Ahsoka Tano is as complicated as she is inspiring, as one of the few Jedi padawans who left the Order and stayed good. Can Ahsoka be considered a Grey Jedi, though? What is the Grey Jedi, and how do you become one? Does Ahsoka Ever Return to the Jedi Order? Keep reading to find out.
The Grey Jedi are regarded by both the Sith and the Jedi as Force users who use both the light and dark sides of the Force without allowing one side to prevail. Grey Jedi are not Jedi since they forsake the Jedi code and teachings of the Jedi High Council.
They are also rejected by the Sith due to their extensive use of the light side. However, anyone who disagrees with the Jedi Council or goes against their orders is referred to as a Grey Jedi is another description.
Does Ahsoka Qualify for The Second Kind of Grey Jedi?
Because she leaves the Jedi Council after being disillusioned by the masters, Ahsoka qualifies for the second type of Grey Jedi. First, the Togruta warrior is falsely accused of a terror attack on the Jedi Temple. After being exonerated, she is denied a formal apology by the Council.
Ahsoka’s confidence in the Order is shaken, and she rejects the Jedi Council’s dogmatic ways, deciding to leave for good. Ahsoka was one ‘yes’ away from becoming a Jedi Knight if she had stayed. The next time we see Ahsoka is in the season 1 finale of Star Wars Rebels, which takes place nearly ten years after the events of The Clone Wars.
She has been a member of the Rebel Alliance for a long time, yet she refuses to call herself a Jedi. By the end of Rebels, events like Kanan’s sacrifice and Ahsoka’s duel with Anakin have inspired hope among her admirers that she would reconsider her mind.
But will she re-join the Jedi Order, or at least the remnants of it? Or has she abandoned the Jedi’s traditional methods for good, opting for the Gray Jedi road instead? Keep reading to know more.
Did Ashoka Quit Jedi?
Ahsoka Tano first appears in Star Wars: Clone Wars as a brave young woman assigned to be Anakin Skywalker’s Padawan. During the Clone Wars, she is chosen by none other than Jedi Master Yoda to accompany Anakin on his missions.
Ahsoka was on her way to becoming a Jedi Knight until the terrible bombing at the Jedi Temple, which resulted in the deaths of a prisoner and several clones. With only a smattering of evidence, Ahsoka was charged with bombing the Jedi Temple.
Ahsoka was exiled from the Jedi Order right away, and orders were given to execute her. In reality, Ahsoka was set up by fellow Jedi Padawan Barriss Offee, who intended to show how heartless and warmongering the Jedi Council is.
Even after quitting the Order, Ahsoka continues to live as a Jedi, but she never identifies as one, as we see in Star Wars Rebels. She manages to avoid succumbing to the dark side of the Force’s temptations. That makes her not just a Grey Jedi, but also one of the most powerful Force users in history.
Does Ahsoka Ever Return To The Jedi Order?
There is no formal confirmation that Ahsoka will re-join the Jedi Order. However, she reappears in the Rebels finale epilogue, looking much more mystical and Jedi-like. We can’t say for sure because Rebels never mentions what Ahsoka acts after returning to Malachor.
The Clone Wars’ last season gives us a glimpse into Ahsoka’s life after she leaves the Order. Ahsoka chooses to hang out in Coruscant’s lowest echelons, which are plagued by crime and poverty, making it tough to make ends meet.
Although the information is few, we may deduce that she had been working hard to separate herself from her Jedi past. She met sisters Rafa and Trace in the netherworlds of Coruscant, who offered her an honest assessment of the Jedi Council’s insincerity.
As a result, many believed Ahsoka may have re-joined the Jedi Order after Palpatine destroyed the Council. So, this is all the information we know about Ashoka returning to Jedi. Keep reading the Poptimes to know more.
