Ahsoka Tano is a female Togruta Jedi Padawan under the apprenticeship of famed Jedi General Anakin Skywalker. She is Senator Riyo Chuchi's best friend and a moral support for her whenever she is in need of guidance. She had been assigned to Anakin during the Battle of Christophsis and while coming off as headstrong and rough around the edges, was a great asset in helping turn the tide in favor of the Republic. She also went on to aid her best friend Riyo in ending the Trade Federation blockade over her homeworld of Pantora. Several days afterwords, Riyo informs her of a plan she had formulated herself to search the Unknown Regions of any space-fairing races willing to aid in the War, and also that she had discovered a recentely dormant affinity with the Force inside of her. She even once asked her if she could secretly help train her to gain a handle on her newfound gift, but was a little hesitant to agree. Suddnely, a stray meteor struck the hull of her Riyo's ship, causing her to slip over the controls to the Hyperdive and accidentally activate it, which in turn caused Ahsoka to loose contact with her friend. A few hours later, she recieves contact from Riyo, whom she is relieved to see okay and in one piece. Riyo then goes on to explain that she crashed landed on a far off and isolated world called Earth, where she met a young Human boy named Adam who claims he knows of the Republic, Jedi and their conflicts against the Separatists, through the use of entertainment videos called "movies." As Riyo tells her of the events she witnessed while watching one, (specifically Episode I) Riyo and her speculate that if they can tell of events from the past, then they can do the same for the future, and help them figure out the indentity of the masterminds behind the War and put a stop to them.
