"I am not a natural Force wielder like the Jedi or Sith. I use dark magick to achieve power."
Mother Talzin[src]

Magick, also known as Shadow Magic,[1] was a supernatural technique that allowed a practitioner to wield great powers connected to the dark side of the Force.[2][3] The Nightsister witches of Dathomir were wielders of magick, with Daka being the most powerful of the magick-using witches.[4]

"Magick is a living thing. It arises from blood and trees and mist. It flows through your veins already, but we will reshape you to channel it."
―Shelish, to the Smuggler[src]

The last Nightsister, Shelish, described Nightsister magick very similarly to the Force: as a living thing that arises from blood, trees, and mist. Anyone could learn to use magick, so long as they were Force-sensitive, as demonstrated by the Smuggler; however, first, they must breathe in a special energized mist which transforms the blood into ichor. The ichor, which appeared as a green mist,[5] could then be used in the magicks. A special talisman was used during the ritual to energize said mist.[6]
