Corobb and continued to go towards the capital. After calling in for more troops and ships, several gunships were sent down to their location and they were given more supplies and troops. Once they reached the capital, Ahsoka and Corobb battled the numerous of battle droids that were storming the senatorial palace.[2] Once they got inside the palace, Ahsoka and Roron found the droids taking Neimoidian Senator Lott Dod to the launch pad, where there was a Separatist ship waiting for them. Ahsoka and Roron then destroyed the MagnaGuards and Droidekas "escorting" the senator and made sure he was put on the next Republic ship heading for Coruscant.[2]

Battle of ShiliEdit

Shortly after the Battle of Cato Neimoidia, Ahsoka was sent to her homeworld to aid Jedi Master Kabbura Illip Happura and his forces in battling against the Separatists.[2] While heading towards the capital, Ahsoka's gunship was shot down just outside the city, though only Ahsoka and three other clone troopers, including her clone commander, survived.[2]

Battle of CoruscantEdit

In 19 BBY, the Separatist forces led by General Grievous attacked the Galactic capital, Coruscant.

Order 66Edit

"Master Skywalker…what are you and your troopers doing here?"
―Ahsoka when Vader and his troops attack the Jedi Temple.[src]

Some months after the Battle of Coruscant, Ahsoka began studying Holocrons with fellow Jedi and distant cousin Shaak Ti.[2] However, shortly after the rest of the Jedi Council left to arrest the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, fellow Jedi Knight and friend Anakin Skywalker and hus troopers approached the entrance to the temple and began shooting their way through the temple.[2][3] As soon as Ahsoka asked what Anakin and his troopers were doing there, he pushed her aside into the wall, knocking her out.[2]

After regaining consciousness, Ahsoka saw that many other Jedi had been slaughtered by the clones and began to climb the statues to see what had became of the rest of the Jedi. She saw that a number of Jedi had fallen, including Shaak Ti — though she would again survive the attack — and was about to run when a group of clones had spotted Ahsoka and started shooting at her.[2] She managed to block all of the blaster fire and proceeded to take the treacherous clones. While on her way to her starfighter, she ran into her clone commander, Slythers, and prepped her lightsaber to duel when he revealed that he was trying to help her. He told her that he would let her go if only she would take him inside her starfighter, and she agreed.[2]

Though the space proved to be tight, they both managed to get into the starfighter, and they made their way to Shili.[2] After arriving on the planet Shili, Ahsoka met up with her cousin, Ahsoka Tano, and the rest of her family and found out that Jedi Master Kabbura Illip Happura, who was disguised as a local crime lord, was there hiding as well. Ahsoka and the others then decided to have her and Tano to disguise as two servant girls, since the Nanostarters was a prominent family with servants, but was treated as though she was a member of the family.[2]
