Sackhoff will be joining the series as Bo-Katan Kyrze. Bo-Katan was the leader of the Nite Owls, an elite Mandalorian unit before joining the terrorist organization Death Watch. During the Clone Wars, Bo-Katan led her troops during the civil war on Mandalore against the puppet leadership appointed by Darth Maul. Kryze wields the Darksaber and that weapon’s appearance in the hands of Moff Gideon at the end of season 1 could be the reason the character will debut in live action.
