9. Ahsoka Tano
One of the most well-known and skillful Force users in history, Ahsoka Tano did not consider herself a Jedi. Despite this, her influence on the Jedi Order and the galaxy-at large cannot be understated. From her humble beginnings as a young Padawan to a fierce warrior who passed on what she had learned, Ahsoka left a mark on the Force that was felt for generations.
The young Togruta was first inducted into the Jedi Order as a Padawan under Anakin Skywalker. While Skywalker was initially hesitant to take her in, Ahsoka soon proved herself an extremely proficient fighter, and would accompany her Master on numerous missions throughout the Clone Wars.
However, after being framed for an attack on the Jedi, Ahsoka became disillusioned with the Order and would soon leave its ranks. However, she never stopped her training and would soon join the Rebel crew of the Ghost after the emergence of the Empire. This allowed her to continue the fight for freedom while also going on to help train the potential future generations.
Even the fall of the Empire would not be the end of Ahsoka’s adventures. A few years after the galaxy was freed, the Mandalorian Din Djarin brought his adopted “son” Grogu to her. Upon meeting the powerful youngster, Ahsoka would hone her training skills once again, and help teach Grogu how to further control his Force abilities.
A remarkable Jedi and one of the most powerful warriors of her time, Ahsoka Tano played a pivotal role in nearly every era of the Skywalker saga. Her ferocious tenacity, combined with her caring nature, has endeared her among Star Wars fans, and she remains one of the franchise’s most popular characters.
