The Nightsisters are a coven of witches that live on the mysterious world of Dathomir. The sisters rule unchallenged, gifted with the power to wield dark magicks. The men of Dathomir, the Nightbrothers, live apart from the witches, but are subservient to their whims. Despite their power, the Nightsisters have avoided the conflict of the Republic and Sith, content to pursue their own matters. The Jedi give them a wide berth, for they remain focused on matters on Dathomir. Count Dooku has had dealings with them in the past, and turned to them when he was in need of a new apprentice.
