Marrok could be Starkiller
It’s a wild theory, but given the similarities between the Star Wars Inquisitor and Sam Witwer’s previous performance, it’s not an entirely implausible idea.
During the first few episodes of Ahsoka, we get a sense of Marrok’s sinister, yet calm demeanor. While the character has only said two lines so far, fans are already curious about his true identity. Could he be Starkiller?
If you’re not familiar with Star Wars lore, Starkiller is the protagonist of The Force Unleashed games – yes, the ones featuring the whiny, overeager apprentice. Witwer voiced the character in the trilogy of games, which are canon.
In these games, Starkiller serves as Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, but in Ahsoka, Vader is dead. So who is beneath Marrok’s helmet? The only Star Wars character that comes to mind is Starkiller, and if Witwer is indeed playing the character, it could lend credibility to the theories.
So far, Marrok has only said two lines in Ahsoka. The first one was “You’re making this too easy,” and the second was “Don’t worry, I’ll get you next,” after Ahsoka blew up the ship she was on.
But if Witwer is voicing the character, it would be similar to his performance as Starkiller. The similarity in the voice can be attributed to Marrok’s medieval-styled helmet, which produces a gravelly, distorted sound.
The Ahsoka series takes place five years after Return of the Jedi, making the timeline different from that of The Force Unleashed games. We’ll have to wait and see if Starkiller becomes canon or if Witwer is simply portraying another brooding villain with a unique lightsaber.
In the meantime, Witwer has voiced various Star Wars characters, including Darth Maul and Palpatine in several games and TV shows.
The Ahsoka series has five more episodes. We’ll have to wait to see if these theories hold any weight.
