"The lives of these citizens mean nothing to me. Now, because of you, these people will suffer."
―Morgan Elsbeth, to Ahsoka Tano[src]

Morgan Elsbeth was a human female who was instrumental in the construction of the Imperial Navy during the reign of the Galactic Empire. By around 9 ABY, she served as magistrate of Calodan on the planet Corvus. Elsbeth was in possession of a spear made of pure beskar, and offered it as payment to Din Djarin if he killed the former Jedi Ahsoka Tano. However, Djarin and Tano banded together and ended up defeating Elsbeth and her forces. Upon besting the magistrate in combat, Tano demanded Elsbeth reveal the location of her master, Grand Admiral Thrawn.


Early life[]

"Morgan Elsbeth. During the Clone Wars, her people were massacred. She survived, and let her anger fuel an industry which helped build the Imperial Starfleet. She plundered worlds, destroying them in the process."
―Ahsoka Tano, to Din Djarin[src]

During the Clone Wars, Morgan Elsbeth's people were massacred, angering the woman and eventually pushing her to assist in strengthening the Imperial Navy by plundering entire worlds of their natural resources. At some point in her life, she also acquired a pure beskar staff, which she gained hand-to-hand combat proficiency in.[2]

Encounter on Calodan[]

"Where is Grand Admiral Thrawn?"
―Ahsoka Tano to Morgan Elsbeth[src]

Sometime prior to circa 9 ABY[3] Elsbeth had obtained the position of magistrate of the city of Calodan, a walled-in city located on the forest planet of Corvus. She employed Lang, a human male mercenary, to act as her personal enforcer and leader of her army.[2]

Elsbeth duels Ahsoka Tano

Around 9 ABY, [3] Elsbeth encountered former Jedi Ahsoka Tano on the city of Calodan, who confronted the magistrate and demanded that she gave her the information she possesed regarding Elsbeth's master, Grand Admiral Thrawn's location. She refused to give Tano the whereabouts of the Chiss Grand Admiral and threatened to execute the city's inhabitants unless peace was reached.[2]

Din Djarin, a Mandalorian bounty hunter, later arrived on Corvus in search of Tano and approached Elsbeth's villa, where she offered him a contract to kill Tano in exchange for her pure beskar spear. Djarin inquired where the Jedi was, as he was actually searching out Tano to have her train the youngling, Grogu as a Jedi, though this was unknown to Elsbeth. When he located Ahsoka, the two teamed up in order to overthrow Elsbeth. After a long battle with Elsbeth's army and a duel with Elsbeth herself, the pair succeeded and Tano defeated Elsbeth, ending her rule over Calodan.[2]

Din Djarin, a Mandalorian Bounty hunter, later arrived on Corvus in search of Tano, as Bo-Katan Kryze had previously told him she was in Calodan, he approached Elsbeth's villa where she offered Djarin a contract to kill Tano in exchange for her pure beskar spear. Djarin inquired where she was located as he was actually searching for Tano so she could train the Youngling, Grogu as a Jedi, though this was unknown to Elsbeth, Elsbeth gave him the coordinates in which she should be located. When Din located her, they teamed up to overthrow Elsbeth, ending her rule over Calodan, and obtaining what each of them wanted, the pure beskar spear and the location of the Grand Admiral.

Ahsoka dueled with Elsbeth herself. Elsbeth even disarmed Tano of one of her Lightsaber. However Tano succeeded in defeating her, and asked her about the location of Thrawn. Tano ended her rule over Calodan and liberated the citizens of her rule. Wing received Elsbeth's cape and became the Governor of Calodan.[2]

Personality and Traits[]

Elsbeth was a vindictive and ruthless individual, a personality molded by the pain of losing her own people in a massacre. Her vengeance and anger led her to a life dedicated to the conquest of numerous worlds, for the sole benefit of the Imperial Navy. She was willing to sacrifice innocent civilians as leverage against her enemies, openly admitting that their lives meant nothing to her.[2]

Elsbeth was also an opportunist, quickly leveraging Din Djarin's position as a Mandalorian bounty hunter to her benefit, in an attempt to kill Ahsoka Tano. [2]
