Snips: the evolution of Ahsoka Tano

5 of 6

Stance on politics

Jedi removed themselves from getting involved with politics. It became commonplace for them to talk about the subject, but not to get involved directly. Ahsoka didn’t understand why Jedi and politics didn’t mix until it was explained to her. However, this didn’t stop her from being friends with Padmé or Riyo.

In Season 3 of The Clone Wars series, Ahsoka took Padmé’s side when they and Anakin talk politics in Heroes on Both Sides. By this time, Ahsoka knew politics weren’t perfect. She understood that the Jedi and politics didn’t mix and that the two should remain separate.

When The Student Becomes The Mentor

While Ahsoka never made the rank of Jedi Knight, she was a mentor to many. Master Yoda often charged her with leading the younglings looking to construct their lightsabers. She taught them as Yoda would have and slipped in a few of her teachings along the way.

She became a mentor to Ezra Bridger and former Jedi Padawan Kanan Jarrus. Ahsoka was older by three years and knew him during the Clone Wars, having crossed paths with him.

What made Ahsoka’s interaction with Ezra fascinating is her reaction towards his personality. She was gentle in the same way Anakin was gentle towards her when a situation wasn’t her fault. She admired him because she saw herself as an inexperienced teenager within him.
