OK, so here's what we know officially about Ashoka All seems pretty straightforward. Anakin is assigned a Padawan and they are going to fight together. Fair enough. But the latest Homing Beacon seems to hint that theres more to this than meets the eye; Accompanying the big news as an introduction to Ahsoka Tano, an intriguing new character to the Star Wars mythos. She's Anakin Skywalker's Padawan, a revelation that's already sparking a lot of discussion. If you're thinking that's out-of-the-ordinary, you're right. But there's still more information on here to come. So, I think its time for a bit of speculating here. Just who is Ashoka? What part is she going to play in Anakin's story? Will she know about Anakin and Padme's marriage? And something else I'm wondering, could she have some sort of connection to the Sith? Does Palpatine have anything to do with Anakin being assigned a Padawan in the first place? And of course, we know something will happen to remove her from Episode III, so what will be Ashoka's ultimate fate?
