"She bundled these things and more together not in an old, dead rancor hide, but swaddled in the living fronds of giant ferns that grew beside the Misty Falls."
―Falta recounting her story to Bug[1]

The Misty Falls were a group of waterfalls on the planet Dathomir. During the Republic Era, the Dathomirian witch Falta visited the Misty Falls. She used the giant ferns near the falls to bundle a group of items in a burial pod which would create her daughter Yenna, in a process contrary to the burial customs of the Nightsister clan.[1] Sometime between 20 BBY and 19 BBY,[2] Falta traveled to an inn on the planetoid Sídi where she recounted her excursion to the young girl known as "Bug."[1]

Behind the scenes[]

In the current Star Wars canon, the Misty Falls were mentioned in the 2020 short story "Bug," written by E. Anne Convery and published in The Clone Wars: Stories of Light and Dark anthology.[1] In the Star Wars Legends continuity, the Misty Falls first appeared in the 2003 Sony Online Entertainment video game, Star Wars Galaxies.[3]

  2. "Bug" is set during the Clone Wars and several months after the Battle of Dathomir. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the battle to 20 BBY, and the end of the Clone Wars to 19 BBY. Thus, the short story must take place between those two years.
