Mother Talzin
Where one sees failure, others see opportunity.
~ Mother Talzin to Asajj Ventress


Mother Talzin is the Clan Mother of the Nightsisters in the waning days of the Galactic Republic. A conniving witch who would do anything to secure the safety of her Dathomirian brethren, her mastery of magic makes her a formidable foe to any Jedi and even the Dark Lord of the Sith himself. Although her society is predominantly matriarchal, she holds a particular fondness for her son, Darth Maul, assisting him numerous times after his defeat at the hands of Obi-Wan Kenobi.
