“I am no Jedi.” –Ahsoka Tano, Star Wars: Rebels
After the Empire rose to power, insurgent cells throughout the galaxy began their own shadow wars against the newly founded government. Under the codename “Fulcrum,” Ahsoka Tano became a key figure in one of these cells, gathering intelligence for Senator Bail Organa. Working closely with the Spectres, Ahsoka became a mentor to the young Rebel cell. This relationship placed her square in the path of Inquisitors, bounty hunters, and ultimately her old master. In this installment of Scene to Stats, we’re taking a look at Ahsoka Tano for Star Wars: Legion.
A formidable warrior, Ahsoka Tano can be used as an Operative for the Rebel Alliance. Coming in at 165 points, she has a number of abilities that will bolster any force she is added to. Trained by the Jedi, Ahsoka has all the hallmarks of a Force user, with two training slots and two Force slots. Her keywords are mainly defensive in nature, with Defend 1, Deflect, and Immune: Pierce keeping her safe from incoming attacks. When Ahsoka is ready to take the fight to the enemy, Jump 2 and Charge ensure she gets there safely. Once in combat, Ahsoka’s lightsabers are ready to do damage, utilizing two red, two black, and two white attack dice. Combined with Impact 2, Pierce 2, and surge to critical, Ahsoka has no issues holding her own against her enemies. Finally, Jar’Kai Mastery is a new keyword that allows her to spend Dodge tokens to improve attack die results. These talents aren’t all she brings to the fight—continue reading to see how Ahsoka Tano can be of service to the Rebel Alliance in your games of Star Wars: Legion!
Ahsoka brings four new command cards to the fray, one of which recalls her time with the Ghost Crew. Family Reunion gives Ahsoka Tano Teamwork: Sabine Wren. Additionally, when either activates, the other may make a speed-2 move. This ensures both of these agile warriors always get the best approach on the way to engage their enemies. Her three pip is A New Beginning. When Ahsoka Tano activates, she recovers. Any small base trooper unit she orders gains an aim or dodge token, and Ahsoka gains Inspire 2. When she finds her allies are in trouble, Swift Protector gives Ahsoka Tano access to Guardian 2 and provides her nearby allies with a free dodge token whenever they defend. Finally, I Am No Jedi gives Ahsoka the extra punch she needs to eliminate a difficult target. She gains Agile 1 and adds a white attack die to her attack pool for each dodge token she has (up to 3).
