Who Is The Inquisitor “Marrok” In The Ahsoka Series?

The Ahsoka series is well underway with the show debuting the first two episodes of the series together last week. In an opening 2 episode premiere, we got to meet different villains throughout the two episodes and one who is the center of conversation at the moment is the Inquisitor Marrok and who exactly they are.

Over the course of the past week I’ve seen many theories on who it could be, while all these theories do somewhat make sense, could one of them be true?

One theory that is probably the biggest talking point is that Marrok is actually Starkiller from the old Force Unleashed video games. One of the major reasons why this is a major point is simply the credits for the show. Eager-eyed fans noticed a familiar name within the credits, and that name is Sam Witwer.

Many know Sam Witwer as the “Star Wars guy”, he’s voiced many characters and is the motion capture and voice for Starkiller in the video games, he’s also the voice of Palpatine in some Star Wars projects. Could he have voiced a character within the first two episodes so is Starkiller actually in the show?

For me, I can’t get on board with it being Starkiller, I feel that if they do Starkiller they will need to drastically change the character. Dumb him down in power and abilities. I feel as though if they truly wanted to do Starkiller, they’d go all out.

Next is that Marrok is actually Ezra. Another theory that sort of makes sense. Ezra is a major point of the show, the search for Ezra is important for many characters, if Thrawn is back, where is Ezra? I feel as though if this were Ezra, it would be obvious. What I mean by this is that this has been done many of times in other projects. Ezra is a fantastic Jedi, but as seen in Rebels, he has no issue using the dark side, could Thrawn has fully turned him?


Then again with Ezra, there is the wolf connection. Marrok is the name of one of King Arthur’s Knights who was turned into a werewolf by a witch in league with Morgan Le Fay. Ezra has been known to have a strong connection to Loth-Wolves. Baylan Skoll and Shin Hati have a connection to wolf symbolism as their names are connected. Morgan Elsbeth is also named Morgan similar to Morgan Le Fay.

My personal favorite theory is that Marrok is Barriss Offee. I love this theory. The actor in the Marrok suit is obviously a man, but what if they are pulling a “Taskmaster” style twist? What if when Marrok is unmasked and that is a big if, what if this Marrok character is actually a female and is Barriss Offee?

The theory stems from the Clone Wars. Offee grew disillusioned with the Jedi’s role in the wars, believing they had lost their way from the ideals of the Jedi Order that was supposed to represent, and wary of the Jedi Council in particular.

Offee acted on her concerns by bombing the Jedi Temple and framed Ahsoka for the crime which in turn led Ahsoka to be punished by the Council and ultimately set her on the path to becoming a “civilian”. When we last saw Offee, she was put in front of the Jedi Order in a tribunal and she showed that she had been corrupted by the dark side before being taken away this was before Order 66 happened so what makes the perfect candidate for an Inquisitor? Offee fits this candidate. We haven’t seen her since, could she still be alive?

With Offee being revealed as Marrok could set up a potential villain for a season 2 of Ahsoka.
