This Ahsoka article contains spoilers.

The true identity of former Inquisitor Marrok is a key mystery that Ahsoka fans have been obsessed with solving for the past four episodes. Unsurprisingly, the enigmatic villain sparked many theories.

Some fans believed Marrok to secretly be the new canon version of Starkiller from The Force Unleashed video games, while others were sure it must be Ezra Bridger turned to the dark side. Others even suggested that Marrok could be the former Padawan Barriss Offee who was Ahsoka’s friend before she framed Ahsoka for bombing the Jedi Temple and got her kicked out of the Order. But now with Marrok’s sudden death at the hands of Ahsoka in “Fallen Jedi,” we’re left with even more questions than answers. That said, one clue from his death scene suggests we’re headed toward a particularly horror-tinged twist later in the series…

After Ahsoka strikes Marrok with her lightsaber, and just as he’s falling over, a mysterious green smoke leaves his lifeless body, implying that there’s much more to the former Inquisitor’s actions than a simple hatred of Jedi. For one thing, it could mean that Marrok was actually a corpse brought back to life by Lady Morgan Elsbeth with Nightsister magick, which is usually represented by the color green.
