|~ Morgan Elsbeth threatening Ahsoka Tano.|
Morgan Elsbeth is the main antagonist of The Mandalorian episode "Chapter 13: The Jedi".
She was a magistrate and industrialist of the city of Calodan on the planet Corvus, who previously provided equipment to the Galactic Empire for the Imperial Navy. She was also an agent of Grand Admiral Thrawn.
She was portrayed by Diana Lee Inosanto.
As a child, she saw her planet devastated during the Clone Wars and her people were massacred. Growing up, she became an industrialist and was instrumental in providing equipment needed for the construction of the Imperial Navy. During her time with the Empire, Thrawn became her master. After Thrawn disappeared following the liberation of Lothal, Elsbeth became aware of Thrawn's survival and his location. In the years following the defeat of the Galactic Empire at Endor, she became the magistrate of the city of Calodan. She was a cruel magistrate who would imprison and execute locals on a whim.
Learning that Elsbeth knew of Grand Admiral Thrawn's location, the former Jedi Ahsoka Tano came to Calodan to obtain Thrawn's location. When the Mandalorian Din Djarin came searching for Ahsoka, Elsbeth tried to persuade him to kill Ahsoka in exchange for a beskar spear.
When Ahsoka and Djarin returned to the city to confront Elsbeth, she ordered her troopers to kill all the citizens before engaging Ahsoka in combat with the beskar spear, which Ahsoka was unable to cut through with her lightsabers. After a dangerous duel, Ahsoka defeated the magistrate and forced her to give up the location of her master Thrawn, while the Mandalorian easily shot down Elsbeth’s mercenary Lang after a long Mexican standoff. She is removed from power, and a civilian becomes the new magistrate in her place. Afterwards, she is presumably either imprisoned or executed (the episode does not explicitly say which one).
