Dathomirians, also known as Dathomirian Zabraks and Dathomiri, were a subspecies of Zabrak native to the planet Dathomir. During the Clone Wars much of the species was eradicated due to earning the ire of the Sith, and by the time of the Galactic Civil War, the last known survivor was Shelish.
Biology and appearanceEdit
The Dathomiri had tattoos on their body that represented their tribal heritage. The male Zabraks, particularly those belonging to the Nightbrothers, had natural striping which they embellished with tattoos. The females, particularly those belonging to the Nightsisters, had more subtle tattoos that were in contrast to their pale skin.
The females of Dathomir, known as the Nightsisters, were dominant on Dathomir. They used the Zabrak Nightbrothers as mates. Mother Talzin gave birth to two sons, Savage Opress and Maul. Talzin lost Maul to the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, who took him as his apprentice Later, Talzin was forced to give Hal'Sted a child, Asajj Ventress, in order to protect her clans.
Following Ventress' betrayal at the hands of Count Dooku, Talzin and Ventress planned their revenge upon Dooku. Talzin allowed her son, Savage, to become Dooku's apprentice with the intention to kill the Count. However, Savage and Ventress failed. In response, Sidious and Dooku ordered General Grievous to wipe the nightsisters out. Only Ventress and Talzin survived Grievous' onslaught. Savage, discovering his brother Maul was alive, brought him back to Dathomir. There, Talzin was able to restore Maul's mind, memories, and body. Following the death of Savage, Maul and his Shadow Collective joined forces with Brother Viscus and his Nightbrothers. However, the Nightbrother village came under attack and only Maul was able to escape.
