Snoke’s unlimited power

Even with Supreme Leader Snoke’s fragile physical state, The Last Jedi showcases his extreme power within the Dark Side of the Force. We know he hails from the Unknown Regions of the Star Wars universe, but not much else is known about his actual beginnings.

Snoke has a deep connection to Dark Side’s past — displayed in his golden ring, which is etched with glyphs of the Dwarti, ancient lawgivers of the original Republic thousands of years ago. The Dwarti are not new to the Star Wars galaxy, with ties to, guess who, Sheev Palpatine himself. In his personal quarters during the Prequel trilogy, Palpatine had four statues, representing these four Sages of Dwartii.

Palpatine fancied the Sistros the most and relocated it when he moved into the Imperial Palace — the former Jedi Temple — following Order 66. Braata is known to have adopted the Dark Side of the Force. Could Snoke even be one of these Sages himself?

Snoke’s ring is also made of obsidian from beneath Vader’s castle on Mustafar, which was the location of an ancient Sith Temple a long, long time ago. For some reason, Snoke seems more obsessed with Darth Vader, than Palpatine, but that is yet to be confirmed.

According to Andy Serkis, who plays Snoke via motion capture in The Last Jedi, the template for his attire is based on the extravagant Hugh Hefner. Unlike Palpatine before him, Snoke embraces the perks of being the most powerful baddie in the galaxy by sporting a golden robe and slippers. With great power, he’s able to seduce a promising young Jedi, Ben Solo to the Dark Side of the Force.
