Last week's episode of Ahsoka, "Far, Far Away," finally introduced the live-action incarnations of Ezra Bridger and Grand Admiral Thrawn we've been waiting to see since the show premiered, but they weren't the only new characters to make their debut in Disney+'s latest Star Wars series.

Thrawn was joined by his right-hand man Captain Enoch, played by The Expanse alum Wes Chatham, and a trio of Nightsisters known as the Great Mothers. These powerful witches are named after the three fates, Aktropaw, Klothow, and Lakesis, and one of them is played by a genuine sci-fi icon!

Though this seems to have flown under many people's radars, none other than Claudia Black (Farscape, Stargate SG1, Pitch Black) brings life to Klothow, while her sisters Aktropaw and Lakesis are played by Jeryl Prescott Gallien (The Walking Dead, Ray Donovan) and Jane Edwina Seymour (Star Trek: Picard), respectively.

As far as we can tell, Thrawn has made some sort of deal with these Nightsisters, who have agreed to help him return to his home galaxy as long as he brings them with him. Potentially more formidable than any Jedi, these magic-wielders could prove to be a lot more trouble for our heroes than the Grand Admiral and his Night Troopers in next week's season finale.

Did you spot Claudia Black under the make-up or notice her name in the credits? Be sure to let us know in the comments down below.

Set after the fall of the Empire, Ahsoka follows the former Jedi knight Ahsoka Tano as she investigates an emerging threat to a vulnerable galaxy.

The series stars Rosario Dawson in the title role, with Natasha Liu Bordizzo as Sabine Wren, Mary Elizabeth Winstead as Hera Syndulla, Diana Lee Inosanto as Morgan Elsbeth, Ivanna Sakhno as Shin Hati, Ray Stevenson as Baylan Skoll, David Tennant as Huyang, Lars Mikkelsen as Grand Admiral Thrawn, with Eman Esfandi appearing as Ezra Bridger.

Kevin Kiner was announced as the series' composer.

Ahoska is written by executive producer Dave Filoni, alongside executive producers Favreau, Kennedy, Wilson, and Beck. Gilchrist is co-executive producer. The series’ directors include Filoni, Steph Green, Peter Ramsey, Jennifer Getzinger, Geeta Vasant Patel and Rick Famuyiwa.

New episodes of Ahsoka release Tuesdays at 9pm ET/6pm PT on Disney+.
