SW Rebels Mando Fun Fact

Clan Rook is seen in the scene where the True Mandalorian clans pledge themselves to Bo-Katan. Did you know Clan Rook is also in Star Wars: The Old Republic and was originally a clan made of pirates and slavers masquerading as a Mandalorian Clan to hide that they were a criminal enterprise who would kill anyone who threatened to publicise that fact? But did you also know that the smuggler companion Akaavi Spar’s clan was refused help from Clan Rook which ended in her whole clan being slaughtered besides her. They did this to get a favourable contact in the Sith Empire which were also the people who slaughtered her clan, hence why she is a Republic character companion. Even though the Mandalorians were allied with the Sith Empire at that time, she refused to ally with them because they were a factor in the destruction of her clan. Eventually Akaavi found out about that and that Tayari Rook had refused to send help in the Sith Empire’s attack on her clan which lead to her killing Tayari Rook and any member of Clan Rook that didn’t escape. To make matters worse, Clan Lone had been disgraced and ended up joining Clan Rook and Akaavi’s lover was a part of Clan Lone. The survivors of Clan Rook were originally members of Clan Lone who were smart enough to retreat when Akaavi attacked. 

What happened in the few thousand years between Star Wars The Old Republic and Star Wars Rebels to do with these clans is unknown, but it is clear that Clan Rook becomes a legitimate clan, presumably thanks to the Clan Lone survivors who would have kept the Clan Rook name after their clan was disgraced. Eventually they would have taken the symbol of a snake which symbolises a rebirth or transformation. A nice touch by the animators of Star Wars Rebels.

“It is you.” | Rey Kenobi

Kylo’s version: [ + ]

Here’s a happier thought: in another world, things are different.

Darth Vader takes one look at this feral fierce daughter of queens and politicians, this girl lying silver-tongued and spiteful to his face and thinks oh. And a heartbeat later he thinks Padme because this child looks so much like her, down to the imperious jut of her chin. And she looks like a boy he knew once, a boy called Anakin Skywalker, who was reckless and absurd and so strong with the Force that the universe buckled around him.

He says, “You are adopted, aren’t you,” and Leia’s eyebrows skyrocket.

“What relevance does that have,” she manages, “Lord Vader,” and Lord Vader would smile if he could. Instead he reaches down to touch her beautiful face; she flinches away, shows her teeth, and he feels his heart full up to bursting point.

He says, “None at all.”

Alderaan does not burn. Tarkin does though. He falls in two neat, sizzling halves.

“Um,” says Leia. Vader’s lightsabre burns red in her eyes.

“I’m no friend of the Emperor,” says Vader, says Anakin. And, “I knew your mother.” And then, because he’s Anakin Skywalker and planning has never been one of his strong suits, he offers her his hand.

“Come with me.”

“Will Alderaan be safe? My parents?”

My parents. Not by blood, but by choice, and that matters more.

“I will protect them,” says Anakin.

Hey @fireflyfish… I made you something c:

(For anyone who doesn’t know, this is a Jedi version of Ahsoka from Firefly’s timetravelling, swashbuckling, emotional rollercoastering, all around excellent fic ‘Tano and Kenobi’! I wanted to draw her in Jedi robes. Go read it!)

PS She has her beaten-up Rebels boots on because I feel like she is a woman who knows to hold on to comfortable footwear when she finds it.
